Love & Life

To the Soldier, Father, Reserve Bank of Daddy and the Best Thing To Ever Happen to Me. When I got the call from the police at 4am about an accident, I didn’t even think for once that it could have been you. You had just picked...

I don’t even know what I was thinking when I titled this blog post because I have never once seen a nude ninja. Anyway, I think I was referring more to their skills than anything else. Nudes are like an unwanted child that everybody knows...

Love is in the air cause Valentine’s Day. I’ve always thought this is a very good time to raise awareness on issues around sexual and reproductive health. World Condom day is on the 13th of February, coincidence? I think not. Truth is, a lot of...

Way before I knew what Valentine’s Day was, way before I knew what love was and even before I could appreciate the sentiment behind romantic love, I knew one thing. My name was somehow connected to this apparently very special day! I became very familiar...

Where I come from, you can’t speak ill of the dead. No matter how scandalous the person was, at their funeral, you are expected to celebrate the good things about them and remember their sins no more. But Hollywood had found a new way of...

Sometimes you wake up and the world has just decided to turn against you for no reason. And it's so easy to slip into depression or sadness at varying levels. It's important to find the things that your body likes in order to address your...

My best friend of 11 years and counting Kennedy Fambarega has decided to pursue his passion in Photography (Click here to see his work). What this means is that we are now a trio with his camera because it goes everywhere with us. So he...

It’s your moment to shine. All eyes are on you. The thunderous claps from the cloud are deafening. Your heart is beating so fast. You walk down to receive your prize while holding back tears of joy. They stand up and continue to clap their...

In the book Outliers, author Malcolm Gladwell says that it takes roughly ten thousand hours of practice to achieve mastery in a field. I'd love to blog every single day like some of the other bloggers that I look up to but the truth is...

Sex is not the weapon of mass destruction that it has been made out to be. I think wives should pay special attention to this reality. Conjugal rights are so vital that even prisoners that have been deprived of other priviledges still get to fool...

Why be Solange Knowles when you can be Beyonce Knowles? I don't mean to incite sibling rivalry or whatever. All I'm saying is there is good and there is great. When you look at your squad, where do you rank on the hotness scale? Are you the...

How many competitions have you entered online? How many of those have you won? Before you call up Sekuru the Nyanga to rid yourself of your bad luck lemme explain why you aren't winning. And it's got nothing to do with your ancestors needing the wise waters. Like-farmers...

I don't like responsibility. Being the first of five kids and having to look out for all of them can make the idea of responsibility repulsive. My dislike for responsibility is the reason why I'm sterile. Well, not really, but I have no kids. My...

[gallery type="slideshow" ids="2499,2498,2497,2496,2494,2495"] Met her over a decade ago and we'd walk to and from school together almost everyday. Bunked sports to just chill nje. She's the one person that has raised me and watched me grow. There isn't a person in the world that knows me...

Earlier this year at the ZITF I bumped into my former employers. I hadn't noticed them and I was about to walk past when one of them says, "Thembi just because you are pregnant it doesn't mean you can be rude." I stopped dead in...

I sat there slap-jawed and starry eyed as Britney Spears thoroughly humiliated herself with a clumsy, sloppy, un-rehearsed performance...

Do you have a friend that you love but can’t trust to come through for you when you need them? They are exciting to be around during the good times and when the kill time comes they always have an excuse as to why they...

Thinking about a person all day every day is an exciting feeling. No matter what you are doing you can't seem to get them off your mind. They literally own your mental space. You can't turn it off. You wonder what they are doing or...

You couldn't put a price tag on the amount of happiness that flowed through me as I turned 27. It was a genuine feeling of gratitude for everything! In the words of Juanitta Bynum, "If it had not been for the Lord who was on...

Isn't dating such a time waster? Put in all the work and all of a sudden you break up and all you have is the pain and the memories. Curled up in the foetus position asking God to bring back lost lover. Has dating for love...
