I’m Londy Ngcobo, a Ship Navigator by profession best known as The @blaqmermaid. I used to think that coffee was overrated, and being a seafarer I hardly imagined a life of diapers and dinner preps until I took on a role of being a wife to my best friend of 15 years and became a mother to a now 4-year-old Afro princess who’s been demanding a little sister since she turned 2. Now I live on both coffee and bubbly.
My deepest passion lies in bringing the best out of people but I relate to mothers the most, particularly those who wish to explore their highest potential in life, be fully present for their families but also own up to “ me-time” GUILT-FREE!
Mamas Escape Club is my all in one ESCAPE, having a community where one gets to learn from conscious and authentic motherhood stories, support mompreneurs and be inspired daily is really all a Mama needs, needless to say, some days I’ve gone without a cuppa nor glass because the community itself has given me so much life.
With only 3 years as a community, we are proud to hold the 2018 Black Excellence – Best Support Group Award and continue to grow as thriving moms who simply want to live life on our own terms.
An escape for me is indulging in a bubble bath while listening to soothing music, uninterruptedly. Or simply taking a walk all by myself.
My ideal escape is staying in bed longer than usual, going for a movie just by myself, a glass of wine with the girls or a drive out of town.
The ideal escape for me is a day at the salon. A new hairdo, manicure & pedicure does it for me.
For me, the ideal me-time is the strong black cup of black coffee, a glass of red wine or better yet, my solo drives where I get to blast my radio and sing my heart out.
