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...

Yesterday the Today team dropped off a box with 3 everyday ingredients for me to use to create a puff pastry masterpiece. The challenge was to create beautiful food, on a budget. I was free to add or remove anything that will give my creation the edge it needs to trump the other bloggers who they've also tasked with this challenge. I decided to use exactly what they gave me, mainly cause I still don't have my car and the thought of heading to the shop on crutches isn't...

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...
