    Just what I need to get me over all the antibiotics that I have had after contracting Meningitis a while ago. What a treat and a real health boost!

    It has been really challenging year with my daughter in and out of hospital, along with some other complications. It would be AMAZING to end the year by treating ourselves. Does moving back to SA count as treating ourselves 🙂


    hahahaa, well – my son is 9…so I’d say – about 9 years ago? 🙂

    I believe in treating myself daily – even if it is just quiet time with a book, a cup of tea and burning oils at night.

    Is it bad that I cant even remember? In all honestly, a treat for me is treating others – so I could really use a good time out for myself. x

    My husband and I are celebrating our anniversary in November and with a tough year nearly behind us, it would be great to be able to have quality time together.

    It’s been almost 4 years since we’ve had quality alone time.

    It would be such a treat to get away for some ‘me’ time. I love my little boy, but sometimes we all need a breather – and this would be the perfect go to place.

    I try to treat myself in little ways, but more and more it’s becoming self-pampering than actually having it done at a parlour. Hubby and I haven’t been away on a romantic retreat in forever and these suites look amaaaazing! What a treat it would be indeed, to spend a weekend in this luxury!

    Does putting a face mask on whilst doing laundry count? Hehe

    This would make for the best gift to a mother who’s always been my pillar of strength. Beautiful retreat!

    The last time I treated myself was a week ago I bought myself some chocolate and went for a pedicure and a mani, well that is as far as treating myself goes. Though I would appreciate a weekend getaway break to unwind and relax plus enjoy the pleasures that comfort and luxury living has to offer.

    To be honest my partner and i of 8 years have never being away from home, not even a weekend getaway. Would love to win this awesome prize, share some precious moments away from home and absorb the beauty that the Mother City has to offer. Life’s stresses can get too much at times and this will definitely give us a new perspective on life

  30. Sabine Avatar

    never really 🙁

  31. Sindy Avatar

    I could definitely do with a break from the hustle and bustle of Gauteng and unwind down in the coast. Hubby and I could do with a getaway to reflect on our journey thus far.

    I used the toilet this morning with my 15month old on my lap and my 7 year old outside the door. So yes any amount of time to myself would be seriously amazing. I haven’t slept in 15months (Baby has never slept, hahaha) So a whole weekend to sleep and be me is so unbelievable.

    We haven’t been away for a long while! I think the last time was when our third son was 6 months old, and we had to take him with….. (he was not a good sleeper, so we came back more exhausted than before we left!). So this will be soooooo nice to win 🙂

    What is that ? What is a treat ? All I want now is a bath or a meal in peace and quiet. I’m a stay at home mom and I know working moms have it tougher . But being home all the time has made me lazy and forgetting to think about myself . Kids ,clean, dinner , husband , washing . The list goes on and on

    It’s been ages since I last treated myself! I often think of my family first including my furry friends & I love that! Also, I have put whatever savings I have had into my psychology studies which I know is an investment! To think of having some serious R&R with my man at this piece of paradise would be a dream come true!
