Black girl in China….again.

I am leaving…on a jet plane…I don’t know when I’ll be back again… Ok, so that last part is a lie, I know when I’ll be back. I am going to the east yet again. I am going to China and will be there studying for 3 years. I’m not the only one, nor am…

Focus T25 Full Review

I have been meaning to post this for a while but I kept putting it off because I felt guilty. Guilty that I haven’t worked out in almost 2 weeks, 2 WEEKS!!! However it was beyond my control. The only reason I have finally decided to post this is because I plan to get back…

#DTBY: Thato Mokgadi of Thato Whis launches her winter collection

Last week Thursday, I along with local fashion lovers, was treated to a small show debuting Thato@Whis’s 2014 Winter collection.

I love the stories, artwork and characters, and have been caught in a discussion or two about them as though they are real people. When a comic inspired movie opens at the cinema I am one of those…

Touring Jozi: A walk through Motsoaledi

When most people go to the city of Johannesburg 4 hours down south of Gaborone, it’s to frolic in the huge malls and exchange some hard earned cash for that which their heart desires. Rarely, if at all, do people go there to visit the slums and understandably so, they’re not exactly a holiday destination….

Museveni’s anti-gay law and Arizona’s Anti-gay bill

Some things we will never understand while living on planet earth. Or rather, some things – as obvious as they may be to certain people – are hard to understand to we mere mortals. At least that’s what I think…this post is yet another reminder or confirmation why I deeply dislike the paternalistic and somewhat…

Focus T25: 6 week update

Time for a quick Focus T25 update! I completed the Alpha calendar a week ago and I am now a week and a day into the Beta calendar. I must say I am loving every second of Focus T25! Beta Calendar Alpha was very focused on cardio while Beta emphasizes more on core work and…
