Anxiety Anonymous

ME_196_AnxietyAfter I recently spoke out about my personal battles with anxiety, so many of you reached out and sent me your stories. All I could think of when I was reading them was, “it’s so comforting to know I’m not alone” and “I wish everyone could read these messages”. So with the permission of many of you who sent through your struggles, I bring to you this post, aptly titled Anxiety Anonymous, in the hope that you find some of the same strength in solidarity. You are normal, you are strong, you are not being dramatic or oversensitive and your anxiety is valid. (more…)

A Contact Directory of Where I go & Why

_MG_0245

To answer some of your frequently asked questions, and to support a good couple of local businesses here in Cape Town, I’ve decided to put together a beauty, fashion, fitness and lifestyle directory of where I go and why.

The Art of Being Good at Caring for Yourself

IMG_1089-Edit copy

There have been many times where I’ve fallen into a little rut where I was feeling like all my time and my life, in general, was being poured into my work and home life, and like I wasn’t doing nearly enough for myself or taking proper care of myself. It doesn’t help that I work from home and can work from my PJ’s if I want! We all go through these patches of self-neglect no matter what your lifestyle is like.

Becoming The Woman I Wanted to be

IMG_0671-Edit 

At the beginning of this year, I was browsing online and stumbled across Diane von Furstenberg’s book, The Woman I Wanted to Be. Until now, I still haven’t read it, but the title alone had me asking myself, “what kind of woman do I want to be?”, so, I wrote some things down. The woman I want to be is kind, uplifting, creative, innovative, strong, compassionate, patient, unbothered by opinions. She has nothing to prove, no time to waste on things like gossip, she takes care of herself, values her health and gets along with everyone.

I then asked myself, “how do I become her?” (more…)

The Mna Nam: My Stylish New Way To Save For Pampering

IMG_0024-2

It goes without saying that self-care and pampering can cost a pretty penny. How often do you go and spoil yourself only to feel a little bit broke afterwards?! Or how often do you neglect some of your appointments because you ran out of money? The latter is definitely my downfall, but recently, the coolest accessory known as the Mna Nam landed on my desk and may just be the solution to my little issue!  (more…)
