When I asked Jordy what theme he wanted for his birthday he responded – “I want what Jackson is having for his party”… He has serious heart eyes for his big brother, and wants everything he wants! But Jackson wanted a small Pirate Party with his besties, complete with a treasure hunt. Jordy though, as much as he idolises his big bro-bestie, is very different to him.

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”
The Cavern Resort & Spa in the Drakensberg just gave us one of our best family holidays yet. It was a beautiful holiday for all five of us and here are 10 reasons why they get it all so right for both parents and kids:
We were sent a pair of the Snuggly Rascals headphones to review, and my goodness have I been excited to share this product with you guys! And the best news: You can WIN a pair too! Continue reading “REVIEW | Kids Headphones”
What a wonderful weekend we had! One that left the love tanks feeling full and hearts warm.
Here it is in pics:
Friday afternoon I fetched kiddies from school and the boys had Chloe come to play. We went past KFC on our way home for their favourite treat: Sprinkle Pops, and then they played all afternoon. Jackson called me over to see he had spelt out his name on the fridge, and then he worded out the letters too. So proud of this little man. He just loves learning.
It was the perfect ONEderland for our ONEderful little girl x
I will let the gorgeous pictures taken by the very talented Samantha Maber do most of the talking, but our little princess’s first birthday party was just the most special and wonderful day. She was in her element and loved all the attention – far more than either of my two boys on their 1st birthdays! I think she is going to be quite like her mama and live for celebrations 🙂
My favourite moment of the day was without doubt watching her face light up as if a million fireflies started glowing inside her soul when we all started singing Happy Birthday to her… she loved every single moment of it <3
Theme: ONEderland Venue: Brooklyn Estate Clubhouse Cake & gorgeous biscuits: Toni Seery from T and Cake Photos:Samantha Maber Photography Welcome Sign, Cake Topper & Bottle Labels: Danielle Barrie SmithThe main table decor was simple but worked out perfectly. A special friend helped me put the flower arrangement together, which was initially supposed to arch around the table, but I ran out of time to put the arch together, and also felt it actually looked prettier on the table itself. I need to add that it is also very special that I got to use my Nana’s lace table cloth on the main table. My Nana’s name is Fay, and I was named after her (Shannon Fay), just as I have named Brooklyn (Brooklyn Fay) after her too, and so very special to use this for the first time at B’s special first birthday!
I would like to start this post with a little brag.
The subject of all this bragging:
Well… I happen to know this girl… well she was a girl when I met her, but she is a lady now. A wife and a mom. But as I say, when I met her she was just a girl. Continue reading “Brag post | Bloom COLOUR RUN”
The day before schools went back a couple friends and I decided last minute to take our littles for a fun outing. We threw around a few ideas and then settled on the new “My Little Picasso” we had heard a few moms raving about at Cornubia Mall. We headed to the new-ish mall (it opened doors 28 September 2017), five kiddies to three mamas (I left Miss B home to nap). Continue reading “WIN | My Little Picasso Experience”
