How can you ensure that you give gifts that matter to the recipient?
The key to spot-on gifts is knowing the person you will be gifting well. Their tastes and interests are a great cue for that. This applies to all kinds of gifts from birthdays, special occasions to random ‘I appreciate you’ gifts.
I personally am one for practical, thoughtful gifts that give the recipient something they need or have been hoping for; that will make an immediate impact in their lives.
Living gifts such as plants also are winners. They outlive their value by continuing to be reminders on a regular basis. Careful that the person being gifted with a house plant appreciates taking care of them. Some people may not appreciate plants that need to be cared for.
Journals can save the day if it’s an acquaintance or a colleague you’re buying a gift for. They are just the right kind of personal for the unfamiliar recipient and professionally relevant at work.
Experiential gifts are still winners in terms of creating lasting memories. Gifts such as a day of adventure or a pampering treat may not offer any tangible tokens to display and touch, but fill the heart with life and memories. No amount of money can replace great life experiences!
That being said, surprising daring gifts that propel a loved one to look at life differently also make great gifts. Do know though that they may not initially always be received with enthusiasm since they will push the envelope a bit.
If the gift is meaningful, it will always serve its purpose, even if it has been re-gifted to someone else by the person you had initially bought it for.
It is the thought and love that counts, the more genuine your sentiment, the more appreciated the gift will be, wherever it lands😊.
I decided to relocate and this is a brief account of the first four months back home. https://www.instagram.com/tv/CLZMAphjo67/?igshid=1kih23qwt2bmf
I signed up for 33 online courses on #Coursera today.
It sounds like a lot of courses however, each one takes about 2.5 hours to complete, and it is in subject matters currently in my to-do list.
So why did I load up on so much learning?
I figured it will help me immersely to have a learning guide with me every step of the way, as I continue to complete my business to-do list.
This will ensure that I get things right the first time, and learn any new tricks in the process.
I am a pro, been doing most of my work for about a decade now, however new tricks are always welcome.
This is especially because I’ve shifted my business focus from corporate clients to individuals, also from traditional business to creative arts industry. Those shifts require that I brush up and keep myself relevant to the new industry I am currently operating in and the new customer.
I AM UPLEVELLING MY GAME!

Give me a gift I can wear, all my life.
Wrap me with Love!
I will remove it when I bath, and lather myself with your soap of love.
I will put lotion on,
One buttered with your love,
And feel my skin soften.
I will wrap my body with cloth,
One with your love,
From you, my love,
And feel love.
How often do we stay naked in life?
Even in the coffin, we cloth.
We know no nakedness, only cloth, and when we are naked, we still don’t see our nudity!
The world can bevel and laugh, admire, adore us. Still, the world is our eyes, that sees our nakedness.
Lest we take a photo, capture ourselves in a moment of nakedness, and risk public scrutiny when pandora’s box opens.
Or look in the mirror, and miss how perfect our nakedness is, because the mirror is crap quality.
Yes, wrap me with love.
Buy me a gorgeous dress.
Cover my nakedness with grace.
Allow me to take it off and cherish my nakedness,
When I allow myself to be me,
Look at my nakedness
With just as much love.
Today I realise, Zenwa adds value to its customer.
There was a time when I felt bad and discouraged about showcasing the latest Zenwa range to whomever I come across, my existing clientele as well. I would often think to myself, “Times are tough, we are all struggling financially with taxes going up and the gloomy economic conditions in our country. What makes you, Ncumisa, think that there is a woman out there who will spend their hard-earned money on frivolous purchases like your fabulous dresses and decor stuff?”
Well, today I was sitting in a taxi and overhead women talk among themselves. What triggered my interest in the conversation was the context.
One was sharing with her travel-mates how, the specific dress she was wearing, bought with her hard-earned money, reminded every time she wore it that she is fabulous!
They went on and talked about how one does not need a lot of stuff, buying a dress or two that will serve you for a few years is sufficient. Because, as women we do need that special 👗 that always works no matter what! That recollects one’s confidence without breaking the bank, serving well in any occasion, be it a formal family gathering, a church event, a wedding or even that odd outing with the girls!
So, dear reader,
I proudly say, Zenwa aims to serve and honour the woman. Every part of her that needs to be clothed and soothed. Reminded of her greatness. Gracing her ebbs and flows without making her feel too fat or too skinny. Serving her for years as if it was bought yesterday!
We all deserve it. Our confidence in ourselves and our abilities is elevated when we feel beautiful.
And the right dress does just that.
We conquer the world one dress a time!
A short while ago, soon to be a year to be exact, we had our first official photo shoot.
It was awesome, perfect and the best delivery for a first attempt for all of us except the photographer of course.
So, as we continue to discover fabulous platforms that take the meander work we plough into majestic publications,
We are sharing our first official Zenwa catalogue, on our brand new Issuu platform.
