Hi Everyone!I just love a new year because with a new year comes the opportunity to do new things! Deep stuff I know! ???? So I’ve decided to start a new series:

11 Things I Love…

 

 

11 because it’s my lucky number and my birthday is 11 March (write it down, use it, don’t use it).Here I share everything I LOVE whether it’s an awesome new TV series, recipe, app or clothing store or trend, with you!

1.

It was hubby’s birthday and yes I baked!

I may have cheated just a little bit… read: Ina Paarmans CHOCOLATE CAKE ready made mix, but then I made this awesome sauce from scratch, so it kinda balance out?

It’s soooo easy: Melt 3/4 butter on the stoveAdd fresh cream (250ml)Add cacao powder (25 ml)Put in some sugar (250ml) Stir continiously untill all the deliciousness is boiling.

Pour over warm cake and enjoy your moisturized yummy cake!

2.

I actually wore KEEDO when I was little
and now I get to dress my little girl in KEEDO!

 

 

As you know I’m NOT brand obsessed but  KEEDO does give you that something extra…And they have this BIG SALE!!! Minki is rocking her favourite dress…and yes it’s on SALE!

See more pretty dresses on SALE!!!

 

3.

Two of my favourite shows starting at once!

 

 

Wha –haaat??? Bring on the wine!Those of you who read my blog will know…I’m a hopeless romantic, obsessed with The Bachelor and still believing that although none of the girl’s boobs are real their intentions are… ????

 

4.

I’m soooo into America’s Next Top Model! ANTM changed the way I look at models! And it’s just so much fun laughing at their BIG problems while their pouting away in fabulous designer wear! This season Tyra is celebrating all shapes and sizes! You go girl!

***Catch these 2 shows on Channel 103

5.

We went WiLd over the weekend and did a little tubing on the Sabie River!While granny and grandpa watched the kids!

 

It was soooo much fun! Keep an eye out for my TRAVEL post on this crazy FUN activity!

6.

These pineapple gympants makes me HAPPY,(and it’s super funny when Minki tries to eat the pineapples)!

 

Buy it at Cotton On and shop some more of their funky styles here…

7.

I don’t know if I’m just taking a dip after all the Christmas shopping but I’m soooo over buying expensive presents for Minki (AND THEN she always ends up playing with the box)!

What’s up with that???

From now on she’s getting cheap, fun stuff like…

Bubbles…

 

 

8.

I was thinking of selling some of my older clothes… Would you love it, buy it? And where would you say is the best place to sell – on Facebook or Instagram???

9.

Me and hubby are off to play some serious tennis this weekend! This Mama hasn’t hit a tennis ball in quite a while, not to mention fit into my super short tennis skirts – so wish me luck!

 

10.

 

We had the most decadent lunch at Orange Restaurant in Nelspruit. Definitely NOT your average lunch menu (or prices), but if it’s a special occasion (like hubby’s birthday), definitely worth it!Warning: Drinking wine at 14:00 seemed like a good idea, but I was on zero productivity for the rest of the day.

OOPS!

 

11.

OOPS I DID IT AGAIN!

I almost forgot Valentine’s Day is coming up!

If you’re one of those I-hate-valentines-day people – please don’t read my next post!

SPOILER ALERT: IT’S GONNA BE A SPECIAL V-DAY POST: FUN IDEAS, ACTIVITIES AND PREZZIES FOR YOUR PARTNER!

And that’s it! Random stuff whirling around in my brain…

Would loooooove to hear from you!

XOXO

Helene & Minki
