A Little Bit About Me

I’ve toyed with the idea of starting a blog for a very long time. I own a boutique PR and brand building agency in Dubai called Think Liquorice, and until falling pregnant, also worked in television and media. I'm married to an Australian vet, and in July 2017 gave birth to our son, Noah. We are a couple who travel a lot and love it! Being based in Dubai allows us the opportunity to visit so many places, and we love being part of such a cosmopolitan city. I am a passionate South African, a lover of life and all the opportunities it sends my way. I have found the journey through pregnancy and into motherhood to be amazing - not easy - but so rewarding! My son is a beautiful natured little human, and I just marvel at how he grows leaps and bounds every day. I run a small PR company in Dubai that deals with lifestyle and hospitality brands, a few international personalities and very special events. I started the company in 2012 in Dubai, and although challenging, I love what I do! Working with people is a blessing and a curse, but the lessons and experiences I have enjoyed through my job I wouldn't give back for the world. Since becoming a parent, I do struggle with the juggle - PR is a very demanding industry and Dubai is a busy city - but I believe in balance and I do my best to achieve it.
