To the Girl who never wants those “things”…

To The Girl Who Never Wants Those “Things”… I cant say that I understand, being a mom has been my biggest dream, in fact when I were asked what I wanted to be when I grow up in pre-primary I didn’t even think twice – “n mamma” was my answer and I were confident and proud about that, despite of all the laughter that were echoing through the school hall.

Jungle Themed Activities

Childs Farm – Bringing a Gentle Touch to Sensitive Skin

Childs Farm – Bringing a Gentle Touch to Sensitive Skin But who said gentle means boring, dull, and fragranceless. That’s kind of the assumption we make when we hear of products made for sensitive or eczema prone skin, isn’t it? But Childs Farm is so much more than that. Our family is constantly searching for products that are not only affordable, but also value for money, but lately there is

Pre-Loved or Pre-Owned

Pre-Loved or Pre-Owned What goes through your mind when you hear the words “pre-loved” or “second hand”? Maybe you’re one of the moms who have been doing it for years, be it to save some money here and there, or to help preserve the planet or maybe you’re one of the moms who think “no thank you – not for me”.

An Unlikely Influence

An Unlikely Influence We all have that special person in our lives, you know, the one who becomes that little voice inside of your head when the going gets tough, when the tough gets rough and when you feel like you’ve had enough. That ONE person who you admired as a young boy or girl, that you eventually started looking up to, and then one day realize that, that ONE

Ditsong National Museum of Natural History

Ditsong National Museum of Natural History Aryan has been having a little, nah who am I kidding, MAJOR dinosaur obsession for a while now. He has an impressive dinosaur book collection, his fair share of dinosaur toys and even some clothes.

If you have read the “10 facts about me” post, you pretty much know all there is about me. Yup, I can pretty much sum me up in 10 facts. I actually hate writing about myself, I never quite know what to say, I’m definitely a behind

Koningskind Aktiwiteitsboks

Koningskind Aktiwiteitsboks – An Activity Box with a Twist When I saw the Koningskind advert on Facebook it wasn’t the attractive packaging or all of the amazing educational activities that caught my attention, no, although it was colorful and fun, I have seen so many different activity boxes doing the rounds and were even subscribed to some – all of which were colorful, fun, and educational.

Johannesburg Zoo

JOHANNESBURG ZOO Ever since I can remember Aryan has had a unique interest in wild animals. He roared like a lion even before he could talk and he could identify and name wild animals in books long before anything else. We, therefore, made a point out of it to visit the zoo at least once every year and it has always been a highlight for Aryan – the excitement and
