{Superbalist} Keeping your feet warm this winter.

Winter is coming and I couldn’t be more excited. I love summer but I am definitely a winter person. I have always said that I could quite easily reside in London and not look back. Grey skies make me happy because they are so easily accompanied with fires in the evening, hot soup, early morning cuddles in bed, sleepovers in the lounge with the kids, big scarves and layers, beautiful winter boots and red wine. Let’s not forget the red wine.

An Easter treasure hunt with Cotton on Kids.

When Cotton on Kids approached us to do an Easter styled post, we just couldn’t say no. We absolutely ADORE Cotton On Kids, their clothes have so much personality.. and I think that is the perfect use of word. It’s the way in which each clothing item is considered from a childs perspective in terms of practicality, comfort and FUN. From little graphic quirky prints, draw strings and fabric chose for comfort, to sweaters with bat wings to encourage role play, hoodies with ears, eyes and sharp tiger teeth, bunny bandit tops with super hero capes attached – Cotton on Kids clothing promotes role play and adventure!

{WIN} A Paw Patrol Jungle Rescue hamper worth R2,500.

Paw Patrol has been a firm favourite in our household since Jordan first laid eyes on those cute pups. I mean, the kid honestly believes some days that he IS Ryder. I, apparently, am Skye and Banjoe of course, being a bulldog and all is our very own Rubble. Jordan sometimes makes him wear a yellow hard hat so that he really looks the part but it never lasts very long. Jordan is HUGE into role playing and it’s just the sweetest thing.

{REVIEW} KURO-Bō – an Eco-Friendly 100% natural way to filter water.

There has been much speculation about the quality of the water in Cape Town given that our dams are at an all time low. The quality of the water is in question and I am not sure wether or not that is a fact, but one can’t be too careful.

We have been drinking purified water for years in our household. Of course we have the odd glass of tap water here and there but filtered fridge water is definitely our preference.. as Jordy calls it “ice water”. Nic is convinced that there are health benefits to drinking ice cold water – probably a load of nonsense but he swears that it has health benefits.

Surviving our first year as parents of two – a little bit of honesty.

I wake up every morning desperately hoping that today will be the day that I finally have some time to sit down (in peace) and write a blog post. But life. It’s hectic to say that absolute least. Perhaps relentless is a better word. Don’t read on if you aren’t willing to hear some brutal honesty and perhaps a bit of whinging. I am never been so busy and a shift in priorities also has something to do with my scarceness around here. Not that I don’t adore sharing and writing, I’m just not going to exhaust myself trying to make sure that I write a certain quota every month. I write because I WANT to, I write when I have the time and not because I feel guilty or pressured to do so. Sure, I do feel a sense of urgency and guilt when I haven’t put a post out in a while but at the same time, I have a life and a family to take care of and they most certainly come first. Every little moment of peace needs to be cherished because they come very scarcely around here. While we’re here, I want to thank YOU, my very loyal readers and followers for allowing me to have this approach. You guys are amazing because you’re there and you’re interested when I do put something out for you to read, you encourage me and support me in my quiet moments and I cannot thank you enough for this.
