    Help Change Lives, One Pack of Toilet Paper at a Time

    Last week, I received a very eye opening press release in my inbox that made me sit up and take notice and it’s my hope you will too.   Did you know that more people worldwide have access to a mobile phone than clean, safe toilets? That’s a very disturbing statistic. 😥 Making a change Baby-Soft 2-Ply, in partnership with WaterAid – have made it easier for us all to reduce this stat and they plan to construct toilets and handwashing facilities through the Toilets Change Lives programme.

    Ever heard of Probiotics for your Skin?

    Have you ever heard of probiotics for your skin? If you have been following along this week, you know I am doing a guided 7 day Gut Reset with Nine Aesthetics and Nourished WellBeing. Tomorrow is my last day of the cleanse, but I was already seeing the effects on my body by day 3, including less bloating and constipation. Then on day 4, the bad bacteria in my gut decided they were not going out without a fight and my skin started to become sensitized and inflamed from all the toxins being released. You see, when your body is detoxing from anything, you’ll likely go through withdrawal symptoms. This…

    #1120under5

    This entire week my social feed has been filled with people talking about #1120under5 – including Nasty C himself! AND EVERYWHERE ELSE… Because Nasty C seemed to be the centre of it all, reports and speculation on social media pointed to an album drop and in a seperate news article a clothing line, but today the meaning behind #1120Under5 was revealed and it’s a very powerful message it leaves you to digest. ”The reality is that 1120 children under the age of 5 die of malnutrition in South Africa every year.” Here is a bit more about the campaign: With October being World Hunger Month, Add Hope, KFC’s national feeding…

    {Vegan, Dairy Free} My Mini Oreo Cheesecake

    Today’s recipe is my Mini Oreo Cheescake that’s Vegan and Dairy Free. When someone says Cheesecake, Cashews don’t usually spring to mind as a core ingredient. However the cashew nut has long been used to create dairy free desserts, because of the fact that when it is soaked and blended it creates a silken kind of cream cheesy texture. Because of my FODMAP diet, I try to avoid cream cheese, so I have been experimenting to get the the consistency of a cheesecake made from cashews correct. The flavour just wasn’t what I wanted and tasted quite bland the first time round and I was getting frustrated having wasted a…

    My Favourite South African Blogs

    Today, I am writing all about my favourite South African bloggers. What’s a Blogger? When I started in PR in 2011, bloggers were kind of still new-ish to the world. PR peeps were still trying to understand how we could work with them and if our clients would understand their importance. I remember being fully invested in learning everything I could about them and had asked my AD if I could do a few months of research on these bloggers and report back to the team. So it began, and the first person I approached was Shaney from You, Baby & I. We went out for lunch and chatted about…
