Moms List – The social market for moms

One thing that I was very excited about when I fell pregnant, was all the baby shopping. And everything had to be brand-spanking-new-out-the-box. You know what… a lot of the stuff stayed in the box. Many purchases, in the end, turned out to be unnecessary and spending a fortune on new stuff that would only be used for a limited time, resulted in money not so well spent. If only I knew. Pre-loved baby goods is big business. Why? Because kids are expensive. Full stop. Why buy new when you can buy pre-loved? I introduce Moms List – the social market for moms. And you can have it at your finger tips. You can visit Moms List on the web or download the GooglePlay or iOS Apps. What I love most about Moms List is that it’s not just a place to buy and sell secondhand baby goods, it’s a social platform where you can connect with other moms and businesses too. Here is how it works: Search: If you are looking to buy something all you do is choose from a range of categories and services and filter by price, proximity, highest rated product or even new or pre-loved and within seconds your find comes up. Buying: Currently the system puts a buyer in touch with a Mom or Business Seller through the platform without giving private details away. But we are excited to be rolling out a Pay & Deliver system soon which takes away the hassle of having to meet someone face to face and gives you the convenience of at home delivery. Sell: In three easy steps via...

Tangle Teezer… worthy of its cult status?

Short answer: Yes. Stick around and I’ll tell you why I think so. A Tangle Teezer was on my birthday wish list and the amazing girls of Freebees PR & Marketing surprised me with one. Birthday made! Thank you again. I have always been curious to know if the Tangle Teezer is truly worth the hype. I have those cheap ‘knock-offs’ and I couldn’t help but wonder if there really was such a big difference between these detanglers and the Tangle Teezer. If you’ve ever wondered the same thing, let me tell you now: there is no comparison! We received a Tangle Teezer Compact. How gorgeous is this design? When I say ‘we’, I mean Cara and myself. All the hair care goodies I try, are used on these curls as well… I try very hard to care for my little girl’s locks as best I can. I want her to one day love her curls as much as I do. Firstly, let me tell you how and when detangling of our curly mops happen… combs touch our hair only on wash days and when loads of conditioner covers every strand. I wash my hair every day and honestly I don’t really struggle to detangle my hair. During summer, Cara’s hair is also washed every day (sweat, playschool sand, etc) and even then, detangling is a chore. When we can skip a day or two between washes (which I prefer) you can only imagine how hard it is. Cara also sleeps on her back and the matted mess on the back of her head some mornings is quite a...

Valentine’s Day shopping made easy with Woolworths Online

My sister admitted to me this morning that she may be addicted to online shopping. I think we share this sentiment. Why would you waste fuel driving to a busy shopping centre, get all hot and bothered searching for parking and then stand in endless queues when shopping has become so easy? Who has the time and energy for that? I am a mom and I work full time and I am most definitely not the type of person who likes to wander a shopping mall. To be honest, I hate it. Luckily I don’t have to put myself through that very often anymore as I can sit in the comfort of my home (or office… sorry boss!), browse the vast variety that most online stores have to offer these days, and then have my purchases delivered to my door. Woolworths makes this task even easier as they have such an amazing variety offered on their online store. Valentine’s Day is coming up and the husband and I are taking full advantage (he just doesn’t know it yet). We haven’t been on a date night in months and I decided that this one should be extra special. Why not? I also decided that it’s the perfect opportunity to get dressed up. Problem? I have nothing to wear. Solution: Woolworths. Woolworths has such a stunning assortment of dresses online that I am really struggling to choose. I have decided to go for a little black dress, but I’m still struggling. I’ve narrowed it down and now have the difficult task of choosing one of these 5 stunners: Now what about...
