ToyTOGGLE: A product that every mom needs.. and a chance to WIN one of three x


I have discovered a product that I simply cannot live without. If your baby still makes use of a high chair / pram / car seat – this product will change your life. I am not quite sure how this didn’t exist before now, or the fact that it wasn’t a part of my life sooner.

Jords absolutely adores throwing his toys off his high chair leaving them covered in dog hair / slobber from Banjoe who very cleverly waits below for things to drop to his level. I used to have to wipe …. Continue Reading

Tired and a bit frustrated, but forever grateful.


This parenting gig is NO joke let me tell you. If you are a parent then of course you’ll know. As someone who usually has a grip on everything, I have never felt more challenged in my entire life. Not necessarily a bad thing.

Seven and a half months in, this is the first time I feel totally helpless. Jordan has always been an incredibly curious little boy. He watches people and things with such intense …. Continue Reading

Mambo’s – Pastics Warehouse.. and SO much more!


Last week I attended the launch of the great Mambo’s Plastic Warehouse in GreenPoint, Cape Town. I nearly lost it like a 5-year-old with a new spider man toy. Mambo’s is the biggest store I have seen in a while, with massive isles filled with *everything* I love the most. I was instantly in my element and blocked out the world as I made my way through this glorious store.

I received such a wonderful hamper from Checkers Baby the other day. The hamper was beautifully packaged and *filled* with really helpful goodies from wet wipes to baby lotions, Vaseline’s to shampoo, a baby blankie and a sippy cup. Also included in the hamper was some lovely teething toys (SO helpful right now), Purity rusks and delicious strawberry and rooibos baby tea and some yummy baby snacking goodies. What an amazing hamper!?

Hop & seek with Woolworths.


Yesterday we received the most gorgeous Easter basket FILLED with wonderful treats from Woolworths. We were blown away with the attention to detail that filled our wooden Easter crate. A country road baby-grow for Jordan (in the right size), a big cuddly bunny which we’ve decided to name ‘Mr.Hop’, a big pile of chocolate eggs and bunnies which I will be feasting on for days to come and handwritten card. Jordan had a ball playing with all the little goodies.. …. Continue Reading

Tapas, lunch & craft beer at The Roundhouse.


On Sunday we visited The Roundhouse for the very first time. I feel totally robbed that we didn’t discover The Roundhouse sooner. As the manager, Mike, explained to us ‘The Roundhouse’ is Cape Towns best kept secret – such truth. When I tweeted (as one does) saying that we are on our way to The RoundHouse, a flood of jealous comments came pouring in from friends who absolutely adore the place. This of course made me even more excited to arrive.

We were greeted by the lovely Manager Mike and we had a very friendly waitress who was …. Continue Reading
