I walk this life with every step as a new beginning or an enhancement of who I was yesterday. Although their are thousands who’ve left their footprints before me, I see them, I’ve learned from them but my footprints are not the same as there’s. Our journey through life is one that can only be expeienced wholly through the doors we wish to open, the people we come into contact with and the treasures that are left only for us to find. It is a beautiful journey if we see the beauty. It can be a difficult journey if we see ourselves as…

I’ve grown to love the communications industry so much, that I took up a degree in communication science and loved it profusely. It granted me the opportunity to understand myself and the world around us, and how our interactions are built from a vast amount of our own life experiences.The knowledge and experience I gained over the years of working in various business sectors; small business enterprises, community organisations, corporate and entrepreneurial, has given me a substantial amount of insight in the do’s and dont’s of communication . e.tv department teambuilding – encouraging better communication between colleagues After landing in…

1 Everything that happens to you is a reflection of what you believe about yourself. We cannot outperform our level of self-esteem. We cannot draw to ourselves more than we think we are worth.

It is when you give of yourself that you truly give. KHALIL GIBRAN 4 He who is not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing in life.

I remember the day clearly. My 3year old daughter jumping on top of my back, while I was studying for an upcoming exam.  My husband decides to take her for a walk to my sister in laws house, not too far from where we lived.   The phone call that followed 20mins later, had my heart pumping louder than ever ….   Sound of the cell phone rings – My phone is on its last two bars –  My husband out of breath able to let out only a few words   – come now – dog – attack -…

Yes, I handled a rifle, wore the whole khaki outfit and crawled through mud….You may be thinking Why In The World would anyone sign up to join the army.  At the age of 16 I was quite the adrenaline seeker, so hiking, abseiling, netball, high jump, sprints and cycling activities was all good with me. High School was a reflection of who I became, As President of the Interact club, Director of the Drama Club, Vice President of TADA, Fundraiser of the Muslim Society, on the debate team, organiser of school events, it is no wonder my life today is as…

I was born and raised in the beautiful picturesque city of Cape Town, South Africa. My faith has grounded me, every step of the way, and defines the richness of my life’s journey. Let me take you on a summarised version of that journey.  Like a nomad we never lived in one place long enough to call home, so life was pretty much an adventure. My parents always looked for better living conditions, so each time we moved, would be better than the area or house before. Of the areas I’ve stayed, these are the places I remember: Grassy Park…

Style it, Shape it, Twist it, Fold it – Whatever you do with your headwrap, OWN it, LOVE it and KEEP LOOKING FABULOUS. Headwrap – Turban – Dhuku – Cele – Scarf – whatever you call it  – I can style it. I’ve played with scarf styling for almost 22 years now.  What initially started as a hobby, turned out into a business where I am able to pass on my skills and train those who are interested in styling like a pro …and looking fabulous. I get fixated on a subject so badly that I want to learn as…

I’ve always enjoyed dressing up from a young age.  Can’t say that I always had the fashion part right until I reached my 20’s .   For today’s Fashion Post I decided on a work look in Classic Monochrome. In the workplace I tend to be extremely focused on getting the job done right while developing those in my team.  I’ve always held a high regard for creating winners and nurturing future leaders. My colleagues can attest to this. I firmly believe in dressing for success as presentation is key and reflects what you think of yourself. About this look:…

How are you feeling today?  My emotions tell me so much about myself and  how I view and interact with people around me.  Emotions control my performance, physical health, mental health and relationship with others. Understanding  how I fit in the world and what my role in it is, I’ve been able to learn how to deal with people and things around me much better.  It’s true, that most things come with experience, but you can also learn from others who’ve been through the mill and developed tools and mechanisms to cope with the daily grind, and more so, ourselves. …

Looking for a book to read? If you’re interested in a spiritual read, my all time favourite book is the “Cosmology of the self” by Shaykh Fadhlalla Haeri . I can read this book again and again, as it really helps to understand ourselves and others in reaching our best human state. Its an easy-to-read, enlightening book, which breaks down the different levels of our human nature – a map of the human self. The book describes how and why we are stuck at different levels or stages of our self and how we can enhance the state of our…

Eating habits which allow you to look good and feel great, is not such a difficult task.  On my wellness journey; I’ve had 2 personal trainers, 2 wellness coaches, attended the gym frequently, and then not so frequently. I also very much enjoy skipping and boxing. While looking for the perfect health routine, I came across a solution that suited my lifestyle. Having lost 16kgs in 3months, I was in total awe of how easy it was. I immediately signed up to become a Wellness Coach which enabled me to reach out to as many people as I could – …
