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

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

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

Moo Cachoo

As I am sure you know by now, finding hidden gems of South African greatness is something that makes me very happy!  Somehow many of these seem to be baby/kids goods, even though I am not a mother myself.  I don't know if it is the Facebook & Instagram algorithms that are seeing how much… Continue reading Moo Cachoo

Lois’s Beauty Studio

When I left school I studied for 3 years to become first a beauty therapist, & then a spa therapist.  I learnt all the basics such as manicures, pedicures, massage & facials; & then moved on to sports massage, reiki & more specialised treatments.  I absolutely loved doing this & meeting all the interesting people… Continue reading Lois’s Beauty Studio

While exploring the world of social media, I… Continue reading The Curious Kitten
