You are beautiful.


You’re imperfectly you
I see through the complexity of your quest for flawless
Honey, your flaws make you oh, so beautiful!

Love, me.


I’ve decided to look in the mirror everyday and fall in love with the person I see
Not because I experienced a rebirth and I’m suddenly perfect
But because I’ve felt pain and I didn’t let it break me
I let hurt paint me ugly but now, I see myself
I see the strength in my scars
I see the compassion in my eyes
I see growth and I’ve decided to not be so hard on myself
So, everyday, I’ll love every bit of me.


He takes everything you have to give,
Leaves you empty,
But at every turn,
He has you asking for more.
More time, more attention,
More dedication, more prioritizing,
More listening, more love.
That’s the most exhausting thing about a selfish lover.
Love shouldn’t leave you empty enough to always beg for more,
It gives more than enough.

Who claps when you win?

Last week, I had a sudden realization that I have willingly allowed people to starve me of unwavering support. I’ve had people claim they love me and have my back but when I win, they never clap. When I win, they pinpoint why it wasn’t good enough or how much better it could have been.

Last week, I felt genuine happiness when my best friend won. I screamed at the top of my lungs because I was proud and our prayers had been answered. For days after that, I couldn’t stop smiling because I felt unexplainable joy for a win that wasn’t even mine.

Last week, I learned that true friendship claps when you win. True friendship supports your dreams, holds your hand in prayer until you accomplish your goals and continues to push you to attain even more.

Last week, I learned that if a person claims to love and support me but offers me any less, I should walk away.


Love has left yet another scar,
I’m still unsure of why I let it in every time when I know how it ends.
Amidst the uncertainty, I’m certain it’s not meant to scar.
Something inside of me still lets me believe in it.

Cornbread mini-muffins

I love cute treats! If you’re anything like me then you want treats that don’t take you forever to make so you can have them in your mouth as soon as possible.

Today, I made cornbread mini-muffins because they are my new obsession. It takes 10 minutes to bake 12 muffins. That’s definitely every foodie’s dream. Of course, the basket was empty in no time because my sister couldn’t get enough. Baking another batch right now!

Serving size: 48
Prep time: 10 minutes
Baking time: 10-15 minutes

INGREDIENTS:

3/4 cup yellow cornflour
1+1/4 cups all-purpose flour (levelled-off)
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
2+1/2 tablespoons honey
3/4 cup milk (whichever you prefer)
1 stick unsalted butter.

DIRECTIONS:

  • In a medium bowl, mix the dry ingredients together (cornflour, flour, baking powder, sugar and salt).
  • In a small bowl, whisk the eggs together then whisk in the honey and milk.
  • Melt and cool the butter.
  • Add, the egg mixture and melted butter to the dry ingredients. Don’t over mix the batter.
  • Line mini-muffin pans with cooking spray or oil then scoop in the batter evenly. (I like to just fill it only half way because it will rise in the oven.
  • Pre-heat over to 350 degrees and bake for 10-15 minutes or until the top is golden-brown.
  • Cool the muffins down.

TIP: They taste better when served warm.

I hope you love them as much as I do!
