Why You Need to Discover Korango (+15% off!)

Who or what is Korango? I had never heard of this incredible children’s clothing brand either, until they sent me the most exquisite outfits for Rachel and Ben (lucky us!). Make no mistake, these clothes have been created with love. The attention to detail and amazingly high quality is what really made me sit up and take notice(…)

How Barre Transformed my Body

How Barre Transformed my Body

Um, so this post is a bit scary for me because well, here I am in a bikini. I’ve been wanting to write something on the wonder that is En-Core Barre but I haven’t, because I’ve been shy. But seeing similar brave posts from other bloggers (thanks Keri!) has given me the confidence to share(…)

Tuesday

Tuesday

Hello Tuesday, you were busy. Today I made a little guy porridge, got dressed, went to work, read with my learners from Help2Read, rushed home for lunch, went back to work, popped to the shops for groceries, went to a meeting until 5:30pm and then battled traffic to get home. Then I fed Ben supper,(…)

Making Mountains is Two Years Old!

Making Mountains is Two Years Old!

Break out the bubbly and light the candles on the cake, because this little blog of mine is two today! I started Making Mountains as a way of telling my Mom my stories, and you can read my first ever post (and letter to her) here. Today is also the fourth anniversary of her death and although(…)

We Need to Talk About Parenting

We Need to Talk About Parenting

A friend sent me this article: How American parenting is killing the American marriage. It’s got a pretty inflammatory title but the content is, in my opinion, completely true and it’s something I want to talk about today. I may create a few enemies but that’s okay, it’s clear that this topic is a sensitive one(…)

Laughing at Warthogs: Our Trip to Mabula

This past weekend we were lucky enough to be invited by lovely friends of ours who have timeshare at Mabula Game Lodge to share the accommodation with them (in exchange for our very entertaining company;).

Eyebrows, Feminism and Some Other Links

Eyebrows, Feminism and Some Other Links

As you know from my most recent post, I have a thing about my eyebrows. They have always been bushy and naturally dark but kind of shapeless, like two lost caterpillars on my face. But today that all changed because I found someone to fix them and check it out! They really frame my face(…)

Things I Would Tell My 20-Year-Old Self

Things I Would Tell My 20-Year-Old Self

Hello 20-year-old me with the funny hairstyle, chubby cheeks and baggy clothes. Sometimes I wish I could rewind 15 years and tell you some stuff, so you could stop worrying about the mundane and focus instead on the relevant. These are the things I would tell my 20-year-old self : Your body will never be this(…)

Why Men Can’t Find Things (+ need handbags)

Why Men Can’t Find Things (+ need handbags)

“I would like an app that finds husband’s “lost” keys/wallet/memory stick in house so he doesn’t accuse rest of the family of moving them”. This was me on Twitter earlier this week. And all of a sudden a whole lot of other women chimed in, saying that they knew how I felt (about men not(…)
