My first goal for 2017 – To Play More

Happy New Year Mama’s! This is the time that we set sights on our new goals for the year. Over the festive period, I took some time to reflect on the things I would like to achieve this year.

{Brands We Love} November


It’s the first of December Mamas – I really can’t believe it. November was one of the toughest and most stressful months for me.

Fashion Fix with EXACT clothing


My little man has always loved his fashion – although lately, he seems to prefer being in just his shorts due to his “4-pack”. From 3 years old, he already had good idea of what constitutes a great ensemble, he would beg me to buy him ties and belts. So with all the pressure to be dressed like a King, it’s assuring to find stores such as EXACT, who cater […]
