Dalton and Bloom

Dalton and Bloom flower courses

You know how sometimes you sit around and think about how you would like to do something different, something a tad out of the ordinary, something that has nothing to do with your everyday life?

I’m always so keen to get stuck into projects or activities like that, but the time comes and goes and then before I know it January has turned into October, I’ve eaten my body weight in Kit Kats and life just goes on.

Design Quarter – Art of Experience

August 20, 2019

Every now and then it’s so nice to find an activity to do that requires nothing but your face, your imagination and perhaps a friend or two.

I was told by a friend of mine that The Design Quarter in Fourways holds an art class, or Art of Experience as they call it on the last Saturday of every month, where you simply show up find a seat and then the lovely folk that run it explain what the day’s activity is. It’s set up in the Square so you can enjoy a spot of sun while you let your arty self loose.

Dermalogica Prisma Protect

July 25, 2019

Now, this next post may be a little out of the ordinary for me because I don’t often chat about beauty products, but a while ago I met the lovely folk at Dermalogica who introduced me to their world of amazing products and now I’m hooked.

My Dermalogica journey started with the introduction of their Sound Sleep Cocoon Night Cream and their Prisma Protect SPF30 Moisturiser, which as far as I’m concerned is like magic in a tube.

MySchool MyVillage MyPlanet’s 21 years of Giving Back

February 25, 2019

Last week my friend Jo and I went to visit Cotlands. We arrived with a bunch of cupcakes and spent a lovely morning with the awesome ladies who work there and the wonderful group of kids who fall are under their care a few times a week.

One of the reasons for the cupcakes and the visit is that this month MySchool My Planet MyVillage is celebrating their 21st birthday and in turn have set aside R2.1 million to give away to 21 deserving causes across South Africa. So through this MySchool21 campaign, you get to choose where all this money goes by nominating any beneficiary that is making a difference in our communities and for me, Cotlands was most deserving.

This organisation has always been on my radar, ever since I worked on it a few years back when I was still in advertising and since having kids of my own I can really appreciate and respect those out there looking out for little ones in need.
