Reducing waste one dirty diaper at a time

By Angeliz Venter We started our diaper journey by purchasing a massive amount of cloth diapers intending to use cloth diapers full-time and when travelling, but we soon realized that this is a very unrealistic expectation for our family (even though a lot of other parents can successfully do it).

Give your breastmilk supply a little boost!

By Angeliz Venter One of my biggest fears was not being able to breastfeed, having a low supply or just giving up on our breastfeeding journey prematurely.

Laundry day just got easier

By Angeliz Venter While I was pregnant, everyone kept telling me statements similar to “You will never have time for yourself again” and I remember every time I heard that, I thought it can’t possibly be THAT bad, babies just eat and sleep right?

By Angeliz Venter I will proudly admit that I am a woman who absolutely love “take-aways” in any shape or form since a young age. Now that I am pregnant, my love for the greasy options increased even more and it is one of the few things I could stomach the during the first trimester. […]

Eliminate plastic from your hair care routine

By Angeliz Venter I will start this blog post on an honest note and say that I’ve never been brand loyal to a brand for hair care and would usually just buy what is on sale or what my mom brought and doesn’t want anymore. Ironically what started bothering me when I started my sustainability […]

Craving Salmon and sushi? Herbi Raw to the rescue!

By Angeliz Venter The one thing I hear the most from pregnant women is that they miss eating raw salmon and sushi. For me I started getting those cravings even before I fell pregnant, because I watched a documentary called Seaspiracy and then immediately decided to cut out fish and seafood completely, except if it […]
