What Is At The End Of The Rainbow? *WIN* One Of 4 Prizes With RUBY Jewellery and Denise’s Delights To The Total Value of R2400

“Somewhere over the rainbow, skies are blue and the dreams that you dare to dream really do come true” – Lyman Frank Baum

What do you get when you combine a good dose of Caffeine, some Fairydust, a heavenly slice of rainbow cake and pots-of-gold jewelry? One ultra-special, yummy, sparkling giveaway!

To make this giveaway possible, I teamed up with Robyn & Janine – two fabulous sisters from Sea Point in Cape Town.Robyn embarked on her jewelry collection journey 13 years ago under the RUBY label and Janine is the inspired cake and cupcake supremo at Denise’s Delights – named after their mother. Family is best ♥

I have been coveting the Ruby collection for quite some time now and I love the high quality products. Ruby is an independent designer jewelry brand founded on the principles of ethical fashion. Ruby draws on the talents and skills of expert local silversmiths and gem artisans; as well as the traditional beading techniques of a township-based job creation initiative started by Ruby’s owner and designer, Robyn Lidsky. The Ruby collection has been carefully curated to reflect various colour palettes, rare metals, and semi-precious gems and crystals; and there are pieces suited to special occasions, a night out on the town, or all day every day wear. All items are hand-made in South Africa in limited quantities, and may vary slightly depending on available gems and unique beads and components – making each item that much more unique!

Look at her amazing Pot Of Gold Collection… which one is your favorite?

Denise’s Delights is a boutique cake, cupcake and catering outlet in Sea Point that is currently in its 26th year. Their house specialty is unique cupcakes with flavours such as red velvet (with cream cheese icing), BarOne, Lemon Meringue, Rocky road and gentle Vanilla. Their catering offering is equally tantalizing – they can handle any size function or you can make use of their incredible made-to-order specialties – must-tasters include their oriental fish, and scrumptious quiches. Their latest designer cake creation is a fabulous multi-layered Rainbow Cake (which you can stand a chance of winning).

Both Denise’s Delights and Ruby are based in festive, colourful Sea Point, one of Cape Town’s most loved commercial and high density residential neighborhoods – with it’s glorious Promenade, Atlantic Ocean views and diverse urban heritage. Its main road is a treasure trove of delights and reflects the diversity and cosmopolitan aspect of the area.

{Review} Tiny Hiney Online Cloth Diaper Store And Charlie Banana Cloth Diapers {Competition Closed}

I am trying really hard to lead an environmentally friendly lifestyle, one thing I have not quite grasped is not using disposable diapers.

I am a working mom and the last thing I need is extra chores or more things to do in the evenings or on weekends! It is for this reason that I have always held off on using cloth diapers – in my mind it really was just too much effort. Nadia from Tiny Hiney offered to let me try out the Charlie Bananna One Size Pocket Nappy and the Size Small Pocket Diaper before committing, to show me that it really is not as bad as I think it is! I am not a cloth nappy connoisseur at all, this was my first try and this review will be from the perspective of a first time cloth nappy using mommy! Continue reading

*** CLOSED **** { Review + GIVEAWAY } My 7 Day Super Juice And Soup Detox Diet With Juice Revolution – Why I Did It, My Experience and Results

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

I can’t believe it, but I did it! Thanks to the amazing support from Fiona Stander,  founder of Juice Revolution, I have completed my 7 Day Super Juice And Soup Detox Diet. Fiona is a mom herself, and an all-round lovely and supportive person… there is no-one better to have on speed dial as you embark on this journey!

Why I Did It….

I tried a 5-Day Juice Detox from a different company not too long ago and even though I felt great afterwards, I was not very impressed by the results regarding my weight-loss. It was also my first ever attempt so I did not know any better to be honest. Anyway, when Fiona asked me to try out her program I decided to go for it – I had a couple of fashion industry events to attend and I needed to start work in about two weeks… I wanted to look and feel my best.

When I had my first baby I was back at my pre-pregnancy weight within two months after she was born, it really was not that hard…. This time around, I just cannot seem to shed the weight. I had my second baby four months ago, and before you start huffing and puffing – this is not about vanity or body shaming. This is about breaking down in tears every time I need to get dressed and go somewhere because none of my clothes fit, it is about feeling uncomfortable, it is about not being able to recognize my own body. I have always been curvy, and I do love my curves – I have always embraced them… however, I would not describe myself as curvy anymore – I will describe myself as overweight. I felt heavy, I felt tired all the time, my body was an absolute war zone and my skin had gone to hell… I did not feel healthy. I do not think people realize how much pregnancy takes out of you. I picked up 26 kg’s in total while being pregnant with Knox, and before I started the 7 Day Super Juice And Soup Detox Diet I had only lost 4 kg’s post pregnancy. He weighed 2.9 kg’s at birth, then you still need to account for the weight of the placenta and water, etc.- you do the math. I did not actually lose anything.

I wanted more energy, I wanted to save my skin, I wanted to lose weight, I wanted to feel healthy again. I am not completely unrealistic, I know this program won’t make me lose 26 kg’s, but it is a start.

Bosworth Bakery – Supporting Our Local Momtrepreneurs… And Having Cake While Doing So. {COMPETITION CLOSED}

This post is a little overdue… but I needed time to come out of my cake coma first.

About a week ago Megan Bosworth showed up at my door with the most beautiful personalized cake. Megan is a very loyal follower of my little blog and it always warms my heart when a comment of hers pops up somewhere. As you know, this blog is a bit of a hobby of mine –  I do love it dearly, but I am no professional writer. So when someone spends time and effort to show some gratitude towards my work…well…
