Self Confidence 

It’s been a short while ☺ but I’m back!! 

Self confidence is something that develops over time and it may appear quicker in some than others. But don’t worry we’ll all reach a stage in our life when we feel completely confident in ourselves and we just accept (not settle) our bodies, personality, life etc… 

Everyone experiences days where we second guess ourselves and feel as though we are not able to complete a task but it’s the struggles in life that lead us to the fantastic person we become. Everyone’s path is different so never compare yourself ♥ 

Here are some few tips to instantly help you feel more confident:

1. Focus on yourself 

2. Don’t worry about embarrassment or failure 

3. Step out of your comfort zone (no matter how scared you are)

4. Always forgive yourself, don’t put yourself down about bad/negative mistakes forgive yourself and move on 

5. Believe that you are the best

Lastly follow your dreams and never give up x

Chocolate 🍫 

Hello again, hope you are all well 😊

Firstly, cocoa is not the same as cacao, cacao is the bean which comes from the Theobrona tree.

When we think of chocolate we think of cocoa which comes from cacao beans after they’ve been processed or roasted changing the quality and more importantly nutrient content, diminishing some health benefits. 

Flavanols (contain health benefits) are found in chocolate and usually removed by manufactures because of the strong bitter taste, therefore processed sugars and fillers are added to ‘improve’ the taste. 

Cacao is grown in many warmer climate countries around the world including Africa, when choosing your chocolate once in a while opt for fair-trade or organic bars and support the farmers.

Holy Shift! 

So today I have a quote from the book ‘Holy Shift’ it’s one of those meditation books that have a quote for you to read every day. I haven’t read it in a while but I looked through the other day and saw this quote:

When your peace is threatened or disturbed in any way, say to yourself:

I do not know what anything, including this, means. And so I do not know how to respond to it.  And I will not use my own past learning as the light to guide me now.

By this refusal to attempt to teach yourself what you do not know,  mother Guide Whom God has given you will speak to you.

He will take His rightful place in your awareness the instant you abandon it, and offer it to Him. 

I really love the words used in this paragraph and also the meaning is quite beautiful as a way to live my life ♥ ♥

Crying is GOOD!? 😢 

Hey everyone, this has to be one of the most interesting things I have read recently even though I kind of knew already, it was still very useful to understand why and how. 

A professor of pharmaceuticals in the 1970s named Dr. William Frey discovered that the main function of emotional tears (when you feel sad) 😔 is to help the body to recover from a stressful situation by releasing lots of hormones and other proteins. Dr. William found out that tears form to rid the body of excess hormones (stress hormones) this is why after we cry, we usually feel much better like a weight has been lifted. Tears = less stress 

If you are interested be sure to research and find out more…

Thoughts Become Things 

This is literally the best motto, mantra or saying you can live by. I’ve been recently trying to improve myself overall and practice being the best version possible and these words ‘thoughts become things’are really helping 😊 it is actually scientifically proven that having a positive attitude and mindset can improve your wellbeing and life because you are surrounding your mind with good thoughts and not allowing negativity to get to you.

Confidence for 2017

Hi ✋ so this year is almost over and can you believe how quickly 2016 has gone by? A lot has happened this year and I am so excited for 2017 because I know it will be a great year for me to succeed and achieve many things. 

The main thing to remember is to be grateful for everything that you’ve been blessed with and look forward to what the future holds.

Here are some tips to take into the new year:

  • Never give up on your hopes and dreams, even if you are not where you wish to be in your spare time do creative activities that will nourish your soul.
  • Keep the focus away from yourself, focus on other people more and actually make eye contact when listening to someone is talking soon your fears of communication will disappear.
  • Be reliant on yourself, have some time alone and get to know your true self by letting go of who you think you should be. 
  • Don’t be afraid, just remember that you can achieve anything you put your mind too. Failure and embarrassment always mean you are making progress and overcoming fears therefore one step closer to your goals. 
  • Step out of your comfort zone, try new activities and speak to different people.
  • Always forgive yourself, don’t let things if the past get you down because no one is perfect and you can learn from your mistakes.
  • Lastly believe in yourself and be original.

Happy New Year Everyone and thank you for reading my blog posts #ablovesfood

Be Yourself

I always feel the need to wear make up when I’m going out especially to work and university but some days I just feel like I should be make up free, not to copy Alicia Keys or anything but just to give my skin a break and let it breathe. I have been a fan of makeup ever since I was in secondary school wearing pink and black eyeshadow :/ sometimes separately and sometimes together. I can actually remember this girl in my class saying it looked really nice and I felt so cool. I also remember doing my liquid liner so so neat and I never had to touch my eyebrows. Now, though I still adore makeup I always still prefer the more natural look, who knows maybe one day I’ll be into contouring, high light and the rest. I’m all about the concealer, dark brows, mascara and liquid liner 😉

​I think I wear makeup to cover up specific areas like the dark circles around my eyes but also to enhance my other features like the shape of my eyes and eyebrows. Wearing makeup is great in my opinion but it definitely shouldn’t be a mask and you should always make sure that you are just as confident without it.

Lets not forget that we are all beautiful ❤
