*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.

To All The Queens  

On Saturday afternoon we were called up to Jo’burg at short notice and while my husband was busy I had a few hours to kill. We decided to settle in at one of our favorite family restaurant chains. My husband could leave us there with peace of mind, the girls get to play in a huge outside play area supervised by lots of lovely child minders and make their own pizzas at the ‘pizza bar’ – a glorious concept if ever there was one!  I got to sit and partake in one of my favorite pastimes … drinking wine while people watching!  Continue reading “To All The Queens  ”

My opinion on Trump – As a mom of two little girls.

Forgive me – No featured image! What would I put up? 

This week has seen the media blow-up over Trump ‘the pig”s most incorrigible behaviour and language about women, as well as his confession about sexual assault! 

My personal take on this is “I am terrified”! 

Terrified that my daughters will grow up in a political society that is attempting to ‘sweep this under the carpet’ as they are. 

He should be denounced by ALL the Republicans, and Humans of  this planet! 

The twitter campaign started by Canadian Kelly Oxford has gone viral. 

Women all over the world tweeting their first sexual assault experience is painful to me. Awful. Terrifying. As oa human, and as a mom of two little girls. 

If the stats are right, my eldest has less than 6 years to go before she is victimized! What???!!! 

From what I  read most people experienced their first assault in their very early teens, some even earlier – 10, 12!! This is terrifying for a mother of two little girls! 

How do I keep my little girls safe from this? What can I do? Is there anything? Should I arm them? Teach them self-defense? Discourage them from being too pretty, too beautiful, too vulnerable, too needy?

I don’t want to scare them off from the male sex forever. There are so many good men out there. Their father. Their grandfathers? How do I teach the the difference?

 The behaviour exhibited by trump is NOT OK! Neither is the behaviour by his supporters or those covering it up, sweeping it under the carpet or legitimizing it, okay! 

I watched a video on facebook today – “what if Trump were black?” Now, for the record, I am totally against racial distinction, but this guy had a point! Please watch it! Sexual assault is not okay! 

Van Jones 

What Trump did is Wrong! Wrong! Wrong!

I don’t even care to find out what his stand is on economic or political points. I’m not American. I don’t really care. Do your own hole. Africans have their own sh*t to deal with.

But, I am a woman, a mother of humans, and a human myself. He and his ilk, his kind, and his supporters are not! 

He does not deserve to be president of the USA! Not as president of anything!!!! That’s excluding his racist and ignoramous views on everything else … the world will survive without Trump as leader of America. 

But, if he is elected – then a person like this will become a role-model! Then I truly will pray for the safety of all women and humans less capable of standing up for themselves! 

Sadly, it’s not just in America, and it’s not just Trump! 

Don’t even get me started on the UK’s coverup of sexual exploitation of children in care homes across the U.K. Why do all the investigators and lawyers keep quitting the enquiry? Disgraceful! 

And what about Jacob Zuma? Rape? Bathing after exposure to HIV? Seriously? He’s still in POWER?! Really!!! 

I pray my girls are never victims! I pray for them. But I also pray for their attackers, because hell will be a heaven for them compared to what I and their father will unleash on anyone who victimizes my children! 

This is not a threat. It’s a warning! It will happen!

When will the domination and victimization of those deemed to be inferior to ‘you’ end? When? How do we break the cycle?
