GIVEAWAY: Celebrate Mother’s Day with Nomination jewellery worth R5 000!

I introduced you to Nomination a couple of weeks ago over HERE. When I did so, I had no idea exactly how much I would love my own Nomination composable bracelet! And now you stand a chance to win Nomination jewellery worth R5 000! Nomination Jewellery is said to be the epitome of La Dolce Vita, inspired by Italian fashion, art and culture. Nomination is a leader in gold and stainless steel jewellery and the Italian design and the artisanal craftsmanship of this company has created a cult following the world over. The founder of Nomination, Paolo Gensini, said that he wanted to create a precious bracelet for everyone and that is exactly what he did. I absolutely adore my bracelet! I have worn it every day since I received it. I have never really been one for a charm bracelet as I get irritated with dangly charms. I do love personalised jewellery though. The Nomination Composable Bracelet is just perfect. I chose a silver bracelet with a variety of links that all have special meaning. I included a few of the brand new double links and they really are gorgeous. I love that you can create your own story with Nomination charms. And trust me, they have a charm for every occasion. There is also a bracelet and charms to suit every style. Whether you love silver, gold or rose gold; whether you like simple or over the top, you will be able to compose a bracelet that is perfectly you. A Nomination Bracelet is also the perfect Mother’s day gift. Compose your message of love for your mom and...

Cara LOVES her Penguala. And you can win a Hatchimal!

Just Fun Kidz emailed me a couple of weeks ago and asked if Cara would like to review a Hatchimal. What kind of a question is that? YES! I don’t know any little kids who wouldn’t give their left pinky for one of these adorable furballs. What is a Hatchimal you ask?? Hatchimals are magical creatures that live inside of eggs. Who’s inside? It’s a surprise! Each egg contains one of two interactive Hatchimals. Love and care for yours inside the egg and its eyes will light up as it makes cute sounds, telling you how it’s feeling! Once you’ve played with it enough, you’ll see rainbow eyes – that means its time to hatch! Hatchimals can’t hatch on their own. Your touch encourages them to peck their way out of the egg! It’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience! Now you get to raise your furry Hatchimal through 3 stages, from baby to toddler, to kid. Your Hatchimal sings “Hatchy Birthday” each time it enters a new stage! Teach yours to walk, dance, play games and more! It will even repeat what you say in its own voice! I know that Hatchimals were top of many kids’ Christmas wish lists last year, and I can’t see the hype about these little cuties dying down soon. Cara received a Penguala Hatchimal. Pengualas are happy-go-lucky, quirky, naive, friendly, clumsy and kind.  They come in either a Pink or a Teal egg. They are super cute. The hatching process is amazing. Really! We had the whole family gathered round the table whilst Cara and her cousin were helping little Pengi hatch by stroking the egg...

Go Green with Faithful to Nature AND WIN!

We are trying our best to live a more waste-free life. Faithful to Nature makes going green so easy. Here’s our Faithful to Nature ‘Go Green Wish List’. Go Green with Faithful to Nature AND WIN!   Apothocary Laundry Salts This ocean- and skin-friendly product is top of my shopping list. I hate the sound of water going down the drain and the water crisis has made me more aware of how precious every drop really is. Apothocary Laundry Salts are free of chemicals which means that the water used for washing laundry can be used to water the garden. These laundry salts will give you clean, great-smelling laundry, without no harm to your family’s health or to the planet. Dry Planet Flush Away It is quite shocking when you realise exactly how much water you flush away. We live by the ‘if it’s yellow, let it mellow’ motto in our house, but let’s be honest, you can only take it so far. That’s why I’m very keen to try Save-A-Flush. The envelope is filled with super absorbent beads which will absorb water when placed into the bottom of the toilet cistern. This will reduce the capacity of the cistern and can save up to 7000 litres annually in just one toilet! And it lasts 3-5 years. Add to cart… Kuro-Bo 100% Natural Charcoal Water Filter Totally intrigued after I read this: ‘More and more South Africans are welcoming this special water filter into their health-conscious homes. Kuro-Bo Activated Charcoal is the first and only 100% plastic-free, natural and recyclable water filter in Africa. Activated charcoal, or Binchotan, has...

Pregnancy Education Week and a GIVEAWAY

‘The Perfect Dance of Birth Hormones’ is the theme of  Pregnancy Education Week from 18 to 26 February 2017, when childbirth educators, Bio-Oil and hospitals around the country highlight how knowledge empowers expectant parents for better pregnancy, birth, bonding and breastfeeding experiences. Childbirth education is proven to have many benefits for expectant parents and the newborn child.  Pregnancy Education Week Lynne Bluff, national co-ordinator of the Childbirth Educators’ Professional Forum, explains how antenatal classes can help facilitate an understanding of the interplay of hormones before, after and during birth.  “Our hormone system prepares us in the final weeks, days and hours for an efficient labour; they help manage the pain and stress and ensure a safe birth. Hormones also give us a feeling of intense reward and pleasure as we meet our baby for the first time. For all this to happen in harmony, the birthing hormones need to work together in perfect synchronicity. At childbirth education classes, parents learn these intricate steps. The knowledge and understanding they gain helps facilitate the ‘dance’ for a better birth experience.” “Four hormones star in the show – oxytocin, endorphins, catecholamines and prolactin. Each brings its own style to the dance of labour. Oxytocin takes the lead, guiding you with love and connection, while catecholamines excite and energize you. Endorphins help you navigate through the daring twists and turns and nurturing prolactin will be there at the dazzling finish to welcome your baby.” Bluff explains several steps that expectant parents can take to best prepare for this perfect ‘dance’:  Most importantly you need confidence that you can give birth to your baby,...
