What I… Chantelle from Not another Poppie

One of the blog genres I most enjoy reading are beauty blogs – there are some amazing ones in South Africa. Today I’m interviewing one of them – beauty blogger Chantelle from Not another Poppie. She features beauty product reviews and news all with refreshing honesty and a touch of fun!

Here she shares her answers to my “What I…” interview questions!

What I…. 


That I must never think I know it all


Sleeping in, the smell & sound of the sea, rain (with or without thunderstorms), cocktails, finger foods, books that keep me reading through the night, laughing, quiet time, crazy nights out, cosmetics (obviously), my blog, the funny things in life, the strange parts of people.


I’m not too genre specific and will read almost anything if it hooks me in the first chapter. If I have to pick favourites it would be suspense novels, thrillers, biographies and ‘based on true events’ genres. I also have a massive list of blogs I follow via Bloglovin’, and I usually skim through them daily.



So many things. A house of my own is right at the top of my list, and once I have that I can’t wait to start making little improvements and adding things to make it look the way I want it to – that’s definitely my biggest itch at the moment.

And in the opposite corner… Every time I see a travel show I think of all the interesting places there are still to be seen.

I’ll also take a BMW X6/AUDI A8, an 8 hour trolley dash through Sandton City and a thinner bum if anyone’s offering.


Comfort trumps fashion. If I had to have a ‘style’ I would hope that it’s classic – I wear lots of grey, black, navy and dark denim with dashes of colour in between.


I thought for about 10 minutes now, so I guess I don’t need anything.

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!
