KENNYSBOOKCLUB: You are a Badass!


Welcome to the July edition of the Kennysbookclub! For people reading my blog for the first time, kennysbookclub is a monthly post on kennysdiary where I review a book we read together for that month.

This month’s choice of book is “YOU ARE A BADASS” by Jen Sincero.

First of all, based on personal opinion, I will rate this book a 10 out of 10.

You are a badass, is a self help book for people who are desperately willing to positively change there lives.

Jen has used this book to discuss everything that has to do with loving yourself and your insecurities. As you all know, I wrote a post about insecurities and how to deal with it. But I felt like I still needed more knowledge on that aspect, which was one of the reason why I decided to read this book.

This book Will help you figure out more about yourself and your attitude towards things and life in general. Also, if you are trying to gain or improve your self confidence, I will totally recommend you read this book.

You are a badass will help you understand the importance of your environment and why you should surround yourself with people who think the way you think. On my next blog post, I will be discussing this in more details as this page of the book made me make a very crucial decision.

Although, this book has been written in a way that it seems the writer is encouraging self entitlements and self-absorption, but you have to read deeper to understand that Jen is not trying to encourage this things. More like she is trying too…… well, you will have to go purchase the Book to figure the answer to that out yourself.

Jen wrote this book In such a way that you wouldn’t want to stop reading It. Matter of fact, I will definitely be reading this book again and again and again.

OUTFIT: Black and white stripes

Getting dressed and deciding on what to wear can either be the easiest or most challenging thing to do.

It is easy to wake up, put on an outfit and go about your day. In another, deciding on how you want to present yourself to the world with your outfit can be difficult.

For my look today, I have decided to go for a more classic sophisticated look. In other to achieve this, I decided to wear a white and black stripe trousers because it can be paired with any solid colour.

I have chosen to pair this trouser with a solid black top with no prints or pattern in other to avoid looking to flashy. I have also chosen to complete this look with a pair of black heels and a black clutch for a more soothing calm look.

I’m on the tall side, and trust me when I say finding the perfect trousers with a perfect length is the hardest thing. Therefore, Majority of my outfits are from the tall section to allow perfect fitting.

This outfit, I will wear to a dinner, business Trip, girls night out or maybe even to the Church.!

All outfit worn in this post were purchased ages ago and I can not guarantee it will still be available for purchase.

Outfit details:

Top – New look

Trousers – ASOS

Heels – Boohoo

UPDATE: My natural hair journey!.

I started embracing my natural hair in 2017 after deciding to transit from a relaxed hair to a natural hair. Since then, I’ve promised myself to never get a relaxer again.

Although, maintaining my hair has been a very difficult one. The bigger my natural hair gets the harder it is to maintain.

The most empowering part of my natural hair journey is that It makes me reconnect with my root and who I really am. It also gives me the opportunity to help other black women embrace there natural hair textures.

It’s hard for me to pick which natural hair product is my favourite because I love trying new products but If I’m to pick, I will say one of the best product I’ve used is the Cantu Shea butter. It keeps my hair moisturised and soft for a long time.

One of the most magical thing about natural hair for me is shrinkage. Every time I wash my hair and it shrinks, it just makes me feel like I’ve got some kind of superpower 😊 like how can my hair go from big and poofy to small and curly? I guess it’s the BLACK GIRL MAGIC!

Finally, One of the most effective way I’ve been able to maintain my natural hair is by making sure I do not leave it out for too long. After washing, I have it weaved immediately in other to prevent breakage and for me the longer I have my natural hair out the more painful it gets when combing it.

Oh! lets not even talk about how many combs I’ve broken since I went natural 😢 that’s gonna be in another post. For now, below is the link to my previous post on how i do not enjoy my natural hair journey.
