So I’ve recently (on 22 May to be exact) turned 30 and thought, “what better way to get through the emotional turmoil of life, the unending amount of disastrous dates, exciting events and the extremely petrifying idea of being 30, than to write about it?”

I’m not so sure about you, but the thought of turning 30 gave me tons of anxiety. Even more, the idea of being single and 30 got me feeling rather disturbed and unsettled. But eventually I got over it and realised that there is more to life than just co-existing (inserts sarcasm here).

I believe that I’m quite a driven and ambitious woman, but as with all delicate females, living the single, independent life can make you wonder, “Will I ever find the one?”

Besides this sob story, I like to think that I am blessed. I have the most stunning friends and family. I have been presented with many amazing opportunities including being on South Africa’s first ever season of The Bachelor (I’ll elaborate about this experience in later blog posts). I hardly ever have dull days, except once a month when I am unable to control my emotions, eat my feelings and become a weak b***ch.  Excluding this, life is pretty dandy in Greenstone, Johannesburg.

Now that I’ve gotten my little rant out of the way, I hope that you enjoy my journey as much as I enjoy sharing it with you. I’ll literally be sharing everything, including how I feel about aging, wrinkles and finding my first grey hair, my experience on The Bachelor SA, what made me decide to get breast augmentation (yup I did this!), whether my milkshake brings all the boys to the yard and much, much more!

Stick around!


  1. I’m loving your blog Taryn and not because I’m your mom. It’s refreshing to see positive and a fully lived life embracing the good and not so good.
