This is my very first blog and I’d like to share the reason for me starting my own blog.

 I have always been a huge fan of bloggers and the fact that they’re able to use their platform to influence people. I have been following several bloggers and I have seen them grow, going from 500 followers to 15 000 if not more. 

Not only have I seen them grow in numbers, but they have been growing as people and it’s absolutely beautiful. The way they motivate people and influence them in a positive way… Like me perhaps. I’m starting my own blog as many young people are doing lately. 

The only thing is, you don’t realise how much effort and time go into creating a blog. There is so many things you have to consider, and you even have to plan. As you would when starting a small business.

Starting your Blog is more than a page where you share your points of views or pictures you took in a 5 star hotel with your bathing suit looking all delicious. Because let’s face it, not all of us has the body to go all out. This is why you have to know what it is you wish to achieve with your Blog, find your niche, be creative and being able to hold your audience and keep them loyal.

So I’ve decided to share how I started and what I considered to be important questions in my opinion.

Let’s get started;

You have to ask yourself;

>What is it that I want to achieve with my blog?

>Will I be able to follow through?  Since growing your audience takes quite some time. Alot of people tend to start a blog, bet end up forgetting, quitting and losing interest. 

> What genre will my Blog be? Lifestyle, Beauty, Health and fitness, photography, etc

There is so many other things to consider, like how often will I be able to post in order to keep your followers attention.

What are you willing to do to Gain more followers. This can be having competitions, collaborating with other bloggers, advertising your Blog.

Yes, you have to spend money if you’re going to be serious about your Blog

I hope this blog has been some help to some of you future bloggers. 

Try reaching out to more experienced bloggers should you need advice or assistance with something. They won’t turn you down.

Please Read, like and comment on my blog.

Happy reading😃

Just For The Volume 

Have you ever noticed how guys have extremely long eyelashes?  I mean not only are they long they have volume too… So they could pull them off without having to use mascara or eyeliner, if that was a thing for guy ofcourse.😂 #WhyEven

I myself have long lashes, but I still need some mascara for volume for that extra POP! I invested in Essence Mascara called Get BIG lashes Volume Boost Mascara.

It costs less than R50, another reason why I love investing into Essence Cosmetics (mostly lipglosses, lipliners, Eyeliners, nail gel, eyeshadow and Blush). They are super affordable and you get excellent results with most of their products. 

It was my first time buying this specific Mascara, and I have to say I was quite impressed. The brush and it’s shape (Fat Brush Wand)? Totally helped alot with applying my mascara and gave me the needed volume. I tend to sometimes get some mascara  in or around my eye (Talk about epic fail😂) with my previously used brand, because it was a classic mascara wand, but it gave my lashes the needed volume. And I still love it.

Tip for when getting some mascara around your eye area: 

Wait until it try before removing it. This keeps you from messing up your make up around the area.

Hope you enjoyed this post!

Random Thoughts And More

I was busy doing my nails for this week and I found myself thinking about motivation and friends… 

Strange thing to think about when you’re pampering yourself wouldn’t you say? Truth be told it’s been bugging me for a while. The reason for it? I do not know, but it lead me to writing this post. I guess something came from it.

I think I’ve always been the most motivated, and optimistic person… Well, Atleast that’s what I’d like to think. I mean things don’t always go my way, but never have I given up or say I can’t and quit before even starting.

I’m a self motivator, by choice that is. I know that sometimes you need an extra push from friends or mentors, but I am a bit of a loner. Don’t get me wrong I do have friends, but they don’t know that much. They only know as much as I let them in on. 

I always believed that friends ought to know when you’re upset, angry or just in need of an ear or shoulder. I mean I am always there for them and I know when something’s off, because I pay attention. And I don’t mind being there for my friends, but it gets exhausting. Oh  My Gosh! 😨 I’m about to digress for a minute But…

Am I the only one? Sometimes our friends complain about the most trivial things. Things that’s not supposed to be an issue or things that can be fixed. I mean it’s good to get things off your chest, but come on… No one cares to hear about your 5th break up with the same guy/girl or how you like someone and don’t know what to do about it. Those are things that has answers to it and it’s pretty obvious too. 

Anyway it got me thinking why no one is ever there for you when you need someone? It’s just funny, how people expect you to always be okay, like you’re not human or have your whole live figured out. It’s kind of sad at times. 

Back to  motivation… As a blogger I’ve found that it can be a bit challenging and you need motivation to just remember why you started in the first place. 

In a previous blog I’ve mentioned how it can take some time to achieve your goals. Truth be told… I need some blogger friends… (sigh) 

Blogging is not a one person thing. It’s a community. And I think alot of bloggers don’t see that. I’ve been reading tweets on twitter about how bloggers don’t support each other and it’s quite sad. 

