I am a mid-20 something South African girl living in a lovely small town called Oudtshoorn in the Western Cape. I am a Professional Senior Architectural Technologist by profession and love all things feminine, pretty and romantic.

Things you might want to know about me:

I love chatting over a good cup of coffee or tea at home, or at a cafe sharing a huge piece of cake;

Nothing beats a good cup of coffee while reading a good book, or a good blog post about renovating a room in the house, makeup or organizing

I love planning everything and making lists, and I become all too happy when I start crossing things off my list

I love baking red velvet cupcakes but have to keep it to a minimum because of my sensitivity to all things dairy.

love chocolate, makeup, handbags, online browsing, beautiful stationery, and getting a good bargain!

How do I take my coffee: Black with one sugar, please…

I am in a relationship with my high school sweetheart since 2008, and hopefully, we will be tying the knot quite soon.

I love high waist ankle grazer jeans; they keep my love handles in place, and because I am so short I don’t have to cut off any of the jeans.

I have never coloured my hair, I am a natural brunette.

I don’t have a cute furry friend because I am allergic to most four-legged pets. But if I could choose a furry friend, I would adopt a Pomeranian doggy. Sooo cute!

I went to Architecture School at NMMU for four years to get my B.tech degree.

I cannot really decide what my favorite colour is because I am drawn to most of the colours of the spectrum, but my closet contains definitely more dark colours, like navy, than pastel and light colours.

Nothing can pick up your day like a red lipstick can 😉

Here on the blog, you will find some topics that are close to my heart. I didn’t want to focus on one topic because as a woman I cannot talk about just one topic over a cup of coffee!  I hope to create a positive little space here on the world wide web for you to visit and share a virtual cup of coffee with me, o and don’t forget the cake!!!

Luv Nadine
