It’s summer in Cape Town and nearly holiday time..woohoo! For those of you who follow my blog, you will know that I have been giving date night ideas since I started. I have loved doing this as it has made me fall even more in love with this amazing city that we live in as I have discovered that there are always such awesome and cool things going on. … [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]
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 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]
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]
I planned to write this as soon as we got back from our holidays but somehow, 2 weeks later, I find myself only getting to it now. So although it feels like a while ago already, it wasn’t actually too long ago and at least I’m getting to it now 🙂
After the year starting off on a seriously dismal start as you may have read in my previous posts, and our December/Jan holidays being far from the best due to all that was going on, it was really good to go away and feel like a happy family again. … [Read More]
So, it’s that time of year to buy presents if you haven’t already done so. Is it just us that are feeling like life is EXPENSIVE! It feels like as soon as money comes in, it just goes straight out. Besides the cost factor of buying presents, for me personally, some of my best presents have been the ones that have had the most thought involved and haven’t cost very much. … [Read More]
For my birthday in September, my husband gave me a Mac make up lesson voucher.
For some, this might seem like it could be taken in the wrong way, but for me it was perfect.
You see, I’m really not very clued up about make up at all. The first time, not that many years ago, I tried to put liquid eye liner on, I am not joking, it took probably an hour! … [Read More]
