Mooi!

mooi
adjective – Afrikaans
Southern African slang meaning pleasing; nice


Are you much of a saver?  Are you good about keeping your extra change aside for a rainy day?  I know I am TERRIBLE at this, but this is also due to the fact that I hardly ever draw actual cash & then have to dig around in my change purse to tip the car guards & so on.  However with recent life events I realised the importance of saving a little & putting money aside for those times when I want to spoil myself.

When I was younger I had a bright pink piggy bank that had a special spot in my bedroom.  I would do extra chores around the house to get a silver coin, or would proudly add my pocket money into the container & then take it all out so I could count it up & see how close I was to treating myself to something I really wanted.  It helped teach me the value of money, & also that I didn’t have to always ask my mum for assistance.  She was a single mum & had enough on her plate without me nagging her for a new doll that I HAD to have…

When I came across this gorgeous small business I was so excited!  Do we truly remember the value of money?  And are we teaching these values to children, or do we simply spoil them rotten so when they are out in the real world they get a complete shock?  Sometimes we all need a small reminder to find the good & happiness in life, but still put aside the small change for “just in case”.  And these piggy banks will certainly encourage this, whilst forming beautiful decor in your house!

Oh My! How Rude!

If you are one of those fun-loving people, who sometimes has a bit of a potty-mouth, then you are definitely going to love this company!  Life is too short to be taken seriously & when I found “Oh My! How Rude!” I let out a great big laugh/snort & I immediately knew who I could order some of these goodies for.

Please note, if you are easily offended or can’t handle some cuss words, this may not be for you…

Business Name:  Oh My!  How Rude!36479486_1874686982838939_6026020531411615744_n

How did you come up with this name:  Initially the name of the business was “Potty-Mouth Moments”, & I wasn’t so sure about this as I didn’t know if people knew what a potty-mouth was.  I knew I wanted to do a swing back to the old days & I looked at “Oh How Rude!”, which evolved into “Oh My!  How Rude!” which is meant to be said in that shocked prim & proper voice when you see our products.

Social Media Handles:  Facebook, TwitterInstagram & Website

More about the products that we sell:  These are rude, cheeky sayings on items!  Currently we have t-shirts, mugs, pens, notebooks & greeting cards with a variety of sayings to suit different events & personalities.  Our Christmas range is coming out now too, which is mainly mugs & greeting cards.  Something to look forward to (in about 2 weeks) is our  water bottles, mugs & aprons that we are bringing in; & eventually we will be adding towels, pajamas & all sorts of other fun things.

Why do you love what you do:  I just like the hustle!  I love the idea of being busy, getting designs together, & actually running the  business-side of it is really interesting.  I do this & another business (TDW OnlineInstagram & Website) selling clothing too.  I enjoy dealing with printers, getting designs done & dealing with clients, as well as doing custom-made things.  It’s all very interesting!  I also knew I didn’t want to work for a boss so that is also really nice.  On the clothing side it is amazing dealing with designers, as well as factories & manufacturers & pattern-makers.  The whole process is extremely interesting.

How can people order from you:  People can whatsapp me on 066 269 7926; they can DM me through Facebook, Instagram or Twitter; or you can place your order directly through our website.

Some of my favourite products:  The mugs & the notebooks definitely – I’m a bit of a notebook freak so I do love these!  More designs are coming soon so there are currently only a few on our website at the moment, but keep an eye out for our new fun ideas.  My favourite mugs currently are “What The F*ck”, “Resting Bitch Face”, & I think “Calm Your Tits” is just awesome.  The Christmas ones are quite interesting – they are funny & will definitely make you have a laugh over these when you are drunk at Christmas.

Why are your goodies different to others:  I’m not actually sure that you can get these products in store where they are using these naughty words, as I don’t know if they are allowed.

Why do you think people enjoy these:  I’m not really sure!  I think it may be because of the shock-factor; people often want to say some of these things but don’t feel they can so they get away with it as a joke on a mug/card/pen & then it seems funny to more people.  It’s like a cute rude!

What is the quote you live by:  I don’t really have one that I live by, but I guess an important one is just to “keep going”.  Things push you down, or don’t work out as planned, life does what it does but you need to get up the next morning & just keep going.  Remember your long-term goal & keep working towards that!


Gosh these all make me laugh so much!  Aren’t you sick of getting the same sayings on all cards & memorabilia for friends & family?  Then you know it is time to branch out, step out of your comfort zone & be a little bit naughty.

Friends & family beware, Santa may be delivering some of these to your stocking!
