Honeymoon in Thailand, Phuket

Honeymoon in Thailand, Phuket here we come. #Phuket #Thailand #honeymoon #destinationhoneymoon #packing #researchWe’re going on a destination honeymoon in a month!! (Yes I know it is late, but to me, it still counts!) And the destination we are heading to… Phuket for 7 days!!! I can hardly believe it!

It will be the first overseas trip for both Wiehann and me, and to say that we are over the moon of excitement is an understatement! (You can tell by all of the exclamation marks right?)

The first question that comes to mind is: “Why didn’t you go right after the wedding?” My answer is simple. We only had enough money to pay for the trip in advance and didn’t have enough left for spending money. The wedding totally wiped out our funds. So we both decided to go a bit later.

The other benefit to me for going on honeymoon later is that we are both rested and will enjoy the trip more. Let me explain: after the wedding, we totally felt exhausted!

The week leading up to the wedding was stressful. (And on some of the photos you can see the fever blister on my nose to prove it!) Everything was under control and I didn’t really have a reason to stress, but I think it came with the territory.  The few days after the wedding we were both recovering and resting. But now we are totally rested and we will enjoy our honeymoon to its fullest!

So the last few weeks, I’ve been researching everything related to Phuket as a honeymoon destination. We are going in August, which is the rainy season, but according to my research, it is still warm and humid and doesn’t rain all day. So fingers crossed we will have some pleasant weather!

The thing that I research the most is “what to pack for Phuket”. Apparently, you need a lot of mosquito-repellent and obviously a lot of sun-screen (Phuket is close to the equator). I don’t know what it is, but mosquitos just love me. I will be in the middle of a crowd and that darn mosquito will find me and leave everyone else alone, yes I am that person! So I will stock up on Peaceful Sleep and Tabard to be safe.

Bucket List for Phuket:

I know we are only there for 7 days, so hoping that the weather plays along so that we can do all of most of these items on the list.

Other things that you might want to know about the honeymoon:

We are staying at Sunset Beach Resort, a resort is a must for a honeymoon right?

We used Flight Centre, a travel agency, to book our trip. Like I said, this is our first overseas trip, and we wanted all the help that we can get.

I will be doing a follow-up post about our packing and organizing of our luggage when we have everything together. I already have a list of to-buys and to-dos. So watch this space

Is there any packing tips that you have for our first international flight. Or have you been to Phuket? I would love to know your thoughts.

As always,

Keep it classy!

 

Wedding Budget Redo’s

What I would have done differently with our wedding budget and planningWhen I did the last post of our wedding budget break down, I thought of the things I would do differently. The one thing that I noticed is that the budget can quickly go out the door if you don’t keep track of the things that you spend money on. And the small things are the budget breakers!

There were a few purchases that I regret. For example, I bought two pairs of shoes that I thought would make great wedding shoes, but I ended up wearing old shoes that I love and planned on wearing from the beginning. Oops!

Don’t get me wrong, I was adamant to keep within our budget, I checked the budget regularly and we paid for the wedding in cash. I am super proud of ourselves for this. We even had money over and we are planning to use it for the honeymoon!

Regrets

Small Purchases 

One thing that I regret is that I didn’t keep track off is the small items. For instance, the stamps for the invitations that I posted. I did in a way keep track of them, but I didn’t put the receipts into my wedding binder. If I look hard enough for the receipts, I will find them.

I also ordered things from Aliexpress, and I didn’t make a note of how much it cost. Aliexpress uses USD currency and the exchange rate changes all the time, so I am not sure what I paid for the items at the time. I know it was so inexpensive though that it couldn’t have broken the bank!

Wedding Binder

I loved my wedding binder, you can see how I put it together in this post, but one thing that I regret is the size. The large A4 binder made it difficult to take everywhere with me. I did take it with me most of the time or sometimes left it in the car if I traveled. But I really wished that I made it in an A5 binder or a book. That way I could’ve just put it in my handbag and take it where ever.

