Hey there! I’m Tracy, a South African Mom Blogger. I’m a Durban born, 34 year old wife and mom of two boys, Liam (9 years old) and Cole (2 years old). I live in the good looking city of Cape Town. I’m a mom and I blog, so I’m mostly referred to as a ‘Mom Blogger’ in the industry but I personally feel that this title is slightly limiting. When hearing them term ‘Mom Blogger’, then articles about breastfeeding and toddler tantrums come to mind. I’ve written a few articles on those subjects and I won’t be stopping there, but, that is not all I blog about.
A little more about us
I’m a full time working mom, working for a corporate company, with loads of numbers, so this little blog helps me maintain balance in my life. It’s my place to unleash. I’m a creative by nature and love to throw my creativity into my blog and social pages. I’m lover of all colorful and tastey, yet healthy food, and have a weakness for pointy and prickly plants. I love adding a chili to my plate (I guess that is how you can tell I’m a Durbanite ha!). I’m an aspiring crunchy mom so I always look for the natural route first in any given scenario but alot of the time life happens so I don’t always get to explore the natural options available to us.
I studied abit of web design and it helps me tremendously with my website. Through this online space of mine, I was finally able to put my web design skills to use. Its also the perfect space for me to release my creativity. Also, through blogging I found a love for photography. I find myself trying to perfect each and every picture I capture and share (You can also blame that on the slight OCD I have, ha!). This explains why I have a semi-curated feed on Instagram,with the emphasis on ‘semi’ haha! It’s a constant work in progress. However, I strive to keep it real always. So whatever I’m writing about, you can rest assured that I am writing from my heart.
What do I write about
Motherhood is the foundation of this blog. I often write about my motherhood challenges, milestones, parenting tips, kids toys and products reviews, schooling and more. There is a big age gap between my kids so the challenges I face as a mom, are quite different between the two kids. Because of this, the articles I write don’t always focus on one particular age group.
For the new and expecting moms, I’ve written a number of articles for the first-time mom in the Dear first-time mom category. I’ve been writing those articles with the aim of equipping new and expecting moms for their wonderful journey ahead.
As a South African Mom Blogger I don’t only write about my kids though. You will find loads of yummy recipes, mom hacks, places we’ve visited, beauty products I love, fashion I adore, gadgets that work for me and more.
So, whether you’re a mom, or not, you will enjoy this blog. X
