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. Remember the most amazing Star Wars party ever in the world? Well, of course you do. It was planned and executed by the amazing team from Pretty Different Events – and I am giving you a chance to WIN a birthday party for your little one from them!

    My phoebe turns 2 years old in March 2016. WE NEVER HAD A FIRST BIRTHDAY FOR HER, ONLY BOUGHT CAKE BECAUSE i was unemployed and my hubby was a sole breadwinner on a small salary. nonetheless we are so grateful to b raising this miracle child given to us, our joy!

    i would love to read more about the daily challenges that parents face – i.e many parents cannot even give their little ones food to carry to school etc. they are part of our societies but we dont see them, maybe BECAUSE we are o ENTANGLED in our own needs and wants.
