Monday= PRODUCTIVE DAY

Hey GUYS, what’s up !!

On Monday I don’t know what most of you guys do on your Monday’s, whether it’s going to work,going out to eat or just simply staying at home to relax ! Luckily for me I don’t have uni in Monday’s so I’m able to relax for a bit before getting too bored and finding something to do !

I stayed at my friend Alphas house along with our friend Tino the night before we contemplated getting some wine, why? Because apart from water it’s one of the best beverages but did that happen ? NO. The idea of leaving the house and walking all the way down the road, was tiring in itself, so we ended up just going to sleep.

Check out my comfy night outfit, courtesy of Alpha’s closet.

I’m going to keep it real with you (because I wouldn’t be myself if I wasn’t) but who knew cleaning your teeth with your flannel with a smiley piecing would be so difficult (I forgot my toothbrush don’t judge me)

GYM

I decided I needed to go to the gym within my uni accommodation to keep up the momentum that I’ve had in the past few weeks. The gym honestly motivates me more than it ever has to be honest.

The treadmill is my bestieeee, and that’s what I usually go on first but I decided to try something new just to switch it up a bit by starting with some stretches and working on my legs and my abs today. Doing 3 sets of 20 Russian twists are NO JOKE ! I damn near passed out!

Snack

Usually after the gym I don’t like to eat anything too heavy and so I decided to have a pitta bread sandwich with egg. I used my sandwich toaster which I got from Wilko which I think only cost me £5-£7 which is a bargain and I’m all for a great bargain! #bargainbaby

Now I would show y’all a visual of my meal… but it was not pleasing to the eye…especially when hot sauce is thrown in the mix!! I assure you though, it was BANGING!

My day ended with me slaving away at a computer with hopes of me completing my assignment before the deadline comes shooting around the corner!

How do you enjoy spending your days ? Are you more chilled out than me on your day off or do you run around like me ?

I WANT TO KNOW ♥️

Let me know in my comment section.

Until the next post my beautiful people !!

Let me tell you a little something about these FAUX LOCS

If there was an award for the blogger who is the most indecisive when it comes to her hairstyles and being less creative, I think that award would be mine, each time.

With loads of iffing and butting about whether or not I would get faux locs I eventually did it for my 21ST birthday, and I can honestly say it was one of the best decisions I’ve made: HAIRSTYLE WISE. Even though there is a strong love and hate relationship between me and this hair on my head, I love it.

One thing I would say though, it was heavy as heck when I first got it done (not for the faint necked) My faux locs are quite big so that may be a playing factor but boy oh boy was it heavy! Going to sleep comfortably is a joke lol and trying to tie it up; for-get-about-it loool. You need one of them big ole’ headbands we used to rock on the front of our foreheads back in year 7 hahaha. I can’t speak for the slimmer faux locs but I doubt people experience these similar problems with them.

I decided to go for colour this time just because I hadn’t had colour in a long let me emphasis that, a LONG time.

If I ever had colour, the majority of my head would be black with some colour. I rarely ever went for a full head of extensions with colour and trying this kicked me out my comfort zone.Which I’m glad it did.

This year I’m gonna start experimenting with different styles colours and just going away from my usual stuff ! I usually wear my hair in a finger coiled hairstyle when my hair isn’t in extensions or if I’m not wearing weave. Which I also have not had in what feels like decades.

I’m in love with the concept of wigs and being able to back it off when my head gets too hot or just taking it off just because… TRUST me I have no shame I’d take my wig off every and anywhere LOL. My sister being the wig connoisseur that she is will definitely be the person I go to when I’m ready to break my wig-ginity.

My friend who did then for me told me I could have them in for 2-3 months which is good considering it took 6 hours to do, it better last LOL

What do you think? Have you guys ever had faux locs before ? Did you experience itching, or is that just me… let me know !

Growth in the struggle

My lecturer made a quote made by a graduate at their graduation ceremony, and he quoted ‘ if you’re not struggling, you’re not growing’ and this really resonated with me.  He distinctively brought this up due to a number of us in his class struggling with what is going on in his lesson and some of the things that we’re being taught. In essence, what I took from this particular lesson was hat no matter how much you’re struggling, we’ve all got to start of somewhere.. no matter what the task may be. Learning another language, learning a new skill, it may all start of rocky and the struggle may be complicated and a bit of a problem at first but as time goes on everything come with ease.. especially with time.

The Crab Mentality


This refers to a pot of crabs. And in this circumstance, individually, the crabs could easily escape from the pot, but instead, they grab at each other in a order to prevent one another from getting out. Most of us may feel as though we are stuck in a hole and there’s no way of climbing out.. Now this could all be because of the dragging down of others that probably diminished your self esteem and your fuel to your fire that kept your passion burning.

Now the analogy in human behavior is that members of your life or in your environment will attempt to ”pull down”, or ”hate on” – diminish the importance, of any member who achieves success beyond the others, out of envy, self-hate or competitiveness.
This would be based upon the idea that  the fact that they may see someone else getting themselves together or bettering themselves.. Instead of raising them up.. the thought process that they end up possessing would be ”If I can’t have it, neither can you”

 Simply put and to end this blog because I don’t like to ramble on.. It’s best that we try to uplift one another and lean on one another for strength rather than breaking each other down because in the end.. Two heads are better than one and one finger isn’t nearly as powerful as a fist.. 

”No one is useless in this world who lightens the burdens of another.”

-Charles Dickens  🤗

I know we can all out our hands up and testify that we’ve all been through a period in our lives where things do not go according to plan and we have to suddenly change something in our plan in order to get things running smoothly. 

