Homemade Christmas Gifts #4 – Chalkboard Tray

I love this idea (as with all the other homemade gift ideas) but the great thing about it is you can either purchase a new tray as I did or you can upcycle an existing tray that you have! What you will need Chalkboard Paint Old or New Tray (you can use a metal or […]

Homemade Christmas Gifts #3 – Starfish Wall Hanging

I saw this idea on our holiday in Hermanus and luckily we live by the coast and have access to shells and starfish but if you don’t you could get creative and find another theme. I just thought the starfish idea was super cute and would make a lovely gift. Starfish Wall Hanging What you […]

Let your light shine!

Nelson Mandela quoted these words from Marianne Williamson, she said: “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are […]

Pregnancy is not an Illness

Last week, I innocently went to the store to purchase some groceries when I saw it! It was a white bumper sticker with black writing which stated “Pregnancy is not an illness” sitting on the back of a…WOMAN’S car! Women, we are so cruel to each other sometimes. I can only think one of two […]

Quiche in a Mug

Ingredients: 1 free-range egg 1 1/2 tablespoons milk Salt (I like to use herbal salt) Pepper 1/2 crust of bread (those […]

Slow down a little! Enjoy eating.

So, I have been having this feeling that I need to…EAT A MILLION CHOCOLATES AND EVERYTHING ELSE THAT IS BAD FOR ME…and then it goes away. The problem is that since I am on this health kick, there is nothing to binge on in the house and by binge I mean “a period of excessive or […]

Chewing on Muesli

Yesterday was my mother-in-law’s birthday and we met together at a restaurant to celebrate another year with her. My in-law’s are very quick to pick up on things and always leave us in stitches. We were discussing my latest health kick and I was saying how I was getting used to eating Low GI Muesli […]
