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...

Woolworths Moms Tours

There is nothing more important to a parent than the health and happiness of their children. We all do our utmost to ensure that our kids follow a healthy and balanced diet, but more often than not it is not quite as easy as it sounds. Time may not be your side and fast food is just an easier option, you may have picky eaters or a child who suffers from food allergies, or you may have just run out of ideas. Woolworths Moms Tours to the rescue. These tours are guided by a registered dietician and aim to educate parents (and in turn their kids) about nutrition, healthy eating habits and better food options. I attended a Moms Tour at Woolworths Tyger Valley last week and the subject was Healthy Lunch Box Options. We had a tour through the food store, learnt more about the different food groups, their nutritional value and importance, the difference between snacks and treats and we also had the chance to sample some eats and drinks that are perfect for our kids’ lunch boxes. I am sure we all walked away with a lot of new lunch ideas. My poor baby girl has food allergies. Sigh. I pray that she grows out of it, but for now she has to stick to a dairy, egg and peanut free diet. I have become a pro at food label reading over the past couple of years, let me tell you. It has become increasingly difficult to get her to try new foods as we have stuck to what she knows for such a long time....

Brand Focus: Human+Kind

While paging through a Clicks Beauty catalogue recently I spotted a brand I don’t know… Human+Kind. I’m generally not fazed by packaging, but I instantly fell in love with Human+Kind’s vibrant and beautiful tubes and boxes. Have a look: ‘Human+Kind is a breakthrough in skin care which will change your life as much as it will change your skin. Created for women everywhere who are tired of wasting time and money on unnecessary products, Human+Kind is a new ethos in skincare for today’s time pressed woman – simple, superior natural and dependable beauty products that multi-task as much as they do.
