Life with Three kids

The other day I was approached by one of my readers and she asked me how I manage three kids and if I had any advice for her because she was expecting her second child and she was feeling a little nervous about managing two kids at the same time and on her own. I was so happy that she asked me for advice and I thought maybe just maybe there are some of you

The Girl’s Concert and Graduation Ceremony 

The Girl’s Concert and Graduation Ceremony 

Last Sunday the girls had their annual school concert and graduation at Vera Hall in Rondebosch East. All parents had to host a high tea. I really like setting up the table and decorating it but it’s rather stressful and puts a dent in your pocket.

Zia's Eczema Story

But no more, this

Home Decor: Fair and Square Art

Home Decor: Fair and Square Art

*Sponsored I had the pleasure of meeting Ashleigh when she dropped off the painting and what a nice young lady she is and the amazing thing about her paintings are that she paints them herself. I would imagine it can’t be easy to do and you really have to have some talent to paint. I mean no one can just pick up a paint brush and create art, noooo I highly doubt that. So the
