I know you do it. I do it to. Mix up some cookies. You try to be good. But ultimately, you’re there for the dough. You know it’s a little bit dangerous (apparently raw eggs are bad for you - tell that to my hockey coach who made me have that weird raw egg and milk protein shake back when I was on the provincial team) but one bite isn’t gonna kill you, right? And do you really know anyone who has ever gotten sick from eating cookie dough? So…...

Dealing with a few things at the moment and needing to make some changes. Cup overflowing and not in a good way and am not really sure how to deal it other than to just cut myself off for a while, so I'm switching off my phone and I'll log on to the iMac once a day to check if there are any important emails for work. Other than that I'll be back next week. Maybe. Keep safe xxx...

  I love giving gifts (hence the 28 days of gifts which is officially a go with every spot filled! You're going to LOVE the amazing sponsors) but I am only human and I also really love receiving gifts but as I mentioned, my birthday is generally a bust which means that I don't get spoiled in the way of lots gifts (but I so appreciate the ones I do get!) so this year I'm going to throw every damn blogging rule to the wind and be cheeky...

Ever since shaving my head March 5th 2013 and donating over 60cm to cancer I've been looking after my hair a LOT better than before the shave. I'm sparing when it comes to peroxide and I can count on one hand how many times I've put a straightner to it (I adore my curls now, no more hating them). A lot of the things I use I make myself mainly because it's cheaper than the hair masks you buy in the shop and I'm cheap frugal like that. Up until recently...

So next month is my birthday - Hells yeah!!! And to top that off it's my crown birthday! (I turn 28 on the 28th in case you don't know what a crown birthday is). I have a love hate relationship with birthdays though, I love them and throwing a big themed party makes me super happy but for some reason usually only 2 people show up for it, nope I'm not kidding, I blogged about it last year. Anyway, that aside, I still love it and still try do something...

I don't post "beauty posts" often but I needed to tell you about this so bare with me. I've been hearing about shampoo bars for ages now and I keep meaning to get myself one from Lush but it's such a mission to get there and I don't like to buy stuff unless I know what it smells like which means buying online isn't really an option. So when I somehow ended up at Canal Walk and we happened across the Lush store there and I braved the sense overload and decided that...

My friendling is still visiting which puts me in a REALLY great mood even though sadly she's heading back to Namibia tomorrow. There are a lot of shops here that they don't have in Walvis Bay so we went on a mission to visit them and find her some slippers. Now madam has paws, she's a size 8 or 9 and I realised how hard it was for her to find something comfortable that actually fit so I offered to crochet her a pair instead. We got some...

We've been plotting something for a while now and I haven't been allowed to blog about it cause the person involved reads my blog but I can finally let the cat out the bag!!! Nadré and I met and became instant friends 19 years ago in Walvis Bay when we were cute little blonde kidlets in pigtails with a penchant for causing chaos and starting fires. We lost touch for a while when I moved away but thanks to Facebook we connected again and picked up right where we...

Dear Future me, I'm posting this because hopefully at some point it'll pop up in your timeline again and you'll be able to appreciate all you have so much more because you know where you've been and what you've come from...

For this project you will need 1 ball each of dk yarn in your choice of colours – I chose 3 and alternated them every 2 rows but you could have as many or as few as you wish. 1 crochet hook size 4mm a large eyed yarn needle to sew up the side at the end ** This tutorial uses US crochet terminology cause it’s what I taught myself with. Let’s get started! Note: rows 1 and 2 form the ripple shape and rows 3-6 are the pattern repeat. I changed colour every 2 rows in...