There are a lot of pages in my binder that I didn’t use. Which feels like a waste of paper now. But it did keep all of my information in one place and I knew exactly where to find everything. Which saved me a lot of time to not search through loose papers!

Another tool that I didn’t use is my phone! My phone is always on me, so I should’ve used it as a budgeting tool as well. I could’ve put my small purchases on my note-keeping-app. It wouldn’t have taken me 2 minutes to do that!

Tips for keeping your wedding budget in check:

So if I could give my past self some advice it will be:

  1. Get a smaller binder that fit in your handbag;
  2. Have another file or binder where you file other information (for example quotations; ideas for the wedding);
  3. Update your budget every day, or as often as you can (this one is just a reminder)
  4. Make a note (in a notebook or on your phone) of small purchases if you get home or put the receipt in the binder immediately;
  5. Make a note if you purchased something online, or print out the receipt to put into the binder.
  6. When paying cash, ask for a receipt.
  7. Take the binder/planner with you even if you think you don’t need it.

A few months ago I discovered Alexa Lily, an online shop that sells beautiful planners. And what blew my mind is that they already had a pretty Bridal Edit Planner! This would have saved me so much time and it is the perfect size to put into my handbag! It is basically my binder that I made for myself, just better! So kudos to them for making such an incredible planner!

I don’t regret making the binder at all. It was a lot of fun and I will treasure it always. It is now memory binder, keeping all the wedding planning alive.

This post will be bringing my wedding journey to the end. Now that the wedding is over, both Wiehann and I are so much calmer and are enjoying married life. One doesn’t realize how much stress comes with planning a wedding. But like I said, I wouldn’t have changed anything of our wedding day for the world! I loved every moment of it!

Hattingh Wedding, the best day of our life!

Till our next coffee, Keep it classy!

 

We Said I Do!

We finally said “I Do” on the 5th of May 2018!! The sweetest (and long awaited) moment ever was when the pastor said I know proclaim you husband and wife! Warning This post contains many photos!

Hattingh Wedding, the best day of our life! best moment ever when we said I Do

Getting Ready

The wedding day for me started at 7:00. I took a relaxing bath and then ate some breakfast with my mom and sister. After breakfast, we went straight to the hair salon for our hair. The hair took a bit longer than expected but we were still on time for the makeup girls. We got our makeup done at my Grandmother’s home and we also got ready.

Wiehann’s day started with a bang, because he and my mother in law, sister in law and had to set up the whole reception before 12:30 when he got ready. Afterward, I only heard about all the drama that went on, I was blissfully unaware of it all!

We say ‘I Do’

We said I do in the NG Moederkerk. It was a must for me to get married in this church. I love older buildings that have iconic architectural styles. My theme for the wedding was to achieve a Baroque vibe, but a lot simpler. Such an opulent wedding would have cost us a fortune!  And the church was the closest I could find to this particular style, even if it was built in the Neo-Gothic style. I just overall love the architecture of this church.

attingh Wedding, vows and I do

Interesting fact: the angels that surrounded the pulpit were made in Scotland. The church commissioned six angels but only five arrived. They send two photos of two local girls to Scotland so that the artist can make the angels to look like these girls. The church was concerned that the angels would look too much like European girls otherwise!

Couple photoshoot

After the ceremony, we took the family photos and then we did the couple photoshoot! All of the stress disappeared after the ceremony and we just enjoyed ourselves. Here are some of my favorite photos, but honestly I love them all!

Reception

The food was delicious and everyone enjoyed themselves. We got so many compliments that we had a great wedding and that is all that I wanted! For me the highlight was our first dance because we got help from a professional to choreograph the dance. It turned out beautifully!

Everything is how I wanted it to be. We and our guests enjoyed ourselves. I wish sometimes that we could have the day over. Maybe in 10 years time, we will do a vow renewal and do it again!!! So much fun!

