Hello ladies and gents!

Oh my word! It’s been months and months since I came on here..not counting my candid rant like a month ago (how many of you caught that before I took it down I wonder?). To be honest I’ve had a really really difficult time coming into my own. Feels like everyone is halfway to the finish line and I’m still tying my shoes to get started. When I sit and think about it, it makes me crazy but you have to smile and keep pushing. It’s not easy having a twin let me tell you! My sister is gone with the wind fabulous! She’s married( practically), heavy with child, and has a successful blog and upcoming fashion line. I’m single, a little wild, and can’t seem to focus on anything for more than 10 minutes. It’s easy to look at us and compare and nothing irks me more! Ok, so I can’t buy dimples or have her butt…and God isn’t offering immaculate conception these days either…so what’s a girl to do?! Lol! This is me now…with all my random craziness! No more trying to fit in or tone myself down. Love me or leave me πŸ™‚ but I’d rather we love each other..cuz I’m niiiiice!

My blog is currently being revamped but in the meantime I’ll post anyways..before I lose focus again. I plan to have loads of new things including my fitness journey..that I’m about to, food, candid moments that I’ll probably get a lot of backlash for..and loads more that I won’t mention lest my ideas are purloined!

I’d like to thank all those who send me DM’s and sweet messages about resuming this here blog. I hope we can truly interact and have this blog as a platform to share and live through each others moments in terms of fashion as well as all the other bs that plagues us humans.

I’ll let my first(sic) post be this Iro&buba that twinster managed to post before me..ugh! Y’aaall i made this myself!!Morning of! Because my sister wouldn’t do it! And you say there’s benefits to having a twin! Hmph! I kid..she did help by running(wobbling??) around town looking for fabric while I worked elsewhere. So sweet.

Thanks for your patience and stay tuned! It’s going to be a fun ride!

    We need to form a club and talk about being single over wine. I have been single four years now with no hope of change, I try but there’s too much drama involved I would rather concentrate on building myself. I think there’s so much going on in the society that needs to be addressed and personally the first step is to admit going through the emotions. You have always been a natural at this blogging thing don’t give up yet.

      we really should! I wish people would just open up and be free without the need to be seen as perfect every damn time! As for you being single… have to put yourself out there…i don’t mean going out to clubs or meeting every random guy with a nice byline. just talk freely with new people..people you’ve never met..and be silly,be open and honest..don’ try to please anyone! Not ashamed to say i do it online and that way once you sense he’s not good company youdon’t need to make any excuses to leave…you just turn your head and ‘accidentally’ block a human! Hell I’m even on Tinder and have a date this weekend with a gentleman named Kyle…lol once you go into something with no expectations and just want a good chat..there can’t be any drama! make friends honey!

        When do we start this club? Plus we can rotate venues and sample all sorts of wine in all the glitz and clam this world has to offer….

        I sooooo get the getting myself out there idea..hail, if it was up to my mum and all my living aunts, I’d be on baby number two!! But seriously though, I have tried, but I keep on getting heavily disappointed and sad and sad don’t look good on me.

        I think at the moment,I’m happy building me. Its worth my time at the very least. I’ve been down and broken so many times and I only learnt to accept that broken crayons color just fine.

        This blog gives me life… I always peek at it. I love your energy. It reminds me of my own. I look forward to all the posts, I cannot wait for fitness, and food and fashion..and all of it (I think I’m gushing a lil but I’m being honest)..

        BE SHAMELESSLY YOU… Love your space. And please please please.. Continue blogging.

        I’ll make it happen! I think it’s important to have a forum where us girls can openly discuss our issues and stuff that goes on in our lives…everyone needs an ear. Let me plan for it and then spread the word. In the meantime do you! build yourself into the person you need to be! lol thanks for the love! Gush away!

    You are both fabulous in your own special individual ways. Trust me, the ones who you think are well on their way to the finish line may not feel that way when you talk to them and may even think you are well ahead of them. Be gentle on yourself and keep keeping it real, loved the honest post!

      You’re so right! Everyone has their own struggles really…I’m just probably the only one ready to share mine with the world. Thanks for the kind words and for taking the time to read and comment!

    Finally there is just one person out there who doesnt feel the need to be seen as perfect.Finally there is one beautiful soul that understands that its human to go through things.
    Lisa if I ever met you in these streets one of these days Ill simply hug you for 30mins…haha for 30 mins.
    Its so nice to just have one imperfectly perfect person saying it as it is.
