School holidays are around the corner and I’ve been dreaming about a winter getaway for the family. I’m a sucker for scrolling through online accommodation listings and first read about Afristay.com on a blog a year or two ago. When they approached me to review their site, I was totally up for it and I must admit that I spent a silly amount researching local accommodation options for my wishlist last night.
Charlotte is a fellow heart mama that I ‘met’ on Instagram a few years back and I’ve loved following her family’s journey. She’s a dynamic girl mom and I have no doubt that her girls will grow up as fierce little feminists who will change the world. Charlotte and I and were in touch a many months ago about her sharing her story on my blog but her second daughter had just arrived home and things were a little crazy for them. Life has settled a bit since then and I’m so glad that I can share the Bieldt adoption story here today.Continue Reading
I was pretty convinced that there wouldn’t be a single decent smiling photo from our recent family shoot with Tabs from Grand Little Adventure, but I was so wrong!

We’re a Netflix family – we signed up soon after a stormy night messed up the aerial connection to our Multichoice dish and required us to book a service guy to come out to see what was what. Let’s just say that the aerial remains unserviced and we’re very happy with our fuss-free Netflix subscription. After a one month trial we managed to persuade the family to share a family contract with us (it wasn’t too hard!) that can host up to four users plus a kids profile. We’ve found Netflix to be not only a cheaper option for us but also we are now firm believers that TV on demand is the way to go.Continue Reading
