the mammoth multitasker

Nadine Bowley is an art and drama teacher at Amanzimtoti Primary School, she’s been married to her high-school sweetheart, Gareth, for 18 years now. Gareth leads Oasis Church and together they have four of the most gorgeous, delightful children you’ve ever met. And I am allowed to say that because Nadine is my sister and these four children are my nieces and nephews. I became an aunty for the first time when Hope was born. She’s now 14 (!), then there’s Samuel (12), Luke (10) and Alexandra (7). Nadine always wanted four children and loves being a mom. She also loves creativity and art and has too many hobbies but not enough time. Being a neat freak, an art teacher and the mother of four has its moments. Read on to see how she manages her daily juggle…

the jack-of-all-trades

Our next Parenting Juggle guest holds a special place in my heart. You see, when I was still very young and naive and dying to work in magazines, Justine Stafford must’ve seen the burning desire in my eyes and gave me the chance that I needed. So my career in magazines started out with me as the receptionist at seventeen magazine when Justine was editor. About a year later I managed to land the sub-editor position when the current sub left to pursue work in London (thanks Ingrid ;-), I’ve never looked back!). Having Justine as a mentor was at times very tough but mostly very rewarding. She taught me too much to go into detail here. Now, after 10 years and some different jobs for both of us along the way, we are back working on projects together at John Brown Media. Justine is the Content Director for Fashion Retail at John Brown. Her husband, Paul, is the National Sales Manager at Mimecast SA, and together they have two super cute daughters, Erin, 5, and Isla, 2. Here, Justine shares her daily juggle…

the multitasker

The first time I met Kathryn Rossiter from the blog Becoming You was at a blogger get together where she boldly came up to me and introduced herself. Turns out we actually went to the same high school. I don’t remember this, but I also don’t remember some of the people in my own class, so no biggie. Then we bumped into each other many times after that, at many launches, getting to know each other a little more. Kathryn has three kids – Ben (6), Abi (3) and Becoming You (her blog, her baby!). She blogs to remind herself that she is more than ‘just someone’s mom’, which we can 100% identify with. Her husband, Brad, is Area Manager for Seattle Coffee Co and they met on a blind date! Kathryn loves God, chocolate, travelling, photography, blogging, good food, shabby chic interiors, beauty products, movies, wine, Amarula, spending time with her girlfriends and dancing to cheesy music. Here she shares her juggling act…
