So recently Fysh and I went for an evening of absolute FUN at Canal Walk. If you're a local I'm sure you already know that every December for the past 10+ years they host a ice adventure over December. Bringing some snow fun to our summer holiday season. If you're new...

I have read every single one of Dan Brown's books and absolutely loved them though as of yet I haven't read Inferno for some odd reason but I am definitely going to read it ASAP.

I wanted to do this on the 13th cause I know that for some of you Friday the 13th is "unlucky" which I find a little dumb and society driven but anyway, as things would have it I had a pretty decent day and good things happened but I wasn't able to get to wifi to go through all the entries and pull the random winners (all winners are random, I only do a re-draw if they've already won one of the 28 days and are drawn again...

IT'S MY BIRTHDAY! And to celebrate my birthday and my obsession with Harry Potter my equally obsessed friend Padfoot from Mischief Managed is gifting one of you some HP love :) Padfoot and I met on SM and immediately bonded over Potter, we've had many days since she moved to Cape Town where we just sit and watch Potter and talk kak, for her birthday I took us to watch Philosophers Stone at the Galileo :D it was the bomb! Now if you're a Potter fan you'll know that The Cursed Child is...

I LOVE my monthly book delivery I get to review and I jump with joy when authors send me their books because yeah I may be a little book obsessed haha. So to spread the love of books I'm putting together a box full o fbook love for one of you. It'll have a little lap blanket because the cold is nearly upon us and we can all do with a little warmth, some hotchocolate, a mug, a bookmark and 3 books from authors I adore. Genre's vary so...

ONLY TWO DAYS TILL MY BIRTHDAY!!! And yet as exciting as that is I have no plans because most are busy or live not in the mother city. Nothing new there, but that's why we're doing these giveaways. So you can celebrate with me!!! We started off the first giveaway with cupcakes but sadly only for the peeps in Jozi, today I'm going to spoil only the Cape Town peeps! With a dozen delicious cupcakes from Jorja who owns Whisk'd :) Here's what Jorja has to say for herself > My name...

I've known Von from for the love of nail art since grade school when she bullied me into being her friend, no lies hey, she walked up to me and said "YOU! We're going to be friends, come." and then walked off expecting me to follow her and obviously I did hahaha. Man I love Von, she's direct and down to earth and tells it like it is. She's also extremely talented in a lot of things. One of those things just so happens to be nail art! Now...

Mama started SA kids on the Go about 12 years ago when she moved to Cape Town and realised that she didn't know anyone here and that finding kids related things/services and just places to go with kids was really hard so SA Kids was born! The good part > we are giving away a 6 month full page listing on the site as well as a newsletter spot (goes out to 13k relative subscribers) to someone with their own business that could in any way be useful to...

SO many people ask me where I get my hair done and are gobsmacked when I say "in my bathroom" but it's true, I do it myself (though The Person does help occasionally as you've seen) and you know what? I save a good 1 to 2 thousand rand doing it myself because yes, that's what I've been quoted. Either they come up with some ridiculous number that has me break out in a nervous sweat cause that's my monthly car payment or they simply say they can't/won't do...

I met Angela via the Dragon Writers group on FB which is the bombdiggity if you're an aspiring writer as it's a group made up of AMAZING accomplished and published writers and newbies alike so it's definitely a go to for any questions you might have, also where I found the editor for my book so boojah! Angela is on a mission to get her latest books Strong Medicine out there and known and she's decided to give up on conventional publishing for now and self publish it which means she's...

Of course I had to throw a little something in the mix from myself. Actually this won't be the only thing from me, there might be one or two more to fill gaps where people bailed or promised a spot and didn't get back to me. Cause yes, that is the simple reality. Things don't always go as planned. But hey, if they did you wouldn't get loves from me right?! And I know you simply adore me ;) I really wanted to give you a mermaid tail but...

My GORGEOUS friendling Fi from Pout Perfection and I met through a bloggers support group that was started by another amazing blogger and man am I glad I joined and met her cause Fi is just one of those people who makes the world a happier place. You can't be sad around her, such a warm person. I'm not actually sure where the rings come in to be honest. I just know that she has these beautiful silver rings made up and sells them and some of them are...

Vin d'Easel - Small art for big people The concept arose from our love of photography, illustration and art. We wanted to combine those elements to produce a tangible product to share with the public. All our art is supplied with miniature easels and comes in a gift box. So Vin d'Easel (clever name right? hahaha) is run by Christine from Flat White Concepts and her hubby. Chris is such an epic person. I know I say this about all my giveaway people but that's simply because they are! I...

Jaclyn is a graphic designer who makes proudly South African babygrows over at Schnooky Pie and other adorable little clothing items for kids and she approached me cause well awesome attracts awesome right haha? Also cause she saw I love hedgehogs and she just so happens to have hedgehog babygrows in her arsenal! I don't know Jaclyn well so I'm going to just let her speak for herself quickly: My name is Jaclyn Holmes, I am the owner and director of Schnooky Pie Handmade in SA baby clothing. Schnooky Pie is...

Okay so if you don't know about Meghan or who she is you have most definitely been living under a rock. I made friends with her on instagram when she started this frigging amazing 365 project that she actually completed. (I can't even manage a 30 day project!) Quick catch up in case you don't know who she is : one extremely effing talented artist by heart and teacher by day who took pencil shavings and turned them into art. This is one she did of Fysh and I last year...

T and I go way way WAY back all the way to art class in Matric. Back then we got kicked out of class often daily and our art teacher told us we should simply give up because our art will never get us anywhere. (that's putting it in a nice way).  T now works for Eleven and is shit ass successfully designing stuff for big brands and I'm, well I'm me haha, doodling and designing to pay the bills. Take that Ms Meyer! But that aside, we're here for...

Deborah from Pure Sweet Joy is another crafty and clever blogger who has some really fantastic DIY tips! No seriously, she's like the how to version of pinterest and I love it.

BUT here's the deal, if you don't have a baby that's 3-6 months you are allowed the option of requesting just the iron...
