Life took over!

Hey, remember me? It has been a while since I wrote a post but I can honestly say that I’ve missed you terribly. I absolutely love blogging and missed the the process of creating and connecting with my online friends.You see, over 2 years ago I started this blog with big intentions and an open heart, but somehow, somewhere down the line, life took over and I got sidetracked, like seriously sidetracked.

Hey, remember me?

I feel like a total fraud! Yes, i said it. I have been hiding out and lying to myself because I’ve been gripped with fear. What is this fear you may ask? It’s the fear of rejection, the fear of allowing myself to be open, to be vulnerable and in the process opening myself up to being judged and criticised. The fear of not being good enough, and being rumbled as a fraud. I started writing this blog post around 4 months ago and I’m only just getting round to finishing it now. View Post

It’s Friday!!!!!! Which means I have another inspiring lady to share with you, and this time it is the go-getter that is our Friday Female:Teurai Chanakira! This young lady never fails to impress me with her determination, resilience and discipline that allows her to fearlessly pursue her dreams and make them a reality. She is lawyer, turned model, turned fitness trainer extraordinaire. Tee and I have actually never ‘physically’ met, although we’ve been virtual friends for over 5 years now and shared many a Skype date where we literally spilled our guts out to each other, shared our deepest insecurities and biggest dreams with each other. This young lady is a true friend and quite an inspiration to my life. So without further ado, Lets get on with the questions shall we?

inspirational women

Hello Lovelies, so I’ve decided to start a new weekly post called Amanda Millie’s Friday Female. I’ve been wanting to do this for a while and I actually don’t know why I haven’t done it till now to be honest. I have grown up with so many strong women around me who have really inspired me to the person I am today, and I think there is nothing more beautiful than women celebrating other women. I would love for you guys to get involved as well, if there is anyone in your life, work or whatever form whom you consider worthy of being in the spotlight, then please drop me an email and I will be more than happy to feature them.

   Hello lovelies, I know you’re probably thinking…look at her popping up out of nowhere talking about her current beauty favourites, after her little hiatus;-). I didn’t want to end the year without writing a blog post, so I’m killing two birds with one stone here. I’ve really missed blogging and most importantly I really wanted to connect with my readers and say THANK YOU!!! Thank you for making this relatively new blogger fee totally welcome in this little big olé virtual space we all share. I’ve really learned so much in so little time and am back with a new vigour and passion for the blogging life.  Without further ado, here’s some beauty products I’m loving right now, if you can then do check them out and let me know what your thoughts are.

catching up

catching up!

Hello lovelies, It’s been so long since i wrote a post, a month to be exact I can hardly believe it myself, so please bear with me as I’m working on catching up!

I haven’t deliberately stayed away, I promise. Life just took over and I’m sure you know how that story goes, between having 5am call times/7 days a week, working 16 hour days and still finding the time to be a mommy whilst holding onto to my sanity, something had to give. Saying that though, I have had a pretty amazing couple of months and I have definitely learned a lot about myself and making my dreams a reality, I can’t wait to share my news with you in due time.

I found this cute notebook at TKMaxx and loved these words.

I found this cute notebook at TKMaxx and loved these words so much I had to buy it!

So the blogging may have taken a backseat momentarily, but I am back and I’m here to stay baby!!! I may have also stalled at day 28 of the 30 day blogging challenge, but I’ve decided not to beat myself up about that and still fully intend to cross the finish line with my head held high. Speaking of the blogging challenge, look out for my next blog post where I’ll share my experience on the challenge and how I got on.

Whilst I was away from the blogging world I realised that if I really want to take this seriously, I’m going to have to make some changes. First up…PLANNING! I have a ton of posts I want to share with you, but I’ve noticed that I tend to get so bogged down by other commitments I end up feeling overwhelmed and nothing gets done. I’ve gone and made myself a little planner, the intention is to blog at least 3x a week, which for me seems doable. Next thing I really want to do is to CONNECT and COLLABORATE. It can feel so lonely in this virtual world of ours, with nothing but me and my laptop, usually in my bed after the lil dude has been put to sleep. To be honest if it wasn’t for the awesome support from everyone in the blogging challenge group, I probably wouldn’t have made it this far. I am a social creature by nature and there’s nothing I love more than connecting with likeminded people, sharing ideas and supporting each other. My intention is to make more of an effort to connect with other bloggers and step out of my comfort zone. I have so much to learn and I’m totally ready and willing to take things up a notch or two.

I also want to make time to LIVE! I am a little ocd sometimes, especially when i’m in work mode, so much so that I miss out on so many experiences. Getting my priorities straight, finding a happy balance between work, play and family is my idea of bliss. 

Now that I have set my intentions, you have my full permission to hold me accountable and call me out if I start slacking again, but for now I think its time I signed off and got on with some writing. 

Until next time, stay blessed and Love the life you’re living! xoxo
