Spirituality Crossroads Experience

In the past couple of weeks I have been going through so emotional turmoil in my life. It has been hard and heavy on my mind and heart to a point where I reached my spirituality crossroads experience, reading the bible and praying every morning and night and to my surprise, I must say as much as I am still going through the emotional changes in my life I am dealing with it much better and my heart and mind they are much lighter.

I cannot say I am saved and now I believe in the unforeseen, I don’t know what happened to my spirituality crossroads, but I found solace during a very difficult time in my life, when I felt like quitting I found the strength to carry. May God is really out there or maybe I have cried to the point of enough is enough life goes on state.

I played three songs on repeat Father can you hear me (with Cheryl Pepsii Riley, Tamela J. Mann, Terrell Carter) from Tyler Perry The Diary of a Mad Black Woman this song moved me the first time I heard it , Whitney Houston’s I look to you and Conqueror by Estelle and The Empire Cast.

Maybe this difficultly phase in my life has encouraged my spirituality, maturity because when I got on my knees and lit that candle to pray I knew that I could not do it by myself, it was bigger than me.

I found comfort in prayer during my spirituality crossroads struggle and I certainly don’t know what the future has in store for me but I have hope for less emotional turmoil…

Have you have experienced your own spirituality crossroads dilemma and how did you overcome it?

Disney World: Magic Kingdom Trip

Disney world magic kingdom
I was really looking forward to visiting Disney World in Florida and this time we decided only to be seen Magic Kingdom we did not go to other parks. I must say it is a mission to reach Disney, when you arrive you take a complimentary transport to the train station and then take the train to Disney its a small trip on its own.

Oh my goodness it was packed like seriously full, every ride there was a huge line, we used the complimentary fast pass, but it was only for 3 things well it was worth it. It is crazy every little girl was wearing Elsa’s dress from Frozen so much that on my way back, I had to watch the Frozen Movie on the plane to see what is the fuss about (I understand now).

Disney World Magic Kingdom Trip was truly an amazing experience we got to see the castle, rode on different rides such as tea cups, enjoyed the peter pan flight, haunted mansion which my daughter hated, also took a boat ride and even saw some street entertainment.My daughter got to take photos with Tinkerbell, Elsa and Anna.

Have you ever been to Disney and what was your favorite part about it?

Legoland Florida Resort

Legoland

When I was planning our trip to Orlando, Florida, USA Legoland Florida Resort was not even an option all I was focused on was seeing the Disney World and Universal Studios. Legoland was kind of a last minute suggestion. I really enjoyed myself, it was not as big a Disney World but we got to see a lot of the place and rode on most rides it was amazing.

Legoland

Legoland

Legoland Florida Resort opened in 2011 and has a spectacular water park which unfortunately when we crossed over they were taking people out of the water because the was a lightening warning in the area. The Water Park looked fun and there were lifeguards visible at every corner.

I am happy because it was not as full as other famous attraction so fast pass was not really necessary. We enjoyed Friends to the Rescue’ Live Stage Show Lots of singing and dancing from the ladies. We also enjoyed the following rides DUPLO® Train, The Grand Carousel double Decker load of fun it was and my daughter enjoyed Royal Joust just to name a few.

I was in awe of the Miniland wow they made up amazing cities in mini leagues like Time Square and Statue of Liberty in New York, I am not a Star Wars Fan but damn that structure was super cool you have to see it to understand and you know that famous red bridge San Francisco bridge they built it too.

From America to Antibiotics

pexels-photo-47441-large

Literally from America to antibiotics we spent nine days in Orlando, Florida in the US, wow they have the most uncomfortable weather the humidity was unbearable indeed. Florida is one clean state no litter on the streets unlike the disgusting streets of Jeppe Street I saw before leaving it was traumatizing.Another thing I did not like they have huge streets and they are hard to cross you wait for the walking man and then the robot starts counting you down from 30 just imagine seriously 🙂 .I like that you can walk with your phone in your hands without worrying that someone will snatch it and you will have to scream Vimba. Other than my likes and dislikes of Orlando, Florida it was pleasantly nice to visit another country and see how they live.

I arrived back home Johannesburg I was so sick, fever I felt like my bones were on fire I went to see the doctor I normally see on Friday he was not there so the guy was checking me and didn’t really give me strong medication just to clear my congested chest, oh boy came Monday, I thought I was fine I was wrong went to my childhood doctor and the x-ray found that I had left lower lobe pneumonia/ chest infection.
I have been on antibiotics since then and happy to say I am slowly gaining my strength the horrific cough is gone and I managed to write this blog post :-).

