I’m beyond proud of the fact that I not only have 200+ followers on this blog, but that I’ve been awarded a ‘Versatile Blogger’ award, on the same day!

Thank you very much Shayna Stinson for the nomination, you beaut! Check out her blog HERE. #GirlfriendsGuideToBeauty

“Dems da RULES” like Ja Rule:

  • Thank The One who nominated you, providing a link their blog.
  • Share the award on your page.
  • Mention 7 facts about yourself.
  • Choose 5-10 nominees to pass this award on to (with 300 followers or less).
  • Notify your nominees by commenting on their blog.

Fax me dem #FACTS:

1) I’m a Londoner who is a regular at ‘Bird’ Restaurant for it’s very healthy battered chicken and waffles.

2) I tweet like a Bird online. Love a bit of tweeting, sometimes I tweet too much. But, then again, define “too much”? There’s no such thing as too much…

3) I work for Charities and do social and online content for them.

4) My favorite color is… Oh, wait, umm… BLUE!

5) I horseride and used to teach four-year-olds how to ride. Although I don’t own any pets, I’d love to own a horse, a golden retriever and a Russian blue kitten (yes, blue cats are a THING, and no I don’t mean dying a cat blue) one day.

6) I got into blogging by accident, as part of a coursework at Uni. I struggled to come up with an idea and something tangible but pursued technology at first. However, I’ve since switched to Beauty… The rest is history.

7) I want to retire in Australia or Switzerland. Pretty huge difference and distance between the two, but yeah… When I’ve saved up enough money, and got all I need to get out of life and career, you’ll find me there! Not that you’d want to though, right? 😉 *this is a FACT because it’ll happen. I’ll make it happen*

Who do I nominate? (#DidSomeoneSayNOM?! #NOMNOMNOM. #LunchTime #HungryInHungary #Hangry)

I don’t actually know which of you have less than 300 followers or more, and it wouldn’t be fair to only choose 5-10 followers, when I believe all of you that are reading this deserve it… So, if you’re reading this and have got this far, you have won this Versatility Award. You SMASHER, YOU! 💋

Miracles tend to happen when we’re just about to give up…

Unexpected things occur when we’re not expecting them to…

Don’t give up.

Keep believing.

Don’t lose the faith.

I had originally torn a ligament in my thigh (around the part of the hip flexor) and now I’ve only gone and done a cartilage in my knee in too! #FML #WoahIsMii #YouCantTakeMeAnywhere

What’s worse is that both injuries are not in the same leg… As I said, I’d torn the ligament of my right thigh previously and I’ve just found out that I also have torn the cartilage in my left knee.

Last week, I was on bed rest most days because I legitimately couldn’t get up and out of bed… Once I felt like it had healed enough for me to return to work (this week), I went right away. Now though, I’m kind of wishing I didn’t…

At first I thought my knee pain was due to bed rest. I literally hadn’t been up and out of my room for three days so I thought it was taking its toll on my body, making my limbs and joints stiff… But, since getting rushed to hospital this morning because my leg gave way at work, I’ve realised that it’s a lot more serious.

Obviously, for those of you who don’t know, my “Miumba” and exercising has contributed to the tears of my muscles, I assume. Hence why the title of this post is: ‘The Importance of Stretching Correctly’. I say this because I don’t think I was stretching correctly. Either that or I went too far with it… Who knows. Everything in moderation, guys and dolls! Everything in moderation.

So, my message to you is: stretch and stretch correctly. Whether you’re working out or just dancing/moving around, stretch. Stretching of the muscles and body joints is vital.

Another message: if you’re suffering from an injury, don’t rush things. Take your time. Let it heal. Don’t think you can do things normally again when you clearly can’t… Let this be a lesson. Be patient or else you’ll cause yourself a greater injury.

No Miumba for me anymore…

Although the true definition of “perfection” doesn’t exist, you, yourself are perfect… Everything about you makes you perfect to those who appreciate you and know your worth/value.

Never forget that.

Your figure, your face, your eyes, your smile, your personality… It all makes you you, and that’s why you’re loved by the people you’re loved by.

This is my #TuesdayMotivation(al) message to you, The One reading this.

I am just one in an ocean of people who love those of all races, religions, genders, sexualities and backgrounds. Don’t let what’s happening in the World right now (coming from a minority with a loud voice) make you forget that!

Together, we will trump hate, misogyny, homophobia, xenophobia, racism and sexism! Let’s stand tall and be as one against bigots of both great or little power.

Love,

Miamii
