November: Gratitude & Advent Calendar, With A Twist

November has been a quieter month, I needed some chill time before December started. I have some cool events coming up in December, a little heads up I like to share where I’ll be on my instagram story.

And thank you for the comments on my last few blog posts; Confessions of a British Born Jamaican & My Body Confidence Journey. I love improvised and personal posts, I always get the best responses. I feel so relieved when someone gets it, that reassurance is all I need sometimes.

Monday 4th DecemberBHBC (Black Hair & Beauty Chat) Social

Saturday 9th December – Master Class Media: Friendtor

Gratitude

I have been feeling super grateful this month. A shift in my confidence has been making it that little bit easier to be grateful. The cloud is lifting, everything is looking brighter. I am able to be more appreciative, instead of dismissive. It was easier to discredit myself, now it’s easier to pat myself on the back.

I spoke on this shift in my confidence in my last post – My Body Confidence Journey

I think I have stopped putting so much pressure on myself and used that freedom to give thanks for what I have and who I have in my life.

Advent Calendar, With A Sexy Twist

Your advent calendar reveals chocolates during the run up to Christmas. Whereas the one I got from OJ reveals tips on improving your solo play. I’m pretty sure my mum and sister thought I was joking when I told them this was coming. If only I recorded their faces when I revealed this to them, priceless.

I’m pretty sure this is considered self care?…

All jokes aside, I’m at a place right now where I’m not as worried about expressing my sexuality as I used to be. I guess this is a good way to introduce this side of me to my blog. I haven’t really touched on the personal bits, simply because I had no real place for it on my blog.

I’m still on this journey of self discovery, I can’t say I’m this super sexually confident woman now, but I have been exploring new sides to my personality. It’s been an interesting journey so far, when I figure out how to word what I want to say then I will go into slightly more detail. For now make sure you’re following me on Instagram, as I will be opening each door on my instagram stories.

Sharing is caring and all that

Exciting News

I really am pushing myself out of my comfort zone this year…. I will be speaking at an event in December about my mental health and removing the stigma within the black community. I am terrified and excited all at the same time.
