ClipinHair Extensions – Quick, easy and authentic.

I have pretty much had short hair for all entire life. For some reason (I think it was an 80’s thing) my parents cut my hair short as a child I have never been able to grow mermaid length hair since. About 10cm past shoulder length is about as much as i’ve been able to achieve in my past 30 years on the planet. I also cut my hair in to a pixie style when Jordan was 2 years old and it’s taken another two (WHOLE) years to grow to shoulder length. I have longed for really long hair for years and have never been able to get it to the stage of being truly happy with it. It just grows far too slowly and heat styling definitely doesn’t help it.

Find what you are *actually* looking for on Spree.co.za #SpreeVisualSearch

Technology seriously blows my mind. Now I don’t go to the mall much because, well, kids and all that. You know. I tend to do most of my clothing shopping, quite successfully, online. I know my size and I have never really had much of an issue when it comes to things fitting. Of course there are certain things I don’t buy online, like jeans, because fit is a serious make or break when it comes to jeans unless you buy a specific brand and you already know your size.

Life in the Smal household.

It’s been a few weeks since I posted on here and truth be told, I am totally okay with that. I went out for drinks with some people after work on Friday (I KNOW.. living LARGE) and we got onto the topic of blogging. You will know that I have always been very true to my belief that this blog is a hobby, something to be enjoyed and not something I have ever wanted to be a slave to. It is not a business, although of course I do sponsored content here and there with brands that I truly believe in and love, I consider that both a perk and a privilege. The point I am trying to make is that I have never wanted to feel life a slave to my own blog. I never want to feel guilty for my lack of communication on here and I live true to that. I don’t post for the sake of being current and I don’t post when I don’t feel like I have something valuable to add. Thank you to all you loyal folk who continue to visit and pop in on the regular. We dig you!

{Superbalist} Keeping your feet warm this winter.

Winter is coming and I couldn’t be more excited. I love summer but I am definitely a winter person. I have always said that I could quite easily reside in London and not look back. Grey skies make me happy because they are so easily accompanied with fires in the evening, hot soup, early morning cuddles in bed, sleepovers in the lounge with the kids, big scarves and layers, beautiful winter boots and red wine. Let’s not forget the red wine.
