The Author

I am Cathy Hayward. A 23 yr old wife, artist, home maker, illustrator, proud South African, minimalist and happy Mormon.

hiI believe in curating our lives with an intent to make space for the things that add the most value to our individual experience, while living in a way that adds value to the experience of others.

Join me as I share my experiences of the beauty and value in intentional living through art musing, home making and life living all from my home studio in  Pretoria, Sunny South Africa.

Here is a little about me and the life I have lived so far.


I am blessed with the most amazing man. Duncan Hayward. We met in High School and started dating in Grade 11, 5 years ago. In 2016, on the 17th of September we were married for all time and eternity in the Johannesburg Temple. I couldn’t have asked for anyone better to spend my life with.



I was born in Pretoria, Sunny South Africa on the 24 of March 1995. South Africa is my homeland, it is the only homeland I know. I grew up in a home full of colorful chaos and lots of love with my parents and baby brother (in spite of the fact that he is already 19, he will always be my baby brother).

And now as my husband and I have been married my family has grown and will continue to do so.



I belong to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (more commonly known as Mormon), click here or here to know more. I am forever grateful for the knowledge of the fact that we have a loving Father in Heaven and a Saviour that we can look to for hope, love and guidance, no matter the circumstance.



I attended Irene Primary School and Sutherland High School in Centurion and recently acquired my Bachelors Degree in Design, specializing in Interior Design at Inscape Education Group.
