Lush Craze!!!

Processed with VSCO with f2 presetso… It’s been a couple months since my birthday in July and I’ve got some pretty nice gifts from friends and family. One of them… Or “most” of it should I say were lush products. Now, everybody knows how much I LOVE lush products. There’s just nothing like them, I don’t n know what it is but it just feels right to soak in a lush bath with a lush face mask on on the regular. Especially being an Au pair after watching kids all day long I literally fantasize about my lush baths in the evenings. They’re just soooooo refreshing. I was actually running out of all my faves so I took my $50 got card (thanks Nat and Jordyn) and restocked on my faves and a couple of new things as well

This next one I can’t wait to try out, since fall is around the corner, Lush has all new fall/Halloween products out!!! yayyyyy so I picked out this one and another floral leaf shaped one which Ive used up already(ooops) hehe

Inside The White House

So, I am a dreamer, a very big dreamer, I’ve always been, even if I say I’m not or say it will never happen, a part of me always holds on to the fact that it’s going to happen, because once I put my mind to something I can’t imagine it any other way. I’ve had loads and loads of experiences that I’ve actually picture in my mind happen! One of them being coming the the US.
I never thought that a South African girl like me that lived in about the smallest town there is would EVER even come near an opportunity like mine, EVER. And now I’m here, somehow by Gods grace and my wanting it more than I knew subconsciously, I’m here. Of course I’ve wanted to live in the more popular places on tv like New York or Cali but I got placed in Washington, D.C. , the nations Capitol. And I am blessed to be here, I love it here, I get to be in the same space and the president of the United States haha Ayyyyyyy, breathe the same air LOL. I find it pretty neat, don’t you?

I didn’t even think you could go inside the White House I thought it would just be a look at it from afar and that’s it but I found myself walking the floors of the State Dining Room HOW LIT!
It took a while before we got approved to actually go in but my time came and it was GLORIOUS. How many civilians can say they’ve been inside the White House? #BLESSED Haha here are some pictures

MY BIRTHDAY!!!

 

So.. my birthday party happened and it wasn’t nearly as awkward as I thought it would be, infact it was pretty special. My host mom, as always, went all out with the cake. It .Was. Gorgeous. Real Pinterest style! *heart eyes*

It was a purple theme, I’ve always liked that color, my friends were there, the kids were there, we laughed and they sang Happy Birthday, it was really lovely.

I don’t know if its because I’m getting older, but, this birthday really meant a lot to me, I realized how many people actually care about me, everyone I’ve been away from back home and the new people in my life. People go out of their way to give me the best day. All of the wishes that everybody sent to me were really touching, I always cry on my birthday because people say the most wonderful things. Usually I am so awful about taking compliments about myself and wonder why people actually love me HAHA , my bestie says I’m ‘so mean to myself’ but on my birthday is the only day I believe all the nice things people say because they all describe me in the same sweet ways, isn’t that weird. It’s the  consistency that lets me thing hmmmm, maybe I am those things LOLZ, Buuuuut  on a real note it helps me believe and think about myself in a more positive way, makes sense? I love my life right now, I am so grateful, I am blessed with so much love and support, my entire life has been this way and continues to be, as I grow in my life I still meet AHHHMAZING people and I LOVE  every single one of them!

~THANK YOU FOR A WONDERFUL BIRTHDAY~

10 MORE HOURS TILL I’M 23!!

IMG_0365 Turning 23!!! 
Those little glittery stars are my hopes and dreams, sprinkling them all into the universe so that the may someday be, with faith ofcourse, loads of it! 

Ahhhhhhhhh , so this is what I want to write,okay,here we go... I wanna say what I feel this very moment, firstly, very anxious, I don't know why, not bad anxious, just anxious.I don't really like being centre of attention and I feel awkward when people come to make a big deal about my birthday, I am actually away from home, I am an Au pair in America, have been for the passed 20 months now, did I mention this in my "about me" section of my blog? I don't think so, anyways last year my wonderful host family threw me a party and it was great, it was awesome there was a really beautiful cake and we sang and there were candles of course, but this year I just don't know, I don't want anything, oh my gosh , is 23 the beginning of my not being excited for birthdays anymore??? I'm too old, I'm too far! I want fun and happiness and cheerr!!
Anyways I feel awkward and probably will until my birthday comes and goes, I just don't want people to think that I want anything!!!! I just don't want anyone to think I'm "expecting" something ya know, anyways I'm turning 23 in less than 24 hours and this is me, here, talking to my blog, feeling anxious. (maybe a little bit excited, but shhh don't tell anyone)
No idea where exactly my life is going *sigh* but I'm not worried. I'm just living each day as it comes, also on a side note, with my life so far I've come to notice that there always seems to be another door, another stepping stone to step on, so I'm gonna give credit to the Man upstairs for that. 
Happy birthday to me! 
Maybe 23 is where it all kicks off, right? Hahah 
Finally finding love, getting the job of my dreams.. 
But.... I'll keep you updated. Let's get this ball rolling!
