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 last year. 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.
There are certain things in my head that epitomize motherhood and family. The routines of everyday life, school drop offs and pickups, sports days, storytime before bed, snuggling in pjs with popcorn watching series or movies, colouring in, a roast dinner and a long Sunday afternoon drive. And then there is the family holiday …
Potty training is not fun. I have been mostly incredibly blessed, because Charly’s nursery school started the process and my mom manages most of the rest. But there have been stages where we all sat in hysterical tears as well. Why did nobody tell me that surviving potty training is one of the greatest challenges moms face!!
All the giveaways all the time! Our Bunchems and Watercolour Heart giveaways have been closed and I am announcing the first of our Christmas 2017 winners right now!! There are more to enter, so just pop over here and DO IT!!
MamaMagic was such an awesome event. I was there to speak about #CarseatFullstop and keeping little humans safe in cars, but I spent a few hours every day seeking out special brands that I had either worked with in the past year or that I would like to share with all of you! One of the coolest brands I came across was Real Kids Shades (who was a MamaMagic finalist in the Safety category) the “mostly” indestructible sunglasses for kids.
I am officially BACK! So you may very well get sick of me. Before I start telling you how awesome b.box goodies are, Just letting you know that I will be announcing the winners of the Bunchems giveaway and the Watercolour Heart giveaway some time between today and Monday, so be sure to pop over and see if you are a winner! Ok, let’s do this! We are celebrating the fast approaching end of 2016 (good riddance) and Christmas, my very very favourite time of year! [Read more…]
Bunchems of fun… hahahaha… I can’t stop giggling! Probably because I am overtired and should be asleep, but also because I love being punny… Hahahaha. Ok, enough, I promise! It is funny and adorable, BUT it is also true! Bunchems is the most awesome And, if you are patient and read allll the way to the end, you stand a chance to win a Bunchems Mega Pack valued at R500 for your small to middle sized human for Christmas! **Winner announced**.
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…
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. So I thought, while I was doing that, I’d make up for my absence by giving one of you your very own Volvo car seat! Seems only fair 😉 Our winner was announced here. For enquiries on the Volvo seats, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org.
