March: Book Reviews & Figuring Out My Passion


What Are You Passionate About?

Figuring out my passion at the age of twenty two makes me feel slightly behind. I understand that everything takes time, but I'm super inpatient so I want it all right now. The journey so far has been slow, I really have to just push myself out of my comfort zone and try some new things. After reading Jason-RT's post on 'Mistakes' I realised that I am afraid to make mistakes and that's why I'm struggling to sort my life out lol. I think a little nerves is healthy, but when the nerves become overwhelming and turns you numb then that's just not cool. Sometimes it's necessary to make mistakes, there's always something to take from it, so I might as well step into something new and see where it takes me.

I'm thinking about exploring photography and possibly do some writing workshops/classes. I've alwayed enjoyed being creative; editing pictures and videos. Not the best at drawing but I do like to do a little doodling, I'm more of a practical person. I perform better when I can be physical, exams and tests aren't for me however the tests and exams don't stop once you leave school...unfortunately.

'Melanin Queen' note book & Pencil from MyEbonyBox | Starting & Running a Business for Dummies


I still want to have my own business, just not sure what steps to make in order to start. So I bought this book ages ago, but haven't actually looked at it since I opened up the amazon packaged box. I've had some time to read through a few of the pages and made some notes - So I guess this is a start.

I always get excited when I think about what I want to do, then I get anxious and I just end up putting off everything. I'm never going to achieve my goals if I keep putting it off because of a little bit of anxiety. When I actually make some concrete plans, I will share what my business will be.

Book Reviews


I shared my thoughts on the little bit of Black Skin, White Masks that I did read on my instagram story. Monique suggested that I should do book reviews, I wasn't too sure at first becuase I don't really read much. I did a twitter poll (I love twitter polls lol) and now it's looking like book reviews will become part of the content on my blog🎉  

KINK by Jay & Tri (Curlture) | The Fat Black Woman's Poems by Grace Nichols

I have started to make a list of all the books I want to read and review for my blog. A mixture of books for black women and some books that just look interesting to read. If you have any recommendations, then please let a girl know. 

Black British Literature Good Reads

Music

All the big tunes that I've been rinsing out during this month...

Love a basey beat paired with some smooth vocals. Definitely checking out the more of Savannah Cristina's music. 


Haven't heard from 11:11 in timmeee, came across this song whilst looking through soundcloud. 11:11 gives me partynextdoor vibes. 


Obsessed with Bassette's voice on this track.  This is one of those songs you play in the summer at a BBQ. 



Love me some Goldlink so I had to include this new song.


Featured this song on my mini instagram Shea Glo Review.


I made a guest appearance on Densu blog for Mother's Day. I did a mini interview with my
mum to get the 4/11 on motherhood. You can see what my mum had to say on Densu blog;
