Fab Find – Dischem Baby Things Shampoo


I’ve wanted to share this product with you all for the longest time (just never took the photos).Perfect to add to your next shopping list,  even I use it from time to time because it’s so gentle and smells lovely.


I came across this product when we went through our financial fast aka when hubby got retrenched and we really had to tighten that budget belt.

This shampoo costs R 49,95 for a 1 litre bottle and it goes a long long way.In our household it takes about 5-6 months to finish so yup it’s R 100 a year for shampoo.

Yes its budget friendly , yes it’s a long lasting size but the best part are the ongoing compliments my boys get about how nice their hair smells.

Try it for yourself let me know what you think.

My Most Embarrassing Moment – DAY 28 – 30 Day Blogging Challenge


My Most Embarrassing Moment

I have embarrassing moments (dont we all?) but they those “you-just-had-to-be-there-moments”.

I will share with you an incident that happened years ago that still makes me laugh when I think of it.

My mom wanted to go all “chemical free” when cleaning.She had done her research and made her shopping list.A popular magazine had a easy recipe for a homemade cleaning spray so she took the magazine page with her and off she went.

She required a few things from the local Dischem that were on the list.

She marched into the store and began to find the  items she needed.

  • Bicarb Soda
  • White Vinager
  • Borax

But the last item she search from isle to isle eventually having to ask one of the people that worked there.

She was looking for Elbow Grease.

The lady said she had never seen it in store.Then a little crowd of ladies also started to say they recalled seeing it somewhere or had heard about this product “Elbow Grease”.Everyone was baffled….”elbow grease, elbow grease” they muttered until my mom finally remember what ELBOW GREASE was and burst out laughing.Everyone was in hysterics when they realised what Elbow Grease was.

I still chuckle a tad when I think of all these woman walking from isle to isle looking for Elbow Grease along side my mom trying to help her.

Yup – Elbow Grease not sold in stores lol!

The Doctor in our house – Cheap Pretend Play Dr’s Kit for Kids under $10 (ZAR 100.00)


Both my little boys we Neonates.Oddly enough the youngest is the one with the Dr Phobia’s.My little boy who has been poked and prodded doesn’t seem to mind them anymore.Thank goodness for Doc McStuffins (http://www.disney.co.za/disney-junior/brand/doc-mcstuffins.jsp) she has manged to soften the phobia a tad.

Last year November Little Man was admitted with a high fever and rash all over his body – this had both mom and baby in a hospital room for a full week. The 1st few days when the nurses came to do their routine checks ,he would scream ,dad and I came up with the perfect idea and it worked.The patient became the Doctor, we bought him a Toy Medical Kit ( http://www.amazon.com/Doctor-Role-Play-Dress-Up/dp/B007XF9LZU/ref=zg_bs_2522100011_75 )


So these days the Doctor in the house gives someone a check up at least once a day.This has increased since I did my 1st aid course and practiced on him.Being mom’s patient when I practice what I’ve been learning #enjoying1staid


We found a Dr’s kit when he was in the hospital and it was crazy expensive and a lot of the parts are no  longer working.

I found the gorgeous metal case from my local Checkers and kitted the case with real items bought at Dischem.

Whats in the case?

  • Stethoscope  – R 29.95 – Shocking isn’t it!
  • Digital Thermometer – R 19.95 – No Name Brand
  • Bandages  – One Roll – R 12.00   – I unrolled it and cut it in half
  • Syringe – R 3.00
  • three-cornered kerchief serves double duty as a “cravat bandage” – R 3.95
  • Cream – was a left over tube I kept in my handbag that was almost finished
  • Notebook to record diagnosis – Had at home
  • The Syringe pen with red liquid inside was a gift from Granny Augusta – she found it in a Hospital Gift Store


I put together this case in early June and its played with daily.It even gets take to nursery school.
