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…

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…

A Room To Share: Hygge Master Bedroom and Baby Nook.

July 20, 2017

When it came to preparing for baby number 3, Mr. Perfect and I decided to minimise and prioritise. Being realistic about the 1st few months of “newborn life”. I knew I would be in a haze of baby cuddles, diapers, burping and breastfeeding while Alec would be taking on more responsibility with our other 2 girls. Having another pretty nursery wasn’t important to us… We needed a sanctuary of our own where we could destress and power-up for each day’s…

A Room to Share: Swan inspired Toddler Bedroom.

May 5, 2017

When Eliana and Lia asked to share a room we were more than reluctant to agree but after a brief trial period we soon realised it wasn’t just a good idea but a great gift we could give our girls. Not only would it settle the “I don’t want to sleep alone” debate but it’s a fantastic opportunity to bond and learn consideration and respect for others. So we started planning our toddler bedroom to share… 1st, we needed a…

Baby Krister’s, little dreamer’s lullaby nursery

December 17, 2016

Creative mommy-to-be Heleen wanted to create a calm yet childlike atmosphere to accompany their 1st born, Krister to sleep every night. She kept the room neutral, combining modern and classic styles. Inspired by Belgian and Swedish design as well as a love for textures and tones that compliment a serene environment. Heleen describes herself as very nostalgic and filled Krister’s room with family treasures. The cozy couch was inherited from her late mother-in-law, the changing table was her parent’s old dining room…

Playroom Transformation: A Place To Play

November 5, 2016

Being a full-time mamma to two toddler girls as well as a part-time blogger and the more disorganised half of our marriage… The need for a home office / playroom was pretty big in our home. We never really used our study and although I tried making it into a place to play it just wasn’t functional and so about a month ago the big playroom renovation began. The study wasn’t very big to start with so we decided to…
