If you’re looking for a fabulous hair style for Summer that requires very little effort, I may have found the perfect solution! I’ve been mixing it up with hair extensions lately and the results have been super cute hair styles that require such little effort!
One of my secret worries as a mom is that my kids can’t see properly. Having good eyesight means the difference between a good and bad quality of life, especially at primary school!
We tend to take our eyesight for granted but poor vision is very common. It’s recommended for kids to get their first eye test early as 6 years old!
My birthday getaway was a complete surprise! My husband has never managed to surprise me in all our 13 years. He does not like to celebrate birthdays. Every year I have what he calls my “birthday depression“. I would anticipate his lack of preparation for my birthday and get moody in advance!
This time however, he had a smirk on his face for days and became very secretive. When I demanded to know her name, he told me that he had planned a 24 hour birthday getaway just for us! And then he couldn’t resist adding “See? A leopard can change it’s stripes!“.
Every Monday I go into the new week with the church message (or my daily devotion) still fresh on my mind and then BAM, life happens!
With work pressure, bad news everywhere you look and getting emotionally drained by other humans I get stressed out and it’s as if my quiet time never happened.
If I seem to generally be cheerful and optimistic, my secret weapon is learning God’s promises and leaning on them when I feel stressed.
The bible does not promise us a stress-free life but it is a treasure trove full of promises that God made to us on how to live out our lives with the confidence that a Mighty God is with us every step of the way!
Well it happened – Alexandra turned 7 years old! To celebrate her birthday we invited two of her best friends over for a real girly pamper party!
As many of you know, I’ve been down with a bad cold this week. The reason why you’d know this is because I’ve probably mentioned it…a few times. The thing is, when I’m sick I want the world to know about it. I don’t know how to suffer with quiet dignity!
I’ve never claimed to be a perfect mom, it’s just easier to share the good stuff. You’ll always here me talking about the nice side of motherhood and sympathetically just listening when you talk about your struggles. My pride prevents me from sharing about my own struggles but if there’s one thing I am learning, it’s that we all need support.
Every mom has moments when she feels like a crap mom so I need to stop letting my pride censor me and say that I feel like I’ve failed my child.
When you’re not the fun parent you always have to make sure you also get to feature in your daughter’s life. Unlike the fun parent, you have plan out mother daughter dates. Spending time together doesn’t always just happen!
All Gold have just come out with the most brilliant way to celebrate South African heritage! Have you seen the All Gold LIMITED EDITION Bottles?
Exam time is upon us! We are in full study/exam lock-down mode around here. If there’s one thing I’ve learnt it’s that teaching your child how to study will make a huge difference in helping them do well in the exams.
Exams are a stressful time for both the parents and children. I can’t say I’ve ever given birth to a child is self-motivated to study but with a bit of experimentation, I found some study methods that are helping them to study better!
