What 9 Years Of Marriage Has Taught Me

Today, Kurt and I are celebrating 9 years of Marriage. Yay!

I’m no marriage expert but Kurt and I must be doing something right if we are still together right?

Marriage is definitely not all peaches and roses 24/7, 365 days a year; but 1 special gesture or event can make up for and override all of the not-so-peachy times. There’s no such thing as a perfect marriage anyway, so it comes with the territory I suppose.

These days it’s not uncommon to hear of marriages ending within a couple of years of tieing the knot. It’s so sad really.

It feels like just yesterday that we walked down the aisle, but at the same time, it seems as if we’ve been together for a lifetime. There are a few lessons I’ve learned about marriage over the last 9 years and I thought today would be a good day for some reflection.

Do You Suffer From Hyperhidrosis? Iontoderma Can Help You


I’m usually sceptical about doing reviews about products I haven’t tried out myself, but when I was introduced to Iontoderma and heard and read about what their product has proven to do – I realised I’d be selfish not to share this valuable information with my readers who may benefit from this information or know someone who would.

Did you know that Excessive Sweating is a condition that touches about 5% of the population, but nobody seems to want to talk about it?

Most people sweat as a reaction to environment (hot temperatures) or emotion (stress).

It’s a completely normal reaction to these circumstances. For those who suffer from excessive sweating, the reaction is tenfold and often unprovoked. Excessive sweating is referred to in the medical community as Hyperhidrosis. It is a condition that isn’t often talked about because people are often too embarrassed or don’t know it’s a condition they can get treatment for.

Design Meets Function With The Geberit Bathroom Collection



When we renovated our home a couple of years ago, we learnt a great deal about project management and just how easily a budget can go pear-shaped if not managed properly.

Although we were generally happy with the final outcome, we were forced to opt for different and less expensive options to accommodate the stretched renovation budget.

So now that all the dust has settled and while our savings are building up, we may just be able to enhance some of the areas in our home more to our fancy – and if there’s a specific area which I would start with – it would have to be our family bathroom!

Since the renovation, a new member has been added to our family – one who’s currently potty-training and taking over the entire family bathroom! We didn’t really foresee how this would impact the use of the bathroom, so the space suddenly feels a bit cramped and could do with a revamp. A makeover will not only optimize the space, but also finally get a sleek and sophisticated family bathroom that we’ve actually dreamed of!
