We started the Family Treasures blog more than 10 years ago after the birth of my daughter. It began as a place to share and connect with other families, moms and dads, grannies and grandpas in Cape Town and beyond. It has been an amazing journey. I have learnt many valuable lessons from my family but also from you.

What I Love

I love that I am able to connect with so many wonderful, good, kind, faithful parents out there through technology. I love technology and how we use it to connect with others (I guess that is why I became a Web designer and Online Strategist). It’s amazing! We can connect, share our frustrations, get advice and share the joys and beauty of family with people all over South Africa (and all over the world)!

For example, the day I shared this recipe for Jungle Juice, I never knew it would get shared so many times, but that’s what it is all about – sharing, learning, supporting each other! I love my family, we’re not perfect but we love each other and that is what matters most! I learn something new every day and I love that process. I love learning how to be a better me. I love seeing my family grow and my daughter bloom in confidence. She is amazing. I knew that from the day she was born. She is a light in our lives. My daughter looks at the world through a different, more beautiful lens – like the time we went to the Scratch Patch.

Mommy Blogger?

I talk a lot about our time together, I guess that makes me a Mommy blogger; but I will also talk about the fun things we make, the places we explore as a family and the food we make and eat – so I guess that makes this an awesome Family, Travel, Food, Craft, Fashion, Beauty, Lifestyle and Fun blog! Interested in working with us? Click here to get in touch. I also am incredibly grateful for the friends who are like family…not even like family, they are family. I love them all so much!


Sorry everyone, I know you would love to see pictures of my dear daughter but I don’t post pictures of her online, you can read more about why I don’t here. You will have to enjoy these images of me, my partner in crime/life/family, my friends and the awesome people we have met along the way.
