{Gift idea} Personalised jewellery in South Africa <3

I love personalised things. I really do. There is nothing more special than a gift that has been considered and meticulously ordered with someone special special in mind. And no one else will ever have the same item as you.

Christmas is around the corner and if you’re stuck for a gift for your mom, grandma, husband, wife, aunt, friend, then you’re in the right place my friends. Let me tell you about exquisite Janine Binneman Jewellery. Not only is she an absolute joy to work with but she is friendly, accommodating and ridiculous creative. Her product development is on point and she has designed something for everyone. Janine can also fully customise just about anything for you.

{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.

Festive shopping made easy with Toy Kingdom. #TKFestiveWishlist

Christmas shopping is not for the faint of heart. As much as I love it, I loathe it. It’s such a beautiful and happy time of the year amidst all the chaos, I love it. The one thing that stresses me out about Christmas time is buying gifts for people people I hate giving mediocre gifts. Mediocre doesn’t mean inexpensive by the way! I get my self into a total knot about spending money on something and then wondering if the person is even going to love it. I HATE giving generic, unthoughtful or useless gifts. The absolute horror of a gift I have given being banished to the ‘regift’ drawer is a legitimate fear of mine. I also find the kids quite a challenge to buy for. I was stuff for them that isn’t going to just sit on a shelf collecting dust. I was them to have toys that they are able to explore and for the most part, learn from.

{REVIEW} My first Caterpillar with Duplo.

If you have a little person in your house or you’re on the lookout for a Christmas prezzie for your first grandchild – look no further. My First Caterpillar from Duplo is just the most gorgeous thing.

The recommended age is 1.5 – 3 years and although Micah is a bit younger – he could spend ages playing with a box of Duplo. The colours and the sounds of the blocks clanking against each other make for some great explorative and fine motor skills play.

The Deryan bed tent. For such happy campers.

img_9742

I absolutely LOVE the Deryan range of products, they are really made with kids in mind but are so incredibly practical too. We adore this particular product, the Deryan bed tent.

As glorious as summer is, it comes with pesky mozzies – something I don’t think anyone on this earth is a fan of. Mozzie nets are beautiful for a baby’s bedroom but this is just so much more fun for a toddler bedroom, don’t you agree? Jordan is obsessed.
