Opinion: What Christmas has come down to

Ok Christians, please bear with me on this one. The intention of this post is not to offend anyone. My family and I celebrate Christmas – in fact I was born into a Christian family so this day has always been a big deal for us. I am however on a different spiritual journey (story…

Opinion: Parents, it all starts with YOU!! Put a stop to all this evil.

These past few weeks have been the scariest since that time I discovered I was going to be a young parent many years ago; particularly for us women. Women abuse would be an understatement in describing what’s been going on recently in South Africa; I’ve actually discovered a more suitable term for these evil acts…

Still to come…

Heita fellow Africans! I know I have a bad habit of posting once a year but I’m really trying to get better, your patience is required… all 4 of you. So after publishing my last post, On Racism I got quite decent feedback ranging from questions seeking clarity on feminism to others questioning my opinions…

Opinion: On racism

Opinion: If it no longer serves you???

Askies but I don’t entirely agree with such quotes and here’s why… A few weeks ago I attended a funeral in my hometown. The deceased was someone I knew my entire life so you can imagine the reunion with childhood friends and old neighbors. Ok I’m going to try and keep this short. So after…

Event Review: Eugene Khoza’s Back!! Khoz He’s Still Got It…

Eish, couldn’t resist…hahahaa….lame aker? Anyway, on Saturday my friend Nipha and I, braved the Joburg cold and set off to go see Eugene Khoza‘s long overdue one-man show, Never Ready at The Lyric theatre by Goldreef City.

What’s been cooking? New love got me…

Tjo I haven’t blogged in a minute yerrrrr! I can’t even tell you why; but I do know the relationship between my couch and I has grown, thanks for your prayers. So I’ve sold my hair salon (story for another day) to a much more focused, highly skilled, less cluttered wonderful lady whom I know…

11 Must-Knows

Here’s a few things I feel every grown South African must know… Your height & weight Seeing that I’ve stopped growing taller and know my height off the top of my head and always make it a point that I know how much I weight. Not for vanity but health reasons. I can forgive you…