Married life has been blissful, but there are a few little challenges that started to poke out its head since moving in with Wiehann. I thought it best to share these little challenges and the solutions as I grow in my new role as wife and homemaker.

Some of these challenges include:

New routines in the morning and evening;
Cleaning and organizing our new home;
Laundry;
Decorating our home!

My word for 2018 was provided

my word for 2018It has been awhile since I posted, and it is already the second week into January 2018. Which is crazy. But I thought I would share my word for the year today with you and how it was provided to me.  So, grab your cup of coffee and join me for a minute.

I’ve read that choosing a word for the year can really help you in setting and accomplishing your goals. And I also read on more than one blogger’s pages that when they had chosen a word, things in their lives happened that relates to that word.

My word for 2017 was to ‘grow’, but sadly I don’t feel that I’ve grown the amount that I would have wanted to. I did, however, accomplish a few of my goals that I’ve made. Namely to start a blog, saving for the wedding (which I am glad to report that it went great), and I wrote my SACAP exam and passed with flying colors, which made me a Professional Senior Architectural Technologist! Whoohoo!

The festive season was quite hectic and I didn’t give new goals and a new word much thought until the first week of January. And to be honest, I didn’t have a clue what I wanted to achieve this year other than to get married in May! (follow our wedding journey here)

It was Friday night when I went to bed when I the thought of ‘word for the year’ crossed my mind again. But I didn’t give it much thought and fell asleep. Saturday morning when I woke up the first thing that came to my mind was ‘self-love’. That really resonated with me, because like many other women, I tend to put everyone else’s needs before mine. And it doesn’t help that I am a people pleaser!

I thought that I might just imagine this ‘self-love’ intention, but it stuck with me the whole day and questions like: ‘What does self-love look like to me, why do I want to put everyone else’s needs before mine, how do I achieve this self-love?’ tumbled through my mind the whole day.

Ultimately, I don’t think that this word(s) came to me just on my own. I really think that God has placed it in my heart to pursue it this year.

So how does self-love look to you, Nadine? Well, I am so glad you asked.

First and foremost, spending more quality time and being more active in doing my quiet time. I think this is the most difficult to do because Satan is relentless in keeping you away from Him. When you make a plan to spend time with Father, something will just happen that distracts you and you forget to do your quiet time altogether. I intend to do my quiet time first thing in the morning before I touch my phone, I must confess that my phone is my biggest distraction.

The second thing on my list is to ‘love my body’. Wow, that sounded cheesy! But I am created in His image and thus it is important for me to take care of the vessel that He gave my soul to live in. He created us differently and so uniquely, so my body and mind will need different things to be at peace with myself to the next girl.

In order to love my body and mind, I intend to make it a priority to exercise and fuel my body with the right nutrition.  I’ve been following the ‘Tone It Up’- girls’ workouts on and off over the last year. But this year I want to really commit to a morning workout. Working out in the morning motivates me for the day. And it also helps me to not want to eat unhealthy foods that will ruin my workout session.

Keeping up with the ‘love my body theme’. I really want to get into a good skincare routine. I have a skincare routine, but I want to add exfoliation and masks to my routine as well. Occasionally I take a bubble bath and put on a face mask, but if I want to see real results, I need to up my game!

Then I really want to start reading again. I have a few books that I haven’t touched that is gathering dust on the shelf.  Generally, I just want to do more things that I love.

Just in general not spreading myself to thin and trying to please everyone. I know that this is not good for my health, but I just keep doing it anyway. So, I really want to be mindful of how I spend my time. Leaving negative people and talk in 2017.

I know this was just rambling talk, but thank you for sticking to the end! You deserve a medal! Let’s quickly recap my self-love strategy:

Self-love: ‘I am beautifully and wonderfully made’ so I will love my body, mind, and soul! I will stop comparing myself to others and spend more time with God.

