We all seem to be getting more self-obsessed by the day. Turn on your TV or open a web browser, and narcissism hits you smack in the face — everything screams ME! ME! ME! In our quest to become richer, skinnier and more popular than our neighbours, we are losing a vital component of what makes us human — our compassion.

I created this blog in hope to do something positive or good for at least one person I’ve never met before. In this day and age social media is a successful way to reach out to others and make a difference.

I’m just a woman, sharing my words for all, hoping they can help you in some way or the other.

My Best Friend & I. Together since 1989.

My Best Friend & I. Together since 1989.

I’ve struggled with confidence, anxiety and loving myself, but finally at 26 I can say I am comfortable with who I am. The journey to get to where I am has not been easy at all, but I can say it has been worth it.  To myself, I’m a work in progress.

Fear of the unknown and not meeting standards of others had held me back a lot. Although, had you met me you would never know how I truly felt, you would have had me down as a genuinely happy person. I had become a master of deception and managed to deceive many about how I truly felt. The only person I never could deceive was myself, because I knew me. I knew I wasn’t happy and I knew I couldn’t shake of how I felt until I addressed that fear.

I cordially invite you to join me on my journey as I share with you my life and my passions.

What to Expect:

  • Product Reviews – As a woman that loves all things beauty, I will be sharing with you my honest views on the purchases I make. I’ll be informing you whether or not I think something is a buy or bye product. There will be a lot of beauty talk here, so get your purse ready.
  • Fashion – I don’t have the body of a woman that would be featured in Vogue, but I do have a body that I dress. As a woman that doesn’t have that supposedly ‘perfect’ body, I will share with you how I dress and my own style.
  • Books – As a lover of books (I’m that person that could not like the convenience of a kindle) I will be posting my thoughts on the books that I read and also offering you the chance to receive some of my favourites.
  • Weight Loss – After losing 7 stones, I still have more to go. I will be sharing with you my fitness routine, recipes and other tricks and trips I have learned or will try out to reach my goal. There’s no quick fix (not that I have tried, anyway) so time and willpower is needed. Now I’m 7 stones lighter, I can tell you that this journey, irrespective of how challenging it can be, has allowed me to know and understand myself better than I ever had. It has been difficult but enjoyable at the same time. As I continue, connect with me and let’s reach our personal goals together and united.

As I log my life and passions in this blog, I hope throughout it all I get to know you too.

Recently both my blog and instagram had been hacked and all content deleted. Unfortunately, I’m having to start over. I can’t understand why anyone would do such a thing, but it has happened and I can only move forward from here. So, in case you wondered what happened to previous posts and instagram pictures – that did.
