Get to know us & Life update



It’s been a few months since the last time I posted on the blog. Life just happened. There’s no other way to explain it. My husband changed jobs to a better position and I quit mine. I’m on treatment every single month now. I am a bit weaker since I skipped some treatments. (No more skipping every now and again just because I’m not in the mood for it or scared to take sick leave from work.) I’m also studying again too. I finished my Fashion Styling courses and I’m now busy with Fashion Illustration. Life was a bit on the hectic side and depression is a big fat nasty bitch. But I’m back to blogging again.

So no blog is complete without a little “Get to know Us” post. So sit back and read our answers to some silly questions we found on the internet. You might just really get to know us a little better.

How many kids do you want to have?

Him: 2 will be cool

Her: I’ll also like 2… Twins will be awesome!

Bushveld or Beach?

Him: Bushveld

Her: Same. I’m not a big fan of the beach.

What’s the first thing you do in the morning when you wake up?

Him: I put the kettle on to make us coffee. Every. Day.

Her: I greet our dogs and then drink coffee haha

What’s the best concert you’ve been to so far?

Him: Wow, there’s been a lot… Metallica has to be my pick.

Her: Yes, going to as many concerts as possible is our thing. But Rammstein and Metallica are my picks. I can’t choose between the two! It’s like choosing a favourite kid/pet. Foo Fighters and Iron Maiden was mind-blowing too. On to the next question. This one is difficult to answer.

What is your favourite TV series?

Him: Vikings

Her: The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones. Why can’t I just choose one? I see a pattern here…

Where were you born?

Him: Moedersbond Hospital in Pretoria haha that was really the hospital’s name

Her: In Kempton Park Hospital now known as the “Ghost  Hospital”

Grab the book nearest to you, turn to page 21, and find line 9:

Him: “Mainly he learned by playing along to skiffle groups.” LEMMY

Her: “And while Coco laughs along with the rest of them, something experimental and impulsive in the music chimes with her sense of novelty in being here.” COCO CHANEL & IGOR STRAVINSKY


What is currently your top 3 favourite apps?

Him: I don’t really have a favourite. Apps don’t bother me.

Her: Rain Rain (for the sound of thunder and rain when the sun has been shining too much), Instagram and Covet (a fashion game).

Would you rather meet an alien visitor or travel to outer space?

Him: Easy… Travel to outer space!

Her: Can I choose both? haha! I would like to travel to outer space, but I’m Claustrophobic and the idea of being “trapped” inside a spacecraft is kind of scary. So until I conquer my fear, I’ll go with meeting an alien visitor.

Favourite Perfume?

Him: Juan Paul Gautier

Her: Coco Chanel Chance

Weird Interests?

Him: Gory videos, with blood and sometimes death too. This is gonna sound worse than it is…

Her: Conspiracy Theories. I can get sucked into the dark side of the web real quick.

What quote do you live by?

Him: “Wanting to be someone else is a waste of the person you are.” a quote by Kurt Cobain that I’ve always lived by.

Her: It is what it is… It’s actually a quote from my husband’s BFF, Rob. He says this pretty much about every hard situation in life. It is what it is…. And it just stuck. Whenever I feel down about something that happens in life, I try to see it for what it is and move on. (Thanks for teaching me that Roberto. xx)

It was kind of weird going “with the trend” of a get to know us blog post. I specifically don’t usually go along with trends, but this was fun. Especially doing it with the hubster.

What would your answers be to some of these questions? Tell us below!

    Okay I’ve got a question for both of you:

    “What did you learn from one another during this phase of your lives?”
