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

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.

Dear Black Parents: Our Perspective on Black Tax

Black tax needs no introduction because of its popularity amongst black people. For those of you that don’t know what black tax is here’s a definition: “the financial responsibility of providing for extended family” There are a lot of differing opinions amongst millennials when it comes to black tax because some are for it and some are against it. Another factor that results in a difference of opinion is circumstance.

Skin-Care Tips No One Tells You About

The reality is that we don't all have amazing skin and that's OK, because we're not all going to have amazing skin. You might think that from my stand point - blessed to have never had pimples/acne - that I don't have the slightest clue on what it feels like to struggle with problematic skin. False. I have skin problems of my own and I don't always get complimented for my skin - Mostly my smile and dimples.

I know a handful of babes who go all out in watching YouTube tutorials of skin-care routines, featuring babes with the most amazing skin obtained from oats/fruit masks, skin-oils and a handful of beauty products. I feel like there are unspoken skin-care tips that people don't realise when it comes to finding the perfect skin-care routine for themselves
