About


I am a short blonde proudly South African chick.

I was brought up on a heavy dose of imagination and make believe. Nature rocks too, I love almost everything that breathes and I try to give back by recycling, buying organic and using items that are not tested on animals.

I met my partner when I was 17 and we have been married for 13 years. We live in Johannesburg, South Africa with our 2 beautiful daughters, ages 7 and 11, 2 crazy dogs and 2 very different cats

I decided to start my own blog to put down my random thoughts and hopefully entertain you with them!

Thanks to my wonderful sister, who has single-handedly organised my website – here I go…!
