Quick life update

If you’re feeling abandoned you’re not imagining things – I have kinda disappeared deep into the webpages of my school work and this life update is long overdue. If you read my last post on online learning, you’ll know that I decided to add YET another item on my already-crazy-to-do list. I’m currently studying and the balancing act is not very practical with my full time work and family life. I […]

{Career Development} Online learning in South Africa

online learning; online learning south africa

Every so often, I like to bring in a bit of the professional side of what I do onto the blog and I thought I’d talk about online learning, a topic that is relevant to me right now because A) learning and talent development is what I do for a living B) I’m excited to be doing my first online professional qualification, which also explains why I’ve been a little […]

Khumo’s first birthday party

1st birthday

Wait, can I call it a birthday party if it was just us… her parents, brother, aunt and grandparents?!  I decided to spare myself the headache of throwing YET ANOTHER big celebration, especially after Lesedi’s 8th birthday party and my 30th birthday luncheon just a few weeks ago! She’s only one, which means she will be napping for most of the day or be grumpy around a huge crowd and everyone wanting a piece of […]

Thoughts before my 30th birthday

Turning 30; 30th birthday

I’m currently on a workcation in Europe, which means that I’ve had some time to think. Truly and deeply. Not just the kind of thinking that requires me to just get through my to-do list. This trip couldn’t have come at a better time because I’m due to sign up for my membership to the Dirty-Thirty Club in just a few days. I never thought I would be excited to turn thirty. Never. […]

Lesedi’s superhero picnic birthday party

I had two big projects over the festive season, the first of them being Lesedi’s birthday party. I was really excited on his behalf, because it had been 3 years since we had a party for him. We always celebrate and take him out on his day; but the timing for a party is always off since his birthday is on December 31st. Most people are away or doing their […]

A quick life and baby update

I’m finally back at home… Hallelujah!!!!! Firstly, I would like to thank each and every Mama that has shown me love and support over the last two weeks. I think I scared a few of you with my Instagram post during my hospital stay, I’m sorry 🙂 Although this will be a very short post, as I’m still in recovery, I just wanted to give you a quick update on […]

Being a mom of two is harder than I thought

Being a mom of two is hard

Yazi I can’t help but feel that my parenting standards have dropped, being a mom of two is harder than I thought. Khumo turned 6 months two weeks ago (yes I know that haven’t done a baby update yet) and this marked a huge milestone in my life as much as in hers. I felt like I had achieved something quite significant, because it’s been a mess behind the scenes. Between […]

My baby shower


My baby shower was everything I wanted it to be – – Relaxed and intimate: filled with the love of my son, closest family and friends – Pretty: I was getting into the groove of this girly thing – NOT a surprise: surprises are a control freaks worst nightmare. It was held 6 weeks before my due date, which turned out to be a blessing in disguise because I landed up in hospital […]

Welcoming my newborn baby – yes I had a baby


I’M A MOMMY AGAIN!!!!!! This time to a baby girl whom we’ve named Khumo (which means wealth) I feel so excited and blessed to be given the privilege of being a mommy of two. This comes as a surprise to many because I chose to remain discreet about it. Let me explain: This pregnancy has been soooooo different to my first pregnancy, in many ways and for many reasons. Part […]

2016… here’s to new beginnings

with love From MODERN ZULU MOM

Happy New Year!!! As I reflect back at the last year, starting Modern Zulu Mom was a major goal and highlight. I cant believe this baby is 9 months old already!! I have always wanted to create a platform and space to “vocalise” my personal highs and lows, throughout my 7 year journey as a mother. It took a lot for me to get the blog up and running, because I can be the […]