Self-love: do things that I love, like reading and baking 😉

Self-love: Avoid negative talk and people and anything that will bring down my happy!

I would love to hear from you! What is your word for 2018 and how do you spend your time to take care of yourself? Comment below to let me know!

10 great Christmas gifts for: Him and Her!

Hi, there friend, welcome to the last day of gift week here on the blog. I thought it best to combine the last two categories to make the theme ‘his and her’. So, without further ado, let us dive into the picks from Woolworths for today.

Please note that this post is not sponsored. I just seriously just have a thing for Woolworths goodies. The opinion of the best Christmas gifts is totally my own! Woolworths have a great range of products to choose from, these are just the ones that stood out for me. 

woolworhts gifts for her

Let’s start with the lady, after all, it is ladies first, right? 😉  Well, I think it is quite easy to buy gifts for your fellow girlfriend, sister and/or mother. But let’s face it, some women are just soooo picky or they already have everything you want to buy them. The easiest thing to buy this type of lady is a voucher. That way she can buy anything she wants or needs. And best of all, she cannot complain about the ‘lousy’ gift you gave her – even if you thought it was the most thoughtful gift ever.

The rest of the picks that I have are pretty generic, but most women like to receive jewelry, a handbag/purse and or perfume.

Rose gold has made such a statement the last year. It has made its way into home décor, jewelry and even some clothing pieces have rocked this beautiful metal. Rose gold, to me, is so feminine. And I would like to have a watch, just like this one. It would match my beautiful engagement ring, perfectly.

Pearl earrings are a great staple accessory for any wardrobe. You can wear it with a casual or a formal outfit.  I like to wear my pearl stud earrings with almost all my outfits on a daily basis. They are a timeless classic. They will make a great gift for that classic lady you need to buy a gift for.

Bangles are another great accessory to have. But I will not recommend it if you work the whole day on a computer. I’ve found that bangles, especially the ones that go ‘cling-a-ling’, just get in the way. Rather keep it to for the weekend. I had to put these stackable bangles on the list. The diamonds are classy and they will perk up any outfit. I would wear them with a cute dress and some heels for date night. Ooh, and those pearl earrings will be a great match!

Now let’s talk about bags…. If you are a girl like me, you like bags. Period. This handbag is a real stable piece for me. The colour of the handbag enables you to wear it with any colour outfit. And it is a blend of casual and formal, which makes it perfect for everyday use.

Woolworths have a great variety of cosmetic bags lately. If you have a friend that loves makeup and you don’t know what to buy her, give her something to put her makeup in! Maybe even add a few makeup brushes. This Flawless cosmetic bag is one of my favorites.

A great gift idea for the girl who travels a lot is a cute and matching toiletry bag set. To make the gift even more special you can buy a bag that’s her favorite colour.

For the girl who loves her coffee, a mug is always welcome. Especially this cute mug with the mermaid tail scales on them. Up your gifting game by adding some rusks, cookies, chocolates or her favorite coffee with the mug.

Lastly is the more the more expensive item on the list. Every single lady is unique, and having a signature perfume that describes your personality is so special. Spoil yourself this Christmas and buy that perfume, you deserve it! I’ve been eyeing Daisy from Marc Jacobs and Be Delicious from DKNY lately.

Let’s move on to the men. I don’t know about you, but I find it difficult to buy gifts for the men in my life.They either have everything they need or have ridiculously expensive taste!

But here is my go-to list if I am not sure what to buy!

woolworhts gifts for him

Let’s start with the accessories. Remember, men do like to have some nice bling as well! The accessory category is especially for the man who is in-tune with his image and knows what he is worth. So why not buy him a nice watch and some cool shades to match? This nice braided bracelet will round off his casual outfit.

If you have a guy that works in an office all day, you can buy him a nice set of new ties. Or anything that will jazz up his suit! Some other suit accessories to remember – tie clip, cufflinks, pocket square and a lapel pin. A nice leather wallet is also a nice touch.

