Oh my word! I cannot tell you how blown away I am by the work that was done at my home recently by the Awning Co. I left for work leaving a naked veranda behind and arrived home to see our outside area totally transformed and framed by the most exquisite awning. The workmanship is flawless, such attention to detail. I was astounded at how quickly the awning was installed. I so love how the awning looks like an extension of our home as apposed to an add on or after thought. I am gob smacked! I can't wait for hot baking Durban days outside sipping something cold under the awning as the kids busy themselves making mud cakes. In the past when the sun beat down we had to seek shade elsewhere. On the flip side when the rain comes down we can now sit tight as apposed to frantically collecting the outside cushions and running for cover. I have visualized myself sitting under the awning listening to the raindrops dripping onto the roof, and now it's a reality! The sound of rain on roof is a nostalgic one for me it takes me back to happy times spent at the farm and at boarding school. It is always so easy raving about experiences like this one, and for that I thank you. www.awningsco.co.za

Hands down one of the best meals I have ever had was at Lupa. Mike and I went for a date and where blown away. I had seared tuna that after every mouthful I gushed, ooed and aaaard. You can imagine my delight when they opened their welcoming doors in my hood,Westville.
There is something extra ordinary about Lupa. There is an energy and vibe that is intoxicating. World class decor, service and chow. Hope to see you there soon.

Dr Neil Cuninghame
Neil has changed my life. I have battled with a sore left shoulder for years, which even saw me having a shoulder operation that did nothing in relieving my pain. Neil had helped me approach the pain from a different angle and the difference is remarkable.

I am ashamed to admit that in my early 20′s I didn't give drinking and driving another thought. I do realise how selfish and irresponsible that behaviour was. I can honestly say that I wont drive after even one glass of wine. It really saddens my heart to hear of the horrific and regularity that drunk driving accidents happen. Please I urge you to go out and have a party by all means but instead of risking your precious life and the life of others rather give a sober driver a ring or call on GOOD FELLAS. They will send a driver to wherever you are and safely return you home in your own car. So no matter if a gathering with mates turns boozy you can let your hair down, pour another drink and depend on Good Fellas. Have fun keep safe.
Anyone that knows me knows I don’t move without my sunnies and trademark thick black spex. You have go and check out the brands they have under their stylish umbrella. What a joy being involved with such a radical brand, beyond stoked!
McCarthy VW Umhlanga
From the moment I met Emma, Dealer Principle at McCarthy VW Umhlanga, I knew we would be friends for life. I feel so at home every time I pop into the dealership and the team is so vibrant, professional and ready to help. With 3 small kids and adventure in our hearts we as a family of 5 spend a lot of time exploring our beautiful Province and I couldn’t wish to be driving anything other then my VW 7 seater caddy maxi — what a ride!
Every single day I start with a Sunlife multivitamin. The whole Thomas family take their Sunlife vitamins religiously every morning and the kids love the taste of them, score!
Being a home owner and spending time in either of the Lightco stores is such a joy. From conventional lighting to bright and quirky they have it covered. We recently had some bright flood lights fitted into our garden and driveway. In the same day I picked up the most darling paint splat lamp for the kids playroom.

After years of positive manifestation and hard work we own our dream home. It is such a comfort knowing the boys in Blue are only a call away.
Fay and I made contact when she did my hair for JHB fashion week. It was wild-bright blue and a Yolandi type white rat tail-super hot. Fay holds a pair of scissors like I hold a glass of wine with knowing, belonging and great ease. I love the way Fay cuts to highlight and showcase my best features.

Tasha’s Fantastic Fudge
Have you ever tasted a piece of Tasha’s Fantastic Fudge? If the answer is yes you need read on no further as you already know the silky decadent ridiculousness that is Tasha’s.
If not treat your lovely self as its the closest you will ever get to the tasting the offerings found inside Mr Wonka’s factory.
There are as you know many different types of fudge on the market but Tasha’s variety and choice leave the rest in the kitchen.
Fudge that tastes of ginger, peanut butter and chilli, coffee, whiskey, amarula, strawberries and cream, chocolate, cherry and nut.…what to choose!?
Then there is the ROCKY ROAD-my husbands all time favourite, in fact if he had to choose between taking me or a packet of rocky to bed to watch a movie I fear for his choice. Rocky Road is a biscuit made up of nougat, fudge and chocolate-pure and utter indulgence! You also have to try the spreadable fudge oooh and the Fudgeskotti which is a butter biscuit with chunks of fudge embedded in the slice of heaven.
I have gushed over PUMA gear in flashy fashion mags for what feels like forever. PUMA has got the most amazing lifestyle range. Have you seen the gold PUMA jacket Jack Parow sports? H.O.T. I have always had my own style and it is so groovy to be connected to a bright and out there brand.
I was recently gifted with a royal blue two piece PJ set from JOCKEY. A soft long sleeved top and long pants. Being extremely pregnant if I am out and about in the world I am in real clothes but if indoors my first choice is my JOCKEY. I absofrigginlootly love them! So much so that if they are in the wash and not ready for a wearing I go into a decline. I have been known to hand wash them myself and leave them out in the sun to dry as to have them ready for the next wear. I now have a grape colour set and a cute blue and red sailor type set. During this last stretch of pregnancy my skin feels like it is burning and having this delicate fabric on my body is an instant soothe.
