Is my Tommee Tippee sippy cup safe?

When it comes to social media, it takes me a while to believe the hype about some things. Like, for instance, did they really find a mermaid off the coast of Spain? Like, for real? And these baltic amber beads – what witchcraft is this?! Show me proof! I want to see for myself! So when I started hearing stories that Curlys beloved Tommee Tippee sippy cup is no longer safe to use, I had to investigate! I breastfed my girl for as long as I could and found the Tommee Tippee Closer To Nature bottles to be top notch, as she switched from boob to bottle. I mean, you can’t go wrong with Tommee Tippees!

Video: That tomb is still empty!

It’s Easter Monday and guess what, That tomb is still empty! Today I don’t have the words, so I thought I would share a Youtube video posted by adoptive father, Joel Mullen. This family has really touched my heart and I am once again reminded of God’s love and ability to restore the broken. Oh and Levi and Lia are super adorable and really clever too! Enjoy the vid – make sure you watch until the end to hear Lia’s beautiful singing voice. 🙂

A blessed Easter to you and yours!

But, funny enough, I didn’t do the same ol’ big celebration thing (as I normally do) because that would mean that I’m still the same inside, but I feel different. Very different. I don’t know about all you other 30-somethings, but I could feel the change in season the year that I turned 30 years old. (Which was not this year, btw) (more…)

Creative journaling with the Inspire Bible {Review}

Bible 7I love Easter time. I love that we get to celebrate the life of Jesus and how this period acknowledges his life and death to be real and not some fictitious story, made up and put into a book. There are so many cool ways you could celebrate this time with your kideos. I’ve recently spent some time celebrating with my Inspire Bible but I know many people opt for Easter egg hunts and chocolate parties (and hey, I love chocolate yo!). This is one of those times where I can’t wait for my girl to be a bit older so that I could explore the other ways of celebrating the cross. (more…)

#ecmeetup topics: the importance of social media

Social Media

So as the 14th of May draws closer (yes, I am aware that it’s still March) Elle and I excitedly prep for our very first (and soon to be annual) Eastern Cape bloggers get together. The #ecmeetup has all kinds of wonderful things awaiting us such as the droolworthy brag bags and really awsome special giveaways (That I’m not allowed to win. Suddenly this job has lost it’s spark) thanks to our amazing sponsors. The #ecmeetup topics are also a great drawcard and we can’t wait to learn. (more…)
