So there's this chick I know who stalked me on twitter and forced me to be her friend. No I'm kidding, it was probably the other way around haha but am so glad I've had the opportunity to meet her and that I get to call her a friend. I also get to brag that I wrote a book with her! Lucky for you this friend is one of the most generous people you know, a talented artist and writer, a traveler and best of all...

Kerri from Forever Illustration is an old friend I met via social media who like me learned that art is great for the soul and is cheaper than therapy and it just so happens that she's bloody talented as well and thus Forever Illustration was born. She's offered to let one of you send her your favourite photograph of your favourite person or furbaby and she'll turn it into a pencil master piece for you to keep forever. I even get one as a birthday gift and I can't...

It's the first day of 28 days of giveaways and am SO stoked to introduce you to The Cupcake Lady! Because what better way to start my birthday celebrations that with an über talented friend and CAKE! Angel is fabulous and her cakes are works of art! Sadly she lives in Jozi so I haven't had the luxury of being able to get them all the time. Obviously with her being in Jozi today's giveaway is only eligible to those who'll be able to collect from her there though am...

You know, as far as months go March wasn't a horrible one. I haven't quite caught up on my November/December debt yet, actually I added to that with the breaking down of my car but despite that it didn't quite suck as much as I thought it would. Does this mean things are slowly getting better? I really hope so! This month we...

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...
