11 months, oh baby! This post is 10 days late, someone has been keeping me very busy. I haven’t done a baby update since she was 7 months old, so A LOT has happened. I’m not sure if she falls into the baby category anymore?! How are you guys holding up in this weather? I know it’s not freezing, but this rain has brought some nippiness and crazy traffic!   […]

Thoughts before my 30th birthday

Turning 30; 30th birthday

I’m currently on a workcation in Europe, which means that I’ve had some time to think. Truly and deeply. Not just the kind of thinking that requires me to just get through my to-do list. This trip couldn’t have come at a better time because I’m due to sign up for my membership to the Dirty-Thirty Club in just a few days. I never thought I would be excited to turn thirty. Never. […]

Lesedi’s superhero picnic birthday party

I had two big projects over the festive season, the first of them being Lesedi’s birthday party. I was really excited on his behalf, because it had been 3 years since we had a party for him. We always celebrate and take him out on his day; but the timing for a party is always off since his birthday is on December 31st. Most people are away or doing their […]

{TOY KINGDOM} Top 50 children’s toys this Christmas

My babies and I ventured to Toy Kingdom in Sandton City after we received a gif card to experience Africa’s most loved toy store. I decided that the best day to go would be on Lesedi’s last day of school. He received his school report and has done incredibly well this year, despite all the changes he has had to grow through this year – new house, new sibling, and […]

{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. As you know I had surgery for a burst appendix, catch the story in my latest life and baby update, and I also spent quite a lot of time away from home due to work commitments. I feel slightly out of touch considering all that has […]
