Gumtree: Holiday Gift Guides

It’s that time of the year, and the festive season is drawing closer. The Christmas trees with all the trimmings are slowly but surely popping up in all
Shopping malls, yummy festive treats are in stock and there is just an all around great mood in the air!
 But there is one thing that I do dread when it comes to this time of the year & its gift shopping. This might come easily to some people, but to me the stress of crowded malls,
long queues and not exactly knowing what I want is really overwhelming and daunting. I always find that this time of the year everyone is redecorating and spicing up there house and living space. Either by sticking on a new coat of paint or making minor adjustment such as new mirrors, lamps, rugs, wall decor or even garden furniture. But who said that a bit of a revamp have to cost a arm and leg, well with the Gumtree “Gifts for the Decorista” you can change up your interior without the hefty price tag.
For array of different lamp options click: here
I always believe that mirrors gives the illusions that your space is actually bigger than what it is.

Another awesome way to spice up your home is with wall decor you can find some great options :here

Competition Time: Baby Soft

So this is not usually the type of post that I get to write, but I think it actually a commodity that we use on an absolute daily basis and that makes it important OK! 
So you go to the toilet- reach for the toilet paper and wipe yourself clean. That sounds about right, doesn’t it? 

While using regular dry toilet paper does wipe what needs wiping for you to feel comfortable, it isn’t REALLY cleaning that well. By incorporating flush-able Baby Soft® Moist Toilet Tissue as part of your everyday bathroom routine, you can rest assured that you and your family are 100% clean.These innovative, flush-able, convenient and biodegradable toilet tissue wipes are lightly moistened with a pH-balanced formula which is suitable for sensitive skins. Baby Soft®Moist Toilet Tissue offers a fresh new standard of clean that is also soothing on your skin.

For that extra clean feeling, always use Baby Soft® Moist Toilet Tissue with your regular Baby Soft® dry toilet tissue. Get yours at all leading retailers for approximately R46.99 for a tub of 42 and refills are available for approximately R36.99.

Competition Time:

So this past weekend I went & watched the much anticipated #EFC45 at Grand West, Grand Arena as part of Media. 
The fight schedule was definitely something to look forward to and I must say the line up was looking really strong. A few of my favourite matches of the evening was definitely the Flyweight division which was Shana Powers VS Kirsty Davis, in the Welterweight division Bruno Mukulu VS Joe Cummins, Light Heavyweight Ruan Potts VS Tumelo Maphutha, & the main event of the evening the light Heavyweight division which was 
Gideon Drotschie VS Champion Dalcha.
After watching Shana Powers fight and Win, she's definitely one kick ass girl and has become one of the female fighters to seriously keep an eye out for! I was lucky enough to get the opportunity to ask Shana Powers a few questions, see below:
ME: Shana wow, what an great performance from you, what made you decide to get into this sport?
Shana's Response: I was studying personal training when I met Chef (*Norman Wessels, EFC light heavyweight champion and FFM co-owner) at a social event. He asked me to come and see if I would like to work at Fight Fit Militia. I went down to the gym one evening and that was it, I never left.
FFM being a mixed martial arts gym, I started learning about the sport. I fell in love and haven't stopped training.

ME: What's your favorite strike/submission to use in any fight?
Shana's Response:You saw one of them on Saturday. Love my spinning back fist, but in general I love stand up as well as Jits. I've won two of my fights via RNC

ME: What do you think separates you from every other fighter in your division?
Shana's Response: What separates me from any other fighter in my division is my coach and my team. Without them I wouldn't be the athlete I am today.

ME: After such a great performance at EFC45 what is the next Step for Shana Powers?
 Shana's Response: The next step is to win my next fight so hopefully I can be the first female to fight for the title and be the first EFC female champion! 
Shana Power defeated Kirsty Davis via TKO in 1:45 in round 1.
A few other great matches of the evening included England's Joe 'Silk' Cummins right on the money with his jab and went on to win the fight via unanimous decision. 
Then another great fight of the night was when Tumelo Maphutha goes on to win the biggest fight of his career via unanimous decision over the former heavyweight champion Ruan Potts. I managed to even score a picture with Tumelo after his match, he is definitely another fighter to keep your eye out on...
The main event was quite a fight with Gideon Drotschie VS Champion Dalcha, and I've never been this excited to watch a fight! Drotschie and Dalcha entered their bout as favourites, a prediction proved right in the first two action packed rounds. A deep cut to Drotschie's forehead sapped his will, however, and Dalcha pounced with a trademark blistering take down and savage ground and pound, prompting Drotschie to verbally submit in the fourth round.
 Champion Dalcha defeated Gideon Drotschie via verbal submission 1:10 in round 4.
EFC 46: Takes place at Carnival City, Johannesburg, on Saturday 12 November 2015. Tickets available at 
This is definitely and event not to be missed!

Gumtree: Live Simply

I have been speaking to my husband about taking up a sport & getting more active but as soon as I see prices of gym memberships, work out equipment and sports gear I tend to turn a blind eye and pretend like I didn’t see it to begin with. But in this day and age we are constantly being reminded of how important it is to get fit and be healthy. But is there a way to attain those fitness goals, get active and still have a handle on your wallet? Living Simply is the goal....
(Pinterest Image)
We always hear that being healthy & being active is an “expensive exercise”, no pun intended.  Like for instance I was absolutely set on cycling being the new thing that I was going to incorporate into my lifestyle, I had planned it out in my mind. Before or after work or on weekends, hubby and I would go and drive to beach side and cycle along the beach or even explore some mountain cycling trail. BAM!!!.... Our bubble blew to shreds when we went into a cycling store to see the actual prices that a decent bike went for? Down the drain went that dream.  Well that was until I saw that Gumtree actually has a sports pricing guide, where they categorize sporting items and the prices can be compared to the Average Retail Price & the Average Gumtree Price.

There's a wide a range of bikes and with the options available I would actually be able to find a bike that could fit into my price range! Also if you want some awesome cycling routes in and around Cape Town check out this link:

So with summer fast approaching how about taking up a new sport, if you ever decide on learning how to surf, you can then get some of these affordable gear at Gumtree some awesome lessons from:
I don't know about you, but whenever i'm at the beach and I see these awesome kites up in the sky and the trill of the person riding the wave I do tend to become rather green eyed. But I never knew that owning my own gear could actually be as easy as this? So if this is something that tickles your fancy get your gear from Gumtree and get some lessons from this cool place  
Mmmm now I can also be apart the cool kids...
