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.

What I know for sure this week - week ending 14th September.

  • There is hope for Zimbabwe, and South Africa...we hope!
  • South African paralympians have done us proud, and are wonderful role models for our children.
  • Herbal teas are not that bad after all.
  • Like most things, even positive thinking is about whether or not you want it badly enough.
  • CNA Hillcrest have already put Christmas stock in their store (no seriously!)
  • Veggie juice with ginger is definitely my new favourite drink....(ok 2nd best to Cappuccino with cream!)
  • To be productive and successful depends a lot on whether you have clearly defined goals or not.
  • My daughter is going through an emotional shift.
  • Mothers are without a doubt the heart of the home.
