Twenty. Freakin’. Three.
I’ve been drafting this blog post for a while, as it was my birthday last Saturday. A truly bittersweet day (for a drama queen like me). I knew for a while that when I was to turn 23, I should have a job, have graduated from uni other cliché things revolving around having a totally perfect self-centred life. Achieving most of these things, I was still underwhelmed the entire day because really, I was just that one. Year. Older.
Introducing the first in a series of posts, ‘Can We Just’, where I wanna talk about real-life issues, things that no-one really talks about (yet) and just generally things I wanna get off my chest. This is inspired by Chynna’s series on her blog. To start off with, I’m going to chat about hyper-pigmentation and how I’ve grown up with it as a brown chick in the West (lol).
I was thinking about what my new years resolutions should be, but I realised they were built on the flaws of 2017. So I thought, why not think about some actual real core stuff I need to improve on, instead of whacking out new goals outta nowhere. Also, as a self-proclaimed commitment-phobe, I’m starting small with a cute little list of three things I did in fact not do. So anywho let’s get started.
I worked in New York the summer of ’17, armed with a bulletproof Instagram ‘list’ of many a drool-worthy place. Heartbreakingly, I did not manage to visit every place on the list. However, I did do some damage (to the temple I call my body) through some of these places, as well as getting some very juicy close up shots of cookie dough. So here’s a little guide to some of the best sweet spots I came across, because what else is indulging in NYC for.
A quick post just to let anyone reading this know that my previous website disappeared into thin air […]
I interned abroad in New York City during my summer this year, and it was my first time visiting, working and living in America. Asides from the borderline obsession with ice water and freezing cold AC in every corner, here are a couple of things I learned about being a New Yorker along the way!
After spending a quick weekend in Stuttgart, I thought I’d share a couple of cool things to do if you’re stuck for time during a lovely German winter!
What a better way to start this blog off than a post about a recent adventure, in Mauritius. With my dad being from Mauritius, we’re lucky to have got away for a few weeks over the holidays this year, getting to spend Christmas Day in the sea New Year’s Eve on a beach! And so it began where all good adventures begin, with an atrociously uncomfortable airplane nap!
