Welcome to June and the first of my 4 part series .... Mind your Style (Styling from the inside out). What do women really want … simple – balanced hormones PERIOD. (see what I did there). Imagine what it would be like to feel consistently the same week after week – screw that hour to hour. Women are the stronger sex, it takes super powers to get through life with a constant barrage of hormonal instability and still somehow be kind, loving and mostly sane.
And yes, I am ve
So, when it comes to fashion I pretty much have always had a sense of who I am and what I like. I sorta always just accepted my eccentricity, my innate desire for vibrancy and the escape that fantasy provides. My eclectic mix of styles, periods, colour and texture follow no real rules just instinct. Maybe I was just born with this confidence, maybe it exists within most children and I just haven’t evolved into your typical ‘adult’ sense of style or maybe it was as simple as
So much for a staycation I ended up visiting Durban over the holidays…eek. Yip travelling on my own with two kids and catching a red-eye flight was well, let’s just say memorable.

Well not quite, but it’s working its magic. Tangerine, burnt orange, rust if you must, hell even a good ole pop of Fanta orange – spells fun; full stop.

It’s super late; my 7-year old’s snuggled up in my bed, the baby monitor is on and the annoying sleep-inducing music app. is blaring in the background. Mr Big is working the night shift again and I can’t fall off to sleep. This year has been just weird so far; I’ve been sick for all of January, in fact so sick that I decided to call it quits on breastfeeding my little guy after 2.5 years because my body was feeling the toll. To make matters worse my heart is sore because I m
