What I learnt in | July 2019!

Hey Lovelies! If you’re a regular reader you’ll know that my ‘What I learnt In…” segment was something I did religiously each month some time ago. In all honesty, I fell off. Yep, there you go…straight honesty. I think this particular segment is so important. It allows me personally to reflect, check, and move…by that…

University Series | Should I go, Should I not?

Welcome to a new blog series! This is the first blog post of an entire University Series which is probably made up of a ridiculous number of blog posts because their are so many areas to cover! This is super important to me, I went to University with literally no knowledge or understanding of what…

Raised by an Immigrant: My Grandmother’s Memoirs

“The future is yours!” – A quote by my Grandmother… … Having just spent the bank holiday weekend in deep conversation with my Grandmother about her life prior to and following her arrival in the UK, I felt inclined to share not just segments of her experience, but a few of the key ‘qualities’ she’s…

IT’S TIME TO BREAK THE CYCLE

Welcome back, Lovelies! Today’s post is a deep rooted, thoroughly thought through post, in relation to the cycle of “generational curses” and life traumas which have a way of capturing you and holding you accountable to your past. I’m here today to discuss my own life traumas and tell you, you have the power to…

For Coloured Curls…

Welcome back, Curlies! • I’ve recently taken a dip in the ‘coloured curls’ pond and after three years of absolutely no dye or any form of colour on my curls it’s taken a little while and some soul searching to get use to! I know, I know…dramatic! However, when you’ve dedicated your entire hair journey…

What I learnt in: September ’18!

Welcome back, lovelies! I know I know…September?! Ally we’re in October…shock horror, another delayed blog post. I’ll be honest though, when life is throwing things at you from different directions it can be really difficult to centre yourself and compartmentalise your priorities. Blogging, is of course, a massive priority for me…however with that being said,…

ONE YEAR BLOG ANNIVERSARY!

On the 1st October 2017 a very timid and conscious 23-year-old set about the creation of what once was ‘MoreThanAWoman’. At the time, this particular blog’s purpose was to discuss topics surrounding real life drama, such as the misconception of a mixed-race person having “the best of both worlds”, what life after University was really…

CHANGE your life – CREATE your success!

Welcome back people and Happy Sunday! What better way to start the new week than by putting out some positive affirmations which will gear us towards our own personal goals and overall successes?! 2018 thus far has massively taught me the importance of being resilient, patient, humble…you name it! I’ve also tried to become a…

What I learnt in: August ’18

Another month, another lesson…or multiple lessons, learnt! Whenever I experience particular emotions or find that I’m going through a particular pattern of behaviour, I like to note them down in my phone so that I can reflect on them at the end of each month and also ‘unpick’ why I experienced those things. This month…

What I learnt in: July ’18!

Welcome back, my lovelies! July was such a vital month for me in so many ways and as a result, I really did learn a lot! Things that took place in my life, both personally and professionally, have really shaped me and I’m excited to see what the month of August has in store but…
