The best skin care tip ever!!!

How I used activated charcoal to banish a facial rash in 6 hours. It went from red, painful, blemished to calm and beautiful skin. Plus several other uses for activated charcoal. Bloating, teeth whitening, cholesterol,blackhead and more.

Let me set the scene for you.

Its two days before a beauty event and I wake up to the angriest, feistiest rash on my chin. Like red, sore feisty. I literally tried everything in my box of tricks that comes to mind for calming skin down and nothing seemed to work.

Let's call this chin rash Debbie aka Debbie downer. Debbie was mad you guys, like just got fired from her dream job for something she didn't do mad. Usually I turn to Bentonite clay for my skin emergencies when all else fails. I basically had a big goop of clayish green on my chin for 24 hours. Debbie was still there and the b-clay seemed to just infuriate her more.

I had one last trick in my skin box, usually I use this for blackheads and whitening my teeth and it works like a charm. Friends meet activated charcoal. I mixed a half a teaspoon with a coin size amount of my Freeman's pomegranate peel off mask, applied it to my chin and went to bed.

The next morning Debbie was 97% gone and calmed down. You would swear Debbie had a full body luxurious swedish massage and woke up to a Mimosa filled breakfast. That's how amazing it worked in six hours, this literally will be my new skin emergency go to when nothing else works.

Like I mentioned I use it for whitening my teeth and black head removal but here are some other awesome uses for activated charcoal:
  • Reduces gas and bloating.
  • Treats alcohol poisoning.
  • Effective body odor treatment.
  • Relieves insect bites.
  • Anti-aging benefits.
  • Reduces High cholesterol.

Have you tried activated charcoal yet? I suggest you get some and keep it in your skin tool kit for when Debbie decides to give you a visit. 

~you can get you hands on activated charcoal at your nearest Dischem, that's where I got mine~

The thought of Mother hood has fueled my goal hunting

How I went from content to goal driven. We live in a time where we can create a career out of any passion. Monday Motivation!

The idea that life gets real once you find that positive sign on your pregnancy test is real. Some people are easy going and others are natural go getter's from birth.

I have always been somewhere in the middle. Hard working and risk taking at times but also very comfortable and content. But the minute I found out I was pregnant my train of thought and determination went full mode "lets make shit happen".

I know moms who pre-pregnancy had 9-5 pm jobs and were just coasting by but are now business owners and goal driven. That's motherhood for you, its a crazy combo of love, protectiveness and determination. You got a legacy now, you got someone to be a role model to.

My list of goals have somewhat gotten smaller, but the goals have become gigantic. Does that make sense?

Trust me when I say this, once you have your eye set on a specific goal nothing can stop you. We also live in an amazing time where people are creating their dream lives from ways that didn't exist before. If you passionate about it you can create a career around it. 

There is no stopping you.

If you a mom or pregnant did your passion for success get ignited ? I'd love to know.

Hold up its been a minute!

Pregnant back in South Africa and back to blogging.

I'm expecting,  like a baby, like the real deal not a food baby but a baby baby!!! In all honesty my brain is still catching up with my growing belly. I go from being totally caught up in new mom reads to the total opposite where I wanna do an insane heart pumping workout till I wanna puke (obviously I don't manage to ever do that). This will be a very exciting new chapter in my life and I cannot wait to meet the little peanut. In upcoming posts I will be telling you more about my pregnancy experience, for now this is a quick snippet of whats new with me. 

I have also been in Uganda for most of 2016 but now I'm back in my gorgeous country, trust me when I say this when you craving mainly South African cuisine and easily found treats being home is like winning the lotto.

My holistic approach to kicking anxieties ass!


Hi my name is Meghan and it's been 1 month since my last panic attack!

These words are so joyful to me, I have severely suffered from anxiety since 2010 . I was on pills, I went to therapy, I tried so much and still couldn't cope. Living a numb life was not for me either I thrived to feel in control! When actually thinking about it I knew I had to share these tips with you guys because I know how disturbing anxiety it can be. 

These are things that assisted me but please note anxiety is different from one person to the next so do ask your doctor and see if these methods will assist you. My approach has become more holistic over the last few months and that's what has seemed to help me.

Just for a quick background on me I suffer from PTSD and social anxiety even walking in a mall would get me feeling light headed. Over the years the symptoms got worse and even attending small gatherings were daunting. Its been a nightmare really. Thankfully for the first time in ages I haven't had the numbing panic attacks, only slight heart racing but these tips usually get me grounded in a few short minutes.

Midweek reading: foodies this one is for you!

Sorry for leaving you salivating ;)

Read this when you over being single


Among my friends I seem to be the "how can I meet someone" expert. It's kind of flattering to be honest. I will admit I'm not one to live a lonely life for long after any breakup and my advice does assist in building your new brand. Because the best part of breakups is you leave knowing more about who you are. Most of the time it's about the fear that there isn't much out there, like you basically in a drought or single desert that keeps you single. That is so far from the truth. 

Understand this if someone as amazeballs as you found yourself single, there must be even more amazing people in the same boat. By the way my advice works for my fellow introverts too because I am an introvert and I refuse to apologize for it. If you a Kourtney I got you covered babe ;) 

If you curious about my seriously sage advice here are my 5 top tips:
