This year I am making a concerted effort to up my cruelty free game. I have always been conscious of make up brands that test on animals but apart from make up, I haven't really looked into other things like hair products etc. When I started looking into cruelty free alternatives for skin care and hair products I also brushed up on my knowledge of cruelty free cosmetics, only to discover that the situation is a lot worse than I thought!

Our very good friends Daniella and Chris won a 2 night week day stay at the Cabanas in Sun City. Being the absolutely amazing humans that they are, they decided to give Travis and I their prize so that we could get out of Joburg for a bit. What a magical time we had!

Last year I started bio-kinetics to increase my weak muscle tone and just build up strength in general. I have no limitations in what exercise I can do, I have a healthy body and am free to choose what ever physical activity I want. However,... After a lifetime of chronic illness and having never been able to do any sports at school, my body is very weak and unfamiliar with the whole exercise thing.

I don't believe in new year resolutions but I do believe in seizing the opportunity of a new year to start good habits. One of my 2017 goals is to be kinder to the Earth and to create less waste!

As 2016 draws to an end, most of us start to look back and reflect on the year we had. We also take this time to think about what we want to achieve in the upcoming year.
