What I…


Well, jeez. I’m 23 years old. What DO I know? What I’ve learnt, though, is that you are the creator of your own happiness and success.


God. My fiance. My parents. My friends. Reading a good book. Music. Mathematics. Dressing up. Eating. Cooking. Horses. Keeping myself fit and healthy. Living life as passionately as I can, really. That’s love.


I’m a bit of a book snob. No Twilight or Eat, Pray, Love for me. I read classics and modern classics, mostly. I’m currently also read French novels to keep my French up. And I’m working my way through reading the Bible front to back. But every now and then I will indulge and pick up a Bridget Jones’ Diary, or Harry Potter. They may not be Shakespeare, but they’re great reads and they certainly have their place in the world.


I’m on a mission to prove that it is possible to have it all- the great job, great wardrobe, amazing, marriage, strong relationships with God, friends, and family, the healthy body, the life experience worth talking about, the great family life and social life… Right now, I have almost all of those, except that I’m not married [that’s happening in September], and I don’t have kids [that’s on the cards for my 30s]. But what I want is to someday feel like I do have it all, and to look back on a truly wonderful life. I also want to someday change one South African’s life, whether that means helping them through school and university, or giving them the opportunity to start their own business, or funding a low-cost house or ten. That’s on my bucket list. Oh, and a pony. I want a pony again.


I’m not a jeans and t-shirt kind of girl. In fact, I hate wearing jeans. I love dressing up, although I hate doing my hair because it is just so boring. I like wearing pretty dresses and heels. I love shoes. Like, really really love shoes. I hardly ever wear jewelry, except for some of my mum’s vintage gold and pearls now and then.I love wearing nice underwear, too. It has to match, though, because I have OCD.


I need God. Every day. I need more patience. Less anger. I get so enraged by people’s behaviour and while I never want to become an apathetic product of this world, I need to learn not to get so angry about other people, and rather focus on being the person I can be. I need to drink more water.

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!
