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.

Established in 1978 (MY mama could’ve been a client), this quaint boutique opened its doors as Sandton City was introduced to the…

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…

Safe Co-Sleeping with Nordic Nuss

September 13, 2017

To co-sleep or not to co-sleep? With so much info out there it can be difficult figuring out something as simple as where your precious newborn babe will be sleeping those 1st few weeks /months. Add the fear of SIDS and it’s enough to awaken paranoia in the calmest of mamas. I’ll admit, I was so scared we (and especially Mr. perfect) would hurt Eliana in our sleep. Rolling over her, suffocating her, forgetting she was there… we decided to…

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”.

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…
