4 Cliché (Not so Cliché) Lessons From A Short Trip.

I have a love hate relationship with a lot of things and situations such as with skirts as I wrote about in this POST. I have a love hate relationship with traveling. I absolutely love to see new places, learn new things and all that but I hate the long distance that has to be traveled as a time always comes during every journey that I get claustrophobic and then there's always one or two accident scenes on the road. It's not always pretty. You'd probably think I'm talking about a 7 hours journey but No. Laugh all you want but a 3hours with almost 30 minutes journey inspired this post while I was looking out of the window at nothing in particular. I realized some lessons the journey thought me and though cliché, I thought to share it still on the blog as this act would make the lessons stick and also to reach out to someone who might need this.

The Insecurity Tag : 10 Things I'm Insecure About

I came across this tag on Instagram (Follow me HERE ) and I realised reading about the insecurities of other people really made me feel something not exactly because I could relate with their insecurities but because it warmed my heart and inspired me in ways I can't explain. This is why I decided to share a few of mine: both the ones I used to have and the ones I still have. The tag says ten and I hope I'm able to come up with that many.



1. I used to be really insecure about my face in Secondary school because pimples ridden. I remember that when I was in SS1, it was at its peak and I used to talk to people especially seniors with my face down. I got tired of hearing "What happened to your face!?" every time someone was sending me to go fetch her water or whatever the errand happened to be.

2. I'm pretty insecure about not having any stereotype talents. Singing, dancing, acting, drawing and the likes. I'm not exaggerating when I say I used to think I was th…

SKIRTS: A love-hate relationship

Don't you just love how inspiration for posts come from the most unexpected occurrences? I definitely do. I'm currently on industrial training/attachment to an hospital and part of the rules and regulations is that we have to dress corporate. Good news for those who put on skirts/gowns every other day and bad news for someone like me who wouldn't mind wearing trousers to their wedding reception not because I don't want to look pretty in a dress but because I feel more comfortable in it.
Just before the training started, I tried to picture how everything would be like and groaned when I realized I'd have to be on skirts almost every day and I remembered everything I dislike about putting on skirts. I thought Fridays were exempted until my supervisor said something about my trousers on a Friday even though she was putting on one herself saying something about mine just being 'different'. I was unable to get her to explain but at least that spurred me on to w…

2 Months Hiatus : Where have I been?

NOWHERE

Not literally but Wow, would you guys believe that I barely even checked my blog throughout the about 2 months hiatus? I wasn't exactly that busy, maybe I was, thinking about it now but I also just don't like reading what I've posted because I don't want to go all "Omg, that's way too much information" and then probably delete a post. I've been away for so long and the hardest thing about being away for me, is coming back. Gosh, it has been so hard! I went from being busy with school work to having a break and then being busy with another school related program. During my break, I actually brought out my notepad, drafted posts, wrote down bloggable topics, searched through pinterest and every other thing. I avoided Instagram a lot because trust me, no matter how confident you think you are and how high your self esteem is, seeing that other people are posting and carrying on with the blogging process would definitely do a little something to y…

9 Chores : From Mundane to Therapeutic

To be honest, I never knew there was such a thing as therapeutic chores especially as I literally grew up hating the word 'chores' especially on Saturday mornings. Though, I used to go on and on to friends about how washing plates was therapeutic for me, made me feel better and cleared my head, I thought it was just one of those things plus I assumed it was so because my major chore as a child was washing plates. And then, one day, my head was really cleared to the extent that I had to search the internet for the term Therapeutic Chores and see if others could relate. I was expecting to get asked if I meant something else but no, I got a page full of websites talking about chores that were therapeutic.

I actually do not enjoy chores. I'd rather be doing something else. I found out that some people actually go about the house searching for things to clean but not me. Even after I drafted this post, I was in an unpleasant mood one day, needed to get out of it then I remembe…

Least favorite things about being sick

This is a totally random post. Words were forming too much in my head and even though I know it's not much to blog about, I remembered one of the reasons I started blogging - to reduce the story forming rate in my mind- and decided to type and post it afterall.
I generally hate everything about sickness but being under the weather for few days last week made me remember every one of the reasons.

1. Smell of drugs: Makes me nauseous and I'm sure everyone can relate. Then, there's always the tendency to throw it up which is why injection is bae. Immediately I got injection, I felt really better.

2. The general helplessness : Having to depend on others for almost everything. It isn't fresh.

3. The pain, tears that lead to headache : I'm one of those people who cry cause of illness. We know crying worsens everything but we really can't help it. The doctor asked me why I was crying, I gave her the honest answer that I didn't know and she found it funny.

4. Havi…

What the location of your Breakout says about it

I enjoy reading skincare posts a lot and so I'm always on the lookout for topics to read up on and I definitely get a lot because the internet seems to be full of lots of inquisitive people like me and thankfully many experts/dermatologists to make everything easier. When I started reading this topic up, I had no plan to publish it as a post because I didn't think I'd see much as the question came out of nowhere but there was so much to digest and read that I knew I had to share on the blog.

More than 50% of the pimples that appear on my face are always on my chin. Always. I got tired and that's what birthed the research because even after abstaining from all the 10 Beauty Mistakes that could be causing breakouts I shared last year, they kept coming back! Reading up on it definitely reduced stress for me as the location of the breakout lets me know to a high degree the exact cause and what I can do to salvage the situation instead of worrying about what mistakes I mig…
