    How Uber Eats helped me not FULLY trash my kitchen this December

    This is a little post all about Uber Eats…. Can you believe it – it is already Boxing Day! Christmas was here and gone faster than we could spend our bonuses (not that I get one ha-ha 🤪) So you guys know that I have spent almost the whole of December creating some awesome recipes for my 24 Days of Christmas. It has been such a great challenge – and has motivated me every day to be creative and push my boundaries in the kitchen to create awesome ideas for you. While my recipe collection grows on the blog, my kitchen is trashed in the process. Cyclone Cat You see, I…

    A Malfy Gin Cocktail kinda Christmas ✨

    Today’s the 13th Day of Christmas – so let’s celebrate and learn how to make a Malfy Gin Cocktail. 😍 A few weeks ago, I attended the Mama Meet Up at Craft Cartel, hosted by Tanya of Rattle and Mum and Sarah from Mascara and Mimosas. It was an awesome evening with the ladies and I left feeling fuelled with ginspiration for the blog.   Craft Cartel – Gin Heaven Craft Cartel is a boutique liquor store in Illovo, designed to showcase local and international craft brands in an environment that compliments the bespoke nature of Craft drinks. They also have the BIGGEST selection of gin in South Africa. 😲 If you…

    {Travel} Visit Cathedral Peak Hotel

    Just a four hour drive from Johannesburg, nestled in the Drakensberg mountain range, is the 4-star, family owned Cathedral Peak Hotel. The backdrop of the Cathedral Peaks and ‘bell’ blow your mind everytime you look up.     Three years ago, we stayed at a hotel in the area called Didima – which is also a great place and easier on the pocket. One night, we took the 5 minute drive to Cathedral Peak Hotel for dinner and enjoyed ourselves so much that we promised to go back. So, on my Birthday weekend, I was spoiled and we did just that – and what a beautiful place to celebrate turning the big…

    Keep Smiling and Win with Blanx Power White

    Imagine if every time you smiled, your teeth got a little whiter? Well Blanx just took us to the year 2026 and made that possible. Blanx’s new White Shock toothpaste is activated by sunlight or artificial light – so the more you smile, the better it works! You’d expect that for a claim like that to work, the toothpaste would be packed with peroxide, but Blanx doesn’t contain harmful bleaching agents… 🙄 “BlanX White Shock Toothpaste is ideal for those who don’t want to use harsh bleaching chemicals or undergo expensive treatments. It is safe to use daily and easy on the gums – making smiling the best choice for whiter teeth, through…

    Buy a Lindt Teddy Bear to donate a school bag

    I received a drop of these cute little Lindt Teddy Bears a few weeks back and I wanted to share the campaign with you too. When you are Christmas shopping and looking for stocking stuffers, just grab a Lindt Teddy Bear. If you purchase two LINDT TEDDY BEARS and enter the unique codes on Lindt.com, LINDT will donate 1 school bag to a child from the SOS Children’s Villages South Africa. (From now until 25 December 2018.)     I love it when brands make it easier for consumers to help out and this really is a simple campaign mechanic. Plus these teddies make the cutest stocking filler! Say Hello to…

    {Gluten Free} Chocolate Birthday Cake and 30 things I now know!

    Ok as of this moment – I am officially 30 years old, so I made a Chocolate Birthday Cake to celebrate. Before I get to the chocolate cake though, I have to take a moment to acknowledge that this is happening.   I am 30. That feels so incredibly strange to type out. “Hello, my name is Cat and I’m 30 years old.”   I think it isn’t really the number that scares me, more so the fact that I feel as though I celebrated my 21st just a few years ago. It was Arabian Night themed and the Disney lover inside of me made sure that everybody dressed up.     This…

    What do IFBB Bikini Competitors eat?

      Ever wondered what IFBB (International Federation of Bodybuilders) eat? Or how they get ready for competitions? I chatted to Logan Leigh Rix, who you might have spotted on the cover of this months Fitness Magazine…   How did you get into this industry?  I got asked this question the other day and that’s when I realised that there was never a conscious decision, it just sort of happened. I really enjoyed gyming and living a healthy lifestyle, and because of that I decided to compete. It is still a shock to me that people have taken an interest in me and I feel extremely lucky and grateful to have…

Well, today is the day that Global Citizen is handing out tickets to some of it’s winners… What’s GC all about?

    {Gluten Free} Baking with Ruby Chocolate

    Ever heard of Ruby Chocolate? After dark, milk and white, ruby is the most uncommon chocolate discovery in 80 years. That’s right – there hasn’t been a chocolate discovery this ground breaking for over 80 years! Towards the end of 2017, Swiss chocolate maker Barry Callebaut announced the discovery, as well as the fact that his company would be producing this fourth type of chocolate. Joining dark, milk and white, ruby has now entered the chocolate family, meeting many chocolate lovers excitement and of course, sceptics criticisms – (many believe white chocolate isn’t even chocolate and they classify ruby’s strange taste in the same league as white). For Chocolate Lovers, we…
