  • I wonder how many times I think my troubles are too small for God to worry about. How many times could I cry out to Jesus but don't because I can handle it. Let's stop right now and praise and thank God for giving us access to His power and His comfort in ALL of our troubles! And make a promise to try and let him be apart of all areas of our life. "Offer unto God thanksgiving; and pay thy vows unto the most High:  And call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me." Psalms 50:14‭-‬15 KJV

  • Meet Joel and Winnie! My husband and my frenchie (Joel is the slightly less hairier of the pair) Two beings I’m really fricking grateful for 🙌🏻 .... and I’m also grateful for Joels love of pop-up bbqs on a sunny bank holiday Sunday 🤤 ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Grateful - what an in-vogue word. It’s banded around a lot at the moment but, actually, for good reason ✨⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Gratitude is a super important emotion and something we often forget whilst we are striving for the next thing and living day-to-day. And whilst I am all-in for ‘levelling up’, taking time to appreciate and fricking congratulate yourself on how far you’ve come and what you have is SO important ✨⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Countless studies have proven that practising being grateful improves your wellbeing and life satisfaction no bloody end! The pluses are (to name a few): better sleep, stronger relationships, health (improved immune systems!) resilience and happiness 🙌🏻⁣⁣
⁣⁣
I use a journal to write down three things I’m grateful for every day when I creep into bed... I’m notoriously terrible at rituals and routine but am making a HUGE effort to keep up with this one ✨⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Why not give it a try? ⁣⁣

  • So often the reason why people run back to an ex is because they’re in pain and they want to run back to the memory of the person who left that hole. They’re heartbroken. Helpless. Entrenched in discomfort. So they turn back towards their ex, back towards the familiar, as a way to try and cope with the pain and discomfort they’re feeling.
To the point where they’re actually willing to live in a dysfunctional pattern or cycle if it will simply make the pain they’re feeling stop, even if only temporary.
Thing is if we continue to run from pain, that avoidance will always play out in some form of a dysfunctional pattern or cycle. At the core of the dysfunction is a wound we’re running from. A part of ourselves that we can’t sit with. The only way we begin to end the dysfunctional pattern is when we allow that cracking to become our teacher.
Heartbreak is judgement day for unresolved pain. It washes it all to the surface for a reckoning. This is why so many people jump to relationships as a way to run from the reckoning of one’s soul that a heartbreak brings. This is why so many people drown themselves in pointless pussy. Why they smoke joints to try and turn everything off. Why they run from themselves at the bottom of a bottle.
The reckoning is coming and they refuse to listen. So much so, they would rather commit emotional suicide and run back to someone who doesn’t truly want to be with them because they just need someone to press on the wound long enough to stop the bleeding, even if only temporary.
But if we don’t meet the reckoning arms wide open. It masks its control in our life by playing us like a puppet on strings through relational dysfunction.
It’s time for you to stop running and meet this reckoning by staying. By sitting in stillness. Let the pain wash over you like fucking tidal wave. Let it close in. Let it entrench you.
Become a student of your pain. Let your pain become your teacher.
What is it trying to tell you?
What is it trying to teach you?
There is a wound this pain is exposing. Get curious about it. Investigate it. Be kind to yourself.

  • I am not sure if these so called''MOTIVATIONAL SPEAKERS''are true,they
tell their real life story ,the hurdles  that they went throught to achive the success.
I only watch them to get encouraged ,whenever I feel like I  am out of track or
i just feel I am not doing something good I immediately open youtube and watch these motivational speeches 
and after that I realize that my purpose is not to listen to songs or stay idle but to ''work,work and work'' to do something for  myself,to learn from the mistakes and ameliorate myself everyday.. These speches give me a new hope ,I feel like they are just made to prod us ,to accept our failures and work to become
a better person..I don't focus on gospel of story I focus only on message that they are trying to convey.... If you people want motivation ,don't worry these speeches are enough to  motivate you... #motivationalquotes #successquotes #success

  • Skincare Review: Fourth Ray Beauty.
____________________________________________
BFD Cleansing Oil - this oil has a lightweight, watery consistency and it does an excellent job at removing makeup (including eyeliner and mascara) without drying out the skin or leaving a residue. It's gentle enough for my acne-prone skin so I'm a fan. The AM to the PM Gel Cleanser has a fresh scent and this cleanser is super gentle yet effective. Enriched with litchi and lotus flower extract, this product works well as my second cleanse and removes any traces of excess oil without stripping the skin.
____________________________________________
The Fresh AF Face Mist contains rose and cucumber water and this works well as both a toner and as a facial mist. Like the cleanser, this product is refreshing and gentle on the skin. I use the Matcha Face Milk in my evening routine and this product contains matcha milk, rice milk, kale protein, turmeric extract and peach extract (basically ingredients that would work well as a smoothie too 😂). If you aren't a fan of facial oils but want to add some extra moisture to your skin, this is a pretty good option since it's moisturizing (without being sticky or oily) and leaves my skin feeling plump.
____________________________________________
I purchased these products from Colourpop's website since Fourth Ray Beauty is a 'sister' brand to CP.

  • Makeup Review: Revlon Super Lustrous Matte Lipstick in 'Superstar Brown' (R119 for Limited Edition 'Shoot the Moon' packaging).
____________________________________________
I recently bought this lipstick (in the original packaging) but the lipstick broke and melted (thanks to the Durban heat) so, when I went to repurchase it, I saw that it now comes in galaxy-themed LE packaging (which I love). Superstar Brown is the perfect nude lipstick for my skin tone (NC44) - pink with a brown undertone. The formula is also pretty amazing - smooth, creamy, easy to apply, even and pigmented. To be honest, I find that this has more of a semi-matte finish that's super comfortable on the lips. But, because this lipstick is creamy, it's not the most long-lasting. Despite this, I still love the shade and formula.

  • Makeup Review: Urban Decay Single Eyeshadows in 'Loaded' (bottom) and 'Lounge' (top).
____________________________________________
I have enough single eyeshadows but, while I was swatching these ones in-store, I was super impressed by the formula and I decided to purchased these two blue shades. Loaded is a teal blue shade with a blackened base while Lounge is a gorgeous purple duochrome with a blue flip. The formula is incredible: these shimmers are smooth, even and super pigmented (one layer provides full opacity). Also, the consistency is somewhat thin but this does not interfere with the performance of the eyeshadows. These products are easy to apply on the lid and, in top of an eyeshadow primer, they last all day with minimal fading.
____________________________________________
I'm a huge fan of this formula - which is surprising because I'm not a fan of the eyeshadow formulas in UD's Naked palettes. However, there are two cons. Firstly, I wish these single eyeshadows came without a compact (so I can add them to a magnetic palette) and, secondly, they are expensive (around R250 each). A close dupe for Lounge is Colourpop's Wishful Winking while a dupe for Loaded is Coloured Raine's Forbidden.
