h hello!

There’s one resolution I always seem to fail miserably at. Okay, make that two, if you count cutting down on chocolate. And the reason I fail at it is purely down to poor planning. Arriving at the supermarket till without a reusable shopping bag happens to me far too often, to my shame. It’s not that I don’t have reusable bags: I must have bought 100 in my lifetime, but goodness knows where they are. Being used, that’s where. Whether it’s to hold all my other plastic bags (gasp!), storing winter scarves during the summer months, hiding a wool stash in the back of a wardrobe, or keeping together the baking tins and moulds I find it impossible to stack on a shelf, my reusable bag is never where…

READER OF THE MONTH Cape Town resident Donna Little (37) lives with her mom (a beautiful 60-year-old diva), her sister René and René’s family. She’s a first-time mom to an active and very mischievous two-year-old son. DONNA’S FAVOURITE:…BOOK The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks and all the Danielle Steele books, especially Zoya and Family Album. My great-grandmother got me hooked – she was a Mills & Boon lady.…MOVIE I enjoy a variety of genres, so I love The Notebook, PS I Love You, Braveheart and Rob Roy. I’m also a die-hard Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings fan, and I love Pirates of the Caribbean. Tyler Perry’s Madea movies inspire me too, in many ways.…RECIPE My mom’s roti and curry (it’s amazing every time!), a deliciously moist and rich…

star letter

I work for a very toxic, manipulative person and in the years I’ve been there, I’ve broken down multiple times from the pressure and unrealistic expectations placed on me. Although I’m a hard worker who puts in many extra hours to obtain the levels demanded of me, it’s simply not possible to sustain them. Once this manager realises that you’ve ‘failed’ him, he showers you with ridicule and venomous insults.My November 2018 issue of Your Family arrived in the mail and sat in its wrapping for a whole week before I finally got a chance to peruse it. I stopped dead in my tracks at your article, The Narcissist, on page 46. The advice it contained was just what I needed to read and I’ll certainly be sharing it…

ready for winter

5 TIPS TO GIVE YOUR HOME THE SNUG FACTORIf your home’s still geared for sunny days and balmy nights, it’s time to get winter-ready. Think soft, swaddled evenings, warm, rosy glows and relaxing with a mug of hot chocolate in hand. Here are five ways to go about transforming your home for the cold season: 1 ESTABLISH A COSY CORNER A designated snuggle-space is a must for winter – a spot dedicated to ultimate comfort and relaxation, where you can settle in to read a good book and forget about the cold outside. First, choose a space for this in your home – whether in the living room, bedroom or an existing nook. Get set up with your most comfortable couch or some floor cushions, adding textures and fabrics…
