~The Woman. The Wife. The Mother. ~

My name is Anastasiya Meintjes and welcome to my blog, Anniemotion.


I blog about pregnancy, parenting and lifestyle; creating a space for moms to find support and advice through motherhood, as well as their relationships and lifestyles. I share my personal and honest opinions for things I love and believe in.

I originally started this blog a few years ago because of my love for writing and I needed a space to share. Since then it has turned into so much more and all the love and support I received from my readers has been amazing!

Our little family is based in Pretoria, South Africa and here is where all our adventures happen.

A little about me: I’m a lover of books, chocolates, polka dots and headbands. I’m also a big tea lover so if we ever meet, expect a teapot on the table! When I have any free time, I doodle or paint, and recently, I’ve taken a liking to baking so every week, there’s something yummy happening in the kitchen.

HB and I got married in 2012 and it has been an amazing journey ever since. Like any marriage, we have our ups and downs, but together, we get through them all. In his spare time, he coaches rugby at one of our local clubs, and we make sure to support each other’s dreams, even though the commitments sometimes mean less time together.20729365_1670128212999489_5816438461324087544_n

We have two boys, nicknamed Monster and Gremlin; and boy, do they keep our lives interesting. We became parents at a young age, and while we’re raising kids, we’re learning so much more about ourselves as time goes on.


I’m a stay at home mom to them, and we homeschool them. So far, it’s been a rocky adventure, nonetheless, a learning one.

We’re also expecting our daughter, Cam, early next year so our household will be in slight chaos pretty soon. More kids, more troubles, right?22886272_1747549645257345_1034833762769938070_n

  2. Dear Annie,
    I must say your site is a very enjoyable read. My fellow blogger, Arend van Nerel, whom I share a blog with, has been following your for a while now. On his advice, I decided to nominate you for a Liebster Award: http://randomnessessities.com/2013/10/29/im-a-beliebster-lester-beavers-acceptance-speech-for-his-liebster-award/ Congratulations! Whether you choose to accept this award is of course entirely up to you, but I felt you were at the very least deserving of the nomination.
    Kind regards
