Child of the Sea

For as long as I can remember, the seaside has been my home. The place where all my fondest memories lead back to. My parents often tell stories of me as a toddler being drawn to the water almost instantly… running into the ocean with bright eyes and a wide smile as soon as my daddy let me down from his arms. I did everything you’d think a child would do. Build the biggest sand castles, only to pretend I was a giant and crush them moments later… to getting buried in the sand. It was the place that brought me joy.

However overtime it has become my place of solace. Embracing me when I need a hug. Washing away my fears and all the pain a young black woman like me faces in the world we live today.


There’s something about  water that I’ve been unable to shake from diaper days. It’s almost as if I was born of the ocean, a child of the sea.

That’s where this helpful little hack comes in. Continue reading Useful Uni Hack #1: Online Grocery Shopping

First Year of Uni? My Tips!

So for those of you that don’t know, I just finished my first year of undergraduate study at the University of Leicester in the U.K. In short form, the past year has been the ultimate roller coaster, from moving to a totally different country (I absolutely love it!) and living all on my own, to making the best friends a girl like me could ever hope for.

In even shorter form, let’s just say my first year was greatness, amazing, phenomenal.. (and every other word in the dictionary with a meaning along these lines).

But for those of you who are probably headed to uni this upcoming fall, you might be a bit apprehensive about the transition from college, especially if that’s paired with moving to a brand new place (whether that be country or city). That’s why I’m sitting down at my desk in the middle of my work day writing this post. Continue reading First Year of Uni? My Tips!
