Our June wishlist…
Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate
We all know to keep up the hydration during summer, but come winter we sometimes let it slip! We’ve found one of the most delicious ways to stay hydrated is with Vita Coco 100% Natural Coconut Water. Based on just a single ingredient – fresh, natural coconut water from young, green coconuts – this is more than just a great-tasting drink! It also helps lower blood pressure, decrease colds and flu and help with skin care. As if that wasn’t enough – it even helps keep the winter kilos at bay! Yay! Available at Woolworths, Pick n Pay and Spar from R24.95 for the 330ml and R54.95 for 1 litre. Details: www.vitacoco.com/za
Make a statement with this fabulous, rich and bold backpack from Rubi at Cotton On. Available in a variety of awesome colours, you will be the envy of many with your Rubi Forbes Backpack, R449.
Chase the flu away!
Almost everyone has been given a ‘hot toddy’ to help alleviate colds and flu at some point in their lives… Now you can choose from an entire Hot Toddy range, which has been developed from remedies passed down through generations! The Hot Toddy range includes seven products, all of which are free of aspirin and caffeine, and can be used to compliment other treatments, or as an alternative for the whole family! Available at Dis-Chem, Clicks and leading pharmacies nationwide.
Win a hamper which includes the entire Hot Toddy range (Soothing Hot Drink sachets, Soothing Cough lozenges, Hot Toddy tea, Fast Recovery capsules and Cold & Flu Relief effervescents and a yummy syrup and lollies for the kids), valued at R500. To enter click here!
For the littlies…
Keep your busy little one entertained and chase away the winter blues with this charming push and play turtle – a baby walker and baby activity centre in one. The toy introduces shapes and colours for babies and toddlers and features a built-in shape sorter. It also features a locking mechanism to keep the walker from going too fast in walker mode. Ideal for ages nine months and older. Perfect for those cold, indoor days! Available at toy stores, R699.99.
From funky sneakers to pretty pumps and trendy boots – we’re loving this month’s Rubi range of shoes, available at Cotton On stores. Rubi Sneakers, from R599; Rubi Kennedy Pump, R699; Rubi Tanner Gusset Boot, R599.
Do it for dad
If you’re looking for an awesome, fun or funky gift for dad this Father’s Day then we suggest you pop into your closest Typo store. From crazy pen holders to fun desktop soccer, hilarious cards and memorable mugs . . . we’re pretty sure there is something for every dad! Typo Pen Holder, R149.99.
Fabulous winter fashion
We love the warm colours and cozy fabrics that the cooler months bring with them. Forever New’s beautiful range is romantic and sensible, with fine closet staples that will certainly last for more than one season. The soft autumn palette of blush, camel, ochre and saffron is balanced with deep shades of ink, navy and grey. Available at Forever New, selected Edgars stores, and online. Forever New Jess Coast, R1500.
Tradition … with a bit of an edge!
We rather fancy the new, revamped Jason’s Creek label…and we rather fancy the wine, too! The recently released Jason’s Creek 2015, which winemaker, Ivy du Toit, describes as being smooth and delightfully uncomplicated, is made from a blend of Pinotage, Petit Verdot and tannat, and has lovely flavours of raspberry, cherry and hints of spice. While it’s ready to drink now, the wine will reach its full potential if left for a further eight to 12 years. Enjoy it on a chilly day with lamb, pork and mushroom-based dishes. Available at selected bottle stores, R70. Details: www.jasonshill.co.za.
