    Michelle Funke Coaching

    Michelle is one of the most amazing people I have ever met. She is so kind, and after only one session with her I felt like I had huge breakthroughs in my life. I have had life and business coaching before, but still didn’t really understand the full benefits of it. That was until I had my coaching session with Michelle. We chatted through my imposter syndrome and people pleasing, and then chatted through some major events in my life. We discovered where a lot of my self-doubt and lack of self-belief has come from, and despite all the tears that I shed, I left feeling so much lighter and…

    Laurie Watson Photography

    I met Laurie at a birthday party for a friend’s child & I was instantly drawn to her energy & zest for life. She captured unseen moments, & you could really get an overall feeling for the day when browsing through her pics. I started following her on social media & we sent messaged back & forth on a few occasions. We bonded over our love for animals, beautiful things & supporting local businesses. We would often send little messages of encouragement to one another, & I am always completely enamored by her style of photography. During this nationwide COVID-19 pandemic, people are staying in their homes for at least…

    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?

    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…

    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…

    To the woman at the Gym

    About 2 months ago I plucked up the courage to join a gym. I haven’t exercised in over 15 years, & my body has taken huge strain.  Having Myasthenia Gravis meant that I couldn’t exercise, as stimulation of the muscles meant that they were weaker overall & it could even affect my lungs & breathing.  Well-meaning people would say I need to get fitter, or lift weights in order to try strengthen my muscles, but it just isn’t possible with MG.  It is a very frustrating situation to be in, as we all know the importance of exercise as well as the associated endorphins. But now, with my second chance…
