My New Affair

Hey everyone 😀 Hope you’re feeling glowy and extra saucy this festive season.

🍲 This my absolute favourite time of the year & I’m over the moon excited. With Christmas just right around the corner, I’m watching myself and what I put into my body more than ever because it’s so easy to munch on comfort food and festive goodies and treats especially since the whole family is here.

🍚Luckily though, I’ve recently become such a health conscious eater, cutting down on white bread, drinking more water, I barely eat junk food now, I’ve cut down on rice etc 🍱 speaking of rice, I’ve kinda sorta replaced it with couscous and in my books it’s GLORIOUS. Better than rice, macaroni and quinoa it’s healthier and lighter. It takes a little longer to prepare and needs more tender loving not just sprinkling some salt and pouring water. It’s all so worth it though.

🍲 It has so many perks too. For example, the potassium in couscous regulates blood pressure and your heartbeat. It helps control fluid balance and assists with muscle contractions.

Trust me it’s amazing honey 🔥try it 🍲.

Face Mask: Turmeric Perfection

Hey Dolls.

Season change does the absolute most to my skin to be honest. I hate it. My skin breaks out, I get dark circles and sometimes blackheads. I HATE IT *cringes*. And I know a lot of you ladies can relate, don’t be shy. And like every girl I search and search for a fix because I NEED TO GLOW, especially since its Spring in South Africa. So I need to have that spring body and FACE!!!

As you all know, I am a face mask addict! And as always I needed to find a face mask fix and I DID! You are going to L.O.V.E this one.

Like my usual face mask magic  DIYs, there’s honey. Personally I feel honey has ALL answers. It can fix just about anything. This time around we’re adding some spice, literally. I like to call this one, ‘Turmeric Perfection’. It’ll add that extra glow every woman wants and needs, helps with acne, eczema and dark circles. All you need is:

1 teaspoon of Turmeric

1 teaspoon of Raw Organic Honey

1 teaspoon of milk/plain yogurt

Put the Turmeric into a small bowl. Add the Raw Organic Honey (make absolute sure that its Raw Organic Honey) to the turmeric. You can add milk or plain yoghurt. Either or. Mix everything together. You can adjust the thickness of the paste by the amount of milk/yoghurt you put into it. Turmeric stains quite a lot so its advisable that your paste is thick enough not to drip off your face.

Before applying, remove all make up and rinse face with warm water and dry. Then apply!

This face mask is amazing because Turmeric is an anti-inflammatory and a great antioxidant, the honey is great for the skin and its also an anti-bacterial, and the milk exfoliates your skin.

See why its called a Turmeric Perfection!!!

I love you for reading.

Spring Must-Haves: Favourites

Hey dolls. 💋

SPRING IS HERE! & the heat is doing the absolute most, I can’t even. I must say though, I have more winter clothes than Spring/Summer combined. Annoying to be quite. So I’ve decided I NEED to grab a few Spring items, because beach & pool parties are my happy place.

Here are my Spring must-haves, from shoes to skirts to dresses. Some items I cannot live without this Spring.

1. PLEATED SKIRTS

image

I know it’s a little old school but dammit, they’re so comfortable. They’re free & flow well. You can dress them up or down, for a relaxed lunch with the girls by throwing in a crop top, a vest or a plain Springy tee with Perspex heels/sandals or sneakers. OR for a formal dinner with the in-laws or a business meeting, pairing it with a really cute flowy, chiffon blouse/shirt with a really cute heel (pump/peep-toe/gladiator) will be AMAZEBALLS.
2. SUMMER DRESS

imageimageimageimage
This one is a norm. It’s a classic. You can never go wrong with a summer dress AS LONG AS you let it be the statement piece in your outfit, not too many accessories (especially if it’s print) & a fresh new hair do ! It can be floral, white, beige, yellow etc. Avoid dark colours, they’re not totally impossible but they won’t give off a very springy/sunshine feeling.

3. LEOTARD/BODYSUIT

imageimageimage
I personally think I have too many of these, but who says I’m complaining?! I love them. They go well with shorts, jeans, dresses, skirts etc. They’re perfect. Like PLEATED SKIRTS, you can dress them up or down depending on the destination/location you’re going to. THIS ONE I strongly advice.
4. PERSPEX HEELS

imageimage
The IT girl of all shoes right now. Firstly they’re comfortable. Secondly they’re super chic & quirky. There’s no way you could fault them. They come as an over-the-knee boot, an ankle boot & just a normal heel. So versatile.

