    Ring Video Doorbell Review

    Lets face it.  Most of us mums have been here – the kid has FINALLY gone down for a nap, with only 30 minutes of protesting this time.  You’ve put the washing on, and have sat down to enjoy that cuppa before miss sunshine wakes, when the doorbell goes. Is it the courier with the much anticipated parcel for you, or is it the nosy neighbour down the street wanting a chat and who seems to sense that you’re behind the door checking who it is? Unfortunately for me, my kids don’t nap these days, so it’s usually me going to answer the door with a whinging tag along toddler…

  • FunScreen Sunscreen - Ready for the Sun

    FunScreen Sunscreen Review

    ​Growing up in South Africa us kids never really bothered about sunscreen for a few reasons.  One, we were already brown, so going from light brown to darker brown in summer wasn’t really an issue lol. Two, any sunscreen we might have had would have been sweated off faster than you could apply it. And three, most importantly, the sun didn’t burn you like it does in New Zealand. With New Zealand having some of the harshest sun conditions, and the highest rate of melanomas, sunscreen really is a must though, so I definitely wouldn’t encourage doing the same as I did 🙂  It is for these reasons that I…

    Book Review : Every Dark Corner – Karen Rose

    Every Dark Corner Synopsis: When FBI Special Agent Griffin ‘Decker’ Davenport wakes from a coma, he immediately thinks of two things: first, the ring of human traffickers he’s spent the past three years undercover to bring down was just the tip of the iceberg; second, the brown eyes he sees upon waking belong to a woman he trusts to help him finish the job he started. FBI Special Agent Kate Coppola’s mission is to stop the growing menace of domestic human trafficking, starting with the customers and suppliers of the now-broken Cincinnati trafficking ring. Decker’s new revelation is her worst nightmare – one of the traffickers’ customers is acquiring teens…

    World On Our Plate Review

    ​If you’ve been on my Facebook or Instagram lately, you’ll know something major has happened in the imnotsupermum household in the last few weeks. No I’m not pregnant (hell no! Lol), my big boy has turned 5 and has started school! Waaaa! Like a lot of mums I know, I am not a morning person. So add making lunches and homework to the already long list of things to do before leaving home at 8.15AM, and I’m a blabbering mess at the end of the day.  Unfortunately, dinner can’t be magically pulled out of the fridge/freezer (I’ve tried) and takeaways every night just seemed a bit ridiculous and not entirely…

  • June Book Favourites

    Favourite Books for June 2016

    ​Books have always been a big part of my kids lives, so it’s only natural that book reviews become part of the imnotsupermum blog 🙂 Almost every night, both kids get a bedtime book read to them by DH. For the moment, it’s one book for both of them with each picking the book every alternate night (unless they’re being ultra disagreeable then DH or I pick), which means we should get through around 25 books at bedtime a month! It would be 25 different books but as anyone with kids knows it’s usually 1 book 25 times! Sigh. So for the first reviews for our bedtime book series, these…

    Adventures with Daddy – Book Review

    ​Adventures with Daddy is a cute book about a young boy and the adventures he goes on with daddy. The book is told from the point of view of the child, which makes for quite funny reading for both kids and parents 🙂 It’s a good book to discuss with the kids what’s going on, as the illustrations were easy for them to understand. Adventures with Daddy is an easy read for both my toddler and preschooler, and is just the right length to hold the toddlers attention 🙂  Both DH and I love the end of the book, and it rightly depicts what happens in our household after a…
