    La Luna Blends

    I have really seen the benefits of going “natural” with some of my treatments, & this includes the food & drinks that I put into my body.  I am trying to drink more water, & less tea & coffee.  However, when I saw these gorgeous teas at Jozi Girl Eatery, I wanted to find out more about them.  What made them so special?  And what do they actually help with?

    Sugar & Paper

    This time last year I had my fundraiser, The Snow Ball, to raise funds for my life-saving stem cell transplant.  I was blown away at the generosity of everyone that I knew, as well as those that I had never met.  Liezl was one of those very special people that didn’t even know me, yet sponsored the most gorgeous (& delicious) snowflake biscuits for everyone that attended my event.  The biscuits didn’t even make it home as they were all gobbled up at the event! Then, my friend Jenny spoilt us all at Rare with a box of Christmas-themed cookies, & as soon as I saw them I knew that…

    Veg Out

    Recently my husband & I began a healthy eating & lifestyle plan, & when I realised just how expensive this was going to be, I literally shuddered.  I am having to go to the shops every second or third day to buy fresh fruit & veggies, & these often go vrot before we get a chance to finish them all.  I knew there had to be an easier way of doing this.  I feel like the big supermarkets often mark up their fresh produce excessively, & these often seem to be at the end of their shelf life too – which means they have a very short life span. And…

    TanFabulous

    I am THAT pale girl.  I get asked if I am a vampire, if I am wearing stockings when my white legs show, & if I spend any amount of time in the sun I simply come out looking like a lobster. At school I remember being so envious of all the “cool kids”  for their tans from their overseas island holidays, & their healthy glow that just radiated from them.  Perhaps if I had a tan I could tap into that level of cool & garner some of their confidence? So I invested in some self tan. I SLATHERED that stuff on daily & you could smell the coconutty…

    Woelig

    I LOVE a good t-shirt – especially when they have funny South African sayings on them.  You can wear these anywhere, & pair them with jeans/shorts/skirts.  And when I saw a local business creating super-cute designs, including clothing for babies & children, I immediately popped them a message to see if I could feature them on my blog. Your name: Anneke Buckle Business name: Woelig Social media handles:  Instagram & Facebook Tell me why your shirts & designs are so different to others:  Everything about Woelig makes me proud. The font, the cute afrikaans words and all the love that goes into it even the packaging. The words are unique, proudly…

    In The Jacaranda’s

    I feel truly blessed to have a friend who takes the most stunning pictures. Meghan McCabe has shot my entire family, including my animals & every time I lose my breath as I look through the final results. I am certainly no model. I am overweight, I am clumsy, & I end up laughing my way through every shoot.  But Meghan makes me feel comfortable & beautiful – & isn’t that what we all need? This is my absolute favourite time of the year & seeing the gorgeous purple flowers from the Jacaranda’s brings a smile to my face – so what an honour to be photographed by one of…

    The Jozi Girl Eatery

    A plant-based diet is definitely something I have been more aware of – especially since watching the Netflix movie, The Game Changers.  It shows the importance of loving your body, & only feeding it the very best that it deserves.  Husband & I have been more conscious of what we have been eating, & our favourite place to go for a date is The Jozi Girl Eatery at Broadacres Centre. Other than the absolutely delicious food (I am busy working my way through the menu & trying something new every time), the whole vibe is just so relaxed & stunning.  Plus they are pet-friendly, with water bowls & treats at…

    Sugarbird Gin

    I am a HUGE gin fan.  I don’t usually enjoy too much alcohol, but when it comes to gin I feel there is nothing better on a hot evening.  Husband & I sit outside, enjoy a cold drink together & chat over our day.  My body doesn’t feel bloated or gross after I have indulged a little, & I haven’t woken up with any kind of headache. And then I discovered Sugarbird Gin & I was even more excited.  Read on to see why… Your name: Nzeka Biyela Business name: Sugarbird Gin Social media handles: Facebook & Instagram What makes your gin different to other brands: A proudly South African gin…

    Anastasia Writes

    Anastasia is a beautiful young lady.  I met her through my work with SLDV Portrait, & she created a stunning family portrait for me, as well as a picture to show strength through the toughest time of my life so far. I also met up with her at a branding course that I attended, & we immediately clicked.  She has a passion & positivity about life that you don’t see very often, & when I put out a call on social media asking for ideas as to who I can focus on next, she reached out to tell me about another side of her – her poetry. Now, I LOVED…
