20 questions with… @kizmetcava1

If you’re anything like us at ZMG HQ you’re of an inquisitive nature, and LOVING this new feature (You were also born in August and hate liquorice, but that’s by the by). This week it’s the turn of Bec, or @kizmetcava1 as she’s known on Twitter. She describes herself as a blogging newbie and a mum of two and says she’s ‘a spaniel in human form who is known for persuading friends to go on midnight walks after too much wine.’ We’d describe her as fun and bubbly, mainly because she likes both. Without any further ados, let’s play… Twenty questions with… @kizmetcava1 1.…

New Year. New Phase.

Firstly, Hi! This is my First ZmG post for 2017 and it feels good. Its really nice to be back after what has been a mental busy 8 weeks or so. Hence, I’ve truly been the worst blogger on the planet of late. I guess its just that with all the best will in the world, sometimes life with 4 children and various fingers in various pies all over the various place makes life, well, varied … as well as unpredictably busy. Anyway, excuses excuses. I’m back. And I’ve got a about a trillion and one plans for the new year; so…

New Week. New Shoes.

Well hello there. Long time no see! I hope you have all had a wonderful summer, I know I have. And its been a busy one alright – Hence, no blogging … But I’d just like to say a very big heartfelt thanks to everyone who has messaged and emailed to say that they have missed ZmG posts each week – I was really happy to know that people enjoy reading it, much less actually noticed its absence! Thanks guys. I made a conscious effort before my four children broke up from school to leave my laptop well alone during the summer holidays, so that I could…

Body Confidence, Blogging & Outfits

  After just a little over year of blogging outfits on ZmG’s #FridayStylefinder post, I wanted to do a write an explanation of sorts. A conclusion, if you will. So, question: do I choose to write about fashion because I’m an expert; a qualified stylist; a total legend in the style stakes? God NO! and nor do I, for any amount of cotton-pickin’ seconds think that that I posses any particular flair for the subject. I just love it is all. And that’s all there is to it really – That’s the only reason I write these posts. I guess one of the perks…

Sleep is for the weak

I saw a piece on the news about sleep. About undersleeping in fact. At first I thought it was an April Fool, like the spaghetti tree or that little Lirpa Loof fella on That’s Life but it wasn’t. Undersleeping isn’t a joke. It’s much more dangerous than that. You know oversleeping? It’s like that. But more opposite. Being serious for just one cotton picking minute, insomnia is hell for those who suffer on a regular basis and it’s proven that lack of sleep can adversely effect one’s mood and quality of life. A recent poll of 2,000 adults revealed they get an…

Write, right?

Last week began with dreadful back ache. I couldn’t stand, sleep or do the hokey cokey without groaning, grumbling or making that ‘oof’ sound men make when they’re bending down, or getting up from bending down, and want to show how much effort it’s taken them. I was under instructions to rest, which I did as much as I could but, in the words of Shakespeare, shit don’t do itself, so I still had to do the hoovering and put the washing away. You see, the ironing and cleaning fairies don’t visit this house, I think they got killed in…
