I had it all planned. I didn’t want to get married for the wedding dress or the walking down the aisle part. That part always frightened me I didn’t want everyone staring at me. I wanted the wedding part because a honeymoon meant getting onto a plane and seeing the world. Love and travel go hand in hand for me, and what better way to see the world than with the one you love. #Cheesy
This past Friday my family and I were gifted tickets to Marvel Universe Live. Marvel and Disney feature strongly in our house and so the girls really were beyond excited for the show.
The show started at 8 pm and both my girls had been threatened with “no show” the whole week if they didn’t behave. With that said, they really didn’t know what to expect.
Since we went to the show, I have chatted to a few people this past weekend who were all interested to find out my honest review. I thought I would share it on here. That way I can give you all a heads up without giving away any spoilers, so you know what to expect.
[GIFTED] You may or may not be aware that I love going to the theatre, and my girls are following suit. This has been helped along nicely by the fact that we get to go to shows that are done impeccably well. Recently our family had the pleasure of being hosted at the opening of the new musical show “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Jr" by The People's Theatre. It was brilliant!
I spent two weeks in Umhlanga with my family last August and whilst we did manage to tick off a number of awesome things on our Durban Bucket-list, there is so much more I want to do on our next trip. This is a list of some of the best things to do in Durban with kids! I hope the snot-flickers and I manage to get to some of those we missed on our next visit. Take a look at our list, and please do let me know if we missed anything?
Children's theatre is my absolute best and who doesn't love Dr Seuss? Don't answer, I just couldn't bare the thought of a world where people do not like Dr Seuss. Well, at least I don't have to think about that because Seussical Jr the musical is coming to the Joburg Peoples Theatre!
Seussical JR. The Musical
Seussical Jr the musical runs through the school holidays, with the final performance on Sunday, 28th April 2019. The best part about it is that the fun and entertainment is for young and old. Miss T was a few months old when we took her and Miss K to watch a show at the Peoples Theatre in the Johannesburg theatre complex. Seriously, all ages are welcomed, even babies.
It's brilliant. You don't need to stress out if the kids are not quiet as the interaction with the children and the actors is the right amount. I find it just the right volume and noise level too for Miss K who can get overwhelmed by too much noise. See ... everyone's a winner.
The second annual One Step at a Time Cancer Warrior Walk was held at the Johannesburg Zoo. The event was organised to commemorate World Cancer Day. The girls and I were present at the first inaugural walk back in 2018. So I jumped at the opportunity to be present at the second one.
When life ... okay let me rephrase that. If Yolandie from a Zesty Life throws you an opportunity to go to Carlton Hair in Hyde Park and get a makeover, do you even think about it?
Nope. There is no thinking. You always say, "Yes."
And so I invite you on my Hair Makeover day that, as I type this, still feels surreal.
When life throws you curveballs, you Uber to a #MamaMeetUpSA event and catch Malfy Gin to review
Do you need a moms night out? I have seen the #MamaMeetUpSA events advertised, but due to family commitments I haven’t the opportunity to attend up till now. I was so excited to attend the last #MamaMeetUpSA event of the year . After the year I have had I needed a night out to have some fun, and wow, did this event deliver. This is my Malfy Gin and #MamaMeetupSA review
My introduction to Thomas the Tank Engine began many, many years ago when I was an au-pair in London. I looked after boys and one of their favourite shows was you guessed it, "Thomas the Tank Engine."
They had the toys and the accessories, and it kept them on track (I couldn't resist). I knew that one day, when I became a mom of boys, that Thomas and Friends would be one of our go-to toys.
Fast-forward life. Things had not gone according to plan. I am now the mom of two little girls, not boys.
That isn’t to say that they didn’t enjoy their outing. Mommy, and Thomas delivered. We were invited to the South African Premier of the latest Thomas the Tank Engine movie, Thomas and Friends – Big World! Big Adventures!