For the man who likes to take care of himself and shave often, you can buy him this nice shaving kit. And to finish it off you can get him his favorite aftershave or EDT! Just like women, men also have their signature fragrances. Just ask him what he is wearing that day and notice if he wears it often. You can never go wrong with this type of gift!

Everyone loves a good braai! So why not spoil him with a new pair of genuine leather braai gloves. And you can never have enough of these enamel roaster pots! They are fancy enough that your significant other can put the pot on the table without messing up your pretty table setting. Win-win!

And if all else fails or you run out of time – there is always a voucher!

Thanks for joining me this week. I really hope you had as much fun reading these posts as I did creating them. Enjoy your weekend!

Till our next coffee!!

10 Christmas gifts for a spa experience at home

Hi friend, welcome back to the continuation of “Gift Week”! Yesterday I shared gift ideas for the person who loves home decorating and today I will share some of my favorite picks from Woolworths for a spa experience at home! These items will make great gifts for yourself or a loved one.

Please note, this is not a sponsored post. I just seriously just have a thing for Woolworths goodies. The opinion of the best Christmas gifts is totally my own! Woolworths have a great range of products to choose from, these are just the ones that stood out for me and what I would like to receive.

woolworhts gifts for a spa experience 

Let’s face it, to book a weekend or day at a spa can be is just too expensive. So rather book yourself a spa evening at home!

First of all, you need the right products. The Love Your Skin range from Woolworths is divine! Wiehann gave my mom some of the products as a gift for Christmas one year and she loved it. I just love everything that is hydrating and have the words ‘extreme moisture’ on them!

Draw yourself a soak-worthy bubble bath with the Love Your Skin Extreme Moisture Foam Bath. While you are soaking treat yourself with a body scrub, using the exfoliating hand gloves and or a shower sponge. And afterward, you can moistures your skin with body lotion or body butter from the Love Your Skin Range. O, and don’t forget about your feet! The Love Your Skin range also have a foot butter.

After you have soaked in the bath and need to get out, reach for that fluffy towel! And no spa experience is complete without a lovely cotton robe and some cute slippers!

Many of these products can be found at your local Woolworths. Comment with your tips and favorite products for your ‘me time’. I would love to hear from you!

7 great gift ideas for decor lovers

Hi friend, welcome back to the continuation of “Gift Week”! Yesterday I shared gift ideas for the baker and the cook in your life and today I’m excited to share some of my favorite picks from Woolworths for decor lovers!

Please note that this post is not sponsored. I just seriously just have a thing for Woolworths goodies. The opinion of the best Christmas gifts is totally my own! Woolworths have a great range of products to choose from, these are just the ones that stood out for me and what I would like to receive. 

woolworhts gifts for the home decorator

These gifts are orientated towards the living and dining room, but these spaces are in my opinion, probably are the ones we use the most. And there is nothing that I enjoy more than a space that is inviting and well decorated. I’ve really been loving teal, neutrals, and gold lately. Metals have made a big statement the last year or so! And I just cannot help but gravitate towards it. I’ve actually bought some rose gold pieces for Wiehann’s TV room. Luckily he didn’t mind 🙂

Aren’t these pillows just too cute! I already have some teal pillows and this one would just fit my collection perfectly. And a collection of throw pillows are not complete without a lovely fur pillow!

When it comes to curtains I like to always choose neutrals. This way I can decorate and change colour palettes without buying new curtains. Because let’s face it, good quality curtains are just too expensive to buy everytime you want to change up the look of your room. I don’t normally like patterns on curtains, but this Damask pattern curtain is just so lovely!

Nice photo frames are all the rage right now! And you just don’t have to use it for photos. You can put a nice printable in it, or use a dry erase marker to write yourself a motivational quote on the glass. This frame really caught my eye. I have a few light wooded frames in my collection, and I do like a nice floral pattern once in a while. This frame is a mix of both – bonus!

