So it occurred to me that it might be nice to use a Friday to blog about some thoughts that have crossed my mind over the past week. I have decided to make this a standard Friday contribution and it will be titled the same each week and dated for easy reference. The content will differ greatly, sometimes I will have much to say, other times it will only be something small. I will mull over these with a steamy cup of hot chocolate and share them with you. Today I have a lot to say. Read More
I have to tell you all I am completely infatuated with good clothes and when I find good clothes especially those from local designers then I want to tell everybody about them. Recently, I had the good fortune of coming across the local design label “Made with Love” When I bought a really fantastic dress from a little boutique shop in Stellenbosch Cape Town called Lily’s Closet. I have subsequently acquired 3 more items in the range that are going to compliment my growing “new weight” summer wardrobe. Read More
In my quest for finding useful eco-friendly and cost effective products to use in my home I came across the wonder that is Soapnuts. I had a small sample some time back when they were launched here by Fancypants Products www.fancypantsproducts.co.za but in all honestly I only tried them in a few wash loads and didn’t commit to finding out all their potential uses, and there are many. I was recently lucky enough to be blessed with an entire 500g bag of Soap nuts by somebody, to do with as I so wished and decided to give this second try a little more thought. I did what I do best and contacted my friend Google. What popped onto my screen were far many more household uses than I could have ever dreamed. From laundry to hair washing and compost. Fascinating! Read More
Working in the industry I do….. That being the online one I mean, I have come across many interesting natural products and often a few really stand out to me as well worth it. Some cost quite a penny while others cost very little and certainly pack a punch regardless of their seemingly “cheap” nature. Such is the fantastic little all natural stain removal/ bodycare soap I came accross about a year ago. In my neverending battle to find a natural stain removal product that actually worked to take the poop stains out of my kids diapers, I came across this soap and I and many of my customers have not looked back.

So yes a month or two has passed since I last graced the pages of this blog. Well really no excuse, just the usual suspect life getting in the way of time!
In the last few months I have learnt a whole lot of new things about myself. I have also recently actually accepted that there is a whole lot that still needs to change. Read More
