Calli And Co

With my whole focus on "going green" & living a life that doesn't affect the environment as much, I have been putting a lot of research into this.  I am also preferring to support small local businesses & am really being drawn towards those that show their heart for what they are doing.  And that… Continue reading Calli And Co

Propa Food Bar

A while ago my sister (who has the Metafit franchise in South Africa) told me about these fabulous smoothies that she had tried.  She then ordered these for her training that she was doing out at Prince's Grant for personal trainers, & managed to get custom ones made in the colours that she needed.  I… Continue reading Propa Food Bar

Happy Paws

Recently I attended the Field Market here in Joburg.  It was my first one, but I know that I will be attending more in the future.  Their description is what really drew me in: "At our open-air market nestled along the Braamfontein spruit life is unhurried. Stroll underneath the trees through stalls that lure and… Continue reading Happy Paws

Jislaain SOS Tees

Trying to live a greener, better life is one of my goals for 2019.  I want to try to recycle, refuse & reduce - I no longer accept plastic bags when out shopping but rather take my fabric reusable bags into the shop with me, & if I have forgotten them behind then I will… Continue reading Jislaain SOS Tees

Love For A Little

Sometimes there are things that I come across that just touch my heart, & that I wish had been around when I was a child.  When I first saw "Happy To Be Me", it was something that drew me in immediately & I knew that I had to find out more.  Then I saw that… Continue reading Love For A Little

With Love Baby

One of the very first friends I made in Joburg had her baby shower this past week.  I always love to give gifts that I am sure nobody else would think of & find little gems that fit the personality of the parents.  My friend is one of those super organised people - she always… Continue reading With Love Baby

The Part-Time Vegan

Our friend that currently lives with us is a vegan and I have always been interested to see what she comes up with for her meals.  She has even allowed me to sample some of these (yum!) & I think is secretly converting my dogs into vegans too as they sample everything on her plate… Continue reading The Part-Time Vegan

Makeup by Ryno

Having this extra time to recover from my transplant has allowed me to discover myself once more, as well as what I am really passionate about.  And I realised how much I absolutely ADORE makeup & how much I miss doing my makeup, as well as others.  I have been out of this realm for… Continue reading Makeup by Ryno

Rare Disease Day 2019

Being a #RareWarrior means that today is one of the most important days of the year.  As you can tell by the title, it is International Rare Disease Awareness Day.  Being part of Rare Diseases SA means that I get to see behind-the-scenes & I am constantly in awe of just how much this organisation… Continue reading Rare Disease Day 2019
