I am FLAWSOME!

It has taken me a while to get to like or understand my body and accept myself. It is still a working progress but this is me and how I was made. We constantly see the perfect image society wants us to be but for people like me it’s not how I was created. It was not in God’s plan for me to have big thighs like most people think all Africans have. I didn’t inherit a big butt and yes squats are there to assist but it’s just not how I was made. Society needs to be honest with us or we won’t be hon

Victoria Big Camp 2017: My experience

All my life I can’t really remember a year when my family and I have ever celebrated the commercial version of Easter. As I was raised a Seventh-day Adventist, it was never something we acknowledged in our household. Instead, we celebrate the Biblical reason for our long weekend: Jesus’s death and resurrection, the greatest act of sacrificial love to be witnessed. It’s for this reason that every Easter, rather than surrounding myself with eggs and rabbits, I, along with more than 3000 Adventist

Kanye West’s  ‘Life of Pablo’ pop-up shops opened in Melbourne and Sydney last year durin

The Magic Remains In ‘Beauty And The Beast’

Beauty and the Beast at its core is a breathtaking, magical and enticing fairy-tale and Bill Condon’s 2017 live action adaption has stayed true to that. The 2017 new release features our beloved and quaint protaganist Belle, the ferocious yet charming Beast/Prince, our superficial egotistical hero Gaston and his trusty stead LeFou. And we can not forget about the charming castle residents that present the humour and heart of the movie. Lumière, Cogsworth, Mrs. Potts, Chip, Madame Garderobe, Mae
