Integrity and Your Career

  One of the most important aspects of my life right now, as a budding 25-year-old professional, is my career. It is a part of me that I hold very dear to my heart, always needing to polish and maintain with the utmost dignity. One day I want to look back on the journey that…

Friday Flows: I Waited For You

Its Friday! My favourite day of the week has finally come and  I want nothing more but to see my mother, curl up on the couch with a big cup of coffee to wind down this  beautiful weather, and catch up on missed family shenanigans. As with every Friday (well, whenever I don’t  have a pile of…

Unfuck Yourself

It is a new year! Well, we are 19 days into it but still, it is a new year and with the dangerous and sometimes reckless lives we sometimes lead, we should  be ecstatic and truly grateful that we made it into yet another one! Whatever it has in store for you, may it prosper you and leave…

Not Of The Same Stock

This love thing is a very tricky business. People that aren’t  in love yet and are in desperate search of it, sometimes seem to me as though they do not  understand the magnitude  and amount  of  work that  is  required  in this love thing. Fine, maybe it’s not ALL horrible, but I have had enough…

Divergent Series – Veronica Roth

I am now into books that are a series. Why? Because I cannot bare the loss of having just 1 feeding of a good book. I long for more, start going crazy and obsess over the outcome of the story, whether the author really felt that there was nothing more to add that could possibly…

Hlomu The Wife – Dudu Busani Dube

I have 2 sisters, both older than me and both very different from each other. While the oldest is firm, a perfectionist and loyal follower of all things involving history (she could give you a blow-by-blow account of the Royal family in one breath), the arts and old school RnB music, the other is a free-spirited…

Friday Flows: I Smoked A Spliff with Jesus Christ

I am a Christian, I love poetry, am a feminist at heart and have an indescribable  relationship with the herb. Put that all together and you get one of my favourite poems by Lebo Mashile, the poster girl for all things feminist and African. Today I share “I Smoked A Spliff With Jesus Christ”. A personal reminder to…

Why I Haven’t Been Writing

Today I went through blogs I follow, as I always do each morning. I laughed my way through my morning coffee after  bumping  into an old post by Amy Sue Smith on the power of putting the  word “girl” in a book title (it’s a very booming  and successful trend, I might add), see here,…

Sit Down Tu

I haven’t blogged in a while. Because of the many things that have been happening, moving into a new neighbourhood, having to adjust to new routes and a different (and much earlier!) time to go to work every day, it’s safe to say that my level of tiredness has reached new heights. While getting home, catching up…

4 Days And 4 Nights

For the past 2 weeks I have not been blogging. I have been distracted. Something is on my mind and it keeps popping up every time I try to do anything. It’s just there, eating away at me. As previously mentioned, I am the youngest of 3 girls. I was raised by a single woman; by…

Friday Flows: Because Sometimes You Need To Cry With An Agenda

My second love to reading fictional romance novels and drinking Jacobs Kronung with  a cigarette in my hand, is reading  poetry. Poetry that is clear and to the point. Poetry that gives one a clear and uninterrupted view into the mind and  feelings of the author at that specific time. Poetry that is unapologetic and unforgiving for the feelings it manifests within…
