The scramble has clearly set in to get ready for the 2015 school year. Inland schools have forgotten about the festive season, and the rest of us at the coast struggle to get our head around trading the traffic around Camps Bay beach for the highways back to school! Going back to school also comes at the tightest financial month for this country, so luckily, not only has our country’s largest supermarket group, Shoprite Checkers, committed itself to being the [Read More…]

REVIEW: No Touch Thermometry From Braun
Fevers, and the worries attached to them, become part of our homes as soon as we have a baby. It’s the thing that indicates to us that something yukky is brewing in our little person, and before we’ve even held him/her, we’ve got the nursery stocked with a thermometer. It might have been a baby shower gift from another new mom, or even one of those old school, under-the-arm/tongue jobbies, that frankly aren’t highly accurate, but your granny used it [Read More…]

For some, wearing a dress this December will not only be a matter of what one happens to feel like wearing that day, or a fashion choice, but a potentially life-saving choice.

Earlier in the week, My iStore challenged me to close my laptop (read: lock-down of my lifeline!) and put down my cellphone for social media, and to try out their brand new iPad Air 2 for a whole week (EEK!), in a challenge to prove that it’s the ultimate “Everything in One” device.
