Book club: The Brushies – Making Brushing Fun!

April 18, 2018
JustaMamma The Brushies book review

It’s been way too long since our last book club selection! We read so many books daily and I’m always scouting new titles for every phase of our girl’s lives. We try our best to tackle all those important milestones and “big parenting moments” with the help of a story – Remember our Potty Training selection and the collection of books we read Eliana and Lia in preparation for Ava? This month’s book of choice; The Brushies, is yet another helpful…

DISNEY BE AMAZING: BECAUSE GIRLS, YOU ARE ALREADY AMAZING!

April 13, 2018
Just A Mamma Disney Be Amazing

Disney Princesses… Don’t we all have a favourite? That one princess that blew you away with her strength, charm and beauty. Someone you could look up to and aspire to be. For me it was (and will always be) Princess Belle from Beauty and the Beast. The opening scene with her reading a book and dreaming of exploring the world described me to a tee – a little girl, stuck in a small town, always reading and plotting her way…

Little Rose Collection: A treasure for every mom

April 9, 2018
JustaMamma Kim Rose Little Rose Collection

Never has a painting stirred so many emotions within me. Appreciation, love, happiness… Even sadness over a moment past. Our Little Rose Collection piece is one of our most valuable possessions. A couple of weeks ago I received a surprise email from the amazingly talented Kim Rose. Wife, mama to William (an almost 4 year old) and the Cape Town artist behind Little Rose Collection. I couldn’t believe that Kim contacted me. I am a huge fan and have been…

Barbie Fashionistas: See your own beauty!

March 28, 2018
Just a Mamma Barbie

Let’s talk body image… Not just your own but your little ones’ too. I’m a mother of girls. The way I love and value myself is the way they will value and love themselves. It’s a hard truth that I have had to learn but thankfully the lesson came early and the solution could be handled in a fun manner. Thanks to some help from an old, childhood friend… It all started with a theme at school, “I am special”.…

#lovemoreZA : Raising kids that love

March 26, 2018
JustaMamma #LoveMoreZA campaign

 I have been part of some wonderful campaigns but never has one been so close to my heart as the #lovemoreZA movement. It all started with a WhatsApp and a play date… I’ve always admired Michelle, the mama maker and creative force behind Mayalief. We met many years ago at the Flair Baby Market and what started out as a customer relationship soon became a friendship. We share similar values and a passion for our families and mothering. Working together…

Dear Deer: Beauty while you sleep!

March 8, 2018
JustaMamma Dear Deer Satin Sleep Pillows

I’m no beauty blogger. In fact, my attempts at contouring and creating gorgeous hair styles are more suited for Halloween than a night out… I’m also all about keeping things “clean”, natural and cruelty free. Surgery and other cosmetic enhancement procedures? HELL NO, way too much of a wimp and although I wish I had the confidence to just “be okay with ageing gracefully”, I don’t! Being a  mom has the added bonus that most of the time, I have…

March 6, 2018
JustaMamma Baby and toddler Sleeping essential and bedtime routine

Getting a full night’s sleep and establishing a good bedtime routine for baby seems to be the holy grail of parenting… It’s probably one of the most asked (and most bragged about) baby milestones parents need to deal with. If you were blessed with a good sleeper you’re deemed a winner but if your little one prefers late nights, midnight milkshakes or break of dawn wake-up calls… The advice starts pilling up, experts need to be consulted and sleep training…
