University Series | Writing your personal statement

Welcome back to the University Series! If you’ve read my previous University Series blog “Should I go, Should I not” I want to say a massive thank you! The response to that particular piece was overwhelming so I hope the next coming blog posts are just as resourceful! In this particular post I’m focusing on…

Practical Steps | How to align with your WHY!

Welcome back, Lovelies! As we’ve crossed into the seventh month of 2019, I wanted to remind you (and admittedly myself) how to align with your WHY!¬†Well the most obvious question to ask is, what exactly is your “Why” and why is it so important? Well look no further! Read my blog below to introduce, or…

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…

Confident and Introverted!

Welcome back, Lovelies! Today I’m exploring the topic of confidence and how that intertwines with being an introvert. Now whilst I know that my general outward persona can come across quite confident in particular settings, I’m generally more introverted, so at times I find that I’m lost in my own sauce rather than being an…

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…

Transitioning: What I would do differently!

Happy Sunday, lovelies! Inspired by a recent Instagram post by a fellow Curly, CurlyGalLal, I thought it would be interesting to discuss what I would do differently since I transitioned into my natural hair journey, exactly two years ago! [Click below to see my Curly Hair Transition from 2016 to 2018!] I’ve talked about it…

Let’s talk: Body Confidence!

Welcome back, my lovelies! This is something I’ve wanted to talk about for a while…and it’s become more apparent over the Summer months that “body confidence” is something which affects a lot of us; no matter your age or gender, at some point you’ll be affected by it one way or the other. I’ve shared…
