Stuff We’re Loving Right Now – October

This month has been a busy one thus far and it’s so crazy to think that in less than 2 months the silly season will be hitting us!

I’ve been feeling so run down and “rushed” lately, I’m not sure this is the right words but that’s exactly how I feel – like there’s too little time in the day to getting everything done and just a bit fatigued. Some things have made our lives a little bit easier or took the edge off this month though, and perhaps it could work for you too…

Here are a few things which have helped us out this month:



I love shopping for baby items on Babygroup and recently found this dinner plate, which allows your kid to fit building blocks and toys on. Even the fork and spoon “clicks” onto the plate. This works like a charm when you are trying to get a restless child to eat. Aidan is a busy boy and it can sometimes be a challenge to get him in a calm state, whereby he can eat properly!



A few months ago, I received a Nap Strap to try out. I was very eager to try it out, as the bigger front-facing seat Alyssa upgraded to, does not have the best headrest for sleeping. Her head kept tilting forward when she fell asleep and it looked as if her neck was not properly supported. The nap strap does the trick of keeping her head back when the car moves around, so that she can sleep peacefully during the car ride.


My face has been extremely dry lately, to the point where its peeling! I think its due to some early morning runs without any cap or sunblock. I really learnt the hard way. I went looking for a cure for my flaky face and the ladies over at Sorbet recommend I try the sun protection face cream SPF50 as well as a facial tissue oil to put under my moisturiser every night. Its worked wonders to my face and also thanks to the facial we enjoyed on our Couples spa day to celebrate our wedding anniversary this month, my face no longer feels like sandpaper.



When we received an invitation to get a sneak peak of the first Dunkin-Donuts store at N1 City, I can’t tell you how excited my husband was. I don’t blame him. We were so lucky to have a taste of whatever we wanted on the menu and for those of you who haven’t had a taste just yet – the donuts are AH-MAZING and the Coffee is just magnificent. The kids also had access to the newly opened play area, which was the perfect after school treat.

I just received confirmation that Dunkin Donuts will be opening its second store in Cape Town – in Canal walk, that is. They will open their doors on the 4th of November. Yay!

      It’s unbelievable! Do get that sunblock – the sun is harsher than we think. The CT wind also disguises it x
