A must-visit this holiday – The Ice Slide at Cape Gate {GIVEAWAY}

We were invited to experience the Ice Slides at Cape Gate Shopping Centre this past Saturday, and let me tell you – the trip to the Northern Suburbs was well worth it. The kids had an absolute blast, so much so that they are begging to go back. A tip, get there early – it […]

How I’m Hoping Baby Signing Will Save My Sanity & Help Us Bond

I was recently introduced to the world of baby signing by watching one of my favourite babies on Instagram, Stevie, grasp it with such ease. Luckily for me, her momma decided to launch Signing Baby, making it easy for us to also teach our little ones how to sign! We all know that babies communicate […]

Feeling All Touched- Out

For the longest time I did not have the words to describe how I am feeling. I thought it was just my anxiety acting up, or a side-effect of PPD. But I realized what it was during this last growth spurt, as my husband handed Nova to me for what felt like the millionth time […]

Our Weekly Update 09/06

HAPPY (END OF THE) WEEKEND! Or happy almost Monday? I don’t know. Better late than never. I have had such a non-eventful week… sleeping, working, changing nappies, trying not to get poop under my fingernails and being everyone’s snack bitch. That’s about it. I wanted to get this update out into the world on Saturday, […]

My Acrylic Planner from Ma Petite (+ Discount )

This year has brought so many changes into my life, it has been hard to keep up. Juggling being a mom, planning the schedules of a household of five and running two companies is tough. It is a little tougher when you just popped a baby out and the brain fog has not quite lifted… […]

Weekly Update! 01/06

HAPPY WEEKEND! Yeah, I know… It’s almost over. I am still trying to figure out how to do all of this with three kids (especially with one of them being only 9 weeks old). I hope your weekend has been amazing so far and that you get some time to fill up your metaphorical cup. Anyway, […]

Father’s Day Gift Guide

Sunday, 16 June is Father’s Day in South Africa, and we want to celebrate our amazing baby daddies by getting them something unique, awesome, and fit for the (I know I speak for many of us here) big kids they are. For all the diaper changes, tag teaming midnight feeds, letting your daughter paint their […]

Nova’s Newborn Photoshoot

I have been posting sneaky previews of Nova’s newborn photo shoot to my Instagram these past few weeks… I finally had a moment to sit and pull them together. It was supposed to be a birth photography session, but as with all our children’s births – it just did not quite go according to plan […]

Our Weekly Update!

HAPPY WEEKEND! And what a week it has been. I am pretty darn exhausted. This entire month has been challenging, with my husband being retrenched and us having to share a car for the first time since 2011! I know, first world problems. So much is changing, my anxiety and I do not like change. We […]

Nova’s Birth Story

I am 8 weeks postpartum, its 4:05 am in the morning and I felt the intense urge to pen down the newest addition to our family’s birth story. Crazy right? The thing is, I am forgetting things lately… and I want to remember this. Things happened so fast that we could not have our birth […]