I just had to run up, across a passage and down some stairs in order to catch a train. But this was all due to the change of platform at the station. Now can I be mad.. Nah not really. I enjoyed running.. Saved me the possibility of working out 😀  I just took that change in platform as a change of planning that’s all. Heck! It’s still taking me where I need to be so I’m not fussed. 

A change of platform in ones life doesn’t always mean it’s a bad thing. It’s just about the possible ‘train’/ opportunity that can take you to where you really need to be. 

The struggle of the snail

Well well well, whenever it starts to rain, in the UK, these little creatures called snails seem to pop up and appear out of nowhere. Now have you ever seen a snail move. It’s sooo slow ! Now if you pay attention.. The only reason the snail is moving is to get somewhere right. Just as everything that usually moves; its aim is to get somewhere. Now we all no a snail moves at less than 1 mph ( not scientifically proven, just my opinionated joke) but even though it is moving absolutely slow, it’s still going to get where it is going… Eventually ! 

So now, where is this leading to you might be wondering. We may all be in a position in our lives where we feel as though we aren’t moving at the same pace as others and I believe that even though this may be the case we all have our own lane that we’re travelling in, and trying to focus on others lane and what they’re doing may cause us to fall off or even crash and burn. Plus staying in your own lane, there’s no traffic and you can get to where you’re going in due time ! 

Of course I’ve been through the stage of my journey where I’ve looked at thought ‘hmm, theres other 19 year old making a lot of money and buying this and buying that.. It’s not fair’.. yadda yadda yadda right now, in my own life I’ve come to a conclusion that everybody has the possibility, ability and potential to succeed, it’s all just about having focus, confidence and persistence to push that passion into first gear in order to get it moving.. Keeping an eye on what you’re doing will allow you to improve your craft and steer you in the direction to motivate someone else to move.

Privacy

Im a person who I would say is quite private and will only let particular people know the things that I really want them to know and if I believe they will give me some form of support or . Which can be a good thing but also a bad thing as I’ve never been one of those people to tell out the whole of my business to people day in and day out. I’m still learning to not be so private with people around me because when I’d be going through some stuff it would literally be me, myself and I because I caused that for myself. But on the other hand, there’s the whole not wanting to seem as though everything is consistently going south in my life whenever I open up to someone and let them know how I’m actually doing rather than the false ‘I’m ok/alright’.. I’m still learning to be a bit more transparent about things in my life to others, but it’s either pride or even fear that stops me from putting that into fruition. 
Ok, ok. Sometimes I can even put it down to pure laziness and the lack of motivation to even want to speak sometimes but I know that opening up would do me a lot of good. 

Better out than in -Shrek 😀

Refresh.

HAPPY 1ST OF MARCH !!
It’s been a while I know I know, but I’ve got a sweet and always short thinking exercise for you guys, and all I want you to do is just think about my post in detail and just simply reflect. In times like this it’s quite hard to sit down, chill and actually reflect because of our busy lifestyles or just simply being glued to screens all day long 🙂

I recently posted a comment on my Facebook stating quite frankly that most things have an expiry date and this can also be applied to some relationships. I also stated that when it is actually evident that it’s time to throw away or put aside an old thing, there’s no use in keeping it around, it’s rendered useless..

I would suppose many people have friends and family that they wouldn’t want to ever think about throwing away, or distancing themselves away from someone they’re close to or have known for a very long time. If they’re not benefiting you in any way in terms of support, care, love. Checking you’re okay, simple things like that, they don’t need to be around. Okay now obviously that sounds quite harsh and quite unfair but it’s a bit like having that thing in the back of your throat dangling thing.. (The Uvula)..

Yeah that. It just sits there but what is its actual purpose. 

Maybe if it was cut out of the back of our throats then maybe it’s true purpose will be revealed, who knows. So quite simply put just think if the people closest to you are just like that thing in the back of our throats (Uvula) maybe you need to question their core effectiveness in your life.

Have a great evening.. Morning. Or whatever time of the day that you actually read his post, have a good one 😛 😉

3 months into 2016…

Happiness is key 🔑

I love reading magazines, I mean who doesn’t. Finding out the latest trends or the latest info about which celeb is dating who can be quite interesting. But reading through these magazine and I look at the faces of the celebs and they’re smiling and they look happy, they’ve got more money than most people would dream about. I always tend to start thinking ; with all of these materialistic things are they even happy with themselves?
Take Kaitlyn Jenner *previously known as Bruce Jenner* he was an Olympic champion, had money and fame had everything one would probably hope and desire for but what happened?.. He wasn’t happy with himself, because he couldn’t be himself. Regardless of the ability to be able to buy himself a lambo or Porshe. He could not be 100% happy unless he was able to express him self in a way where.. 
It’s a bit like an Egyptian mummy if you ask me. Pretty and glamourise on the outside but on the inside its just a written old mangled body that’s being eaten away. Sorry for the visuals; but realistically we all. Must understand that when you start to have all these materialistic things yeah it can make you feel better but once you have it the feeling of happiness is there & it disappears. Some will go out and buy something else to satisfy their itch. 
When does it get to a point when your materials start to become something that you have to have? To the moment when you start putting in so much of your effort and time in order to bring forth that feeling of happiness. 
So clearly.. Happiness starts with self first.. Hypothetically speaking. Being happy with who you are as an individual, so that you don’t have to be reaching out to all these different materialistic things and relying on them to bring you happiness.
