Our secret hideout… with Tiny Tribe and Migi Designs

March 5, 2017

Nowadays we have access to such a wide variety of home decor items, clothing and baby ranges. I am getting lost in online shopping for our two girls. The variety online is incomparable, and with inexpensive courier services or even free at times, I’m finding it more manageable to recreate that Pinterest look! As I discover unique ranges, I’m passionate to share them with you. I’m so impressed with our South African entrepreneurs. Many of these ranges have achieved international standard in terms of quality and…

Show-off in Shooshoos

January 25, 2017

Shooshoos™ are designed and 100% manufactured in Cape Town, South Africa. They produce beautiful baby and toddler shoes while uplifting disadvantaged communities. I’ve always known that Shooshoos™ were around (family and friends,) but could never quite understand why they were so popular until I had my own baby. For the first 5 months of Hazel’s life, whenever I dressed her in cute “normal” shoes (I spent so much enthusiasm on acquiring while pregnant,) they would stay on exactly 5 minutes before slipping off.  From the age…

The Healthy Way…… Go Green Smoothie

July 24, 2016

We like to start our day with a whole lot of wholesomeness. Whatever I have in the fridge, that’s what goes into our blender. I try to include: 40% leaves, 40% fruit, 10% superfood. Today’s was spinach + kiwi, strawberry and pear + cranberries, flax seeds, maca powder. If I know my husband and Hazel has one of these every day, I don’t mind too much what they have the rest of the day. At least they had their daily dose of goodness…

Hazel turns One

July 11, 2016

Baby’s first birthday… what’s the big deal? Choose a theme and run with it. Elephant it was. Purchased napkins and marshmallows. What more do you need? Then I attended a close friend’s party and she DIY’d the whole story! It was so special. I could feel her mother’s touch. Rather than spending loads of cash, she thoughtfully crafted every detail at the party with love. She told me how she made her fondant cake and I thought, I CAN DO THIS! I…
