It feels like quite a while since I’ve written about one of our date nights. Last year, we were going out every week on a date night but this year has been very different. There have been various different reasons for this which I won’t go into now but bottom line is that’s just the way it’s been. So, on this particular date night, we felt like we wanted to splurge a little bit and felt like going somewhere different and a bit more special. So we tried Charcoal Dining.… [Read More]
I must sound really boring every time I start a blog post with,’ Can you believe we’re heading into this month already!?’ but seriously…August!? When on earth did that happen??? When I’m going through my every day life, I can kind of forget where we are in the year because there’s so much other stuff going on but when I sit down to write … [Read More]
Do you ever feel like you’re living a double life? I don’t mean having one family here and another stashed away in some little dorp (city) halfway across the world. I mean the person you are right now…is that you person you want to be? Used to be? Strive to be?
Sometimes, I feel like there’s two of me. No, not in a schizophrenic kind of way (although with those mood swings at that time of month I can definitely border on that) … [Read More]
I am writing this post from a very wet and cold day in Cape Town. Personally I love winter as much as I love summer. Coming from the climate that we do, we are spoilt and I can love winter because I know that come November/December time, the sun will shine, the days will be hot and summer vibes will be happening! Until then though, it’s fires at home,… [Read More]

I don’t know about you but when you have been together for as long as my husband and I have ( almost 14 years) you start running out of ideas of what to get for each other when it comes to birthdays and all those special occasions.
If you have been following my blog or you know me personally, you might have realised now that for me, small gestures have big impact…. [Read More]
How romantic is you bedroom? Does it inspire you to feel calm, romantic, seductive?
When we did a second renovation in our home, I was determined to have a ‘sanctuary’ of a bedroom. That one room in the house where I could step into it and feel calm, romantic and luxurious. I wanted our room to be OURS!… [Read More]
Wow! I’m not sure if I’m going through some kind of pre midlife crisis (I’m 38) or what but this year has been a tough one. I won’t go into all the details now as you might have read some of my previous posts (go to My Journey for some of those) but I feel like I am on such a roller coaster ride of emotions this year. So much of what I’m going through is about trying to find my voice, trying to figure out who the hell I am and to really figure out what it is I want to do with my life … [Read More]

A couple of years ago, my husband bought me one of those presents for my birthday when at the time he thought it was a really good idea and his intentions were really good. I, on the other hand, was not as sure as he was, I probably ended up crying about it, it definitely caused a bit of tension … [Read More]
