Mari’s adding some sweetness to the Christmas competition

Have you heard of Mari’s Fudge and Brittle?  It’s a sweets company started in the Western Cape and thanks to agents like Marlese Strydom, it is now available nationwide.

Marlese was one of the vendors at the KFC Herald Country Fair.   this is where I sampled some of the treats and OMW!!! it was ridiculously good! (yes I know I am not supposed to have sugar, so I reluctantly shared) She has agreed to add my all time favourite Mari’s treat to the competition bag and the winner is going to love me for it.

And then Japsnoet joined in as a stocking filler

Excited to introduce you guys to Japsnoet today!!! They are the latest company to add to my stocking filler competition and I am thrilled

Geek world joins our Christmas giveaway

I am so excited to announce that Geek World South Africa has joined in on our Christmas giveaway. They took part last year   and did not hesitate to make my Oprah meets Santa dreams come true again this year.

They are giving away this amazing Breaking Bad set which consists of a Top Trumps game  and a Funko Pop Jesse Pinkman  (they added a little something extra but we will show that off at a later stage)   The prize is worth R370 which is insane because I expressly asked for a stocking filler but these people don’t do anything in half measures

My Christmas competition begins…

Don’t roll your eyes at me just yet, it might seem early for a Christmas competition but hear me out…

I have teamed up with a few South African brands to bring you a really fun competition. All the brands are things I really like so I’m actually channeling Oprah and giving you “my favourite things” of sorts. Because I really like the brands and the products I want to tell you all about them individually and that takes time…time we don’t have as Christmas is like ten weeks away.

Basically I have a gift bag at home…every Tuesday and Thursday I will introduce you to a great stocking stuffer idea and then stuff a gift from that brand into the bag, so at the end of my competition run. (First week of December) I will announce a winner who will have a bag full of treats delivered to their home.  I did something similar last year, see here.

A reward for the suckier side of pregnancy

It may be quite a while since I was last pregnant so the memories might be foggy…but from what I can remember not every day was as magical as the ads in baby mags would have you believe.

With this in mind I have a great prize for two new or expecting moms…because sometimes you need a little something for you. Can you even remember the last time someone asked you how YOU were without meaning the baby/pregnancy.
