Welcome and hello! I am Radhia, wife to Zieyaad and mother to Ammaarah – also known as Princess Porschie.
When I became a mother, life no longer revolved around plans – what to wear, what will we have for supper, what are we doing this weekend, where are we going – but rather around living in the moment. I no longer had control of my daily decisions, which is when I realised that life had officially began.
This blog is a simple glimpse of my every day, my every moment and my every step. This is my little space on the internet where I blog to share my moments with you – good and bad – to show that life happens to everyone.
I am inspired by the untold stories of a first time mother. Why are these things hidden and seldom spoken about? There are ups and downs to everything in life, and I believe that all aspects should be portrayed.
A little bit about us
I am a Chartered Accountant by day, working at a large Corporate company in the FMCG industry, and a mommy blogger by night. I am the Founder and Director of Treatmesweetlie, home of beautiful handmade baby goods. Somewhere in between the madness, I find the time to create handmade baby goods, which are sold in my online shop.
Zieyaad and I met while we were studying at the University of Cape Town. 7 years later, we married in the summer of 2010 and gave birth to our princess, Ammaarah, in the summer of 2014.
During my pregnancy we called her ‘Princess Porschie’. I’m sure many of you are wondering where this name comes from – it’s the little version of Zieyaad’s nickname for me. He calls me ‘Porsche’, and mini me was automatically called ‘Porschie’.
I truly hope these little pieces of me will inspire you to capture each and every of your moments. Enjoy and thanks for following along!
