Olly Polly Read

November 13, 2017

Our homes are filled with Tv’s, iPads and computers, yet no medium can stir the imagination like a good book. Books take us to new places, introduce us to friends we would never have met and teaches us far more than that which is just written… A child’s love for reading and their ability to read all starts with the opening of “that 1st book”. Olly Polly Kids knows this and with their incredible love for all things local, they just…

Now let me start by saying, I pride myself on knowing the best in the biz, well at least when it come to kid’s fashion.

Momsy: Breastfeeding in style and ease.

October 18, 2017

I LOVE being a woman, a mama and raising our girl gang. I also LOVE breastfeeding, but when it comes to nursing-friendly fashion… things tend to become somewhat sad, boring and predictable. V-necks, wrap dresses, awkward zips and openings. Garments more practical than pretty. That was exactly why mompreneur, Louzelle van Dyk decided to create Momsy. Beautifully designed clothes for the nursing mom. The 1st design of the collection being… The Momsy! Simplistic and elegant. A maternity and nursing dress that…

#Twinningplusone : By Roeline & Co.

September 15, 2017

Never a huge fan of dressing alike, and way too obsessed with individuality, I could spent hours choosing unique and different outfits for Eliana and Lia. That was until Lia decided she wanted to be a little mini-me to her big sis… (not something Eliana supports). Now, eager to please both our girls, I spend hours finding outfits that are “same, same but different” – bonus points if I can shop these outfits in one spot and they tick all the…

In honour of SA National book week 2017, I thought it would be a good time to kick off our monthly book club! Yay, finally. Being a reading family, books have come in handy more than once, assisting us in parenting better. Not that we read a lot of parenting books, I’ve found they make excellent flower presses and paper weights – maybe I’ll get to reading one once my grandchildren arrive… No, rather as parenting aids, helping our girls…
