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…

Koco Bino Boutique: A taste of Europe made in South Africa

November 3, 2017

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. After all, we have 3 girls… But, I must have been asleep for the past couple of years seeing as I only recently discovered a gem in the kiddies fashion industry… Koco Bino! Established in 1978 (MY mama could’ve been a client), this quaint boutique opened its doors as Sandton City was introduced to the…

#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…

Book Club: SA National Book Week 2017

September 8, 2017

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…

Spring has sprung: A photoshoot inspired by new beginnings!

September 1, 2017

With spring in the air one can’t help but do some self-pruning and internal “housekeeping”. Self-reflection on where you find yourself and where you’d like to go. 2017 has been the year of pregnancy in our lives and July finally brought us our 3rd baby girl. Yes, we have 3 girls! 3 amazingly bubbly, diversely different, future woman of the world. Currently we are in the midst of newborn life, toddler emotions and preschool concert prep. Our home is a…

#TwinningPlusOne: Schnooky Pie

August 17, 2017

We have always been passionate about supporting local, shopping small (in the hope the brand will grow BIG) and being proudly South African but now that we have 3 little ladies to dress between the ages of 6 weeks and 5 years it is a bit more challenging… Key factors making things hard: Limited choice – There’s an abundance of baby clothes available online and in stores but as the girls turn 3 our options seem to decline rapidly. Affordability…

Oliver & Bean turns 1 and we have some fun!

June 30, 2017

A couple of months ago I met Taryn at the Oh My Baby opening in Brooklyn Mall. We spoke briefly but it was after this chance encounter we decided to collab on a little something fun… After the birth of her 2nd son, Jack Jude last year Oliver & Bean came to be and now 1 year later we celebrate their 1st birthday with them, Tropicana tea party in Wonderland style! With an aim to “WOW” little people (and their…

Body Paint inspired Family Maternity Photoshoot

June 29, 2017

Maternity shoots are usually all about the belly, the mommy and the love between the couple that helped create this new little human. When you are blessed to experience a 2nd, 3rd or even 4th pregnancy, siblings add to the joy and while expecting our second little girl back in 2014 we knew we wanted to include big sis, Eliana in a family maternity photoshoot. Being only 2 at the time and naturally camera shy, posing wasn’t really her thing…

A Room to Share: Swan inspired Toddler Bedroom.

May 5, 2017

When Eliana and Lia asked to share a room we were more than reluctant to agree but after a brief trial period we soon realised it wasn’t just a good idea but a great gift we could give our girls. Not only would it settle the “I don’t want to sleep alone” debate but it’s a fantastic opportunity to bond and learn consideration and respect for others. So we started planning our toddler bedroom to share… 1st, we needed a…
