KHAMA RHINO SANCTUARY

July 19, 2018


Just outside of Serowe in Botswana was one of the most beautiful experiences we’ve had so far traveling Southern Africa – the Khama Rhino Sanctuary. It’s a wildlife project set up in ’92 to assist with the fast-pace diminishment of the rhino. What they have done for the species in this magical place truly brought me to tears. To see how the government has directed its military resources to the conservation of an almost extinct breed of animal was truly an eye-opener.

SKIN UPDATE

June 26, 2018

I like to change up my skin care routine, A) because I like to try new things and B) I feel like my face gets used to products and then they just stop working. Which is wild… but dermatologists say it can happen. Skincare can become ineffective after a while, but everyone is unique and you’ve got to do what works.

PLANET

June 23, 2018

As much as Summer gives me positivity and makes rising early easy, these past few weeks of rain reminded me how depended we truly are on water. Yes the drought has created an incredible awareness in Cape Town for the conservation of our water supply, but it has also made me think of our planet. And how the seasons are so vital to the ecosystem. A set up so ingrained in our planet it will continue with or without us, but while we are here inhabiting this world we should at least give it the best fighting chance. Global warming first made serious news 30 years ago today, what have we done so far? And are all the pasts predictions coming true?

It’s coat season and I am so prepared to unpack the layering essentials from the storage. Do you guys pack away summer and winter clothes? I literally don’t have enough closet space to keep both all year round, but the mission is overwhelming and I wish I had an Instagram worthy walk-in cupboard. But the reality is I either do another sale/ throw out/ giveaway or continue to pull out creased crumpled bits of clothing that don’t even have their own hanger to live on.

BIEWDOUW AGAIN

May 14, 2018


Biedouw valley, the perfect escape from Cape Town. We keep going back because it just doesn’t get old. Signal-less it really is the getaway you sometimes need mid month. The boys love to go riding, but I happily set up camp and read my book while keeping an eye on the potjie. I always find reflection an instant source of anxiety, like a beat-up of why you haven’t done what your set out to do, yet. But with a change in lifestyle and work especially I have learnt that things take time, even more so when you want them to be perfect. So sit back sometimes, and enjoy the nature, the beautiful flora and the loved ones you get to see sans cellphone!
