Love & Life

Since no one was willing to hire me I decided to just go out there and create my own employment (the Government must be so proud) and become a publicist. I had dabbled a little in the Zimbabwean entertainment industry and I saw a void...

Standing in the queue at a fast food outlet, I felt the worst pain ever in my abdomen. The room started spinning, sweat ran from all my pores and with that, it all went dark. I came to, with the fast food staff gathered around...

She didn't understand it. She wrestled with it. She lay awake many nights and read the ceiling grappling with it. She didn't know why, but I do. You weren't enough, not then, not now. And you knew this. You saw my greatness coming before I did and that...

I'm gonna keep writing about how I got stolen from until I stop hurting about it. The lyrics that keep running through my mind are from Coldplay's Fix you, "When you lose something you can't replace." I always thought there was nothing more valuable than monetary...

My bags got stolen from a well known supermarket (name withheld til a logical conclusion is reached.) The matter could not be reported at the closest police station because its always closed. Its a common case of the will they, wont they? Sunday I decide to...

Turns out we live in a world where weaves are a life goal. I don't know if its the country bumpkin in me or the poverty spirit but I just have not been attracted to that type of lifestyle. I am genuinely happiest when my...

The night before I left for Harare, my sisters and I brought the mattresses together and decided to stay up all night. In all the commotion, an MP3 player got misplaced. In the quest to find it, accusations were being flung all over and the...

I turn 26 this year and the woman I am now is nothing compared to the girl I was ten years ago. There is so much over the past decade that I would really rather forget. The struggle out there is real in a Lily...

Dr Mike Murdoch says, “To see the true colors of people around you, tell them your vision and watch their response.” Others will rise up and help you and the rest will try and talk you out of it. I’ve always believed that everything you...

I always knew that all those make over shows would have adverse effects on the female psyche. The developments in make-up artistry have demonstrated that things are never what they seem. I’ve never liked surprises and turns out the gents agree with me on this...

My people have a problem. Somebody goes out and tries something new and my people are up in arms against one of their own. QTM was a great youth initiative by my peers. They had an idea, waited for money, the money didn’t come through...

I have nothing against girls that choose to bleach their skin, your body, your business. And I assume that resorting to bleaching took a lot of thinking and logical reasoning. Society will just judge the women and men that are bleaching without looking for the...

I have heard a lot of entrepreneurs chanting the slogan, “Winners never quit, and quitters never win!” And all this is fair and fine…in sport but what about in real life? What if I turn 30 and I am still pursuing a dead-end dream that...

Season’s greetings to all my readers. This is the season for giving. Personally, I can’t feel the Christmas spirit but hey, the calendar says it is. This is usually the time when people feel the most generous to donate to charity. And although I applaud this,...

[caption id="attachment_202" align="alignleft" width="300"] Noma-Kay in happier times before the near death experience[/caption] I was there, in the death trap called a swimming pool. Playing around with my cousins. I knew full well that I couldn’t swim to save my life, even if there had been...

[caption id="attachment_190" align="alignleft" width="221"] Thabiso Phiri[/caption] I've been following the turbulent tale of Miss Zimbabwe 2014. First, we had Miss Thabiso Phiri, who abdicated the troubled throne for unknown reasons. The media claimed that nudes of the said beauty queen leaked but the way the internet...

As this highly coveted milestone draws near, I decided that maybe I should write down my vision so that the in-laws don't get it twisted. My wedding day will not be a day for me to stick it to the haters that said it would...

Every girl goes through this. I’m dead sure of it. When you’ve had an amazing hairstyle and you finally remove it and the morning after you wake up to your natural look. Of course some girls have more esteem than others. Those with less self...

A couple of weeks back, this woman says to me, "You're ugly." And being 25 and way past the awkward teens, you'd think I had a witty comeback and I shrugged it off - I didn't. I was so hurt. I was embarrassed about being...

WOMAN STRIPS NAKED IN PROTEST Here's the thing, men mostly give us attention when we are naked. The female body is a sign of a struggle. It's a gift and a curse. Truth or lie? The women that are getting the most attention right now in...
