Thank You 2019

Soweto, South Africa
Hey guyzies, hopefully everything is great and okay. 
2019 tried me in all aspects of life as type this and reviewing time monthly 
I can't help but smile and say
2019 You Tried Me. 

I recall in January I had my first real panic attack which lasted a good couple of days, and since 
I identified my panic attack I haven't had one stretching for days, 
I would like to thank God for that. 
I also had to deal with a reality of being a single mom ( I never like sharing personal personal things here on the blog but I just have to put this out there) yeap I'm a single Mom and never planned for things to go bad there either but God has different plans for my life so, 
thank God for that I guess. 
Left my job because I got tied of working the same job in different companies and not being valued enough, plus my boss was a ***** and I was just done so, 
thank God for that. 
My weight is at an all time high because I can't stop myself from eating two bags of potato chips in less than 10 minutes for a while I never saw it but I think I have food addiction because I have soo many emotions bottled up however I have no outlet (which is supposed be creating content/blogging) however it just added to my anxiety because I began comparing myself to everyone under the Sun and forgetting my own inner sunshine. however I'm glad that I'm typing this,
so thank God for that.

Blah blah blah blah just wrote done a few things that made my 2019 suck however I powered through like a soldier and partially showed up when I was meant to show up but I forgot to 
show up and be selfish for me. 

In 2020 I'm saying enough with the self-loathing and more with self-love. 

Hopefully we get to share this journey together. 

See you soon

A Fun Christmas Lunch 2019

Soweto, South Africa
Merry Christmas guyzies, hopefully everything went well and that your 
Christmas was just amazing. 
This year I spent Christmas with my two older sisters and our kids
which was just wholesome.
As I get older Christmas means spending time with family
 and eating loads of food. 

My sister was in-charge of the main and dessert dishes however
 I made the starters just to take the pressure off, off her. 
The day went by quick and just before you know it we were all full 
without even eating dessert, the dessert was super 
enjoyable the morning after though. 

The Starter

- Prawns
- Chicken Wings
- Meaty Samoosa's
- Sparkling Wine
- Orange/Guava/Fruit Juice 

The Main

- Turkey
- Gamon
- Sauteed Red Cabbage
- Steammed baby carrots
- Grilled Potatoes
- Tuna & Macaroni
- Green Bean salad
- Gravy

- White &Red wine
- Sparkling wine
- Vodka/Whiskey/Amarula
- Fruit Juice 

Dessert

(pictures not take because the kids got to it before I could take them)
- Chocolate Cake
- Triffle
- Vanilla Cake
Overall Christmas is a fun time to spend with the family and friends.
Take advantage of it because as the years go by 
the family unit gets smaller and smaller.

Take care guyzies.

See you soon.

Revlon Gift Sets Under R250 + Giveaway

Soweto, South Africa
2019 Holidays | Revlon Gift Sets Under R250

Preparing for the holidays this year has been a bit overwhelming I can't lie, because 
there was a wedding at home and the clean up from that has been a nightmare for the 1st two weeks
of December have been just a headache. 
At home I'm known as someone who loves Christmas and when the Christmas Tree didn't go up
on the 16th of December the kids began giving me a side eye, and I'm sure one of them 
was starting to call me the Griche because the movie with the 
same name had been on repeat the whole day. 
So the subminimial messages have been heard kids and Christmas in on. 

I'm just going to do everything last minute and I will take you on that journey with me.

First thing on my list are presents then food. 
That's it I have only two things on my last minute Christmas adventure.
