12 Personal Lessons I’m Taking into 2019

IMG_1606

As a new year begins, it calls for reflections and I like to set as many personal goals as I do professional ones. Some of these listed below are personal things I’ve either mastered, some I need to remind myself of time and again, and some are mistakes I’ve learned from the hard way. Either way, 2018 was definitely a year of growth more than ever before, and I’m writing this as a reminder to both myself and to my fellow women who could possibly benefit from this. I hope it helps set our minds and our morals on a good path for what I hope is going to be a prosperous year for all of us! (more…)

The Affordable Pills That Helped My Energy, Focus, Mental Health & Skin

Disclaimer: this post is based on my personal experience, and you should always do your own research and consult with a medical practitioner on your personal condition(s).

I’ve been using Zinplex Vitamin B Complex on and off for a little over a year now, initially primarily as a Zinc supplement for the times when my skin was misbehaving. I didn’t pay much attention to the other effects it may be having on my body, which is probably why I didn’t commit to it fully and consistently. In general, I am admittedly not very good at being consistent with meds. However, as you may/may not know, I’m on also on a constant quest to get better at managing my mental health, and as I’ve become more vocal about it, different people have offered different suggestions or led my research in various directions.

Anxiety Anonymous

ME_196_AnxietyAfter I recently spoke out about my personal battles with anxiety, so many of you reached out and sent me your stories. All I could think of when I was reading them was, “it’s so comforting to know I’m not alone” and “I wish everyone could read these messages”. So with the permission of many of you who sent through your struggles, I bring to you this post, aptly titled Anxiety Anonymous, in the hope that you find some of the same strength in solidarity. You are normal, you are strong, you are not being dramatic or oversensitive and your anxiety is valid. (more…)

A Contact Directory of Where I go & Why

_MG_0245

To answer some of your frequently asked questions, and to support a good couple of local businesses here in Cape Town, I’ve decided to put together a beauty, fashion, fitness and lifestyle directory of where I go and why. From laser hair removal to booking flights, my favourite cafe to the best home workout guides, these are the places I frequent. Hey, maybe I’ll even see you around sometime! (more…)

The Art of Being Good at Caring for Yourself

IMG_1089-Edit copy

There have been many times where I’ve fallen into a little rut where I was feeling like all my time and my life, in general, was being poured into my work and home life, and like I wasn’t doing nearly enough for myself or taking proper care of myself. It doesn’t help that I work from home and can work from my PJ’s if I want! We all go through these patches of self-neglect no matter what your lifestyle is like. I was frustrated because I thought I need to go to the gym more, I need to get back into reading and meditation, I wish I could stimulate my mind a bit more, and I felt like my hair always looks terrible. It took a little time and discipline but I changed ALL of that around and I feel so much happier and more fulfilled. I honestly and truly feel like I’m living and prioritising myself more. (more…)
