Loving right now

This! Oh my word - brilliance! Nestle has realized that a lot of South Africans make peppermint crisp tart so they made us a premix. But never mind that ! It tastes amazing just spread on a Marie biscuit. So tasty!

Plaits! I have never even been able to do the simplest French braid. Then A and I saw this book and we are loving trying out new styles. I am still very clumsy but we are getting there. (book also available in English as Braids .





















These lovely colouring in cards (also available in English as Creative expressions). Colour one in and use it as a birthday or just a simple greeting card. Colouring in with a purpose. And you save heaps of money on not buying cards. The whole pack cost under R90. The kids are loving them as I let them choose one for a friend and colour it.
A wonderful blog all about books - Read and seek. I first discovered Nihaad on Instagram and followed her there where she regularly posts about the books she reads (about 6 a month). But her blog is even better - go and have a look as she reviews her newest reads. A must read blog if you love books.

So anything new I should know about?

  3. We usually watch YouTube videos for plaits, but I am struggling. My eldest helps the little one most of the time and she is much more skilled😃

  5. Hubby and I actually wondered about the flavoured caramels and if they were worth it, so thanks for posting about it.
    I love both braids, but my arms get tired so easily if I try braiding my own.

  6. YES on the braids!!! I love plaits but can't do a decent one to save my life. Does the book make it fairly easy to follow? I'm all thumbs when it comes to hairstyling in general,so I would need "dummies" book. :)
