Win a Paw Patrol Zoomer Marshall worth R2000!

THIS COMPETITION IS NOW CLOSED. The winner is: CHRIS L OOSTHUIZEN! Congrats. This is the true story of how I won the Mom of the Year Award. It started with an email from Just Fun Kidz, asking if Ryan and Oliver wanted to review the new Paw Patrol Zoomer Marshall on their YouTube channel, The Mighty Squish. And it ended, well… it hasn’t ended at all, really because the boys have been playing with their pet non-stop for weeks now. Even Travis the Lionheart has been curious about the pup that has been roaming the house!   If you’re looking for […]

Win a Kenwood mixer worth over R5000 with Sasko Quick Treats

THIS COMPETITION IS NOW CLOSED. WINNER WILL BE ANNOUNCED ON 26 AUGUST. Sponsored post You know what goes well with flapjacks? Salted caramel sauce. Except on the two occasions that I have tried to make it at home, I once ended up hacking chunks of sugar crust out of my best saucepan, and on the second occasion, with a dark gooey mess that tasted burnt. Sasko Quick Treats comes in Flapjack Mix, Cookie Mix, Pancake Mix, Scone Mix, Vanilla Muffin Mix, Chocolate Muffin Mix and Bran Muffin Mix. Flapjacks are easier, especially if you’re using a pre-made mix like the ones […]

We review the Munchbox – plus, you can WIN one for yourself!

The winner is: ANDREA!This competition is now closed. If you follow me on Instagram, you will know how much I enjoy spending time in the kitchen with my boys – usually baking. I am not much of a cook, but I can bake like Nigella on five Red Bulls and a sugar high. Watching my boys lick the batter off the beaters is one of the single most fulfilling experiences of parenthood. I am a feeder, okay? When I was asked if I would like to review the Munchbox, I leapt at the chance. I have been wanting to enroll […]

Share your #LindorMOMents and you could win a Lindt hamper worth R900!

If you have read some of my latest posts, like this one about Mom Bosses, and this one over here about Time-Saving Tips, you wouldn’t be surprised to hear that all I want for Mother’s Day this year is some ‘me-time’. I am talking about getting a pedicure while reading a trashy paperback and eating chocolates. Or finally getting a chance to explore some of Jozi’s markets. By myself. Now that is my idea of an afternoon well spent! The thing is, we talk about making more ‘me-time’, but it never actually happens. So I am challenging you: be selfish! Don’t wait for […]

Here's your chance to win a Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet just like mine!

And the winner of this competition is: Naomi Cane. THIS COMPETITION IS NOW CLOSED! The thing about Mondays is that if you kickstart them right-way-up, then chances are you’ll sail through the week. So let me help make your Monday more marvellous (love me some alliteration). You know that Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet that I have been gushing about? How would you like to win one? It is worth around R10 000, and it’s become indispensable to me since we got ours last year. I’ve been using it while I’m baking, taking photos of the kids, listening to audiobooks, and […]

WIN a R2500 Dis-Chem voucher, with Multiply!

Money is a big theme in my life this year. I made the move from full-time freelance to starting my own agency because I’m tired of living on the edge. You know what edge I am talking about. The “please don’t get sick and need to go to the doctor this weekend kids, because mommy is only getting paid on Monday” edge. It’s been a long, uphill battle to financial wellness, and I’m finally getting there. Momentum asked me to take their Financial Wellness Assessment as part of their Multiply rewards programme. It seemed like perfect timing because in our […]
