 SO PROUD of our @MyPlayersRugby t-shirt range, in aid of the #PlayersCharity, available at @mrpsport stores & online! Get your kit on, become part of the team, help the #PlayersCharity give back to worthy causes in our communities 🇿🇦 From cooking dinner for homeless people in Port Elizabeth to taking kids from a children's home for "dads & dudes" haircuts - the week before father's day - South Africa's pro rugby players were out in full force in 2016 to show their softer side through the MyPlayers Charity initiative by donating nearly half a million rand of their own income to causes they care about. MyPlayers is 100% owned and managed by South Africa's professional rugby players, collectively. The main aim of the organisation is to manage the players' collective commercial and industrial rights. In 2013 the players also created the Players Charity, to donate a portion of their income to charities of their own choice, in their immediate areas. Help us help more people in 2017 by supporting the sale of this range! #EatSleepRugbyRepeat  Just harvested some cherry tomatoes & thyme, so I'm using a great kitchen wizard tip from @KyleBrown (which I learnt on an upcoming episode of #BuiteDieLyne): Roast tomatoes, thyme, garlic abd with chopped chillis (I don't have fresh ones, so subbed it for chilli flakes & a Cajun spice blend) with olive oil in the oven. He then keeps this mix in a jar in the fridge, ready to add to a variety of dishes as needed. Thanks Kyle!
 The sun is shining.  I get to make TV again today.  And my husband's reply to my new sunglasses (just bought!) was "very nice - but you can pull anything off..." ❤️#Gratitude Want to be happier? Ask yourself: What am I grateful for, today?  When someone else's happiness, is your happiness, that is love. Today marks the first 6 years of this adventure called marriage, here's to at least 60 more with my favourite person on earth!

Bintan Top 10: Thieving monkeys, trapeze swings & bottomless cocktails

Sep 19th, 2016 TRAVEL! 10 min read

As you might’ve noticed from social media, Club Med invited Richard and I to check out their Bintan Island resort, a gorgeous tropical paradise an hour’s ferry ride outside Singapore. As far as breathtaking beaches go, Bintan is right up there with Thailand’s beach meccas (Koh Samui, Phi Phi, Phuket) and Indonesia’s more well known beach destination of Bali, but it has an even more favourable spot on the…

My Mauritius Tips

Feb 17th, 2016 Uncategorized 4 min read

Last year, we got to discover the magic of a ski holiday with Club Med and in 2016 we changed it up, by opting for a beach escape in stead. I’d like to let you in on why we will totally do it again, how to know if this is something you’d enjoy & what to do when you’re planning a visit. Oh, and my dear husband made a…

(not kidding #JulianCalendar) Well, since Richard & I worked over Christmas & New Year,  we’re taking our end of year holiday this week & starting 2016 on February 1st. This is, of course, also…

Behind The Scenes On My Latest ‘rooi rose’ Cover Shoot

Sep 28th, 2015 Uncategorized 2 min read

I’m all about spreading the word. Hard news, rugby news or the latest meme – my job is literally to NOT shut up. To keep communicating. To find content and tell people about it. So, when a magazine approaches someone like me with great news, on the condition that I keep it a secret, that’s basically torture. They actually make you sign a contract and everything! 🙂 Nonetheless,…
