{Subscription Service Review & Reveal} Lingerie Letters October Pair

Hi guys! Happy Monday! How was your weekend? I had the worst week last week - but luckily it's a new week full of awesome possibilities.

Today I'm sharing my October Lingerie Letter with you. As always it's another gorgeous pair of lingerie this month - all pink and white (my favourite colour combo!). I have fallen head over heels for this subscription service - I love receiving my pretty pair each month. It's a little treat for me that I really enjoy. 

So what is Lingerie Letters if you are new here? It's a Proudly South African based company that sends you a pretty pair of underwear delivered to your door monthly. Since I decided to treat Alex to a book subscription I wanted to get me something too - and who doesn't love pretty underwear?

The underwear is all locally made and the products locally sourced too (the underwear looks and feels super soft and delicate - just like you would want it to feel. 

The website has three options - Thongs, Briefs or Surprise Me!…

{Subscription Service Review & Reveal } September Kids Book Club Book

Hi guys! Happy Thursday. How has your week been so far?

I'm a little behind with the sharing of my subscription boxes this month - so I'm only getting round to sharing Alex's September Kids Book Club goodies with you. 

As I mentioned there - Alex does read every night before bedtime - this is a strong rule we stick to every night. He loves reading and he often walks around with a fact book or Encyclopedia in his hand reading everyone facts about volcanoes, dinosaurs or the human body.

I love that Kids Book Club send us a cute book, an activity book and a cute bag every month. These bags are awesome if you go shopping to throw in your bag and let the kids help out packing groceries.

So more about the service again if you missed it last time :




We picked the single book Fox Favourites (5-10years) package and the theme for our September box was "Heritage Day" - meaning the activity book includes a few activities around the theme that month.

The activity book this month inc…

{Subscription Service Review & Reveal} Lingerie Letters September Pair

Hi guys! Happy Friday. How has your week been? I tried to play catch up with life this week - but having a week off in school holidays wasn't the best idea ever. But it was fun none the less. We watched some movies this week, celebrated my dad turning 60 and had so much fun playing Lego. 

Today I'm sharing my September Lingerie Letter with you. As always it's another gorgeous pair of lingerie this month - all springy and pretty. I have fallen head over heels for this subscription service - I love receiving my pretty pair each month. It's a little treat for me that I really enjoy.

A Little Life Update.. and a lesson in Gratitude..

Hi guys! Happy September ... although we are more than halfway through September by this rate. And Happy Friday too. (And Happy long weekend if you took off Monday to score an extra day)

I really do try to not completely disappear from blogging but with all the woman and child murders in South Africa in Woman's Month none the less - social media became a bit of a dark place for a lot of us. That combined with normal life stresses of dating, motherhood and work thrown into the mix - I had a super hard time in general. And anxiety added to the mix didn't help at all. But all doom and gloom aside ... blogging is something I do love doing ... and I miss when I do take a break from. 

So while a lot of hard stuff happened over the last few weeks - my bestie Siobhan reminded me that sometimes we have to look at the positive stuff in all the bad things. I'm so grateful for having such an amazing friend that reminds me yes ... life sucks a little now .. but it won't forever. She …

{Subscription Service Review} August Kids Book Club Book

Hi guys! Happy Friday. This week has been a nightmare - BUT I' glad it's weekend (Even though I do work on Saturdays). Today I'm ending my subscription review week with our Kids Book Club August unboxing to share what we got this month. 

As I mentioned there - Alex does read every night before bedtime - this is a strong rule we stick to every night. He loves reading and he often walks around with a fact book or Encyclopedia in his hand reading everyone facts about volcanoes, dinosaurs or the human body.

{Subscription Service Review} Lingerie Letters August Pair

Hi guys! Happy Tuesday! How were your weekend and Monday? Mine was pretty busy as always - we had to "doggy sit" my aunt's Yorkie and it felt like having a new baby in the house - our pour labrador was all tired and a little relieved when she left - she's an old dog and this little hyper doggie was a little too much for her.

I mentioned in my July Lingerie Letter review HERE that I want to share my Monthly Letter with you - that if you were curious to subscribe too - or was just curious what it was all about.

{Review} Mixa Anti-Dryness Body Cream Almond Milk & Addition and Subtraction Grouping Worksheets

Hi guys! Happy Friday! How has your week been? Mine has been super crazy busy at work.

With Winter *almost* over - it means summer clothes and if you are anything like me - you skipped one too many times applying body lotion this winter. Alex's skin has been drier than ever (because he reckoned once a week was more than enough ... bless his little heart. ) I also suffer from extremely dry knees and elbows so I always try and remember to moisturise but I even forgot most days this winter. 

When I was browsing Dischem last month to buy vitamins, I saw this Mix an Anti-Dryness Body Lotion. The price was pretty reasonable and it was a huge container. So I decided to pick one up to try and see how it goes. I have tried the body lotion before but it's waaaaayyyy to thin to offer any hydration for me sadly. 

We are about 3/4 through this container - and I can't tell you enough how much of a lifesaver this body cream has been. I use this on Alex face daily (and I have mentioned befor…
