My name is Wendy and I’m the body behind this blog.


I’m proudly South African, born and bred in sunny Durban but made Johannesburg my home for the past 15 years. I’m married to a remarkable guy for 15 years and 3 kids and one fur baby later, we’ve found that life has been quite the adventure AND as crazy as it gets, we wouldn’t have it any other way. 


As a family, we make, every effort to live our lives intentionally and obvs we don’t get it right all the time, but we reckon we’d rather fail fast and fail forward!


I’m a homebody by nature, committed to my faith in Christ and I believe that family is EVERYTHING. I believe in being authentic and true to who you are, I love people, décor, cooking for my family and friends, travelling and pretty things, BUT, it's matters of the heart that grip my attention most and if you stick around long enough, I have so much more to share! Other than that I’m just a regular "old soul" girl whose an all time tea lover!

Perfect Not Perfect is all about what inspires my lifestyle - including sneak peeks into my own life story, life as a mum, delicious food, beautiful decor, real-life relationships, parenting and faith. I believe in the power of sharing our stories to create a fortress for mums and parents to CONECT and  help each other navigate this journey called parenting.  I'd love the opportunity to share my experiences raw but real, #perfectnotperfect if it will help anyone!

Do come along, we're waiting for you!
