I am so sorry about that! I am super excited to share this lot with you though! Hope you enjoy, let me know if you try any of them and what you think…
Starting with the most important: Skin care. Because it doesn’t matter what you put on your face to pretty it up, if the base coat (your skin) is not clear and glowing, well then nothing will look all that good, will it?! Continue reading “Flavour of the month | Beauty. Skin. Hair”
It was a different Valentine’s for me. Waking up without my favourite person lying next to me was not the best feeling; Justin was in JHB on a business trip. We are seldom apart from each other, so it stung a little waking up on the “most romantic” day of the year alone. Continue reading “Our Valentine’s day in pictures”
I was so excited when the lovely ladies at de Charmoy Estate invited me to enjoy and review their Sugar & Spice Spa. To be very honest too, though, I was also a little nervous, and I’ll tell you why; Continue reading “REVIEW | Sugar & Spice Spa”

If I’m honest I am blessed with a generally happy disposition, so most days I am in a happy place and space and feel love all around me #rosetintedglasses . I won’t say that I wake up happy… because that would be an absolute lie. Continue reading “5 steps to lifting my spirits when I’m low”
So in November of 2016, Justin and I whisked ourselves away on a Babymoon prior to our lives becoming that much more crazy by adding another little Fourie-tjie to the world!

According to a study into the psychology of hair color, “Blonde is actually seen as the most covetable hair color among women, since it’s rare but not quite as polarizing as red. And yes, it’s true: Blondes really do have more fun (or are at least seen that way, anyway). Research shows that those with light hair are perceived as more bubbly and open—and sometimes needy. ”
I have been just about every hair color you can imagine, and I can say without a doubt Continue reading “REVIEW | John Frieda Sheer Blonde”

As of 8.30pm tonight (26 July 2017) I’ve completed a 3day juice cleanse. I’m so proud of myself because gosh it wasn’t easy. But jeepers it was worth it!!
I was so excited when @hip.and.fresh asked me to try their cleanse and 14day eating plan. I’d had my sights set on doing one since I was pregnant with B, and now that I was no longer pregnant or b/feeding I was ready… or so I thought! In hindsight it may have been wiser to have waited until after my babe had passed this awful sleep regression stage… but… then again, maybe not… read on to see why.
ᴅᴀʏ ᴏɴᴇ: I sailed through day 1 of the cleanse. The excitement of finally being on a cleanse, coupled with the intrigue of tasting every different (yummy) juice, kept me going.
ᴅᴀʏ ᴛᴡᴏ: day 2 was not cool. I woke up after a disastrous night with Brooklyn, feeling exhausted, deflated, and with no energy whatsoever. I had no idea how to face the day without my trusty cuppa. Once I was up and about I was fine… but not great. As they day progressed my headache became nearly unbearable. By 1pm I had no choice but to take a nap. 20minutes later I woke up feeling much better, but still not amazing. I slugged through the rest of the day and bed/bath routine, torturous as it was with 3 kids 😜. As soon as they were down I jumped into bed. My body needed it. It was crazy to me how those refined fats, sugars and false stimulants could cause such a build up. And their exiting my body was painful! 😫
ᴅᴀʏ ᴛʜʀᴇᴇ: day 3 was nothing short of incredible. From the moment I opened my eyes I felt amazing. Even though my night was as bad (if not worse) than the night before, I felt good. Great even. Dare I say ᴇɴᴇʀɢᴇᴛɪᴄ 👯
All without caffeine 😮 I know right?! By 8pm I’ve normally lost most of my personality too, yet I’m still feeling strangely energized. Mind blown 💥. @hip.and.fresh delivered me a box of frozen juices (6 per day), 3 soups and 3 detox teas, as well as an awesome (post cleanse) 14 day whole food meal plan created by dietician Danielle Oldfield. The juices were all absolutely delicious and the soups were scrumptious- and huge portions!! Having done a juice cleanse before, I really appreciated that this one allowed me a warm soup at dinner, as well as half an Avo at breakfast and lunch. It did not help though that I had to unclench my juices from Jackson and Jordan’s little paws 🤗 they LOVED them!!
I’m feeling amazing and I hope to continue the clean eating as much as possible. And one thing is for sure, I’ll be ordering weekly juices for the boys from @hip.and.fresh – what better way to get them to have their daily dose of veggies and fruit?!
