Happy first year

Happy first year mom and baby. First time mom, surviving the first year abroad is not only my personal experiences but the voices of so many other mothers that have daring taken on the task of having kids far away from home. So yes, we all are superwomen, whether you are close to family or not. The exception here is that we have to do without that teeny bit of help when it is needed the most. Exhale mom. You're gonna be fine.

Favorite festive treats

Favorite festive treats bring back so many memories of my Childhood Christmas. No our Noël experience in France has been somewhat different and sometimes challenging, but we remained optimistic as this season allows you to be. The smells of Speculoos spiced lattes, Nutella filled crepes and glue wine. When it comes to celebrating a French Christmas I have it pretty down to a T for this year to come. Come and read a bit more and get a few ideas for your Christmas table.

Visiting Magical Brugge

Visiting magical Brugge was certainly a beautiful traveling destination. This enchanting little town brings all the warming things into one. Good food, coffee, chocolates and an awing view to boot. November was a great time to visit since it was not that cold or too busy just yet. Traveling with a baby certainly made things more challenging, but so worth it still. All things considered, it was very, Lekker indeed!

Dressed in LORAINEROUX

Dressed in Loraine Roux gives you a closer look of the fearlessly stylish brand of Loraine Roux, The LORAINEROUX Collection. One word comes to mind when I think about this woman - exceptional. Since I have known Loraine, she had done things with excellence. It is no wonder that this lady of valor has started her very own fashionable clothing brand. I am was so happy to see that she even extended her graces towards the breastfeeding mothers out there, because let's be honest, not a whole lot of fashion houses caters for this market. Not only are her breastfeeding dresses beautiful and stylish but timeless as well. Here is a closer look at her current range as well as her new spring range that was launched this past week.

Hazelnut jam buttercream cake

HAZELnut jam buttercream cake is quite a mouthful to say and to enjoy because there is no taking small bites of this delicious cake. I made this beauty for a baby shower that was supposed to take place but instead the little princess made a surprise entry right on the day of the baby shower. Hazelnut cake was quite fitting for the lady in pink because she was given the pretty name Hazel. What are the chances right? But the perfect way to celebrate was with cake indeed!

Healthy Lifestyle with Nutritional solutions

Healthy Lifestyle with Nutritional solutions. To keep a "regime" going whilst pregnant is quite a hassle, constant cravings or horrendous nausea can hinder your appetite quite a bit. Not to mention postnatal dieting is nonexistent for a couple of months. Grabbing literally anything to fill the gap in between changing nappies and feeding...This can be seriously difficult to get back to your prepregnancy weight. Luckily I did a personalized DNA testing to help me choose the right foods to keep extra kilos at bay, thanks to registered Dietitian Donna van Zyl. Located in the Freestate, Bloemfontein. Here is my experience from her expert advice and a nice recipe to try out at home.
