• Get Your Own Goals

    ”The greater danger for us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short; but in setting our aim too low, and achieving our mark.” – Michelangelo After not being able to ignore this ‘trend’ any longer of hash-tagging almost every picture with #goals, I feel like it is my responsibility to address the issue from where I stand on this and fill you in on why it is disheartening to read those comments on not just my content, but comments on many other influential people’s content whom I follow.

  • Greenpop – A Treevolution

    So as many of you might know, we recently visited Zambia over the course of last week as guests of an organisation called Greenpop which was started in Cape Town five years ago by a team of the three following dedicated individuals, Misha Teasdale, Lauren O’Donnell and Mr Jeremy Loops. For myself, it was one of those organisations that  I had previously been aware of via friends that had been involved however I had paid little attention to it, like most of us with most organisations, and shamefully I’ll admit, that that leaves me as a major part of the problem of society today;  individuals show no interest in problems if it…

    “Well, I know now. I know a little more how much a simple thing like a snowfall can mean to a person” ― Sylvia Plath That familiar feeling came back instantly. I felt like a child on Christmas Eve again, except this time it was actually snowing instead of being boiling hot. I’m sitting on the airplane flying back home to Cape Town, suffering horridly from jet lag and blowing my nose loudly every five minutes, a consequence of having too much fun, but for the first time in a long time, I have run out of words. I honestly don’t know where to begin my story or where to…
