vegan flapjacks

This year I’ve tried to be a little different in the way I eat. I decided that I would become a vegan/vegetarian. Before everyone bashes me down, just don’t. Its one of those new years resolutions that i wanted to challenge myself for and see if there are health benefits to it and also sneakily…

tswaing crater

Its the second month of 2018 and that means, the second hike needed to take place. A few weeks ago, a few of us loyal ( to our new years resolutions) soldiers decided to going to the Tswaing Crater hike located in the very hot city of Pretoria. The drive there seemed to be longer…

galentines day

So Valnetine’s Day for me is just known as one of those days that singles out all the single people. Whether you’ve never had a boyfriend/girlfriend, recently broke up with them or just always find yourself watching “Valentine’s Day” alone in your bed with ice cream and some yum popcorn, this day is just not…

smoothie bowls

The new trend that makes fruit and vegetables look like a delight to eat. This hot new way of eat all your way into a healthy 2018 has been my favorite and I’ve definitely hopped on to this band wagon. Firstly i will just be posting my “smoothie bowl essentials” and then posting 3 of…

parklife

So Angus and Julia Stone finally came to South Africa and damn what a way to start the year off and end the first month of January. Parklife made the announcement last year and and 2 days after that I bought my ticket before i came into January broke and sad. The day started off…

hennops hiking trail

So its only been a few days into the new year and I’m already feeling slightly more active and healthier than i was last year. During the heat wave in which Johannesburg is currently experiencing a few friends and i decided that heading off to Hennops for a 10 km hike would be a fantastic…

so 2017

Can i say for one, this year has definitely been better than 2016. Less breakdowns, more sass and i finally got some goals that I’ve been saying every year. Instead of focusing on the things that i didnt accomplish this year, I am gonna be going through the 12 months of the year and reflecting…

I’m 21!

I’ve been 21 for a while now – ten days now to be exact. I’ve celebrated being 21 even before i was 21, when I turned 21 and a little after I turned 21. Its always times like these when I am truly grateful for my family and friends that i have made and that…

mud in october

Oppi Koppi Music Festival – usually known for its dust and heat decided it was gonna be a little different this year. Instead of dust there was rather a shit ton of rain which meant mud and shongolos (which resulted in me crying and having my heart beat faster than it needs to). I cried…

coconut toasted marshmallows

Yay! This is my first recipe ever posted and its about damn time! Saying that I’m a foodie and then not posting anything that i have made is rather sad. So with that being said i started off with trying to make some marshmallows. The inspiration really came from working the French patisserie, called Paul….

playing tourist in the north of portugal

Luckily for me, I was able to have a sneaky look at what the North of Portugal was like. Oddly enough it was very different. The people are still just as friendly but it’s so wonderfully green and natury and majestic that I was left in awe. I got to meet a little old Portuguese…

lets get lost in lagos

The title perfectly describes my adventures in the South of Portugal. From using shower gel as a body cream, basically falling in every little city I visited and getting hit on by all the golden oldies. I spent roughly 3 and a half weeks laughing till I couldn’t breathe with Keanu, Dino (Keanu’s brother), their…
