Hello Spindel, nice to meet you

May 8, 2017


Since having two kids our laundry feels like it has literally tripled, even though the extra member of our family is only a tiny tot! In our house there is always laundry being washed, hung up and ironed, it’s like Groundhog Laundry Day. I don’t often do product reviews on appliances on my blog, but I was really interested in this particular machine called a Spindel which is a laundry spin dryer promising to remove excess moisture from laundry so that it dries faster and feels softer.

At first, when it arrived at my house I was a bit skeptical, I wasn’t sure that this device that looks a bit like R2-D2 was going to make any difference, but I’m happy to say that I was wrong! And before I continue with this post I’d like to make it clear that I have not been PAID to write a positive review about this device, I was given one BUT this post contains my honest opinion about it.

Desmond and The Tutus official Lazy Bones video

Desmond and The Tutus official Lazy Bones video -2

The official Desmond and The Tutus – Lazy Bones video is out and it’s a goodie. It’s full of references to all the old epic shows that used to be and still are on TV, so be prepared to watch it whilst randomly shouting out TV show names that you loved like Telly Fun Quiz, A-Team, Baywatch, K-TV and the list goes on.

I love this new song from Desmond and The Tutus, it’s one that’s a bit close to my heart because Shane wrote it when I was pregnant with Nina James and when I was so ill with morning sickness that I couldn’t leave the house so I watched a lot of TV… I also got to help them a bit with this video, which was really fun so it’s landed up being on of my favourites. I took a few behind the scene photos which I’ve included below for your perusal.

Well done to the whole team that worked on this, you guys did so well and thanks Propstars for the awesome props and location, you guys were amazing!

If you like the video watch it and share it so that we can spread the love.

Trying out a new theme…

October 21, 2014


Trying out a new theme on my blog. Shane sat with me last night and helped me swop over, but I’m feeling a bit strange about it. I think it’s because I have been staring at the same layout for the last 6 years and now it’s no longer there, like a familiar face when you come home after a long holiday. It’s not drastically different, but I feel like I’m almost cheating in a way, dramatic I know, but hey.

What do you guys think of it? Do you like it?

The other day I went to a lunch held by Art Logic that gave us a sneak peak at what to expect at the Sanlam Handmade Contemporary FoodWineDesign Fair this year. From what I can see from the small display they put together to entice us, there is going to be some really beautiful things to lust after and some really amazing food to dive face/hands first into, I really can’t wait.
