Umembeso

I know that it’s been over a year since Umembeso wam, but I made a promise to share… so here I am sharing. It also makes sense to start with this one, before I move onto my bridal tips, following my recent traditional wedding/Umabo. I promise not to make you wait for a year for those 🙂 Road to marriage: Taking the next step isn’t really a surprise when you’ve […]

Khumo goes to play school

The other day I announced that I had just had a baby and now the very same Khumo goes to playschool! Pinch me. Just like everything else that concerns children, as a parent, you can do all the planning in the world, but they have their own minds, attitudes and behaviours.

Life update, the nervous makoti

I cant remember the last time I did a life update. Forgive me. I feel like I’ve been overwhelmed the whole year, seriously, when is this roller-coaster slowing down?! I took on so much in every area of my life; I’m half won-out by it all and half-energized by the fact that I survived it. It’s a really strange feeling. As close as we are to the end of the year, I […]

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 […]
