SCHOOL HOLIDAYS: FIXES FOR YOUR DILEMMA NEXT WEEK

As much as moms have a love-hate relationship with school holidays, I rejoice. No traffic between 7h00 and 8h00 on the roads. No road rage from sleepyhead mommies in PJ’s with bed hair.

I AM A VOUCHER KIND OF GIRL. ESPECIALLY FOR VALENTINES.

Groupon may have left the country, but I have definitely become a voucher kind of girl. While Groupon made friends with bargain-seeking clients (who mostly stuck around for the one promotion) and made enemies of suppliers who were hung out to dry after massive discounts, there is another voucher scheme going.

HOW TO BE THE BEST FATHER XMAS EVER.

In an age of less is more, I am still astounded by the number of friends who rent storage for the one-half of their possessions that don't fit into their house. I bow deeply to the Millennials who have a pack-up-and-go lifestyle, and I get really grumpy at old school corporates who do not understand… Continue reading HOW TO BE THE BEST FATHER XMAS EVER.

If you are feeling the start of Spring, which is only two weeks away, we have a… Continue reading SPRING HAS SPRUNG. OR HAS IT?

On a cold and dreary day like today with temperatures carelessly hovering around the six degree mark, a Spa seems to be a really nice place to work. Surrounded by soft music, beautiful fragrances and people talking in low whispers as to not to disturb the peace, beats any other office environment hands down.
