about me

My photo
Married to Nick for 13 years, with 2 children; Sabrina - 12 and Dominic - 11. I am a girlfriend through and through in that I love girly things and anything that celebrates the essence of being a woman. I love vintage, shabby chic, the country and try my best to do my bit for the environment. SO yes...we have 3 bins in our house and try our best to recycle! I believe that with everything in life, the closer we stick to nature, the better off we'll be. I would love to have a balance in life, but have learnt that balance is not always possible, so strive for significance instead, in the hopes that that will be just as meaningful, and the rest will hopefully follow.

Things I know for sure this week ending 28th September

- My husband's mother Addie passed away suddenly on the 28th September.
- With any situation in life, the outcome and it’s affect on you, depends entirely on how you CHOOSE to react to it.
- The Beatles were so right when they sang “All you need is love”.
- My daughter is hooked on the Glamour Guide….and I say yay!...maybe she will be a girlfriend after all!
- South Africa’s beauty and appeal, is such a stark contrast to it’s dark and twisted criminal element, that cause so much sorrow to the many who are touched by it every day.
- Life certainly does work in mysterious ways…


  1. So sorry to her about the passing on of Addie. My thoughts and prayers with you all at this time.

    Lots of love ...
