#shoplocal : Our Fashion favourites for A/W 2018

June 5, 2018
KIds winter Fashion

Supporting local and buying proudly South African is a choice we made a few years ago, around the time our eldest Eliana was born. Little by little we made changes, buying more consciously and building a home (and especially a closet) filled with items made by our fellow countrymen. Step one was shopping small, have a look at “The Ultimate list of proudly South African Clothing Brands for Kids” in a post from a few weeks ago. Step two has…

#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…

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…

August 20, 2017

You may have noticed photos are kinda our thing… I have a phone full of kiddy snap shots, endless memory cards I still have to download and stacks of albums but it’s not just photos, we LOVE good photography too and make it a priority to let the pro’s do their thing when it matters most. That’s exactly why we got Conrad Hero Photography to take some precious newborn photos of our little baby Ava. Only 1 week old at the time…
