I LOVE a good t-shirt – especially when they have funny South African sayings on them.  You can wear these anywhere, & pair them with jeans/shorts/skirts.  And when I saw a local business creating super-cute designs, including clothing for babies & children, I immediately popped them a message to see if I could feature them on my blog.

Tell me why your shirts & designs are so different to others:  Everything about Woelig makes me proud. The font, the cute afrikaans words and all the love that goes into it even the packaging. The words are unique, proudly south african.

What is your personal favourite:  Woelig & Plaasmeisie & Meisiemens.
It describes me the best. 😊

What have been some of the most popular items:  Karnallie, plaasjapie, meisiekind, kletskoningin, woelig, liefiekind, to name a few.

Why did you choose Afrikaans sayings:  I am originally from a small town called Riebeek Kasteel, grew up on a farm. #plaasmeisie.
Afrikaans has always been close to my heart. Afrikaans is a beautiful and powerful but also an easy language.
Afrikaans is one of the modern antique spoken languages in South Africa.
The language even has its own monument in Western Cape Province, South Africa.


Do you do custom designs:  Yes I do. Although I do have a list of set Afrikaans word to choose from, clients are more than welcome to give their own word of even nickname, as long as its Afrikaans.

How can people place an order with you:  They can sent me a Direct message on Facebook or Instagram. I am very responsive to messages😊


Why do you encourage people to support local:  One-of-a-Kind Products.
A small business owner is going to go the extra mile to make you happy.
Excellent, Personalized Customer Service.

They rely on regular as well as sporadic customers to not only help them earn a profit but also to spread the word to others about their company.
Because these small businesses need the support of local consumers,
you can expect to get friendly, personal customer service.


Quote you live by:
Passion + consistency = success

Anything else you want to add:  My absolute passion for Woelig shows in each individual package. ♥️♥️


How adorable are these?  I know which ones I already have my eye on.

Afrikaans is such a descriptive language, & these words embody their meaning – they make me smile every time I look at them.  Which one is your favourite?  And are you going to place your order for Christmas?


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…


Your name:  Natalie

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!
