Tastic’s My Hertiage Event

Tastic’s My Hertiage Event

My Heritage, something I needed to think about constantly leading up to this event. How would I represent my heritage. I’m coloured which means koesisters on Sunday, tweede neuwe jaar, koons, hair that minces in the rain and a new outfit for Christmas. I’ve seen coloured people share food and protect what’s theirs with the fiercest conviction. It’s gatsby’s on bonnets and dropped suspension on cars. This might not be how you have experienced it but every single thing mentioned has warm fuzzy memories etched into who I am now…

Lets talk sleep!

Lets talk sleep!

One of the biggest lessons I’ve learnt from being a mom is how important sleep is. On days when I don’t get enough sleep I turn into the wicked witch of the East. We all know how that story ended for her. She got buried, under a house, which is exactly how I feel on days when sleep is a distant memory

Body Mapping Workshop

Body Mapping Workshop

“A person’s body map is their perception, understanding and experience of their own body-shape and size, plus how and where their own joints move and how their body functions. “ Recently I decided that in order for me to grow as an individual, mom and women I need to invest in myself. I have been doing this by surrounding myself with people that speak life, reading encouraging articles and stories and only saying yes to the things that truly make me happy. One of the best…

Bosch cooking experience

Bosch cooking experience

If there is one thing you need to know about me it’s that the way to my heart is through my stomach. I love good food. I love how it is not only delicious and enjoyable but I love how it brings people together, sparks joy and laughter and how food literally has the ability to switch me from an angered ogre to a pouncing princess in 2 seconds flat. Hangry is a thing people. Naturally the invitation to attend…

Bedwetting

Bedwetting

Over the past few days I’ve asked around if my friends and colleagues kids wet the bed. There seems to be a huge stigma around it. I felt the sense that parents felt guilty that their kids wet the bed. One person questioned if something is happening in their child’s life that may be causing this. The truth is that bedwetting is something your child might go through and that’s ok, you have not failed as a parent. 10% of…

LolliPutti Launch Event

LolliPutti Launch Event

Jayme couldn’t contain his excitement for his event. I was smart about it and used it as a reward for extra hard work at school the week leading up to the event, it worked like a charm. Bonus is that it was assessment week so it was the perfect incentive to get him to put in some extra hours. The launch was held at Toys R Us in Canal walk and as I walked towards the store I saw two…
