struggle is real…

You ever have a feeling that you stuck in something you feel you cannot get out of yet you know you shouldn’t be in it???

It could be a friendship, work place, hotel room or even a family gathering.

I have come to learn that you are the only person that can change that exact situation, no-one else can do it for you. You can be encouraged to move on and turn away, yet you hold the power to actually follow through with the advise given.

Ask yourself these questions :

  • Look at what is bad or not right about the situation
  • Find out what is keeping you there and why?
  • Would it be worth it in the long run?
  • What have people been saying to you, should I listen or just push it a side
  • Should I stay or should I go?
  • In which way will I benefit
  • Can I solve it or will it just get worse if I try?
  • Am I truly happy?

If most of the questions are answered in a negative way GET OUT, as you will be hurting yourself more than anything. To be honest we all deserve to be happy and never have to find ourselves in a situation where we are not ourselves or find that we are just trying to survive or get through the day.

Save yourself from the drama, you deserve better!!!!

Getting to know Jared Carter an up coming Rapper that is blessed with an amazing voice and flow that you can listen to all day. I had an interview session with him and his manager, Neil Lasker a few weeks ago and felt like I wanted you guys to get to know him before you getting to know his music/career.

20160725_115943

Where are you from: Originally from Ottery, currently in Portlands Mitchell’s Plain.

How old are you: I am 25 years old, born 19 March 1991

What is the first thing you do when you wake up in the morning: Besides going to the bathroom look at my phone to see what is going on in the world.

What is your favourite colour: Black and sometimes Red.

What makes you smile: Seeing people progress in life.

What is your favourite movie: The Avengers has to be my favourite movie, I am a high marvel fan but I’m also a fan of Batman.

Have you ever cried during a movie: I  have cried for two movies, Titanic and Before we go.

If you could have a super power, what would it be? I would love to move things with my mind, so basically Telekinesis.

20160725_121920

Why dreads: I grew my dreads due to just liking the fact of having it but then I learnt patience. Yet I still have very little patience, at least we have a made a little progress.

What about yourself do you find the most pride: I have a lot of pride in my rap, If I hear someone better than me I’d want to be better than what I am at that moment. So I am always trying to improve my style, flow and lyrics.

What do you notice first when you meet someone: Strangely, the first thing I notice is hair. Why, I don’t know but it’s the first thing I look at.

What is the craziest thing you have ever done in our life: I once burnt the neighbour’s yard when I was living in Ottery. I then burnt out a car. BUT the craziest thing I have ever done was become a rap artist.

What is your biggest fear: I have a huge fear of heights, snakes and small places.

What is more logical to follow, you head or your heart: They say follow your heart, but sometimes that can lead you astray. I believe we should follow our brain but not to over think things. Just follow your gut, which is the feelings you cannot explain but we know we can trust it.

Describe yourself in 6 words? Real, Crazy, Kind, Optimistic, Trustworthy and Loyal.

coffee dreams

DSC_7044

I just wanted to share with you just how much I truly love coffee and my dreams that are yet to take place on coffee dates.

DSC_7048 DSC_7050

You know when you wake up and you crave something so badly? Now for me that craving would be coffee. I think I am a coffee addict, oh my word! The best situation for me would be, wearing an over sized shirt to chill outside and admire a beautiful view while sipping on a good cup of coffee just before work. My dream is to have a view just like this one. Be able to walk out of my house and enjoy a cup of coffee and enjoy the beauty that the day brings 🙂 (Notice, as long as coffee is in the picture, Im pretty much having a good day?). I am not much of a reader, but this view along with a “cup of joe” would definitely put me in a creative mood and inspire me to blog more.

Dreams are only dreams until you put the work in and make them a reality.

I think I have some obsessing with High waisted jeans and I love how it pulls everything together in this look. This jeans just has the right amount of rips and the colour stands out. I paired it with a simple grey crop top and a black kimono I bought at Cotton on. I just love it when you have nothing to wear but yet something to simple looks so good. I added a black wedge to dress up the look, still keeping it simple with a kick. Simple Gold jewellery to spice it up and look more elegant. I think I got right.

Never be scared if can rock a high-waisted short or jeans just do it…

Keep it simple yet elegant and you will have got a great look ❤

There are so many fun places to take pictures in town and this day we kinda just went crazy. I would just sit or stand in the middle of nowhere and it just worked out. I really do miss modelling and if I had the opportunity to do it again I would do it in a heartbeat ❤

Every moment can be captured, don’t ever forget that. Like the saying  “a picture can say thousand words”. It really can hold so much to it so with that being said, capture every moment you can.

cropped lace

I know that I am not the skinniest girl on the planet but if I am not gonna think “God made me beautiful” then no-one else will, so I became just a touch brave and rocked a high-waisted jeans and crop top.

I have been looking for a High-waisted jeans for about a year now but not just any jeans. The perfect one. A jeans with no extra piece stuck onto the jeans or to many buttons, I can be fussy with clothes but no-one buys something they don’t like just because. When I walked into Mr price I wanted to buy all that was on the hanger but there was only one in my size #can’tdeal but I made sure no-one else was going to get that jeans that day. It has become my favourite jeans yet. I was very daring and tried it one with a crop top that I would never wear out but put on my brave face and said “tiff you are not naked at all, yes there is some skin showing but if this doesn’t workout then you don’t have to wear it again.” To be honest I felt like I needed to just come out of my shell and take a leap. It is different if I was wearing a short skirt with my tummy wide open, I will never be able to do that lol. There are some really cute crop tops that show no skin if you rock it with something high-waisted, so lets get brave together. My mom had bought this lace jacket and I have been trying to steal it from her cupboard and kinda never return it but I haven’t gotten it right. I asked if I could wear it and immediately she said ” you better return it.” I paired with this look to have a different texture to the look and it was pretty hot. I hate sweating and this was just perfect for the weather 🙂 I really can’t wait to wear it again, summer you may come now. My heels are the most comfy and can make any look more glam. I have always wanted some to look good but not be uncomfortable at the same time and there are so much wedges in stores that you can find exactly why you want and rock it “comfy” he he. I got these on sale at Cotton on and just knew I was going to love them. I have been looking for a suede black heel for a while and when these were R100, I jumped to the till. I’m sure you guys all know that feeling #blushing

Shop till you drop with the great sales, I will see you all there.
