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…

A tea for 2: Lia’s garden Tea party.

September 30, 2017

Last week we shared Lia’s Got Milk themed 1st birthday party. This week it’s all about turning 2!

This got us thinking… let’s put together a Tea for Two, garden style. It would be a quaint backyard garden tea party with all her little friends and being a tea-lover myself, I’ll admit, this party got me really excited!…

Being a reading family, books have come in handy more than once, assisting us in parenting better.

Weekend Fun: Flair Baby & Toddler Market

August 24, 2017

Little know fact about myself; I use to be a “mama-maker”. Back in 2012-2015 I had a little baby and toddler clothing range called Eli & I. Together with a small team of seamstresses, we work the Gauteng market scene, providing clothes for a few baby boutiques and running our own online store. It was fun, amazing and EXTREMELY hard work… That’s probably where my deep appreciation, love and support for shopping local and buying small grew. Another mama that…

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…
