    Reverie Beauty Studio

    When I first started this blog, I reached out to small businesses that I was really interested in, & one of them was Bella Boneca.  Megan was so kind to me & we have stayed in contact ever since. Recently she took over the salon Reverie Beauty  Studio in Illovo, JHB & she invited me to go there to have a pamper afternoon.  I was so excited as there is nothing better than being made to feel beautiful, having some time just for myself, & simply being spoilt rotten.  I finally got some time last week to go through to the salon in Post Office Centre & sat back ready…

    Will Work for Nut Butter

    Our family has always had a slight obsession with nut butters – on apples or bananas; in a smoothie; on toast with sugar/syrup/bacon; mixed together with ice cream & milo; or even just out the jar as a little pick me up (yes, by the spoonful!).  In fact there are probably at least 10 other ways that I would recommend eating it – but all this talk of food is making my tummy grumble. Recently I scanning the ‘Gram (as one does when wasting time or needing to see whats going on), & I saw this page.  I immediately commented on the pic & Keagan reached out to me within…
