What I…

I Know that I never stop learning, From being a wife, mother and blogger to my job as a bookkeeper it is always changing and I am learning new things all the time. I have learnt to love the beauty in life and to be grateful for every tiny thing that I have.


I love my little family, my husband and my daughter and the soon to be new addition to our family, I am pregnant with another little girl due in August! My 3rd little child is my Blog lol, I have put so much time and effort into building my little space on the internet that I love so much, I love blogging about beauty products as well as parenting and pregnancy stuff. When it comes to life’s little pleasures I love Coffee, wine, sushi, malva pudding, cute fluffy animals, hot baths and bath and body products that smell nice! I am a complete sucker for anything with a nice fragrance.

Anything and everything interesting! I love reading articles online and other blogs, especially ones that I can learn something from, I find it amazing how there is so much in this wonderful world of ours that we can learn something new every day! I also love horror stories and thrillers!


To feel content and happy! It is such a wonderful feeling to just be happy with where you are in life! I would like to achieve that and also to have my blog flourish this year so I can continue to express myself to the world. I have so much excitement for this beautiful year ahead!


I am a jeans and T-shirt kinda girl! Flip flops every day all year long even in the dead of winter! I love to feel comfortable with what I am wearing. I love bright colors and pretty floral prints and anything grey is a must have.


to learn how to be patient! I tend to get over excited and anxious for things. I need to start learning how to stay calm and realist that things take time.

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!
