A bloggers’ meetup is not so much about the goodie bag (but that sure is nice too!) as it is about stepping out of your own space. A meetup offers you the opportunity to meet other bloggers, meet PR people and experience brands.


A blog is about you, an authentic voice that share your stories and experiences. It’s about paying attention to details when you take a photo and not just endorsing products for payment.

Tasting Whiskey

Whiskey of the Week prepared a tasting with Bain’s and explained pairing options.

I’m not really a whiskey drinker as I prefer spritzers and ciders – plus with fertility treatments I even cut my Mojitos, Piña Coladas and Cosmo’s.

Matsimela Home Spa

I discovered Matsimela a few years back when they were still in Deco Park near Northriding, Johannesburg. Then I went to Mowana Spa at the Indaba Hotel and there they were…the products the Spa uses and sells.

Prima Toys

We all know about LeapPad and Rummicup and probably Tsum Tsums, well that is all thanks to Prima Toys.

Whetever you are looking for a doll, family games or educational toys – Prima toys has them.

They will also be opening Disney stores (within another store/s) soon, just keep an eye on their website.

Prima Baby

A brand new division with a few very exciting products…

There is a range of Disney items for babies, soft cuddly toys (so cute), dummies, bottles and so much more.

They also have strollers, a 360 degree feeding chair, car seat, safety harnesses and carriers. (I will tell you more about the 360 degree feeding chair and car seat in another post, because these products really stood out from what I’ve seen in shops.)

Thank you

I also just want to say thank you to SA mom blogs for organising the event. The speakers were phenomenal.

Check out my next posts for more info on products and brands from the event.
