A little history
When I first started this blog it was a private space for my personal self-expression, just like an online diary. It gave me the freedom to write about anything and everything, without any constraints. Then as I started to write about my hobbies and interests, I decided to make it public.
I'm sure you know that the best thing about having a lifestyle blog is the freedom to write about anything that takes your fancy. This has come in handy for someone like me, who is a creative at heart with a broad range of hobbies and interests, so you can expect to see some very random posts on here. To give you more insight, I will list out the main topics of interest you are most likely to discover on my blog.
What's the use of having a story and keeping it all to yourself? There must be someone out there who needs to hear it.
Sharing aspects of my personal life, past and present, I often go back down memory lane, and revisit the many events that have had a huge impact on my life. Some of which are very personal but in choosing to write about these experiences I have been able to work towards a place of healing and maybe find closure.
In sharing aspects of my Christian faith, I attempt to reveal the spiritual part of my life that can be often held in check. Not because of fear or shame, but to exercise caution and apply wisdom. This is only because I have learnt that it is better to let your actions speak louder than your words. There are too many well-meaning people who are quick to quote the scriptures and proclaim their faith from the roof tops, but their nature and actions are far from it. I do not say this in judgement because I have been there before and have learnt my lesson the hard way.
My walk with God is very simple, but even the most basic of ideals can become extremely complex when we lose sight of the truth. The truth being, the Word of God. It's as simple as that.
My Loc Care
It's been over five years since I've been loc'd. Sharing my passion for natural hair, especially when it comes to loc care and my personal hair journey, is one of my favourite topics. As I discover new products and tweak my hair regimen, I get to share my experience and feedback with you.
I get loc questions via email and messages on Facebook, so I always try my best to answer or point them in the right direction. I'm not a loc 'guru' but more than happy to share any tips that have helped me over the years.
My Natural (and other safe) Health and Beauty
Over the years I have used a lot of products for my loc and skin care. I love to use natural products but have also tried other products that have helped me achieve my health and beauty goals. Even though they are not all natural, after much research and trial and error, I have deemed them safe for my personal use. I get to recommend such products to you but only to be used at your own discretion.
Sharing my writing projects, photography, art and handmade jewellery is another favourite of mine. As previously mentioned above, I am very creative at heart and it is only natural that I share some of these with you.

I will be introducing a new schedule for the blog, so that you have a clear idea of what to expect in the coming months. So for this, I will be running a small poll to get a better feel for what you would like to see on this blog.
A short poll has been created on the bottom of this page. Please take the time to scroll down and answer the single question by selecting one or multiple options provided below. I want to hear from you. Your feedback is extremely important.
I am aiming to do more random but 'small personal giveaways' from me to you, just to show my appreciation to all of you who have been supportive, and taken the time to stop by my blog.
Apart from writing about the things that I love, I equally aim to create the right type of content that you are looking for, so please play an active role in providing your feedback.
Also as previously mentioned earlier in the year, if you have been a regular on my blog and enjoy reading the content then, now is the time to join in and really get involved. You can now join the mailing list by entering your details to get regular updates on the latest news. This is an exciting time, and I look forward to getting to know you all much more.
Thank you all for your support so far.
