For this month’s ‘Your Stories,’ we meet Carmen and Bradley. Carmen is a wife, mom and together with Bradley, owns and runs Babarazzi, an online store selling top quality baby brands. What I love about hearing ‘Your Stories’ is how life brings two people together in sometimes strange and unconventional ways as is the case here with these two. Thank you Carmen and Bradley for sharing your story with us…. [Read More]
It’s been a while since I’ve done a ‘Your Stories’ post and I’m so sorry it’s been so long! I just love reading and hearing about how couples meet and getting a bit of insight into their relationships and lives. I’m so fascinated by the fact that there are so many people in the world yet something draws us to that one particular person at a particular moment in our lives and it just feels so right. … [Read More]
As we find ourselves heading into October, I can feel my anxiety levels rising ever so slightly as I start to think of all the things that need to be done before December arrives which at this point, feels like just around the corner. … [Read More]

My new rebranded site is live! Woohoo!
While I liked my previous logo and branding, when it was originally done, it was done just to ‘get something out there’ so I could start my blog. Now that I’ve found my voice within my blog and have a better idea of where I want to go with it, I felt like I wanted something that represented me more. And this is it! What do you think? Be sure to go to the Home page and have a look around. … [Read More]
The last couple of days I’ve been feeling really edgy and irritable. I don’t really know why. I can probably guess at a couple of reasons but that doesn’t really help the feeling go away. It comes and goes but when I’m feeling this way my patience is seriously low and my ability to get annoyed at any little thing is seriously high. I nearly lost it with my daughter this morning when I thought she was still in her pajama top and not dressed for school yet … [Read More]
Do you like receiving flowers from your partner? I have to admit, that until the last few years, I didn’t really get the ‘husband buying me flowers’ thing. I’m not really sure why but I just didn’t. I think it was only when we moved into our house and my sense and love of decor really came into its own, that I started to ‘get’ it. I now LOVE having a fresh bouquet of flowers in our entrance area … [Read More]
The 1st September officially marks the beginning of spring here in Cape Town. It still feels like I’m waiting for winter to come though as this August feels like it’s spring already. I love the month of September. It could have to do with the fact that it’s my birthday month, along with my daughter’s as well, but there is something about the promise of Spring … [Read More]
This past weekend my husband and I had a party at home. There was no occasion for it. It was just a ‘let’s have a party for the sake of it’ occasion and I have to say I think we’re on to something! But let me start at the beginning…
So every year, as my birthday starts approaching, I start saying ‘maybe I should have a party?’ I think about it, I talk about but I never do anything about it. … [Read More]
Growing up I was quite a fearful child. I was very shy and sensitive. However, although a fearful child, as I grew older my confidence grew as well. I was very good at sports, I was popular at school and at some point in my life I developed a very healthy, ‘I can do whatever I set my mind to attitude.’ Otherwise known as a bit of a ‘fuck you’ attitude. And by you, I refer to my dear old companion…FEAR. … [Read More]
If you read my blog post, have no flipping clue what to buy your partner?, you’ll know that I said I would be doing more of these kinds of posts. The kind where I give you ideas of what to buy for your partners because sometimes it’s so damn hard to try think of something. Like I said in my other post, presents given on special occasions are great but presents given out of the blue for no reason … [Read More]

I know that this might not be the best way to start a giveaway but I’m going to start by telling you that today, the 27th July, is my dad’s birthday. Tomorrow is the day he died 6 years ago. He would have been turning 68 today. So today is not a very good day for me, however, in a strange way doing this giveaway today just seems so perfect. … [Read More]
