What I…


Everything in life doesn’t always go the way you planned. When it does, you have to be grateful and revel in the moment. And when it doesn’t, you have to learn something from the experience.



My supportive friends and inspiring family, cats, coffee, lipgloss, the evolving art of fashion, Italian food, the colour pink, the scent of cinnamon & vanilla, damask print, recreating dishes inspired by chefs on tv & in print, discovering quaint little South African towns, travel and writing.


The keys to the Gossip Girl closet, an Andy Warhol pop-art portrait, a coffee machine that is self-cleaning, self-setting and self-filling, the GPS co-ordinates to the Fountain of Youth, the entire Benefit beauty range, the secret to eternal happiness…and…World Peace 😉


I’m a fan of modern chick literature that’s witty and insightful. My collection of Cecelia Ahern books holds a special place on my bookshelf. In magazines, locally I read Glamour, Cleo and Elle. Internationally, I like the fashion editorials featured in Harper’s Bazaar, Vanity Fair and Vogue. Also, my reading list of beautiful blogs continues to grow everyday.



A combination of chic and classic tailoring with soft romantic lines. Outfits in a mélange of different textures and fabrics, with a play on proportion and a touch of whimsicality.


A new camera to replace the one I mysteriously ‘lost’.

To stress less and live more

A girls weekend and a family get-together – Though not at the same time 😉

A ‘comfortable’ pair of high heels, which is more elusive than Cinderella’s glass slippers.

Thanks so much Sam – that was FUN!!! Visit Sam’s fab blog for the latest fads and fashions from the catwalk and beyond.

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!
