When an embryo fragments…

I have been in for close to 12 aspirations and abandoned cycles more than double that. It hasn’t gotten any easier. On 2 Feb I went in again. I woke up to good news, a smiling husband and Dr Clark that found 1 more. Then the wait started to hear about progress… the fertilized egg […]

INSTAXgoddess Doors

INSTAX Door Project Update

I don’t know what I’m enjoying more – taking photos with the Instax Mini 8 or taking photos of the Instax photos. Finding the doors also makes me happy and seeing the smiles on people’s faces when they see the photos is just such a nice feeling. When I first started thinking about doing the […]

Will you be my Valentine? You could win with Endless Jewelry!

Every year I say that I don’t want anything for Valentine’s Day, but secretly I always want just a little spoil from hubby. Sometimes his gift ideas hit the mark…and sometimes they spectacularly missed the mark. I really don’t like cut-flowers, but if you give a plant I will try to keep it alive. I […]

Essence nail products

Healthy nail secrets revealed (…and they are super affordable)

I have never really been able to grow long nails (and I detest having false/chemical nails) but this December I grew awesomely strong long nails and it is all thanks to a few new products I bought. My favourite buy during the silly season was the Essence nail repairing oil with Argan oil – I […]
