About Me

Who is Gretha Garnett?

I am a qualified biokineticist, a wife, a mother and a health and fitness enthusiast. I love a good cup of coffee and my ultimate favorite, is a glass of bubbly to celebrate or just because.

I have a passion for people and I love sharing my stories with them. It brings me great joy if I can help someone through my personal experiences or my professional background and knowledge. I am a “what you see is what you get” kind of girl, down to earth, and I call a spade a spade.

Why Beans & Bubbles?

Two things comes to mind…


Nothing beats the smell and the taste of a good cup of coffee. One of the reasons I fell in love with my husband back then (which is a story in its own).


What can beat a tasty glass of bubbly? And, it usually goes hand-in-hand with some sort of celebration (or not). And who doesn't enjoy happy celebrations?
