Sometimes I find products, places and things that I absolutely adore and figure if we all in this trial and error together let me tell you what worked for me. :)
I recently discovered a few things about myself after a few incidents at the office where my pants decided that they didn’t want to do their thing any longer and split. It was heartbreaking for me. Funny, but very very inconvenient. I am a mom. It defines me. Part of being a mom, means I rarely find the time or the money to shop for myself. So the pants saga was just awful. Firstly – I still haven’t bought new pants because a) the shops just don’t have a style right now that speaks to me and b) I’ve only tried to look once because who has the time.

The wind in your hair, sea sand at your feet, beautiful scenery around you. You are laughing and chatting to friends and loved ones, while small trickles of sweat gather on your forehead. Your heart is racing a little as you pedal slowly (or quickly) on your fat bike. Focusing on the road but also just taking in the ocean you love so much from a completely different perspective.
Sound like fun?
In my 14 months of motherhood, I would like to say that I have learnt a thing or two about nappies. Which brands suit our toddler the best, how to actually put a nappy on properly, and when is the right time to change nappy sizes. Or how to know what was the correct fit. Unfortunately I wasn’t completely in the loop until recently. Where we had poonami’s – (for those of you lucky enough to not know what this means the name says it all), an irritated skin (he has a very sensitive skin already eczema prone and all), and a very unhappy baby and mommy. I could not understand. I quickly changed brands and had the same results, if not worse. (more…)
Daniel has an incredibly sensitive skin. When he was just 10 weeks old he was diagnosed with eczema and ever since we have had to be really, really careful with the products we chose to use on him. I’m talking everything from nappies, clothes and obviously skin care. This often means choosing the unpopular items and sometimes the more expensive ones. When Oh so Heavenly released their new Baby Farm Fresh range for sensitive skin I was really keen to try it on Daniel’s skin. Also really nervous of course. (more…)
I don’t know about you mom’s but usually for me, buying for the husband I need to like really prepare ahead of time. Not because he’s difficult. Okay who am I kidding. He is really difficult. He’s geeky so that end’s up being really expensive you know – gaming, techno stuff is all on the other side of affordable. BUT then – *insert chimes*, Mini-me.co.za contacted me. (more…)
