So its been a minute since I even visited my own blog, let alone thought about writing. Are blogs even still a thing these days with Instagram stories and the new IGTV, snapchat (which is slowly on its way out, dare I say)? But anyway, I’ve decided to revive mine again. Still figuring out the direction I want this blog to go..so please let me know in the comment section what you would like to see from me.
One of my most recent posts on Instagram I talked about balancing motherhood and womanhood. To the women who are able to balance the two perfectly, hats off to you, how do you do it?!! I wouldn’t say I am struggling to balance the two but it is quite the challenge. I know I am not the only one who suffers from mom guilt. My beautiful son is now 1 and I am so proud of the little human he is becoming. He has such a gentle, loving spirit, how did I get so lucky. I will always be a mother first, which is definitely why my youtube channel and blog have kind of slowed down if not just stopped *covers face*. Now that he is a little older, I feel I can start to re-discover the other parts of Sonia. Life is all about evolving, growing and continuously elevating, this is something really want to take seriously going forward. The honour of being a mother has given me a new sense of purpose and drive because it’s no longer about what I want but creating a legacy for my son.
I’d love to bring you along, as I begin this “eat, pray, love” journey I am embarking. I’m looking forward to getting my ‘sexy back’ and just becoming the best woman I am destined to be. I just ordered the book Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert, so lets see how this goes. 🙂
I found this quote online from the book and thought it’d be the perfect way to sign out.
“Happiness is the consequence of personal effort. You fight for it, strive for it, insist upon it, and sometimes even travel around the world looking for it. You have to participate relentlessly in the manifestations of your own blessings. And once you have achieved a state of happiness, you must never become layabout maintaining it. You must make a mighty effort to keep swimming upward into that happiness forever, to stay afloat on top of it.”
Haven’t posted on my blog for too long but one of my goals for 2018 is to be more regular with my posts. But I’ve been working on something special that I am excited to be sharing with you! I’ve always loved making my own products ranging from face oils, body oils and body butters (click to watch tutorial). Now that I have my little prince it was inevitable if not expected that I make something for his delicate skin. I used only the best and organic ingredients to nourish, protect and hydrate his skin because a baby’s skin is delicate and sensitive so it’s important to be conscious about what you put on their skin.
Unrefined Shea Butter has the ability to soothe, hydrate and balance the skin. It is the perfect moisturiser for dry skin and eczema
Coconut Oil is a natural antibacterial barrier and keeps the skin soft and nourished.
Aloe Butter contains all the key properties of Aloe Vera, skin soothing and restoring with rapid re hydration properties to quickly hydrate and moisturise the skin.
Beeswax provides protection against irritants while still allowing the skin to breathe. It also provides anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antiviral benefits making it helpful in treating skin irritation.
Vitamin E Oil heals and protects the skin
French Lavender Essential Oil is calming and soothing especially when applied as part of your baby’s bedtime routine. This essential oil is safe to use on babies from 3 months.

There are so many eyebrow tools in the market so when I received the YSL brow products I was quite curious to see how good they were…and I was really impressed with the results. I’m a fan of natural looking makeup and that’s exactly what I got. The products are buildable so you can achieve the right look and intensity you want. Watch my tutorial to see how I currently achieve my natural looking eyebrows!
So I’ve come up with 3 more fun and cute head wrap styles. I actually had fun creating these looks and they’re a perfect statement for any outfit. This time I collaborated with my sister Kim and she also created 3 looks so make sure you head over to Kim’s Channel to see more!
I don’t wear makeup everyday and since having my son that has gone down even more! but on the rare occasion this is definitely my go to makeup look. Especially now we’re heading to summer this look is perfect because it allows my skin to breathe. If you’re looking for an effortless, minimum time makeup look then this is for you!
