Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! Hope you’re having a day filled with love and laughter!

If you’re looking for me today, I’ll be dancing and knocking down a few glasses of Moët in my PJs. And since it’s Valentine’s Day, I’ll make sure it matches the mood and will go for the fruity Rosé version 🙂

And if you’re not one to share your bottle either, you can always stick your ownership on it (get your stickers here or here)

Have a beautiful one!

DRAGONS DENS & LESSONS OF 2016

Guys, I haven’t written in so long. I mean written, written. That’s because 2016 (since that’s where we’re getting, eh) has been such an odd one. As you might know, I’ve moved to Geneva last May, and it’s been the loneliest it’s ever been. Oh and I was pregnant, so the hormones didn’t help make it less of a mind fuck. So I guess because of all the changes, mental struggle and the constant monologues, I’ve lost track of myself a bit. I was so consumed by this tiny world of mine that all the conversations were happening there, and not on here. But I got out, and it’s time to look at 2016 cause as much as it was hard, it was full of successes and blessings. But most of all, it was life. None of the hardships were cases of Oh why is that happening to me now? No, they were just normal stages of life as one navigates through it, through womanhood, and 2016 was part of the process of going through some of these stages. It got so challenging at times that I have to make it worth it by looking for the lessons it allowed me to learn and the time it’ll potentially save me in the future, that’s if I learn that is.

 

So what were they?
