Disrupt Yourself, Or Be Disrupted - Nickey Verd - review

Two books on top of each other: Disrupt Yourself, Or Be Disrupted
Disrupt Yourself, Or Be Disrupted
Escape Conformity, Reinvent Your Thinking and Thrive
in an Era of Emerging Technologies and Economic Anxiety
Nickey Verd, the author of Disrupt Yourself, Or Be Disrupted, has sent me a digital copy of her book for an honest review.

I am so excited about the book. It should be in the hands of everybody. We are living in fast changing times where technological and digital disruption have changed the way we live and make our living. It's imperative that we understand that we can't be complacent about the way we work, and the way we earn our salaries. I am probably of the last who will be in my job for nearly 30 years.

Disney Toy Story 4 is a fun adventure - Giveaway

“Every ending is a new beginning.”
~Josh Cooley, Director, Toy Story 4

Is it possible to have a whole new adventure, and another Toy Story? Yes, Disney Toy Story 4 delivers yet again. I can't believe we saw the first Toy Story in 1995. My eldest was two at the time.

All the well-known characters, Woody, Buzz and the gang, are back, with some new additions that bring a delightful twist to the story-line. Forky is already a firm favourite, and we are sure he is here to stay. Miss Fine and I saw the preview last Thursday, and we loved it!

We had the pleasure of attending the launch of the Instax Mini LiPlay at the FUJIFILM Printlife Exhibition, at Sandton City Centre Court, last week. The instant gratification of an instant photo is a real buzz. We love it, and ever since we got the Instax Mini 9 at the Instax SQ6 Square launch last year, we have been absolutely in love with making extra memories and the fun that it brings.

Oh So Heavenly Pillow Mist and Body Spritzer - WIN

Oh So Heavenly Pillow Mist and Body Spritzer with dream tag
Oh So Heavenly fragrances to win on blog

I really love the Oh So Heavenly products. Two of them are part of the MomAgain40 Shweshwe goody bag give-away. They are affordable, great scented products which also carries the bunny logo. A few years back I got a goody package at a blogger meetup, and they have been on my monthly Clicks list for years now. They are definitely holiday survival products, but also as general go-to products every month. I also love to add them as extra birthday presents.

The two products included in the goody bag are the Oh So Heavenly Soothing Pillow Mist and the Bye-Bye Stress Body Spritzer.

A unicorn cable cover from Typo - because you need it!

Package with Typo Cable Cover
Typo Novelty Cable Cover

You cannot go into Typo and walk out without buying something something. I had to replace a cable for my previous phone. It was extremely expensive, and my phone was at the end of it's life already. This time I am making sure I don't have to! With a Typo cable cover that's super cool as well!

Hot Chocolate to die for! - Proudly SA

Craft Coffee Hot Chocolate bag in front of Takealot box
Hot Chocolate Craft Coffee from Takealot
It's really cold here. I know, I know! It's not as cold as anywhere else, but here on the south point of Africa we really struggle during the 3 months of winter. That's all we talk about! Our houses are not equipped for the chilly evenings, and we are COLD! That's why the simple things such as a hot chocolate drinks are real lifesavers. There's nothing NOTHING as soothing as a cup of hot chocolate just before bed, or in the mornings before school drop-off.

I was scrolling through Takealot searching for a Father Day's idea, when I saw this special deal. The Craft Coffee Hot Chocolate is still 45 ZAR (usually 59 ZAR), and I have included it in my MomAgain@40 Shweshwe goody bag give-away.

We love collecting Transformers BotBots - up for grabs



We are busy with the MomAgain@40 Shweshwe goody bag give-away. There are two Transformers BotBots up for grabs. It's a great gift and stocking filler for any "child" from 5 to 100. My hoarding nature just love this collectable craze! The Transformers BotBots Challenge is great fun!

I saw them on Takealot, and could not resist. Takealot can now be collected at a number of collection points for only R25. It was available for collection in two days.

Shweshwe spoil hamper

MomAgain@40 blog is nearing the 10-year mark! It feels like celebrating. I have been wonderfully blessed through the years by new skills, new experiences and wonderful IRL-friends. It has been my outlet, and a journal of 10 years of parenting. We love going back and reading about all the milestones, mishaps and celebrations through the years.

I have put together a goody bag of things I love at the moment. This is not sponsored at all! The give-away will run for a month, and one lucky South African reader will get the goodies featured on top.

Each day there will be a post about one of the goodies in the bag and why I love it so much!

Vampirina Party recipe - Chef Remy's bread bones and Pea dip

Vampirina Party
We got a Disney Vampirina party bag as a reminder of the new episodes of Vampirina on Disney Junior. Have you seen them yet? It's all about friendship, respect, tolerance and finding your place in the world.

The Vampirina Party bag came with a few party suggestions, and we decided to make Chef Remy's Bread Bones and Pea Dip as a party snack for guests on Saturday. It was also a great way to take a breather from the mid-year exams.

It's an easy recipe, and the kids will love helping make the bread bones. We did our own take on it, but we are posting the original recipe at the bottom.
