Read my LG washing machine Sapience Top Loader with Smart Inverter review

I received a silver LG washing machine Sapience Top Loader with Smart Inverter to review on the blog. I was too ashamed to take images for you in the laundry with the state that it was in, so I decided to do a laundry room makeover. Most people only own one or two washing machines throughout their lives. But I have to this point had FOUR! My first washing machine was a second hand front loader that I purchased from a friend for next to nothing and walked all over my flat, rattled so much that you could not hold a conversation – a machine with big personality but not much style. The second was a brand new 7kg top loader that was great to use, but I had to put it on sliders and slide it in and out from under my kitchen counter every time I wanted to…

Donuts, Sprinkles and a Unicorn cake party inspiration!

When the princess turned ONE I had the theme sorted – and threw her a birthday party filled with Donuts, Sprinkles and even a Unicorn cake. I booked Carike Ridout Photography, who also did my family photos after her birth for this special day and again LOVED the images that I received. [Tweet “Get some nice inspiration from this Donuts, Sprinkles and Unicorn birthday party”] Carla from Moi Decor Hire allowed me to use her gorgeous floral wall as back drop to the candy table and it really brought this whole theme together beautifully. A party is not a party without a lovilee candy table and off-course a totally pretty Unicorn cake! I set another table for the adult food and opted for finger foods. Then there was the Donut wall from Dope Donuts. I saw this wall at the launch of Elli-Nicole’s new studio in Parkhurst and immediately booked…

Introducing you to My Tiny Teepee custom kids teepees

My Tiny Teepee is owned and managed by Olivia and her incredible mamma – Mignonne. Their teepees are loved by each and every mommy and kid who has one and the princess was spoilt with a custom teepee of her own. We showed some previews of the teepee in our Scandi Christmas shoot and are now proudly Brand Ambassadors. What is a teepee? A Tipi or Teepee is a cone-shaped tent that were traditionally made by Native Americans who frequently moved from place to place. Tepees are made from long poles, and are covered with material. Nowadays us mommies love to use them as a Kids play tent, they are easy to assemble and to store away or transport. I think that I half drove Olivia crazy with my ideas, but I ended up with the prettiest teepee of them all! The golden touches to the wooden poles was such…
