Welcome to The Vibe 101, a reflection about anything and everything. The scope is broad including news and views, arts and entertainment, fashion and beauty, lifestyle and travel, what makes us laugh, the challenges we face or the things that just make us go mmm …there is no limit!

It’s about simple pleasures, the journey that life takes us on and the joyride along the way.

    • Oh my gosh, that is the GREATEST compliment I’ve received yet. It’s made my day!!! I always wanted to be a journalist, but I was painfully shy and sadly it was never encouraged by my folks. I love travelling, interior design and writing – they’re my passions. I’m actually back at Uni to finish of a course in interior design/decorating. It’s a career change, a lot different to my marketing background.

      • I wish you all the best for your future career in design/decorating. If you’re anywhere near as creative visually as you are in the written word, you’ll do exceptionally well.

        (and I was serious about your writing – in the last 3-4 years since I’ve had internet access at home, I can’t believe how poor people’s grammar, spelling and punctuation is on the internet. I mean to say, we all do typos occasionally. I have intermittent ‘brain fog’ with one of my health conditions, but I still try to proofread several times. We’ve all got to start somewhere with our blogging. But it’s sheer joy to read blogs that are visually pleasing and written creatively.

        Never, ever let shyness stop you becoming the person you were meant to be.

      • I have my fingers and toes crossed that I do well. I’m chasing a dream, I just hope the bubble doesn’t burst. This is the first time I’ve done anything visually artistic. I started the blog in late 2012 to kickstart my creative juices.

        I must admit I’m not a prolific writer. It takes weeks for me to put something together. I’m not naturally gifted. I always have my posts proofread by my better half. Nothing gets published until he runs his eyes over my drafts.

        I’m trying desperately to step out of my comfort zone and come out of my shell. Again thanks so much for the wonderful positive feedback. I get a buzz b/c this is what I love and enjoy doing.

  1. What can I possibly add to the previous 238 comments that hasn’t already been mentioned? Nothing, I suspect. A couple of things stand out to me for which you should be commended; the eclectic nature of your blog, and the honesty. So often the advice to bloggers is ‘find your niche’. Niche be buggered! Write about what makes you passionate, whether that’s food, travel, relationships or something as mundane as misguided attempts at gardening!

    I like your work and I’ll be following with interest.


    • Wow!!! Such wonderful compliments like this is the reason why I write. When I first started this blog, I thought I’d focus on fashion. But then I realised I had so much more I wanted to say. I can’t pigeon hole myself b/c I’m not an expert on anything specific. It’s easier to write something that you’re passionate about, that’s personal to you, that comes from the heart.

      Again, thanks so much for the fabulous feedback. It made my day! Cheers

      • My pleasure. I sometimes wonder whether I spread myself a little too thin on my own blog, but it’s reassuring to see others successfully doing the same, and it gives me motivation to continue down the same path πŸ™‚

      • I love the blog! Travel, food, photography – that’s a trilogy to a sensational blog!!! They’re the key topics I read. I’d love to be Anthony Bourdain…to combine drinking, travel, food and to document your adventures through writing/photography – that’s my dream job!

  2. Hi! Thanks for taking the time to like my post “Find Yourself.” I’m still new and finding my way around blogging and don’t have much confidence on my writing skills yet so knowing there are people out there who like my posts means a lot! Thanks for dropping by! πŸ™‚

  3. Hey! Your blog is great; I really enjoy reading about your insight on things. I also appreciate your visits to my blog and the likes you’ve given me, after just one day you’ve been my first repeat visitor. Thank you very much. If it’s not too much trouble could you share my blog to your followers and fans? If not that is fine and I understand!
