We needed to come up with a unisex gift under R100 for a christmas gift swap thing. I was going to crochet slippers out of odds and ends but then I was told it's numbered and we won't know who's getting our gift so shit that's not going to work cause you can't really make one size fits all slippers when there's men and women involved. So shit...

So mid last month I got bold and offered myself up to Abigailk.co.za for her #CTconfidence initiative. She did it last year and you can watch the video here. I really loved it and you'll see a bunch of familiar faces in it. So when she said she was looking for 10 girls to do it again this year I thought hey why not right? Well she decided to change things up?! And this year instead we were given 3 questions to mull over and answer. Oh fuck it was so awkward. Abigail is...

Not sponsored but we were sent the game.  Mzansi means South in isiXhosa but we use it as a slang term to mean South Africa.  And being a South African pretty much means you're genetically programed to be fiercely proud of it. Although sometimes it takes living elsewhere for a while to make you realise just how much of a saffa you really are. We're all about the braai's and flamingos, the watermelon for xmas, sandboarding, saying "ja nee, dis lekker" and understanding that "just now or the other day" have wholly...

I have read every single one of Dan Brown's books and absolutely loved them though as of yet I haven't read Inferno for some odd reason but I am definitely going to read it ASAP. In case you didn't know, Inferno has been made into a movie! Robert Langdon is BACK! and to celebrate the release of INFERNO, Penguin Random House SA and Sony Movies SA are giving us the chance to win a set of double tickets to the exclusive Inferno movie screening on Wednesday!!!

When you think the holiday season we automatically think cocoa right? But if you're like me and you live in the southern hemisphere then you know that there aren't too many days that are cold enough to really enjoy hot cocoa and mini marshmallows and we don't get pumpkin spice everything here either (which I'm really sad about) and Glühwein is better replaced with ice cold sangria. But we still want to cinnamon, rum and apple and make it as festive as possible so here are 5 of my favourite...

We all got some really shitty news today. A fucking oompa loompa has been voted into the oval office because apparently orange is the new black and Americans are more offended by emails than by racism, sexism, bigotry and xenophobia. Hitler 2.0 cause it was so successful the first time round...

I absolutely adore the holiday season. I start watching the hallmark Christmas movies now already and often start reading the Christmas themed books in July haha.  It might be because when we were little, no matter how shitty things were going for my parents they always made it the most special time for us. We would always spend it at my grandparents who lived at the Cape Columbine lighthouse in Paternoster (grampa was a lighthouse keeper) so the holidays would start with a road trip from Lüderitz all the way...

Every damn day since the day I found out I was pregnant my life has been wracked with doubt.  Doubt about whether I'm eating right, sleeping enough, holding him properly, feeding him enough etc...

Summer in SA is HOT! And with the spring flowers coming and going earlier than usual this year it's a good indication that we're going to have a lot of tweets and posts about how we're dying of the heat. And I don't know about you but I don't do very well with the summer heat. In fact ,you want to know something really funny? Despite being a South African raised in Namibia I actually have a sun allergy. Yup, not kidding. I found out when I was living in...

Fysh is ALWAYS HUNGRY! I swear he has worms (he doesn't, we do the deworm thing often as we have pets) and most of the time I'm hearing "do we have anything sweet in the house?" which of course we don't most of the time because we tend to eat it soon as we get it - we really are horrid at keeping things for later haha. We save quite a bit by doing our shopping on a Wednesday when food lovers does their Wacky Wednesday Specials which means...
