I Just Want To Be Me, Authentically Me

Listen guys, I didn’t want to write a rant post but I’ve decided to write it and let rip because honestly, I’m a little tired of the BS. I’m a straight talker and I’m as honest and as transparent as I can be. I hate to lie to my readers, or put out a persona that is not authentic because to be completely real and upfront with you. Fake seems to be winning out here on these Instagram streets. Yes, you read that right. Being real; for the most part doesn’t get you much engagement, it sure doesn’t get you much likes and its only your most perfectly constructed images and the highlight reel of your life that gets a great reception. If life wasn’t testing enough…

The truth is, with me, what you see is what you get. I’m honest about the entire thing because ultimately I have nothing to really gain from lying. My mum takes my pics, I shoot in the same area for convenience and the fact that I only have a small window of opportunity to shoot looks on a Sunday before I have to head to work on the Monday. I don’t plan my outfits as such and most of the time, map out what I’m wearing while I reason with myself that that extra 5 minutes in bed was necessary. I haven’t been on holiday this year, I’m currently running on empty, sleep deprived and desperate to get on top of my to do list for my brands- both me and Women Who Slay.

I have had to start in business again so as much as I’m proud of my past successes, I by no means see myself as a fully accomplished business woman just yet, I am a beautiful work in progress and everyday I’m getting that more bad-ass and more able than I’ve ever been before.  I am traversing through this thing called life and quite frankly not particularly interested in showing anything else but a true representation of who I AM and the real and relatable journey I am taking.


To be fair, as a result of this, it might that much longer to get the success I want but I’m really not willing to compromise on who I am because although it might not fast-track my path to success, I’m not willing by any means to become someone or something I am not.



I want you to all relate to who I am and know that when you come onto this blog, you are getting a true version of Sasha and I hope you like her as much as I do. 🙂

Sasha Shantel X Love Leggings #LiveInLove

I hadn’t heard of this brand before they reached out to me for a collaboration. But I can honestly say that I was missing out as I have never worn a pair of jeans so comfortable; and I mean NEVER! I practically shot this look then returned home and wore it at home too. That’s the kind of comfortable I am referring to.

Orange Is The Colour

I’ve never ever purchased an orange blazer before. In fact; I don’t really own much orange clothing. But there is something really amazing about this orange blazer. I have your typical black and blue blazers, I also own yellow and green blazers, but nothing beats my new fave. I had already planned my all white ensemble and knew that the blazer would make it a LOOK. But, I honestly was not ready for this.

Stunting In My Green Shein Suit

Don’t I honestly look like a Jazz musician in this suit? lol; but I absolutely love it! I really wanted to try something a LOT different from my norm. Fashion is about pushing boundaries and not always sticking to your comfort zone. This suit couldn’t be further from my comfort zone. A bright green, not tight fitting suit teamed with big black boots. I never felt so free in this easy and effortless look.