5. PUMPS!

I wont explain cause you can see for yourself how amazing they are! I’m absolutely in love with them!!
Soooo dolls, GET TO SHOPPING 💃🏻💃🏻🔥🔥

I love you hunnies. ❤️

Hey babies 💋

I’ve recently been going through the absolute most, family issue, work issues, creative issues, but the one thing that’s kept me going is balance. B A L A N C E. In every aspect. 🍒

This balance I’m talking about isn’t only about my food intake (what I put into my body) but also what comes out of my mouth, what I think of myself, how I think of myself, what I think of others, my stressors etc, because I, too, believe A LOT in manifestation. “What you put out to the world, is what you’ll get back” type of thing. Because of all this, I’m constantly working on reinventing myself. Im constantly encouraging myself. I’m constantly thinking of ways to make me happy, to make the people in my life happy, & that all takes balance. A health balance, mental balance, emotional balance, spiritual balance & social balance. 🌞

I’ve learnt to construct a life, a plan, lifestyle & routine for ME. That works for me. So I challenge you as well,to create a life for YOU. A comfortable, balanced life for you. You’ll thank YOU for it. You’ll be so proud of YOU and you’ll love YOU more. 🍒 For tips & advice on wellness programs, comment your questions or DM me on Instagram (@KingNiita). I’m always here you. Always.

Love you lots ❤️

Wellness Program Worth Every Moment

Hey dolls 💋

I’ve been such a junk food freak for the past 4 months and it’s definitely taking its toll on me & my body. I’m slowly but surely getting a flappy belly and gaining weight like I’m losing my marbles. And I’m not impressed by myself to say the least.

I truly believe in that saying “actions speak louder than words ” and I’m taking all the actions I possibly can. Eating healthy, keeping hydrated and moisturized, gyming, loving and smiling more etc. So I thought why not share my wellness program thus far that I’ve created for detoxing and keeping healthy:

* Quick Morning Workout
– Warm up
– 15 squats
– 5 push-ups
– 20 Jumping jacks
– 20 sit ups
– 15 squats
– 5 push-ups
– Stretch

* Cucumber water
– A third of a cucumber
– Half a lemon
– Mint leaves
– 1 liter of water

* Cut junk food from your diet

* Lower your carb intake

* Afternoon workout (if you really wanna work on your belly and butt, provided your doctor/wellness coach approves)
– 25 jumping jacks the
– 20 crunches
– 20 squats
– 20 leg lifts
– 10 bicycles crunches
– REPEAT TWICE ONLY

* Eat fruit & veggies!

* Pray/Meditate

* Laugh more

* Sing more

* Smile more

PS: consult your doctor/wellness coach, if necessary, prior to doing this wellness program & ALWAYS keep hydrated

Love you lots. ❤️

“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.Dr. Seuss

11:47, Monday

I had been in and out of sleep during my class and the lecturer had taken notice. It was easy for him to notice as there were only 23 people in our class. I really didn’t give a damn and my eyes were unapologetically fixed on the clock. Every hour felt like forever, but I didn’t have a choice, I had to wait it out. The feeling echoing throughout the entire room was that of grown up children trying to figure out whether they are here for a purpose greater than being accompanied by the agonising voice of Mr Venter going through the same work we covered last week because he believed we didn’t understand it the first time.

“You need to realize…

One Word: Yoncé

Hey dolls. Hope you’re growing & glowing.

So, confession; I stalk Beyoncé Knowles ALL THE TIME, and I’m not ashamed. Not at all. I mean, she’s AMAZING!

So best believe when again saw her sheer, Victorian-inspired white gown made by designer Inbal Dror, I fell off my chair in tears. And to think it’s actually a wedding dress but it looks perfect. Perfect for the Grammy’s. My favorite Yoncé gown to date.

She looks like she just stepped out of heaven. So clean, so graceful. She looked breath taking. I have no words to describe the beauty that is Mrs Beyoncé Giselle Knowles Carter.
