{REVIEW} Deryan – easy, small and convenient camp cots.


I just love reviewing products that I find so darn helpful. I love sharing what makes my life easier as a mom as I know there is not one mom on earth that doesn’t wish that things could be a little easier.

Nic and I are very social and we go out often to braais, lunches, we visit family and friends and we love to travel, even if it’s simply away for a weekend. We really want Jordan to experience all of this too and try our best not to let the admin of having a toddler get in the way of …. Continue Reading

{RECIPE} Baby friendly meatballs.


Jordan really is a difficult eater. By that I mean.. anything else is far more interesting than eating which seems like such a chore to him. I have stopped spoon feeding him completely. For about a month now. He is just not interested. He is such an independent little boy and loves to figure things out for himself, even at this age. I have started ‘baby led-weaning’ if you’d like to put a name to it. Basically, Jordan feeds …. Continue Reading

On being an adult & making decisions. A few thoughts that occupy my head space.


It’s Nic’s 30th birthday on Friday. Naturally, we have been thinking and talking a lot lately about how challenging this whole ‘being an adult’ thing is. We feel so grown up! It really is tough when you still feel like such a kid at heart. Yet, there is no one to run to when times get tough and we have to rely entirely on ourselves and each other for the money that comes in and very quickly goes out of our household. It was my 10 ….

{HOME} Updated pictures of the very special place we call home x


I’ve had this post saved for almost a year but it’s finally time to share it. Our home is constantly changing and evolving so every time I want to post it, something changes. We bought our home sweet home just after we got married in December 2011. In the midst of wedding planning we were making offers on this little gem in Observatory, as we simply HAD TO have it. As we got back from our honeymoon our latest offer was accepted and since then we have not looked back. We *absolutely* love our house and our neighbourhood. We know just about all the people who live in our street and so many other people in our area. We even have a ‘Obs Moms’ …. Continue Reading

{BEAUTY} Inside my makeup bag. A few products I can’t live without.


Welcome to my first ‘beauty’ post ever. I am a huge makeup fan and although I am no guru, I am so excited to share my favourite products and a few simple tips that work for me. Because I am not a makeup artist or beauty expert, the products I use are very simple and super easy to use. I really don’t have a lot of time for makeup. Ten minutes tops. Maybe 15 if we’re going out somewhere special. I will be sharing a few products that I have discovered with you …. Continue Reading

Help save our Rhinos with CNA and WIN a R500 gift card. {closed}


Our family have a beautiful holiday house very close the border of the Kruger National Park. We have been so blessed to be able to visit that house during many holidays growing up. As kids we were so exposed to all the beautiful wildlife our country has to offer. It’s so very dear and close to my heart. We spend so many balmy evenings sitting in bird hides at water holes, watching the animals, some with babies, all gathering around to drink or bath themselves …. Continue Reading

{RESULTS} My 5 day ‘Skinny Juice Co’ cleanse. Giveaway closed.


I DID IT! Thanks to The Skinny Juice Co, I completed my first 5 day juice cleanse. Read my first post all about it here. Listen, it was not easy and I am embarrassed to admit that I did cheat a teensy bit but I still finished it and I am SO proud. I have to be honest with you all otherwise what’s the point, right? Here are my physical results:

Weight loss
I started the cleanse at 54.5KG and lost a little …. Continue Reading
