Welcome To My World…

meHello dear reader!

It is such a privilege for me to welcome you into my fabulously fierce, funky and fun world.

My name is Yolanda and writing has been a passion of mine since forever. Publishing a blog was also on my to-do list, but then life (as most of us will know), happened and I had to set my dreams -temporarily- aside.

But here I am!

Finally taking the plunge and stepping into the blogging world. I really can’t wait to share all of my adventures (being a single mommy, trying to live healthy, working full time, finding my roots etc) with you.

The purpose of my blog is primarily to share how I am experiencing life as a (Coloured?!) South African woman; the good the bad and the -hopeful minimum- ugly.

You might be wondering where Sassy Samy is coming from and why you must follow my blog posts? Truth be told I’m just a regular girl-next-door who’s trying to find her spot in the sun. By the way, Samy derives from squishing all my initials together. Sassy is just well, one word that sums me up 😀 -And it’s also an acronym for South African Single Sexy and Young. Coincidence? I think not 😉

So, to sum up my very first official post, I am Yolanda and it I can’t wait to share my stories and ideas with you.

Hopefully we’ll be able to laugh, live and learn from each other. Heaven knows this is exactly what we need to escape, even if it’s just for a teeny tiny moment in time, the somewhat harsh realities in our lives.

It was awesome talking to you and please, don’t be a stranger now!
