    adulting things I suck at

    The title of this post is so juvenile but also so suitable for what I’m about to say. Sometimes, when the dishes are piled up in the sink, the washing basket is full and it’s the last week of the month and the cupboards are looking bare, I feel like stomping my feet and going to sulk in my room because adulting is hard. I learnt about Close Corporations and who did what in 1802 at school but I never did learn how to get it right as an adult. How to manage my time so that I have enough to do everything that needs to be done and pay…

    March in Review

    This is a bit late considering we are already past the first week of April but I feel like I can’t let the team down by not doing my month in review so here goes.

It all had to do with how I started the year off – with a completely new mindset, positivity pumping through my veins and a new found passion – this blog and my Instagram account. For my month in review posts I plan on sharing anything worth mentioning, whether it’s good or bad. Luckily this month it is going to be mostly good and I am honestly really grateful for that. So without further ado, here is my month in review (rhyming like…

    Dear body shaming brand

    I have to start by asking what you were thinking. Did you really think that an advert where a fat cake topper cracks her wedding cake and then proceeds to fall into it while her husband grabs her arm and tries to save her from possibly the most humiliating scenario, and then stating “don’t ruin your big day” would be well received by your target market? Being in the weight loss industry there is no possible way you can play ignorant and say you didn’t know that this would be seen as body shaming? But you probably didn’t care about that because your goal is to sell weight loss products…
