About The Salon
More about our Salon on the Nitida Wine Estate Property soon…
I am actually just your normal, shy girl next door that grew up on a farm in the Northern Cape. However, being in hostel for the most part off my life, I had to learn to look after myself pretty fast, and knew to exceed one has to work hard! Since early on in my life I thus strove to be the best that I can be in all areas of my life through Him that strengthens me. After matriculation I left my family behind and came to Cape Town to pursue my dreams! In my journey I have met wonderful people and loving friends and can’t wait to see what the future holds! As the saying of Elizabeth Gilbert’s book, Eat Pray Love, I am one woman in search for everything! I love life, and although I have had my fair share of ups and downs and know there are still many obstacles to come, I have a passion for what I do! Talking about myself is not easy at all, but I would like to shine a light through what I do and reach peoples hearts! Making people feel good about themselves is surely the greatest satisfaction I have ever experienced and that is what keeps me motivated to always give my best!
I just love love LOVE making things look beautiful! Whether it is an old table or chair, giving life to a boring room, creating something from nothing, or making a beautiful woman feel even more beautiful.
Apart from that, I love the open space and fresh air of the farm but something in me craves that energy of the city! Going to the V & A, hearing the bongo drums and experiencing the mixture of so many cultures lights a little fire in my soul and takes me away!
Seeing new places excites me, I will never get board with a book in my hand, I am a sucker for romance as I have already mentioned and Jesus Christ is my one true love who I will exalt forever!
In Afrikaans I would end off by saying, “Fluit fluit my storie is uit.” Hopefully now you know the person behind Melted Toffee a little more!
