KIEKIES – NO. 6 – Kirsten Rickert

January 26, 2015


This is the Instagram account of Kirsten Rickert. She has two daughters that are probably 2 of the most beautiful faces I have ever seen. This lady takes such amazing photos of them and they are always so beautifully dressed, like characters straight out of a fairytale book. I’m so intrigued by this little family and I just can’t get over how truly magical this ladies work is. I have only just recently started following her, but already she is one of my favourites in my feed.

My Recipes, RECIPES

Pancakes. Yes please.

January 26, 2015



I’m always looking for quick and easy recipes for things that I love shoving into my face and pancakes/crepes is one of them. Shane’s family came over for a quick brunch and a visit the other day and I thought I would try make a quick batch of pancakes. I found a really short and easy recipe online that I used and liked, so here it is in case any of you feel like smashing a stack of pancakes this morning.

Boyfriend jeans

January 20, 2015


So I may be a little late to hop onto the whole boyfriend jean train, but last weekend I went out and bought myself a pair. I’m so used to wearing skinny jeans that I’ve almost forgotten what it’s like to wear normal pants. When I first put them on I felt like I was almost transported back to 1998, I mean they’re not even that baggy, so maybe I’m being a bit dramatic, but anyway heeee. They’re super comfy and I can eat as many of these Boston Cream Cakes as I like and not have to undo any buttons. Happiness.

Nina James takes her first bite

January 20, 2015



Yesterday my Nina James took her first mouthful of something other than breast milk and she absolutely loved it, it was like after every bite she was saying “What is this magic and where the hell have you been hiding it?!”

I’m trying to capture every ‘first’ moment with our little angel face because time is moving so fast, so we filmed this historic moment in our lives, check it out on Tiny Pony, it’s so sweet.

GIVEAWAY: Omega Luxury Mountain Retreat – Clarens

January 18, 2015


A week ago Shane, Nina James and I went to Omega Luxury Mountain Retreat in Clarens for a little break away. We stayed in a luxury self-catering establishment that has some of the best views that I have ever laid my round brown eyes on.

We stayed in one of their one-bedroom cabins, which was so sweetly decorated in such a quirky and fun way. I was so impressed with the way the whole thing was laid out and how much fun they had with the interior. There are 3 cabins altogether, two one-bedroom units and one three-bedroom one and all of them have their own private decks and jacuzzis, which is pretty damn awesome, especially when the sun is going down over these views (to check out the full review on Omega Luxury Mountain Retreat click through to Jobest).

We really enjoyed our time at Omega Luxury Mountain Retreat and I would really like it for one of you guys to enjoy a weekend there too. So I chatted to the owners and they were awesome enough to give me a weekend to give away to one of you guys.
