Few things can ruin a much-needed family holiday, but the anxiety over travelling with kids can put a damper on things. Luckily, I have a few tried and tested ways of keeping kids distracted while travelling, just in time for the festive season! 1. PLAN AHEAD...

Throughout this year, I have had the pleasure of promoting and working with Hasbro, who offer an incredible range of toys and games suitable for all ages. With toys that include My Little Pony, Play-Doh, Transformers and Nerf, and games like Monopoly Mzansi, Fantastic Gymnastics...

#Sponsored Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but I often skip it altogether because I get so caught up checking and replying to emails and before I know it, it’s lunchtime. Oops. So, I am making a conscious effort to start my day...

I hardly ever cook – it’s not that I dislike cooking, I actually really enjoy it, but juggling three jobs, a 5-month old and a toddler, often means that my husband is left to cook us dinner. I am sure that most moms find themselves...

Our family is fiercely passionate about the art of having fun which is often accompanied by a Nerf blaster, so when I was recently sent our (yes, I said OUR!) latest Nerf, my kid just about lost his mind (and we all fought over whose...

Just over a year ago, I started working on The Mom’s Guide – I remember being sick in bed with a bad case of morning sickness that was only worsened by the heat of summer. I worked tirelessly through December, perfecting the concept and sending...

I often get emails and DMs asking me for some tips and asking where we shop to stay on budget, so thought that I might start covering it on the blog. I am by no means the savviest shopper – I splurge on all sorts...

Following the success of my last online shopping guide, I thought that I’d write a piece featuring some of my favourite local online shops that sell clothing that is breastfeeding-friendly. With a new baby and toddler in tow, it is even more unlikely that you’ll...

Buying a car seat is the first step in ensuring your child’s safety, but just having one isn’t enough. It’s important to also know exactly how to use it and what mistakes you should be avoiding. Even though Axl is almost 4 years old, I...

So, a couple weeks ago, I saw a poster for the DinosAlive exhibition, that is making its way to Port Elizabeth. Being a dino-loving family, I was dead set on taking my boys, so you best know that when the organizers contacted me to attend...

For new moms, the decision of which brand to use on their babies shouldn’t be that difficult, but truth is, it is! There are so many brands that litter our shelves each promising to be the best choice for your baby’s skin and while I...

I am always astounded by the amount of mom-shaming that takes place on the internet. When did it become okay to type mean comments, calling a mom incompetent over something as trivial as going out on a date soon after having a baby, or saying...

A few weeks ago, I mentioned that I’d be comparing different babywearing options so that new and expecting moms could choose one that they would feel most comfortable with. Just as I had thought up the idea to do a comparison series, Pod Baby Carriers...

A couple of days ago, I had noticed that Eli had started drooling quite a bit but didn’t think anything of it until he grabbed my hand and tried to gnaw my fingers off. Yep, my baby who is about to turn 3 months old...

#Sponsored I can’t believe that tomorrow, Eli already turns 3 months old. It’s been a bit of an adjustment since welcoming our tot; I went back to work when he was only 3 weeks old, we started our own business, I started doing more content writing,...
