An Open Letter To Period Anja

Dear Period Anja,   I know it's hard to focus on anything except chocolate right now, but thank you for trying.   I just wanted to reach out to find out how you're doing? I know you used that Period Calculator app to find out when your next period will be, and that it let you down again. When will you learn to always have tampons on you? Yes, yes. I'm aware your handbag is always full. But is it really necessary to carry 10 lipsticks, a nail file, an extra pair of shoes, perfume, plasters, half eaten wine gums, 3 pairs of sunglasses, a banana, your hopes and dreams, a dog and 300 issues in your bag?   Okay, put that sharp object down. I'm only...

Gym Thoughts

At the beginning of this year I made a promise to myself to go to gym at least three times a week, and I am proud to say that I have stuck to this. But even though I have been serious about going, I still can't be serious when I'm there. These are just some of the thoughts I've had at gym. Oh wow, look at me. I'm at the gym. I'm such a great adult. I really have my life together. Let me just quickly check Twitter before I go in. I HAVE BEEN SITTING IN MY CAR FOR 20 MINUTES It's cool, I'm cool, everything is cool.  Ah no, now I'll have to make small talk with the super happy person at the check in counter. "Have a...

Feeling Fresh

I realised a while ago that a lot of my readers don't know what I do for a living. As open as I am on my blog, I like to keep my worklife private. But I can tell you that I work in the digital industry. Working in this industry means that you are online 24/7, and it's super difficult to plan a holiday/break when you are always accessible. But at the beginning of 2017 I promised myself that I would try. This year is all about taking care of my physical and mental health, and a big part of that is learning when to take some time to myself. And so that's what I did this past week. I went...

Urban Decay: Prep, Prime, Set

Last year I stopped attending events for a while, because I just had too much on my plate. When I received an invite from Urban Decay to attend their Prep, Prime and Set launch - I decided that it would be the perfect event to get back out there. And with an incredible view of the ocean, delicious snacks and exciting products to test - I definitely made the right choice. All of the above photos were taken by the talented Tegan Smith Photography. At this event, Urban Decay introduced to us their new innovative complexion products. Being a Hermoine Granger, I wanted to write a thesis about all the benefits, ingredients, textures, bottle size, font type, weight and density of these products. But I...

How To Be A Lekker Person

I know my posts are usually a bit more Buzzfeed than Elite Daily, but I've been thinking about this post for ages and I really wanted to set it free. I'm working on some of these things myself; particularly the "be grateful" part. I think it's too easy to focus on the things that are kak in your life, and to lose sight of all the positive parts. I hope this post inspires you in some small way.   Compliment more   I don't think we compliment each other nearly enough. And we seem to think that we should always go big with our compliments. You have no idea what a simple compliment can do for someone's self-esteem, or how much it can brighten up their day. So compliment...
