#SkincareSaturday Working on a Routine that works!

It does not matter when you start a skincare regimen, sooner or later you will have to find some kind of routine based on all the products out there and also your skin needs.

As i have mentioned before, i have dry skin (and i'm learning how to deal with it daily. Read this to see how!). What works for me might be counter productive for someone with oily skin and vice versa. Also, what i need in the morning or day time, varies from my night time needs and i of course tend to have more time in the evenings and weekends for my skin, than in the mornings.

What helps me is a skincare routine. Having a routine helps simplify your life, and gets the best out of your products. Your skin will thank you. I kicked off my routine based on my thoughts above and here are some quick tips that might help you in creating your own routine.

DETERMINE your time and schedule.
When do you have more time? What is the number of minutes or hours you can dedicate to skin care daily, weekly, weekends and g…

#shopTosyn How to style blue

Blue goes well with... Well. Blue.
The key is to vary shades.When I planned this look,  I started with the top. I knew I wanted to wear this shirt and as you can see, it has blues and white on it. I immediately thought of my ripped jeans which are a lighter shade so I thought I'd 'monochrome it' by accessorising it with pale blue (so pale it looks white) flats and white jewellery plus this big blue 'ish' bag.

#MondayMotivation Three Ways NOT to respond to people in a crisis!

When i was in school, my friend locked her keys in her car. I walked by with another friend of mine (what we call a 'toaster'. lol). After five minutes with my friend, i knew i wasn't going to be able to date this guy. Why? He broke all the rules of what to do or say in a crisis.

So my friend had locked her keys in the car right, right? What does toaster say? "You locked your keys in the car?"
My friend, trying not to say 'duh' replies, "Yes"
"O"

Silence.
Then, "and you do not have the spare here?" (toaster again)
Even i wanted to hit him at this point. If she had the spare keys would she be on the road at school looking around helplessly and trying to resolve the situation?
I mean!

Look, people will always be in stressful situations and when that happens, please avoid saying or doing the following-

* STATING the obvious
When people are stressed or in trouble, they do not need you stating the obvious. Things like, "you a…

#ShortStorySunday Once a Year

Some people you are destined to keep meeting
If you believe in destiny
It could just be that its a small world and so you were bound to bump into them anyways!



But Shade believed in destiny.

The first time she met Tutu, she was fascinated.
He was tall
He had lovely hair
And he spoke well

That was always her weakness.

He was in university and he was in America; back home for something or the other. That was twenty years ago

She was at a friend's wedding. A little bored and ready to leave but saw a friend on her way out. The friend was at the same table with Tutu. Nothing mattered any longer; she just wanted to be around him, talking about nothing, something, everything.

And that's what they did.

This was in the days of no mobile phones nor 'social media' so they swapped landlines, and someone called the other, and after chatting back and forth for a bit, they set up a date.

And yet, inspite of both of their best intentions, they could never seem to get the date right.


Between them, t…
