silwerstroom strand

I am not really a beach person. I am more a river in a forest sort of person mainly because the forest is pretty and green and has shade which means I can hide from the sun that my body is allergic to. I do love the beach but the sand gets everywhere and theRead more

Our weekend in photos – Three Fountains Estate

A friendling of mine and her family headed away for the weekend and needed a house sitter and of course I jumped at the opportunity because not only did it mean a weekend away it also meant a weekend away on a farm estate and who wouldn’t want that after the shitty week we’d had.Read more

Looking for snow 

Today The Person got a bee in his bonnet and decided we should take a drive out to Darling to see the flowers. My mom and Fysh went last week and the photos were amazing so we thought why not. I really wanted to show him the weskus sneeu that blankets the fields up thatRead more

Celebrating 7 years of life

We ended up cancelling Fysh’s party and said those who want to join are welcome to come join us at the waterfront and I arranged that Fysh’s best friend comes with. Surprise surprise, or maybe not, everyone bailed.  But The Person, Fysh and I had the best damn day regardless and more so Fysh hadRead more

A Table Mountain instameet

So as a local earning local monies we don’t go up the mountain really often because let’s face it, most of the fun things like that are aimed at the tourists and the dollars and euros that they bring with them and hiking up there in my severely unfit state would probably require me beingRead more

#wherethefuckiscupcake – Part four – Southern Comfort Horse Ranch

Southern Comfort Horse Ranch is in the middle of the forest in Haakenberg (just outside Knysna) and it’s as horsey as you’re going to get. A family run and maintained farm with the chattiest tannie and her daughter taking bookings. If you don’t like flies or the smell of farm or a communal kitchen withRead more

#wherethefuckiscupcake – Part three – Out of place

We packed up our goods and headed out at check out instead of staying an extra day like we’d originally had planned because of course the forest was calling. Being on route 62 we decided we HAD to go to Ronnies Sex Shop seeing as it was only 2km away. Ronnies is one of thoseRead more

#wherethefuckiscupcake – Part two – Warmwaterberg Spa

It was dark when we arrived so I didn’t get to see too much but we checked into a wooden cabin with a bed that sounded like it had seen better days and needed a can of oil, had a proper Karoo dinner and a southern comfort and lime (apparently another clue) before the restaurantRead more

#wherethefuckiscupcake – Part one – Let’s go damnit

A while back The Person decided that we need a holiday and that my birthday would be a great excuse to have one so he planned out a road trip with secret destinations while I arranged for mama to babysit the Fysh as my birthday gift. I hate driving, maybe it’s a roll over fromRead more

One more stop. I think

We missioned through to Rosebank which was a good 40 minute drive (and that for capetonions requires padkos hahaha) for a birthday party and The Person headed there from Stellenbosch. For a party that was an hour and a half long.  So here we are, in Rosebank, in 2 cars. May as well do somethingRead more

step by step mermaid hair

  Right, so many a person has asked me where I get my hair done, the answer used to be StyleBar but when I decided to go blue those lovely trips stopped as they don’t do fun colours so I had two choices; either find another salon or just do it myself. I got aRead more

whale vomit, dassie pee, massages and a spookhuis

I was invited to the launch of Rain Africa’s new fragrances – Leaf, Twig and Nectar – the nectar by far winning my as my favourite, it’s soft and beautiful and reminds me of spring in Germany. We all met up at Charlies Bakery and had no idea what our destination was, this apparently wasRead more

Thanks to social media I met an amazing woman years ago, sadly she lives on the other side of the country and somehow we’ve just never been able to meet up but today it happened! Today I finally got to meet the wonderful person behind The Blessed Barrenness and she’s as awesome in person asRead more

honky tonk wedding

I attended my first wedding in a very long time as nothing more than an attendee. I honestly can’t remember the last time that has happened, I usually go as a photographer or bridesmaid so this was really nice, I got to show up and just enjoy other peoples company (well kinda, once the rumRead more

little fisher boy

Not so long ago we did a styled shoot with Lauren Pretorius Photography, well Fysh did it. He had a blast and I’m so in love with the photos. He’s really into fishing and we have a veld with a river pretty much in our backyard so we packed up some equipment and missioned downRead more
