Stellenbosch Botanical Gardens

Stellenbosch Botanical Gardens

Apparently Stellenbosch has botanical gardens! I had no idea until yesterday when I had to meet my mama there to get Fysh’s laptop charger. It’s so green! Okay I guess that’s a given considering the name but I mean REALLY green. The grass is so […]

Small Business Saturday – The beginning

Small Business Saturday – The beginning

This time of year is hard AF for small business owners because while people are happy to spout the “support local/small businesses” that tends to be nothing more than say say when the festive season rolls around and they head directly for the big companies […]

The life-changing magic of not giving a fuck | Sarah Knight

The life-changing magic of not giving a fuck | Sarah Knight

I can’t recommend reading this book enough, it’s fantastic. It really is brilliant. I think this woman speaks directly to my brain, all her books do. I’ve been hooked on her books since Jonathan Ball Publishers sent me the Get Your Shit Together Journal to […]

Wolfkop family festival

Wolfkop family festival

At the beginning of March we headed out to the Wolfkop Camping Villages just outside Citrusdal for the weekend to join the very first Wolfkop Family Festival that is now going to be an annual event. Before that weekend I’d never heard of Wolfkop before despite […]

Yellow is the new Blue. Apparently

** I decided to write this because so many people commented on my Instagram stories that they were thinking of buying it this holiday. I know I said I’m going to stay brunette for a while, and I did. A whole few days ;) Decided […]

Wrap Stars made my MacBook pretty

Wrap Stars made my MacBook pretty

WrapStars is the new kid in the neighborhood and they introduced themselves by turning one of my Charlie and Beastie drawings into a vinyl cover for my MacBook! All the heart eyes!!! You know how just the thought of covering your books (or your kids […]

[WIN – CLOSED] An adventure in space!

[WIN – CLOSED] An adventure in space!

We have been attending the Canal Walk summer holiday event for a good 12 years now I think. There are still photos on my moms fridge of us at one of the earlier ones where my brother was about Fysh’s age and I’ve taken Fysh […]

[WIN – CLOSED] ruuuun it’s a T-rex!

[WIN – CLOSED] ruuuun it’s a T-rex!

We got to go to the Dino’s Alive launch opening and it was SO MUCH FUN! It wasn’t what I had expected but then at the same time I’m not really sure what it was that I actually expected so I wasn’t let down if […]

Reviewing Hasbro toys!

Reviewing Hasbro toys!

Check it out… Fysh reviewed some of our top picks from Hasbro for xmas this year. Yes, I really was tempted to wrap them all and hide them away from him but then we wouldn’t be able to review them and I’d also be setting […]

I ordered from Wish!

I ordered from Wish!

I am seriously late to this whole Wish bandwagon thing but mostly because I really hate waiting – I want next day delivery – and also because my card has issues with online purchases. But I had cash in a PayPal account I couldn’t get […]

[WIN – CLOSED] Nerf Blaster Flaconfire

[WIN – CLOSED] Nerf Blaster Flaconfire

Last week Hasbro sent us the Nerf Blaster Falconfire from the Nerf N-Strike Elite Accustrike Series. It’s actually pretty cool compared to the others (well compared to our other one) as the new range has redesigned bullets that make them shoot further and more accurately […]

My forever treasure

My forever treasure

Remember when I won a spot to join one of Janine Binneman’s jewelry workshops? We had such a fantastic time and even Fysh loved it, mainly because Janine gave him a piece of wax to faff with and keep busy while I was learning all […]

Bedtime stories with the Goodness Gang

Bedtime stories with the Goodness Gang

When the Goodness Gang came out I told y’all how much we loved them and that hasn’t changed. Fysh has collected almost each of the gang, just not the carrot – said he looked angry haha. I still love how they promote healthy eating and […]

[WIN – CLOSED] The Secret Book Box

[WIN – CLOSED] The Secret Book Box

There is no doubting the fact that I love reading. It’s always been my way to escape to somewhere that is just better than whatever is here. And it’s a comfort. An adventure. A way to make new friends and see new worlds without even […]

Time for tea

Time for tea

So in February for Valentine’s Day we decided we aren’t going to go all big or whatever seeing as our anniversary is so close to it anyway so instead all three of us stayed in and I ordered a games box from Don’t Disturb. Instead […]

Mindful Monday – The Bodhi Box

Mindful Monday – The Bodhi Box

Things are so fast paced lately, it’s one of the reasons Fysh and I are going camping soon, get away and reconnect. Find our roots again, breathe in some fresh air and meditate for a bit on where we want to go from here and […]

bucket list item you didn’t know you want

bucket list item you didn’t know you want

Yesterday I got to add “carved my own ring” to the “something I’ve done list” and it was amazing, and frustrating and so much fun! It was something I never even thought of putting on my bucket list of things to do but now that […]

It’s big and um blue… It’s big blue!

It’s big and um blue… It’s big blue!

Have you heard of Big Blue yet? Maybe popped into their store and lusted over all the pretties? I have. Actually The Person introduced me to them when we took that train trip up to Pretoria and he bought me the most gorgeous skirt, I […]

The Playstation

The Playstation

A while back The Playstation Adventure Park started following me on Instagram and I’ve been thinking about taking Fysh ever since, the thing is though that they are in Tokai and any true Capetonian will tell you that us to Tokai counts as a road […]
