Read more about the Bloggers Secret Santa and the purpose of this post HERE


I’m a new mom in my late twenties. I studied Journalism at Rhodes and thereafter moved to the UK to begin my career as Graphic Designer. In London I had many adventures, the best of which landed me a husband, and earlier this year, our beautiful baby girl, Addison. After years of ‘um-ing and ah-ing’ about where we’d like to settle, we decided that home was where our hearts were and we recently made the big move back to the motherland! I’m enjoying setting up home at the moment (see blog for updates!) and I love to bake, blog and craft. I love discovering new places, food, products and ideas and you’ll often catch me snapping away on my iPhone camera or with my awesome Nikon DSLR (cant live without either!) I’m a Mac! My blog is about my adventures in life and all the cool things I find along the way – trawling through old blog posts will definitely give you an idea of what my vibe is – have fun ♥

– silver/fake-silver-coloured jewellery (I’ve grown out of it – I wear mostly coppers/brass/fake-gold-coloured stuff, or real gold if it’s going!)
– necklaces – love how they look, but never really wear them
– citrus/fruity scents
– stuff with cartoons on it
– stuff with bling, polka dots or fluff/fur on it

Thanks in advance for spoiling me Secret Santa – hope this post helps :)
