Tenacious Talks

When we speak of wealth, travel is definitely top of mind because as we all know “the world is your oyster”. With much to discover, experience and marvel at, time is definitely of the essence when it comes to travel. We all underestimate just how much the checking in, flying and all other logistics can take away from our experience. Also, just how frustrating it can become. This is why I believe cruising to the worlds most exquisite destinations in a luxury cruise line offers you a fuller, simpler and quality experience in your travels.  With my discovery of Cruises International, I’ve come to appreciate their  attention to detail to ensure that your experience is perfectly tailored to meet your travel desires. With a wide range of Cruises to choose from, your consultation at their private concierge lounge will leave you with a crystal clear view of what to expect…

Hey Lovers! Some of you may have peeped my Insta stories on the day of Lorna Maseko’s True Love cover luncheon at Codfather, Sandton. For those who didn’t, I’ve shared a vlog from the day below. But before we get into that, I would love to share with you all just how much the article on Lorna by Kemong Mopedi stuck out for me, as well as how I personally identify with some of what I read. Energy speaks louder than me saying hello to you, and it’s not something you can fake. I’m very down to earth and just want to spread positive energy at all times. – Lorna Very often, we tend to create ideas in our minds of who a person is before we even get the chance to have a personal interaction with them. Our conclusions are largely drawn from hearsay as well as the visual…

I don’t think there’s ever been a crazier time to be a women in this world! The roaring inside of us, our strength, our compassion, our intellect and everything about ALL the women in us are being tested… in more ways than one. The woman who dares to strive for excellence ethically, without having to compromise who she is. The woman who is fierce enough to comfortably live in the skin she’s been blessed with but has to run through survival tactics everyday should harm come her way. The intelligent woman who finds value and meaning from being a homemaker but is faced daily with words thrown at her such as lazy or incapable. The woman who has to work multiple jobs and cross night to complete her studies. The woman who is beautiful enough to make it on a magazine but is of color and therefore her voice is invalid…

Hey lovers, Once again, the Summer season is creeping up on us. With only one month to go, the chatter around summer bodies is growing louder and wider! We all know the saying which goes “Summer bodies are made in winter,” so I hope you’ve been sowing that seed you wish to reap the rewards for in summer!  However, I feel as though as society we’re slowly but surely moving away from working out for a certain season and are leaning more toward leading a healthy lifestyle all year round, and I’m pleased with this! Finding a work out routine which works uniquely for you is the best way to effectively see results, oh and of course help you keep up the consistency! And while others may prefer to go to a gym to work out, others- like myself- prefer work outs in the comfort of their own homes and…

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h_AW32Yl6ps&spfreload=5 Each and every one of us have a woman/women who have played a significantly large role in seeing us to being the young ladies we are today. We simply don’t tell them enough how grateful we are for their presence in our lives or can’t put together in words our gratitude for all the moments we witnessed and those which they worked tirelessly “behind the scenes” to ensure we are well taken care of. For me, that woman in undoubtedly my mother, Fiki Tsekiso. The older I get the more I am able to recognise as well as appreciate the woman that she is to not only my sister and I, but to the community at large. This selfless mbokodo of mine has been through her fair share of trials and tribulations but always comes out stronger and wiser. When I think back to the time when both my sister…

I recently did a Sports Glam photoshoot with People Magazine which I absolutely loved! I embraced the fusion of my two loves – sports and fashion – and couldn’t have asked for a better shoot. I have been playing sports for as long as I can remember: from being the only girl on the field playing mini cricket at tournaments during primary school, right up to being Vice-Captain of the KZN touch rugby team. Sports has done so much in building my character – and being my “escape”. It saved me from getting into a whole lot of trouble and instilled in me such critical life values, and that is why I’ve decided to go all Sport on you for this blog post. In the new age South Africa, where we speak so proudly of our growth and economic transformation, we thus have the responsibility to grow, nurture as well…

It’s 1:52 AM and I just can’t seem to get my body to shut down and rest. Oh well, I guess this is all for a reason – I mean, we haven’t had “Tenacious Talks” in a minute. I think this time is a particularly good time, having just passed Easter, to engage. Also, it’s quite an interesting and trying time in politics in our country. Let me tell you, I’m so exhausted. The energy has been so overwhelming and exhausting! No matter how much we may try to avoid or distance ourselves from the realities of what’s going on in our country, we simply can’t! During one of the most recent strikes in the country while driving myself to Steers for some junk to feel better, a journalist from the Daily News contacted me for my opinion on the military print possibly being ban from being worn by the…

Hey ladies – and gents 🙂 So, it’s that time of the year once again where it starts getting a lot warmer, signalling that I can get back to my bikini life. The melanin-rich skin becomes darker; the sea water feels warmer; life gets so much better. I mean, as a young African lady who grew up in various conservative environments, it has taken everything IN me to grow into being fully confident in my flaws (and all). With this in mind, I totally believe that I have reached my personal pinnacle when it comes to being confident in my femininity and the beautiful curvaceousness that it comes with. Firstly, I must acknowledge what a privilege it is to be living in an era that allows for limitless expression, enabled by the generous array of social media platforms. I recently posted one of my unedited takeouts from a photo-shoot where I was wearing swimwear on my Instagram page and had someone have a go at body-shaming me –  apparently having the time of their life…

Don’t hold yourself back by doubting that which is invested in you, that which you have been assigned to. Be sure and confident, unapologetically so, of the vision which has been planted and rooted so deeply in you. Behind every door you will be dealt a different set of cards. Your job is simply to remain calm and make the best of the cards dealt. Celebrate your successes and be further motivated by your failures as well as the milestones reached. Reflections of the past can offer you greater perspective. Taking that time to reflect can help you map out the destination you wish to get to and figure out the little roads which will get you there. Live beyond your day-to-day feelings s, life beyond yourself !
