Hey guys!!! I thought of an end of the year obsession list!! And I’m so excited to talk about it that my mind is not allowing me to get to a cool intro! So let’s just dive on in!!!
So this are the application that probably get a heavy Jack2y usage! My phone and laptop has probably crushed, if that’s the right term to use, because of this apps. No.1 app is YouTube!!! To be honest, I think YouTube in a way made me a better person. Why so? Well I met Lilly Singh on YouTube, I learned how to take care of my hair on YouTube, I find new cool exciting content on YouTube that make me smile. You can get anything on YouTube honestly. It’s like Google at this point. Literally a revolution! The second is Instagram! But these days I have been using it on a minimum. This because I tend to get quickly stalkerish, especially when I meet a new person on Instagram. I go way deep, even to their 2014 pics. Yikes! The next one is Twitter! They say Twitter is for the cool kids but in my head Twitter is like a standard. People announce things on Twitter, people connect on Twitter, people end up making friendships on Twitter and people can get inspired on Twitter. Now obviously there is a negative space for each of this apps, but I believe you have the power to choose what you expose yourself to. If you are able to interact with these apps on a daily then you probably can pick and choose what you want to see.
My recent obsession is Headspace Sharon Mundia recently mentioned this in an Our Two Cents video I believe and you guys need to check it out if you have not already. It’s a meditation app and even if you have never meditated, it takes you nice and slowly into it. I have only used it for a couple of days and I feel happier. I feel that it is not like those ones that tell you to silence your mind and then you start thinking about how to do that the you drift away even further. This one genuinely lets those thoughts come alive. It makes you aware of the thoughts and that might sound odd but it makes you mindful about what you think about and the kind of energy you give off into the world. And you know I love me some positive vibes!!! So I’m all for it!
You guys will not believe me when I tell you but I am so in love with white oats with chia seeds, flax seeds and grapes. It’s the best! And I have it for breakfast. It is so filling and oh so tasty. I really like it!
I am sure you know by now that I am a heavy tea drinker and if you did not know that, Hello, my name is Jack2y and I have an unhealthy obsession with tea. Now that we have that out of the way, my second most favourite drink is water! Not really from a healthy stand point because I am no fitness, health guru. It’s just that nothing refreshes me more than a good glass or bottle of water, depending on how thirsty I am at the time. I love how it just flows and it could be warm or cold and I can find it almost everywhere.
So this year I have not read as much as I wanted to but my book of the year is How to be a Bawse a guide to conquering life by Lilly Singh! If you haven’t read it, please go and get it, it is a life changer on how much potential we have inside us! I read it a while back but it sits on my bedside because every now and then I pick it up to read a chapter and that motivates in a big way!
What I am currently reading is Hollywood Commandments by Devon Franklin and Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur.
Oh my!!! So many good songs and albums have come out this year. So if I dive into them, we’ll be here for a long time. So I will say On and On by Cartoon. I first heard it in an Alex Wassabi video, the one I posted on my previous blog post. And I loved it so much!! Now it is on repeat and I don’t know why but at this particular moment in time, I have been into that kind of music.
Now here’s where we get a little spicy! I love these group of people so much and you will find them on my YouTube playlist and I will always stop scrolling and double tapping their pics on instagram or retweeting their tweets and likes here and there. There is only one guy on the list, hehe….okay 2 guys on the list. I think it’s because I feel that I relate to the ladies more than the guys. So first and foremost, obviously you guys know I have an unhealthy in my obsession with Lilly Singh. I just love her so much!!
Then Demi Lovato who has allowed us to follow her career and enter into her world and learn from her mistakes and her drive to be better and to do better and also to slay!!!
Joanna Kinuthia is another one. She is a Kenyan YouTuber and she always gives off a vibe of positivity and improving always, which I’m 100% for!!
Sharon Mundia and Susan Wong have a channel called Our 2 Cents! Check it out if you haven’t already! I just love how positive they are and just good vibes and healthy tips. Sharon also has another channel called This Is Ess and yaaaassss you know I’m here for it!!
Alex Wassabi is hot first of all. And not only hot as in his physical attributes but also how he cares about his fans, his business, his family, his girlfriend and also the dogs!!! I love animals so when I see a guy doing that, yaaasss!!! And obviously, he is a positive human making a change in many people’s lives! And yes I am obsessed with his laugh, wait what? Who said that?
Lauren DIY QUEEN! Who doesn’t know Laurdiy! If you need your craft fix then Lauren will hook you up!! I also love her because she is sooo full of colour and light beams!! Ah obsessed!!
The final one is not a youtuber, it is Nick Ndeda. I think he is a cool human and a fantastic actor. He works very hard on his craft and did not give up on it!! I watched him on shuga and I cried like it was real and he was my brother. And also he owns a cat! Yeeeey!
I am in love the Girl Love Initiative. It is something that I never thought of before and it really opened my eyes to how as women we are so cruel to each other. You can check out their website for so much more info and most importantly practice a little bit more of care and support to our females. This goes for both boys and girls.
For movies nothing really because I know only few and have seen fewer so that would be a mess. One final thing, I am in looove with natural products like shea butter and coconut oil. Honestly it feels fantastic on my hair and skin!!
So I realise this is almost an entire book! The excitement was too real! Thank you for stopping by and have a great day!
I wish you nothing but positive vibes, love and light! Thanks for reading and have a good one!
