My First Marathon – Soweto Marathon 2019

I went for my first jog today since the Soweto Marathon. While I was running I could still remember every little detail. I don’t think I’ll ever forget this experience, I had prepared to have fun and enjoy the journey. But I won’t lie, it was not all fun and games.

3rd November 2019, the day was finally here. After months of preparation [and drama], the Soweto Marathon was here. But it actually started on the 1st November with a cru culture event called Soweto Bridging The Gap [BTG]. Every year …

Road To Soweto Marathon

It’s that time of the year again where all roads lead to the Soweto Marathon. Runners from all walks of life entered the race for different reasons; from wanting to obtain Comrades Marathon qualifiers, to those who have already qualified and use this process to train and those want to push their personal best. I’m in between getting a personal best and getting a qualifier.

So far, the road to Soweto Marathon preparation has been a grueling but fun process. Grueling because of how the weather has no …

30 Years, 30 Reflections

On the 30th, I woke up high and joyous. The memories from the previous day lingered on and I woke up to a gang of messages and missed calls. I woke up, did my regular prayer and meditation (in tears of joy). I MADE IT! I was 30, on the 30th. I wanted this day to be quiet and intentional, so I spent most of the day by myself setting intentions and goals for the year and the decade. I also spent the day counting my blessings. Before we get into the 30 Reflections; here’s how I spent my birthday.

My 30th Birthday Celebration

I turned 30 on the 30th of September #CrownYear. A week later, I’m still on a high from all the love I received. Especially on my birthday lunch. The plan was to go to Bali for my crown year but I saw it better fit to spend it with my loved ones; people who’ve held my hand through the first half of the year. People who’ve been there for through the good and tough times. And I don’t regret my decision because my birthday month (and birthday lunch) was magical. It was everything I imagined it to be.

The vibe, the people, the music, …

What A Time To Be Alive!

If August 2019 is anything to go by, what a time to be alive! This month has been a beautiful indication how representation matters and when it shows up, it’s celebrated because it brings confidence. This is a feel good post, I hope it melts your heart as much it did mine.

 Miss South Africa, Zozibini Tunzi

A lot of people had lost hope when it comes to beauty pageants, Miss South Africa included. For the longest time beauty pageants seemed to represent a certain perception of beauty and nothing beyond that. This year, the organizers of Miss SA finally heard us and had …

What I Learned From the #90DaysOfGratitude Challenge

I spent the last three months on a #90DaysOfGratitude challenge and WOW! it has been a roller coaster and a half. I had a strong nudge to take on this challenge for spiritual reasons and I knew it wouldn’t be easy but I wasn’t ready for how challenging it would be.

Day 1 – 30; Surrender

When the journey began in May, I took a huge leap of faith and resigned from my job, without a plan. The two month notice was the longest two months because my grandma and spiritual teacher practically begged me to heal from the issues leading to my …

Ocean Dune – Sibaya KZN

The original plan was to take another road trip to Durban with the same gang from this trip. But a crowd of eight turned into six, then four, then three and finally two. The costs of the trip went up but myself and a friend needed the break away from normal life so we were set on going no matter what.

The 14th of February finally came and I don’t think I can ever get used to the fine greenery right after Heidelberg. Everything changes; the air, the atmosphere, the …

Masego Live In SA

After the last minute disappointment from the Flying Fish  #FlavourOdyssey event last year, he finally made it to the South African shores. I got my ticket about 2 months before the event and it came to me as a surprise. I had forgotten about this event and made peace with seeing Masego later on in life. But I was also excited when I saw the invitation.

1 May 2019, we made our way to Sandton, Fourways for what seemed like a private event. I was so impressed that the event was a day event. The proposed time to start and end was 11am – …

I Saw Ed Sheeran – Live

I wasn’t planning to write about this one but that would be selfish of me right…

Firstly, seeing the most popular and cutest Ginger in the world was a pipe dream because the Johannesburg tickets sold out within hours of going on sale. I made peace with not seeing him but the big boss at work ran a competition; asked a few questions and then offered a booster entry if you recorded a video of yourself doing something with Ed Sheeran’s songs. I choose to sing and well, I won! The video is on my Insta stories here.

The 23rd …
