Popsy Chic Blog turns 1 – Dream Big

Birthdays and acheivements are always a time to celebrate and today the Popsy Chic blog turns 1. As I write this article, I am sitting in Cape Town, thinking of how much encouragement I needed to start the Popsy Chic Blog, how brave I was to put myself out there, how I watched countless number of Youtube videos on how to design the theme and code the backend of the site.  But I did it (high five), the Popsy Chic Blog is now turning 1! Inspiration In case you were wondering, blogging has always been something I contemplated.  Like many things in life, I always put off the idea.  In 2016, I set myself two goals.  The first was make the blog happen and the second […]

Why I Blog? Popsy Chic Blog

It has been almost a year since I started my blog.  Ever so often I get asked, Why I Blog? or get told “you never strike me as the writing type”.  After all, I don’t get paid to blog, I have a full time job (which sometimes feels like two jobs in one) and so why do I blog? Blogging for me, is about sharing.  There are certain things in this world that are free and if you use them effectively, you can help make this world a better place.  Sharing and inspiring are two things that are very important to me. It is about making a difference.  To share and to inspire cannot be quantified, it is not tangible, but it can be a game […]

Tash Runs – My Running Journey

Tash Runs - My running journey

This morning when I went for a run, I thought that it would be a good idea to share with you, my running journey and hopefully inspire you to get out there and give it a try.  I then thought it would be good to start a series within the blog dedicated to running.  As you probably figured out and if you read my about page, most call me Tash, therefore I decided to call the articles dedicated to running”Tash Runs”.  This marks the first article in the Tash Runs series. How did I make the start? I started running regularly in January 2015. I joined the local Parkrun in Lonehill.  What I enjoyed about starting out like this is that you run with many […]

Reflections of 2016 – Lets Log Off, Shut Down..

Reflections of 2016 It is that time of the year where we spend time with loved ones and we reflect on the months that we left behind, the reflections of 2016, I call it. While the end of the year brings about hope for a new beginning in the new year and many of us tend to reflect more at this time, I often find that we forget to reflect throughout the year. We forget to have daily gratitude for the people, the opportunities and all the experiences all year around.  We forget that difficulties are also major reflection points. Whilst it is also good to look back at this point in the year and place into perspective the year that has passed, I believe […]
