• Paying my debts with Andy Stanley’s Enemies of the Heart

    On Sunday 19 November 2017, whilst seated in 12 C on British Airways flight BA 6240 from Port Elizabeth to Johannesburg, tears streamed down my face as I clutched onto my copy of Andy Stanley’s Enemies of the Heart: Breaking Free from the Emotions that Control You. The seat next to me was empty, and the man in the window seat was captured by the views outside. The man seated across the aisle from me had however noticed my tears and was visibly uncomfortable. I decided it would be best to stop reading¬†Enemies of the Heart, I didn’t have the energy to explain to my co-workers why I was crying…

  • Coffee at Little Angels Review and Giveaway (along with some other goodies)

    I’ll be upfront. I doubt I would be able to do an unbiased review on Coffee at Little Angels by Nadine Rose Larter, the blogger behind the travel blog Passing the Open Windows. Cause I think she is an amazing person and I am fortunate enough to call her a friend. Granted, I had bought an ebook copy of Coffee at Little Angels and read it before I befriended Nadine, so I will nevertheless try to be unbiased. Port Elizabeth Blogger and Author of Coffee at Little Angels, Nadine Rose Larter Coffee at Little Angels review The story takes place in an unnamed small town. Seven childhood friends, who are…

  • JT Lawrence Grey Magic review

    In terms of reading for leisure, 2016 hasn’t been a good year. In total I read a whopping 2 books, hence the lack of reviews on the blog. I read Coffee by Little Angels by Port Elizabeth author Nadine Rose Larter and the new Harry Potter book. This JT Lawrence Grey Magic review will be short, as I don’t want to write about any spoilers (or at least any big spoilers). Due to my reading hiatus, I struggled to get into this book. I literally carried the book everywhere with me, in an attempt to read it. When the cover started peeling and a chunk of pages fell from the…

  • Best White and Other Anxious Delusions by Rebecca Davis

    Rebecca Davis is a South African journalist who has written for various publications, and is known for her witty coverage of the Oscar Trial. When the trial began I first followed Rebecca, Barry Bateman and various other journalists on Twitter. After a while I decided I was too heavily invested in the trial and unfollowed her and the rest of the journalists. This did not last long as I soon followed Rebecca and Barry again, but not the others. Barry provided minute by minute coverage, but Rebecca’s tweets and daily articles were by far the most interesting. When she announced that she will be releasing a book, Best White and…

  • Buffi’s Dress Design: Sew 30 Fun Styles review

    I was given an advanced reader copy of Buffi’s Dress Design: Sew 30 Fun Styles: Make it, Own it Rock it to review. This book is written by Project Runway contestant Buffi Jashanmal from season 10 where she placed 12th. I haven’t seen Buffi’s season of Project Runway, it’s one of those shows that I’ll watch if it’s on, because I can never remind the schedules of any of the show’s I like. I’m not a professional seamstress by any means, but I have sewn some clothing items. Okay, I’ll admit they were for my Barbie dolls, but it counts as sewing right? Buffi’s Dress Design is described as a…
