The New Normal

The smile on my face... plastered. How is lockdown going for you? Over the past three weeks, I have gone through ALL the emotions, and none of them have involved much productivity. There's a strange thought that started spreading across mainstream social media channels that this is a time to learn a new skill whether… Continue reading The New Normal

Things to do under lockdown…

I was going to title this post '5 things to do under lockdown' but this is just under five, and '4 things to do under lockdown', doesn't quite have the same ring. The alternative was ‘4 things to do while social distancing, but that’s quite the mouthful. So here we are with ‘things to do… Continue reading Things to do under lockdown…

Fitness Reads: Jog On by Bella Mackie

I picked up this book on Sunday, the day of my flight back to South Africa after spending a glorious two weeks with my very yummy husband, look at him, he's gorgeous. No matter how many sleeping tablets I take (don't take more than the recommended dosage), I never seem to fall asleep on the… Continue reading Fitness Reads: Jog On by Bella Mackie

2020, Let’s Do This!

Hello beautiful people. It's the start of a new year. I'm still on holiday so I am in a great mood. It's not that I hate my job, in fact I consider myself extremely lucky to have such a healthy work environment, however more time with the love of my life is always welcome. I've… Continue reading 2020, Let’s Do This!

So You Ran a Marathon, Now What?

The last four weeks of marathon training were hard...one might say non-existent 😂 My knee was behaving like a juvenile delinquent, the kind that needs to be locked up and never let out. I could barely walk without feeling pain in each step. I went to a few physio sessions, 1 week out mind you… Continue reading So You Ran a Marathon, Now What?

You Grow Girl!

We've all heard the saying 'build the kind of life that you don't need a holiday from.' There is an aspect of truth to it, however just because I love my job, it doesn't mean I don't want another holiday...or two! I am 4 days into what seems to be the longest week ever already… Continue reading You Grow Girl!

Bad & Boochie

I've gone full steam ahead with my booch (kombucha that is), brewing. I am a woman obsessed, just ask my Mr! You'll regularly see snaps of my successful (and not so successful) brews on Instagram. About a week ago I was at the grocery store with one of my friends and came up with the… Continue reading Bad & Boochie

Black, Fat & Living with HIV

I have set for myself a target to run a marathon...forty two kilometres (yikes!!!) in order to raise funds for POWA, an organisation that helps & empowers women who have been… Continue reading Black, Fat & Living with HIV

How to Make Your Own Kombucha

Last month my boyfriend’s mum sent me SCOBY to start my kombucha brewing journey. Kombucha is fermented black tea loaded with probiotics and antioxidants. It helps improve your overall gut health and contains a high content of B vitamins, particularly vitamin B12, known to increase energy levels and contribute to overall mental well-being. Its high… Continue reading How to Make Your Own Kombucha

In review: intermittent fasting

It seems as  though there's a new diet almost every single day. If you’re a 90s baby you’ll remember the Atkins diet, the South Beach diet, the Blood-Type diet, the Zone diet, the list is endless. One of the reasons why I’ve never stuck to any of these diets is because I don’t like being… Continue reading In review: intermittent fasting
