Product review : Muppie Lounge

A week ago I received the cutest package of Muppie Lounge goodies for me to review.

She is a mum to four little kids and has somehow also managed… Continue reading Product review : Muppie Lounge

I’m totes trending!!!

I have not been trendy at any point in my life. I'm pretty sure I thought I was once. ..but I was wrong. HOWEVER, I now have documented proof to show my girls (when they are teenagers and I'm the height of uncool), that there was a point in time when I was officially trending. … Continue reading I’m totes trending!!!

Mompreneur #6 : Cheryl Barnett

The morning that I met Cheryl was rough. I had been up since 5am with my little one who had woken twice that night for feeds she didn't need and I was exhausted. Ten minutes after chatting to Cheryl, I felt awake, invigorated and excited about life. She is the human version of a glass… Continue reading Mompreneur #6 : Cheryl Barnett

Finding my Mumtribe

I have always been a bit of a loner. If given a choice I would much rather be at home than do something social. I have a few very close friends that have been around for almost half my life and I have been quite content. Since having kids though, I feel as if I'm… Continue reading Finding my Mumtribe

Mompreneur #5 : Victoria (Tory) Sutherland-Dadds

Some people never do. Tory is one of the lucky few who found her talent early on and has turned… Continue reading Mompreneur #5 : Victoria (Tory) Sutherland-Dadds

Mompreneur #4 : Issa Blanco

Issa is so well travelled and educated that I was actually quite intimidated by interviewing her. She has a degree in Journalism and two Masters degrees in Marketing and Public Relations respectively. Even with those accomplishments she is so down to earth and easy to talk to which makes sense since she is also a… Continue reading Mompreneur #4 : Issa Blanco

The multiple personalities of Motherhood 

Let me preface this by saying that this post is meant to be lighthearted and does not in any way take away from the seriousness of actual mental illness. ***** I didn't realise that this was even a thing until recently. My daughter chewed off the top of her brand new water bottle because, kids.… Continue reading The multiple personalities of Motherhood

Mompreneur #3 : Debbie Lee Cheetham

She managed the account for one of the biggest retailers in SA and like many mums (myself included) she… Continue reading Mompreneur #3 : Debbie Lee Cheetham

Does anyone have a time machine I could borrow?

I have had the shittiest five days. Actually, make that ten days. Let me explain.  Our 'family-time week' was taken over by grocery shopping, blog interviews, school drop offs and pick ups, hellish traffic in Fourways (wtf!!a 10 min drive took an hour!!) and car shopping every damn day. Poor J went from dealership to… Continue reading Does anyone have a time machine I could borrow?
