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...
