beginnings…

“And all of a sudden you know… It’s time to start something new and trust in the magic of beginnings…”

This year I am going in with a completely different mind set. I have decided that this is the year of “TIFFANY”. I want to think of me first, do things I want to do, go places, do adventures, I mean just live for me a little.

Some of you might think that it is selfish but if you really knew me, you would know that I never do things for me. I may want things to be done for me but I will always put others before me or make them happy and then think of myself.

This year, don’t get me wrong, I won’t forget about my loved ones but I am going to focus more on me and my NEEDS not wants well maybe some one of them LOL

As Beyoncé says ” I got me, myself and I.”

Let’s do this girl…

The “ex” factor

Ladies, ladies, ladies…

So I asked the question a few days ago as to “why does the new girlfriend not like the ex?” And it got me thinking we all have gone through that stage where we just can’t stand her, yet all the guy we with is trying to do, is move on with us and leave her alone because to be honest if he truly wanted to be there her he would leave your sorry ass…


So I lay in bed and wonder what makes us females feel this way?

  • Is it that we feel treathend?
  • Is she causing trouble?
  • Do we think that she’s still in the picture?
  • Are we insecure?
  • Do they still speak?
  • Are they call you their name?
  • Have they left in good terms?
  • Was it a good relationship?
  • Are you jealous of what they had?
  • Maybe the ex ain’t really the ex?

So is it something to really do with the ex or do we need to be working internally?

Like really man like I said before we are all guilty of this including myself and to be honest only when we are truly over the person and allow them to move on will the ex or ex’s never matter cause honey boo thang our handsomely strong men are coming…

Just you wait and see 😉

So I was told the other day that I am vain/narcissistic if they had to just look at my Facebook and Instagram and not really know me or take the chance too…

“narcissistic”

adjective

having or showing an excessive interest in or admiration of oneself and one’s physical appearance.

And I understand where people are coming by calling me that but you cannot base a person on their Instagram or Facebook posts! It’s just pictures that are out there for the world to see take it how you would like too but to be honest, no-one truly takes the time to get to know that person and actually realize they are nothing like what you thought they could be.

People are so quick to judge and label you without knowing what you have been through or currently dealing with.
Sorry but my life is to busy to worry with what people have to think of me! I know who I am and okay with that…

Because it happened…

I read this quote not to long ago “You should never regret anything in life. If it’s good, it’s wonderful. If it’s bad, it’s an experience.”

Like how true is that? We always seem to think it isn’t! We have this screwed up mindset that if it doesn’t play out the way we want it to, it was the biggest mess up! However when we look back, it could possibly be the best experience or lesson we needed at the time.

Only you can change your life, no one can do it for you! You are the one that can make things great (or not!) It is dependent on your mood if you really think about it!

Walk away knowing that life throws you with the most unexpected things, you gotta choose to live in it or get over it…

Scars to your beautiful x

So the first time I had heard this amazing song I honestly just sat and CRIED so much because every line in the song is so true for so many women in the world and we totally need to just go crazy and believe in ourselves…

This is the beginning of the song and it just hits you.

She just wants to be beautiful

She goes unnoticed, she knows no limits

She craves attention, she praises an image

She prays to be sculpted by the sculptor

Oh, she don’t see the light that’s shining

Deeper than the eyes can find it

Maybe we have made her blind

So she tries to cover up her pain and cut her woes away

‘Cause cover girls don’t cry after their face is made

Oh, you’re beautiful, oh, you’re beautiful
And there’s a hope that’s waiting for you in the dark

You should know you’re beautiful just the way you are

And you don’t have to change a thing, the world could change its heart

No scars to your beautiful, we’re stars and we’re beautiful

Oh-oh, oh-oh

And you don’t have to change a thing, the world could change its heart

No scars to your beautiful, we’re stars and we’re beautiful

When I decided to do this post, I honestly just kept overthinking, what are people gonna say, I have way to little clothes on, my body image shouldn’t be in pictures like this, why would I even think of doing this! And I realized it wasn’t actually people, it was me!! Me, myself and I are the worst crit to self image! I put myself down on a daily bases and then social media just adds to it! Looking for attention or should I say confirmation to be “beautiful” but when someone compliments me, I never truly believing the person or take it in!

