Random Things That Have Happened Lately

Craig David Tweeted Me!

So the coolest thing happened to me the other day. I was reading the latest issue of Cosmopolitan – the one I told you all about the other day, and then I got to the Craig David mini interview, and I read the bit where he claimed he always responds to tweets. I was like, ‘I bet that is just him talking’, celebrities are too busy to respond to mere mortals like us right? So I decided to tweet him to see if he responds, and he did! I was well surprised and impressed to see he is a man of his word, and he is still keeping it real. I am glad to see he is not carried away with the fame and fortune in the celebrity world. Many of us are yet to be ‘somebody’, but we think so highly of ourselves, and we get cocky and lose the plot, which I think is very sad.

That simple act right there made my evening and got this post written. I am a fan of Craig David, I like most of his songs, some of my favourites are 7 Days and Walking Away. I know the lyrics of many of them off the top of my head. I am looking forward to his new album – Following My Intuition, launching later this month..

A Cat Breaking Into my Shed!

Another random thing that happened some days ago, was us catching our neighbour’s cat trying to break into our shed. Well I think that is what she was trying to do. It was so weird to watch. She saw us at some point and went over the fence. I still wonder what that was about. Our neighbour has a shed so while ours would interest the cat is quite puzzling to me. Maybe the cat owners can help me out..

Wacthing KUWTK Latest Season!

Me watching the latest season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians (KUWTK) is random because I stopped watching after the first few episodes. I found them so slow and boring. So for me to start watching the last few episodes in the season, some days ago is very random. Guess boredom has a major role in this random act of mine. KUWTK is one reality show I think needs to go away. I think we have all had enough now. It has been on TV for years now. I think they are running out of ideas. What more could happen? But I am loving the new E series – Rob & Chyna. Good entertainment there, lol..

Has any random thing happened to you lately? Do share..

This Style Icon needs no introduction but for those who are not familiar with her, Taraji P Henson is an American actress and singer, famous for her role as Cookie in the wildly successful TV show – Empire. I love me some Taraji P Henson any time, any day. Her style is literally style goals for me. I love how confident she looks every time she steps out. She is always looking so stylish, especially on the Red Carpet.

She has a banging body and she knows how to dress it. She wears her clothes, her clothes do not wear her! Just check her out in the white strapless jumpsuit above. She looks amazing! I love the fact that she did not over accessorize the look, she kept it very chic and very simple. White is definitely her colour.

Taraji P Henson is the definition of a true style icon. I can relate with her style totally. I can see myself rocking most of the pieces I see her wearing. She looks effortlessly chic every time and her carriage is superb. There is nothing more attractive than a person comfortable in his or hew own skin. Taraji can look good in pretty much anything with that figure and carriage. This brown beauty ticks all the style boxes for me. I adore her.

I also love the eccentric fashion sense of her character (Cookie) in Empire. It is quirky, colourful and crazy, definitely not my style but I love it. It is fun to look at and I get some inspiration from it sometimes.

You can see a bit Cookie’s style below:

How to Fight Jet Lag

Travelling is fun and exciting. I love seeing new sights and learning about different cultures. But when you travel across several time zones, your body finds it difficult to immediately adjust. This leaves you feeling sleepy, experiencing loss of appetite or even feeling sick. This feeling is known as jet lag.
Just the way you reset your watch to reflect the new time zones, your body also resets itself but not as easily as you reset your watch. Jet lag can be an extremely disturbing feeling. The good news is that there are ways you can minimize the effects of jet lag. It’s all a matter of being prepared and making the right choices.
1.    Make sure you’re fully rested before you travel
The first step to fighting jet lag is to have a good night’s sleep a day or two before you’re set to travel. The effects of jet lag are less for those who are well-rested before they travel. This is because adequate rest will help the body easily adjust to a change in time zone or withstand the effect it has on the body.
However, if you travel stressed out and sleep deprived then the jet lag will put undue strain on your whole system.
2.    Take the opportunity to nap on the plane
Jet lag first acts on your sleeping habits and make you feel tired. If it’s a really long flight, then make use of the opportunity to take a nap on the plane if you can. This will help your body reset better.
3.    Set your time and your mind to the one in the country you’re going to
This tip actually deals with the psychological effects of jet lag. When you’re travelling to a country with a different time zone, it’s only natural for us to think about what we would have been doing at that particular time in the country we’re travelling from and start comparing time zones.
This makes you less conscious about the time of the country you’re travelling to and your body will continue to live as if it were still in the country you’re travelling from. To solve this, you need to set your time and mind to the country you’re travelling to. This forces your body to adjust to its new time zone and living habits.
4.    Stay hydrated and exercise
Drink plenty of water while you’re travelling. Staying hydrated helps you effectively overcome jet lag. If you feel really sleepy after arrival, do some exercises to keep yourself awake. Exercise helps to fight jet lag and helps you stay agile.
5.    Once you arrive, don’t immediately go to sleep
This may sound really odd but you need to help your body adjust to the new time zone as much as possible. Forcing your body to stay awake until the local bed time will help your body reset faster. The only exception to this is if you arrive at your destination at night. If you arrive at night, you’re free to enjoy your beauty sleep.
