Saturday started off on a good note, my daughter won a silver medal at her karate competition and we followed this up with our favourite celebratory tradition-pancakes. Yet even this, could not beat our visit to the 2nd, City Bowl Fashion Market at 14 on Hope. It was an absolute madhouse of gorgeousness and truly

A week and a half ago, my daughter was given a new school assignment for EMS. The challenge: Make a compound word. A compound word which could be used to describe an object, the example give: a cheese-shoe. The product or item would then need to be built. So in the given example she would
Yesterday, a wonderful and honest gentleman by the name of Nathan ( https://twitter.com/#!/NathanBlows) ( I love honest people), mentioned on twitter that he couldn’t read the funny curly text on my blog. At first I had no idea what he was referring to. I thought really, it’s too curly? I mean, okay, perhaps ‘Sertig’ is
Jinjin Jewellery, based in Constantia Village Life Style Centre is officially, my number one spot for purchasing Jewellery in Cape Town. Keeping it local, the owner of this fine establishment, Suzie, is utterly fabulous. Her ethos to sell and promote only local smaller jewellery designers, is truly inspiring. You are guaranteed to leave with
A few days ago, a dream I have had for years, has finally been announced as reality. Perhaps not yet in South Africa, but it is coming our way soon. As a teenager, I always said, I will never buy a vehicle, not until I can have an electric one that charges off solar panels.
Things I am grateful for today: A healthy body and mind. Clients who recognise the value of my assistance and remind me why I love my work and are grateful for my assistance. I’m grateful to be able to assist them. Staff who work hard and assist me in doing the best that I can.
This last weekend I had the fantastic fortune of experiencing a locally lekker getaway, with some very good friends. We stayed at Mount Bain Nature reserve, in Bainskloof along route 62. To be more specific we stayed at the wonderfully priced Riet Dak Huis. Working out to around R 150 per person per night, or

Have you ever scratched a friendly African grey parrots head? I have. Just this last weekend in-fact. Sunday was another gorgeous sunny day in Cape Town. One that I felt could not be wasted. I started off contemplating a visit to the Cape Town Lion Park, but after a quick conversation with friends of ours,
If you didn’t know it was there, you’d walk right by without a second glance. It was simply by chance that I happened to notice this gem of a store. Across the road from the Biscuit Mill. It’s a world of old, made new again. REcreate. I certainly wouldn’t mind a few of these
Yesterday, a dear friend of mine, experienced what seemed like an earth shattering blow. She called me in a state of despair. I didn’t stop to think, its the middle of the day, or about how much work I have on my plate, with my business just hitting season I am swamped. Instead I told
Imagine a home, where the lights turned themselves on and off as you entered and left the room, saving you approximately 90% of your current lighting bill. Imagine not having to shop for your veggies and herbs as you could grow them at home(even if you lived in a flat, in a city). Imagine if
If you have Google Analytics installed on your blog or website (which I hope you do), it’s time you tried In-Page Analytic’s. I have personally been using this to assist in the direction of my websites for a while now. Not many people seem to know about it, let alone grasp the full use
Dear Wedding Co-ordinators and Party Suppliers, It has come to my attention that there is a product missing from our market, one that most brides, in fact every one of them that I have met, including myself, would like.
