Mini Haul Series | The Body Shop

I'm excited to introduce a brand new section to my blog called the Mini Haul Series, where I share a small number of items I've purchased. These items can and will consist of anything from makeup, skincare, stationery, home decor and more! Today I'm kicking it off with a mini skincare haul from The Body Shop! 
The Body Shop South Africarecently had a sale, so over the weekend I picked up three products over the weekend when I popped in to see what was on special.  The first product I purchased is something I've been wanting for a while now, and that is a cruelty-free eye makeup remover.

I have yet to try this out but I'll definitely do a follow-up post in a winter skincare routine. Camomile is great for your skin, regardless i…

Introducing NEBU ✰

Today I'm adding two actual goddesses to the music section of #TheCreativeYouth*. Faith and Octavia are a duo called NEBU from South Africa and needless to say, they inspire me; their positive vibes, how they both embrace themselves and make their voices heard - and not just through music.

Miah Ke-leigh (MK): Who are you as individuals and how did you decide to become a duo?

So, apparently I would scare and intimidate Octavia with my fake smiles but after a while we just became friends and have always been around each other, until recently we've become spiritually and musically aligne…

Current Life Update: Youtube, Moving, Summer & Blog Updates ☆

Hello, fellow beings! It's been a hot minute since I last blogged but I'm back! Today's yet another current life update, so be prepared for a little bit of a ramble. These past two weeks have been the busiest of all so far this year; June has definitely been the most stressful month for me as I was busy studying for my final exams and moved to a new place. Believe me when I say everything is all over the place, because it literally is. I've been running up and down from apartment to apartment moving items; luckily I have friends and their parents who are super supportive given I live away from home in another country - so all the help I can get is always wonderful! I am getting ahead of myself, though, so lets back it up a bit as I fill you in on some of the details of what's been happening. 
Moving Houses...Again? I know what you're thinking - didn't you just move into an apartment?Well no, not exactly. Though that was a year ago, things didn't exactly w…
