PEACEFUL SLEEP ADVENTURE SERIES – PART FIVE

April 5, 2018

suikerbosrand-nature-reserve-6

My Peaceful Sleep Adventure Series is slowly coming to an end along with Summer which is so sad, but I have had the best time creating these posts and sharing them with you guys as well as getting to hang out doing cool stuff with my kids and Shane! Before it does come to an end though I’m going to be showing you a couple more awesome activities to do in and around Johannesburg all whilst under the protective force field created by Peaceful Sleep’s extensive Family Care Range.

If you are the type of family that likes being outside under the big beautiful sky surrounded by nature then this next post is just for you because it involves the very scenic and serene Suikerbosrand Nature Reserve and a morning of easy hiking, peanut butter sandwiches and speckled eggs.

COOL STUFF

PEACEFUL SLEEP ADVENTURE SERIES – PART FOUR

February 27, 2018

It’s that time of the month again, time for another round of my Peaceful Sleep Adventure Series where I look at bringing you guys cool and interesting things to do in and around Johannesburg this Summer all whilst under the protective force field created by Peaceful Sleep’s extensive Family Care Range. 

This time I wanted to do something that was not only fun for the whole family but also a bit out of the ordinary, something that I don’t think a lot of people have thought about doing, something that allows you to enjoy the outdoors the fresh air and the night sky all whilst sitting comfortably on your behind eating snacks and watching Alec Baldwin in a babies body making jokes and wearing sock suspenders like a boss (do people still wear these things?!).

Peaceful Sleep Adventure Series – Part Three

Peaceful-Sleep-Adventure-Series-Part-Three-2

It’s round three of my Peaceful Sleep Adventure Series which involves my family and me together with Peaceful Sleep going on a set of adventures whilst under the protective force field created by their extensive Family Care Range (you can check the whole lot out on their brand new site). We’re setting out to show you some cool kid-friendly places and things to do with your little ones during the next few months of Summer.

This specific post is really special to me because it’s an episode of Tastes Like Nice which is mine and Nina’s baking show and it takes place at Shane’s mom’s family holiday cottage in Riet River where Shane as well as his mom, has spent pretty much every December of their lives. We’re also using a recipe that comes from Nina’s Great Granny’s cookbook which was put together in 1979! We’re making her famous Riet River Rusks which were apparently (according to the recipe) very popular among army and seamen. Haha I love that!

PEACEFUL SLEEP ADVENTURE SERIES – PART two

PEACEFUL-SLEEP-ADVENTURE-SERIES-2

It’s round two of my Peaceful Sleep Adventure Series which involves my family and me together with Peaceful Sleep going on a set of adventures whilst under the protective force field created by their extensive Family Care Range (you can check the whole lot out on their brand new site). We’re setting out to show you some cool kid-friendly places and things to do around Joburg with your youngins during the next few months of Summer.

This time I’m going to tell you about a place that has been around for a while but has maybe fallen under everyone’s radar and that is Acrobranch! Shane and I took Nina there for an afternoon of zip-lining, bridge crossing, leopard crawling and more and she had the best time! At first, she was a bit hesitant as she had never done anything like this before but cut to less than 8 minutes later and she was on a mission to manoeuvre all the obstacles by herself! Before we started I gave her and Shane and I a little spritz of Peaceful Sleep spray and then I rubbed some Family Care Insect Repellent Stick on her ankles for good measure and I’d like to report that we came out with zero bites 🙂

Peaceful Sleep Adventure Series – Part one

November 17, 2017

Peaceful-Sleep-Adventure-Series

Hey guys, I’m really excited to start this new series on my blog in conjunction with Peaceful Sleep. My Durrant crew and I are going to be exploring a couple of different places and activities in and around Joburg this Summer and then showing you what we get up to! Finding kid-friendly places and things to do is not always the easiest so I’m really hoping to be able to recommend some awesome spots and hopefully give you some ideas for things to do during the next few months.

We all know that Summertime means mozzie time, so when I was approached by Peaceful Sleep to do a bit of exploring under their protective force field created by their extensive Family Care Range I was all in. The honest truth is I never knew Peaceful Sleep had a Family range which consists of room sprays, plug-ins, roll-ons and more (you can check the whole lot out on their brand new site) and that their products can be used every day on kids older than 6 months, which is amazing because in my house my kids are the ones that land up with the most bites!

Witklipfontein Eco Lodge

Witklipfontein-Eco-Lodge-3

Aaaaa man am I so happy to share this next post with you guys! One because the place I’m about to show you is epic on another level, I’m talking Grand Design scale and two it’s not only one of the most amazing houses I have ever stayed in, but it’s also completely off the grid and only an hour and a half away from Johannesburg.

My friend Leigh told me about Witklipfontein Eco Lodge a couple of weeks ago and when I went and had a look at their website I was blown away by the sheer beauty of it and after she came back and said that in real life it’s even better, I knew that we had to take a drive out to Vredefort (near Parys) for a couple of days to pretend wholeheartedly that this beauty of a house belonged to us.
