The Only Checklist You’ll Need to Navigate Through 2022

Since the beginning of 2020 nothing has felt certain. Everything from the job market to romantic relationships became unstable and for some of us — has been ever since.

So instead of creatingContinue reading “The Only Checklist You’ll Need to Navigate Through 2022”

How to Balance Blogging With Full-Time Work. A Collab With Blogger – Accidentally Adulting

The Day I Changed My Coffee Order

Change. It’s a daunting word and one that most people tend to forget to incorporate into their personal dictionary. And why would we? We spend such a significant part of our young adulthood trying to form a protective blanket against unforeseen changes that ripping that blanket off seems absurd. Preposterous even. Yet most of usContinue reading “The Day I Changed My Coffee Order”

Solo Travel – The Good, The Bad and Everything in Between

It’s that time of the year where your Insta feed is saturated with European travel picture with hash tags like #candid and #travelgram attached to almost every photograph.

ASMR – The Internet’s Silent Therapist

Take a look at that picture. Before I discovered ASMR I always assumed a powder brush had one purpose and that was for the sole purpose of powder foundation. Turns out we now live in a time where people have a whole bunch of interesting fetishes ranging from BDSM to standard role-playing because people are gettingContinue reading “ASMR – The Internet’s Silent Therapist”

Move Over the Birds and the Bees. Let’s Get Comfortable With This Dinner Topic.

Let’s face it. Neither parents nor kids enjoy the ‘sex talk’. Some parents try to avoid it like the plague.

Let’s Get Comfortable With This Dinner Topic.”

How Establishing a Skincare Routine Helped Me in More Ways Than One

Skincare has become a modern day requirement as of late. It’s all about the hydrating face masks, snail creams and weird concoctions of avocado masks.

What No One Tells You About Growing up a Tomboy

The other week as I jumped out of my friend’s ute ( yes you read right) I miscalculated the height of the vehicle and fell down on my palms and knees. Hard. However I was able to get back up and brush off the disturbing amount of the blood gushing out from the scratches, withContinue reading “What No One Tells You About Growing up a Tomboy”

4 Effective Ways to Schedule Creativity

Shows like Jane the Virgin always make it out to seem as though writing is the most magical and enchanting experience of your life. There is literally an episode in Season 2, Episode 10, where the younger version of Jane is seen typing away on her laptop. In the bus. When inspiration strikes. However, ifContinue reading “4 Effective Ways to Schedule Creativity”

How to Develop a Sense of Patience. When You Don’t Have Any.

If you happen to know me (and I mean really know me), there is a good chance that you also happen to know that I’m a very impatient person. Always was.
