The List

As today marks the 9 year anniversary of my father’s death, this post is to honour his memory. This is a list of things I learnt from him. It would be impossible to truly write a comprehensive list of things he taught me, this list is just a tiny representative. He also taught me how to ride a horse like a cowboy, how to water ski, that travelling is everything and I should take every chance I get to get out there. He taught me how to drive, how to stand up for

“You know those things you’ve always wanted to do? You should go do them.” There are so many things that we could do to give our lives more meaning. So many of us just spend our days between work and home and we don’t really make the most of our lives. As a result, we have no energy and don’t feel like we’re really living and reaching our full potential. One way to ensure that we beat the boredom and make the most of our lives is to create a

I love books When anyone says print media is dying, my heart dies a little too. Of course, as any die-hard book lover would tell you, there is no way that online books will replace the real deal. Is there? There isn’t any feeling quite like turning the pages of a book, or trying to find a comfortable position to lie in while you spend all day devouring the pages of a good old-fashioned book.

So I was thinking about the things I do and the places I go to when I’m having a lousy day and what helps me to get out of the funk.  Over the course of my lifetime this has meant different things some of them are too ridiculous to help anyone on an average day but others you might find useful if you ever find yourself stuck in a rut and need some sort of inspiration.    Travel. See I warned you that this might be a bit ridiculous. There

As the end of the first month of a new year arrives and the second month begins,  I thought it fitting to look back at last year, a time all but forgotten and we swiftly move ahead into 2015. Over the course of last year, which began as a terrible year for me and ended with me beginning the journey of self discovery and self-love and wonder, what have I really learnt from 2014 that I can carry with me during 2015 and help me to live my life more fully.

I love travelling! I think I was born with my passport in my hand and my bags packed. By the time I was 11 years old I had been to Europe 8 times. I had been lucky enough to come into the world as a part of a family who believed in exploring. Although we originally came from Swaziland, my fathers sisters had moved to various countries in Europe, so growing up, I got to visit them. While other children spent their Christmas holidays at home, I was exploring Rome

This is a list, in no particular order, of things I absolutely don’t want to live without. My husband Gerard who is my absolute best friend. There isn’t a nicer person in the whole world than him and I am so incredibly lucky to have him in my life. Good food– I love medium rare steak with chips, oysters smothered in lemon juice and tabasco sauce, sushi and hearty cheese board. My handbag collection – I am an absolute bag lady and love nothing more than extending the collection in my
