Suzelle DIY show you How to Declutter Your Life with Gumtree Laugh out Loud! 31 JUL 2015

Suzelle DIY continues to make me chuckle every time I see something of hers on the Internet, and her latest effort is certainly no different.

So here goes: How to declutter your life – Suzelle DIY style!

Brilliant, as always! :)

(Just a note, but this is also a fantastic example of native advertising done right. Nowhere is Gumtree being pushed at you but it is obvious enough that this is a video done at their behest. Subtle, nicely done.)

Banting: How to Make a Cauliflower Pizza (with Suzelle DIY) Recipes 25 MAY 2015

Hate it or love it, Professor Tim Noakes and his Real Meal Revolution (Banting Diet) has certainly had a massive impact on the South African food space, sparking a whirlwind of food-related conversations to take place between South Africans from all walks of life.

My new favourite DIY personality, Suzelle DIY, roped in her friend Mariette and together with Prof. Tim Noakes they put together a hilarious little video explaining just how to go about making a cauliflower pizza – essentially using cauliflower as a replacement for flour.

Needless to say, as with all Suzelle DIY videos, the end result is pretty entertaining!

Hmmm, koeksisters

(Did you know that the Koeksister Monument is an actual thing? Yup, down in Orania of all places: The two meter high statue of a koeksister, a syrupy confection, has been standing for twelve years. It is the brainchild of Orania’s Kaalvoet women’s organisation and named for Susanna Smit, who said she would rather walk barefoot (kaalvoet) over the Drakensberg than suffer under British rule.)

I’m not entirely convinced that I’ll travel all the way through to Orania to see it though.

How to Mess Less when Drilling Holes My Life 30 JAN 2015

Over the last couple of years I’ve put up a lot – seriously a lot – of shelving around and about our house. Of course, every shelf requires a multitude of holes to be drilled through the plaster and into the concrete/brick walls, which translates into a lot of fun time spent with my old, inherited Black and Decker electric drill.

Now I’ve come across this tip numerous times in the past, but the point is that it does actually work and thus is always worth mentioning again: How to you create less mess when drilling?

Well, one of the simplest ways to mess less when drilling a hole is to simply grab a plastic shopping bag and some masking tape and then stick one end of the open bag directly under the spot where you are about to drill.

As simple as that.

The bag acts as  a dust catcher which in turn means more time putting up shelves and less time becoming acquainted with your vacuum cleaner.

(Unless of course you don’t really like putting up shelving and would rather spend some more time with your vacuum cleaner in the first place. I’m not going to judge if that is the case, promise.)
