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

The Best Time to Buy Flight Tickets ✈✈



There’s a saying that goes: “You make your money in Joburg and you spend it all in Cape Town” and perhaps this is why the Johannesburg to Cape Town flight route is one of the busiest routes in the world. I'm not entirely shocked as this is my most frequent route. The highest I've ever paid for a flight ticket on this route amounts to 1.9k (for one ticket 😒) and it definitely dented my wallet. Needless to say I was quite broke for the duration of that month - It was April.

I thought that booking flights well ahead of time was all I needed to save some money when it Came to mini-vacays over the weekend (I learnt my lesson the hard way) but, I've stumbled across even more helpful tips.Timing is key, knowing when the best time to buy an airline ticket  is can save you a lot of unnecessary heartache that comes with booking a 1.9K flight ticket.

Balancing my 9-5 with my 5-9


This year I really underestimated the pressure and stress that comes with balancing school with work. People/I make it look effortless when in reality it’s a bucket-load of work, stress and exhaustion.

I changed universities this year and adjusting to Varsity college with UNISA’s perceptions did not go well. I was introduced to something called turn-it-in / safe assign and got issued with a warning for plagiarism – all in one semester. I now participate in online tests and tasks and the workload isn’t just the prescribed textbook, lecturer slides and extra resources but also the learning units underneath each module on the online platform. WORK, WORK, WORK and more work.

May Letter From The Blog Editor


Can you believe we're literally a month away from being halfway through 2018. Scary isn't it? For me it's because in June I need to have a little sit down with myself and assess how I've progressed throughout the +- 6 months of the year. Check my goals, my achievements and milestones. it's basically going to be a reflective period. If things need to be adjusted they will be and if I need to reality-check myself, I will do so.

Overall I'm quite okay with how everything in my life is going, even though I'm neck-deep with school and the stress it causes me. My positiviy reassures me that I WILL πŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺkick ass when it comes to examinations - If I stick to my study timetable then everything should be okay. My goal is to basically pass the first semester. I'm not being unrealistic and expecting distinctions, I just want to pass. The distinctions part will come in second semester.
