January Instagram RoundUp

It’s time for the first InstaRoundUp of 2018! If you were following my blog last year you will be familiar with these, but the idea is to give you some more personal insight into the Top 5 most liked pictures from my Instagram account. I used to do this fortnightly but for this year I plan to only do them at the end of every month.

Without further ado, let’s get this show on the road!

No. 5: I Don’t Diet!

My InstaRoundUp – ep. 1 October

I’m back with another instalment of my InstaRoundUp where I take the top 5 most liked pictures from my Instagram account and use them to provide an update on what’s been going on with me and us.

First thing to note is that it was my birthday on the 1st of October so most of these pictures relate to that. I am 36 years old. Thirty Six! I feel so old some days, and so unprepared for life the others. How am I in charge of a 6-year-old and a 4-year-old? When did that happen?  Continue reading “My InstaRoundUp – ep. 1 October”

Surprise Surprise! Hatchimals Surprise! and *Giveaway*

The wait is finally over!! It is officially #HatchimalDay!

Something huge happened for my little blog this week. I was asked to review and run a Giveaway for Just Fun Kidz for the brand new “Hatchimals Surprise” toy that is being launched worldwide on Friday 6 October.

My exact words were, “I’m going to be ‘Mom Of The Year’ and can now retire from blogging.”

Maybe I went a little overboard but just in case you were in any doubt, No, I have never been one of the ‘cool kids’. Continue reading “Surprise Surprise! Hatchimals Surprise! and *Giveaway*”

Muppie Lounge Giveaway

*Muppie Lounge Giveaway!*

If you’ve been following me on Twitter and Instagram over the last few weeks, you will see that I have been excited about the launch of Muppie Lounge, a brand of clothing designed by a mom, for moms.

What is Muppie Lounge?

Well, in my words, it’s a brand new exclusive clothing range, designed by a mom, for moms who are sick of seeing the same old stuff in the stores, or seeing all your friends wear the same thing, or not being able to find something that is appropriate. It’s a practical, age appropriate yet fun, fresh and fashionable range of clothing that is actually wearable!

Who is Muppie Lounge?

Marishka Mansill Muppie LoungeMeet the lovely Marishka Mansill. This creative, talented and passionate lady IS Muppie Lounge. By day … and night … she a wife and a mom to four, Yes! FOUR! kids between the ages of 8 and 3 years old, keeping herself busy doing the typical school run and taking care of her family and home. On the weekends she runs a local Sunday School for about 30 kids with the help of a friend; she runs a devotional blog on Facebook called Just Saying, and once a year she also co-organises and hosts an annual Christian ladies conference. Oh … and in her spare times she has designed, created, and made “Muppie Lounge”.  She is fearless in pursuit of her passions, and I am privileged to call her a friend.

This inspirational woman has poured herself into every single aspect of this new venture of hers. She drew all the pictures herself in charcoal; she designed the logo and tags herself; every item in the range has it’s own concept story which she wrote herself; she sourced the packaging and presentation of the products – which is special and exquisite; she is even the model for this first range! There isn’t one tiny part of this new and exciting brand of clothing that she hasn’t done herself – she is Muppie Lounge.

What is a Muppie?

Basically, a Muppie is a millennial yuppie. If that doesn’t explain it then check out this article that appeared in the Irish Times by Michelle Miller. She explains it far better than I can!

What makes Muppie Lounge unique?

Because it is. This whole range, and every range to come, will always be a limited edition; the entire brand is limited edition! There will only ever be a set number of each product created so if you don’t buy it whilst it’s in stock, you won’t get it. There won’t be any reprints.

Unique. Special. Limited.

I’m in love with this product and more importantly I believe it in.

Limited stock…. Each time…. No re-prints….. 

I’m so privileged to share a few of the first ever pictures showcasing some of the items in this exciting new fashion range for moms.

Ben- 10-Giveaway- Time!

Ben 10 *Giveaway!*

No, Ben 10 is not just for boys! Girls love Ben 10 too. My girls in fact. Let’s face it, if you are a parent, unless you are living under a rock or “the grid” you know who Ben 10 is. You may not know the details, but you know who Ben is.

But just in case … Ben 10 is a 10-year-old boy who discovered his signature Omnitrix device which helps him transform into a 10 different superheroes to fight off the baddies and save the world.

The streets are safe when Ben 10 is around!

Ben-10-figurine-collection

The Ben 10 people have released a huge new range of merchandise for all Ben 10 fans and the lovely people at Prima Toys very kindly sent us a Four Arms figurine and a Diamondhead Transform-n-Battle role play mask and glove.

They love them.

They were running around the house with their masks and ‘arms’ on, flicking their arms until the retractable claws struck out (See the video below to get a better idea!). To be honest, I was a little worried about their eyes, thank goodness for the mask! Clearly that is the difference between a ‘mom of girls’ and a ‘mom of boys’. Boy mom’s need nerves of steel! After I gave myself a little ‘talking to’ I relaxed and just let them be kids. There really isn’t any difference between boys and girls when it comes to having fun and playing with toys! They really just want to do the same thing – defeat the baddies and live their best life!

Note to self: LET THEM BE!!

Back to the toys … The new range includes all 10 Ben 10 figures (see what they did there?) as well as some of the baddies, 13 figurines in total.

You can check out the Basic Figures Commercial in this quick video:

The Transform-n-Battle range comes in Diamondhead and Heatblast. Each role play set includes a mask and a glove. *Fierce*

Ben-10-transform-and-battle-role-play-toy

Check it out on this quick YouTube video of the Diamondhead Transform-n-Battle  role play set and imagine two little girls running around doing this to each other … (be still my heart!):

Now that you are all pumped up and excited about these new toys, you need to enter my Giveaway. You could win:

  • 1 x any of the new Ben 10 figurines [RSP: R169.99]; AND
  • 1 x of either of the two new Transform ‘n’ Battle Roleplay sets [RSP: R299.99]
