My 5 Favourite Finds for October 2016

Oh dear it’s the end of October (How did that happen?) and unfortunately this series has fallen drastically behind since I started renovating and went travelling for almost 3 weeks back in August. I’m so sorry about that. It’s not intentional. It’s just life. I’ve been living out of suitcases and boxes for over 3 months […]

Quick Fashion Tips for Busy Moms {video}

Now listen to me… I’m no expert when it comes to fashion. In fact I’m still learning every day. (and I could never be a true fashion blogger as I hate posing for 100’s of photos in public places AND my husband refuses to take more than 1 photo at a time… and always under […]

My Winter Wardrobe finds… from Truworths

In recent years I’ve discovered that I love fashion… No, not high end couture (although that is pretty!), rather, I refer to putting together everyday outfits that work for me… a mom on the run… the school run, the 5km run, the event run, the extra-mural run, the work-for-yourself run and the constantly on-the-run run!
