Love & Life

During the unhealthiest phase of my life, I went through hell. Life is a rollercoaster, it goes up, it goes down and throws you all around. I used to think that I had bad luck and that I was cursed. The things that I went through...

Fear Won't Let Me Try Something New Have you ever been so afraid to fail that you'd rather not make an attempt in the first place? That's the kind of fear that I have when it comes to business ideas. I will keep meditating on why...

Would you marry a divorcee? If we were both coming from a previous then maybe I'd consider it but fresh as I'm is? It's not going to happen. There was a time when all the men that I liked seemed to get married. And I was bitter....

What do you find most attractive in a man? No, I wasn't going to say money but money is definitely number 2. I thought I knew exactly what I wanted in a man. I’d been writing that checklist ever since I started watching romantic comedies. That list...

What inspires a woman to hide a bulging baby bump? Quite recently I watched Busiswa and Cardi B in music videos trying very hard to hide their baby bumps and I was like its so awkward and hard to watch. Especially for Busiswa, it was such...

What’s your worst fear as a woman? If this is it, please relinquish your woman hood and go join another species. With the pay gap debate, FGM, #MenAreTrash, unsafe abortions, #MeToo and abuse all rife in this life game and all you are worried about is a...

By now we’ve all seen the video that went viral of Chisi lower 6th girls singing a song. Even as a non-Shona speaker I could tell that that wasn’t going to end well especially on video. Anyway, its happened now we discuss. Ever had a toddler...

Whether you know it or you don’t we’ve all been cheated on. But how we deal with it is what differentiates the jail birds from the love birds. Once you find out that you’re being cheated on, should it stress you and make your hair...

Yup! You read that right. Does it make me a bad person? In the eyes of a broke man yes it probably does. I’ve blogged about my love language being money before and I am ready to make it my first language. Have I dated...

Ever had somebody betray your trust? Where they came out and told a story that they had no right to tell? Imagine being homosexual and somebody dragging you out of the closet before you are ready. This is basically what happened to Babes Wodumo. We...

Have you ever been so in love that it defies all reason? That love that is irrational, wild, rebellious and vicious. Where your partner is perfection and can do not wrong. The love that has you curving other men ruthlessly and any compliment that isn’t...

That awkward moment when you finally get to speak to your crush and their one deal breaker is something you are guilty of. My crush likes girls with cute feet. So imagine how crushed I felt when my webbed-toed, size 8 shoes wearing self felt when...

So, when I went to go see #Acrimony I knew what to expect from Tyler Perry. I knew a black man was gonna be done dirty by an angry black female and against all odds the black man was going to come up victorious while...

Most of you know her as Misred from ZiFM Stereo. This post is long overdue but been struggling to find the right words. Yes, I couldn’t find the right words...

I don’t know of it’s the spirit of poverty operating in my life but I have never really known what I want for my birthday. It’s hard for people to get me gifts because how could you possibly know what I want when I myself...

Nobody has watched more Beyonce videos than I have. You’d be lying. I have watched the music videos, live performances, interviews, behind the scenes and movies repeatedly. There was a time I couldn’t take my eyes off of her. Now that I have a PHD...

Marrying a loser isn’t always about giving a deadbeat money to go and lobola you. I have never understood the idea behind this but to each his own. For the sake of this article, a loser doesn’t not mean a man without money. It means...

  I am loud and sometimes proud of it. When I get excited my volume goes up. And like Halle Berry I’m kinda deaf in one ear. I am lactose intolerant and allergic to peanut butter. Funny thing is I can’t take fresh milk but...

I once dated this guy who could drink like a fish. This was way outta my character because I had grown up afraid of men that drink. Not because anything bad happened but because I watched too many Tyler Perry movies. Grew up thinking men...

[caption id="attachment_2731" align="aligncenter" width="940"] Are women even allowed to hate children?[/caption] Getting into public transport is an experience on it’s own but the worst thing is getting into a kombi and sitting next to a woman with a child or even worse… two children. She can’t...

[caption id="attachment_2735" align="aligncenter" width="940"] What is a love language?[/caption] We were in the car, straight chilling like we usually do on the weekend. And my hommie says to me, “Please play me some romantic love jams.” DJ Thembi Terry then pulled out her tab and start...
