LIFE CHANGES: GOOD, YET SCARY & CRAZY

The past month has seen the start of a brand spanking new chapter in our lives. It has been super busy & I would be lying if said that there weren’t any challenges & stresses! In case you thought that we were just lazing around, here’s an idea of what we’ve been up to: left […]

internet inspo #2

Today I’m sharing some practical tips, pretty bits & some food for thought. PRACTICAL TIPS: Once the clearing bug bites, I often find myself uncertain where to start & end up spinning around very unproductively, which is why I loved these tips for quick kitchen cleaning from Good Housekeeping, and these on cleaning your home […]

THE WONDERFUL LIFE OF APARTMENT LIVING

We will soon be leaving our beloved condo, in exchange for what will probably be a grown-up, suburban home. The time is right. I know. But I feel a bit like the time when I had to let my little student car (a VW beetle or Volla affectionately called Gert) go. I knew the timing […]

internet inspo #1

Aah. The internet. Such a wonderful place, thing, invention. Call it what you like. Bottom line is: it’s full of inspiration & can keep you busy (& side-tracked, oh boy) for hours & hours & hours. Here are some of the latest inspirational bits on my radar. Enjoy. Recently, I found myself very eager to […]

DEAR 2015…

I can hardly believe that we’re almost two weeks into 2015! I have a really good feeling about this year. So good, in fact, that I’ve decided to write it a little love note… Dear 2015 Thank you for arriving at exactly the right time. I was so over 2014 – phew! What a tough […]

SURVIVING THE SILLY SEASON {PART 2: GIFTING}

SURVIVING THE SILLY SEASON {PART 1: GETTING THINGS DONE}

I don’t know about you, but the closer I get to December & Christmas, the slower I seem to get things done. I realise that I might have taken on a bit too much (not complaining about work coming my way though, but still), when all I really want to do is wrap gifts, bake […]

DIY FABRIC ADVENT CALENDAR {STEP-BY-STEP}

I am so excited about this post, I can hardly keep my composure! It is officially 40 days until Christmas, which means you still have some time left to get your gift shopping in order, plan your menu, decor & get yourself organised. If, like me, you love the concept of an advent calendar, then […]

MY CUPPA 4 CANSA {BLACK & WHITE WITH A POP OF COLOUR}

I love the Cuppa 4 Cansa* campaign. Maybe because it’s an excuse to have a party AND do something worthwhile at the same time? I’m so grateful that my inner-inner circle has not been affected by breast cancer, but I know many women who have & I really believe that this is a cause worth […]
