Travel Notes: Oporto, Portugal [2019]

I fell in love with Portugal the moment I set foot in Lisbon and traveled to the Algarve in 2016. The fado music, the smells of food, the humble smiles on the locals’ faces, the passionate conversation that seems like a heated argument but isn’t. The natural beauty that at time reminded me of Cape…

Reflect: PBCS & Beyond the Pill Book Review

It’s been close to 6 months since coming off the hormonal contraceptive pill after being on it for over 15 years. And to be honest, it was the probably the best decision I could have made for my body. From being misdiagnosed with peri-menopause to being told that tracking my menstrual cycle is ludicrous and…

Fuel Notes: My UCook Experience

The Easter Bunny hopped into my inbox early with a tempting offer this year: a R200 uCook coupon and free NOMU Chocolate products. My chocoholic self convinced me and my husband to finally order a UCook box to test for a week. I’ve always been curious about the service but have never been keen due…

Sweaty Notes: PWR by Kelsey Wells Guide Review

Kelsey Wells is a powerhouse. In every sense of the word. Her body is one of the best I’ve ever seen, tantamount to a real life wonder woman. Add the fact that she’s a mom, bring about a whole new level of inspiration with a hint of envy. Her positive attitude is what I love…

Music Notes: Top Albums for 2018

I haven’t written about music in ages and I think it’s about time even though I still feel like an absolute armature. Music has always been my first love and writing about it can sometimes be hard as I am pretty easy to please. I love sharing great music, and making this list was difficult….

After having my Polar A360 for more than 2 years, it was time for an upgrade. I am a Polar brand loyalist as I found their app and devices stable , reliable and tough enough to deal with my training and my clumsiness. When deciding to upgrade, I took into account that running has become…

Sweaty Notes: Fitbands & Thrust by Fit Farm Girl

I love supporting local business as you’ve seen. When Fit Farm Girl launched her Fit Bands range and her product was all over my feed I was determined to try it out, especially when she released the Thrust Barbell Pad. Service and delivery was outstanding and Camella went the extra mile to keep me posted…

Food Notes: Nanuki Brownie Bombs

When Nanuki Bars came out, it was a god sent. A good (and healthy!) alternative to store bought chocolate and of course for those with specific dietary requirements, Nanuki bars are the perfect alternative. The bars are generally a tad bit expensive but have always been a worthwhile purchase, and if you look at the…

Drink Notes: Zooka Kombucha

If you follow me on the gram, you will know that I am a huge ‘booch advocate. This stuff is a great alternative to beer or a penchant for sugary soft drinks. When I won a case of Zooka Health Kombucha, I was ecstatic. Not only was it a brand I have not tried yet…
