butter pudding is so darling

I stumbled upon this local brand for little people, Butter Pudding, while admiring the Instagram account of Bailey from Kimmy & Bear. She dresses her twin girls (Florence and Anna) in the sweetest little outfits, and in one of their pics they were wearing little tasselled boots from Butter Pudding that caught my eye. I had to check this label out, and I’m so impressed. The African prints remind me of the little calico dresses my mum used to make for me when I was little. I just love that there are more and more local offerings in terms of fashion for little people. Go check Butter Pudding out!

fun at the V&A Waterfront this December

Cape Town is just overflowing with awesomeness in December. There is literally no end to the things going on. The V&A Waterfront is obviously a major hotspot and if you have friends down for the holidays or just want to get the kids out for the day, these are the things you can look forward to at this Capetonian landmark!

Christmas Light Shows: Thursday, 10 and Friday, 11 December

VA - 2015 Festive Season (16)_RESIZED

The first day of extended trading hours, Thursday 10 December, will be marked by a Christmas Light Show to dazzle Victoria Wharf shoppers with a beautiful display of coloured light patterns, all set to Christmas-themed music, carols and performances to instil traditional Christmas cheer.

Light Shows will be held twice daily on Thursday, 10 December and Friday, 11 December, at 8pm and 9pm. The Light Show is new to this year’s V&A December schedule and aims to delight young and old alike.

Meet Santa: Wednesday, 16 to Thursday, 24 December (excluding Thursday, 17 December)

VA - 2015 Festive Season (1)_RESIZED

Santa will fly in from the North Pole to meet with his legion of young followers at the Victoria Wharf Centre Court on Wednesday, 16 December, between 11am and 12.30pm, and later return at the same time each day from Friday, 18 December to Thursday, 24 December.

With a ho-ho-ho and a belly full of fun, Santa will personally receive children’s letters and hear directly whether they believe they have been naughty or nice this year.

Carols, choristers and Christmas bands

a portrait a month – january

So last year we embarked on the The 52 Project with our littles where we posted a portrait a week for 52 weeks (some of those weeks we skipped due to busyness and general life). This year we have decided to do The 12 Project (our own name) where we post a portrait of our littles once a month! A lot easier we think… and still fun…

Here’s the first of 12!

I Heart Your Outfit

Bailey on her first day of Grade R and her first time in a uniform. So precious.

Robert on his first day of playschool. He was such a champ, no tears. Can’t say the same for me!
