27 Things I learned in 27 Years – Life Lessons

So yesterday was my birthday… I am officially 27 years old and you know what, it’s not that bad after all. I must admit though, I spent quite a number of endless nights wondering if i’m on the right track; whether my goals are still in the picture and actually still active, and just wondering about my achievements and accomplishments thus far. 27 years is a long time and though I shouldn’t concern myself all that much – especially because […]

Books we read in June – 2017

Witnessing the love that my daughter has for books is just one of the things that still sweeps me off my feet without a doubt. Especially because I never used to like reading myself. It’s not something that came natural to me. Granted, I was never read to as a child, but after 3 years of practicing with my daughter, I have come to actually really enjoy it. Each month we go through quite a number of books. Some are constant favourites […]

Honestly, I laugh it off because truly the fact that we’ve been together for 7 years and still aren’t married really doesn’t bother me. What bothers me though is the way society – or maybe just some people […]

Simple Father’s day gift ideas

WOW, I cannot believe that it’s already almost Father’s day! Feels like just yesterday when it was Valentine’s day back in February and I had no idea what to buy for my boyfriend. They say old habits die hard but this time I may have proven this saying wrong. Normally I am one to wait until the very last minute before shopping for gifts. Not by choice but simply because I almost always never really know what to buy – […]

{Win} Yummy Granola Bar Recipe with Kabrita instant full cream goat milk & GIVEAWAY (Closed)

Ever found yourself eating anything and everything during the cold winter days? Well, you are not alone! One of my biggest struggles during winter is eating healthier foods and snacks. I am – for lack of a better word – constantly in a state of hibernation in winter and I tend to not spend too much time worrying about what i’m eating. After all, I’m too busy worrying about getting cold. This year however, I am trying to make a […]
