About Us

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.

Why I love Blogging

Technology has advanced so much since I first started this blog. Back then Facebook was the rage and the other Social Media sites had not even been thought of yet. While I love technology and how creative people are, there is something special about still being able to sit down and blog. You connect differently with people and share a part of yourself with them and often, in return, they share a part of themselves. So, if you’ve been with us for a long time, thank you for being a part of our journey.

Blogging allows me 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 and I guess that is why I became a Web designer and Online Strategist. The day I shared this recipe for Jungle Juice, I never knew beneficial it would be to others, I only knew how much it helped me, a very tired new mom. That is what it is all about – sharing, learning, supporting each other! I appreciate the love, support and advice I have received from readers all over the world.

I love my family, even though we make mistakes at times, we love each other and we never give up! 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.

What type of Blogger am I?

I talk a lot about our time together as a family, I guess that makes me a Mommy blogger; but I

will also talk about the fun things we make, the places we explore and the food we create 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 am also 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.
