Hey, its Nollie turns TWO!

Two years ago I would have never thought that this blog would have grown as much as it has. I’m so thankful for this blog, the people I have been able to reach and talk to and learn so much from. I’m thankful for every life experience that has happened to me in these past […]

Tribute to my late Grandfather.

I never got to meet my late Grandfather until his death bed. I sobbed like a baby at the hospital as I grieved a man I had imagined for so long right in front of me living his last hours. He and my Grandmother had been separated for many years and reunited in his hospital […]

What I’m listening to..

I LOVE this album! I don’t even know what made me decide to give it a chance but I’m glad I did. Meghan Trainor is magic. She is vulnerable, she is real, she loves to love, she’s been hurt but she’s living honestly and owning her truth through her music. My favourites are ‘Watch me […]
