My online shopping experience with Naartjie!

After a few minor hiccups – which were totally expected considering the excited frenzy which was created by the launching of Naartjie online shopping  – I finally got my shop on! The site is user friendly and easy to navigate, well laid out and uncomplicated – so simple that your kid could probably shop for themselves (hide your credit card). The FAQ section is very helpful and just about covered every possible question I could think of. The payment page, hosted by PayFast, was fast and efficient.

This beats going to the shops any day!

And of course, the winter range is to die for, or at least to cuddle for!! Here are a few items I picked up for my love-bugs, cute hey?








Can’t wait for my purchases to arrive! What are you waiting for? Get online, register and get shopping!!

Who wants some of this Naartjie?

So on the 15th March 2012, something big is going to happen. Get your credit card ready, finger to the trigger (or mouse in this case) and get ready to cyber-shop your kids into the oh-so-most-fabulous Naartjie gear.

If your life is anything like mine, shopping for kids clothing is something you do “by the way”. So when you are out buying onions and tomatoes and doing a quick grocery top up while Dad baby sits, you quickly slip into a store and “top up” on items they may (or may not) need. The days of leisurely shopping for hours, rail after rail, store after store came to a grinding halt, the day my kids were born. I don’t have the time or the patience to shop with my kids in tow, navigating my kid-filled trolley through narrow aisles, while they Liam whines about how tired they he is or they Hannah swipes clothing off racks and shoes off shelves. On the rare occasion that I actually have the day to myself and my kids are in the capable care of Zoleka or their Dad or with their cousins, the LAST thing I want to do is spend my day shopping. I reserve these days for sleeping in, vegging in front of the TV and for taking on a keen resemblence to a sloth. 

So IMAGINE my delight (I wanted to say glee but didn’t want to sound over-excited), when I heard that Naartjie would be launching their online shopping site on the 15th March 2012. Yes, that’s right, you can shop 24 hours a day, baby! That means without moving a muscle, except your index finger and possibly your thumb, you can do the kids Winter shopping (because I know you haven’t done it already), AND stock up on the necessities AND throw in the cute stuff… well because Naartjie stuff is just so cute, you can’t resist. Well I know I can’t. Please please, don’t let my husband read this; he will send my credit card through the shredder.

Best of all, if you register to shop before the 15th March, you stand in line for a mystery discount! Go check it out! Or follow them on Twitter here, for more updates.

Here’s a little something-something from the peeps over at Naartjie:

Now you can have your Naartjie and eat it too!

All dressed up and nowhere to go…

Kideos, last night I went to the opening of the new Naartjie store in Sandton City. It is beeeoootiful, as Naartjie stores are, of course. They have delicious trendsetting stuff for summer and I had to hold myself and my credit card back. I tried to be fair and split the budget (what budget?) equally down the line between the two of you.. but I have to admit I am too easily swayed by anything pink and frilly (even though I swore clear off pink when Hannah was born because that’s the only colour she wore)…so Liam, Hannah did score slightly bigger than you on this shop, my darling… which leads me to the point of today’s ramble..

Liam, as you grow older you may start to notice that Hannah has about double the closet space that you do, you may also notice that she has double the amount of shoes that you do. Don’t be offended because you have some super gorgeous gear too, just not in as high a volume as Hannah does. But let’s be honest… girls stuff is just way cuter than boys stuff and simply irresistible, and I just cannot walk away from a sparkly pink t-shirt with matching tights and a cute frilly cap to match. My obsession with little girls clothes probably stems from the fact that I think one day, Hannah is going to tell me that pink makes her puke and organza make her itch, and all she wants to wear is shorts and tees like her brother. So until such time, I want to dress her up in all things girly. Don’t get me wrong, I am not one of those moms who dress their little girl up like a Barbie Doll with lipgloss to match, I firmly believe that little people’s clothes should allow them to run, jump and roll around without getting in the way, they should be breathable, and durable, able to withstand many cycles in the washing machine.. but that’s why I love the things I picked up for Hannah at Naartjie last night.. they are all that, and still gorgeous and PINK!

Liam, your wardrobe is colourful, and I think this matches your personally perfectly. You look so handsome in bright colours, but last night at Naartjie I realised how absolutely gorgeous neutrals can be on you. I could totally see you in those beige checked shorts! So I got you lots of tops and bottoms in neutral colours, which we can mix and match with splashes of colour to make you the best dressed lad on the playground.

But you guys know that clothing is not a big deal in our house, you guys look adorable no matter what you wear. I won’t deny that I do enjoy sprucing you up from time to time but on the whole, having fun and being comfortable is paramount.

Can’t wait to see you rocking your Naartjie summer gear though! Xxx
