It’s that time of the week again! Friday has come around and with it, a weekly round up of what we consider the best articles and blog posts from the last seven days.
On Sunday, Samantha posted an article reminding us of how powerful we truly are. Originally written by Robin Sharma.
You were born into greatness.
No evidence exists to suggest otherwise.
But the chattering voices of critics and cynics may have made you forget how powerful you are.
A great piece to pick you up when you’ve had a rough day, the article asks us to draw on our inner strengths and rise to our best. It’s often so easy to go through the motions from day to day, doing the minimum we need to do at work or in our home lives.
We should be doing more.
Robin writes that once we have reached our potential, we can help others along. An inspiring post, and I urge you to take a few minutes to read it. You can read the full piece here.
On Monday we launched our brand new competition to win an incredible French Affair romantic getaway for two.
La Provence d’Afrique is the perfect setting for a couple wishing to get away from it all. Husbands can surprise their wives, wives can surprise their husbands. Either way you could win this fantastic prize.
Situated just outside the village of Magaliesburg, La Provence d’Afrique is a unique concept of seven French suites built inside a beautiful stone studio sculpted by famous sculptor Charles Gotthard.

On Tuesday Josh posted an article entitled “The Magic of the Rugby World Cup.” For all you sports fans out there, this was more than a comprehensive article that detailed some of the best moments and matches from world cups of past.
Including South Africa’s incredible victory in 1995, Josh’s article spans four world cups and twelve years of rugby history. It’s well worth a read.
On Thursday we introduced a brand new feature – Savannah Says – in which our newest member of the Life Retreat team, Savannah, will keep updating regularly. It’s a mini blog inside our main blog, but we would love you guys to read her articles because they offer new and fresh topics that we may not cover on the rest of Life Retreat.
Savannah says: Welcome welcome welcome. I have recently been welcomed on board with Life Retreat, and, I will be blogging on a regular basis. Our blog/shopping website is aimed to inspire you to live a healthy, happy and balanced lifestyle. I, personally know that this is not always easy. But I try to do my best. One of my favourite sayings is that “my path to Heaven, is paved with good intentions.”
You can keep up to date with all “Savannah Says” updates by selecting ‘Contact’ and then ‘Savannah Says’ on the homepage. To read her first blog post in full, click here.
Finally, this morning Samantha posted an articled entitled “I Got The Becca Glow”, a brilliant piece on the beauty and cosmetics brand ‘Becca’.
An awesome review of 10 products in the ‘Becca’ range, this is an article for all the beauty and cosmetics fans.
You can read the full, detailed article from Samantha here.
So that’s our weekly round up from Life Retreat. As we move into August, we will be bringing you much more original content: entertaining, informative and dedicated to you guys. “Savannah Says” will bring a whole new dimension to Life Retreat, and of course we will be posting regular fashion, beauty, nutrition, health and sporting articles. And on top of all of that, our competitions will continue to offer you the chance to win incredible prizes.
We’re excited about what’s to come!
