Have you ever met someone who felt like the one but for some reason things didn’t work out between you guys? You probably started asking yourself questions like: ‘Why is this happening to me?’ Girl, I’ve been there and it wasn’t nice at all… Lots of tears were shed and of course, hearts were broken… But I always wondered… If you’re convinced that he’s your Mr. Right, don’t you think that your situation would’ve allowed you guys to be together? And when you say Mr. Right, are you just referring to his personality or to him as a whole and everything around him? A lot of women are very quick to say ‘He’s the one!’ But is he really though? It Takes TWO To TANGO! There are a lot of Perfect Guy, Wrong Time scenarios. From your bae moving to a different country to your bae having a child with someone else. Heck, he…

Hooray, A Cup of CynTea blog is one year old today! I just want to thank everyone who has supported myself and the blog throughout the past year by liking, sharing, commenting and subscribing to the blog. I appreciate every single one of you for taking the time to read the blogs. The support means a lot to me. I also wanna thank the people who showed loved by sending a private message. These things might seems small to you but it goes a long way as it keeps the blog going.

I’ve been working on something new and will be sharing it with you guys very soon so watch this space! Stay blessed people 🙂 Sugars and…

Do you feel like Instagram has been blocking your blessings with this new algorithm? Girl, you’re not the only one! It was a lot easier to get your posts out there a couple of years ago compared to today. Now, if your post isn’t considered as interesting or popular, hardly anyone sees it! Social media outlets are trying to monetise their platforms, so they want more people to pay to boost their posts. It’s just business, I suppose… But we don’t give a flying duck about that. All we want is for people to see our posts. Is that too much to ask for? So how can you outsmart this new insta algorithm, I hear you say? Girl, don’t worry. I’ve got your back. Let’s dive straight into it. Engagement is KING! You gotta have high engagement! Instagram loves it when people engage with your content via comments and saved posts.…

Have you been struggling to find a good pair of mink eyelashes? Well, look no further! I had the opportunity to model a pair of these beautiful eyelashes from Kikè by Delancey. And what can I say… I really loved the look of it! What’s so nice about the eyelashes is the fact that you don’t need to wear tons of make up to get that nice voluminous effect. Bare minimum make up is more than enough to make your eyes pop.  I’ve also applied them on a highlighted and contoured face on a night out and these eyelashes were literally the icing on the cake!  So it’s safe to say that these eyelashes are perfect for day and night looks! Kikè by Delancey has a range of eyelashes available that are all named after the African queens Nefertiti, Makeda, Amina and Cleopatra. The pair I’m wearing in the picture above are…

Who wants to be in a happy and healthy relationship? I’m sure you’ve always wanted to be in one. Even if you’re a baby girl or baby boy enjoying your single life and not in a rush to settle down, this thought must have crossed your mind before. Especially after seeing how some couples treat each other in public, on social media and maybe even in your household. Some of you have fallen in love with the way some couples interact with each other and say: “What a lovely couple, they look so happy. I want something like that.” I can see why you would want something like that. I mean, who wouldn’t wanna be in a happy, healthy relationship? It sounds like a silly question but trust me when I say it’s not. And I’ll tell you why after asking you this question: Are you happy as a single person? Are You Happy…

There are loads of pictures of couples on Instagram and Twitter with the caption ‘#RelationshipGoals’. When you see these pictures, you start thinking about your love life and often get lost in your thoughts. You end up asking yourself: ‘Why am I single?’ Being A Single Pringle For 4 Years It’s been nearly four years since my last serious relationship. In the past couple of years, I’ve been dating but nothing has developed into a relationship. ‘You’re single CynTea, you should go on dates and mingle!’ Yes, I agree dating can be fun. But after some time had gone by, most of us would like to take things to the next level with our potential bae. That’s when things can get tricky as you end up finding out that the guy you’re dating isn’t looking to commit. You’re clearly not on the same page so now you’ve got to start from square one again *sigh*… ‘You’re NOT A Failure!’…

I’ve seen a lot of girls tweeting things like: “I just don’t have time for a man right now. I wanna build my business first before I can get into something serious.” Ladies, let’s be real… if a guy you really fancy told you that he can’t be in a relationship right now because of his very demanding career, will you not be gutted? Of course, you’ll be gutted! You’ll most probably give him 100 reasons on how you’re gonna support him to reach his full potential and not distract him in the relationship. So if this is something you would do, why are you stressed about dating or being in a relationship whilst being a boss lady? Use Your Time Wisely! Dating whilst building a brand/business can be hard. Both cost a lot of time. So how do you make time to work on your goals, spend quality time…

Food For Thought… Earlier this week, I had a conversation with a friend about one of my blogs called ‘Birds Of A Feather Flock Together..’ If you haven’t had the chance to read this blog, make sure you click HERE to give it a read #ShamelessPlug. Anyways, he was telling me how he has different groups of friends that correspond to different aspects of his personality. He noticed that some friends are more ambitious than others and went on to asking me about my friendship circles. ‘Of course I have different groups of friends! Who doesn’t lol?’ was my response to him. The difference is obvious when you compare the banter and the conversations you have with all your friends. After going back and forth on this topic, we concluded that not everybody wants to be an entrepreneur. Self-employment is NOT for everyone and that’s perfectly fine! Please don’t mistake the message in ‘Birds Of A Feather Flock Together..’ for the wrong one. I’m…

It’s coming up to the most LOVABLE time of the year. Some people have been looking forward to this day for a very long time. And there are people who wished that this day didn’t exist due to one reason or the other. Could be due to a heartbreak, memories of an ex or maybe they just don’t give a flying duck about this date. Either way, it doesn’t change the fact that Valentine’s Day is almost here. What Have You Got Planned For Valentine’s Day? Have you made any plans with bae? If you did, that’s good for you! Spoil your bae. In fact, show EXTRA love to bae if you like. Do whatever floats your boat. But what do you get up to on Valentine’s Day if you’re single and don’t have a bae to spend the day with? A lot of single people don’t look forward to this…

Have you ever found yourself breaking up with your ex only for things to feel like nothing has changed? Let me paint the picture… You’re still in regular contact with each other by having your daily WhatsApp debates, still sending each other memes through Instagram and let’s not forget about acting lovey-dovey like nothing has changed… This could be from days to months after the breakup! So when is the relationship really over I hear you say? Good question! Let’s dive straight into it. “Are You Guys Still Together?” Every couple has something that they would describe as ‘that’s our thing’. It could be from having a date night scheduled every Friday night to going back and forth with WhatsApp voice notes during working hours. It varies from couple to couple. Now imagine if “this thing” was to carry on after the breakup… I’ve experienced a few breakups in my lifetime that didn’t make any…
