Hello, and welcome to Francis Blossoms! Francis Blossoms is a lifestyle blog with an eye for clean and minimalist design in all areas of life.

My name is Donne, pronounced “Don” + “ey”. My fiance, Jarryd, and I live in South Africa along the coast in a little house with our two dogs, Stella and Luna.

I started this blog in May 2019 to create a space where I can share my affinity for simple living in and around the home as well as to document bits and pieces of this absolutely amazing journey that is life. I love to read, make smoothies, and travel the world. And I have an unhealthy obsession with all things grey, flowers, and all things natural.

Why the name Francis blossoms? I really wanted to find something that would be easy to remember yet remain personal. On May 25, 2019, I will be marrying my best friend, celebrating with my nearest and dearest, and will also be gaining a new last name, Francis. Along with my unhealthy obsession with flowers, I am so excited to adventure into everything that will blossom out of this journey together.

Thanks for stopping by! I’m a huge fan of women empowering women. Feel free to leave a comment or contact me here. I’d love to hear from you!

Happy reading!

No rain, no flowers.
