Lady Ponder

A blog for the real and contemporary woman


About Me

lady_ponder_profileI’m Cindy, the main Blogging lady behind Lady Ponder. I live in the very beautiful and very chaotic South Africa. I am a 30 something daughter, full-time career woman, blogger, fashionista, philosopher and most importantly a mom to two adorable boys.

I live for spending quality time with my family. My boys are my greatest accomplishment in life. From the moment my first son was born, I experienced an incomprehensible love, and I was changed forever. They give me a higher purpose; they are my breath, my life, my everything.


I love the sea, and I love exploring with my boys.


I’m also passionate about everything on the subject of motherhood VS womanhood, the real truth about…well everything, human behavior, relationships and on a lighter note, fashion, good food and wine, pregnancy, natural childbirth, kids and all things beautiful in life. ladyponder2

I am a Christian, and I live in gratitude to my Creator.

I ponder allot….about allot….

I greatly aspire to be a better person, this is naturally a day-to-day battle, and I am nowhere close. I am literally trying daily to be more selfless, loving, humble, grateful, kind and courageous, and to live and enjoy an extraordinary life filled with love, passion, beauty and poise. I desire to be honest and truly confident, yet authentically humble.

My hope is to relate to woman around the world where my life and experiences thus far allow me to, and to tell it as it is, or rather as I see it. I hope to inspire woman somehow in some way, and I hope to be inspired by like-minded woman and friends I will meet on this journey. I created this blog with the intention of connecting & creating a community of women that support, empower and inspire one another, bringing us all closer to fulfilling our own life’s mission, or finding our own purpose.

To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to leave the world a little better whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived, this is to have succeeded. – Ralph Waldo Emerson

    Hi Cindy,

    What a beautiful blog you have…Congratulations on your precious new baby boy…

    I am a mummy of two now as well and I completely understand the posts that you have made. I feel like you have been reading my mind. From the minute my babies entered my life, there has been an instant love that is unexplainable. Being a mother is by far the most rewarding, most joyous role of my life and I love every single minute of it. Ok the minute when I want to burst out crying because it can become overwhelming I may not think I love it that much! LOL but once things settle you realise how blessed you are that you have these precious souls that belong to you and you alone…

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts and all the questions you have, no doubt most mums have the same questions and its so good to realise there are mums just like you out there!

    Looking forward to whats in store…

    Have a lovely day!
