2021, what a whirlwind of a year. This was my worst year and best year all rolled into one. It was a year of extreme highs and extreme lows. I (finally) got married, my G-d child Gia was born, and I put down the deposit for a new house. I also left a work environment that no longer served me, I cut off a toxic frenemy and my husband moved to Klerksdorp on a year-long contract. One thing is for certain, wrapping up 2021 will be a bittersweet experience. I am so happy to welcome in the New Year and this is how I’ll be doing it with The Crazy Store.
Dyllan has Christmas off, but he is, unfortunately, working this New Year. So we are having a big Christmas lunch together (even though I’m Jewish) and then I’m having a chilled New Year’s braai at home with my sister, her hubby, and baby G.
These are some fun supplies that I’ll be picking up from The Crazy Store to help set the scene:
Intex Pool Baby Sunset Glow, 114 x 25cm, R199.99 , SKU 496-057412
While my sister and I will be living it up, enjoying glittering virgin cocktails by the pool, my sisters’ hubby will be braaiing and baby G will be spending time in her inflatable pool.
Intex Lounger Mermaid Tail, 178 x 71cm, R299.99, SKU 495-058788
You’ll find my sister and me, in the pool floating on this mermaid fishtail/rainbow popsicle in the pool. How gorgeous are these floaties?
50 Battery Operated Flashing Lights, 5m (R79.99) SKU 067-003204
I’ll definitely be creating a vibe this new years’ with some strategically placed lights in the trees, and in our dinner table’s centerpiece.
Citronella Candle Tin, 250g, R89.99, SKU 140-006056
We all know that Summer evenings spent poolside, leave us exposed to mozzies. Don’t let the itch take you by surprise, get rid of unwanted insects and mosquitoes with an aromatic Citronella Candle Tin — easy on the nose, tough on the bugs.
Bottle Stoppers and Markers (R89.99) SKU 206-000320
I’m planning on getting a few bottle stoppers and markers ahead of New Year – just in case, we leave a bottle of champers open welcoming in the New Year. Then we can still enjoy some fresh bubbles in our morning mimosas.
Letter Mug L, 400ml, R29.99 SKU 018-000300-L
I’ve invited my sister, her hubby, and baby G to sleepover on New Year’s. I plan to leave personalised mugs in the kitchen, with an already set up coffee station and some peanut butter rusks. If they wake up before me, they can make a cuppa joe and gently wake up and welcome in the New Year in the garden. They can then take home the mugs as a memorial of the New Year’s spent at Tams.
