Kids Pizza Recipe + WIN R1000 YuppieChef Voucher

Pizza is always a good idea, even more so on Friday’s when you don’t want to be spending more time in the kitchen than you should. We like to end of the week on an exciting note, which is a tradition my mom started when we were growing up and I’ve tried to carry this with the kids . We knew that Friday’s would be reserved for treat meals. I’m […]

Protecting your family against germs and flu this winter + Giveaway

Having spent the last three weeks in-and-out of the Doctors office with Khumo, I regret not starting the pre-winter season with some healthier habits in-and-around our home. She started off with a cold, then developed nasal drip, with symptoms that worsened every night. Of course, one never wants to rush to the doctor for every single symptom, but after a few days of endless nose-blowing, coughing and a fever, something […]

Cartoon Network: UniKitty + WIN tickets to CN Live!

The screen-time battle is a reality for most parents. This year, I’ve been able to manage the screen time in our household a lot more, largely due to the fact that Sedi in ‘senior’ primary now and is focusing more on the endless projects, cycle tests and his love for soccer; while Khumo spends half of her day in play school . I have also found that the two of […]

Introducing Spree Gallery

I’m often shy to experiment with fashion, so much so, that I hardly buy anything for myself without my sisters stamp of approval. Partly because I’m no-fashionista and partly because I’m quiet conservative and I always want to be comfortable enough to go from roughing it with the kids to dinner with the girls (sneakers to heels kinda thing). Hearing about the launch of #SpreeGallery caught my attention largely because […]

Royal Easter Bunny Butter Cookies recipe

Easter Bunny Butter Cookies

Easter weekend is all about family, reflection and gratitude and I sure made the most of mine. The kids spent their time between home and Gogo’s house and I decided to use some of the time away from them to spoil them with a special treat, which sounded like a fair trade! I may not be the best asset in the kitchen, but I had so much fun making these Easter […]

Launching a reading centre with MySchool – shining the light on literacy in South Africa!

MySchool MyVillage MyPlanet

What could you be and how much more could achieve, if you had someone you look up to dedicating their time and energy towards your growth and development? Wouldn’t it be life changing? Imagine the impact of this in the life of a child, growing up in an under-resourced and overcrowded squatter camp, with very few role models within reach. This week, I had the opportunity to be part of an […]

{Healthy living} 15 simple tips for the whole family

During both my pregnancies, I remember praying, wishing and hoping for a healthy baby; It’s all I wanted. I went to every scan, paid attention to food labels, took prenatal supplements (as repulsive as I found the folic acid) and I took the time to rest when it was needed. To this day, the health of my children remains a top priority and something I never want to take for […]

Introducing Future Nation Schools

I’ll never forget how challenging it was to find a school for my little man – after three years of endless applications, we still had not secured a school for him six months before he was due to start grade 1. Before making any school application, it is important to consider the kind of school that you want your child to attend and the future impact it will have on […]

Khumo has started play school and Lesedi is in grade […]

Lunch treats with Dr. Oetker

Dr.Oetker pizza; #LunchBoxWars

So it’s been an interesting and chaotic week, not only are we still trying to get back into the school routine, but we have also been without our heroic nanny this week, because she has had to take a few days off to attend to a family emergency. If I’m honest, I really suck at managing my own household, she’s really the glue that holds us together. I battle to […]
