Love family days. Slow jams on the road, we eat from each other's plates, watch the kids play. #sundaybliss
One of the most beautiful ornaments you can wear is #peace. 
Peace and joy arises from within. 
A peaceful day for everybody.✨

My little girl gave me this flower today. She said, "Mommy I have a gift for you, this is for a real girl." Had to share.🌸
Hope you caught me on #sistahood this morning. Have a lovely saturday.❤️ #posted #weekend 📷: @72_photography
Because they are lovely.💐🌸
Find your happy pace, it really doesn't matter the pace, it's yours. Experience will teach you how important it is to keep going. In the end we will all finish.... eventually. #midweekmotivation
This is how I choose to start my day, it is so important to keep eating healthy & not skipping a meal. I am really happy to get back to it again. #healthymeal #breakfast #healthylifestyle
Hopscotch. Teaching her how to play, you're never to old to hop. #hopscotch #love #familyday. #gameswefindonthestreet
Yes we have gravity defying hair but our natural hair does grow in its kinky coily state. I also do understand wash days are incredibly difficult & painful for her but one day she will thank me & understand. One day she will understand the full story.  #kinkyisbeautiful #blackisbeautiful #naturalhair #4CHairChick #kinkandcoils #naturalrocks
It all starts off as a dream, then you realize it can become reality. #neverstopdreaming
Sometimes it's the journey that teaches you a lot about your destination.
This year is the beginning of a new journey & embracing all new experiences & challenges. I have never felt more ready to take the first step to my destiny. #higherlevels
You make me laugh till my tummy hurts. These memories we share.❤️ love you guys.
The one thing I admire about the locals, is their hospitality and spirit of respect & generosity.  ขอบคุณ K̄hxbkhuṇ🙏🏽
Probably thee most chilled person I've ever known. ❤️ #KohSamui #waterfun
"I will stay with you through the ups and the downs."🎼...Playing in my head whilst up there. #KohSamui

Don't ever let me go. Fly with me💙#KohSamui
#waterfun
Found this lovely swing whilst walking. I had to keep jumping into the water to cool off. ☀️☀️
Enjoying the water. It's so hot you can only be in the water. #waterfun
Today is probably the hottest day, I have had to jump into the water a number of times to cool off. #KohSamui
Breakfast and starting the day. #KohSamui
It's been great.
Paradise😍😍 an adventurous day, I truly enjoyed exploring the island. Planet earth #throughnanzyeeeyes
Sunset.
I am not perfect, my life is not perfect but my God is and I choose to dwell on his blessings, & not my imperfections. #whatasighttosee #Godisgood
Just before the #kayaking.
Queen of spamming. Sharing the beauty around me. Forgive me oh!
We've been to 4 islands today. They even tried to convince me about JamesBond island.
Row row row your #kayak gently down to #paradise🌴. Merrily merrily merrily. Life is but a dream.
🌴🌊☀️
It was worth #hiking all the way up for a beautiful view of #paradise🌴 by the time I got up here each & every sweat gland in my body had burst. Exploring the #islands. #hiking
A ray of light flickers in the sky. #paradise🌴
Off I go!! Some exercise. 🚤
Sharing some of the pics I took. Exploring the different #islands #paradise🌴
Snorkeling and the water is warm, coral was ok, over fishing has destroyed the reef. We must say our goodbyes to seafood.🤔
Today we are exploring the islands and taking it all in. This is #paradise.
This moment for me is everything. Pure bliss, just watching it all go down. I love this time of the day.
Sunset.
A lovely day.💙☀️🌊

Lovely restaurant with great views. #KohSamui
Made a new friend today and his name is Twain. He was so friendly & interactive. Towards the end of the trek after a discussion with the driver & asking numerous questions, I got to learn what it meant for Twain to have me on his back. This has been an eye opening experience. #welearneveryday #elephanttrekking #thailand

Happiness does not depend on what you have or who you are, it solely relies on what you think.

The food here is the best! I am sorry Mexico you were leading but Thai street food is amazing. #pineapplejuice so fresh! #KohSamui
Entrance...
We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves.-Buddha

Let it be a year of #noworries. If it falls off don't worry will put it back on, if it breaks, no worry will fix it again. That's life it's a rollercoaster & we appreciate all the highs, lows & bumps. #KohSamui🌴
Yes it's a new year but nothing has changed still going to feed my obsession with nature. There is too much to appreciate. Can't get enough. #KohSamui 🌴🌴
We all shine on...like the moon and the stars and the sun...we all shine on...come on and on and on.....-John Lennon

Happy weekend.😘
Think I need a holiday too.. It's that time.
I know it's holiday season and eating right may be difficult, it's important not to skip meals. 
#healthyhabits #cleaneating
The aftermath of a public holiday. Spending this morning cleaning up yesterday's mess, why can't people enjoy themselves without turning fun into violence. So many stabs & trauma. Stop with the violence. Let's have ourselves a #peaceful December. #casualty
Love summer, chasing sunsets.
Great afternoon hanging out with this angel.
🌺🌸💐
These angels of mine have been a wonderful gift to me and I cherish the time we spend together.

Had a lovely weekend, back at work and missing this place.
A friend is someone who understands your past, believes in your future, and accepts you just the way you are – even if you are getting older. That's what you have always been all these years a wonderful friend. My dear friend @drsmilelexleo so excited to share this special birthday with you. May you continue to have that beautiful spirit of blessing others. Thank you for a fun filled sunday.
This is my option.😃

A very early morning for my cousin Siphu who has brought so much joy into our lives. 
I’ve watched you grow up and build a successful life
And now that your wedding day has finally arrived
I’m wishing you all the best as you begin your marriage. Enroute to a beautiful ceremony. #love #happiness
It's so important to keep hydrated in this unbearable heat. @thickleeyonce now where is that little monkey to side eye my fruit.😃 #dololosummerbody.
After a busy night at the hospital  and an early morning interview, I am happy to be back at Follaine for some relaxation & treatments. Feeling spoilt today.☺️

Today marks exactly 2 years since your passing. Your words & doings remain with us. Your paths so inspiring, so grateful to have lived in your time, your body may not be with us but your soul is always around us.
Tata Mandela you will always be remembered.

Ahhh Dalibhunga Madiba.

It took me a while to respond because I genuinely didn't think she would respond to my post because she is a busy lady. I am so humbled by your kind words & appreciation @gabunion thank you, the warmth and smile you have placed in my heart is immeasurable. Thank for sharing your wedding video with us, it's an authentic reminder of the true essence of love & faith. Have a blessed marriage. Guess we are stuck with each other now☺ please do visit my side of the world. #stayforeverblessed #stayhappy.
I don't normally do this but I thought I might just share how I can't stop watching this lady's #wedding video. The first time I watched I might have shed a young thug tear,😓 but boy she looks so radiant, & happy. The entire video is enough for us to see she is living a romantic comedy fantasy, my favourite part after the vows. Have u seen it? let me know. If you haven't #getaboxoftissuesready #gabrielleunion #gabrielleunionwade
Yesterday @follaine love it.❤️
Loving whites, creams and nudes this summer.
Spending this beautiful afternoon @follaine with my friend @thabangmoalusi. Your mind is magic, every time I walk into your health & beauty boutique I feel completely #refreshed. So proud of your work & what you have done with your health & beauty boutique. #womenleaders #success #womeninbusiness.
