Fixing my face with stuff from The Beautiful Store

I fell in love with the Skin Creamery organic skincare range at Kamers and then I discovered that I could also buy the range online at The Beautiful Store. Skin Creamery Everyday Cream When my glass container of face cream ran out, I got a new bottle from The Beautiful Store. The Skin Creamery everyday cream is so amazing for my skin. I use it day and night. Because it’s actually an all-over cream, I also rub it into my hands when I go to bed. And while we’re on the subject of Skin Creamery, you really need to...

Chasing down my running mojo

Oh hi dear blog, long time no write. You can always tell I’m struggling with something when my blog is silent. Apart from pure busy-ness, this time my problem is my running mojo. I’ve been struggling for months, and it’s really getting me down. After the hamstring debacle solved itself, my foot decided it doesn’t like me. Apparently I have plantar fasciitis. Meh. It’s crap. I’m in constant pain. It’s OK when I’m running and if I’m wearing running shoes, but other than that I hobble around like an old lady. I haven’t been struggling alone, if that’s what...

A day out at Cradle of Humankind

My cousin stayed with us for a few days, so we did a few touristy things while she was here. On Monday we drove to the Cradle of Humankind. She hasn’t been to Johannesburg in years, so the trip was a good opportunity to show her and her son a few great reasons to come back. We started the trip at the Sterkfontein Caves and then after a picnic lunch, we drove to Maropeng. It’s definitely more cost effective to buy a double ticket and spend the day in the Cradle of Humankind, than splitting the trip. It was...

Moosette and the onesie for the new baby

I’ve just had a moose and a onesie made as a gift for my sister and her hubby. You see, they’re having a baby in a few weeks time and they call the baby “Moose”. Now a baby item with moose detailing is really, really impossible to find in South Africa. It’s not the most obvious cute and cuddly animal and you definitely don’t find them in Africa! So after thinking about what I was going to buy them for ages, I had a brainwave. Get something handmade! The joy of being a blogger for 10 years is that...

Cinderella Kids at Peoples Theatre

On Friday evening, Connor and I went to watch Disney’s Cinderella Kids at the People’s Theatre in Braamfontein. We were invited to attend the opening performance of this gorgeous play that is on until the end of July. It was a media event, which is why I was allowed to take photos. In fact, I triple checked with the PR company that evening. I’m sure she thought I was a little mad. LOL! If you haven’t been before, the Peoples Theatre is a children’s theatre. It’s not exceptionally big, so no matter where you get to sit you’re not...
