    Birthday Wishlist 2019 { Beauty & Lifestyle and a Gin List! }

    This year has flown past and we’re already past the halfway mark of the year. Which also means that my birthday is around the corner. The 7th of August is less than a month away. This year around 36 is winking at me and I’m probably on the wrong side of being in my 30s. I’ve had to do lot of reflection this year, but let’s not dwell on that! Let’s rather get to the fun part of this post. As in true blogger tradition I’m going to share my wish/lust list. Just also keep in mind I’m not expecting…

    Bedroom Makeover with Builders {Dark to Light Paint} #SpeakColour

    A couple of weeks ago I wrote a post over here touching down on a campaign I will be doing with Builders Warehouse. I was super excited to finally get to DIY my bedroom into something a little easier on the eye! I’ve been planning a bedroom makeover for some time and I’m ecstatic that it’s finally done. But before I woo you with my before and after photos there are some things I’d like to share with you that I learnt while working on this campaign.

When I got the opportunity to work with Builders on the #SpeakColour campaign I knew the time for change is now. Why do I need a…

    The Big D (D for Divorce)

    Divorce …If you follow me on instagram you will probably know what’s going on in my life. I was at a serious impasse, should I just continue blogging as if nothing happened with my heart or should I pour my heart out and continue from there. I’ve been sitting with this for the last couple of weeks and I haven’t been able to write anything worth publishing. So I guess pouring my heart out on my little corner of the internet might just be what I need to move forward. To be creative again. So here goes. I’m getting a…

    What is PCOS and how does it effect my life?

    If you’ve been following my blog for a while you’ve seen me reference and explain what PCOS is and a little about my symptoms but I’ve never dedicated an entire post to it before. So let’s start at the beginning and have a little intro into what PCOS is. So what is PCOS? What is PCOS? Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a condition that affects a woman’s hormone levels. Women with PCOS produce higher-than-normal amounts of male hormones. So my body has a higher level of testosterone than the average woman which results in some side effects. There is an…
