🌸🌾Last night I spent five min making myself deodorant!💖 It was so simple and easy. All you need is equal parts of coconut oil, baking soda and arrow root powder. I then added essential oil of choice for sent 🌱( I went with lavender). I find it strange that it is so easy and CHEAP to make healthy, chemical free, cruelty free deodorant yet company’s are still using the traditional harmful path¿?¿ I wonder if it’s still cheaper or consumers trust products with chemicals more or both🤔🤔🤔 next time I do this I’m going to way the cost of each ingredient to figure out exactly how much I spent and how much I produced to get some answers. In the mean time let me know, do you trust your deodorant to be produced with chemicals or a more natural approach? And why? #diy #deodorant #chemicalfree #aluminumfreedeodorant #naturalproducts #hippylife #lifestyle #chemicalfree #crueltyfreedeodorant #crueltyfreeproducts #biodegradableproduction #biodegradable #mothernature #mommyblogger #mommydiy #modernmommyblog #healthy #betterlife #reducereuserecycle #veganlifestyle #earthfriendlyproducts #goodcompanies #mindbodysoul #lesswaste #productreview #healthybrands #naturallifestyle #naturelovers #lavender #naturefirst #illovemycat

July 04 2018 - was really a happy day for our family. That’s the day Ada was born. It was via caesarean. She was a bit short of weeks. But she passed all her test and no complications where found. So on the third day, we were allowed to go home.

The first week was a roller coaster. Sleepless nights and exhausting days. But for the first time, our house was filled with the cries and giggles of a baby.

Then on her first check up. We found out she has an infection and was suffering from jaundice. Because of this she had to be admitted for 10 days in the nursery.

I was crying. I saw how pained my little baby was when they put the dextrose in her hand. She was strip naked bec the need to light her up with blue light.

I came to the hospital with a baby and I went home without one.

I was crying every night.

But my baby was a fighter. She was healed after 10 days.
And now that nightmare was long gone.

We are happy to have her with us again. She is now turning 4 months and a very active and happy baby.

Thank God for her life and good health.

Prob. going to delete this later.... but I just wanted to share my #fridaymorning with y’all 🌻 Today I woke up refreshed and ready to take a special trip with baby Arizona, we saw so many beautiful birds today, including big Blue Jay! ( couldn’t get any pics or vid. Because I was completely soaking in the moment. 🔸
These are mostly clips of our squirrel friends 🐿, apparently they’re into banana chips. (Shrug) 🔸
🔸
On another note I’m going to be practicing my video editing since that was the one class I hated in #Filmschool. And as I was editing this , the app closed on me like twice!!!! I was hella frustrated and reminded me of why I hated the class. I remember I used to go on a cigarette break every time it happened, disgusting I know. But seriously the #filmindustry is filled with chain smokers.
🔸
🔸

So yea,
Fun Fact: I used to smoke, and luckily I don’t feel the need to anymore #yasss) (Flashback)
🔸
🔸

Anyway that is prob enough info of me for the day and you prob don’t care and that’s okay, I just like to write these days... P.S Hope everyone is kicking off the weekend in complete #harmony today. ☀️
Tummy time then VS Tummy time now 😅 happy 14 months my busy bee! My little explorer! 💐💕 #mythateho
PS: still waiting to hear you say mommy, specially cause you’ve been saying daddy forever now 🤷🏽‍♀️🙄 oh well

It took a while for me to grasp this concept👆🏿but I was SO glad when I did💡The first few months of being married,I was so focused on being the perfect wife (and mother).All my time and energy (besides work hours) were focused on solely that.But along the line I started to feel frustrated and disappointed.My weekends were spent doing housework and then waiting for my husband to come home.I started to realize I had tossed my social life aside and was beginning to lose myself.I had stopped making time for the things that made me happy outside of my marriage🙈. Eventually it dawned on me, and I quickly made a 180 degree turn.Its still a journey and finding that balance between putting your marriage first and prioritizing yourself is not always easy BUT so necessary for our own Happiness and Sanity!As the saying goes 'happy wife,happy life'💃🏽

Ich habe viele Fertigkeiten und Aufgaben- wie die meisten von uns. Aber die allerwichtigste ist:
Mutter zu sein. Das ist mit Abstand die schwierigste Aufgabe, die je auf mich zukam.
Es gibt so viele Ansätze, so viele Unsicherheiten, ob es richtig oder falsch ist... Und das noch unter einem riesigen Einfluss von Emotionen- meinen sowie denen der kleinen Menschen... Manchmal hätte ich es gerne einfacher aber ich denke, dass uns Gott das gibt, womit wir fertig werden können. Vielleicht deswegen habe ich 2 aktive Jungs und beide irgendwo in der Trotzphase. Ich blöde beschwere mich manchmal und gleich danach bin so unendlich dankbar. 🙏🏻😍 Und ich wäre gerne eine gute Mutter.
Ob ich es bin? Das werde ich erst in vielen Jahren sehen... oder auch nicht. Momentan fühle ich mich wie im Wirbelsturm. Das ist eben ein Job wie kein anderer. Stärkste Liebe und heftiger Sturm gleichzeitig. Ich wünsche Euch einen schönen Tag! #❤️

A busy day of running around doing errands and wiping snotty noses. In between work and motherhood, it always feels like there are too few hours. Slowed down and spent some time at #StJosephs Home for Chronically Ill Children. Took them some nappies for their kids as the facility goes through nearly 2000 nappies per day with all their patients. #modernmommyblog #giveback #Pampers #ad #happynappy www.stjosephshome.org.za You can help by buying more nappies for them online through their site.

It's the Day of the #AfricanChild and I had to share this image by @nixstowephotography. It's a day we need to recognise that we need to do a lot LOT better by our children on the continent and know that we are judged by how we treat the most vulnerable in our society. It's a day to reflect on how far we have come, but how much further we need to go to positively impact and improve the lives of #ourAfricanChildren #modernmommyblog #mothercity #motherhood #campsbayretreat #mommyblogger #breastfeeding #breastisbest #unicef #endviolence
It's a constant juggling act, being a working mom, but one I am so privileged to be able to manage ... I love what I do and I love being a mom.

There are so many incredible things that go with being on an island. A few you can see on this picture 😍 There are also a few things that make summer living less pleasant and they're also on this picture, but too small to see unless you are able to zoom in crazily 🙄 Mosquitoes!!! 😣 Managed to keep my little people (and I) itchy bump free by using my new ally.

The best feeling in the world is holding your little person in your arms. It gives meaning to everything you do, your existence makes sense and life becomes a lot more ... ag, it's just amazing. And I don't take it for granted, because it's not as easy as one might think to become a parent.
