A natural local choice for baby skincare feat. Bubiroo {Review}

Eczema is like a swear-word in our house. It has given me absolute endless anxiety since Daniel picked it up at 10 weeks. We have been to the pediatrician, got all the recommended soaps and tried various baby ranges. Some of which worked, if only for a short while, but when winter popped it’s ugly scaly head Daniel started with eczema around his eyes and face area. It looked sore, irritated and flaky. Most of all my poor babies face was a constant reminder that although we had tons of medications, this is something we are living with daily.

Sorry… Not sorry! Some alternatives so you can be #notsorry!

I am generally a nervous person, nervous anxious whatever you want to call it. Many people do however think I am not this. They’ll meet me and because I have the loudest laugh in the room, automatically I couldn’t be shy, nervous or anxious. So nervous that my favourite word, or rather the word I use the most in my vocabulary is… “Sorry”. Can you relate? I’m sorry even when I haven’t made a mistake or done anything wrong. Just sorry, I don’t even know why.

Daddy Long Legs {Children’s Book Review}

This is in fact not a book about spiders, gogo’s or any creepy crawly’s as the title would have you think. Daddy Long Legs is actually a beautiful book about a daddy’s relationship with his child.

How many of you have sang the song, “Clap handies, clap handies for Daddy to come”? When Ian has had to travel in the past although I’ve never sang the song, I’ve found myself pining. Dads, the heroes of so many children’s hearts are often the ones who are traveling, and spending more time away from home. While the parent left behind nurtures and give reassurance of Daddy’s return. This book is that reassurance in a way that warms all the mushies in your heart.

Black Panther bares all on DVD and Blu-Ray {+ WIN!}

Black Panther was one of those movies that if you weren’t planning to see it, after a day or so of it’s release, you had a sudden change of heart! Our household (and by this I mean my husband) are HUGE Marvel fans. I’ve mentioned previously, he is just one of those guys who finds comfort in the geekier things in life. It’s one of the things I enjoy most about him! I’ve learnt so much about the Marvel Universe and once you do, you can’t help but want to know it all!

12 years a mom – here’s what I’ve learnt

Motherhood is something that if I’m honest, I was never prepared for. None of us are though, right? You see though, I wasn’t the type of girl who imagined playing dolls with my child one day. I didn’t want the responsibilities and I didn’t yearn for the title. Perhaps that is why God took it upon himself to intervene and I fell pregnant at 19. Well God, and my own recklessness. At the time, I didn’t think it was best for me and my plans. Hindsight, however, is twenty-twenty and I have learnt so much. It was and is best, the best!
