One thing i am trying to learn is to keep my head OUT while i am making the lemonade that life sometimes forces you to make, because i tend to disappear and pull myself towards me whenever life gets tough, which there is nothing wrong about however i cannot take a hiatus whenever life throws lemons my way as it negatively impacts my work and ugh not because of a boy (or girl haha) Nah.
Let me start by explaining that this post’s initial title was ‘A Queen Indeed’ you will find out why towards the end, and it was supposed to be published last Monday but i had so many difficulties with the photographs i got defeated i couldn’t use them, the new title ‘Gingham Love’ goes with the new images (guys remember i taught myself this blogging thing and i am still learning, i get so frustrated sometimes by the time i could fix the picture issue i was already over them as it was too late). Here’s the post;
So, I managed to pull off two trends in one go here (yeah you can tell that I am proud of myself hey? Lol), the millennial pink colour which I bet is a yay for everyone, yay? I mean it has been pretty much everywhere and it is amazing. And the it item/s of the season, sweatsuit. Now if you are thinking what is this millennial foreign language i’m speaking of, it is what Pantone calls “Rose quarts”.
Funny enough if I had published this post a few months ago, I would have said something about true and foe friendships or about how disappointing humans are, let me quote myself from what I had already started scribbling back then “Maybe some or maybe most people just aren’t for me, perhaps I am not for them, either explanation humans are disappointing”.
I am so excited this post is finally ready for you guys, i love my culture so much and reading this gave me goosebumps! It was a special day for a dear friend and i am delighted at the fact that she agreed to share it with the world, for me; It is a very educational post as not many have the correct idea of what Umemulo really is, non-Zulus AND Zulus. Sharing such articles makes me fall inlove with this platform of mine even more! Here goes…
Six years ago, I was a small town sixteen year old more or less alone in this big city, honestly how I made it is another story whole for a book so I won’t get into it but living in a boarding house wasn’t bad at all for me I know not many would agree with me on this one. Imagine I went from “not being able to do house chores because of school work” in grade 9 to having to get up and cook for myself or else I won’t eat in grade 10.
I really think whoever said mom jeans were “unfashionable” and “unflattering” needs to take their words back because they truly make me feel like the only girl in the room. I know we women of colour struggle to find perfectly fitting denim jeans so imagine my excitement when I came across these, they make my waist feel smaller and give sort of a permanent booty tooch for as long as they are on lol.
So, this young lady (Me) recently started officially working (officially because I’ve always worked but nothing office related) and as easy as its been, dressing up for work has definitely required abit more attention than dressing up for Varsity, but you can’t go wrong with a white shirt, right? Oh how I miss the crop tops and slops.
So excited to have my friend who made me shed a tear with this article (she doesn’t know that because i had to act cool infront of her) be the first of many guest bloggers that i hope to have to share with me and everyone else their stories and emotions of all sorts. Enjoy! NxM.
Wow, look at me, doing a whole post about my birthday, who would’ve thought! Lol. Well, reason why I am saying that is because this is my second birthday in ten years! I haven’t had any joy for any of my birthdays for the past ten years and the funny thing is I actually LOVE birthdays they are a celebration of life I make a big deal about everyone else’s birthday except for mine (well used to).
