Do you know the Muffin Man?

I like things cheesy. How cheesy? Cheesier than a Michael Bolton music video, cheesier than a rhyming Hallmark Card on Valentines Day and cheesier than a Phil Dunphy philosophy on “Modern Family.” Okay, I’m sure you get the picture. Whether its romance, 80’s music or a slice of toast, everything in life is better when…

A lovely bunch of Coconuts

And just like that it was Movember. In case you’ve been living under a rock for the past couple of years, that wasn’t a typo. But for those that haven’t the foggiest clue what I’m going on about, here’s a brief history lesson: The movement that is Movember first began one night in 1999 when…

Zombie

Ever had that feeling when you think you’ve reached the end of a test only to see that the page is in fact double-sided and there’s still more to do? Well, that’s how I felt when I realized I hadn’t planned a post for Halloween (shame on me). So when my friend Michelle reminded me…

The battle of the Big Mac…

It’s often said that we learn something new every day. Whether it’s an entirely new fact that we had no knowledge of before, or a simple “life hack” that makes tasks simpler, better and faster (sorry Standard Bank), what we learn goes a long way and often makes a huge difference to everyday life. What…

Easy, White Chocolate

Yesterday I found my first grey hair. At the tender age of 23. My initial thoughts we as follows: 1) It HAS to be the lighting. 2) I’m way overdue for an eye test. And 3) “Quit playing games with my heart.” I’m simply FAR too youthful (and radiant). And yes.. that was the Backstreet Boys…

(Wo)man Down

This weekend was one for the books. It kicked off with a road trip to the midlands, continued with my sister’s epic wedding that included me catching the bouquet, tequila shots with Aunty Delores (hi Aunty D!) and ended with a Sunday afternoon on the couch. I must just mention that all of the above…

Life’s Lemons

Shit happens. It’s a fact of life and something I learned to accept fairly early on in my childhood when my older sister pushed me off my black plastic motorbike, jumped on it and rode away. It was a hit and run that left me with a heavy heart and mouth full of sand. I…

Let it be Lekker!

I am loudly and proudly South African. Nothing will ever change that. As a female born and raised in this great place, I am aware that no nation is without its setbacks. But that’s not what this post is about. This post isn’t going to harp on about what’s wrong with our beautiful country or…

Livin’ on a Square

It’s Tuesday, and unlike Thug Life Thursday, I don’t have a particularly cool term for this day of the week. Why? For starters it’s too close to Monday and it’s far too boring for my liking. Nothing remotely remarkable seems to happen on a Tuesday (well, not in my experience anyway). So I guess I…

Big Ballin’

Thug life Thursday, noun: A day of the week that allows the white chocolate folk to exponentially bump up their street cred. High-tops are donned, snap backs are snapped and Drake blares on the iTunes of every semi-ghetto pale face. Similar to the observation of every Hump Day, Thug Life Thursdays demand to be celebrated….

A little something cheesy…

In an ideal world, peanut butter would be a food group. There, I said it. Peanut butter makes the world go round, and if you love it as much as I do, then you’ll know that it’s best added to (almost) everything. This insatiable love for peanut butter is rivaled by, wait for it… cheesecake….
