Find what you are *actually* looking for on Spree.co.za #SpreeVisualSearch

Technology seriously blows my mind. Now I don’t go to the mall much because, well, kids and all that. You know. I tend to do most of my clothing shopping, quite successfully, online. I know my size and I have never really had much of an issue when it comes to things fitting. Of course there are certain things I don’t buy online, like jeans, because fit is a serious make or break when it comes to jeans unless you buy a specific brand and you already know your size.

Life in the Smal household.

It’s been a few weeks since I posted on here and truth be told, I am totally okay with that. I went out for drinks with some people after work on Friday (I KNOW.. living LARGE) and we got onto the topic of blogging. You will know that I have always been very true to my belief that this blog is a hobby, something to be enjoyed and not something I have ever wanted to be a slave to. It is not a business, although of course I do sponsored content here and there with brands that I truly believe in and love, I consider that both a perk and a privilege. The point I am trying to make is that I have never wanted to feel life a slave to my own blog. I never want to feel guilty for my lack of communication on here and I live true to that. I don’t post for the sake of being current and I don’t post when I don’t feel like I have something valuable to add. Thank you to all you loyal folk who continue to visit and pop in on the regular. We dig you!

{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.
