THE WINNERS: NIP+FAB BUST FIX COMPETITION

Towards the end of last year, I ran a lovely competition with NIP+FAB after testing the BUST FIX myself (as part of the #Betterbustchallenge). So, congratulations to the two lucky winners: Amalia Appleton & Marike van der Merwe! I really hope you both love the product as much as I do.   Yolandi ♥

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 […]

BRILLIANT BEAUTY(FYING) GADGETS

I’d like to believe that technology has enabled us to work smarter & save so much time that we have more & more opportunity to do the things that we really love (like salon & spa treatments, of course). Sadly the opposite is true. The better technology gets, the less time we have. Ironic, no? But […]

Surviving The Silly Season {Part 2: Gifting}

One of my very favourite things to do during the festive season is to wrap gifts. If fact, my family members often make fun of me because I’m often very ‘strict’ about making the gifts look pretty & festive – each gift (no matter how small) must at least have some sort of ribbon or […]

TIPS FOR A BEAUTIFUL NECK & BUST {& WIN WITH NIP + FAB!}

I MUST, I MUST, I MUST IMPROVE MY BUST. This was the mantra of many of my high school friends who were seriously disappointed at their AA-cup sizes. At that stage of my life, I wasn’t too phased. Sure, I needed good support (being a generous C-cup) & I was the girl in ballet class […]

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 through, but still), when all I really want to do is wrap gifts, bake […]

THE SUN DILEMMA {WHY YOU NEED IT & WHY YOU DON’T}

“Oh Mr Sun, Sun, Mr Golden Sun, Please shine down on me… Oh Mr Sun Sun, Mr Golden Sun, Hide behind the tree… These little children are asking you… To please come out so we can play with you….” Whenever I sing this song to my baby boy, I’m reminded of two things: (1) to make […]

A VEGETARIAN BOBOTIE {RECIPE}

Traditional bobotie is one of my top South African dishes! It is really, really tasty but often not the healthiest of recipes. For instance: my favourite traditional Bobotie recipe contains sugar, bread, jam, raisins, chutney & oil. It is served with yellow rice (made with golden syrup (!), turmeric and raisins). Mmm… probably not ideal […]

Make Your Own Fabric Advent Calendar {Step-by-step}

I am so excited about this post, I can hardly keep my composure! It is not December yet, 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 you […]

#betterbustchallenge with NIP+FAB {MY SURPRISE}

I’m officially into the second week of the #betterbustchallenge with NIP+FAB, which started on 3 November 2014. Let me be frank: when I was approached for the challenge, the skeptic in me honestly did not expect anything to improve. As far as I am (or was) concerned, my post-baby bust would only improve with drastic […]
