About Me

About me

Mama Bear, raising her cup in Paradise.

Welcome to my blog!!! Born and raised in Cape Town, South Africa, now living in Nassau, Bahamas with a bit of traveling and living abroad in-between. After having spent some time in London and Dubai, I moved to Düsseldorf, Germany with my husband in 2013. In 2015 we welcomed our daughter, Miss E. And on 4th January 2020, we embarked on a crazy journey to living as Expats in the Bahamas.

I started this blog back in 2017 as a way for me to get back to writing and I had this idea to 'bridge the gap between my African roots and my new adopted home. But life (and technology) got in the way and my blog had to take a back seat...all the way in the boot of the car. Now, we have sort of settled into our new life on the island, I find myself with time to give my blog more attention.

This blog is being rebooted and I want you, my valued readers to learn with me as I explore the world around me and venture into the 'not-so-great-unknown'. Together, we can learn how to make Rum Cake from scratch or perhaps bake a traditional "Kaapse Melktert".
