What I… Miriam from New Kid on the Block

Another international blogger for you to meet today… Miriam is a Zimbabwean student currently studying law at Rhodes. She loves health, beauty and fashion and blogs over at New Kid on the Block to cultivate and refine her writing… She is a passionate feminist and loves wine, coffee and good books….


What I…


I know that God has plan for me, plans not to harm me, plans to give me hope and future. That even when life seems difficult and almost hopeless I should never be afraid. I should trust my UNKNOWN future to a KNOWN God. The only impossible journey is one you never begin, its always possible but not always easy.


My mother, brother, family (including the family I’ve had to choose myself: my friends). I love blogging, three’s just soothing about putting your mind into something and watching grow and blossom. You could never separate me from my coffee add a little whipped cream and you have my heart. I love Instagram, watching non stop beauty tutorial on YouTube. Oh yes and I Love SHOPPING!


Lately my life revolves around school and beauty blogs but I read anything and everything. I find comfort in words, I believe writing is the best way to express feelings and emotions. I read motivational books, fantasy and horror novels and ofcourse 50 shades of grey!



I want to be great at what I do, I want to be a lawyer, to wear a white hat and make an impact on the world (on my Olivia Pope) I don’t want to go with the waves, I want to create ripples. I want to be a part of something great, I want to help women and children that have been disadvantaged by the world we live in . I want my blog to grow, I want to be able to inspire women all around the world in different aspects of their lives. I could go on and on but Ultimately I want to love and be loved, I want to be happy!


Honestly, I spend way too much time indoors in this small little town so I spend a significant amount of time in PJ’s. I cant help it PJ pants I just so comfortable. When I am out and about though I love dressing up, life is to short to be boring. I wear anything I feel comfortable, sexy, elegant and beautiful in.



DSLR camera (Canon 700D). Hi  Mum, hint hint!
Lol I think there is a difference between want and need. I have everything I need, love, family, a roof over my head, warm clothes  and good health and that’s all I could ever need.

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!

  1. Thank you Kathryn for interview and feature. It was fun answering all the questions as well as reading other blogger interviews. Its such an amazing thing that you share your forum with the rest of us. Happy Holidays.
