As I'm sitting down typing this post, my tummy is making viciously loud noises and making many variations of what I'd assume to be "whale calls" due to my juice detox that I am currently doing - which I will write about next Tuesday. By the way, a juice detox is almost impossible to begin… Continue reading Transformation Tuesday #3: Mindfulness Meditation
Dear Diary I definitely did not expect that this past week was going to be so difficult... Monday started off incredibly well and my focus was at 110%! Tuesday was probably even better than Monday; given that my friend came over for coffee and movies which resulted in me sitting and eating tuna and brown basmati… Continue reading Transformation Tuesday #2: Clean-Eating Meal Plan
We are all aware that the gorgeous South African summer is soon to be over and that winter is almost here - although it seems to be taking its time! Usually during the winter, I completely overindulge in all of the wrong things. This usually results in me not being that excited for summer and… Continue reading Fit & Absolutely Fabulous!
Hello again. I am very happy that you're back on my blog after such a long time... I realise that I've been unbelievably quiet and I apologise for that. My go-to "excuse" for when I forget to do things is: "things have been incredibly hectic", but in this case - they really have been! Between trying… Continue reading Transformation Tuesday #1: Ready to Go!
"There is no sincerer love than the love of food." - George Bernard Shaw I have always loved food and to be honest, every part of my day and almost every plan that I make is revolved around good food - my Saturday at Foxcroft Constantia certainly was. I cannot believe that it has taken me… Continue reading A Flavoursome Experience at Foxcroft Constantia
Hello gorgeous people! We know that autumn is here and that winter is soon to follow; which means that things are going to start getting a bit chilly and a bit nippy... To be honest, all we want to do is to snuggle up in bed with a hot cup of tea or coffee and read… Continue reading My Favourite Winter Necessity
I always get my nails done before going back to university, partially because it is so much cheaper to do them in the Eastern Cape compared to the Western Cape! About a week before I get them done, it is my favourite pre-manicure ritual to endlessly search through Pinterest nail art pictures to find inspiration.… Continue reading Summer Nail Art Inspo
I think that when people speak of the twenty-first century in the distant future, they will never be allowed to mention the year 2016. There are so many lessons that I learnt in 2016, some of which were a lot more difficult to learn than others. I would like to share some of them with… Continue reading Sixteen Lessons I Learnt in 2016
As I've previously mentioned, I absolutely love going to the gym! But, just like almost every other person in the world, I often need some motivation to get myself there... The one thing that motivates me, besides being able to sometimes indulge in foods that I shouldn't be indulging in (like these 'Delish Cinnamon Rolls')… Continue reading My Ultimate Workout Playlist
One Friday night, my sister and I were invited to attend Shabbat at a friends house. I was so unbelievably excited because I absolutely love Shabbat - the beautiful traditions and proceeds that take place, while celebrating it with wonderful people is something truly special. Besides having dinner with amazing and special people, the kitke was… Continue reading Crazy About Kitke
So... I got a tattoo! A small one - but it's still a tattoo! I can honestly say that (in the past) if anyone had ever asked me if I would get a tattoo, my answer would have probably been "hell no!" or I would've thought that they're smoking something to even ask such a… Continue reading Tips for Getting a Tat
Dear Bappa There are so many things that I have to say to you, that I have got absolutely no idea where to begin. I get tears in my eyes just thinking about what an amazing person you are and how special and precious you are in so many peoples lives. I am going to try… Continue reading An Open Letter to My Grandfather
