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 🙁
