It’s very scary to imagine that God trusted me with raising a whole human being. Did you know that half the time it’s practically guess work? There’s no manual to raising these little humans. In between sore breasts, cries that drive me nuts and nipple grabs that have me screaming all over the house, I’ve finally managed to spare some time aside and share what was my go to maternity style/wear while preggers and do some catching up on our lives with a month old litu human. PS: I’ve been postponing this blog post for a while now since I’ve been trying to catch some sleep when baby is asleep but today, we’re doing this! Also, I felt I needed the break. Being in the house full time can drive you insane. I remember telling my very good ol’ fried Carey before I had baby that I’ll stay in the house for three months, why would I want to leave anyway. Last week on Friday, I literally called her and took back those words. Lmao! Mama loves her baby but needs a break too!
Hey Yo!! Before we get into today’s post, I want to deeply thank everyone who sent their warm and sweet messages following the GRAND arrival of our little one. We are so grateful and we thank God. Now let’s get into the details of how those 40 weeks 5 days we’re probably the most emotional and draining weeks of my life because girllllllllllll what a ride. What a ride that was🤷. First off, with today’s post, my intentions are pure ladies and maybe gents. I’m not here to discourage anyone but simply just sharing my own experience to hopefully enable you to be very open minded about pregnancy. I was so used to hearing women say what a magical journey it was and how they’d do it again in a heart beat and I expected it to be the same for me. Honestly speaking, mine wasn’t anything close to magical. I had some very few great moments here and there but I’m not certain if I’d do it again in a “heart-beat”. A lot of thought will have to go into considering baby #2. Hah! Again, this is just my own personal experience as every experience is different.
I think it’s high time I stopped looking forward to weekends and just let days unfold as they come. Of late, all my weekends have just been a total mess. Total shit load! Excuse my language. I honestly cannot wait for the day my health/body will be back to normal again. It’s just overwhelming to feel so sick constantly and at the same time deal with drama and BS. Anyway, what’s life without a little drama? But as I’m getting older, I’m finding myself losing patience in a lot of things. This is unusual of me cause I’ve always been such a patient person (I think) & the tolerance to BS is slowly dwindling. I remember stating this a while back in my taking stock post. People are always trynna take you for a ride, take you for granted and the list is endless. Human beings! Urrrgggghh! I mean it’s the 21st century. What the actual F! On a lighter note, On Saturday, I didn’t know I was wearing two completely different shoes when I was leaving the car. I normally change my right shoe everytime I’m driving and this time I totally forgot to change and I walked around looking like a lunatic and there’s no way I’d have gone back given how the rains we’re pouring gosh!
Hey yáll! Happy Friday! I finally got my hands on Fenty beauty’s stunna lip paint! I mean, It’s never too late. I decided to try stunna cause 1) You can never have enough lipsticks; 2) It’s been a minute since I got my hands on some new lippie and I wasn’t settling on anything less; 3) Lippies make me happy and bring joy to my life; 4) Everybody is trying it out and it looks so good on every skin tone! and 5) I love me some badgalriri! She’s amazing! C’mmon. I’d probably buy into everything she says, buys, sells, makes, name it… literally. 😉
Howdy howdy! Let me start by saying, I finally finallyyyy settled in my new home. I anticipated it was going to be super duper crazy moving but not as crazy as it was considering how unpredictable the rains we’re. I’ve always been a huge fan of organizing spaces, but this time round, I probably was more exhausted and drained than I enjoyed putting things together. Getting rid of all the clutter was just way too hectic but again, my OCD levels do not embrace assistance in this department so I’d rather take 100 days organising but have it done right. Anyways, glad to have that done and dusted. Well, in today’s post, it’s all about going unusually bold with lipstick! And hey, happy FriYAY! 🙂
Happy FriYAY! Yasss, first post of 2018 is finally here. Hooorrayyy! Well, obviously I’ve been away for a while, nearly 2+ months now. It’s been a rough couple of months from being quite “unwell”, losing a total of 8kgs (noooooooo) and basically felt like I’d lost touch with the world and with myself. I have since added 33ograms though, Lol! I honestly felt like I was just existing but not in the body I’m used to normally. But I’m glad to be finally back on my feet and finally feeling normal again! It gives me so much relief. Let’s get into in now; Taking stock.
Well hello guys? It’s been a minute! :0 The year is almost coming to a close and my oh my, didn’t that year just go by so quickly? If you sit back an re-look at the life you’ve lived in 2017, Is it a life that you are proud of? Would you change anything? What are the mistakes you’ve made? Have they made you wiser? What have you learnt so far that completely changed your way of thinking and your life? Have you forgiven people who hurt you? We all have someone/ people who broke us at some point in our lives, key for me this year was to let go of that anger and despise I felt towards them. Letting go off that load and letting God has made me a much happier person.
We all have that one person in our lives who makes our heart skip a beat. You long for when they will call or text you and once they do, you forget all your troubles (cliche but true). You instantly get that butterfly feeling that takes control of your body. You can’t point out what exactly about them makes you grow weak or why you probably fell in love with them in the very beginning. Isn’t it amazing what love can do? But isn’t it also uncannily striking when we don’t know if it will last forever or just for a short while?
