Helping Mama recover post birth: The Ubuntu Baba Baby carrier

August 16, 2017

One truth about having babies; it doesn’t get easier. Whether natural delivery or caesarean, the challenge, pain and discomfort is inevitable and c-section number 3 was definitely more sore than 1 and 2. Recovery also took a little longer seeing as I was experiencing more pain and bleeding than I expected.(Apparently all normal for a 3rd round.) Thank goodness for our Ubuntu Baba baby carrier (and Mr. Perfect)! Life outside the womb can be lonely and as we all know most…

Style the Bump: Gelique Couture

August 14, 2017

Last week I shared our FAMILY MATERNITY PHOTOSHOOT AMONGST THE LAVENDER FIELDS. By far one of my fondest memories of this 3rd pregnancy. I got the opportunity to collaborate with some amazing woman, all with the shared purpose of creating the most beautiful maternity sessions. One of the woman (and businesses) at the heart of it all was Angelique du Toit from Gelique Couture. Gelique Couture, a proudly South African design house specialising in bridesmaid dresses and wedding attire. That…

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…

Father’s Day with Lullaby Rock Apparel

June 14, 2017

Father’s Day is around the corner and just because Mr. Perfect is a “girl dad” all things don’t always have to be tea parties and tutu’s (although he rules those too). This year we teamed up with Lullaby Rock, one of our favourite brands, to surprise him with a rocking Father’s Day photoshoot. A tribute to the man we call DAD! “Our Dad is STRONG, just like his coffee!” The location was easy… These days date nights can be a challenge…

Feminine fall fashion for Mama and Mini

May 19, 2017

Feminine – {Adjective} having qualities or an appearance traditionally associated with woman,especially delicacy and prettiness.womanly, womanlike, ladylike, girlish, female etc. May has always been such a girly month to me… It might be Mother’s Day still lingering or the way mother nature starts tucking away every plant and tree as all the autumn leaves fall to the ground, preparing us for winter hibernation. It could just be the gorgeous fall fashion that awakens my inner fashionista but one thing I…

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…
