Look Mum! I’m on BBC News! + VLOG

The title was basically my reaction when I found out two nights before going on BBC News. I literally called my mum and hyperventilated down the phone to her. Basically, I was very excited. When I was contacted by a woman on Twitter asking me if I would be interested in appearing on The Victoria…

A break from YouTube

This post is my way of finally deciding to take a break from making content on my YouTube channel. I do not know how long the break will be but I will not upload another video until the time feels right. And here is why: I have been watching YouTubers making videos on YouTube for…

Things that happened this year that I am thankful for – 2015 + video

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-gn2k2N6_AI 2015 has been a whirlwind of highs and lows (mainly highs). This post is going to highlight some of the highs in a bid to be thankful to God for everything that has happened this year.  So, in no particular order; 2015 is the year I successfully completed my A Levels.

Jehovah Jireh, My Provider

Guys, this is a really real, really raw post, because right now, in this very moment, I am feeling some really real, really raw feelings. It is days like this, moments like these that I begin to understand why they call God Jehovah Jireh! He is a provider. When you need something, He will supply…

University, here I come

I have been making myself seem busier than I actually am in order to ignore the fact that I am going to university in 4 days and 3 nights. But I can't ignore it - on Sunday the 20th of September, I will be leaving my family home and going to university. Do you want the…

Blue on Blue – Long Sequinned Gown

I was feeling myself today. I am no fashion blogger as you can probably tell from my blog, which is mainly filled with posts of me ranting about life and people and everything in between. But today, I wore this dress and felt like a Queen. If that doesn't qualify me to write this post, I…

The Restoration Plot pt 2

Two years ago, around this time of year, I wrote a blog post on Easter. I want to share it again, because sometimes we take Easter, and what it represents, for granted. He died, but now He’s alive. It’s a miracle. We are remembering all the pain Jesus took upon His shoulders. All the discomfort…

Why does everyone blame the media? Twitter rant

Nowadays, the media never get cut some slack. Everyone takes the liberty of bashing it, repeating the many wrong components of the media.

How to become a Journalist

I want to be a journalist. I've wanted to be a journalist for quite a long while. My desire to be a journalist gave birth to this blog three years ago. My next step in this journalism journey is going to university to study it, later this year. Wooooo! Over the past couple years, I…

let it go, let it go

My last post was rather emotionally driven - more of a spur in the moment thing - and I have considered deleting it many times, but for now I’m leaving it. I think that I’m leaving it because I understand the importance of writing personally and being myself. This is a lifestyle blog, and death…

My heart hurts because you’re gone

I just found out that someone I love dearly is dead. I literally can't breathe. My heart hurts from pounding so hard and my eyes are blurred with tears. I'm hot all over. I'm writing this because I don't know what else to do. I can't comprehend this. It can't be true. The only thing…
