Overcome

*Queue Love & Hate by Michael Kiwanuka* To overcome means to deal with your fears. My mind has been overwhelmed with many thoughts lately. I’m not present in conversations because I’m battling with my inner voice. A voice that has taken the shape of a demon. Self doubt is constantly sneaking up on me. Questioning every…

Reflection

For the first time in a long time I sat down and really thought about my content. Things such as why I write. What purpose does it serve? Do I want to pursue it further? So far my content has been an organised mess. My problem has been not being able to find a niche,…

Life.

While there are people fighting to stay alive, there are others willing to take it away in an instant. When did it become so easy? Life is precious. I have never thought about it or said it in a way I really meant until I witnessed a life leave us in front of our very…

Be You | my perfect imperfections

I’ve had so many insecurities and it always felt easier to deal with it in silence. My insecurities are merely what I see to be unattractive about myself. Perspective – this word has repeatedly sneaked up on me to remind me that those moments where we are in relation to someone else can be a…

Be You | Where are you from? 🇱🇰🇩🇪🇬🇧

“Where are you from?” There are so many ways I could answer that question. I could tell you I’m Sri Lankan because I’m the product of two Sri Lankan parents. I may not have lived in the country to claim it as my own but it’s part of my upbringing, it’s my ancestry, it’s the…

Be You | It’s my Birthday!!!

I wanted my first blog post of this year to be something special and I couldn’t think of anything better than a special birthday post along with mini resolutions in celebration of hitting quarter of a century… Yes I am 25 today! (or I will be when this goes up) There’s a lot I wanted…

Be You | 2017 – The year we rise from our Ashes

2016 has been… an interesting year. I don’t want to dwell on the negatives for too long because that would defeat the purpose of rising from the ashes (or burns) the events of 2016 has left me with. I won’t blame the year for anything that has happened, it just happened to be a series of unfortunate…

The Tamil Beauty Community

Over this year I have connected with so many wonderful people, through blogging and youtube but I always felt like there is so many more people to discover! Although we have this platform to create, write and share a lot of it just disappears. That’s why I created a Community page for newbies (and long existing)…

Be You | Life lessons.

I’ve had a tough year so far and am at utter loss with myself but I know it’s just the beginning of a beautiful struggle. I started writing as a form of outlet, but because my brain thinks faster than I can type some thoughts just slip away, so instead I started recording myself speak….

That Initial Vibe

You meet someone, anyone, for the first time. Have you ever felt like, you know you would instantly get along with that person? And just like your gut told you, you hit it off. Whilst it’s all well and good when you are vibing off each other when it’s right. Our intuitions also tell us when…

4 Reasons Why Asking for Help Makes You a Winner

It takes a strong person to admit you need help. – Too often we believe that we create vulnerability when we ask someone for help or believe that we are portraying signs of weakness. Have you ever considered that asking for help shows that you want to learn more? You just want to build a…

Getting a Tattoo – my experience, parents and aftercare

Tattoos have been a controversial topic amongst Tamils. It’s somewhat of a marmite choice across all cultures. You either want one or you don’t, the reasons vary. Regardless, most parents disapprove of it (full stop) unless you are that parent, who once was a child who wanted a tattoo. My mum always called me a “punk”…
