Wow, writing/ blogging is so so difficult.
I was never ready, for some people it seems to come so naturally. I am jealous.
Most bloggers (from what i have seen), have it all figured out, the theme, their way of writing etc etc. right down to using the right pictures, its like a job! I’m not surprised though because social media (or online content) has developed tremendously (hey look at me I’m using big english). Oh wait! I digress (hahaha).
Anyway I was on youtube the other day and I came across a vlogger or youtuber, I’m not sure what they are called, but someone had a video where they were discussing their career as a youtuber and looks like these guys get paaid . I then bumped into the same blogger on a Standard Bank social media campaign and thought wow!!
I’m not saying that I want to pursue a career in social media, but I find it so fascinating. It’s always amazing when people get paid for doing what they love, or doing what comes naturally to them. Amen to that!!
Anyway here I am writing about things that have nothing to do with what I had in mind when I clicked “write”.
Basically this post is about all the things that I’m currently doing/ loving/ interested in. Here we go.
I’ve recently taken an interest in make-up. I’ve hardly ever worn make up in my life, most likely only on special occasions like graduation or weddings, so I thought let me try this out. I’m usually always a plain Jane and I am tired of that,most of the time I would just wear lipstick which sometimes disappears during the course of the day.
Now I’ve started doing my eyes and lips consistently and always making sure that I have lipstick in my bag to consistently touch up. I’m soo scared of foundation though, i feel like it will ruin my skin :(.
Up until a few weeks ago i kid you not, i only owned eyeliner, lipstick and some foundation i bought maybe 4 years ago haha. So my friend @missjuiced and i went on a make-up shopping date this past weekend. I didn’t even know where to start, especially since the make up world (just as social media) has evolved so much. Now there exists things like primers, concealers , bronzers etc. that I had never heard of before.
But baby steps, I’ll keep practising and watching more youtube videos 🙂
This is me with my eyebrows done, eyeliner and some nude lipstick 🙂
Gym and Health
The least said about this the better 😦
I am currently reading the The Book of Joy: Lasting happiness in a changing world,a book by the Nobel Peace Prize Laureates His Holiness Tenzin Gyatso, the 14th Dalai Lama and Archbishop Desmond Tutu written by Douglas Abrams.
I love love love this book, I am enjoying it so much (will probably write a review about it once done)
I have also been reading Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden. This is really an amazing story and I don’t understand why I have been reading it since July 2016 and I am still not done
Currently on my playlist is a lot of Prince (i feel like this is consistent). Prince is always on my list like ALWAYS.
Jidenna – The Chief ( i actually just saw online that he is in South Africa, but i can’t find any info about where he will be performing and now I am stressed because he is in Johannesburg and I’m currently in Cape Town)
Bruno Mars – 24k magic
Leon Bridges – Rivers (this song was brought back to my playlist by a new series called Big Little Lies, continue reading for more)
Khalid – American Teen
….and many more.
Mhmm what else did i want to mention?? oh yes
Big Little lies – starring Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman, this series focuses on women and their issues. At first it poses to be a murder mystery but you quickly learn that actually that is not the focus of the story but what these women go through, from rape to abusive relationships to dealing with infidelity, a must see!!
<Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon and Shailene Woodley>
Ok that’s it for now, I’m out of ideas and tired of typing. Till next time 🙂