Feels good to be healthy again, it’s Monday again and I am reporting back to work wishing you a wonderful productive week ahead

Tips for Non Immigrant Visa Application (USA)

Non Immigrant Visa USA

Traveling to countries that need a visa it is a lot of work indeed I found out while we were planning our visit to the United States of America, initially we wanted to travel in December 2015 but I was overwhelmed by the process that I quit the application process because a lot of people love to travel in December .

January came and we decided to try again because I was getting leave at work for the easter weekend and the schools will be closed by that time.

Tips for Non Immigrant Visa Application (USA)

1. For the tourist visa go to https://ceac.state.gov/genniv to fill in the online application each and every family member needs to fill out the form which for me it was two adults and one child. Always double check the information before submitting because once you click submit you cannot amend the application.At the end of the submission you will need to print out the DS160 confirmation which you will need to present at the embassy. You will required to upload the 50cm by 50cm photo, but if it does not meet their requirements don’t worry, you can take the correct ones when you go for the interview.

2. Now its time to book for the visa interview for this you go to https://ais.usvisa-info.com/en-za/niv, here you will choose on which day, date and branch you want to take the interview. They have credit card payment and cash payment options for cash its strictly at the Absa bank. If you pay cash you need to pay first before you can book your appointment. Follow the instructions in order to avoid delay. Print out the instructions after booking the appointment they will have time and date.

3. Now you have your appointment set time to get your documents ready:
– If traveling with children you need the unabridged birth certificate
-If the other parent is not traveling you need the letter of consent from them otherwise you will not go anywhere.
-If the other parent has passed on take a copy of the death certificate with you.
– Take the latest 3months bank statement with you to prove your funds and affordability
– Do Not Book your flight.
– Get a letter of employment if employed and also stating that you have left to travel of days you have chosen on your online application. If you are a business owner take your company registration papers and tax clearance form SARS and just in case proof of address. ( It’s better to be over prepared than under prepared)
– Book accommodation I used www.booking.com the site offers pay later hotels you only pay when you stay and they have free cancellation. You will receive confirmation print it and take it with you.
– Take your DS160 form and two photos with you if you did their size specifications best place to take them its Kodak they are professional.
– The main purpose of the interview is to prove that you will return to your home country after the holiday or visit to the USA so if you have property better take the title deed with you.

For the interview be calm, answer honestly and smile

If they visa is approved you get 10 years tourist visa now you can complete your trip planning and go and tour where you choose. Hope my tips for the non immigrant visa application for USA are helpful.

My Skin Health Journey with Nimue

nimue

I began my skin health journey with Nimue about 22 days ago when I received some products to test from Rubybox and it has been an amazing journey and my skin has improved so much that I love what I see in the mirror.

My skin was classification was Interactive Skin according to their skin diagnostic tool. Here is the definition of my skin type according to the Nimue App: An interactive skin classification shows symptoms of hypersensitivity, redness and irritation often due to stressful lifestyle and over treated skin, poor health or over the counter medication which can compromise our skins natural protective barrier. I am often stressed and yep, I am guilty of not eating healthy enough, but I am not a medication fan though.

These are the products were prescribed to me:

Cleansing Gel Lite- this gel balances sebum production without drying the epidermis while removing traces of make-up and impurities.

My Review: this gel takes gentle to the next level; it really feels so good on the skin as well as soothes the skin.

Conditioner Lite- It has antibacterial and anti- inflammatory benefits and it also hydrates and soothes the skin in the process.

My Review: I liked the cooling effect it has on the skin when you apply it, but I struggled with using the nozzle as it was hard to spray it on the cotton wool that I had to remove the cap to use it.

Moisturizer Lite- This moisturizer is on double duty because it works as a day and night cream. Improves the skin texture, hydrates and balances oil production.

My Review: wow, I loved how my t-zone stayed matte

throughout the day without getting oily and it also hydrated the dry part of my skin too. Felt so good on the skin when I applied.

Exfoliating Enzyme- contains papaya and pineapple enzymes, which gently removes dead skin cells while promoting renewal.

My Review: I don’t exfoliate because it leaves my skin feeling dried out, but this product felt like hydrating instead of exfoliating it did not irritate my skin. It is the gentlest Exfoliator I have ever used.

Professional SPF 40: It protects the skin from UVA and UVB rays. My Review: I found the product a little thick when applying it, but it evened out on the skin quite beautifully and easily. This is a professional product which means I cannot buy it.

I loved using the products the packaging is clean and elegant. The products were skin friendly and I would use the SPF 40 for beach days because it’s a bit heavy to use on a daily basis.

Nimue

I am yet to book for the treatment at the salon with the voucher that I received that will be in an entire different post.

Have you ever used Nimue Products and what is your take on them?