I like big and classic decor pieces. This way I don’t have to buy a lot of separate smaller pieces to decorate a space. And I can always add to my collection of decor pieces and don’t have to worry about my space looking dated next season. This vase and hurricane candle holder fit this description perfectly! The teal planter pot will add just the right amount of colour to any space.

No room is complete without a pretty lamp. This pretty lampshade and lamp base will go great together. Just imagine sitting next to this lamp and reading a great book sipping your favorite cup of coffee during the holidays… ahhh bliss!

That’s it for today. Thank you for reading my gift ideas for the home decorator. I hope you’ve found the tips helpful and that you got some inspiration along the way!

Till our next coffee!

Christmas gifts from Woolworths

Isn’t Woolworths the best shop ever?! They just basically have something for everyone! And I think Woolworths gifts are some of the best gifts you can get.

Some people argue that their prices are too high, and I mostly agree with them. But you just cannot deny the quality of their products. One piece of clothing can last you several seasons if you take care of it. And I believe in the saying ‘goed koop is duur koop’.

So, I thought it best to compile a few posts this week that will list a few gift ideas from different categories. Namely: for the baker, for the cook, the home decorator, spa treats, the lady, and the metro man.

Please note that this post is not sponsored. I just seriously just have a thing for Woolworths goodies. The opinion of the best Chritmas gifts is totally my own! These gifts are also a bit more on the affordable side. Woolworths have a great range of products to choose from, these are just the ones that stood out for me and what I would like to receive. 

Woolworths gifts for the baker

Measuring spoons | measuring cups | Mixing bowls with lids | Copper mixing bowl

Marble rolling-pin | Whisk | Cake or cupcake carrier | Smeg stand mixer

I love baking. I get so much joy out of making something that I can share with others (and it is a bonus if they like it too 😉). And what better way to start baking and furthermore enjoy it, than having the right accessories to help you! These gifts will seriously fill the baker in your life heart with joy!

woolworhts gifts for the cook

Serious Cook Aluminium pot | Bamboo Utensils | Mini Scale | Block of Knives | Colander

Bamboo Chopping Board | Measuring Jug with Lid | Copper-plated Grinder Set

Aren’t these products just too gorgeous for the kitchen?! I am really considering getting some of these for my own kitchen – or maybe I should get them all… there goes the budget!

That is it for today, I will be back tomorrow with the gift ideas for the home decorator!

Life Lately….

Life Lately, what I've been upto

So, it has been a minute since I’ve written a post. So, I thought that I should update you what’s been happening in my life lately.

The wedding planning is going well and everything is still on track. Even though it feels like I’ve not done a lot I have been getting some of the little things out of the way. The date is slowly creeping up on us and I still feel there is a lot to do! But like I said before, I’ve done the big things already.

I ordered some wedding related things from Aliexpress so I really hope that it will arrive at the end of this month and then I will let you know what I am planning to do with the things that I’ve ordered. Yes, I know, very secretive 😉

I also finalized our table décor. Mom and I will start soon with the tablecloths. I’ve bought 10.4meter worth of material that still needs to be transformed into tablecloths. Yikes! And I need to find candles for the tables.

I am also still considering having a photo booth. Did you have one at your wedding, and is it really worth it? I am also not sure what type of guestbook I want. Little things that take up one’s time and energy worrying about!

Other than the wedding, my life has been full of work! I’ve had an unexpected number of projects on my plate lately that kept me tremendously busy. Other than work, I’ve been traveling back and forth between Oudtshoorn and Montagu visiting Wiehann and then coming back home.

Blogging really has been on the back burner for too long, need to prioritize it again and start brainstorming content. Want to help me out? Please comment on what you are struggling with at the moment, maybe I can do a post that will give a solution to your problem!

My Favorite Youtubers

Youtube has become an integral part of our lives the past few years. The thing I like the most about the tube is that if you want to learn a new skill, it will probably be there for you to find.
