Slaying At This Adulting Thing: The Finance Edition


Adulting is hard and you best believe that because I'm not the only 20 - something year old who has said this - there are quite a few of us who have. So listen, I'm about to break it down for you so that maybe you have it a little easier than i have lately. In this post, I will breaking it down into the financial aspect of adulting. I'll have follow-up posts that speak about school, friendships and relationships.

Of course I've got to start with the cash money because chances are you're currently not handling your finances in the right way. Our generation is all for splurging over the weekend, living our best lives and not worrying about a single cent - unless you consider hustling Mc Donald's money as a worry (I did this once after a night out clubbing (it's safe to say I've got this hustle thing on lock).

My Scars Don't Define Me, I AM CLAUDINE 👊


I Stumbled across Claudine when I was casually going through my Facebook timeline. A mutual friend of ours had shared a post where she had uploaded a beautiful picture of herself, with make-up on, smiling. It wasn't the scars she had that captivated me but rather the caption she had put. I stared at the post for a while, in awe at how confident and full of self-love she is.

We all have our own stories to tell, stories of physical, emotional or mental scars. Make no mistake, our scars do not define us but rather how we overcome them does. Inspired by Claudine's positive approach to her scars, I decided that I had to interview her for the blog. See, our scars do not have to be like claudines' - physical burn scars, perhaps we're battling with self-love because of the extra fat around our waist or because of the shade of your skin regardless, we can learn a lot from Claudine, her confidence & her self-love

Intern At Night, Self-Made Business Woman By Day


I live within a generation that is tired of working for corporate companies and interning for a meager R3000. My generation is all about acquiring entrepreneurial skills and becoming their own bosses. It's not just young millennial men who are hustling but women too. There are numerous millennial babes who are grinding just as hard as men if not, harder. One such boss babe is Kgaugelo Dolamo. Founder of Dolamo Hair. 

She's a hospitality intern at night and a business woman by day. How does she balance everything at once? Seriously .. I'm struggling here. She recently registered Dolamo Hair, a business she started of glaming babes up with fresh hairstyles for their matric dance and for slaying in their daily lives. This babes is making serious moves. She caters to a wide variety of women, she does braids, dreads, weaves and her business is not only limited to the ladies but the gents too. She's a woman of many talents who endeavors to learn and do more while she's still young. So, naturally I HAD TO interview her for the blog because like ... I really want to know how she does it! well, the answers are down below 👇👇

Lessons Learned From Driving School


I Initially wanted to do my drivers license in automatic because when my dad taught me how to drive with manual, he failed miserably. Simply because he is the worst teacher ever. He''s impatient and was changing the gears for me , which technically is not how you drive. My dad enrolled me into diving school, for a vigorous everyday lesson at 11:00, I was practicing with a manual car. 🚕🚗

During my evaluation the instructor assessed that I could drive but that I had a few things to work on. He didn't mention what but it was basically my steering, my observation - which i feel is unnecessary actually - and then the usual parking and stuff. He was a great teacher, extremely patient and we'd laugh at a lot of things together. It didn't feel formal, technical or strict type of vibes - I could be myself and that's what I liked.

June Letter From The Blog Editor

Photo by Papaver rhoeas on Unsplash

It's June... yay 😐 - said only a bunch of people that have achieved a lot within the first half of the year and are super-jetting, positively into the remainder of the year. Not to say that I haven't accomplished a fair amount of goals and milestones. I'm just disappointed at my habit of procrastination and at the fact that flight tickets are crazy expensive during long weekends.

I haven't had the time to sit down and deeply analyse the last six months per say, but I do have a general idea of what needs to change and what plans (that have beeen in the pipeline) need to be finally implemented.
