  • Inside blogging

    While blogging is always something that I aspired to do when I worked in the PR/marketing industry, I only started my blog in 2013 as a ‘hobby’.

  • Toddler play date in Dubai

Do this when you’re 3-4 months pregnant […]

  • Hospital bag 101

    I had Zay at a hospital in Johannesburg, he was 4 weeks prem and I had to deliver very unexpectedly, luckily my hospital bag was packed (at 30 weeks).   This list is based on a maternity ward at a private hospital in Joburg, South Africa. Packing your hospital bag doesn’t have to be a […]

  • Baby must-haves

    I never thought that I could be so in love with one person until I met him. My life and soul. He is only 10 months old (one month prem) and has taught me so much about life, love and patience! This is my first post since having baby Zay and moving countries! So much […]
