Where is everyone going? Most popular destinations for South Africans!

When I was a little girl, Sunday’s were my favourite days! It meant that my dad took our family for a drive along the marine, we would get ice cream and then we would go park at the airport and watch as the planes flew off into the clouds. My dad would play all our favourite tracks, and as we watched, my sister and I would make up stories about who was on each flight and where they were going and why. Our most popular destinations, of course, were of our favourite places, for the craziest reasons!

My son is 2 and we are still co-sleeping! Here is why!

Co-sleeping has received A LOT of flack of the years, and although I was very aware of the dangers we opted for it for 98% of his first two years. The 2% of time we didn’t, we had a Moses crib next to the bed in which he slept, and to my dismay a few nights when we were trying to get him to sleep in his own room. Around 18 months, I decided that Daniel had to soon become more independent, this bed sleeping was getting a bit much. I hadn’t slept next to my husband in 18months. The struggle was real!

Ottoline and the Purple Fox {Children’s Book Review}

The holidays proved to not be the perfect time for Emilie to read, as much as she enjoys escaping into another world, she needs a little coaxing. Gasp! I know, as much as I constantly push the culture of book-lovers in our home, and we are positively excited about new releases and the absolute privileged to see them before they are on the shelves. Getting a preteen to read can be challenging, especially when the world has so many other stimulants that are easier to engross into. “Ottoline and the Purple Fox” was the perfect easy read for Emilie to use to get back into things during the holidays.

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.
