Wass up! 


There are some things that will always brighten up my day and that’s skin products that smell absolutely divine! I also love supporting locally made products.

Wass is a 100% natural and organic range of products made in Cape Town. I discovered her recently at Kamers and have been using her products ever since! We have already gone through two body balms and we’re almost done with the bath salts. I started using the bath salts for my kids when they went through their bouts of flu. It helped to clear their sinuses and was a great way to calm them down before bed time. They even slept better!

As you can see, I bought the whole range. Her products are categorized by seasons. I love all of them for different reasons. But right now, my favs are autumn and fall. I also love the travel size roll ons which she calls temple oils. She has one for day, night and travel. I love putting them on throughout the day.

These products are kid approved. It may seem excessive to use such lavish products on them but after they were born, I realized they both had very sensitive skin and was allergic to many chemicals in the heavily scented baby products. I became more conscious of the products I used on them and therefore, our family now uses a lot of organic and natural skin products. Our skin is happy and it helps that everything smells so darn good. My kids even request the bath salts and our daughter loves the body balms! LOL So for us, this is a no brainer…I will be replenishing our stock right after this post!

Where to buy: Unfortunately, no one stocks Wass in Joburg. She sells at a couple stores in Cape Town. You have to head to her website, Wass. The bath salts and her scrub are not listed on the website but I’m sure you can drop her an email to order them…definitely a bath must for the cold winter!

Little Miss & Mr Men Obsessed

Little Miss & Mr Men Obsessed

So at bedtime, we read to our kids every night and currently, they are obsessed with Little Miss and Mr. Men books. I say currently but it’s been over a year that I bought Becket his first set of Mr. Men books for his 4th birthday. It was an instant hit so 6 months later, I got Finley her first set of Little Miss books. I can’t tell you how many times we have read each book but they have become classics in our home. There is always a Mr. Men or Little Miss book in the night’s storytime rotation. So it’s not surprising that I love to give these books as part of a birthday present! They are small, cute, and easy to read. Finley loves to read them now on her own too. The original collections are great but I’m a bit obsessed myself with the newer ones like Mr. Men at Bedtime.

Of course, you can find them here in Joburg at Exclusive Books but even better, is that you can find them on Takealot for a deal.  For everyone else, I am sure you can find them on Amazon.





Pure Comfort


I was skeptical when I first heard that Krispy Kreme was coming to Joburg. My initial thought was it won’t be the same. Yet as I walked into Rosebank Mall towards Krispy Kreme, I could already smell the deliciousness of the donuts cooking! The scent was exactly how I remembered. They are pure bliss once they touch your lips…it’s melt in your mouth goodness! It’s a crowd pleaser all around for the old, young, and even those who claim they don’t like sweets. Their classic is the original glazed donut but if that’s too plain for you they have a dozen more flavors you can choose from. My favorite is the cinnamon glazed.

place: Krispy Kreme

where: The Zone @ Rosebank

my take: pick up a dozen for that next playdate, you will be everyone’s favorite
