We are ANGRY

A criminal was beaten to a pulp by motorists because he tried to hi-jack an innocent old man. Another criminal was beaten and thrown into the bushes for the police to find after he tried to steal a car from a poor mans home.

Our people are angry! We are afraid everyday to live in our homes, because it no longer feels safe. We are afraid to go to the park, malls, schools or even the movies. We can’t afford security guards and so we rely on your officers to make us feel safe.

Our people are bickering and fighting. And when they fight they hurt each other and damage our schools and universities.

You say you are here for us, but whenever we ask for your help you ignore us. Do you know what it feels like to be us? How can you? You have a mansion, with servants and too much free time, so you mate and bask, while we work tirelessly to pay for your fancy lifestyle.

Our people are lost, and they need to be guided. Is our turmoil not loud enough for you to hear?

We trusted you, we voted for you, and now, 22 years later, Tata turns in his grave. You have let us down. You have let him down.

Why have you become selfish? When was it ok to forget about the poor? Tata said overcoming poverty was an act of justice – it is not natural to be in poverty. So why do you smile  back at us with no response, while you get fatter on our hunger?

We are losing respect from our global friends and soon we will be exactly like what was once the bread basket of Africa.

We need more. We deserve more. We want a new, younger, more degreed person, who will lead our people into salvation. This new leader will not be jailed in the past. This new leader will understand and empathise with the past, and act in accordance to righteousness of being good and doing good.

We need to be saved – or else our people will get more angry… and if we don’t do something soon… their anger will end our nation.

You can help us get better – all you have to do is change.

We need change – change for the better. Change to be sure of a brighter future. We don’t want to see our leader in the news for bad things. We want to see our leader making news for being great – like Tata was.

We need another Tata!

We need a saviour!

God Bless Africa

It’s not so much about what you wear. It’s more about how you wear it. It’s also not so much how you wear decent clothes, but more that you are decent in character.

As we move into a more modern age, with everything becoming more commercialised, more ‘out there’ and loud, we often lose focus of what really matters.

People are angry and rude which is why they have little respect. I see it in the work place everyday.

I used to think perhaps it was me, that I was doing something wrong, but as I grew older and worked for longer, I realised it was never me.

We have moved into a more ‘free’ society – but are we really free?

It is NOT ok to be rude to someone even if you are upset.

It is NOT ok to throw a tantrum at the office if someone hasn’t done something (there could be many variables why they didn’t, why don’t you find out nicely?)

It’s NOT ok to think you are better than others because you have a higher ranking at work, or otherwise.

It’s NOT ok for you to spread your miserable attitude onto others

I am tired of rude people.


Less is more …. 

We have moved to a new and improved way of staying clean, feeling sexy and looking good.

We live in a time of full body waxes and taking ‘less is more’ to a whole new level.

Even the usual Bikini waxes are becoming more and more unpopular as the much ‘awwwwwed’ Hollywood or Full Brazilian takes center stage in today’s sex driven society! 

If you need a crash course, this may help:

Have you ever had a full body wax? If you haven’t, I recommend trying it – just once – you will literally feel like a new person and I guarentee your world will change – forever!

When you feel beautiful, you look beautiful! 

If you’re still feeling icky about the thought of some stranger checking out your assets… Just change the way you think! This person is a professional and trust me, they really don’t want to see your stuff or talk about it further! It’s their job and everything stays behind closed doors… And after a few visits, it starts feeling normal and ‘unawkward’.

I now have hearty conversations with my Beauty Therapist while she attends to my grooming needs… So give it time!  

Being well groomed can be an expensive habit and I agree, is difficult to maintain regularly if you can’t afford it. I recommend subscribing to Farah Dukhai as she has amazing DIY tips (there are many more amazing bloggers, but she has become my favorite so far).

If you watched The Wolf of Wall Street, you would have picked up when Leo’s character talks to his Dad about how women are all clean and his dad responds by saying how times have changed.

And it has, tremendously so too. We have come so far that I have the freedom to blog about it!

So whether you love it or not… It is better to have said “I tried” than not having experienced showering and climbing into bed under clean sheets just after a wax!!! 

I say YES to the pain and YAY to being born in our modern times! #HairFreeWomen
