It has been a long journey for me and I know for many who have been in my shoes getting out of the mindset planted by those around us is beautiful. There is a relief that it comes with that can not be explained by words, or actions. You have to feel it to know…


BODY POSITIVITY: THE THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW WHEN RAISING A PLUS SIZE

Growing up plus size was so hard for me, my body blew up when I went to boarding school and from then I could not bounce back to my flat tummy. Yes I once had those believe it or not. My mother would keep saying, ‘It’s baby fat, it will wear off,’ every time someone…


BODY POSITIVITY: HOW I FOUND MYSELF

Once upon a time I confused body positivity for pretending to like my body in public whilst I tugged at my fat in the mirror and cussed at myself. I got frustrated by the names men shouted out loud in the streets no matter what I wore. Can you believe that I even started buying…

So recently a picture has been circulating of a school teacher who was dressed to kill and some have called it ‘inappropriate,’ for school. Some have said that it is ‘distracting,’ the students.

Crush #2 for today is one who fights for the woman she is and the woman she would like to see. A woman she would like to raise and a woman whom she wishes the world could see. A feminist at heart and at writing, does that even add up? Well, I am sure you…


IT’S BEEN LIT

I am such a perfectionist and it comes off as really annoying to some people, well most people. But I met someone who understands the art of perfection, he is serious about his work and making the client happy and he is is Zimbabwean! Fellow Zimbabweans will understand my happiness because on most days, you…


SET THE BUTTERFLIES FREE

I watched an episode of  Basketball Wives LA where Evelyn Lozada was battling with the decision to keep or let go of her embryo’s. She separated with her then men when they were in the process of ‘making a baby,’ if I should say. It was a very hard decision for her and I could…
