Not a Blogger

It’ll be twelve years in March this year, since I first started writing online. Back then, I was afraid to call myself a blogger, because I was still so new at it. Because I didn’t know all the technical stuff.  Because we were far away from everything we knew, in a new and foreign place […]

Beauty Blogger Argan Oil Draw

It’s been a couple of weeks since I posted on the South African Bloggers’ Facebook page that I was looking for beauty bloggers to review and give away samples of organic Moroccan Argan Oil. Well, tonight, I finally got around to roping in my boys to help me select five of the 32 ladies who […]

Funny Story

No, not really. I’m pretty embarrassed to admit this but I’m afraid that, despite having started blogging more than 10 years ago, I am pretty much an imbecile when it comes to the technical bits. That’s why, although I have finally gotten around to drawing the names of the five Beauty Bloggers to whom I’ll […]

Lanced

I have this thing where I feel like I have to make each new post follow at least vaguely on the last one. It’s kind of annoying. So I’m just going to stop it, because I can, damnit. For someone who’s a supposed writer, I have very little to write, I’ve realised. I’m not even […]

So, where possible, I’ve grabbed greedily at every opportunity to take some time out and be sociable. Last weekend, we got to attend the Philips AVENT 30th Birthday brunch. This was one of those rare occasions […]

The End of March

And just like that, a month has gone – don’t ask me where! March is always a busy one for us. We have 5 close family members’ birthdays in March: My brother’s on the 7th, our James’ on the 9th, FIL’s on the 10th, David’s on the 17th and my mom’s on the 26th.  And, […]

Liebster Award

Okay, so I wasn’t actually awarded this one. I saw it over on Cassey’s blog and mentioned in her comments section that I may use it to inspire some cool Q&A type  stuff for a post on my blog. Of course, it sounded like a totally unsubtle hint at wanting an award,  so she added […]

@TheatreOnSquare #DoubleBass

What a happy surprise to find an invitation in my inbox last week to the opening night of Patrick Süskind‘s The Double Bass at Sandton’s Auto & General Theatre on the Square! Thank you, Wenchy! Many people don’t know this, but I was accepted to Pro Arte for Drama many, many years ago. It has […]
