What I….

One thing I have learned while progressing through my twenties is that I know exactly who I am. It makes life so much more enjoyable and just plain easier. I have learned how to appreciate all the little things in life and in turn, it has made me a much better person.

Dachshunds (my dachshund is called Scamp), rainy days, coffee, fresh doughnuts, sweetpea flowers, crème caramel, the colour purple, my blog and Cape Town! I grew up in Kimberley and moved to Cape Town when I was 16. I can’t imagine living anywhere else.

For such a long time I only read textbook because I was continually studying something part time. I constantly have to remind myself that I am actually allowed to pick up a “normal” book. At the moment I am trying to get through The Help because I refuse to watch the movie before finishing the book. I know I am very late to the party. I don’t really have a preference for any type of genre – I like anything from 1984, The Great Gatsby, The Secret Life of Bees, to The Valley of the Dolls.

There are so many things that a person wants in life, but I really am at a point where I am so blessed that I feel selfish thinking about wanting anything more than what I currently have. I think mostly I just want to continue to be happy and continue to be the person I am.

I am not a follower of the latest trends at all. I am a jeans and t-shirt kind of girl. If I could get away with it, I would probably want to live in PJs all day. I do occasionally like to dress up a bit and wear heels, but I feel most comfortable in pumps, tshirt and a pair of jeans.

Oh, need is just a strong word. But I will take it very superficially and say that I need to travel. I truly do believe that travelling enriches a person so much. I haven’t had the opportunity to travel overseas yet but I know it is something I will definitely want to make it a priority in my life.

Kathryn Rossiter

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!
