About Me

Hello and welcome to my Blog

I grew up and still live in Port Elizabeth. I am a happy, fun-loving curious person by nature and love my family and friends

I love reading and writing. I read most genres but my favourites would be paranormal romances and inspirational/motivational books. I have mostly started this blog because I love to read so much and want to share my reviews and thoughts with the world or anyone who wants to read it, giving my little bit of input to the world as well as any topics of light that would help and motivate you. I am also an aspiring author, in between reading books and reviewing them, I am writing two separate books, one fiction and one non-fiction. I have too many books and Ebooks, enough to last me probably 2 lifetimes! You can never have enough books... he he

I love all things magical and mystical. From collecting crystals to reading about angels and things of inspiration and motivation. Life is filled miracles and beauty, you just have to want to see them. 

I absolutely love Formula 1 and follow it religiously since March 2012. Still a newbie but learning fast! The closest I have been to a live event at this point is seeing the Malaysia track just after the race this year (2013) out of the airplane window on the way back from our honeymoon in Bali.

Other things I love…
Music: most genre’s, if it has a nice beat and catchy tune I’ll listen to it. Some of the bands I love: Metallica, Seether, Simple Plan, Paramore, Ellie Golding, Pretty Reckless, Passenger, Pink, Avicii, Nicki Minaj, Rihanna and so many more…

Travelling: I love to travel when my budget can afford it. Abroad I have been to the USA, UK, Mauritius and Bali, as well as 2 Boat cruises to Maputo and the Portuguese Islands. I have many places I still wish to travel to: Seychelles, Bora Bora, Spain, Italy, UK, Australia and and and...

Photography: I love photos. I love to take photos (with my Nikon D5000, Samsung S5 mini or pocket camera) and I appreciate really beautiful captured moments.

Daily Inspirations: Daily in the week I send/post out a positive quote of the day. Something to make you smile, think or lift your spirits and put a smile on your face. You can follow me on twitter if you need a little uplifting every morning :) 

Outdoors: I love the beach, going snorkeling, scuba diving or just walk along the shore, as well as camping or going on a exciting 4x4 adventures.

Now that you know a little bit more about me I really hope you enjoy my blog

  4. Your blog is full of amazing things. Nice to hear your thoughts on The Selection. It's not a bad book, just a case of 'what might of been'. Then again, who am I to say? Writers are always the last to find out what they've written.
