Win a beauty hamper for you and your bestie

I’m very excited to announce this bestie give-away, unfortunately it is only for my Nelson Mandela Bay readers because the main prizes are vouchers to be used at Walmer Park Shopping Centre.


As you know – through my various complaints – I’ve been going through a tough time lately. The thing that has kept me grounded is some amazing friends. Friends who I can lean on and vent to when adulting becomes a little hard.

Back to school DIY- Win a R500 Bostik school hamper

One of the sad realities of life (especially in this part of the world) is that school starts right after money ends, hehehe.
But seriously January is notorious for people trying to stretch the rand so I thought I’d share some tips to make back to school a little less stress inducing

and then Bostik was like, actually we will do you one better and give one of your readers a R500 hamper of school supplies (show-offs).

I’m really excited about the prize though, when Bostik launched their new look, complete with new mascot, Gary the Gecko, last year they send Aidy and I a few (a lots actually) of their goodies and we have been having a blast creating with it. You can see our projects on INSTAGRAM.  Their products are good quality and sturdy (sturdy is great with little boys) Now one lucky reader can win an even bigger hamper which allows you to tick off things of that blasted school list and craft at home 🙂

YEAH US!!! just follow the prompts below, this is an awesome prize so do not miss out!

Here are the top 5 school hacks I rounded up, Bostik South Africa actually has a bunch of crafts and DIYs on their site so do check it out
