Driver’s License Conversion in South Africa – 2021

Blog Reviews

What an experience! Not a bad one though. I was honestly expecting a horrible experience, but it wasn’t bad at all.  I went last year as soon as my ID came out. That was not a pleasant experience at all, but I am glad that is sorted. Glad that I .

Here they bloom but for a season

Blog

These are words in one of my favourite songs. ‘Here they bloom but for a season, soon their beauty is decayed’ Life really is unfair. A young girl came to Cape Town to study, went missing while doing a simple errand. I was praying .

Please may I have an ‘onion’

Blog

At least that is what I heard. And at the time, my 2 year old was snotty and feeling under the weather and I thought ‘wow, he knows that chewing on an onion is good for him.’ I put it down to my mother having taught him, being an avid believer .

From the heart

Blog

I don’t even know what to call this post. No, it is not a rant :-). An observation more like.   You see, I love writing. In my way, my own quirky, most probably unstructured way. But I have not been writing as often as I would like. I .

Rubybox Review: Tressemme Co-Wash

Blog Reviews

I don’t think I have ever talked about my hair here. Or anywhere for that matter. Not that it is a sensitive topic, I guess I am not really overly into hair 🙂 (Don’t judge or get upset please). I do a lot of my own mixes for body .
