The Person had to head home yesterday already, the joys of working for yourself are that some times you simply don't get to take the day off when everyone else does. I know this all too well - she says currently finishing up this post so she can get back to finishing a mermaid tail order. Didn't feel like being alone at home though so messaged the step parent and arranged that he make a potjie (kinda like a stew made in a cast iron pot over a proper...

We don't really do easter as such, I'm not religious and don't believe in the whole rising of some dead dude etc, and easter was stolen from a pagan holiday and Anglo-Saxon tradition but that's a whole post all on it's own. We sort of do the egg hunt but Fysh has gotten a bit old for the whole hunting for chocolate thing now which is a little sad but am also happy about it, well my ass is any way haha. Technically we were the ones that decided this,...

  I found this on an authors time line and am so in love with it. The style, the music. Just everything about it. It's so hauntingly beautiful and I wish I could put it into words. There is so much you can read into this, how he works his entire life for a few moments of happiness. How we have this need to share our lives with others. I don't want to give it away. Best you watch it. You won't regret it xoxo   Life is what you make it....

Tuesday I got to see Harry Potter on the big screen for the first time since it originally came out but this time it was under the stars and an almost full moon in the company of friends and Fysh which made it so much more special. I loved every moment of it and it was great being surrounded by fans who knew all the words just like Fysh and I. It was amazing. I wanted to cry, best experience ever for a potterhead. But...

So I've been toying with the idea of running a giveaway on my book blog to motivate you to invite your friends who like books to join up to be reviewers because the more reviewers we have the more books we get from authors and I am not a patient person haha. Then Mel and I decided that maybe this wasn't a good idea because people might invite people just so they sign up - ghost reviewers - and that's not cool so I'm going to amend the giveaway a little so that...

Last time I posted a quick step by step of how I do my mermaid hair, well that was easy, one colour and BAM! But we're going to take it a step further this time and add in two more colours to it, well I've done it before but there were no photos and people kept asking how we did all three colours together so I thought I'd show you. There are SO MANY youtube tutorials on how to do it yourself and if The Person wasn't around I'd...

So am not sure if you noticed all the spam you got today or not but that's because I got a bee in my bonnet and decided to give the blog an over-haul yest again. (No I have NO idea why themes spam posts out when I upload them. So effing annoying!) Yes I know I did it recently but it just wasn't sitting right. As is I'm not 100% sold yet, I'm loving the layout but I did want it a little more earthy. But hey, let's be...

I've been following My Sugar for a while on instagram and keep threatening to go there because artisanal chocolate duh! So when we ended up in town with time to spare after taking a friend to see Newlands Forest I decided it was about damn time I curb my milkshake craving and head on through. Finding parking in Sea Point is an absolute b*tch and we ended up parking quite a walk away which I guess was a good thing seeing as we needed to walk off the chocolate....

I am on the fence about book art, I cringe when I think about destroying a book but man it's so gorgeous. I came across some damaged books in my shed (long story) and I was going to toss them because they're really not usable any more but the thought of tossing out books is even worse than the thought of taking them apart for art. So I decided that hell, I finally have a glue gun...

Random Struik (aka Penguin books) sent me a copy of Haafner Linssen's "Hooked on Mandalas" and man oh man I am hooked (see what I did there, haha).    It arrived yesterday morning and the first thing I did was send The Person photos of some of the ones I thought he'd like then headed to thimbles to stock up on some Vinnis Colours 100% cotton so I can turn the Mandala he chose into a blanket for really close old time friends of his who are helping a soul into the...
