She balances her day job and conjuring up new romantic tales with a local personal blog with arb ramblings about her life in Durban. Perusing all things Chris Hemsworthy also takes up a great deal of her time. A true foodie at heart, nothing makes her day quite like a decadent dessert. CHOCOLATE SOLVES EVERYTHING!!!
