{WIN} Milly & Me wrap dresses in Cape Town.


I don’t know about you but I am always on the search for a single clothing item that is fit for any occasion. Something I can always rely on to be my ‘go to’ item for any event, smart or casual. Something that is comfortable and classic, flattering and classy. Enter the Milly & me wrap dress. 

I must be honest, I haven’t seen a wrap dress like this in any shop I have been in to, despite the simplistic design. Less is always more I say. Sometimes the most classic things are the hardest to find. Paired with flat shoes / sandals for a more casual event and heels for a smarter occasion, the Milly & Me wrap dress is incredibly versatile to take you from AM – PM.

{RECIPE} Healthy, baby friendly date balls.


Upon making these, I knew I had to share the recipe with you. These little balls of deliciousness take about 10 minutes to make. They are packed full of goodness and are a filling delicious snack, perfect for the entire family to eat. Micah adores them.

The best part? Jordan thinks they are novelty, as in, REAL chocolate. He is obsessed with them and is ecstatic when the words “Jordy, would you like a chocolately ball?” come out of my mouth. “YES mommy! Thanks mommy!”. In reality there is not one grain of refined sugar in them but are just as delicious. A true hit. So for all you parents who have been on the hunt of an extra yummy, healthy snack – these are for you.

{VIDEO} Creating stories with Duplo.


One thing we love about Duplo is the endless possibility to use your imagination and to create. Whilst building sets are so wonderful, I love the fact that kids can use a combination or sets and individual blocks to create their own stories and ‘play scenes’ so effortlessly.

I have (without him knowing) watched Jordan playing with his Duplo blocks in his room and getting completely caught up in a little world of his own. Sometimes he’s an ice-cream truck driver and other times a pilot. Mostly he is a combination of both and more because the product allows for that. Every set can be used with the next and is so encouraging of free play and imagination. Micah also loves sitting with Jordan in his room and playing with the blocks while Jordan builds things.

{WIN} Spur Virtual Reality Goggles.


Guys if you’d told me even 10 years ago that virtual realty goggles were a thing, I wouldn’t believe you. Technology is moving so fast and even I (at age 30) feel too old for it. 

For those who don’t know, let me tell you a little bit about virtual reality goggles. The goggles work in conjunction with your phone which straps onto the goggles to make it work. You download virtual reality apps for your phone which you view through the goggles to give you an incredibly realistic 360′ view replica of an environment. Wether it be a forest or a museum.. you can look up, down, left and right and explore the digital environment and experience it as if you were really there. Cool hey?

Jordans Super Hero 3rd Birthday party.


Jordan had a dress up day at school a while back, they were able to wear whatever they wanted. Nic and I bought Jordy a batman mask and a cape for the occasion and since that day, Jords has been asking for a Super Hero party. Not a day goes by that Jords doesn’t give his mask and cape a spin. Poor Nic never has to go to gym a day in his life the amount of times he throws super hero Jordy into the hair and flies him around the house.
