Easter, Fish? or EGGs?

20160327_105829[1]The social network was filled with a controversy, between Christians and non believers in Christ, to Christians like me this Easter weekend like any other was all about church, and fish.

I was happy with going to church  throughout the week in preparation for Good Friday and the Resurrection of Christ on Sunday. my Friday began with church , than a family braai after church where all my cousins and I met at my uncles house, Braaid a lot of Snoek fish and just had a good time together as peers. than on Saturday it was church again, this time from 6pm till 12pm where we begin the new year celebrating the resurrection of the son of men. than on Sunday I had the most special time, that is when one of my youngest cousin was getting baptised, I really enjoyed the ceremony, as I got a chance to renew my vows with God.

I feel that I am blessed to be a Christian because I had a sense of belonging this weekend unlike just eating Easter eggs and braaing meat like I do on any other weekend, I had a change of scenario, and a change of being, that builds me for the better every year.

I am 100% all for #EASTERFISH

Talent Or Trend

As soon as I saw this meme I was so excited and happy that I’m not the only youth concerned with the direction of music these days, I feel that music has taken a total 360 turn, and the problem is that; it is not for the better. when I listen to music that was made in the past I feel myself been taken to another place, I would feel as if I am in a whole new different universe it is always amazing, not just that; but music would give me meaning, it would heal me and would build me.

The music I hear today just encourages me to turn up. All it is, is a fashion, it is all about trends and its like a scientific experiment “monkey see, monkey do” #THEDAB I just hope it changes, I hope music revisits its old foot steps and finds its, TALENT, which is, its ROOT.

Divas In Music: Beyonce & Rihanna

These two ladies are inspiring queens of their time, each with a unique kingdom of their own. One is a sophisticated classy lady and the other is a bad girl. one could say that one is a women and one is a bad girl.

Beyonce

Beyonce is a sophisticated women who is married has a baby and is one of the richest women in the world. She is perceived as a goddess with most men and women see her as one of the most beautiful women in the world.  But it is not her looks that make her this loved, it is her talent and passion in her art. she is what you can call a true artist, she has a certain mark in her work that when she is part of something it is easy for anyone to notice and know that she had something to do with it.

With 8 albums, 38 wins and 99 albums, her hard work has truly paid off. Her family matters being properly being blinded from the eyes of the tabloids, showing that she does not use her life to achieve her goals, but rather her true talent. She is not only a great prestigious musician also a phenomenal actress, most have tried to shade (bad talk) her acting, but her acting awards and nominations have proven them wrong.

She is not just a star but a true inspiration to many people, most people wish to be like her, and some like me wish to achieve what she has. Not only as an artist but in any industry one could wish to achieve the platform that she has taken, given by no one but by earning it through hard work.

Rihanna

Rihanna is associated with the characteristics of being a bad girl through how she expresses  herself in her clothing, make up, hair, music, and her lifestyle itself. She is known for throwing the best new years eve parties, alcohol, drugs and Gothic style.  Although that is not the only reason why she is such a success, she also in her own lane of Queensland, is a great musician, her claim to fame was 2005; with her song Pon de Replay.

Her album was of a girl next door type of feel, than in 2007 she released her third album named ‘Good girl gone bad’, where she introduced her listeners, and the world to a new Rihanna, with her Gothic style and rock star kind of music. She made an excellent decision because this led her to new bigger achievements, that have made her the star that she is today.

Her relationship with Chris Brown, and the Abuse kept her name in the tabloids for a long time and gave her bigger opportunities. She is now also an inspiration to many women, showing that change is not always bad and it can make money, if you plan and do it right.

Both these women are self acclaimed, powerful and rich, they show that determination and hard work does pay off.

My Lit Weekend

I had one of the busiest weekend of my life, my Friday was dedicated to a high school friend;  we chilled and had a few drinks at #VintageCorner (A pub in Attradgeville, Pretoria), where a few drinks turned into a serious turn up till five in the morning Knowing very well I had to be ready by 10:00am  on Saturday for my Plus Size Audition for a company called #PlusFab.

Which was a very fun and learning experience, even though I did not make it, I learnt that I actually have the potential to be a plus size model, and that, there is a lot of good people out there, everyone was looking out for each other,  even though we were all in competition; we were all eager to help each other,  and calm each others nerves. After spending my whole day there, I went home, changed and went to a pool party in Midrand with old friends.

The party was so lit I regrettably couldn’t wake up for church on Sunday. Although later that night I went To the Soul Sessions (Where they play soulful music for the whole night, and came back Monday at 03:30am. I can never say that this weekend was chilled, it was too awesome.

So cheers to Good people, fun experiences and Lit Memories.
