How to help your child to adapt to life’s changes

No one ever said life would be easy. Things happen; things change. As humans, we are all able to adapt to change, but as with all things in life, we need to learn the skill. We have recently had to help our 3-year-old to adapt to many changes, including those that came with the Coronavirus and a baby brother. Here are some of the ways we have been able to make the road a little less bumpy.

The best South African advertisements of all time

I’ve been binge watching old South African advertisements on YouTube the last couple of days and I just can’t deal! Here are some of my favourites. Oh, how I love South Africa!

FedAir has a new, proactive approach

In November, Federal Airlines (FedAir) announced a 50% discount as a South African Residents fare to safari landing strips as part of what they call a revolutionary new approach. I spoke to Julian Edmunds, CCO at FastJet, Zimbabwe and Federal Airlines in Johannesburg about this new approach and what we can expect in the coming months…

The animation, The Elfkins, a friendly reminder of helping others

I’ve always been a fan of stories with lessons. Watching a movie and walking out without feeling touched, motivated or inspired feels like a total waste of time and money to me. The Elfkins, an exciting animation (and a story with a lesson) will be released in theatres on 25 December 2020 and it’s a movie dedicated to making a difference. Or is it baking a difference?

Review: Land Rover Defender from a woman’s perspective

I got to review the Land Rover Defender and as a woman, mother and entrepreneur, I am definitely a fan. I took it off-road for an early morning drive; I took it dancing in the city streets. I let it pose between Jacaranda trees and I let it decorate my driveway. For a day, it was mine to drive and I loved it.

Len Muller’s latest album, Oorgenoeg speaks to the heart

He is a South African artist whom I believe will reach great heights. He’s got talent that evolves all the time and he’s not afraid to sing from the heart. His latest album, Oorgenoeg is proof enough that Len Muller is one of a kind.

Six Dogs’ Honey Lime Gin

I love it when there’s good that comes out of a venture and that’s exactly what happened with Worcester-based Six Dogs Distillery’s latest launch: A honey-infused gin that forms part of a pioneering project to save distressed bees.

TAME: Brilliant pet app for pet parents

It was a tough year, but lockdown sure had its perks too. Especially for entrepreneurs Shannon Sweetman and Kyne Lupini who combined their love for their pets and their passion for the pet industry and created an app dedicated to modern pet parents all around South Africa.

Sugaring versus waxing

A couple of years ago, I went for a sugar treatment instead of my normal waxing routine and I was immediately converted.

Mystery Plant Box Surprise

Don’t you just love the feeling of a new plant in your home? That pink orchid in the corner or the ‘Skoonma se Tong’ in that beautiful pot you just couldn’t resist. How about a mystery plant box every month? Knock-knock… SURPRISE!
