love :: worthy

SELF-LOVE I realised something today: I get over things easily because I've learned to love myself. I am who I am, and it has take me years to be at peace with so many parts of myself, so now that I am, I can't just throw that peace to the ground and crumble. This self-love […]

So I have now officially moved back home for summer after a tremendously stressful yet enjoyable second year.  This year has tested me so much, but my faith is even stronger, new friendships have been made, and I’m happier than I’ve ever been.  It’s going to be a stressful summer with SO much to get […]

Beauty was always a side-line to my love of fashion until I undertook the role of Fashion & Beauty Editor of SCAN. It opened my eyes to talking about something just as, if not even more, artistic than fashion.  Ever since I was little, I always loved doing my eyeshadow and that still continues to […]

I dreaded waking up today to the 10am release of second year results. It didn’t help that I woke up 45 minutes early – I had to fill that time with something other than crippling anxiety. When 10am came, my first demonic thought came: “Why are you even bothering at university Anna”; the second, “You’re […]

It’s quite hard sometimes to be a “milennial” (despite being born in the nineties) and a Christian. It’s challenging. Although as a society, we’re a lot more accepting, we’re also a lot more defensive yet on the attack at the same time. So, adding Christianity to this battle already can make muddling through the early years […]

Hey lovelies, it’s so great to be able to post so much more often (thats a lotta adverbs there) on Kulayrosas.  I’m constantly looking for new material to write about, especially as my posts usually begin as a thought, are written out like a waffle, and then edited into something (relatively) cohesive. *face palm* So, […]

I’m getting a little posting-obsessed over on Instagram, so thought I’d spill out my energy onto the webpage instead. Along with all the photos I’m dying to post. So now that I’m home for summer, I’m trying to keep myself occupied. I spent Monday-Wednesday mostly at home, except yesterday (Wednesday) I had a job interview. […]

Hey lovelies, so tonight I wanted to share with you, as promised on Facebook, my protein bites recipe using two of my Forever favourites. If you didn’t know from my Instagram (@ku_layrosas), I’m a total foodie. Although truth be told, I haven’t actually gone “out” for food in a long while – need to change […]

Walk out and just be humble. God will bless you and give you that knowledge in due time if you’re really willing. -Cindy Owoko Today’s post is going to centre around the above message of hope from Cindy, i.e. her Instagram story preach. It sparked something off in me and I scrambled around my bedroom trying to […]

life :: new beginnings

You could say that with finishing second year, life has slowed down. But in no way is that a reality. Despite summer beginning, and my 20th birthday passing (the Friday just gone Thursday eek!), I still find myself busy. But not “busy” busy, you know that kind of busy when you think you’re busy but […]
