2015



Hey Zamundans... How are you guys doing?...
So the post title is called 2015 because I got inspired by a blogger 'friend' about her 2015... 
So am going to be sharing some of my 2015 moments, highs and lows; lessons and stuff.. 
So in the beginning of 2015 I was just coming out of a very very dark place in my life a.k.a depression.. I had lost my last surviving uncle in the previous year after loosing the other ones in past years so yeah I was pretty messed up... I made up my mind to stop self destructing mentally and move; push through mental struggles.. 
I also decided to take a bold step and start up my career..( now I have always wanted to do something with tv, talk show and acting to be precise).. 
So I moved to Ghana and started the hustle.. 
It was interesting and fast in the beginning cos I had all these people saying 'oh yes we want you we are going to do so and so and so together' so I was very excited and pumped.. After finding out that most of the time these people just think am a fool and want money from me, things began to slow down for me.. Like from 100 to 20 slow.. 
Still the part of my career I decided to take matters into my own hands and at the letar part of the year, I produced a talk show series and a movie (both will be out next year) this is the summary of my career!..
Now to love life nothing changed much in 2015 well I would say that the invisible walls were cracked open a bit but.... Let's just leave matter for Matthias (lol) 
My mental health was a roller coaster this year what!!!!! The things I learnt about myself, about people, about my surrounding it was like wooooo!.. 
Few lessons are 
- People will want to take you for granted at every opportunity they get, and it's not you it's just people and thats how people are 
- I learnt not to force it!... If you don't belong in a circle or with some people just don't force it!
- I am more loving than I give myself credit for, cos in this year my love has been thrown back in my face so many many times and I still wake up and say I love! (Now I don't mean romantically) 
- When I was younger all I wanted for was for mother to leave me alone lol.. Now all I want is for her to be here 24/7
- studied the signs of depression and whenever I was slipping back into it.. I changed the causing effects! 
These were some of my mental realization... 
To my physical health;..... I was going to type a long story for you and give you list of excuses which some of them made sense but I just became lazy and slacked! I added a few pounds back! 
So in summary cos I don't want to make this a long 'beautiful rubbish' i will just point out somethings randomly about the year 
- I learnt a lot about loving in this year 
- When I set my mind to something... Child!!!!! It's hard not to want to stop 
- Strategising was an important skill I had to learn this year 
- I don't have to talk to my friends everyday but I know they have my back!
- People changed in this year, some for the better others for the worse!

so finally let me just write my achievements, Highs and Lows

Achievements: 
-Wrote, acted and Produced my very first film under the mentorship of the veteran Paulina Oduro.... 
-Wrote, hosted and Produced my very first talk show 
- Organised music events in Ghana which ended up being successful 
- Found peace within myself and learnt how to control what goes on in my mind 
- Stayed away from sodas as much as possible YAS GAWD! am sure I didn't drink up to half pack of sodas in this year! Amen! 
- I was able to open up about love (romantic kind) which if you know me is VERY HARD to do 

Highs: 
-My mum's birthday 
-Meeting my mentor Paulina Oduro 
-Any celebration my family had 
-My brother buying his first house on my birthday 
-My mum acquiring a new shop... Yaaahh man! 
- My dad getting promoted 
- Opening the lines of communication with my baby sister 
-When two of my best friends came to visit Ghana 

Lows:
- With all going on, I noticed I became more lazy in a way (to do stuff) 
- Jeezzzz my blog suffered that laziness the most 
- allowing depression to take over sometimes 
- Knowignly being fooled and let it continue for a while.... 

Okay I think I should stop here...

  1. Your 2015 was definitely a lot! Lol, but that's life. Congrats on your career growth. Up up you go!


    2015 was an absolutely great year for me, not like I didn't have "downs" but I prefer not to dwell on them.
    I started taking big steps in my career,landed some pretty impressive styling gigs, registered my company, started my diploma in fashion styling, improved my relationship with my family, and Oh! I also learnt to treat my partner like the king he is(after God of course).

    Emotionally, I was really stable...unlike past years when I'd drown in grief and depression. My self concept got better, I began appreciating my natural beauty( hair, skin, etc).

    I can't even begin to talk about my increase in spirituality!!!! God has been too good!!! My highs in 2015 totally outweighs the lows.

    But One 'low' I'd never forgive myself for, is not launching my blog to the public as I planned. But thank God I have 2016 to catch up on lost times.

    Can't wait to see what 2016 has for us!

5 TIPS TO HELP REDUCE SPLIT ENDS AND BREAKAGE

Hey kinks what's up y'all?.... Greetings! I hope everyone is having a fab day?

Okay so to the post what is a split end?  The end of a hair strand is damaged resulting in the strand separating into two or more fragments.

Hair breakage is more of a problem for naturals than split ends because split ends is as a result of many activities that a TRUE natural try to avoid..

Most naturals really suffer from hair breakage and I used to be a part of the team (even do my hair still breaks it has reduced a lot)

Here are five tips to help you manage hair breakage..

TRIM YOUR HAIR AS OFTEN AS POSSIBLE:I came in contact with someone who told me that she has a phobia for cutting her hair and she was worried she was weird, but the psychologist in  me didn't see her as crazy though, this is a real problem that a lot of women have. With that being said,  trimming your hair doesn't mean you are cutting it off, it means you cutting of the damaged ends to allow new growth to be possible.

3 REASONS WHY YOUR HAIR ISN'T GROWING

Hey kinks what's up y'all? Happy weekend darlings..

So based on the numerous questions on hair growth, here are three reasons why your hair isn't growing.


YOU COMB IT ALL THE TIME: I have stressed this IN  my hair journey that I don't comb my hair all the time. In fact one of my new year's hair resolution is to comb my hair less this year..  So I take finger detangling serious and I am patient with it. Combing of natural hair (which is already hard in the first place)causes SERIOUS tension to your hair follicles and breaks your hair more than it would if you just finger detangle!.  


YOU DO NOT MAINTAIN A HAIR ROUTINE: like I have said in previous post you have to be consistent but not just consistent, you must have a hair routine or regimen.. Your hair has to be accustomed to a specific method.. It's not everything that is flying in the market that you should do (Charley trust me I learnt the had way).. There are a lot of DIY's out there but you have to be c…
