I have the best hairdresser and stylist - she also happens to be a very good friend.
When moving back from the UK in 2008, my hair was a mess. I had blonde peroxided layered hair with no volume, felt like a straw and just gross. Stacy to the rescue!

Stacy Shea is one of my besties sister. She started as an apprentice at Scott & Wells, did Saturday hair for all our friends, styled hair at weddings (including mine), worked as a rep for GHD and then a hair extension company before finally deciding to open her own salon.

Stacy is now back in Durban and has opened her new salon:

I could not be happier that my regular lady and special friend is back in town to spice up my hair - keep my blonde looking fab and my hair healthy and shiny.

If you are in Durban, take advantage of her opening specials.

There are so many places in the world that I would like to visit but right now, the top of my list is

All with my favourite man.

Blogtober14: Your biggest fear

Your biggest fear

I have mentioned this in a blog post before - I'm not scared of many things - not scared of lions or elephants in the bush, I've been free diving with sharks, I don't mind spiders and creepy crawlies and I'm not scared of heights or flying etc. But two things that do terrify me are:

Snakes - those slimy, sly, sneaky and super dangerous creatures completely freak me out! it doesn't matter how big or small, thin or fat, poisonous or not - I hate them! And if I see one, I will disappear in seconds - as far as I can possibly run in the opposite direction! 

Death - unfortunately, I can't out run this one. It is inevitable. But knowing that I am going to lose loved ones one day is heart breaking and devastating for me. I cannot bare to think of living life without them... I am also scared of dying myself - I am a Christian and I believe in Heaven but I struggle to grasp the concept of a place I haven't seen or been to...
