I don't do as much poetry on this blog as I would like but this is one of those odd days where there is a poem. Of sorts. Kind of. I haven't had much experience with reverse poetry but I have read a few. Maybe one of the most popular would be Pretty Ugly by … Continue reading Attempting reverse poetry
Incoming repost. 😅 I wrote this one in the thick of uncertainty and my own insecurities. Somehow, I find myself here again. Where is all this headed? Does this matter? Was there a better path I should have taken? Does it get better? Especially that last question! There's nothing new here but I do hope … Continue reading On drowning in self-doubt (3 easy steps)
July is done, as you know and now we are in August, again as you know. I was hardly here (🙈 me hiding behind a pillar as I confess that) and I figured I would take stock. An idea I first saw from Justynlove. So here goes; I was... Attending. Virtual meetings. My best kind … Continue reading Out with the old, in with the new!
She had never considered herself the kind who would fight over a boy. Why would she? There were plenty of boys out there. The trick was in picking the right one. Then getting them to stay. But the lament here is that she had never thought she would be one of those girls. Yet here … Continue reading the unspoken art of moving on
Of late, I have been drawn to the headwraps. I just love them. I think they make a great statement, wrap up a look and go with everything. Which is always a catch for fashion. Something that's comfortable and can go with everything 👌🏿. I also like the fact that they make a messy bad … Continue reading Culture and Fashion Week: Headline with the headwrap

So this is obviously Culture and Fashion Week and at first I thought I was boxed in by one perspective but the more I sat with it, the more … Continue reading Culture and Fashion Week: the trendsetter and the sheep
Living in a world of instant gratification has probably worn out our muscle of patience. We've conveniently forgotten that good things take time and have the idea that if something doesn't pick we should abandon it. Half baked plans and half hearted attempts. I think this is what keeps us rotating around then idea of … Continue reading Biz and Tech Week : Let it marinate.
How much do you think Disney or Electronic Arts pay their writers😏? Like seriously. Even though I feel like these are two companies I could work for for free (don't quote me on that - money is important!) Writing for those companies would be a dream. I am easily a lover of animations and video … Continue reading Biz and Tech Week : Landing the dream job
When is the right time to start telling children about money? Because I'm constantly thinking that I came to the conversation quite late. Like an active participation. Because I don't think you can make it beyond five years with no idea of money and how well it smooths life over. And at this age, it's … Continue reading Biz and Tech Week: Conversations I should have had.
It's been a heavy week, in the best week, with writing on several topics finding light in the Afrobloggers Community. It has honestly been a great prompt and wonderful information has made its way in circulation. Continuing yesterday's thoughts on learning and reading disabilities, I thought I would draw attention to language. Lebogang's post lays … Continue reading Advocacy: Lost in translation
