Win a R500 online shopping voucher with Naartjie & Heart Mama Blog

naartjie

Naartjie Kids, everyone’s favourite designer kids clothing label turns 25 this year. From humble beginnings in a garage in Llandudno, Cape Town, Naartjie Kids has become a global company with 27 retail stores in major shopping centres throughout South Africa as well as an online store that ships to any location within South Africa. The secret to the Naartjie Kids brand remains its’ distinctive styling of supreme quality garments for children from 0 – 12 years old.

I just love Naartjie, no surprises there. I love the simple, timeless styles in vibrant colours. I adore colour and patterns and I swoon when colour and patterns collide. Best. I also love that Naartjie agreed with me and used my handsome boy for two shoots this year – #mombrag. As if I need any more reasons to love this brand, you have to agree with me that Naartjie clothes are pretty durable (aka kid-resistant) and just last that little bit longer. My kids have been lucky to inherit some pre-loved Naartjie clothing items that look as good as new even five years down the line. Bonus!

I stumbled across the Soul Naturals Facebook page this week and just love everything in their product range – I love the trendy kid’s outfits, the accessories and the fact that all skin care products are made from natural and organic ingredients. I love supporting local momtrepeneurs and am so excited for this giveaway.

Nahtalie and Lonneke Egersdorfer, are the founding owners of Soul Naturals. This is what they say about why they do what they do,

“Having a child is a pivotal event in any person’s existence. It redefines you as a human, as a caregiver, as a responsible member of this planet and as an active and fully present participant in this crazy-wonderful thing called life.

We are two such mums. What initially began as a search for the ideal soothing bum cream for our own tots has culminated in the creation of Soul Naturals. Our online store is stocked with products from crocheted loafers to baby massage oil – all of which are made from natural materials, making them sure to be as gentle as a whisper on your little ones.

Only the most natural and organic ingredients are used throughout the Soul Naturals ranges, with the primary aim being to care for your most precious beings whilst doing as little damage to the environment as possible. So if you have found yourself here through recommendation, or by chance, take the time to browse through our unique products and enjoy making the right choice – for both your child’s today and tomorrow.”

Get ready for summer with Squish

Getting out of the house with your baby or toddler can feel like the relocation of an entire circus.  Take a few Squish Baby or Squish & Go pouches along for easy, self-feed meals-on-the-go.

Packaged in lightweight, consumer-friendly pouches with twist nozzles that increase convenience and reduce the mess.  Sand-free beach snacks, light-weight hiking fuel, stress-free food on the plane, train or in the car. Celebrate the start of Summer with the kids by popping some Squish pouches into the freezer and creating a ‘Summer Slush Snack’!

The Squish Baby range ‘spout pouch’ packaging encourages self-feeding in babies eager for eating independence and introduces them to a variety of new flavours. Squish Baby can be mixed with cooked vegetables, meat, pasta or rice to create a tasty meal or snack and are specially prepared for you to introduce your baby to first foods. Squish & Go offers a range of purees for all ages.

From orchard to pouch, Kira just LOVES Squish & Go. Self feeding has never been so easy or fuss-free! (You know you're onto a good thing when you don't mind licking spilt baby food off your fingers!)

Bennetts for Babies is one of those brands that have really stood the test of time and so as a result it has become the natural brand choice for me when it comes to Baby Bum Creme and Fragrance-Free Aqueous Cream. Not only are their products affordable (we go through A LOT of aqueous cream in this house), they have also been tried and tested over the years. Bennetts has proven to be a brand that we can trust. I can honestly say that neither Ilan or Kira have ever had nappy rash ever in their lives. When I changed Ilan’s nappy for the first time, the Nursing Sister at his place of safety said, ‘You can’t go wrong with Bennetts’ and I have to agree.

When Bennetts for Babies officially welcomed me to the world of ‘Mommy blogging’, I was only to happy to receive a gift hamper in exchange for a review and write up on my blog. Naturally. Bennetts gets a thumbs up from me, with or without a hamper. Click here to read more about the Bennetts for Babies full product range. Their products are dermatologically approved, clincally tested for mildness and suitable for sensitive skin which is great because Ilan suffers from awful eczema flare-ups.

My hamper included the following: Baby Aqueous Cream – fragrance-free & fragranced,  Baby bum creme, Saline nose drops with a soft tip nasal aspirator (commonly referred to as a snot-sucker in mom circles), Easi-breathe vapocaps, Easi-breath kit, Aqueous bath drops, Nipple cream (I won’t be needing this), Mozzie stick, Aqueous Bath Drops and Sunblock for babies & toddlers. You know you’re a mom when you can get excited about a hamper like this! Even Ryan was stoked.

And now for the reason you’ve clicked the link to this blog post – Heart Mama Blog has a Bennetts for Babies hamper giveaway valued at R500. To stand a chance to win this hamper, please follow these steps:

1. Comment below & mention your favourite Bennetts product.

2. Click here to like Heart Mama Blog on Facebook.

3. Share the ‘Win with Bennetts & Heart Mama Blog’ post via Facebook to your profile.

The winner will be selected via Random.org on Mon 29 September. The winner drawn must have followed all three steps above in order to qualify for the prize. Competition is open to South African residents only and collection can be arranged from Cape Town. 

Hooray! Danelle Hess, you are Heart Mama Blog’s very first winner.
