Whose little one is going to be lighting up this Christmas when they see their gorgeous new Alilo Honey Bunny with his light up ears? One of you! I am so excited to give somebody this amazing gift I can’t even tell you!! Charly and Lilo had great fun choosing our winner today. So… Are you our Alilo Honey Bunny winner?!
Some of you might have noticed I was a little bit impressed by the Kids Emporium event I attended a few months ago… What with my mentioning the event, the attendees, the brand, the owner, the coffee mugs and, of course, the amazing gift I received for Charly, the Alilo Honey Bunny (named Lilo) that my child is obsessed with. Let me tell you why…
I am just going to start sharing again. So very very much has happened over the past 4 months. I can’t believe it has been a whole four months. I feel so disappointed in myself for having dropped the ball here, but I am having to let that go. I’m not going to do a whole what’s happened post, because I started one and I hadn’t got through the first week and it was almost 2,000 words. Instead, I am going to share bits and pieces as we go along. I want to keep moving forward. It’s been hard, but in the past few months I have been learning to look after me again.
You guys know I don’t drive very far very often, but I travelled all the way out to Kraaifontein for Bugz Playpark. And it was worth every single second! Bugz invited myself and my family to spend the day as VIPs in their playpark. My mom, sister, niece, Charly and I decided to kick off the September holidays with a proper spoil and headed through early one morning. My sister had been once before and told me how wonderful it was, but she didn’t do it justice. It is genuinely paradise for kids.
Hello again lovelies! It is almost time for me to come back to you properly (and just in time for me to start preparing you for Christmas!!). This week marks the last week of my #CarseatFullstop campaign. I have a million things to do and a million more plans for the future, but I am going to take a proper breather (like a day or two of nothing but Charly) in the school holidays. And I have so much to say and share and tell you about! It has been an insane, but rewarding few months! But enough about that… It is time for what you have all been waiting for!!! Are you my Volvo Britax winner?? [Read more…]
Hello everybody!! Sorry for the delay in winner announcement. As you can see below, the winner draw isn’t always the easiest of things to manage But with some running around like a crazy person and some scene changes, we did get a winning number and we have a winner for our beautiful Malaville Malina!
I decided to start the weekend right, by doing ANOTHER giveaway! Many of you will have seen the gorgeous Malaville Dolls that Charly received from Toy Kingdom a few weeks ago. We loved them so much I asked them veeeeeery nicely if I could have one to give away to one of my amazing readers… And they said yes! Yay Toy Kingdom! COMPETITION CLOSED – Winner announced here!
Everybody knows by now that I have been invisible to you guys the past few months because of my car seat campaign #CarseatFullstop. You also know I turned Charly back rearwards-facing and I promised I would tell you all about it and review the Volvo Britax car seat. Sadly the Volvo car seats are not currently available in South Africa 22.08.17 I will update when they are available again.
I am halfway through a nice “I’m back” post, and I promise I will finish it. I didn’t want to just jump straight back into the car seat business. I even have giveaways for you guys for the next 2 months to make up for deserting you for so long while I made that my focus. But I just HAVE to write about this right now. You guys may be sick of my #CarseatFullstop campaign. You may be sick of seeing articles all over all the parenting blogs. You may be sick of seeing my name or my face or hearing me on the radio. Fair warning, I am going to be in a few print magazines in November as well. Although the campaign ends at the end of September, I don’t think it is ever going to end with me. And THIS is why. THIS is NOT ok!!
I have been very scarce here of late and I am sorry. I am missing writing and sharing, but my heart and all my attention has been focused on putting together a national car seat awareness campaign for South Africa called #CarseatFullstop.
This Yookidoo giveaway has been one of my very favourites! I have loved the excitement and enthusiasm you have all shown for the brand and the toys themselves I love it when something I love is loved as much by you all!! It makes my heart happy. And it makes my heart extra happy that I get to make one of you a Yookidoo winner! [Read more…]
When I was pregnant I spent hours in the bath watching Charly move around in my tummy, she loved the water even then. The bath is still her favourite place to be. Because of that, over the past 2 years we have accumulated quite a collection of bath toys. Bath crayons, bath beads, gels, bubbles, sponges, bath stickers, bath faces, boats, cups, watering cans… Her favourite by far was the Yookidoo Flow n Fill I got her for Christmas. Before Yookidoo South Africa sent us 2 new ones to try for International Bath Day (today, 14 June). [Read more…]
