Welcome to Koekelooks!
I am an almost-not-29-year-old anymore. I work in a corporate environment by day, and do what I want by night. If I could earn a living by reading books the whole day, please let me know how.
I was born and bred in Pretoria. We relocated to the Vaal in December 2013. Anyone who has ever left the Big City Life for the platteland, please send me tissues, I’m still sobbing. But looking back and at where we are now, I wouldn’t have it any other way. I want to blog to connect to other like-minded women who share the same interests as me in all things beauty. I don’t know a thing about décor or fashion, but appreciate that I can copy and paste from magazines when the need arises.
I am a lover off all things milk. Yes, milk. Caffe Lattes, milkshake, ice cream, melktert, melkkos, those milk bottle sweeties, and most definitely milk-based beauty products. I also go crazy for sushi, dark chocolate, lip balms and any place on earth where it’s green all year long.
Koekelooks comes from a nickname my husband sometimes calls me by, and jumps right in with my inadvertent koekerige image.
Things can get personal here, as I find motivation through experience, and strength through past weaknesses. I find my identity in Christ and I honour and praise Him for where I am today.
Although this is a personal space for my personal opinions, the ex-auditor in me will always shout integrity, transparency and objectivity. Journey with me in sharing thoughts on beauty, faith, lifestyle, diet, maybe some cooking, hopefully some travel and definitely some funnies.
