Personal ramblings, inspiration and favourites!
My friend started a really brave new business venture called Lady Fay’s Boudoir. It’s an online store that sells sex toys in a classy and elegant way – their point of view being that just because you are sexual …
I am back online – with my new revamped blog! What do you think of it?
Sorry that this process has taken much longer than anticipated…but I have discovered that this is the case with most things… over the past 3 months I feel like my life has been turned upside down, inside out and shaken all about! I am only now starting to feel steady again and thus ready to take the first tentative steps into my new future. (more…)
A little melancholy today as it is exactly 1 week since Robert went back to Texas and just 1 week left before my best friend and pet, Katherine departs to London to work and live there
~ Please come back SOON, both of you xxx
Hi Everyone, happy 2013!
Sorry I have been so bad at blogging the last few weeks, but it has been a non – stop parade of parties, events and celebrations on this side. (more…)
Sooo happy that Robert will be arriving today in Cape Town to spend his first summer Christmas with me, my family and friends in South Africa!
~ It’s going to be the best holiday ever! xxx
Home Sweet Home, after 6 months I am back home in Cape Town! Excited for beach, wine and friends – not in that order!
~ Also super happy that my baba will be here in 3 weeks to spend the holiday with me
I fell in love with these beautiful rainbow coloured trees in Seattle – they were all over the city and looked like something out of a fantasy movie! The colours went from deep and neon greens to pinks, reds, oranges and bright yellow – ah heaven!
This is just a sneaking little video I took of Robert coming down the slopes. Unfortunately it’s not very exciting because it’s the end of the circuit so it’s just the last stretch that I managed to capture, but still think it’s pretty cool.
I discovered this health bar here in America, the first thing that caught my eye was of course the fact that my name was in there: LARABAR! But then after trying some of them I completely loved it! Original …
TODAY is Robert and my 2 year anniversary. Best 2 years of my life. I love you so much my baba. Thank you xxx
Today is my dearest sister’s birthday – whoooop! Girl, this is your last 20s birthday and I really hope that your day has been everything you wanted it to be! It breaks my heart that I’m not there to celebrate with you on this special day, but know that I am thinking of you non stop and missing you up a storm! I love you so much and treasure you in my life – thank you for being such an amazing friend, I am truly blessed to know you.
P.S I have previously posted about Megan and me getting tattoos here – so you can read more about it.
Today I would like to wish my beautiful mom a very happy birthday. I love her so much and wish with all my heart that I could be in Cape Town to celebrate with her! I miss her more than words can say!
So lief vir jou mamma! xxx
Today is the birthday of my most favourite person! Happy happy birthday my baba!
May this year exceed all your wildest dreams, I just know it will be your most awesome year yet! I could easily ramble on about your amaziness and my wishes for you for days, but I will spare the people that and simply say that I love you and will continue to do whatever I can to make you feel special and loved every minute of the day!
Congratulations my engel!
I have never warmed to the idea of running, I just couldn’t see why people liked it. About a year ago I don’t know what came over me but all of a sudden I wanted to start running. Of course first thing I did was buy some fancy running shoes and get my running pants and tops etc then all that was left was the small matter of actually starting to run. Easier said than done I tell you. (more…)
Today is exactly 1 year since my dad passed away … I can’t really believe it’s been one year already … it feels like 3 or 4 months at most. I think me moving to Texas and the year being so busy has made it just fly past.
I feel like my life completely changed that very sad day and things will never be the same, which I know is obvious but also so weird because so much stays the same but with such a big component missing it’s sort of surreal. I still catch myself in moments where I think “AHH I have to tell pappa about this book or movie or place etc” and then a second or so later it will come rushing in like a punch in the stomach that he is gone and I can’t share this with him.
I miss him so much every day, especially during my time here in the USA because I know he would’ve been the best Skype buddy! My mom has gone from barely being able to switch on the computer, to a little IT genius who does video Skype with me every other day, but I just know my dad would’ve been so brilliant at it. I also wish he was here to give me advise … he was always a very keen traveler and encouraged any kind of broadening of your experiences and I think he’s input would’ve been a good perspective.
I am so grateful that he got to know Robert and spend some proper time with him, it does make me sad to think of all the bonding that they have been deprived of but I know my dad really liked and approved of Robert and knew that I was in good hands.
Not a day goes past that I don’t think of him and am impacted in some way by his memory or the thought of him not being a physical presence at some of the bigger milestones still ahead of me … getting married and having him walk me down the aisle and playing with his grandchildren, I think he would’ve made such a good “oupa“, it breaks my heart to think they won’t know him, although I will of course tell them all about him and all the stories he told me.
Anyway on this day I felt I just wanted to share my thoughts…
Ek mis jou pappa, so baie, altyd xxx
Ag just a quick post to show off the flowers that Robert got me today, this is the first flowers he has ever bought me and especially on a day like today it has more meaning than ever. I love them and I love you.
Robert belongs to a Crossfit gym here in Deep Ellum and him and all his friends are obsessed with it. It’s basically weight training, Olympic lifts and some cardio, not really my cup of tea but it is increasing in popularity here in Dallas with more Crossfit gyms opening everywhere.
Here is Robert and some of his friends, Patrick and Brian doing lifts.
I have the sweetest boyfriend. In my rush to get to the airport in NY I forgot my new cardigan and scarf in the cab! I was very upset. Then yesterday Robert arrives at home with a brand new grey cardigan that he bought for me to make up for the one I lost – mwah!
