H E A L I N G: ⁣How’s everyone doing so far today?⁣⁣Revisiting one of my favourite books by @theijeoma and almost every quote is relatable in the middle of this revolution that’s happening. ⁣⁣“1. You must let the pain visit.⁣2. You must allow it teach you.⁣3. You must not allow it overstay.”⁣⁣— Ijeoma Umebinyuo, Questions for Ada⁣⁣Pain comes in different forms. Pain can be quiet. Pain can sneak up on you. Remember it’s okay to feel overwhelmed and also okay to log off and recuperate. ⁣⁣What’s happening is painful but it is NECESSARY. It’s allowed so many black people to express years and years of pent up pain, anger and frustration.⁣⁣But remember to allow yourself to heal ✊🏾🙏🏾 ⁣ #blacklivesstillmatter

P U L L  U P: Morning ig fam. Diversity is a strength, not a threat ✊🏻✊🏼✊🏽✊🏾✊🏿 It’s amazing the support we’ve seen for #BlackLivesMatter over the last few days but let’s keep the momentum going. This is just the beginning. We’re not going to dismantle in a week, racism that has been in-built for decades and it’s going to take more than posting black squares on the feed. Let’s keep calling out BS where we see it. Here for @jackieaina ‘s call for brands to #pulluporshutup 🙌🏾 PS: I shared in my stories my example of a brand that needs to do better when it comes to matching up their actions with their words...

Wondering what to gift the little ones in your life? Try one of these “toy-free” gift ideas!

By Posted on 0 Comments 127 views

It’s not easy finding a gift for a little one. Even more so if they’re not yours! Children can be so fickle with their favourite TV characters, clothes are always perceived as boring and they probably have so much already, you have to avoid the faux pas or getting them something they might already have. So, what can you do?
Well, how about gifting them something that isn’t a plastic toy from a jazzy TV ad? Unsure of where to start? Don’t worry, check out these 6 toy-free gift ideas!

An investment
It doesn’t sound like much fun. But an investment in their future will certainly be appreciated further down the line! A monetary investment, or a savings account, a little nest egg or something that increases in value over time – click here to find out more about investments – will certainly be a welcomed gift when they turn 21 and they’re ready to start their life as an adult.

A one-on-one outing
They say that the greatest gift you can give a child is your time. So, why not set a special date for you and your little one to spend the whole day together? Let them choose the activity – like swimming, skating, cycling, bowling – whatever the like! And plan the day around their choices. They’ll feel like the centre of your world and love the attention.

New bath stuff
It’s not just for us adults! Kids love bath time, so why not make it more fun? You could spoil them with some funky coloured bath bombs to make their bath fizz and colourful or add a bath solution that turns their bath into jelly! Then treat them to some gorgeous shampoo and even a lovely new bath towel. Ooh, lovely!

A charity gift
Many children are eager to give to others and help where they can. So, why not create a gift for them that makes them feel like they’re helping others? You could adopt a donkey, or an endangered animal (they’ll probably receive updates about the animal’s progress) or even sponsor a child their age in a foreign country. They’ll love their very own pen pal and feel good for being able to help them.

Dressing up clothes
We all dressed up in mum and dads clothes when we were little. So, why not help them develop their imaginative play? Find a box or an old trunk and fill it with old clothes from your wardrobe. Shirts and blouses, skirts, hats, old shoes, accessories – if you’re struggling for old clothes then head to a local charity shop and see what you can find. You’ll be amazed at what you’ll get!

Books
The gift of reading is a wonderful thing. And many parents want their children to read more. So, why not encourage it? You could get them a book token to spend so they can choose their own or buy a series of books for them to enjoy over time. Even better, read with them!
