One thing I cannot live without...#Blogtober14 Day 3

When I think about it, and I mean, really think about it there are a few things that I can't live without...I can't, and I mean seriously, CAN'T narrow it down to just one thing. I can easily narrow it down to 5...But I'm going to cut it to my top two...and that's pushing it!!

So I had to think long and hard about this, the one thing I can't live without...It would have to be music. Music is a part of my everyday life, I sing in the shower, in the car, I even burst out into spontaneous song mid-conversation, luckily Riaan does it too, so it never gets annoying, we usually end up joining in on the other persons solo and finish off with a good giggle. Music is very much a part of our relationship as well, Riaan played in a few bands over the past few years (he plays guitar, bass and keyboard), he studied at a music college and he taught me the basics of how to play guitar. Music inspires me, it expresses so many emotions and it connects me with so many memories. I listen to music when I'm happy, sad, angry, confused or in the mood to let go, there's just always a song that's lyrics can apply to what is going on in your life. My favourite part of our wedding day was the first dance, we chose the song together and it was so sweet and special, it has so much meaning to me now and I get butterflies everytime I hear our song.
Back in 2008 - Riaan playing the guitar at a kuier.
The second is completely random but I seriously need it in my life. My water bottle - not a special bottle in specific, any bottle will do really, as long as it has a twist cap! I've heard that the one's with a pull/push top give you wrinkles around the mouth, and that makes sense if you think about it. Think of an old lady that smokes, her lips are most likely surrounded by a ton of wrinkles, sucking on that bottle does pretty much the same thing!! So give me a twist cap bottle and I'm happy. Why a water bottle you ask? Well, I just can't seem to get my 8 glasses a day in if they are in a glass, I drink so much more water if I have a bottle, it goes almost everywhere with me, in my handbag!


  1. Music is a VERY good choice. I love the way it has the ability to change our mood so easily. It's pretty high up there on my list, though not my number one thing.

    Lol, I think you've just put my off my CamelBak water bottle for life now! Never heard the wrinkles thing before. YIKES!


    1. I never even thought of my passport, it's actually a great choice! I am torn now!
      Hahaha I loved my squeeze bottles as well, until I heard the wrinkles story, I was immediately converted! Anything to avoid unnecessary wrinkles!!

  2. Music is so much deeper than we can even fathom. I love your perspective!

    Happy Friday!

    1. Thank you so much!
      Hope you had a wonderful weekend!!
