Sugar-Free Choc Peanut-Butter Snack

If you’re anything like me, snacking is a regular activity. Some of this snacking may also leave you feeling pretty yuck. Mixed up, unhealthy snacking is not a vibe (most of the time). So here’s a quick  recipe that I adapted from a few other recipes around the web. Oh, and did I mention they […]

Mauritius Photo Diary

I recently visited the beautiful island of Mauritius with my family and it was a welcome break from the extreme cold we’ve been experiencing here in South Africa. We spent our time at a resort on the north-west side of the island, and although it was a bit chilly and wet sometimes (it’s winter there […]

Healthy Breakfast Pancakes

Wellness Musings

I’ve been contemplating whether I should start writing about my ongoing wellness journey for a little while now, and I’ve decided for it – hence this post. I took a conscious decision to take charge of my fitness about a year ago. At the beginning of 2016, I was really ill, and it left me […]

Riebeek-Casteel

Hello After a cold, rainy and miserable week in Cape Town, we were treated to a beautiful, sunny and warm day today. We took a drive out to the quaint town of Riebeek-Casteel off the N7 (in the Western Cape, South Africa). The weather was marvellous, and I almost forgot that it wasn’t summer! We […]
