This is your Volvo Britax Max-Way car seat winner!

volvo-review-and-giveaway-winner

A couple weeks ago, I reviewed the Volvo Britax Max-Way car seat, and I  had one to give away to a lucky winner. I actually felt bad about the competition – when your comments started pouring in telling me about your little ones, I wanted each and every one of you to win. I really wish we had many more for you to win, but there are giveaways currently running, so if you didn’t win, please head over to the #CarseatFullstop campaign page and check out the other giveaways and info. You might save a life by sharing, and you might win a car seat by getting involved.

Meanwhile, a quick funny story before I tell you who won. Thanks so the drama that is our life, Dean and I thought that we were going to be changing vehicles recently, so we took the Volvo car seat out of our car. The next morning, due to the complexity of installing the thing, we decided to throw Harley’s infant seat back in the car instead. She is still within the weight limit for it, and she always loved it so we figured it wouldn’t be an issue. She now is one of those crying in the car babies, which she’s never been. I guess once she traveled in First Class, she didn’t want to go back to Economy. Continue Reading

Volvo Britax Max-Way car seat review and GIVEAWAY

Volvo review and giveaway

I have already told you how important it is for kids under four to face backwards. It’s one of the big things I learned since joining the #CarseatFullstop campaign. Carseats were always important to me – it was a no brainer that Harley had to be in a car seat from the moment we brought her home from the hospital. But as she has gotten older, I’ve wondered which seat would be best when she outgrew her awesome chair. Once I learned that she needed to keep facing the back of the car, I wondered which model would be best. Well, I didn’t need to wonder much longer – Volvo were kind enough to send me one of their toddler seats for review.

They weren’t just kind to me, though. One lucky reader will be able to win a Volvo seat of their own. And it doesn’t have to be a toddler seat, either. Read my review, enter to win at the end and you could win a car seat for your infant, toddler (up to 25kgs) or a booster seat for your not-quite-adult-sized kid. But why should you be excited? Well, this is a top-of-the-range seat! Continue Reading

I love putting Harley in funky clothes, and always get a fun response when I do. From her little goth onesie to her alternative bibs, she looks adorable and people ask me where I get such fun stuff for her. Some of my favorite items come from Kid Got Style, which is why I was so happy to run a giveaway for them. What could be better than sharing the cool kid’s clothes with you awesome people?

Up for grabs was a hamper worth over R300 with a selection of bibs and a cool looking onesie. Thank you so much to everyone who entered, and we can now announce a winner! Continue Reading

Why you want to win this Kid Got Style giveaway

KGS giveaway

I was incredibly happy when I found out that I was having a little girl. I would have been just as happy to have a little boy. But once I knew Harley was coming, I worried about how I’d raise her to be a strong woman, not bogged down with gender stereotypes. One of the things I wanted to avoid was dressing her in pink. I don’t like pink myself, and I hate that girls are expected to wear it. I wanted Harley to wear awesomely funky clothes, things that I think she’d look back on and think were cool.

When I first started looking for such funky clothes, I really struggled. Everything seemed so cliched – such typical baby clothes all in pastels. I wanted unique designs that were still made on high quality clothes. So when I found Kid Got Style, I fell in love. My wallet begs for mercy every time I visit the site because I simply find far too many things that I can’t live without. Bibs and onesies – the site has become my go-to place for baby shower gifts, and of course I have to buy some things for Harley when I shop as well. Now, a lucky winner is going to get over R300 worth of stuff in this giveaway! Continue Reading

Did you win the Schnooky Pie giveaway?

Schnooky Pie giveaway winner

I love giveaways. It’s just so great to be able to tell you all about something I like, and then for one of you to win. Cool things are great; winning those things for free is even better.

Last week, I told you about the awesome onesie I got from Schnooky Pie. Not only is the onesie really unique and fun, Schnooky Pie itself is a rad local company with a commitment to quality clothing that you won’t find anywhere else. They have a bunch of cool clothes and are helping employ local workers to make the handmade items, so it’s a win all around. Speaking of winning, it’s time to announce the winner of the giveaway!
