Justin and I went on a date night last night for the first time in what felt like forever. Life has just been really busy and to be honest we have been really bad at putting aside time for each other. Having spent an evening together, sitting opposite one another in a romantically-lit setting, with someone waiting on us (rather than us waiting on 3 kids), and enjoying a delicious meal together was so great for us last night and just what we needed!
Here is why I think making time for “Date Night” is so important:

There is no denying that life as we know it today is intense. We have heard it from our grans over a hundred times; we are too busy, there is too much pressure on us, and we need to slow down. We can’t though, can we? We can’t be the only ones going slow, while everything around us spins faster and more out of control! We have to try keep up or we are sure to be left behind. At least that is how I feel. If I take my foot off the gas there is no way I will catch up. It is pretty crazy that this is just life as we know it now. Continue reading “The Myth of ‘Supermom’”
Having kids is a challenge that no one can ever be fully prepared for. Having three kids, well, let’s just say it is “full-on”. Thankfully, though, along the way I have built a little bank of MOM HACKS that help me through most days, and I thought I would start with my number 1 Mom Hack: Wet wipes errrrrwhere!

After cramming in some work that morning (while the boys and Miss B played so beautifully in the playroom next to my office), the boys and I dropped little sis with my Mom in law and headed through to Durban. The plan was initially to meet dad for lunch somewhere first, but work delayed me more than I expected and so it was McDees on the road for the boys and I. We had a very important date at the Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre, a date with the BFG!! Continue reading “Weekend in Pics | 29 June – 1 July”
Taking a walk down memory lane always brings up all of the feels, doesn’t it? Sometimes those memories flood back in the most unlikely of places, triggered by something which could be completely insignificant to the person who passed by it before you, but to you it holds a bucket-full of memories…

Starting with the most important: Skin care. Because it doesn’t matter what you put on your face to pretty it up, if the base coat (your skin) is not clear and glowing, well then nothing will look all that good, will it?! Continue reading “Flavour of the month | Beauty. Skin. Hair”
I was asked to be part of the #AvonAnew30DayChallenge and trial the revolutionary new product from Avon: Anew Infinite Effects Night Treatment Cream. This could not have come at a better time as just before I got the mail I was hounding my hubby to please allow me to invest in some skin care that actually helped me with anti-aging, as after a stressful build, move and sick kiddies, I was feeling old and haggard, and my skin was looking worse than ever before.
You can even see how depressed I am in the below no-make-up-selfie: Continue reading “Avon Anew Reversalist Night Cream | Review”
