Market Vibes

It’s November! The end of the year is nearly upon us and so to is the festive season. With Christmas around the corner, Christmas markets are a plenty. Since I had spent most of October somewhat of a recluse I decided to commit to participating at a few very special Christmas markets. I do enjoy

Authenticity

The past month has been challenging. At the beginning of the month I had somehow found myself utterly lost. After having some incredible adventures in August and September, with the launch of Charlie’s Adventures…in South Africa and book tours both virtually and overseas, I felt I had come down [...]

Behind the screen

September is one of my favourite months of the year because with it comes a spectacular change of season. Spring has officially blossomed. Spring is a magnificent season, flowers start to bloom, the days get longer and animals awaken. In the radiant spring sunshine, I could feel myself awaken [...]

Stop, reflect & celebrate

For me, the month of April, much like the month of July, is filled with moments to celebrate. April is the birthday month of my gorgeous mum and several of my gorgeous friends. This year, April not only gave me the opportunity to celebrate those dearest to me, but it also gave me a chance

Last year one of my New Year’s resolutions was to try something new each month. I was pretty good at sticking to this resolution until mid-year. By that stage I found myself getting caught up in the day-to-day and my something ‘new’ ended up being watching a different cartoon with my [...]
