Red Lippy Love, Little Dancer & Xenophobia – #LittleLoves

Well the kids are back to school, the sun is shining, I’ve been busy planning out and working on the garden… yip Spring is definitely in the air! Here are my #littleloves from this week πŸ™‚


This gorgeous post over on Charlotte’s blog: Write like No-ones Watching .. She’s picked out a few of her favourite H&M Home range stuffs and I’m in love with them ALL!!! How beautiful are those cushions? That rug? That copper lamp thing? Eeek..

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.


I’ve lost Β 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.


Β Heard

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


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. Β 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. Β My post ‘REFUGEES’ is still live on my old blog here. It’s worth a read. You will need a tissue πŸ™

    THE SMOOTHIE!! Amazing.
    I’m totally shocked by what’s going on in South Africa. That is the most horrendous thing. The hatred and inhumanity is just unbelievable – it’s so scary to think that this is going on in our world, isn’t it? I’m sure more so for you when it has been your home!
    Beautiful little dancer – she looks so graceful! πŸ™‚ Have a lovely weekend sweetpea xx

      I know… it’s absolutely heartbreaking! My mom is visiting there at the moment and she says it really is scary. The immigrants are starving and it’s inhumane what is being done to them. Can you imagine if it happened here???! It wouldn’t be accepted by the locals at all which is the most upsetting thing! Thanks so much for stopping by, have a FAB weekend! Kerry x

    That fruit smoothie looks incredible, I feel inspired. It’s so lovely that your girls have a passion, and she makes that position look effortlessly easy, though I’m sure it isn’t…! Hope you have a good weekend xx
