She loves all things food and is an amateur chef who loves to bake, cook, eat and travel.

What I Know:

What I know

We travel not to escape life, but for life not to escape us” (anonymous). I am grateful to have had a few opportunities to travel abroad and to experience what different cultures are all about. Travelling gives my life a sense of purpose, humbles me and just puts what’s important into perspective. I only have one chance to live the best possible life I can live and I plan to fulfil my dreams.


What I Love:

What I Love Collage

I have a complete obsession with all things food. Whether it’s cooking up a storm for friends, baking my favourite cakes, eating out, trying a new product or indulging in the local cuisine abroad. I’m game.

My husband. I am so fortunate to have married my best friend, travel partner and the person who makes my heart skip a beat. He supports my ideas, goes out of his way to spoil me and his eagerness to be more than ordinary inspires me daily.

My fur babies. I currently have 2 Chihuahuas and a Rottweiler that bring constant joy into my life. There is no better “pick me up” after a long day in the office and coming home to their warm welcome.


What I read:

What I Read

I don’t spend as much time reading as I would like to but when I do its most likely a Maeve Binchy Novel.

I am to no surprise addicted to cookbooks. I often go to the nearest charity shop and pile in as many recipe books as I can and then spend hours browsing through all types of interesting recipes.

When planning to travel abroad I go a little nuts. I spend hours online researching absolutely everything about the country we will be visiting.


What I want:

What I want

There are so many things I could list on here in terms of kitchen equipment, future travel plans and life goals. What I want most of all is to run a little something with my husband so we can spend our life doing what we both love.


What I wear:

What I wear

I’m not quite sure what my style is called but I enjoy a variety of styles and colours. My go to would possibly be a pair of high waisted skinny’s, vest, denim shirt with sleeves rolled up and a pair of soft leather ankle boots.


What I need:

What I need

Time. There are just not enough hours in a day. Most bloggers work full time and I am no different. I would love to eventually turn my passion for blogging into a permanent reality but for now I cherish the time I have to spend sharing content with my followers. There is nothing as exciting as planning what I’m going to make, how I am going to present it and reading peoples comments after they have tried my recipe.

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!
