-I am a hopeless romantic who was supposed to be born in Italy (it's my dream destination), but proud to be South African nonetheless.
-I live by my heart and, consequently, leave a little bit of me in everything I write.
-I currently stay in a small apartment that I clean obsessively due to self-diagnosed OCD.
-My friends would say I'm kind and patient, my mom would say I'm loving but sometimes a little naive, my ex-boyfriend would say I don't know how to apologise (but who cares lol).
-I'm a writer who doesn't read much - working on that.
-I truly believe mermaids (and fairies) exist.
-I am deathly afraid of the age '30'.

Read below as we take you ‘wine tasting’ and tell the tall tales of red, white, and blush wine. Unfortunately, there isn’t any real wine involved, but feel free to sip on a glass as you read. (We certainly are!)
