Twins 7th birthday party

Twins 7th birthday party

The girls had their 7th birthday party at the beginning of April. It was a pamper themed party. We invited 8 of their closest friends and cousins. All about the same age. I asked whether mom’s could drop off their kids at our home and then collect them again after the party. The mom’s seemed to be happy to drop off their kids. I thought that without parents there watching, the children would like more

Story time: I think Yameen saw a ghost

Story time: I think Yameen saw a ghost

I think Yameen saw a Ghost! Let me set the scene… It’s 1:30 am when Zahir came to bed. He watched Game of Thrones and when he got to bed, he fell asleep immediately. Just then Yameen woke up. He was moving about in bed (he sleeps with us). Moving from my side of the bed to Zahir’s. It isn’t a big space in between Zahir and I. Just enough for him for move about.

Review: the Speech Bubble Co.

Review: the Speech Bubble Co.

 *sponsored About a month ago, Zahir and I were called into Zia’s teachers office. It felt like dejavu all over again. Because the year before, also around this time, were called in by Zia’s previous teacher. The comments were the same. Zia is smart but lacks confidence. She is playful and lacks focus. She likes to roam around and goes to the toilet often. Basically she does everything she can to be out of the

My Lash Lift Experience

My Lash Lift Experience

Last May, Zahir surprised me with a mother’s day gift of note. A R500.00 gift voucher from Sorbet to use at my leisure. I normally get massages when I get vouchers but this time I decided to have a lash lift done. I’m not brave enough to try lash extensions. I kind of feel like it wont suit me. Anyway, I’m going off track. I’m not into change, or drastic changes so I thought a

Yameen's 1st Birthday Party & 6 tips for planning a kids party on a budget

Yes, the title is correct and this year has flown by so fast. Yameen’s first birthday was on the 26 September, the same day as our 9th year wedding anniversary. We sang for him and hugged him tight but the party was set up for the Saturday after. It was such a fun day all around. We invited a handful of family and friends to celebrate this short amazing life of my youngest child. He is
