Introduction!

Hello and welcome to lifesfinewhine! My name is Pooja. I’m Kenyan but currently living in Canada. I am studying history and sociology at university at the moment. I love writing, reading, music and more! Thank you for stopping by little corner of the Internet! This blog includes a majority of lifestyle, travel, mental health, beauty, blogging advice, six word stories, poetry and inspirational posts along with other occassional posts.

Travel is something I’m super passionate about! Whenever I’m on vacation from university I try to take some trips- they may sometimes just be me discovering new things in the same city but I still love it. I love exploring the outdoors (even when the weather gets crazy in Canada…) and seeing something new even when I don’t have a specific destination in mind! To view the travel posts click here.

I love writing lifestyle blogs because over time the blogging community and my readers/followers have kind of become like family. That’s why I want to share what’s going on with me and what I’m up to at the moment with them. I love reading the comments I get on these posts and sharing my thoughts with them.

Mental health is something that is very important to me. I suffer from anxiety and depression and I chose to write about my experiences with having an anxiety disorder, anxiety symptoms and the anxiety treatment/anxiety medication I’ve tried. I also like to share what helps me out with my mental health in the hopes that it may help others as well as reduce the stigma around mental health. If you or someone you love are suffering from mental health problems please seek counselling/therapy. To view mental health posts click here.

I have always loved makeup and fashion- seriously I used to put makeup and dress up my dolls and totally ruined their faces because of the makeup- and I love writing about makeup and fashion! I do reviews for makeup products, try out the best/top products as well as drugstore/affordable products and I also write about outfits I love, which outfits I’ve worn on my travel posts and more.

Since my blog started growing quite fast over the last three or four years I get asked quite often about how to get more followers and how to get more traffic. That’s why I decided to start an entire section with blogging advice for bloggers looking for grow their following, traffic or make money off their blog. For blogging advice click here.

When I first started blogging I saw some bloggers writing six word stories and was very intrigued by the concept of a six word story. I think it’s absolutely fascinating how you can write an entire story in just six words and I have therefore been doing six word stories ever since. To view six word story posts click here.Β 

Blogging actually reminded me of how much I loved writing poetry and earlier on during the first year or so of blogging a large number of my posts were poetry. I don’t write poetry as often now but I still try to as much as I can or whenever I feel inspired. To view poetry posts click here.

Inspirational or motivational quotes/images posts are one of my favourite types of posts to write. I think it’s important for us to try to spread positivity in a world that sometimes seems to be filled with a lot of negativity. I try to post some positive/inspirational/motivational quotes at least once a week just to lighten the mood a bit and help uplift everyone reading. To view inspirational posts click here.Β

  1. Hey, if you’re a fan of psychology (and movies) I’d recommend the Pop Culture Case Studies podcast. This psychologist will discuss a psych topic (fight-or-flight, isolation, empathy, etc.) and will feature a movie that acts as an exemplar for his topic.

    It’s an excellent time.

    (I was not paid to promote his show… I’m just a fanboy.)

  3. Ah, I’m loving your blogs, especially the 6-word stories!!! It’s interesting how other people have different understandings of it. I also love that your blog is an all-in-one! It inspires me to not push myself on sticking to a specific niche. πŸ˜…

    1. Thank you so much!! I love that about the six word stories- everyone has their own interpretation of it. Don’t confine yourself to just one niche- write about whatever you want!
