All About Me

16 November 2015|

Another one of these cute but informative All About Me posts that I first read Cindy’s cute facts over at 3 Kids, 2 Dogs and 1 Old House.

1. Are you named after someone?
No one in particular, just a name my parents liked. I have to be honest, I’ve never been a huge fan of my name.

2. When was the last time that you cried?
This morning. There was a fire evacuation at our gym/shopping centre and I haven’t been dealing with fires very well after our trauma!

3. Do you have kids?
I have two beautiful daughters – age 3,5 years and 1,5 years old.

4. If you were another person, would you be a friend of yourself?
I’d like to think so – I like to see myself as an easy going, friendly, sociable, trustworthy and loyal friend who will do anything and everything for someone. 

5. Do you have a guilty pleasure?
Coca Cola and full body massages.

6. Do you like handwriting?
I love it! I think I have a neat handwriting but wish I could be more creative – I need to go on a course.

7. What is your favourite cereal?
I’m not a huge cereal fan – but I do enjoy granola or a guilty treat in Coco Pops.

8. What is the first thing you notice about people?
Their smile and their response in meeting me.

9. What colour are your eyes?

10. Scary movies or happy endings?
Definitely NOT scary movies, I hate them. I am a hopeless romantic so happy endings for me.

11. Favourite TV show?
I have a few – Pretty Little Liars, Elementary, Stalker and Secrets & Lies.

12. Summer or Winter?
Definitely Summer – I hate the cold.

13. Hugs or kisses?
Hugs from friends and kisses from my MC.

14. What is the furtherest you have been from home? 
USA, Bangkok and London – not sure which was the furtherest in distance.

15. Do you have special talents?
I like to believe I have a creative eye for party planning and designing. I can’t sing, dance, draw or any of those clever talents. MC thinks my hidden talent is shopping!

16. Where were you born?
In my hometown in South Africa.

17. What are your hobbies?
I love blogging, socialising, organising and party planning.

18. Do you have any pets?
We aren’t allowed pets in our Estate as it is an eco-estate but I grew up with dogs. Lately I have desperately been wanting a Jack Russell and English Bulldog.

19.  Favourite movie?
The last movie I watched is now my favourite: The Longest Ride.

20.  What colour is your car?
Funny question that because I am currently car-less after our fire. My last three cars were black but I’ve had a reoccurring dream that I die in a black car so my next car will be white.

21. What did you want to be when you grow up?
I always wanted to be a Mom, and then a teacher. My dreams came true.

Why not tell me more about you in the comments?


  1. Oh my gosh I LOVE these posts!! I have actually always loved your name because I thought it was unique! And I'm the same with scary movies -not my jam! Love massages and summer too.

  2. Oh my word, friend – what fire?! Hope all is ok?
    Whenever you do posts like these I'm struck at how similar we are… I hate cereal, and also have a *slight* Coca-Cola addiction! I've never met anyone else who shares this guilty pleasure (or who's willing to admit it anyway… I mean, who DOESN'T love Coke?!) xx

  3. I love this post! I completely agree with your answer to "what is the first thing you notice about people!" It is so true. I also want Secrets and Lies to come back on, we loved watching it! 🙂 Xo, Stephanie
