Shoes from Superbalist

Welcome back or hello for the first time from me, Robyn aka the Uphill Writer!

It’s no secret that I’m a millennial and that means you probably already know a few things about me right off the bat. One of those things being that I love online shopping. In fact, I love to do most things online if it’s at all possible. And I know I’m not alone.

I work online, have photos printed online, order my rides with Taxify or Uber online, and yes, I even purchase clothing online. More specifically, shop for shoes online! Another thing I absolutely adore doing online is “window shopping” or rather, “adding to cart”. (Although that’s not quite as snappy as “window shopping” is it?)

If you’re in the browsing mood, take a look at the glorious shoes from Superbalist I recently added to my cart and perhaps you’ll feel a little inspired.

Taxify South Africa - Half price Tuesdays#NotSponsored

Hello friends! Gosh, it’s been a while, right? I’m so sorry for the radio silence, I’ve just been a little swamped at the moment. But I’m back! (Déjà vu, anyone?)

Now let me start off by saying, I realise that this post is probably going to come across as being super sponsored, but trust me, it’s not. I just really love the Taxify service.

Fantastic South African Bloggers and Where to Find Them

South African Bloggers from all around the country have been brought together on Facebook.

South African Bloggers Network

In 2015 I found myself searching for a place to connect with bloggers like myself and after finding nothing that catered for South Africans specifically, I decided to change that. I was searching for a Facebook group that made it easy to share blog posts and ask for help, but seeing as one didn’t exist, I created the South African Bloggers group.

All I wanted to do was connect with fellow South African bloggers, but I never expected it to grow as quickly as it did.

The tale of my first tattoo

Tattoo
This post has been a long time coming. Unfortunately I got my very first tattoo during my blogging dry spell so I missed out on the chance to share my excitement as it was happening. But now that I’m back, I thought I’d share about my first tattoo, when and where I got inked, and why I decided to take the permanent plunge at last.

The first buzz

Let me start off by saying that this first tattoo has been in the pipeline for a very long time. I’ve always loved tattoos and since a child, I’ve been drawn to other people’s body art. My grandfather, uncle, and siblings all have tattoos and I knew it was only a matter of time before I took the plunge. I’m a fairly level-headed human being and I was determined to NOT be one of those silly 18-year-old girls who just got any old tattoo without doing any research and then regretting it a few years later.
