When life takes over…

It has been a little while since I last posted but mainly because I didn’t want to bore you all, with my moans and groans of life! Yes I admit, as much as I try to stay positive life does sometimes take over! As I spend time reflecting, daydreaming and thinking, it is inevitable that at times life will take over but that doesn’t have to be a negative thing!

I have really enjoyed the last week or so, basking in the sun, spending time with my loved ones, recharging my batteries (Easter half term) but really just aspiring and creating. I tend to find that I do that quite often in my moments of peace;I have the most innovative ideas and ‘light bulb’ moments. I’m not sure about you but that often seems to be in the shower!?

Needless to say, I think it’s always important to ensure that you make life productive!

I’ll be back soon with a more meaningful post!!

Sun, Sea, Sand and…

It’s fair to say that day trips at the beach are an imperative part of childhood. I can still recount my endless trips to the seaside with my family; fish and chips (with added tartar sauce); waltzer ride (that literally made me sick); sandcastle building and treasure hunts (with my treasured bucket and spade); trips to the local sweetie shop (rock of course). All of these memories are ones that I strive as a parent to provide for my child.

There is something about the sight and sound of waves against the shore, which creates a complete sense of awe. I don’t think I was designed for the confinements of bricks and cement, as the outdoors provides a new realms of existence for me.  Continue reading

From annoyance to determination!

Just a quick one this evening…after spending the majority of today working on my “1st Date Chronicles” vlog, I was devastated when the finished video, refused to upload and subsequently I lost all my files!

Technology doesn’t seem to be my friend today and in all honesty a part of me wanted to give up (flight mode) but instead I have decided to channel that frustration and annoyance to motivation (fight mode).  In my opinion, there is nothing wrong with feeling frustrated or annoyed but do some rechannelling to transform those negative feelings into something positive!

The new and improved vlog will be up by the weekend! dscn0333

A day of lurvveee

Across the world, 14th February marks the day of love.  You’ll often wake up to a mixed bag of messages from doting husbands/wives; super shocked and excited girlfriends/ boyfriends; empowered or depressed singletons.img_3530

As a ‘singleton‘ I don’t dread this day neither do I rant about being proudly single, instead I choose to embark on a recruitment campaign for the “Self Love Club.”  P.s. My journey of “self love” will need a whole separate post.

In case you need a lil pick me up, I have gathered some interesting, funny and real dating stories, that just might make you chuckle!

It was our first date and he told me to dress up…

“Fire Fire” Our day at the museum.

Today I witnessed clear evidence of Spring; sun shining and blue sky, with a hint of cold wind.

We decided to venture out to the Museum of London today, as my daughter is studying the Great Fire of London.  They have an exhibition called “Fire Fire” which runs until April 2017; it does cost (not much though) but in my opinion was worth the money. It re-told the historic story in a clear and interactive way, suitable and enjoyable for young children and adults alike. I would highly recommend!

I am a terrible mother!

It’s hard enough being a young single working mum but even harder when your child is not ‘lil miss perfect.’

I was not the best behaved in school and by fate (and some stern words from my parents), I managed to succeed to University.  Suffice to say, the realisation that my child would experience issues with her emotional behaviour, somewhat broke my heart!  Read more!

New and updated blog for 2017!

It has been a very long time since I last used this medium to voice my views, feelings and really just to inspire.

A lot has happened since I last posted on here, both good and indifferent but its given me the motivation to get back on my blogging.  To be honest, I have in mind some kind of direction, focus and vision for this page and that is to speak from my heart…

The honest, the scary, the undiluted truths of my heart.  Some topics may be familiar with you and others may not appeal to you at all; that’s fine.  I just hope that at least one person can feel blessed, enlightened, comforted and inspired through my own life journey.

Please spread only positivity on this page, as love is the only true healer.

Thank you in advance.

Models of Diversity – We talk about models of diversity but who are they?

Image

Having once been a black model in the industry, I can profess to how hard it is to secure a decent modelling contract and truly be recognised as a top model.  However, society must be careful not to solely label models of diversity as those from the “black or minority” groups.  We see everyday in magazines, music videos, films and newspapers of what is generally deemed as a beautiful model or woman but the question arises; where does this definition come from?
