Which side of your family is #Shameless?

This has by far been my number 1 fave series of all time... pushing #Suits to number 2! I think I watched all seasons (1 - 4) in like one weekend and now I'm impatiently waiting for season 5... yoh Paul Abbott I need a fix man!. 

So, going back to the question at hand... I think my mother's side of the family is the most shameless, and I'm sure all my cousins will agree with me on this one. Let me break it down for you so you understand where I'm coming from lol. 

I'll start off with Fiona, the boss of the house. In my family, she'd be my mother's older sister. The first born of the family. She is the "never to be messed with" type, but yet so kind loving and sweet... her name is Margaret, but we call her "Dedo". I think the name came from one of the kids who couldn't pronounce Margaret, I'm not sure how it came about. She is a sober Fiona though - doesn't drink nor smoke, just on a natural high lol. 

Lip in the series reminds me more of mother, the "don't mess with me" and "fuck you" attitude that I like to think I possess, I got it from my momma beesh! Her siblings call her "Ziyashunqa" which means "don't play with fire"... she is a beast I tell you. She is a smart, business headed woman and street smart as well.

Liam, would then be my uncle Bebe, may his soul rest in peace. I say this, because I remember when they (siblings) had their squabbles my other uncles would tease him and say that he was adopted.We (me and my cousins) still don't know if this is true or if they were just saying it out of spite, and I sure damn ain't going to ask my mom or Dedo lol. 

Carl reminds me of my other uncle Gendi, the black sheep in the family, may his soul rest in peace. He spent most of his life in prison, and was proud of it. Like Carl, being unruly was a "thing" for him. He once got beaten up by the community (abo-vimbani vibes) and when we (the family) were begging them to stop, he just stood there, sort of like he was enjoying it. 

And then... saving the best for last lol, Mr Frank Gallagher. There's always that one uncle in the family, that's forver drunk and saying all those nasty things that "normal" people won't say out loud... that's my uncle Mandla, we (my cousins and I) call him "Bhut' Mandla". 

He is my hero, I think I become him every time when I get drunk lol. He drinks 24/7 and always has a story or two to tell. He once rented out his room (outside bedroom) to a foreigner and slept in an old wardrobe that was outside the house, just so he can have money to buy booze. He also stole a flock of chickens while working at a farm and kept them in his closet, fed them nicknacks that he also stole from the farm, just so he could sell them and buy booze.... but guess what happened to the chikcens? They all died lol. He does his laundry wearing sun-shades – claims his washing powder is too bright. I can go on and on and on and on about his madness lol. But I still love him, he is my special and fave uncle. 

I know I've left out Debby, Grammy and Sheils lol - but these are the the characters that came close when comparing with the characters in my family. If you haven't watched the series you won't get this post and I'm sorry for your my friend.

I don't know how I feel about this

Everyone who knows me will tell you that I am a liker-of-things, and yes... it's true, I don't even deny it. I do like things, trying out new trends, following trends, testing things out to see how they would look/feel on me etc. But this... Kelly O's new tatt... I really am not sure how I feel about it. 

I am crazy about the haircut though... madly in love with it! 

I'd love to know how you feel about Kelly O's new tatt, drop me a comment on the box below!

The hotness that is the world cup.

So, at work I've been tasked to work on a soccer campaign, can't say much about it yet as it's still hush-hush. Then I thought, "if I'm going to be working on a soccer campaign let me take advantage of the world cup and learn more about the sport". So, this past weekend I invited a couple of guy friends over, bought some booze and watched the world cup! 

Ladies, yall need to get on the world cup steez - I was drooling the entire time. I don't even know which teams were playing, all I know is that there's a lot of eye candy and how many times those hotties can get it lol #AllDayEveryDay and #3TimesOnSundays! 

I'm not saying you have to watch the world cup religiously but maybe once in a while you know, it might even score you some brownie points for "girlfriend of the year" lol. 

So here are my top favourite hunks (lawd, the things I would do to them...)

1. Neymar - Brazil 
No pressure gents ;) 

2. Sergio - Spain 
3. Ronaldo - Portugal 
Need I say more? 

4. Marcelo - Brazil 

5. Hernandez - Mexico 
6. Kevin Prince - Ghana
7. Benzema - France 

Ladies, if this is not motivating enough for you to watch the world cup then I don't know what is. 

Let me know who your favourite eye candy is on the box below.

Vaseline, a girl's best friend!

The best beauty product is underrated – we all have it in our houses and it is very cheap. I remember a few years ago, while doing my second year in varsity I was faced with the dilemma of finding the best beauty product for my face. And only now, after reading this article that I found online, I've figured it out! Damn, it took me 3 years!  

You might be surprised of all the things Vaseline can do for you - tried and tested by moi of course, so go on, try them too: 

1. Lather it all over your eyelashes overnight and watch them thicken. Vaseline makes your eyelashes grow!

2. Soften dry and cracked elbows.

3.  Softly rub Vaseline over your perfume spots (behind the ear, neck, cleavage, wrist) and your scent will last longer. 

4. Spread a little Vaseline over your teeth and lipstick smudges will be gone!

5. Apply some under your eye-shadow for a glossy effect. 

6. Rub it under the cap of your nail polish to make it easy to open the next time you want to use it. 

7. Mix with sea salt and come out of the shower feeling soft and sexy ;)

8. It helps remove false eyelash glue from your lash line.

9. Can be used to soothe and smooth skin after shaving. 

These are just some of the useful tips I found on the net; here's how Vaseline has helped my skin: 

1. It's known to every make-up user out there that it's never good to sleep without removing your make up. Well, my secret is apply it before applying all those harsh chemicals on other make-up brands. 

2. Then always apply Vaseline after removing your make-up. Give yourself about 2 weeks and you'll feel the softness ;)

3. When Winter season comes, I know it's time to buy me a big bucket of Vaseline. It's "bye-bye fancy lotions" season and "hello soften, all day moist and smooth skin all the way! 

4. I also use it mostly for my lips! Still remember back in high school when we were all broke and couldn't afford proper lipsticks? We'd just mix our Vaseline with "sweet-aid" (I don't know what they call it in English lol, it's not my mother) and then make a lovely lipstick!
