About me

Hello and welcome!

I’m a 36 year old South African living in Cape Town with my hubby of 12 years.

I enjoy travelling, cycling, trying new restaurants and losing myself in a book.  My blog is my happy little space where I unpack my thoughts and share whatever is on my mind and in my heart.

The list of what makes my heart sing include:

My husband who I’ve known forever since we grew up next door to each other.   Got together when I was 19 and were married 4 years later.  He is an amazing photographer and we’ve gotten to see beautiful places thanks to his sense of adventure and love for nature.  He has a wicked sense of humour and loves me unconditionally.  Even though I’m hopeless in the kitchen and I have more shoes than common sense at times.  I feel super lucky with my boy next door ❤

Spending time in nature – we love being in Pilanesberg National Park, Addo Elephant Park, driving up the Garden Route to Wilderness and Knysna.  Visiting Langebaan and spending hours in West Coast National Park.  We also adore Hermanus and seeing the whales is always a breathtaking experience.



Good friends.  One of life’s biggest blessings is having close friends you can count on.

That first cup of tea in the morning.  And afternoon.  And evening.  And before bed.  Actually I rarely meet a cup of tea I don’t like.

Shoes.  I’ve loved shoes and been incapable of just walking past a shoe shop since I was five.  Nothing has changed three decades later.

Same with books actually.  When I find a book that draws me in, I have pangs when I have to put it down to go to work or eat or sleep.  And I get the worst book hangovers when a brilliant book ends and I want more!

Nail polish.  I can never have enough nail polish.  Never.

Blogging.  Being in this little space I call mine and meeting amazing bloggers from all over the world.  It is pretty awesome.

So that is me and my happy list.
