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!
Christmas is on its way – tra la la! We’ve made the decision to simplify the silly season in our home and have chosen to keep it ‘battery-free’ too, thanks to a clever suggestion via the world wide web. Another excellent online discovery is this awesome online shop – Sensational Kids. It is the brainchild of a paediatric Occupational Therapist and is set up to assist customers in selecting the “just right” toy and the products in the online shop are categorised by age, category as well as key developmental skills. Easy peasy.Continue Reading

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.”
