Doing the blogging challenge correctly should have instilled a new habit of writing everyday. It takes 21 days to create a new habit but I am cheating (technically.) I draft them before hand and publish them on their respective days. The aim is still being...

Who determines the definition of toxic in relationships? Different people need different things. What’s good for me might not work for the gander. Humans are getting very creative in their self-destructive tendencies. We are broken and we need help. The idea of what love is...

I am all for living with your partner before the two of you decide to get married but are strongly considering it. You know how before you complete your degree they send you to a year of on-the-job learning? Well, cohabiting is the same just...

Dating while parenting is difficult, especially for women. In most instances, mothers are the ones that have custody of the children while the father of the child is restricted to weekly visitations. Giving him more time and opportunity to have a vibrant dating life. Women...

I am a child born out of a matrimonial home. I didn’t suffer at the hands of a step parent. I had an amazing step-dad, he is the only dad I ever knew. My siblings and I get along fine but it was far from...

I should have included myself in this list cause I take bomb pictures but y’all would accuse me of rigging. When I started taking an interest in personal branding, creating an online image was of interest to me. I have been dying to have my...

Hell yeah! Bae can police whatever I wear. I wouldn’t put on anything that he doesn’t approve of. I’d like it when he throws the long arm of the law at me. What’s life without a penal code?   We are all into different things. To each...

The biggest threat to a black woman in the office is another black woman. Excuse the tone of finality in my statement and in my defence I haven’t had women of other races in my office. If you have a vacancy in your rainbow office,...

After having an ectopic pregnancy at 19, it has affected the way that I think about infertility. You see, going through something like that at a young age can ignite fears within you that you didn’t realise would affect you for the rest of your...

Africa is a beautiful continent with so many vibrant cultures. I hope someday I’ll be able to see most of these places and experience these diverse traditions.   Poverty Free I get tired of seeing pictures of the starving children in Africa. This isn’t true for all children....

I don’t even know what my career path is. It just feels like a maze. A lot of wrong turns and dead ends and starting over. I have worn many hats in my dynamic career. No logical progression. But I believe that every hat I...

Don’t do it!   I didn’t mean to come across so conclusive but yeah don’t have sex on the first date. My religious beliefs aside, sex is a complicated ritual. It is too intricate to be done with just anyone. I am a firm believer in soul...

The staple meal in the Zulugirl household is mealie meal porridge.   There isn’t anyone in my house that can cook very well but everyone can make porridge perfectly. Porridge is our staple food because it is easy to make, quick and you can serve it in...

I am a hypochondriac that has an erratic fitness journey. This is ironic because you’d think I’d love to exercise to ward off most chronic diseases but nope! Here are a few excuses, sorry reasons, why I can’t commit to my fitness journey.   I don’t go...

MaKupsy aka Fitness Bae texted me about possibly having a 30 day blogging challenge and I was sold in less than 5 minutes. Anything that has to do with Zimbabwean bloggers I jump to instantly. She created a WhatsApp group, we sent out invitations to...

This is a very sensitive subject for me because people close to me have taken trips to the loony bin and I do not want to offend them in any way. Mental health is a serious issue and it needs to be treated accordingly. When...

I didn’t care too much for local brands until I got into advertising. One or more of our clients was into FMCG and I had to know the brand plus the competitors. There are three brands that stand out for me as a girl and...

“Why don’t you just start your own thing?”   Yes, I am 28 and unmarried but this is the FAQ of my life. How blessed am I?   I went to spend the weekend at my aunt’s house and we spoke about how I am leaving my current job...

This is a difficult topic for me because I am really not into clothes. If being naked was legal, I’d opt for that honestly. But because the hwindis aren’t having it, I have to put on clothes. I’d really like to dress better and to...

The one thing that must be done in my city is for the industries to be developed into their former glory. This is a touchy, sensitive topic because everybody has their two cents and we will always end up at tribalism but this needs to...
