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…

The launch was held at Toys R Us in Canal walk and as I walked towards the store I saw two…

Fair Cape Dairies Farm Experience

Fair Cape Dairies Farm Experience

Fair Cape invited a few bloggers to experience how they are effectively running their farm with solar energy during day time hours. I loved driving to the farm, there’s something about driving up a dirt road with the the barn almost rising in front of you that makes one feel part of an almost cinematic experience. The farm is situated in Cape Farms, just outside of Durbanville. It is a fresh, tranquil space. We spent the first few minutes socializing…

Moooka Hands-Free Silicone Breast Pump

When preparing for a new baby one of the biggest concerns for any mom is how they will feed their new little baby. Breastfeeding comes naturally to some and not so naturally to others. We struggle with so many issues and sometimes it is easier to give your baby milk in a bottle.

Purity & Elizabeth Anne’s Special Baby Shampoo Review

Purity & Elizabeth Anne’s Special Baby Shampoo Review

Purity & Elizabeth Anne is a household name for us and many other people I know. We first used the range 7 years ago when Jayme was a baby, we were gifted many of the products for my baby shower. When Alex was born we used the baby petroleum jelly from Purity & Elizabeth Anne because the smell and feel of it was the best out of all of the ones we tried. We never had any issues with nappy…
