Ever wonder what it feels like to have a tiny Elephant walk across your back?
Or what the warm African sun would feel like if it was poured on to your skin?
I had the privilege of going to Rain Africa Spa in Cavendish to find out.
I met Ronel from Rain at the Cape Town Bloggers meetup, I was so impressed with the company ethos of handmade, organic and fairtrade, that I had to find out more about the company. I was very interested to hear about the ladies in the community that they help support who do knitting and crochet for them.
Rachel is back and it is nice to podcast with her again
I am without my co-host this week but Caleb and Pippin pop in briefly
This week I bravely let Rachel do my make up
Both kids join me today
Have you ever discovered a wip that you forgot about and when you discovered it, you had to wonder “What was I thinking”
After a short delay due to our floors being done, Rachel and I are back
Rachel graduated from her Chaeli Campaign Ambassadors course and she has decided to continue next year. A huge thank you to everyone who helped with the hats, washcloths and donations.
Last weeks winner of the Cape Point hat already has the pattern so we drew again, Lilymaya is our new lucky winner.
My blogging A-Z did not go that well, so I am thinking of a new way to do this.
I met with Meg from Mind The Curves to talk about designing for plus sizes and would love to hear if anyone else has any input.
