It’s been a hot minute since I’ve written a blog post. YAY.

I am one of those people who get overly excited for Christmas and everything that comes with it. My favourite part is spreading joy and love throughout the festive season. The Body Shop South Africa was kind enough to invite me to their end of year media event and I just have to say that this cause is something which is quite close to my heart.
One of the reasons I love the season of giving is because I myself did not have much to begin with. I grew up in a family where we did not have much, but we had each other and that taught me how to be grateful. My parents worked their fingers to the bone to provide for my brother and I. I’m very grateful for my family and I wish everyone could experience love like that.
The Play For Peace Campaign is an initiative The Body Shop came up with in order to support children in need. For every gift set you purchase from The Body Shop, you contribute to the Peace Play Project, which provides a safe space for children to play and heal. This programme teaches children how to deal with their trauma, cope with their losses and express themselves without violence.
The Body Shop has inspired me to give more this Christmas, which is why I will be embarking on a few charity campaigns this Christmas. To follow my journey, subscribe to my YouTube channel and look out for my Christmas videos coming up.
Please support this amazing campaign by purchasing any selected gift set from The Body Shop.
“Dream big, work hard, stay focused and surround yourself with good people.”

I love university. I love the fact that it’s nothing compared to high school and you’re surrounded by people who are aiming for the same goals as you, which inevitably is to graduate.
I want to write a separate post detailing my university experience and what university was like, but just for some background purposes, I thought I’d fill my readers in on some information. I attend the University of the Western Cape in South Africa, which is one of the top universities in the country. I am currently in my third year of university, studying a Bachelor of Art and majoring in English and Language and Communication Studies. I am an aspiring journalist with a passion for writing and reviewing products. My main goal for my final year is to complete my bachelor Cum Laude (with an average of 70% across all modules).
In this vlog I take you with me to campus and you get to meet some of the gems I call my friends. Then I have a busy day and end up going apartment shopping. The best part of this vlog (in my opinion) is definitely the convertible ride at the end!
My university experience was not all sunshine and roses and I never want my viewers or readers to feel that I’m trying to portray “the perfect life”. If you’ve been a follower of mine for a long time you would know that I have come a long way since my days of being bullied in high school, to coming out of a 4 year long toxic relationship.
This video blew up so quickly, if you would like to see more then please subscribe to my channel so I can create more content!
I’ve never filmed a vlog before but I thought it would be fun to go down to the local animal shelter and film my experience going. If you click the video below you can watch the vlog and I promise it will be worth it as I have an important message at the end about looking into adoption. So click the play button and please subscribe.
I urge anyone looking into adopting a pet as these animals just want a loving home and they are amazing animals. I had an amazing time with these animals and if I could take them all home with me I really would and I do explain at the end of the vlog why I can’t keep a pet at the moment, and how I am looking into the adoption process for when I get my own apartment.
Hope you enjoy xo
