My Marvelous Mummy WishList…

I am a very lucky lady to have such wonderful things in my life…family, friends and a lovely home but sometimes a little treat won’t go a miss. 

I am writing this WishList as a reminder for me later…maybe when we have a little extra cash (that never happens) birthdays or special occasions. 

We all love a few lovely goodies and here are my top 10 treats I’d love…

My MarvelousMummy WishList:

  • Kitchen Aid Little pricey but wow woud I love one of these (in pink). I love to bake and owning a Kitchen Aid would be a dream. Have heard mixed reviews but they seem to be used by all the celebrity bakers and of course on GBBO. If you have one please let me know what u think? 
  •  Pandora Birthstone Earrings  These are so so pretty. I have the birthstone ring, so to have the earrings would be lovely. My birthstone is sapphire. Pandora is very popular and so so pretty! A must have…!! 
  • Bosch Cordless Jug Kettle Edit  I feel really old wanting to put this on my wish list…lol. The lovely people I babysit for have one of these kettles and they are fab. They work quickly and efficiently. They keep to different temperatures and come in white or black. I would much prefer the white one. They are pretty pricey but oh I do love it. If you have one let me know what you think? 
  • Orla Kiely Bags  A lovely bag and great quality. A friend of mine has this bag (different pattern/colour) and I do really like the styles and colours and patterns they come in. A pricey bag but I think it’s worth it. 
  •  Kindle Fire HDGreat product and fab for all the family. Ever since my obsession with ‘Fifty shades of grey’ I have really got into reading again. The fact you can use it for books games and apps, the kids will enjoy the benefits of it too. Anyone with a Kindle Fire HD please let me know ur pros and cons?! 
  •  Essie Nail Colour Collections Oh I am very much in love with Essie and their gorgeous colours. I had a pedi done and chose Essie’s Bungle Jungle …such a bright and beautiful colour. A must for any mani/pedi pro! 
  •  Cath Kidston  I love anything and everything to do with Cath Kidston …her floral patterns are so girly and pretty and just about goes with anything you wear. I love the messenger bags very much. The fabrics for kids are great too and I love the kitchen wear. 
  •  Havianas Just love a flip flop for those perfect summer days.  Havianas are very comfortable and come in such great style and colours. Anything bright I love for footwear. 
  •  Yankee Candles Now who doesn’t love a candle. I am obsessed with candles and if I could have a Yankee Candle  in ever room then I would. They all smell so good and look so pretty.
  •  Pandora Charm Bracelet   Again another lovely girlie piece from Pandora. You can collect some fab charms and they come in different designs. I love this and would love one very soon 😉 

Amazing Mummy Moments! 

When you become a mum you don’t really know what to expect or how to feel. 

You know you will love your child but you didn’t know they would complete you. Being a mum is tough but the most amazing, rewarding and satisfying feeling in the world. The love they show me (whether it be a little or a lot) is heart warming and breathtaking. A cuddle A kiss A smile…is all we need to show we care. 


  • Holding my babies for the first time. Feeling there soft skin against my own. Smelling them and feeling them close to me. The knowing that they are mine and I made them. Simply Saticfying.  (Caitlyn born Nov 2010)
  • Celebrating there birthdays, riding their bikes for the first time, accomplishing something for the first time. Seeing their happy and excited little faces beem with joy.  (Oscar recieving his first ever bike from his most amazing uncle in the world-summer 2012)
  • Oscar starting school back in 2012….seeing them in their uniform and amazing to see him going into school happy and excited (he has enjoyed school ever since)   
  • Oscar recieving awards at school and seeing he is trying his best at everything he does. My babies can do anything they put their mind too.  
  • Seeing my children look at me and need me so much when they are ill…knowing how much they rely on me to make them happy and well…(seeing them unwell isn’t amazing) but knowing that you are wanted and needed by the most important people in my life makes me fee wanted. 
  • Watching Caitlyn learn and play with her older brother…the love and joy they share with each other (fighting often too) is lovely to watch. 
  • Baking and cooking with the kids…they enjoy seeing their final result.  

I do enjoy such wonderful moments with my children and I am so happy to have this time with them and share fun days and happy moments. Love you Oscar and Caitlyn 💙❤️     

You Baby Me Mummy

Love and Loath…

20 of my LOVES and LOATHS
20 – I LOATH rude and obnoxious people. Life is so bloody short, why on earth do we need this. I can understand the ‘road rage’ we go through or the rude person pushing in the line, but being abusive is just not cool!!

19 – I LOVE ‘Walking Dead’ at the moment…Bloody grose or what!!

18 – I LOATH the fact my kids nag for food every 5 minutes…they are eating us out of house and home. Constant snacking BUT only healthy foods of course.

17 – I LOVE the laughs and giggles of the kids when they are playing so beautifully. Priceless!!

16 – I LOATH bloody house work and chores. Obviously its MY JOB as a full-time mum but it doesn’t mean I have to love it, day in day out – boring!!

15 – I LOVE the Backstreet Boys…have loved them since 1997 and even to this day!!

14 – I LOATH the early morning school run…counting down the days till half term holidays!!

13 – I LOVE driving…thank god I passed first time. If I could be a racing driver, I would!!

12 – I LOATH people who cancel plans at short notice. Better be a damn good reason LOL

11 – I LOVE treats and snacks but damn girl I need to stop that shit! As we speak, my belly is resting on the computer, not a good look!!

10 – I LOATH diets and healthy food that tastes shit. Why can’t there be sweets and treats that are good for u and taste yummy too. Oh wait, check out Pinterest and there are great healthy snacks to bake at home!!

9 – I LOVE days out with family and friends…Merlin passes and annual memberships are fab to have and are worth the money!!

8 – I LOATH homework time at the moment…it sure isn’t fun arguing with a 7-year-old!!

4 – I LOATH being so far away from my family in South Africa and Africa itself. I feel part of me is missing terribly!!

3 – I LOVE my family and my mama very much. They mean the world to me and they are always on my mind whether they are near or far!!

2 – I LOATH that my children are growing up far to quickly. Those early days felt like a life time away and if they are growing quickly, that must mean only one thing…i’m ageing too LOL!!

1 – I LOVE my husband very much. We have been through our fair share of challenges over the last 12 years but keep strong everyday!!
