A while ago I dreamed of one day opening a cafe. And at the front of the cafe I was going to put a HUGE 'No Prams Here' sticker. Still reading? Prams are annoying. Prams and huge and inconvenient. Prams can get in the way. And then of course I had Evie and quickly realised that a … Continue reading Mind if I park my pram here?
I have sensitive skin - so it was really a given that I would pass it onto my baby. Which my partner was none too impressed about considering the pricing of 'chemical free, organic, nitrate free, made from the milk of a free range mountain goat' shampoo and the likes, but if my princess has … Continue reading Babies with sensitive skin
I am definitely a little hippie believer of all things fate related. Last week I was given an awesome house plant from the girls at Pop Up Plants and thought it was just fate that they'd chosen it for me since I'd been wanting one for so long but had never got around to it. … Continue reading Natural Air Purifiers
Have you ever considered hiring a nanny? Chances are you most likely think of nannies as something that are more common in overseas countries, rich mansions and fantastic sit coms. I actually worked in Germany for two different families as an 'Au Pair' when I was younger, and the experience was interesting. I got my own … Continue reading Nannies & Au Pairs & Fairy Godmothers, oh my.
One of the final things to tick off our must have list before Bean is born was a rocker/bouncer. My friend swears by hers, and her 4 month old is usually laying in it when I go over and say hi. Not only is it comfortable for the baby, but it allows mummas (and dads) to … Continue reading Rock-a-by baby (and let me take a shower)
The first two trimesters, I personally couldn't wait to get to bed at nighttime, and rest my weary legs. They were holding a lot more weight you see! Sure, I still had to get up at least once a night to go to the toilet, and in the first trimester I would wake up hungry as … Continue reading Help! I need a maternity pillow.
As much as I don't follow fad diets, like Paleo and I Quit Sugar (because I'm sorry but I love vanilla soy milk and red velvet tim tams way too much thankyouverymuch), I came across Sarah Wilson's Paleo bread recipe, and it looks super tasty - Even for kids! With olives, ham and zucchini it … Continue reading An easy snack for parents AND kids .. Who would have thought?
I was snooping around my nursery last night, because a) I love it and b) I was looking for some inspiration on a new article to bring to you, when I found myself admiring the step ladder shelves we have set up and thought, why not write a piece about the local furniture maker who designed … Continue reading Little Ripper Furniture Co – A completely, bias piece.
I didn't think buying a pram for Bean was going to be as exhausting and confusing as looking for my latest car, but alas here I am researching the best on the market, and why. There is much debate about the 'best' pram out there at the moment, and it all obviously depends on what … Continue reading Babies first car.
Buying baby things is SO much fun. I didn't want to count my chickens, but I brought my first set of mittens, hats and body suits at about 8 weeks pregnant and popped them in the spare room. I even get joy from walking around the baby section at KMART of all places, because of … Continue reading The Lunar Oval Cot
