Stuff We’re Loving Right Now


I love trying out new things for my family and always find myself shopping around for products which are healthier, make life easier and sometimes just for the sake of trying new things. Change is as good as holiday – or so they say!

As a blogger, I also often get to try out new things for myself and my family and I love sharing my experiences and take on certain products.

I thought I’d start a new little series and share my views on our favorite stuff. Some sponsored, some not!

Here’s what we are loving right now:


Gone are the baby days and the food that goes along with it- at 18 months Aidan is experimenting and playing with different foods and textures. I recently changed his cereal from the baby stuff to this Futurelife kids cereal for kids 13-36 months, and he loves it! He even picks up the bowl, licks it clean and asks for more.

The only problem is finding this on the store shelves. I found it at Pick n’ Pay last month but can’t seem to find it anywhere again!



After playing a small part in the new Kids Spur Menu, I was so thrilled when Spur once again contacted me, to let Alyssa try out the new Spur Goggles.

It’s such a cool concept – simply slide your smartphone into these cardboard virtual reality headsets and you will be whisked away to a world of adventure. You can travel the globe, play exciting games or become part of amazing 3D videos, which can be downloaded on the Spurtribe website.

If you want a pair, you better hurry – there are literally only 100 000 Spur Goggles available. Get yours for only R20 when you buy any Spur meal. They are suitable for all ages, and are compatible with the following smartphones:

  • Samsung Galaxy S4, S5, S6, S7 or Nexus
  • Apple: iPhone 5, 5s, 6 or 6s
  • Google: Nexus 4 or 5
  • Motorola: Moto X



Kurt and I have always loved browsing markets together and over the years he has always supported Maybru, who have a stand at Root 44 Market in Stellenbosch. Maybru was also at Kamers earlier this year and he decided to get matching T’s for him and Aidan which they wore out this weekend.

Aint they cute?




So I’ve told you about my recent running goals and accomplishments of which Parkruns have been part of. For each Parkrun you have to hand your printed barcode to a volunteer who scans it at the end. The problem with this piece of paper, is that if you running with clothing with no pockets, where do you put it? Even if you have one of those little-hidden pockets in your running tights, it can get rather wet and sweaty by the time you finish the 5km. It’s not fun handing it to someone to scan … gross!

In one of the Parkrun newsletters I saw that a company called TenBits makes these cool Parkrun swift bands which solves this exact problem! I got one and ran with it for the first time on Saturday – what a pleasure!

It costs R165 and comes in pink and black.

    Love that Parkrun idea! We tried the new Future life flakes and the kids adored it. Then I could not find it anywhere for about a month – and at last found it in Checkers this weekend. I think some of their newer products take a bit long to get to all the shelves

      I also find that’s the case! I managed to find the kids Futurelife at clicks this week. They seem to have a wider range than the grocery stores 🙂

    Those t-shirts are so cute!

    Swift-bands – isn’t often the simplest ideas that makes the most sense ?

      Thanks Alet
      I agree! Simple always makes the most sense for me.
