365 days of Emma

Today marks a year, 366 days actually since I brought Emma home and if I had to say what she’s brought into our lives everyday, its joy. I’ll save you all the gushing except to say she makes me look forward to coming home each day, makes me want to travel less (really!) and is

Natural blow-dry/length check – so here’s what we did…

(I’m just realising I’ve typed “what we did” in the title of this post as if I did any of the work – unless sitting on my behind for so long that it felt like it was fusing with the chair counts!) Ok so what did we he actually do in this five &

Hello 2016 & goodbye afro!

If I didn’t make myself sit down and write this here post you’d be reading it sometime in September. So belated happy new year and all of that stuff – I’m going to jump right in… I have a very particular skill to m-u-l-l over things. Like, I think about stuff. A. Lot. Too

The only kind of bling I want!

Not going to lie you guys. When Shimansky got in touch I was already going “oooooh” in my head as soon as I saw their name in my inbox. Something you probably didn’t know about me – I don’t do costume jewellery. At all. It’s not even something that changed as I got older.

Earth Cred – do your bit for the planet & win!

A strange thing happened without me knowing it over the last year and a bit. I sort of kinda without thinking about it, bit by bit went green. I see you rolling your eyes. That’s ok. I once rolled my eyes at the likes of me too. I’ve spent some time thinking about how

The best person I met this year

A couple of weeks ago I walked into a restaurant for a Feminist Stokvel meeting. It was a tiny place, maybe 4 tables in total of which 2 were pushed together for our reservation. At one of the other 2 tables was a family sharing a meal. A mom, dad and a daughter of

Design Essentials – Almond & Avocado

So more Design Essentials came across my desk recently & if you’ve read any of my previous posts about them you’ll know this certainly isn’t a bad thing! This time they sent me their Almond & Avo range (part of the Naturals collection) & let me say upfront before I get into the review

How I started my veggie garden

Time to get back to some proper posts! Note this piece isn’t called “how to start a veggie garden” and for good reason. I just did my own thing, totally winged it & it mostly paid off. As it turns out, I’m a little better an gardening than keeping an orchid alive! We’re 16

Warsan Shire in Conversation with The Feminist Stokvel

“Give your daughters difficult names. Give your daughters names that command the full use of tongue. My name makes you want to tell me the truth. My name doesn’t allow me to trust anyone that cannot pronounce it right.” ~ Warsan Shire Oh my God – when I read this for the first time

Design Essentials Coconut & Monoi

No complaints when some more Design Essentials came across my desk recently. I liked using their naturals range a couple of months back so I was hoping that their Coconut Monoi range would show my fro some love too. I got sent 5 products from the Coconut & Monoi range (left to right): Deep Moisture Milk

Photo Post: Addis Ababa (now with photos!)

Guys (for those of you who subscribe to new posts) I’m sorry for sending you another blooper this morning. I’d already written & scheduled the post but the pics were taking so damn long to upload  and it was after 11pm last night so I thought I had cancelled the scheduling & do it 1st

Moisturizing Natural Hair

Morning! Sorry for this morning’s fumble (you may have received a weird/incomplete post from me *sigh*). Here’s the update – a piece I wrote for Inecto on moisturising natural (in fact all kinky, curly hair). If you hair’s textured, you need to read this! Not forgetting that if you’re in any kind of protective

Feminist Stokvel Hair Soiree: Dem Baby Hairs!

Right off the FS press desk… — On Saturday 19 September, The Feminist Stokvel is inviting everybody that is raising a black child (white people raising black children are especially welcome) who need some practical tips on looking after them baby hairs from washing to styling or any parent / sibling / nanny who

Emma Anderson

I’ve been holding out on you… When Sofia died, no one understood like the good folks at Cataholics. I went around often just to chat or play with the kittens. If I was really lucky & went in the afternoons I got to see a kid come in with their mom, excitement overflowing at the prospect of

Introducing Feminist Stokvel Weekends

We’re doing things a little differently… Be sure to follow Feminist Stokvel on Facebook, Twitter & Instagram for updates. W xoxo

Dear 17 year old me

Last week I finally picked up my new ID – some 4 years on. I have absolutely no attachment to my maiden surname. I can’t really trace it back in my family. It didn’t mean anything to me. At all. People would often ask me what it meant. Um, nothing. So many people asked me if it

16 things I miss about my Sofia

  This face (I mean… look at it!!!) These paws! She was a natural born poser… …And a photo bomber of note Whiskers on fleek! Escape artist extraordinaire She made the best faces She liked to eat She loved to sleep She was fascinated by the rain She had the best hiding places She taught me

As I Am’s Leave-In Conditioner – it’s a goodie!

If you have curly/kinky hair I don’t need to tell you As I Am is one of those lusted after international brands I’ve known about almost since I went natural.  But (& big BUT) I could never bring myself to spend that kind of money on it. I mean I wanted it but… That’s. A lot.

A yellow rose

A couple of days ago I was in a store, rushed, needing to pee & paying for a few things. A had double parked so I guessed I had to run in though I really didn’t feel like it. At. All. I’m standing there in my tatty dress, hair standing on end, slip slops, sans make up

Eat This #1: Creamy Seasonal Mushrooms on Toast with Parmesan

I’m starting something new on the food front over here. Sometimes I just want to tell you about something so insanely delicious that it immediately goes on my mental list of “I-have-to-come-back-here-asap-&-get a whole-lot-more-of this-stuff” as soon as I’m a few bites in. And by the end of the meal it takes a good amount of

The Feminist Stovkel presents: Texture Discrimination – The Problem with Kaff*r Hare

Guys, even just typing the subject of this post… So. Many. Emotions. But we’re going there. We need to… I visited the venue for our upcoming third Hair Soiree, The Women’s Gaol (Jail) at Constitution Hill for the first time today (I’m more than a little ashamed since I lived 2kms away for 3 years) – an incredibly

Photo post: Victoria Falls

When I found myself really, really torn about the last overpriced (business class!) seat on a flight to Vic Falls I realised just how much I wanted to go. Ironically we went a few weeks ago at the height of all the xenophobic violence in SA. I felt more than a bit bad being there, hoping no

Another local winner – Suki Suki Naturals

A couple of weeks ago the most beautifully packaged local hair care line I’d ever seen crossed my desk – meet Suki Suki Naturals. Not even going to lie – these gorgeous brown glass bottles had my attention immediately and whereas I’d usually park deliveries on my desk for a bit I grabbed them & started reading the labels and

Feminist Stokvel Movie Club Launches: La Noir de

Only a  couple of weeks ago The Feminist Stokvel had our inaugural event. We promised there was more to come & the FSFlim Club is just a start… A little sneak peak: The press release right off the FS desk (this is the 1st & last press release you’ll find on my blog but

When it rains it friggin’ pours

I’ve been delaying writing this note for a couple of days now. Well… because in the battle of balancing online vs. real life, I don’t quite know what to say… Life happened. Real life happened & what I learned about myself is that I only have the headspace/will/energy to deal with one big thing at a time. And
