Hierdie jaar het ons ‘n punt daarvan gemaak om meer as ooit te lees. Die voordeel wat voorlees inhou is duidelik sigbaar nou dat ons oudste graad een is. Nie net vir akademiese gewin nie, maar ook om ons kinders voorteberei vir verskeie lewenssituasies wat op hulle wag. Juis daarom deel ons graag hierdie passie met almal en sien ons elke maand daarna uit om ons leeslys te deel. Top Afrikaanse Kinderboeke om te geniet saam met jou kind, nou…

Getting Summer ready: Laser Hair Removal with Laser Beautique

Laser Hair Removal With Laser Beautique

About 11years ago I was a blushing bride-to-be, eagerly getting pruned and pampered for our big day. I remember reading about laser hair removal, instantly intrigued. Shaving my underarm is the pits! And not just literally… I always itch, I always have little bumps and it kind of burns after I shave. Waxing doesn’t work well either… So I had a go at laser and got burnt badly! I had no plans of ever even doing any kind of hair…

Nurture Skin Nurturing Young Skin Naturally

Girls will be girls and one thing our girls enjoy is a little pampering! A bit of lip gloss, painting each other’s nails and lathering on some lotion.

And now, thanks to Nurture Skin, these habits can be practiced and established with the help of their natural skincare for kids! Nurture Skin wants to ensure that what we put on our children’s skin both protects…

Petite Fox 7801

Finally South Africa has caught on to the latest trend… Sustainable fashion for kids! This isn’t just a cool, new fab supported by celebs like Stella McCartney, Sarah Jessica Parker and Emma Watson, but actually important for the future of our planet. The fast fashion phenomena is leading to millions of tons of clothing ending up in landfills, all over the world, year after year. We only realised the impact and the terrible culture of consumerism we have been “buying”…

Our-Generation-Dolls-Review

There’s never been a generation of girls quite like us. We’re following family traditions while creating some really cool ones of our own. Like teaching our younger cousins to recycle and collect dresses for girls who would otherwise gone without. We play hopscotch and jump rope and jacks until we’re out of breath from laughing and just can’t hop, jump or jack one more time. We’re dreamers and doers. And we are here to do it all. What comes next…

Best-laundry-dryer-for-a-family

When I’m not putting in a load… I’m waiting for the washing to dry, so that I can find a spot of sun on the line. Add cloth diapers, a toddler fashionista with at least 3 outfit changes a day and a Grade 1 that is always running low on clean school clothes and I’m telling you, laundry day seems to NEVER end! So, of course I could not turn down the opportunity to test and the review the Spindel…
