Fierce,

In life, you need to teach the world who you are. Most especially now as we enter a new era, you need to fight back in whatever life throws at you. Sometimes, you won’t get the credit you feel like you deserve. Sometimes, you’re going to feel like all the hard work you’ve been putting into a project has been a waste because nobody has been around to pat you on the back or remind you what a good job you’ve been doing.

Sometimes, your confidence is going to crash. Sometimes, you’re going to doubt your own abilities. Sometimes, you’re going to flirt with the idea of giving up.

It doesn’t matter as long as your values and beliefs are intact and strong. You don’t need validation from anyone else to feel proud of yourself. ( You should be proud of every scar, battles, and accomplishments) Stop waiting around for other people to realize your value and start rewarding yourself. When you accomplish one of your goals, reward yourself with a bottle of wine or freshly baked cookies or your favorite latte from Starbucks. Make sure that, even if the rest of the world can’t see what a good job you’ve been doing, you recognize it yourself.

You have to stay passionate, stay motivated, stay inspired, stay strong.

You have to remind yourself you can do this.

Do it for yourself! Stay Fierce!

Fierce,

Have you ever been to a new place that makes your soul feel so alive yet so calm at the same time?

Just a few days ago I went on a very special trip to the Adjara Region in Batumi, Georgia to explore the city and understand their rich culture.

I was truly amazed by what I saw as it immediately gave me a cool Californian vibe with its tall pine trees along the streets and the soothing breeze from the Black Sea beach. And the waves that danced and lingered past my ears while I would be strolling outside my hotel near the Black Sea Beach.

Batumi made my heart so happy and relaxed with the heartwarming hospitality of the Georgian people and their kindness truly exceeded my expectations. Batumi is a small city but there are so many things to discover and one of the things I enjoyed the most was the traditional Georgian Food and the Georgian dance.

I am at a loss for words when I begin to describe the beauty of Adjara, as I walked and explored the city I learned a lot from the Georgian people. Their genuine kindness comes from within and the way they make everyone who visits their city, you would truly feel like a local.

The Sheraton Batumi hosted my stay, while I was in Batumi and the staff was very competent as they welcomed I and my 5 suitcases with a big smile!

As I started my first day, I changed my look instantly into a purple and blue colour combination, pairing it with my Vikele Bag.

My Georgian Local buddy Kate @katerinovsky took me on a tour around the city and we had lunch at The Bern Restaurant. She ordered a special Georgian Dish for me and Kinkhali which was part of the course! Khinkali is my most favourite Georgian food ever. And I always order it whenever I’m in Tbilisi, Georgia.

I requested her to treat me like a local and not as a visitor since I wanted to learn more about their culture and feel that local vibe that would have an authentic approach.

Kate made sure that I was happy, safe and would enjoy the whole trip and she was so welcoming towards me with her kindness which made my trip even more special.

As the days passed by, I learned alot about Adjara and its hidden treasures. I got to understand on a much deeper level the kind of people that inhabit the city.

They have many natural resources, beautiful mountains, a rich culture, authentic and homemade Georgian cuisine that can compete on any international level.

This trip was a very spontaneous one and Mikheil the Head Of International Tourism Promotion Office of Adjara made sure that my trip would not change my perspective about Georgian Culture and Adjara. But that this trip would help me experience the different facets to Georgia that can make it compete on an international level when it comes to hospitality, culture, safety and a place which you can call home away from home.

This trip would not have been possible without their undying support and love for me, this is my way of showcasing my love, respect, and appreciation not just to Adjara but to Georgia as a country. Every time I’ve visited Georgia it’s always given me happiness but then when I have to leave, it’s always with a heavy heart.

I always learn something new from people and the way they welcome a tourist is something I really love about them so much. 

Visit Adjara, Batumi and the rest of Georgia as well and you will understand why I feel the love I do for this place and the Georgian people.

Thank you to the Tourism Board and all the Georgian people for slaying with me! You made me the fiercest one in your city!

The Fierce City of Adjara! SLAY!!!

Fierce,

There are always a few certain things I look for in a hotel as I tend to travel very frequently. Of course, being visually pleasing and on point are two of my main choices! Yet, I always take into consideration the level of comfort, safety, and relaxation as due to my busy schedule, I need to get my beauty sleep.

So very recently I went to Adjara Batumi in Georgia and I stayed at The Sheraton Hotel Batumi.

The hotel has a very old Spanish era kind of building, in white, which is located near the Black Sea Beach.

From a fashion-oriented individuals perspective, I always look for a cozy bed and a good view and I must say, Sheraton Batumi never failed to provide me with that service. And more so, beyond my expectations.

I would wake up very happy in a cozy bed with a beautiful view overlooking the black sea. And then I would wait to watch the sunset in the afternoon as I’d rest from my slay earlier.

Staying in a place that’s away from home often gives me a little bit of anxiety as I need to take into consideration the safety of the place, the services they offer and also how I will feel during my stay.

Another thing that I am always very particular about in the luxury services that a hotel provides is an in-house spa. And at The Sheraton Batumi, I experienced the top-notch services provided at their Spa. I tried the Deep Tissue Massage and Aromatherapy Facial, I can safely say that the Georgian’s can compete with the techniques of the Thai people when it comes to massages.

It’s a new discovery for me as I experienced the service at the hotel and the packages they offer. The quality of the hospitality and the regular warm greetings of the staff always gave me a very good feeling.

I feel that this hotel deserves a review not just by what they offered me but also for the level of comfort I felt after this wonderful experience. And that is something I will always remember.

Georgian people treated me with respect and honor, which I am highly grateful for. The fact that they let me experience everything just like a local and yet let me explore their city as a tourist is something that I will highly recommend to all of you.

In Georgia, you will not only feel how it feels to be a local but they will also treat you like a local with respect and attention.

To every one of you slaying with me, make sure to book your stay at The Sheraton Batumi as they will never fail to provide you with quality service, the best that Ajara has to offer during your stay. Stay Fierce!

Fierce,

Be it career, love, or having your own family, it is often that the waiting game is what makes us lose focus and be demotivated. You see, it’s not always about winning or getting what you wanted when you want it. It’s about keeping your faith and waiting for God’s perfect timing. It’s about getting yourself ready for that breakthrough that’s much bigger than you and the people around you can ever imagine.

Life can be hard at times but sometimes waiting is the only option that you have and while waiting, you have to work harder better than anyone else around you. It’s all about finding the right balance in life and finding what truly makes you happy as a person. The journey will never be easy but it is going to be worth it.

It will never be easy but it surely something that will make you stronger, fiercer and better you. Stay as you are and never let anyone dull your shine. That is the beauty of life as you grow older, you become wiser and better through time and challenges.

 

Stay Fierce!