I love seeing people grow and I think it would be so much better if and when you’ve been part of another ones success. Even when all you did was assist in some blogging tips or general assistance. 

I don’t see why it’s so hard to support each other…


What is motivation to you? 

As a blogger your motivation would be whatever it is you want to achieve with your blog.

Whether it is to make money, reach a big audience, travel, review products… that is your motivation. No matter how big or small.

But that push you need to get to your end goal is motivation as well… and that is the kind that’s like a shower, you need it every day. 

If you have a friend that is trying something new, be there for them, support them, motivate them, and cheer them on. You have no idea how powerful a few words of encouragement can be. I am usually the one motivating my friends and supporting them, and let me tell you I actually wish I had a friend like me… sounds funny does it? 

Be there for a friend, appreciate them help them. 

Happy Blogging!

Sometimes, just sometimes you stumble on to something great.

 This happened to me the day I decided to support a friend in her venture to sell Justine and Avroy Shlain products.
I have to admit I was a little nervous about buying them, because I have gotten so used to my everyday routine products. Nonetheless, I bought myself a few goodies and to my surprise I fell in love with most of them. This would teach me not to judge a book by its cover, wouldn’t it?

The Justine products I chose was Perfumed Body Lotion called Tabasheer, Perfumed Body Soufflé and their clinically proven Tissue oil. Which are all winners in my book I have got to give them at least a 4/5? 

It smells absolutely heavenly, keeps your skin hydrated and the Tissue oil? It is the bomb. I took the liberty to check out some reviews about these products, and most of them have only positive feedback. I guess I will be buying these again.😱

Justine products can be a little pricey, but they are so worth it. 

The Avroy Shlain products I bought was, a few shades of lipsticks, Burgundy Babe, Fire Red, and Mona Lisa (which is a kind of Brown) and OH so chocolate which was also a kind of brown lip crayon, eyeliner silver and black (pencil).

The shade fire Red? Super intense, so that was my ultimate favourite. The other three shades were not as intense and didn’t quite suit me, so they have been used once or probably twice and have not been touched since. 

The eyeliner pencils are both winners to me. I use them quite often, because they are intense in shade and doesn’t come off that easily for reasons like swimming.

Nonetheless, these products are all cheap. So if you find a shade you like it will be totally worth it.


  1. Red fire Lipstick (Avroy Shlain )
  2. Eyeliners (Avroy Shlain)
  3. TABASHEER body Lotion (Justine)
  4. TABASHEER Body Soufflé (Justine)
  5. Tissue oil (Justine)

You can get your hands on these by getting incontact with a rep for these brands. 

Feedback is always welcome.

What seems like an easy decision to make, really is the decision that can make or break your Blog. Choosing a platform/s you’ll be using for your blog is not something you should do lightly as all of them requires time and dedication.

Are you up to date with social media or technology trends?

Choosing your platforms means Choosing your audience… 

Keep in mind that not everyone is on Facebook anymore as alot of people prefer Instagram or Twitter. And alot of people aren’t into the data hungry apps and prefer Facebook. Recently bloggers has found that Pinterest is another platform that is not too bad if you want a bigger audience and more activity, but as I said choosing a platform is choosing your audience.

For instance, if you’re going to be photography Blogger, your top choice would be Instagram, with that you can choose twitter and Facebook if you feel like expanding. 

Now, if you’re going to have a Beauty blog, your Platforms will be YouTube, Instagram and Facebook… Maybe Twitter, but the twitter audience are interested in news more than what’s the latest Lipstick. But if you can pull it off, why not.


Your Blog Name

Your Blog name should be something that people will remember or something catchy. Well, depending on whether it’s a personal blog or something you want to brand with a name. It’s really up to you, but you will have to be sure and happy with what you choose. 



>You can start posting.

>Keep up with the latest hashtags trends. Use it in your post as it will help you reach a bigger audience. 

>Like, follow and comment on other bloggers’ blogs to let them know about you and your blog.

>Reach out to other bloggers about collaborations or advice.

>Share the website link to your latest blog.

>And be active with your followers. Follow them back if you must. It is important that you keep your audience happy and they are there for the same reason as you… To gain more followers.

There is nothing wrong with following 7000 pages and having 7000 followers as well.

But having 7000 followers and you only follow 7 pages? You are not Beyoncé, you will lose followers with each day. Unless you have frequent Give aways.

Starting a blog is a marathon and not a sprint. It takes time, but it will be worth it!

This is just my opinion, I believe in being active with my audience, because that’s what I ended up enjoying while being big fans of great bloggers… They made me feel inspired that way.

Keep up the great work! 😋
