Happy New Year to each and every one of you! I can barely believe we are already in 2016!
My first post of the year is dedicated to my goals for 2016. I prefer not to call them resolutions, as the word has so many negative connotations attached to it.
Moms. Aren’t they special?
Besides from the fact that none of us would be here without them (literally), I don’t believe moms get enough credit for what they have done and continue to do for us every day. Maybe I am speaking out of turn on your part, but I know I definitely don’t give my mom enough credit.
With South Africa recently celebrating 20 years of democracy, and the elections coming up in 3 days, the subject of politics is all around us. I’ll let you in on a little secret: I am 24 and voting for the first time this year (cue your disgusted faces). I know, I know.
No, I have not abandoned or forgotten about you; the truth is I have been felling very uninspired in my writing lately (Kind of ironic, given the name of my blog). I’m not sure why – nothing has happened or changed in my life (maybe that’s why). Anyway, here I am.
Good Morning Lovelies,
This is my first post for 2014, so let me start off by wishing you all a very Happy New Year ❤

So, while some of you might wake up super early every day to go to the gym or just to get to work, I’m one of those who wake up around 6:45. This means that, in summer, the sun is already high in the sky, creating very unwelcomed heat. (Cannot deal with being hot. Hate).
So, lately there’s been a lot of ‘taking stock’ going on in the blogosphere (Yes, I just said that). Basically, it’s stepping back and taking a look at your life right now, taking stock of yourself in the current moment.
I read some other taking stock blogs, such as this one by my friend and fellow blogger Sam, and I really liked the idea. It kind of reminds me of the letters my friends and I would write to each other in primary school. Being the child at heart that I am, I took up the challenge eagerly. Continue reading
So I’m sitting on my bed with my laptop handy, getting ready to watch some New Girl. I am accompanied only by the sound of the rain outside, which happens to be one of my favourite sounds in the world. So much so that it inspired me to do some writing for the evening, which you are reading right now…..
Pluviophile (n) – A lover of rain; someone who finds joy and peace of mind during rainy days. May as well just call me Pluviophile from now on, maybe Pluvi for short? Continue reading
Lately I have found myself saying more and more “I wish I could but I don’t have time today”. Then I read a quote about time, which I can’t remember to the word but it was something about time being something that man has created. Something about animals not having schedules and frantically crazy weeks and months.
This is so true. Continue reading
