Remember that time I made a popcorn cake for my birthday? It feels like a lifetime ago. Let me reintroduce myself… because well, that was pre-covid.

I’m Susann. Pronounced almost as Su(e)-Sun but with a double ‘n’ at the end to soften it. In my family they call me San (or Sun). I have 2 cousins and an aunt with the same first name… on one side of the family and we were all named after my grandmother. The other 3 all call themselves Susan. Do you understand why I had to have that extra ‘n’ at the end of my name now?

I’m married to an Irishman🍀 for almost 11 years now. He stood by my side through 6 years of infertility treatments and 2 kids through surrogacy.

My girls are now 4 and 2. The eldest, Lexa, is obsessed with Elsa and sings Let It Go 1000 times a day. She is also our little actress with one advert to her acting credits. Littles, or Kitten, loves cats and her Barbies – and she loves to say “I don’t know” and “go away mommy” but she also gives the best kisses. We also have 2 black cats, Penny and Sandton. They are both adopted from animal shelters and have very distinct personalities.

We live in Johannesburg, without a garden… and lockdown has highlighted the need for our own green space. So, fingers crossed.

2021 will be our year of staying at home and exploring our own country again. Growing my business @geekmediacoza and employing more women.


Susann is a travel, parenting, beauty and lifestyle blogger in Johannesburg, South Africa.
