Welcome to my world!

By way of introduction, I’m Nicola and I’m very happy that you’ve stopped by. I would like to share a little more details about myself…I think that’s fair, don’t you?

I am happily married to an amazing man I’m proud to have as my husband. I’m also a  mum to Kayden, my toddler son who I adore to the moon and back.

I don’t see myself as INFLUENCER, in social media terms – although I can be very influential.   You’re probably wondering why I am here then, aren’t you? Well, just to give you some background, the very first time I began blogging, I was at a very low time in my life where I experienced lots of heartache, which was my inspiration. Blogging was my outlet and coping mechanism. It made me feel better to talk about the pain, in the hope that it will inspire others who had been through similar – and it did!

However, lot’s changed in my life and my previous blog took a back seat.  When I created this blog, I became intentional about it. I still wanted and want to be an inspiration to others. As I aspire to inspire others, I see myself as an INSPIRER.

Last year (2019), I became less active on social media and on my blog. I had a change in my career – after being in HR/Learning and Development for over 20 years of my life, I am now in Sales. (If you’re ever looking to book accommodation or conference/event facilities around the OR Tambo International Airport, then do not hesitate to contact me as that’s now my day job, which I am thoroughly enjoying!

Quite honestly, I was also put off blogging for a while when I noticed how many bloggers would just post anything and everything, just because they got it for free – losing authenticity. But then I reminded myself, “hey! that’s not your business Nicola, remember why you started blogging and do just that!”  So here I am, #keepingitreal with my blog posts that will sometimes be crazy, weird and long, but what I can assure you, is that it will always be true. One day when I am no longer around and Kayden reads my blog, he will have an accurate impression of who I am…or was…not what social media standards depict or the number of likes etc.

I’m selective about what I choose to post about, call me fussy – I have an opinion and personal preferences and I am not shy to share my views, which are always candid.

I am PR friendly, so for PR Requests/Collaborations/Journo Requests, please do contact me, for more info, check out:

I do hope that you will enjoy my efforts. I look forward to engaging with you on my blog and on social media.
