What I… Nikki Smal from Nikki and Nicholas

Today I’m pleased to be sharing my space with the lovely Nikki Smal who blogs all about her family life as mom of baby Jordan, dog mom of Banjoe and wife of Nic over at Nikki and Nicholas. They call themselves artists, homemakers and best friends which is so sweet. I’m sure you’ll enjoy getting to know her, so read on….

What I…

Know, is that I am so blessed to have an incredible little family. We are happy and filled with so much love. I know that it is a huge blessing to have a healthy and happy baby and we are so grateful for that. I know that things always work out the way they are supposed to and I know that I need to stop trying to control everything and let go a little bit more. I know that my husband loves me and I am so grateful for him and I know that I can NEVER have enough beautiful home decor items. I know that life is not easy but I know that we create our own destiny. 

Love, my little boy Jordan. His face melts my heart with every smile. Our bulldog, Banjoe. he is so full of character and love. My husband whom is so talented it makes me feel sick sometimes. I love our friends and their constant support and humorous ways. I love traveling and I love that there is so much to see in the world. I love ice cold Savannah lights and I love rustic pizza. I LOVE braais. I love cheese rolls especially when they’re freshly baked. And I love peanut butter toast with extra butter. How has this turned into an answer all about food? I love food.


Read, Not a huge reader and mainly read baby food recipes these days. I read a few blogs and online magazines and that’s about as far as it goes. I do not read my horoscope. Ever.

Want, For my baby boy to be happy, safe and loved always. I want a solid family foundation forever and I want a warm and cozy home filled with lots of love and all the pretty things. I want a whole kitchen filled with Le Creuset goodies. I want a gorgeous new couch and a pretty chair that swings from the ceiling. I want to always be financially stable and I’m happy with just that. 

Wear, Red lipstick when I go out. Otherwise, jeans, t-shirts and leather belts. Easy, simple and practical. Heels? NEVER.

Need, To have a sense of security and a home to call my own. I need my family. I need to be outside a lot and I need to go to bed before and during the week. I need to blow dry my hair when I wash it. I need to be organized. I need a diary and I need my laptop. I need laughter and fun and I need a good glass of wine every so often. I need to take tons of pictures and videos, I need memories.

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!
