Watched

Shanah-Dance

I’ve been watching the last few minutes of Tay & Shan’s dance lessons the last couple of weeks.. I’m so super proud of how they are both doing in their dance routines. They dance with such passion and attitude and literally push themselves to the limit. Absolute Proud Mom Moment here.

Wore

I’ve lost  a little bit of weight recently so I’m having a serious I HATE EVERYTHING IN MY WARDROBE PHASE because nothing fits. So I thought I’d show you this super bright red lippy I received in my GlossyBox yesterday. THOSE.FISH.LIPS.

 Heard

I’m so late to the party on this one… but this song is beautiful.

Made

The gorgeous weather over the last couple of weeks has meant that our eating habits have been more geared towards summer… no more stodge, bring on the FRUITICLES!

Frozen black forest berries, yoghurt, a banana and a splash of milk whipped together = one gorgeous breakfast smoothie.

And Lastly

This isn’t a Little Love as such, but more about spreading a little love…. As some of you will know, I’m South African born and bred. The recent xenophobia attacks in Durban have really shook me up. I stupidly googled ‘News on Xenophobia’ and was redirected to the most gruesome, shocking video where they set a 12 year old boy on FIRE because he wasn’t from South-Africa. It’s disgusting, revolting and inhumane. 7 years ago when I lived in Cape-Town, there were xenophobia attacks on the locals.  A friend and I volunteered to help at the camp where the refugees were being held and what I saw there absolutely broke my heart.  My post ‘REFUGEES’ is still live on my old blog here. It’s worth a read. You will need a tissue 🙁

Those are my #littleloves for the week! Linking up to the shmexy Butwhymummywhy as always, click the badge below for more!

Sunday Faves #2: Baboons, Glitter & Scary Dolls!

Every Sunday I’ll be sharing some of my favourite posts from around blogland. Kind of like a mini-pinterest board of my favourite reads from the past week. Sometimes things can get so crazy here online and you can literally have 1000 blog posts thrown at you every single day… So I’m narrowing my favourite few down for you to pick and choose from. Enjoy!

Jess from ‘Let’s do Something Crafty’  made this scary doll bunting which quite frankly scared the bejeezus out of me but how awesome does it look?! Perfect for Halloween! Haha go Jess!

Claire over at The Witt Family wrote a post on her Sunday night pampering essentials… her sweet hubby even sets up the iPad for her so she can catchup on her favourite show while she chillaxes…too cute! She also has a FAB YouTube channel  – check it out HERE.

Lovely Louise from Sprinkle of Glitter is celebrating her 5th blogaversary. She still remains one of  my all time favourite bloggers, Youtubers & people on the planet. Her humour and passion for life will make you all goosebumpy. I love her.

Se7en+1 is a homeschooling Mom of 8 gorgeous kids and lives in my hometown in Cape-Town. (that’s not her in the pic BTW.. lol!!) I stalk her blog often as her posts are super-informative, fun and remind me so much of home. How could I forget about the baboons that used to freak us out and wreck our houses on a regular basis?! Check out her post on the Cape Point trail HERE.
