As we all know, there is nothing as such as too much savings – on “rainy days” (difficult time) in your life, your savings may be the only option you have to bank on.

When we go through challenges in life, a lot of us tend not to see ourselves beyond where we are.

DIY PEDICURE IN 5 MINUTES

I have been doing my pedicure for a long time now. I would say it became one of my DIY (do it yourself) beauty routines when I moved to Europe. Not only does getting my pedicure done myself save me time, it has saves me tonnes of money. Let’s face it, a round of pedicure costs anywhere between 40 to 60 euros, so if you get pedicure once a month, you would have spent a total of 480 /  720  euros a year. That in my humble opinion is a lot of money especially if you are saving for a specific need or project or simply, if you are on a budget.

Well, you don’t have to worry about paying that much anymore. Today, I have a step by step guide on how you can do your own pedicure by yourself at home. Let’s have a look………

Today on motivation Monday, I am writing to encourage you on the power of vision boards and how to make them work for you………

How to Take Measurements & Determine Your Body Type

One of the attendees of my previous Masterclasses told me one of the reasons she couldn’t wear nice clothes is because she doesn’t understand or know her body. I told her she recognises the problem already and then we took up the challenge from there and together we were able to solve all her problems.
