Two kids under 2… #WIN a Kidz Brandz hamper! #TDIBrandz

|By Elana| Free Stuff!, Home

A few days ago, after the birth of my youngest, I realized the following;

a) I still look pregnant

b) I still look pregnant to other people …

c) I now have 2 kids under 2!

It’s become so real.  Motherhood is serious, but two under 2 is major!

We all know that everyone wants to give advice when you fall pregnant, or when your little one is sick,  or even when you need to introduce your toddler to their new sibling. Well, I want to give advice too…just because it’s free and also because you might not need it, but I DO!!! ( holds onto hair to pull it out)

I’ve heard that most toddlers misbehave before the new one arrives. I have been in denial thinking “how bad can it be….? ”  Out of the 100000 things I have experienced with my toddler, this stands out;

–  toddlers who “want it their way” –  learn to say “no” before yes!

–  want to hear the same song on that bloody cd in my car at least 10 times. Over and over.

–  want to hear the same song over and over and creates a title for it that I don’t understand like ” play boom boom” or ” play hooray”

– only says “please” when you say it.  So please say please.

– wants to potty train themselves and manage to get their nappy off, but only tells you about the poo after they’ve gone. That way you can scoop it up with roller towl and wash your hands ALL night long. We have mastered the pee, yea!

–  points at random men out of the shopping trolley and says ” oupa” thinking it means ” man”

–  says “chippiessssss” and goodness forbid if they don’t get it….

–  will try on shoes that are way too small for them and get frustrated that they have grown out of it!

–  will possibly be rough with the new baby, especially when they change her name to ” my baby”…. because the toddler thinks the baby is her doll.

– wants to be pushed around the house in a Babystyle Oyster Lite Twin! While I make racing car sounds.

Well, a few of my clients have knocked on my door to make my journey easier. A big thanks to Mark, Lisa and Trish from TDI Brandz. The hamper that we are giving away this week I received together with this Babystyle Oyster Lite Twin stroller. They are back in stock April/May this year!

#WIN with Runningbear! Shoes for our babies!

|By Elana| Free Stuff!, Home

I’ve always bought shoes for my babies. I recently unpacked a size 1 sneaker that will be handed to the new arrival soon! Even when my baby couldn’t walk yet, I dressed her from head to toe, with the best quality shoes. That’s how we grew up. Mom always told my siblings and I, “You would always be fed and wear good shoes” .

I recently received one of the cutest pair of moccasins. Running Bear is the brainchild of advocate and mother Lisa K who is the wife of South African pop star Danny K. She has a love and affinity for shoes and children so this proved to be the perfect marriage of both.

The brand was hugely inspired by Lisa’s very personal experience with her first, born son Jayden. She struggled to find a shoe that was stylish, comfortable and functional while still benefitting his development. This resulted in the creation of the Running Bear Moccasins.

Running Bear Moccasins are designed with love and care by Lisa herself always with the objective of keeping your little one’s precious feet in mind. The elastic opening makes the moccasins easy to put on and take off and most importantly they stay on! These fashionable, soft leather moccasins imitate barefoot walking and help strengthen their muscles and ligaments. They are handmade with highest quality leather, sourced internationally. They are durable and are suitable for both pre-walkers and toddlers alike. They are crafted in such a way that encourages the natural development of your child’s growing feet without inhibiting them.

The range is fun, cool and playful with a contemporary bohemian undertone that will undoubtedly make your child stand out from the crowd. Every pair of moccasins comes with a complimentary, personalized book called The Story of Running Bear, dreamed up by Lisa herself. The book makes for perfect night time reading and will have your little one looking forward to putting on their Running Bear Moccasins everyday.

The attention to detail and personal touch is what makes this brand feel really special. “I care deeply about creating a product that I would be proud of my child wearing. No corners were cut in creating a shoe of the highest quality.” says Lisa. Running Bear Moccasins are affordable, stylish, functional and funky. Make your little one a part of our Running Bear family!

The collection will be available at select boutique stores and online at http://www.runningbear.co.za !!

WIN!! with Speedo!

|By Elana| Free Stuff!, Home

This week one of my sisters’ little ones gave her a hug and said, ” Mamma, you give nice hugs, like a big soft mattress!”  The biggest compliment to any mom, and the biggest insult if that comment came from a grownup! (I had massive giggles).

Soft or not, Hello Summer! It’s coming, and I’ve never ever had my summer body ready for summer. The expectations are just too high, my goals unrealistic, and after all, I have been pregnant more the last 4 years, than trying to work on that perfect body anyway.

So, I roped in our friends at Speedo to make us feel comfortable and confident in and out of the water.

They carefully placed prints, detailing, colour and neckline shapes to help your body appear in perfect proportion, creating optical illusions that enhance and shape the body: slimming, lengthening, balancing or creating curves, while distracting from the bits you’re not so keen on. You know, the soft mattressy bits… Just kidding.  They are really amazing though.  All-over body shaping fabric to smooth and shape your tummy, waist and bum.

Because we love water, they’ve used XTRA LIFE LYCRA® fibre in our swimwear.  That means, It lasts up to 10 times longer than unprotected elastane so our swimsuits fit and shape like new for longer.
