Hello everyone and happy Monday, today I’m starting a new #lucky_wins giveaway with the lovely ladies from Mungo & Jemima, which I’m so excited to share with you guys.

Last week I got to go on a bit of a shop via their brand new, very cool online store. Their newly designed site has been beautifully curated and so there are lots of super pretty pieces to choose from. I had a look around and then settled on this sweet Selfi Horizon Dress, because I really loved the confetti-like print on top and the light pink bottom half, it reminded me of a glass of ice cold pink lemonade.

And so just like that I went shopping on their online store, and now so can you guys….

All you have to do to enter and win is:

The Power of Words

November 17, 2014


Last Thursday Anna-Belle and I got flown out to Cape Town with Montblanc for the international premier of The Power of Words, an initiative which involves world-renowned filmmakers and young storytellers to interpret the words of a visionary leader. In its inaugural year, the 2014 program honoured Nelson Mandela.

We got to watch 4 very awesome films, made by 4 very awesome groups of people. One of my favourites was one called the Truth Booth – Jim Ricks and Hank Willis Thomas were part of the team that made it. Using this Mandela quote as inspiration: “The truth is that we are not yet free; we have merely achieved the freedom to be free, the right not to be oppressed.” They set up a giant inflatable speech bubble in a few different places of the world and left it for people to enter at their own will and express their idea of what the truth is…

What my Nina James Durrant is like – 3 months

October 29, 2014


Today Nina James Durrant is 3 months old. I was scrolling through my Instagram feed yesterday while I was lying in bed next to her and I was amazed at how much she has changed and grown in such a short amount of time. You know everyone kept and keeps telling me to appreciate every moment with her because it all goes by so fast and before I know it she won’t be a baby anymore, I’m starting to believe they’re right. She changes so much it’s actually scary, sometimes I can see a difference in a day.

So what I have decided to do is document her every few months, write about what she looks like, her mannerisms and just how she changes and grows. I got this idea from a blogger I follow that runs a site called The Stork and The Beanstalk, she has 2 boys that she writes about and I really enjoy her stories and her awesome photos.

Mom’s night out.

October 20, 2014


On Saturday I went to go watch Shane and the boys perform for the first time in literally 8 months. My folks were in town and I took the opportunity to cash in a ‘babysitting card’ and when it’s your mom and dad fulfilling that duty and they probably love your baby more than any human on this planet, including yourself, you know you have nothing to worry about.

My very first Instawalk

October 6, 2014


Yesterday I went on my very first Instawalk with my friend Anna-Belle (who took the photo of me below). We joined a bunch of other keen photographers at Library Gardens in Joburg town. It was a world wide Instameet so there were quite a few people running around with their cameras out. It was so much fun to just explore the city and walk around taking photos of the awesomeness that is Johannesburg. I’m definitely going to be going on more of these in the future and when Nina James is a little bigger, I’m going to scoops her along with me, like my friend Lindi did with her baby Ralph, introduce her to her city nice and early.

Below are a couple of photos I took along the way…
