Help save our Rhinos with CNA and WIN a R500 gift card. {closed}


Our family have a beautiful holiday house very close the border of the Kruger National Park. We have been so blessed to be able to visit that house during many holidays growing up. As kids we were so exposed to all the beautiful wildlife our country has to offer. It’s so very dear and close to my heart. We spend so many balmy evenings sitting in bird hides at water holes, watching the animals, some with babies, all gathering around to drink or bath themselves …. Continue Reading

{RESULTS} My 5 day ‘Skinny Juice Co’ cleanse. Giveaway closed.


I DID IT! Thanks to The Skinny Juice Co, I completed my first 5 day juice cleanse. Read my first post all about it here. Listen, it was not easy and I am embarrassed to admit that I did cheat a teensy bit but I still finished it and I am SO proud. I have to be honest with you all otherwise what’s the point, right? Here are my physical results:

Weight loss
I started the cleanse at 54.5KG and lost a little …. Continue Reading

Jordan’s 1st Birthday. A very special day to celebrate!


Two weeks ago we celebrated our little Jordan’s very FIRST BIRTHDAY! What an incredible milestone for us all. I cannot believe we met our gorgeous boy one entire year ago. It has been a roller coaster of fun times, hard times and the BEST times we have ever experienced. The heaps of advice, books, parenting apps and unnecessary Baby City purchases have definitely schooled me into what is important and what isn’t. Above the obvious, all a baby really needs is LOTS of love. There is no shortage of that for our precious Jordan.

Jordan woke up when it was still relatively dark so we started the …. Continue Reading

{REVIEW} Fresh Squeezed Feeding Line.


Babies LOVE squishy food pouches. Those food pouches have been good to me when I simply have not had the time to prep something fresh to take in the car with us or keep in my bag when we’re out and about. However, I can’t help being skeptical of something that has a shelf life of over a year.

Jordan loves eating food out of a pouch and always ends up eating more than if I had to feed him out of a bowl with a spoon. Jordan has also become very impatient since he started walking …. Continue Reading

The Skinny Juice Co. My 5 day juice detox.

As mentioned in my previous post.. the past few weeks have been a rollercoaster of birthdays, kids parties, work commitments, junk food and..well.. life. We have been so incredibly busy, the type of busy that barely leaves room for exercise and a good diet. Yes, I know that you MAKE TIME, but it really has been tough lately. I have been desperately  trying to get a grip on my eating habits as quite frankly, they are shocking. I need to take control of my body …. Continue Reading

{RESTARTING} The Kayla Itsines Bikini body guide. My bikini body challenge going pear shaped.

I feel like I owe you guys a little update. With my tails between my legs I have to tell you that I have not set foot into the gym or into my running shoes for over 2 weeks. I am feeling the WORST for it! You know those people who say that you’ll FIND TIME to work out if it’s important to you? Whilst I generally agree with that ‘philosophy’, it has to allow for a little bit of slack somewhere in …. Continue Reading

My birth story. The day our lives changed forever.


Exactly a year ago today we welcomed our little boy into the world. It’s taken a lot of thought about whether or not I should make public something that is so deeply personal. Hence why it has taken me an entire year to post this. My birth story. I’ve had this written and stowed away for quite some time because I did not ever want to forget a single second of the beautiful day that forever change our lives. I wasn’t sure if I wanted to share something so personal on such a public platform. I have decided to share Jordan’s birth simply because I have LOVED reading other …. Continue Reading
