The Strategy

Change the way you view money

Money needs to flow and wherever it lands it needs to arrive in large quantities.

To stop living from pay cheque to pay cheque, you need to live on less than what you earn.

§ You don’t need to wait until you have thousands to start investing, start where you are and increase as…

Words of love and desire

Author’s own

It’s in the way he looks at me, the way he caresses my skin and kisses my both sets of lips

I wasn’t meant to be there
But there was a bet, and I cared
Tick tock, went the clock; ready to leave
Until I looked across the room, and couldn’t believe
What my eyes saw, and how it made my pearl swell

From the moment I laid my eyes on him, I knew
He was the one I longed for, the one to make me melt
Here I was, unable to articulate how I felt
For a man, who suddenly coloured my…


When coming “home” turns into go back to your country. I guess abuse and racism don’t end, they are just muffled for a few seconds until certain humans are let loose.

It was a great game, 2 brilliant teams putting their best foot forward.

The country went wild, in a good way, numerous posted “it’s coming home” and great messages about the players.

For any outsider you would think this is a great discrimination free country, I mean we must have come a long way, for the focus to be solely on supporting the chosen players. It was great, until it wasn’t. I guess we are family until we aren’t.

The game had good moments and some “oh man” moments, I wouldn’t call them bad, while not a footie lover it…


Words of love and desire, for my one and only

Author’s own — a love like no other

How lucky am I, to live a life filled with laughter, love, heart-warming experiences and have a companion that truly feels was custom made for me

If you believe in women coming from a man’s rib, then he has his rib me

How lucky is he, that the day the higher powers scheduled for him to meet his life companion, I walked in to the room he was in

How lucky am I, that when he looked across the room, there I was, listening to our life’s melody, nobody else…

Saving without major sacrifices (1)

With the aim of reducing expenses, maximising investments and taking control of your life while becoming financially independent; what do you do when your beauty regime is one of your big expenses?

Author’s own — another delivery?

FIRE for those who haven’t read the “Your Money or Your life” by Vicki Robin it stands for ‘Financial Independence, Retire Early’ and it’s a movement. While this is not a review on the book, I will point out that it talks about 9 indispensable but not so emotionally simple steps, an individual must take in order to open the financial independence door.

Do I recommend the book? Yes. Will I try out the steps I haven’t ticked off before? Absolutely! Will I cry? Without a doubt.

To save and invest more, sacrifices are required.

Earlier this year I took a dive into the world of stocks and shares. My aim? Well, I would like to have another source of income and become a millionaire.

Disclaimer: for financial advice finding a financial expert is key!

I am not an expert, but I am slowly turning into an avid trader, eager to make mistakes and hopefully learn. For this reason, after taking my first dive and purchasing ULVR and LGEN shares, I went back for more and a few others.

What are shares?

When you acquire a share, you are acquiring a percentage in a company or of an asset. Therefore, a share is a proportion of an investment.

When you hold shares, you become a shareholder.

Originally, the plan was to only have 4 companies…

A chat with Li: TRY BEFORE YOU BUY

When you try first, your decision is backed by actual experience, save your money and spend with purpose.

Autor’s own — the SAMPLE of the samples

I recently started shopping at SPACENK, I have known the store/ brand for a handful of years as I used to work directly opposite one of their stores in Oxford Circus. I used to love checking out their products but thought that skin care was something only my Mother needed to worry about. Little did I know about the power of skin care, until I came across Tata Harper and wanted to try out their ‘Daily Essentials by Tata Harper’ set and couldn’t find it anywhere.

It was out of stock everywhere I checked, until I clicked on the SPACENK…

Changing the world one child at the time

What you teach them, they will multiply; hence it’s important to think before you speak. Plus most adults are already rotten.

Watching my nephew grow has changed my way of thinking, has made me think of events which created doubt, insecurity and made me uncomfortable in more ways than one. Depending on your perception, and on own experiences, you may be extra careful around children. Swearing isn’t the only thing you shouldn’t be doing, while children do learn and copy quicker from bad behaviour, there are other seeds you can plant in their little minds which can have a negative impact that lasts a lifetime.

Each little heart and mind, is a new opportunity to make the world a better place…


Thinking of all the things I can’t live without, in this first world problem filled life

Author’s own

Have you every stopped to wonder, how many things you throw
Without considering that many don’t even have access to scraps
If there’s only a little left, what’s the point in keeping you may ask
But here I come to you, with a little life changing task

If there’s one thing I can take from the last lock down, and confirm that I can’t live without, is hand cream and that is solely based on the level of my hand cream consumption.

After reading a book on the importance of keeping track of ones expenditures, I decided to count everything…


I believe in love, and I believe in marriage.

Author’s own – shopping snapshot

Despite divorce rates being high, it has been estimated that due to the pandemic there has been a spike, with percentages like the 26.2% in Portugal and 42% in U.K. (please don’t rely on this data, I found it on random websites at midnight, even used the divorce mag), then there’s the Maldives, on the Guinness World Records as the highest divorce rate percentage in the world, it can be quite daunting for many in or out of love. Want unsolicited advice? Don’t get married in the Maldives (kidding).

Either way, I still believe that two can choose each other…
