Hellooooo! Let me tell you just a little bit about us. I’m Tracy, a South African Parenting, Lifestyle and Beauty Blogger. I’m a Durban born, 33 year old wife and mom of two boys, Liam (9 years old) and Cole (1 year old, almost 2). 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 ‘Mommy Blogger’ in the industry but I personally feel that this title is slightly limiting. I mean, when I hear the term ‘Mommy Blogger’, then articles about breastfeeding and toddler tantrums come to mind. Yes I’ve written a few articles on those subjects and I won’t be stopping there, but, that is not all I blog about.
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 food, have a weakness for pointy and prickly plants and I love adding a chili to my plate (I guess that is how you can tell I’m a Durbanite ha!)
I studied abit of web design which helps me tremendously with this website. I knew my web design skills would be of use some day. Also, through blogging I found a love for photography. I find myself trying to perfect each and every picture I capture (You can also blame that 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.
Yes, motherhood is the foundation of this blog so 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 really are different between the two kids. So if you have older kids, around 9 years old, or younger kids around 1 years old, you will enjoy this, and if you are a new mom you will especially enjoy this. I’ve written a number of articles for the first-time mom in the Dear first-time mom category.
Being a Parenting, Lifestyle and Beauty Blogger means I don’t only write about my kids. You will find loads of yummy recipes, 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
Join me on this journey, it will be fun, inspiring and educational, I promise.
