Going tutu with KidCoCo {Giveaway!}


My girl goes tootoos for tutus! Seriously. It’s the first thing she grabs when she wakes up each morning. Her special collection is lovingly referred to as her “pwincess skirts” and guys, even if the hair aint brushed and the face aint washed, when she wears her tutu she believes that she IS a princess. So can you imagine the excitement when Salma of KidCoCo sent over a special package just for her? KidCoCo is one of my fave local kiddies boutiques and as a semi-pro at tutu buying, I would just like to officially state that the new KidCoCo tutu skirts are of the highest caliber, as far as tutu skirts go.

Alove Creations turned my kid into a superstar!

alove creationsI’m not saying I have a favorite child but baby Jo definitely has the best cheeks of the lot. So it just made sense when Alethea of Alove Creations picked him to be one of the clothing labels baby brand ambassadors! Those superstar cheeks won her over, I’m convinced. You might remember me raving about Alove Creations last year, when I gave away one of her fab summer kimonos. Ladies, guess what, she has recently extended her baby wear collection and it is stunning! Attending a baby shower soon? Well then, you must check out what she has to offer. (Plus there might be a giveaway at the end of this post… who’s to say..,)
The Blessed&Favored collection has a range of baby and kiddie accessories that are totally rad! My absolute fave are these snood and head band/beanie sets. Jonah and Ava did such a good job modelling these, don’t you think?

I loved the look so much that I had to get a matching set for Kari and I. All the Alove Creations snoods and head gear is made with a chunky knit fabric and I love that the snoods are extra length. Aint nobody got time for short snoods, yo!

I am also a big fan of these ultra trendy swaddle sets. The set consists of a swaddle blankey and matching head gear. I’ve actually been using the swaddle blankey as a breastfeed cover as well. It’s light weight and easy to wrap your baby in, plus it makes you feel like a fabulous Beverley Hills mom. I mean, winning already, right?

I’ve never really been a fan of the swaddling concept until I saw how soundly it made my baby sleep. Little ones feel safe and secure, when swaddled.

If you’re looking for a legit breastfeed cover though, the Alove Creations 4-in-1 breastfeeding infinity cover is the one that you want! (Ooh Ooh Ooh honey!)

So this breastfeed cover is a (yep, you guessed it) discreet nursing cover, trendy pram cover, clever car seat cover and you can wear it as a top! Actually, I don’t know if the last one is a thing but I’ve totally been wearing the black one as a top. Yes, I’m that person. But also, it’s that versatile! Check it out, This is the perfect baby shower gift!

There are a bunch of other cool baby accessories in her collection such as wooden teethers and trendy pacifier clips. These are hand made and come in a range of amazing colors. Very, very cool.

Bonus feature: Your tiny tots fingers will have a ball of time exploring the grooves of these wooden beads.

But hey, don’t take my word for it! I want to give a wooden beads teether/pacifier clip away to one of you amazing readers.

Schnooky Pie Girls Summer 17: Pretty and Practical!

Schnooky Pie Girls Summer 17I love that my only daughter is the girliest girl in all the land! She’s like, a proper girly girl. She wears my high heels and jewelry around the house and asks for lipstick and make up. I mean, who chooses to wear heels, at home, for fun?! This girl does. She was especially overjoyed the other day when we opened a beautiful parcel from Jaclyn of Schnooky Pie. The bow bedecked box gave us a sneak peak of the proudly South African clothing brand’s new Girls Summer 17 range. If you guys remember, Kari has modeled for Schnooky Pie before. You can read more about Jaclyn’s amazing story on this post I did over at SA Mom Blogs. (more…)

Win tickets to the Clicks Baby Bootcamp!

Clicks Baby BootcampYo, PE Moms! I come with glad tidings of great joy: The Clicks Baby Bootcamp is coming to a town near you!

Be honest, do you sometimes feel out of your element when it comes to making decisions wrt baby’s health and wellness? Well, I do. I must admit, I was under the impression that teething and breastfeeding were probably the most complicated parts of mothering a kid. Ha! That’s hilarious, right? I mean, from vaccines to diet (not the lose weight kind… the eat well kind) to what type of infections to look out for, there’s alot of questions that I need answering.

It is with this in mind that I ‘woohoo’d really loudly when I found out that Clicks and Babyline are hosting a series of workshops nationwide, aimed at expectant and new parents. The Baby Bootcamp seeks to provide expert advice, baby related information and demonstrations to these parents. (more…)
