After our daughter was born we gave up London life and returned home to work for ourselves, be closer to family and live the dream… Then when the Bug was 2.5 years old my soulmate aka Baby Daddy and I tied the knot. It was a perfect day with our closest family and friends.

Unfortunately life isn’t always perfect, nor is it easy.

My husband and I work full time running BrandLife, a BTL marketing and production agency based in Cape Town. As someone who has high expectations of myself and everyone around me, the challenges that come with being a new parent, a new marriage, a new business venture and life in a new country can be pretty exhausting.

I am constantly making promises to myself that I will eat healthier, drink less alcohol, exercise more, be a better mother, wife and business partner… some days I manage it but mostly I don’t. Instead of feeling guilty over my many shortcomings, I try to live by the philosophy that we are born to be real, not perfect.

I am very fortunate to wake up to this awesome view every morning. I love staring at this beautiful mountain and reflecting on life. It’s my meditation.

I try to remind myself daily how much I have to be thankful for. Of course there are still times when I am convinced that the universe has a personal vendetta against me.

This is my life. Real and uncensored.
