A Wellness Journey

A happy October to all of my readers! In honour of mental health awareness month, I am really excited to announce and start our new Wellness series here on the blog.Reflecting on how the act of self-care has recently impacted me, I wanted to start a series that would allow me to embark on a […]

Self-care Hacks

When I started my blog, long ago in January, I promised myself that I would hold myself accountable to write and publish one post every week. One of my main goals for the year is to post one blog post for every week this year, a total of 52 posts. Creating this goal has honestly […]

A Masterpiece

When deciding on what source of motivation I wanted myself and my readers to focus on this month, the verse Psalm 139:14 kept popping up. Psalm 139 has been a chapter that has seen me through some really dark times. It has always been a source of encouragement, an ultimate reminder of God’s promises and […]


I don’t know about you, but time is beginning to feel as if it’s passing us by at high speed lately. This is why I really felt the need to briefly speak about timing, for the last week of August. I feel as if we live in what we can call a ‘microwave society’. We […]

Me First

Funky Town

Let us be honest and real with each other for a second. We have all, at some point in our lives, dealt with really bad ‘funks’. ‘Funks’ as in random phases we may find ourselves in where we deal with many different feelings and emotions, usually ones that aren’t so positive, that can feel consuming, […]

Kind Words

When thinking about July’s source of inspiration, Proverbs 16:24 really stood out to me. This month, I want to focus on the power of ruminating on kind words. I want to highlight the importance of prioritising yourself, your thoughts, emotions and feelings. I want to reiterate the importance of self-love, self-care and self-acceptance as well […]
