LG NeoChef Microwave Oven review

LG NeoChef

By now, you probably know that the kitchen is not my favorite place in the world, but like every other busy mom, my daydreams of having a chef are still very much that, a day dream… BUT I’ve become much closer to the dream with the LG NeoChef Microwave Oven.

Soweto Marathon Journey

I’m so grateful for all the love and support I’ve received #OnMyWayTo10K with Future Life. It only makes sense for me to share more about the highs and lows and most importantly the COMPLETTION of the 10km Soweto Marathon! Of course it didn’t come easy, here’s the story…   In the beginning… It seemed impossible to get 10K ready within 8 weeks. It may sound like a lot of time for […]

Toddler Sleep Battles

I thought the sleep wars would be over within the first year of my daughter’s life, but right now, one of my biggest struggles is getting her out of our bed! The girl has taken over completely. She wants to fall asleep in there and stay there. Our bed is even her preferred spot for daytime naps! I never quite expected this with her, because by 6 months, I was bragging that she was […]

#OnMyWayTo10K {Soweto Marathon}

I did say that 2017 would be the year that I push myself to do as many things that excite, challenge and grow me. There’s a lot that I haven’t ticked off and then on the other hand, there’s the stuff I’m currently ticking off! I’m both excited and anxious  to have been challenged to train for the Soweto Marathon 10K run in just 8 weeks. I’ll admit that I […]

Dear Mama, YOU are good enough

Dear Mama, you’re good enough  Our current error of information-overload and social media consumption is fun, informative and life-changing for networking and building relationships, but it can be derailing and distracting at times. I’ve noticed that if I personally spend too much time consuming external “stuff”, I lose track of my own goals, confidence and plans. I start subtly measuring myself against other moms who seem to be handling things […]
