If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll probably know that a few weeks ago I was invited to a lovely media event at Broughton Country Estate. At the time, we were living in the area and had already seen the signs leading to the new...

Although I have posted updates on Instagram, I do sort of feel like I owe the blog a bit of an explanation or perhaps, a catch-up. This past month has been filled to the brim with tremendous moments; we bought a car, travelled to Plett,...

Last year, I made a promise to myself that I’d travel more often. Darren and I have always been keen on a roadtrip but since welcoming the boys, starting a business and taking on the world, travel hasn’t been a priority. Well, not until recently,...

Whether you're hoping for a promotion at work, or actively looking for a new position elsewhere, how you present yourself can make a big difference. And not just because you're more likely to make a good impression with the higher-ups, but because you'll feel more...

For the last two weeks I have been searching for a way to put into words how I really feel. It sort of sunk in a few days ago that in a little over a month’s time, we were set to wave goodbye to South...

I remember the first time I placed an order with you, back when you still stocked cosmetics. You have come a long way since then, but like fine wine, you’ve only gotten better. Actually, that’s shit… I don’t drink wine, so I don’t know if it...

It may come as a little surprise but even though I have been living in PE for the last 12 years, I have never ever been to Addo Elephant Park. Two weeks ago, we found ourselves in Alicedale for Mother’s Day and didn’t have much...

Just when I started getting used to telling people that we’re leaving to travel South America, the rug was pulled from beneath me and the result was a clusterfuck of a week that shifted our perspective and made us rethink our decision to travel, but...

Friday is SLIPPER DAY! A special time of the year where South Africans join forces with Wimpy to support the incredible work done by Reach for a Dream. Last year Wimpy managed to raise R1.4 million from the sales of Slipper Day bracelets in store, while...

When I was a little girl, I dreamt of becoming a teacher but when the time came, I wasn’t in the position to pursue that dream and instead, I stumbled upon freelancing. It’s been 5 years since I landed my first gig, so I figured...

For the longest time, I have promised that I’d write a blog post sharing what we did to get rid of our debt and most recently, how we have managed to start saving towards our South American travels. It hasn’t been an overnight success but...

In case you missed my InstaStories, last week I announced what seemed, quite unexpectantly that Darren and I are planning to sell everything and travel South America, with the kids. I am sure to many of you, the news seemed to come out of nowhere...

#Sponsored I am giving up coffee this week but before you call a medical professional and question my sanity, here is why: The P&G Children's Safe Drinking Water Programme (CSDW) is a global initiative that provides clean drinking water to families in more than 90 countries. With...

For the last few months I have been incredibly restless, the sort of restlessness that has me looking up ticket prices for our family to go explore a new country with no real plan of what we’d do when we get there. At one stage,...

A few years back, I came across this movement called body positivity which sparked an idea to start a bucketlist challenge that in the end would hopefully encourage me to love my body. Having tried every crash diet imaginable, filling my body with pills to...
