You are probably tired of my come back stories and apologies haha but I owe it to myself too, to evaluate why I have been so inconsistent. It’s been partly procrastination the other has been wifi issues. It a long story why I have been unsuccessful with installing at our house but that’s not what you are here for. Let’s take stock
Making :The most of free wifi connections whenever I come across them. Someone told me I shouldn’t be excited about free things but I mean,come onnn!I have since tried applying for one but the different pricing that I got put me off and I haven’t gone back. Ask me how that has been of help,smh

Drinking : Warm water in the morning. Rooibos like never before, stoney ginger beer and minute maid apple whenever I go out

Reading :
A lot of self help books. I’m also in a whatsapp group where there are occasional books being posted

Wanting : To be a wholesome Christian. That doesn’t mean I haven’t been one. I have had to sacrifice somethings that I love and to me,  it’s a journey toward wholeness

Grateful for:  A lot of things in my life. I will be cheesy and say God keeps showing up in my life and its true. I am grateful my birthday comes in five months and I have been consistent with who I am, adjusted  accordingly and grateful for the handful of friends that I have.

Smelling: OH SO HeaveNLY (Cashmere caress) hand lotion. It’s the most sweet smelling thing I’ve owned in a while

: About finally being a bridesmaid, being a godmother, about the future as a young adult. I am excited about where am at,at the moment and it only gets better from here.

Choosing your personal happiness is not a selfish thing to do. Recently, I had a situation where I pretty much had to choose me or regret it later and I chose me. I felt guilty for not considering other factors but my future self will thank me for making that decision.

 26th March. My life was changed forever, five years ago

: Black Panther wasn’t all that for me. You don’t have to come for me lol,I feel that movie was over hyped. I do miss watching series online

 Every-time I’m with him. He is sunshine in human form

Grown yall!I remember writing a post on ‘adulting’ and boy was I clueless. I am now into adulating full throttle hence I should rewrite and update some new findings.
Cooking: When I feel like it. I have my cooking for Africa days then certain days when I ask myself  if eating is necessary. I also want to gain a little weight. I’m open to tips and tricks

Playing: Sarah Jakes Roberts’ “From Grace to grit” sermon several times. She goes inn on how to do life basically

Enjoying: Discovering new artsy ,fancy, outdoorsy ,picturesque, serene places in Zimbabwe. I have written a list of places to explore in my journal and explore them I will.

Till next time...

It’s been a hot minute and I thought..which other way to bounce back than in the month of love! It’s my hope you had an awesomentastic Christmas, New Year’s and you have 2018 going steady and well. I have been alright, thanks for asking. Here is my version of a girly and romantic dinner-with-bae outfit. I don’t own any scarlets, so pink will deliver.
These sleeves say sophisticated and open,flirty even. The neck detail and pointy heels made this, the it outfit. I wear this bag everywhere, it puts everything together nicely. Happy Valentine’s, remember to love yourself first xx
Till next time

If you've been bruised, broke a nail, fell into a drain,into tall itchy grass,got a driver angry they had to get out of  their car and shout at you, then you understand the struggle in learning how to ride a bike and will appreciate this post. 
Over the weekend, I had a talk with a good friend of mine, I'll be her bridesmaid type of friend. We discussed about life after uni,moving home and adulting stuff. Funny thing is we had some similar views such that we agreed random people's attitudes towards the idea of moving home from where ever country you've been can influence your subconscious mind negatively. 
It's one thing to be advised then it's a different ball game when you make decisions based on what was said,most times by people who haven't done what you're about to do. Everyone needs navigation but sometimes figuring life out is a personal thing, just like riding a bicycle. You can only be pushed but individually, you balance and paddle at your own pace. Drops mic 
Till next time, be mindful of who and what influences you and...

Sometimes I look like my mum,most times I look like my dad.Chubby cheeks,a big nose and lips.I have his discolored toes and flat fingers. I don't remember if it's my siblings or a friend who once told me my fingers look like a hammer fell on them haha. It's funny now but it used to bother me. I didn't wear lipstick or smile because I thought I have big lips already. Boy did I almost miss out! Sometimes I look in the mirror and see my siblings or my aunt. It's crazy to know you can be a shadow of something bigger or something already known,you can conform and be the look-alike,the think-alike,the do-alike,the copy cat. Maybe copy cat is too far fetched but you catch my drift right? Its amazing what happens when you find yourself and be 'the rebel'. I found my smile,found my style and still am on the journey. My birthday was on the 2nd and my little sisters asked if I was going to blog about 'things I've learnt so far'. I told them no but I guess this is what I've learnt in summation. Faith and Raviro, this is for you.On my next birthday remember to sing 'how young are you' old does not exist in my vocabulary xx
                                                                   Till next time..

Making :Serious packing decisions. It's one thing to love a piece of furniture or clothes,it's another thing to sacrifice space for it.It's not that deep but it's imperative decision making

Smelling:Green tea air freshener  

Excited: That Game of Thrones and Being Mary-Jane are back.I can now be a couch potato and feel no shame

Knowing:Group chats are not that serious haha 

Bookmarking:August the 2nd It's my birthday!

Watching: A lot of movies and reality TV. Sometimes I have to hold back because the drama is a lot!

Giggling: Because of how I take scenarios personal.I was asked hypothetically about situationships and I went all in with my opinions.I laughed it off later but boy was I in my feelings lol. I don't think I can make a good lawyer 

Feeling:Excited but uncertain about what the future holds. However,I'm open to whatever's about to be served 

Cooking:Anything that comes to mind as long as the ingredients are accessible. I'm inspired by a girl,cookingbycaz  she cooks unconventional meals  

Playing:Nhema by Exq, I loove the song 

Enjoying:Late nights and late mornings.Had almost missed chilled days where tea is a first thing on my mind when I wake up

Taking Stock Twenty-One

I will not embarrass myself and explain why I have been gone because I too am not pleased with my inconsistency but,I'm hoping there won't be a repeat unless it's beyond my control.With the formalities out of the way,have you ever walked into a shop,into a sale and found the perfect piece you didn't have to think twice?This piece fits the description,the closet and the body.If i do say so myself.
I've been reading a devotional on identity and learnt that sometimes your need to be validated and acknowledged might actually be due to low self esteem.Because you don't esteem yourself,you turn to crowd-esteem.Deep huh?Know thyself,love thyself,esteem thy self. With your confident self,where would you wear this outfit to?
       Till next time..

Grateful for:Genuine people in my life.

Looking:Different almost everyday. I have been playing around with my look and it's been fun.
