5 Things I Learned This Week

January 14, 2018

It’s been 731 days since I’ve had a break. Yes, you read correctly. Two years and 4 weeks have gone by since I was physically separated from my computer. I haven’t had a weekend away or even a day trip to rest and heal my soul. Its been go, go and go some more. With a job in Social Media, it’s easy to log onto a device and start working from the minute you open your eyes and I do that.

Technology also accommodates communication at any hour of the day. I receive queries, messages or calls from 7:00 am until 10 at night. It’s insane and I’ve allowed it. Well, no more. I’ve been sucked dry and have nothing more to give. So here’s what I learned this week.

5 Things I Love This Week

January 5, 2018

‘5 Things’ is something I want to try out this week. Its intended as a quick hitter because no one really wants to read long stories on a Friday. Let’s see how this pans out.

You may not know this yet but I acquired Bio-Therapeutic South Africa as a client in May last year. It’s a revolutionary skincare brand which has literally taken my skin from ugh to wow! I won’t give you a full rundown of the brand and what its done for me just yet but be warned! There are loads of reviews coming as I’m now using a full suite of products. Keep watching this space. For now, here are the products I used for a BT shoot and the little stories attached to the 5 Things I Love This Week. You cool with that?

My New Years Resolution is to be less perfect

January 3, 2018

My new years resolution is to be less perfect. Oh, the arrogance in that statement! Now before you go all WTF on me, hear me out.

Ohh firstly, Happy New Year my darlings. How was your festive season? As you can see I did a little work so welcome to my new look website. Its still very much a work in progress as I need my developer to return from holiday to fine tune and make pretty so this will have to do for now.

And here in lies the explanation to my New Years Resolution.

My interview with Grant Davison on HCSVNTDRCNS.com

August 31, 2017

I had plans for Women’s Months. Big plans. I wanted to adopt a ‘No explanation needed’ attitude, start saving for a holiday and buy that ever-elusive nude trench coat. I also wanted to raise the profile of women who inspire me. You know, take-over-the-world kind of stuff.

Well, August flew by in haze. What happened?

I’m still working on saying no without feeling guilty, still hiding from my credit card statement, and that trench has yet to find me. The empowering women bit is a little more interesting.

No haters allowed at The Hide Out Cafe

August 26, 2017

As you’ve noticed, I resurrected my blog last week. (Again!) It seems all I ever do is apologise to you for my long stretches of absence. If you think I’ve used up all my nines lives and not deserving of another minute of your time, I will understand. However, I would prefer that you didn’t.

If you must know, I’ve been trying to carve a career as a social media consultant. It’s been tough! especially as I’ve had to take a serious cut in income. While most would concur that money can’t buy happiness, a woman still needs to pay bills. Shopping, for anything barring essentials, has had to take a back seat. Way-aaay back!
