A Few of my Favourite Things

A Few of my Favourite Things

It was my birthday on Tuesday, which you will know if you follow me on social media! (Twitter or Instagram). So it’s been a busy few days – I thought I’d do a round up my favourite things lately: My new Hunter Boots. I’ve been wanting some for ages, especially for when I’m pottering around(…)

How to Get Your Life Back After Kids

How to Get Your Life Back After Kids

I’ve been writing a lot lately about making time for yourself. And being kind to yourself. Because the truth is that once we have kids, we can lose ourselves a bit. We get so wrapped up in caring for others, for husbands and children and pets and careers and homes that little old me always(…)

Make Up: It’s an Enigma to Me

Make Up: It’s an Enigma to Me

I went to MAC last week to get some new foundation. I took my empty bottle with me as I can’t be arsed to try and guess my colour again or ask for advice. When I got there and asked for a replacement bottle, the lovely sales assistant immediately said to me: “You don’t use(…)

Correction: NOT Out of the Woods

So you know I wrote recently that I was out of the woods? Well, I’m not. What was I thinking?! As I was writing that post I KNEW I was jinxing myself but I did it anyway. It’s like I actually haven’t learnt anything. You must not get all smug because then the Parenting Gods will(…)

ME TIME with Sorbet Fourways (plus get R50 off!)

***Sorbet Fourways gave me free treatments but has not otherwise paid for this post.*** I usually dislike the phrase “Me Time”. Too corny. Too overused.

Being Kind to Yourself

Being Kind to Yourself

One of the biggest things I’ve learned recently is about being kind to myself. I know this is a cheesy phrase and I have always tittered about it in the past and rolled my eyes and then gone on to completely ignore it. But it was only when I was completing a Mindfulness course last month that I learnt(…)

I Believe the Children are our Future

I Believe the Children are our Future

Sponsored post “I believe the children are our future, teach them well and let them lead the way”.  Sound familiar? Those are Whitney Houston lyrics and we used to sing that song (The Greatest Love of All) in choir when I was in junior school. Of course, back then, it was just a pretty song with(…)

My Mother’s Hands

My Mother’s Hands

I look down now and see my mother’s hands. They were not beautiful hands, in the accepted sense of the word, and neither are mine. Her hands were dry and rough, not soft and smooth. Her nails were always short and used to spilt and break. She’d stab herself with a rose thorn or get bleach(…)
