This week our family got to spend the afternoon checking out all the reasons why the V & A Waterfront is the place to be with your kids these school holidays. The Waterfront is a special place for our family as we often take the kids down there for an ice cream and to walk around enjoying the street performers and live music, so this invitation was something we genuinely looked forward to over the whole week leading up to this family adventure. And it was even more exciting because Dad took some time off work to join us.
Hey boss moms, high fives to you! I know from personal experience that working from home with kids is no joke and that there’s a fine line between being real with your colleagues and clients about your current work situation and maintaining a level of professionalism at the same time, especially when you just have to take that call and you have a kid clinging to your leg.
I’m not looking to grow name-brand aware kids, but there is something to be said about the functional quality and consistently on point design from the Nike kids range. I’m a fan. This spring Nike’s bold-coloured basics and offbeat prints ensure that both girls and boys can be kitted out in wear that’s both fashion-forward and functional.
Some of you may know that I’ve been on the lookout for a suitable princess dress for Kira for the longest time without luck. Suitable meaning – suitably sparkly, but not too over the top, and a nice price. So when Spree contacted me about their new Image Search Feature, I’d give it a whirl to find a reason to make my girl twirl. (Do you like what I did there?)
So what is this ‘Image Search Feature’ on the Spree app and how does it work? Well, it’s a feature that allows you to either take a live photo or upload and image (from anywhere) and search for a specific clothing item that you may like. Example of this: I see a picture of a sparkly princess dress on Pinterest that I’d love to get for my daughter. But where would I be able to get something like this in South Africa? Well, I can take a screenshot of the dress and upload it on the Spree app and then click ‘search’ to see if they have anything similar in their online store. Spree will list item options that are similar in colour, style and texture too and essentially helping you find similar items on Spree that you can shop right then and there. Which I did!
Here’s how easy it was for me to shop for sparkles with Spree:
Step 1: Find an image of a item that you’re looking for. I was looking for a princess dress similar to the one below in pink or purple. I found this pic on Pinterest:Continue Reading