I told the Photographer, listen I know this is something you will probably be shocked to here me say but this is why I wanna do for this shoot!

We did a few images and I stood there in disbelief, looking at myself and actually thinking “wow Tiff you really are beautiful and your curves look great!” Still trying to look for the flaws of course!

And I wanted to write this post to make women understand that we as females need to be our biggest supporters! We need to be the ones telling ourselves we beautiful, giving off confidence, shining even when we feel dull, making a statement wherever we go, putting ourselves out there as if we are a Model because we can be!! We are all beautiful in our own way…

So with that being said make this song your anthem!!

Je suis amiée

So I decided to get another tattoo but never really want to put anything on my body that is just for fun, however needs to have a great amount of meaning to me as it will be there for life!!

Let’s get a little bit deep just for a moment. My reason for the tattoo I had gotten on my Thigh is due to the fact that I don’t feel I am worthly of LOVE most times of my life, I have been in long term relationships/friendships and after a few years it ends and I just feel like I won’t ever have that REAL LOVE. Although I feel like I actually people LOVE fully. At times I know I don’t I will admit but yeah we all know when he/she just isn’t the one. My tattoo is in FRENCH – JE SUIS AIMÉE which means I AM LOVED. I choose french as I do feel it can be so romantic and it is called the language of LOVE heeeyyyyyyy lol.

Since I have had the tattoo I can honestly say looking st it daily makes me constantly feel that someone out there LOVES me for me, whether I know the person of not. I know someone does or at least I hope.

 

Thank you to the amazing team at Sleight of hand for the crazy experience and laughter throughout my sit down, I love my tattoo so much ❤ I will see you again soon 🙂

P.S if you can see I got a small tattoo on my wrist.  I had gotten this with the beautiful lady in my picture above which symbolizes our relationship together which has not ended and if yet to unfold, We got matching tattoos 🙂 love her to bits

iQ cruises cos we skit yachts

Where do I begin ❤ when you realize that you actually have not experienced Cape Town and you live here all your life.  So I decided to go on a sunset cruise with 5 of my friends to live that Lavish life even if its just for one night.  We made a pack to do more tourist adventures in Cape Town –  a tourist in your own town 🙂

  

It started at 6:45pm when we had to board the yacht and get the run down of our journey ahead as well as the safety tips. Of course we had to be there about 25 minutes earlier to pay for our booking and get our tickets. We were then advised that there are rails on each side of the yacht – please use when walking, there are sitting all around the yacht as well as inside, you can sit on the mats however you will get splashed from time to time, there will be refreshments on sale and blankets if it gets to windy.

At 7pm we left on our journey;  got some refreshments and we decided to sit outside to see the amazing view.  Well, not even 5 minutes into the yacht ride we got splashed with water like no tomorrow. So we decided until the water settles we would go inside before we were drenched in sea water. When we got inside we chilled and got dry while waiting for the water to calm down enough to go back out.

After the water calmed down, I was way to eager to get out and sit on the mat as the other guests on the yacht were not that interested.  Although I get really bad motion sickness which means I get car sick and sea sick really quickly but this trip was not that bad at all.  I was running up and down, all over the boat jumping and being weird as if the motion sickness did not exist whatsoever I am so glad no-one got a video of me throwing up!!

We then enjoyed the trip to Sea Point after turning around.  We saw an amazing sunset and as you know Cape Town always goes the extra mile with its beautiful sunsets. We took loads of pics of course but my phone decided to die (face palm) Likely my friends stepped in and we got some amazing shots of the yacht trip.

Once the yacht had turned and the sun started to set, it became a little chilly.  I didn’t feel it that much but I would advise you to take a jacket along so that you don’t get sick or get too chilly however if you do forget there are blankets available.

It is definitely something to do as a girls night out, date night or just a couple of friends out to have a good time! I think being nervous was just a given and I was even more anxious to throw up but hey I did it with out feeling nauseous what so ever, like my friend has claimed this years motto to be “don’t miss your turn” that’s exactly what I think we need to do!! Don’t say no if you haven’t tried something or you to scared to do it, do it you may find that you love every second of it and then you live with no regrets!!

This cruise was so worth it and I will definitely be back again.

Thank you iQ Cruise for the experience of a lifetime 🙂
