The Blog Got A Make-Over + WIN A Kids Party To The Value Of R2500 To Celebrate!

So I am not sure if you have noticed – but the blog got a major make-over! Not only does it look fan-bloody-tastic, it is also now more user friendly.


The lovely Andrea from Clever Bird Banter is the mastermind behind all of this, she took my vision and made it better than I ever thought possible. She even included one of my own fashion illustrations in the header, which I thought was a lovely personal touch. Andrea was such a joy to work with – she just got it. Thank you Andrea ♥


What to expect from the blog this year…

To be honest, not much will change… I am just really going to try and post more often. I really enjoy writing, but I have just been down-right lazy. The new look has definitely inspired me – now to find the time! What do you want to see more of on the blog? I would love to hear your thoughts!


Let’s celebrate!


To celebrate, I thought I would offer a prize that would help you with one of the most stressful things when it comes to kids (well, for me at least) – birthday parties.
