Blogs Bloggers Read: Yolandi from A Zesty Life

This Blogs Bloggers Read series is growing in popularity and I’m so pleased!

Today I’m featuring Yolandi, who loves to add something special to everyday life. The name of her personal lifestyle blog (aZestyLife) originated because of this.

As of April 2015, her little family live in the beautiful town of George on the Garden Route of South Africa.

In my heart, I’m a city girl & have 10 years’ experience in the media & marketing industry. When not blogging, I contribute to a variety of publications. My work has been featured in Marie Claire South Africa, Lééf Tydskrif, Rapport Beleef, Your Baby magazine &


Read on to find out which blogs Yolandi loves to read (featured in order of how often she visits them)…


A beautiful Mess


I will never ever get enough of this gorgeous blog (by US-based sisters Elsie & Emma). Everything they touch turn to gold. Their home makeovers & tips are some of the best!


Cup of Jo


Joanna Goddard has the life that many gals want. (Well, that I want at least) She blogs for a living, has two cute little sons & lives in New York. Cup of Jo is all about conversations around topics for ladies – motherhood, career, tips, sex.


Lucky Pony

screen-shot-2016-10-12-at-11-23-47-amDescribed as a blog about Excellent Pretty Things. Angie Batis Durrant focusses on gorgeous design, super tasty recipes (I can’t get enough of her green curry), homes & occasionally motherhood. Great content, great style.


66 Square Feet


I admire how (South African born) Marie Viljoen grows & cooks her gorgeous food on a tiny terrace!


Ask Ashe


It was only recently that I stumbled across Ask Ashe. The look-&-feel is gorgeous, plus I really love that Nicola gives readers a peek into what is happening in & around Durban.



This is a fab blog. I love how Liezel makes things real & accessible & makes life looks so fun (without being superficial like many bloggers).


Fat Mum Slim


A feel-good, but real read. She also has some fun initiatives like the annual gift exchange & Photo-A-Day.


Cupcakes & Cashmere


I know: who doesn’t read Emily’s amazing blog? Always fresh, helpful & consistent.



There you have it. A round up of 8 inspiring blogs beloved by Yolandi. Have you read any of these blogs? Are they your faves too? What others would you add to this list?

Kathryn Rossiter

Kathryn is a South African lifestyle blogger and mom of 2 who has been blogging daily for over 9 years! She writes about travel, health, beauty, fashion, decor and family... but not food (unless it's food she's eaten made by someone else) as she is a hopeless cook. She only wakes up early for 2 things... a red-eye flight to somewhere exotic and early morning game drives. She has just finished an extensive home renovation and would prefer to never see another box again. She's never met a chocolate or glass of bubbles that she didn't like!
