hand holding up a clock that reads shopping time: things we love july 2022

The team here at BabyYumYum HQ has done all the hard work of finding the coolest products that you need to know about. Now all that’s left for you to do is click ‘add to cart’. You’re welcome! 😉

The Counter

We’ve only just discovered The Counter online store and we have one very important question: how do we click ‘add to cart’ on EVERYTHING?! Fancy some Bourbon & Vanilla Salted Caramel sauce, Birthday Cake cookies or Salted Macadamia & Rosemary brittle? You’ll find it all here – along with Oreo Salted Caramel & Chocolate brownies, fudge in loads of more-ish flavours (pssst… you can even buy a cool gift tag that says ‘I fudging love you‘), gift boxes and other baked goods. And if you’re looking for catering, personalised corporate or private gifting services, they’ll take care of all that, too! You can stock up on all life’s little necessities (because, let’s be honest, that’s what they are) here… The Counter.

Marisol handmade candles

We despise loadshedding as much as the next person but there are some positives to having to do everything by candlelight: like these cool candles from Marisol handmade candles. Created by sisters based in Stellenbosch, the only thing better than the candles themselves are the scents: think undertones of cucumber and aloe with a refreshing smell of sea-water and cedar, or rooibos with undertones of violet, hints of coconut, ylang and lemon. They smell good enough to eat (but, please, don’t)! From R100 for the yin-yang set and from R100 for a lovely curvy ladies candle. Check out the online store HERE.

The Profiler Diaries 2 (Penguin Random House SA)

The world seems to be true-crime obsessed at the moment – and we’re definitely here for it. And that’s why we can’t wait to get our hand on this book by Dr Gérard Labuschagne who was the head of the SAPS’s specialised Investigative Psychology Section, the only unit mandated to profile offenders. The Profiler Diaries 2 will give you fascinating (albeit disturbing) insight into the minds of murderers and a glimpse into a few bizarre crimes. A gripping read. Available at Exclusive Books.

Mareth Colleen maternity wear

We are always on the hunt for stylish maternity clothes and our most recent search led us to local fashion house Mareth Colleen. Although they don’t exclusively make maternity wear (you’ll want to take a peek at their stunning party dresses and daytime staples too) you’ll be spoilt for choice with simple silhouettes that are comfortable and accommodating of pregnant bellies in sizes from small to x-large. We love the Philly4Mom dress (from R1 299) and the April4Mom dress (from R690). Shop online by clicking HERE.
