Appreciation: Alone time. Sounds a bit selfish but I really appreciate being left alone to read or watch tv, just for a few mins every now and then!
Beauty: My beauty regime is sparse. I use Clinique face products, KMS or Redken hair stuff and eight hour cream as often as possible. I wear Mascara most days and foundation sometimes and lip gloss occasionally
City: Durban, have lived in Johannesburg, Rustenburg, Joondalup, Hoddesdon and Richards Bay as well
Drink: water 90% of the time otherwise coffee (strong, decaf, no sugar lots of milk) of rooibos iced tea
Education: BA in Corporate Communications
Food: Yes please! Love food, especially Pizza or burgers or a nice crunchy salad with lots of Rocket.
Guilty Pleasure: the hour I have after Lily leaves for school before I start work where I can have a quiet cup of coffee and check my instagram feed
Hometown: Mulbarton in Jhb South
Ice Cream: I prefer WakaBerry
Jamming to: lately it’s Incy Wincy Spider and The Wheels on the Bus. If I have it my way it’s Fun. Also love One Direction (Judge away, I don’t care, I come from the era of Spice Girls, N Sync, Backstreet Boys and O Town- in fact I still LOVE Wet Wet Wet)
Look-a-like: Britney Spears bizarrely. I went to CT on a school trip in matric and spent the whole week swearing that I was not the girl from the Cell C ad; apparently I looked just like her. Still don’t know what ad they were talking about.
Movies: I love going to movies, popcorn with too much salt on, super sweet cherry slush and smarties dropped into popcorn. My me dates are always spent alone in a movie theatre. The last movie saw was Twilight 4.2
Nickname: Shaz. My dad called me Wonch.
Obsession: Harry Potter
Perfume: DKNY Pure or CK One
Quirk: My one eye and eye brow is higher than the other- does that count? I never close cupboards. Ever. Drives the people in my life dilly. After much introspection I have realized it is because I hate the sound. I don’t close the microwave for the same reason. That is definitely considered a quirk. No amount of logicalness can change it, I try, I remind myself to close the cupboard and literally dread hearing the sound.
Regret: Studying straight from school and not taking a year to travel. I know I did things the ‘right’ way, the ‘responsible’ way and that my life would have turned out differently if I did things differently, but I wish I had done the world on my back thing for a little while. I also regret not studying to be a hairdresser, will regret that one forever.
Sweet: chocolate, caramel or custard
Thrift Find of the Year: my clothes are all so old and falling apart at the moment that they are ALL thrift finds
University: University of Johannesburg
Vacation: I was blessed to have travelled with my parents a lot when I was younger. They took us to Disney in America and France more than once, to most of Europe and Mauritius. Shaun and I have been to Bali and Mozambique and I can’t pick a best out of all of those, they have all been wonderful.
Wine: extra light because I’m a cheap drunk
X: x is for? Kisses. Lilys fave game at the moment is to wave ta ta and give me a kiss then close the door, open it again, and start again. Cutest ever.
Years: 27 in July, one of my favourite numbers…
Zen: I try to take a page out of my dad’s book, he is very ‘Zen” about life in general. Not much bothers him, and he handles everything so well.
