What we’re wishing for this October
A must for city-slicking moms
Thule’s eagerly awaited four-wheel stroller, the Thule Sleek, is a new member of the Active with Kids family. It has been specially designed with practicality in mind and delivers outstanding manoeuvrability.
Thule recognises that a family’s needs grow along with baby, so add a bassinet, and the pram is able to perform a range of new functions; replace it with a car seat, and it changes once more. The Thule Sleek retails at R14 500.
To celebrate its launch we are giving one lucky reader a Yepp Nexxt Mini Bike Seat – the perfect accessory for your little one to enjoy the ride and the great outdoors with you.
WIN! To enter, email your contact details to email@example.com with “Yepp Bike Seat” in the subject line.
Just in time for summer
Situated in the Ceres Valley, local farmstead Loxtonia Farm has responded to South Africa’s demand for a genuine artisanal cider by introducing its first all-natural premium range to the local market this month.

Loxtonia Cider will retail at a recommended selling price of between R25 and R30 per 340ml bottle and is available in leading liquor stores nationwide. For more info, visit www.loxtonia.co.za.
Kiss and tell!
Clarins’ revolutionary new lip tint, Clarins Water Lip Stain, has a matte finish and sense of being barely-there. Lasting up to 300 kisses (as clinically tested on 22 volunteers!), this fab new product encompasses all of the well-known Clarins expertise when it comes to skincare and make-up.
The formula is rich in active plant-derived ingredients, culminating in new-generation lip make-up; an ultra-sensory, durable experience with a kiss-proof finish.
Lips almost seem daubed in ink, with colours varying from natural and soft to intense and concentrated. Retails from Mopani Pharmacy for R264,90.
