What I…


What I know is that we are in uncertain times at the moment, and it’s important to stay positive. While this is a lot easier said than done, I know that it needs to be done. I recently read an article on staying positive and not losing your cool when it seems like things are falling apart and what I know is that we need focus on the good things; that laughter is the best medicine; that positive self-talk is huge; and that starting each day with positive thoughts is a must.


I am a walking contradiction, while I love being busy, keeping my mind active and travelling the world, there is nothing I love more than curling up on the couch with my Husband and binge watching some series or a good movie. At the moment we are loving Schitts Creek and After Life.


There is nothing better than a good murder mastery and a thriller. I love to read books that are beautifully written and emotionally intelligent. When I read a book, I get emotionally invested in the characters so I love to read books that have clever plot deliveries and genuine shock. I haven’t read a lot this year, but so far I have read Friend Request by Laura Marshall and at the moment I am reading The Woman In The Dark by Vanessa Savage.


What I want is to create a space on the internet to inspire others. I love sharing knowledge and if I have something to share that would be helpful to others then I want to do that. Blogging has really made a positive impact in my life, and it’s a hobby that inspires me to be creative. I often hear people saying that they would love to start a blog or start a new venture but they just don’t know how to start, and that’s where I want to come in and help.


Mom jeans! I am definitely no fashionista (even though I wish I was) and my style is very simple and I rarely wear things that are out there. I love a good pair of mom jeans and a baggy T. Every now and then I do throw a dress into the mix but I will always come back to a good pair of stretchy jeans.


More time. Apart from creating content for Tyla van Til, I work full time for a Marketing Tech company, run a side hustle and am launching a new Wedding Blog and Directory in the near future. I have so many great ideas to grow my brands and expand my content but I do not have enough time. I also just need a decent cup of coffee right now.

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!
