Susann Deysel

Hi there, I’m Susann, a blogger from Johannesburg (mostly) and Salt Rock (that is near Ballito).

I have an insatiable appetite for new passport stamps and my wanderlust has seen me drag my hubby to places he “never wants to see again”. If I could, I would become a nomad with a laptop and seven bikinis.

One of the most difficult subjects I write about is my infertility journey. It is one of the most heart-breaking and lonely journeys you could go on. To add to fertility treatments and having to shake our pockets we also have to use a surrogate to carry a baby for us.

I now live in a house with my Irish husband, the kid (Lexa that is now just over a year old) and 2 crazy black cats. I write quite a bit about little Lexa and her baby antics.

Other topics I write about include:

  • Beauty because I like to keep my youthful appearance (you will never guess my real age)
  • Local brands under my #LekkerLocal series

Brands I’ve worked with

  • Instax (ongoing)
  • Endless Jewelry

Want to work with Goddess blog?

I’m open to working with brands and companies on campaigns and try out new products.
Delivery Address: Please email me as I might be in Johannesburg or Salt Rock
