“Do you suffer from smiling depression?” by Jennifer Savedge

  I thought this was a pretty apt description of what depression looks like today. Too many people walking around hiding behind a smile. The truth is most of us are too preoccupied now to notice what is behind  that look of perfection. I thought this article by Jenn Savedge “Do you suffer from smiling…

Chapter 12 : Petra

“The hardest relationships to leave are the ones that aren’t terrible”   She reached out on the other side of the bed for the third time that night. It felt cold and the frame of the bed seemed wider than it had in the past. She knew it would be. She also already knew that…

Chapter 11: Babs

Babs wasn’t afraid on the first day at her job at the film company. If anything, she felt excitement. She wasn’t afraid ten years ago, when Kay told her she was going to abort her baby, so she could go back to school. When she had to sit at the hospital lobby and wait out…

Review : Why Wonder Woman is a relevant movie for our times

There is an internal conflict that emerges when she realizes that the reasoning behind war runs darker and deeper than the orchestration of one dark force, Aries. She begins to understand the depravity of humanity is because of a desperate need for power, nothing more. In Samuel Trevor’s[Chris Pine] words “Sometimes people are just bad”

Fear is a bitch

Fear is a lying son of a bitch who refuses to go away. It can be unrelenting in its pursuit of you. It is a shameless fraudster who knows her poison is just as good as the first time she came around and won’t hesitate to try again. This post is pretty quick to the…

Opinions…

My sister told me something smart today when I called her to vent. “She said people who call others opinionated  are people who simply do not understand why you do not agree with them. They have a struggle understanding and appreciating that we cannot all see things the same way. Because the truth is, we…

For Karabo

For me, this should not be a woman’s fight. Rape and physical abuse should not be just a woman’s burden because she is likely the one a tragedy such as this will happen too. Do not get me wrong, I have never been prouder to be able to speak and share my grievances the way i can now. Female writers paved the way for people like us several years ago. I will proudly own my truth and own all of my ‘woman’

But I cannot deny, that it is hard job.

Review :Novan Coconut oil cleanser

I’ve read rave reviews about coconut oil and its benefits on pretty much every lifestyle blog there is on the internet. And while I love cooking with it, I was a bit skeptical about using it as a cleanser. I mean, I am pretty sure I know many girls who complain about having oily skin…

Love Gridlock : Are you even listening?

They say you are most pensive when you’re half asleep. I will probably need pegs to hold my lids open but my brain has a mind of its own. I am very sleepy writing this post. So a dear friend of mine sent me an article on “How to keep love going strong”, http://bit.ly/2kHXOM9 . I didn’t want…

Of Selfies and Self-Worth

I sat by a beautiful girl at church several Sundays ago. Or rather she sat by me, because she was considerably late. She had her hair nicely done,wavy, black and long. Her make-up highlighted in all the right places with not an eyebrow out of place. Her bright pink lipstick made the perfect pout.. It…

Slim Tea Detox review : I couldn’t make it past the third day!

So I kind of slipped in my last post about fat-shaming in Ghana, that i was about to try Slim-tea detox. It kind of makes sense since i am also on  a weight loss journey. So i am pretty much ready to complement my expercise regime with healthy diets and detoxing remedies if they work….
