Today I am being featured on Becoming you’s What I series – this is a weekly series where Becoming you features the answers from “What I…” questions of various inspirational bloggers and today I was the lucky blogger!
It really is quite difficult to answer questions about yourself but it really makes you reflect on what is important in your life! Here are my answers to “What I”…
I am someone’s daughter, someone’s wife, someone’s mother and a woman of God. That life is too short not to live every day to the fullest.
What do I love? First and foremost my family! I am lucky to have married the love of my life & we are still living the dream after 15 years of marriage! I love life, food, my Lavazza coffee machine, good wine and pink bubbles – I guess the finer things in life! Pretty much anything creative – cooking, art, photography, fashion and writing – anything that helps me express the true me! Cape Town – the beautiful city I call home!
I am a bit of a Psychological Thriller junkie! I have read almost every book, by local author Margie Orford – at present I am reading her newest novel Gallows Hill. My other recent favourites have been – The Help by Kathryn Stockett and I don’t know how she does it by Allison Pearson. I am not big on newspapers or other news publications – I am a bit of an ostrich when it comes to bad news!
This depends very much on the occasion at hand – if it’s during the school week you will find me in practical comfy stuff – jeans, shorts, t-shirts, vests depending on the weather. Pink is my favourite colour – the brighter the better! I believe shoes make an outfit – I love the wedge heels that are so trendy this season. I love dressing up and feeling sexy and sensual – so I need no excuse to get glammed up for an evening out! Locally I frequent shops like Poetry, Old Khaki and usually have success at YDE. I love shopping overseas, as I am a shorty I find it difficult to find pants and jeans that fit me in SA – I love Zara, Top Shop, River Island… in fact I feel the need for a shopping trip this year!
To be loved! To shop! To be more patient – especially with my girls! Nag less! Worry less! Laugh more! Not to care what others think about me and just be myself!
