    the perfect father’s day gift

    Classic Black Cornwall 36mm

    This post is a bit late, but rather late than never… My husband and I celebrated our first mother’s and father’s day this year. To celebrate this special time, I wanted to gift him with a thoughtful gift from the little girl and I and I thought that a watch would be a great gift because it is something he will get a lot of use out of and of course would think about us every time he looked at it to check the time :).

    Valentine's Day 2017 buying guide South Africa

    It’s February! This is the month usually dedicated to all things about love, you can’t walk in a mall without seeing a heart, a teddy bear or something along those lines.

However, this year I did want to create a Valentine’s Day inspired lust list of items that fit the theme of the day (red, white, hearts) that I would love to own. So check out which items made me cut! Read more…

    Free and Fresh natural deodorant clear skies

    umembeso 2016

    My boo and I had our umembeso on the 26th of November 2016, after months of planning, stress and overall being tired – the day finally arrived.

    Essence Festival Durban 2016

    Essence Festival Durban

    It has been a long time coming and it finally arrived, the Essence Festival in Durban! I was very excited to hear that this popular US festival was making its way to our shores. You see, Durban and New Orleans are sister cities – I am guessing that is why the festival made its way to the east coast of South Africa. I attended the festival on Friday 11 November – I was unfortunately out of town for the weekend. Next year, I will make sure to be in town for the duration of the festival.  Read more…
