About Me

I suppose more interesting than about me, is why am I sprawled out in my lingerie?

The answer is simple, every woman needs to feel fabulous.

It’s me, a part of me and a part of all women.

Too often hidden, many times forgotten and all also sadly relagated to the bottom of a list that never quiet gets addressed as life and its challenges lay their demands at one’s door!

Its a reminder that I am more than a mother, a girlfriend, an entrepreneur or a work collegue …

Like all women there is an enigma to us, so its a banner to that and at the same time it’s a catalyst to spur me forward to “Be all I can be” and as a very good friend always says “Why be less than Fabulous!”

My life has these past years morphed more and more into a life that reflects me, all of me, in small steps, large leaps and some painful setbacks. I am here and I am good with that!

So this is my Journey and its only just getting started! My youngest out the nest and very well set up all on his own steam.

Proud! Happy!  At ease and also looking forward to explore more that is me, hidden behind duty and need that family brings.

It’s my time to shine.


A friend recently described my blog as follows:

“Not for the faint hearted. She tells it like it is. Sometimes a bit racy, which I like. It takes confidence to go beyond the norm of society and say what others are thinking, but not willing to write.”

A fellow blogger reviewd my blog as follows on blogcatalog.com:

If you want a blog with an amusing take on being a mother of four, with a risque twist and a dash of attitude, Lanthie is the lady for you.

Marvel at her ability to eat chocolate!

Gasp as she topples off her new heels!

Shudder as she gets confused by a conversation about lube!

For these and many other stories, all told with the good humour and naughty twinkle her readers have come to expect, check out Lanthie’s Bowl of Cherries.

You won’t be disappointed.
