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…

pHformula Skin resurfacing

We all know mom life is hard but it can also be hard on your skin. An unexpected keepsake from pregnancy has been pigmentation. Every time I fall pregnant we don’t just grow our family but I also get an added pigmentation spot. Always on the left side of my face, around my eyes and upper cheek. The pigmentation gets darker and the spots bigger and more. They tend to lighten up after breastfeeding but never disappear. We are suppose…

Barbie Fashionistas: See your own beauty!

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”.…

Sex after Baby

February 12, 2018
Mom and dad kissing

Let’s jump right into it… Sex after baby! Yes, I was told I could experience “some discomfort”… Some discomfort? Are you kidding me? More like excruciating pain! It’s a secret we mamas keep to ourselves. WHY? Is it because this topic is still taboo, even after you’ve just had a baby? Or are we scared to frazzle our new sisters joining the mamahood? Is intimacy and a pleasurable sex life not important to woman, especially moms? How could no one…

Okay mama, so you had your baby and love your cute, little bundle of joy. You’ve made it through the 1st couple of weeks and you’re getting use to your “new life”. Now it’s time to start taking care of yourself again too… More specifically, it’s time to get back into shape! For a fortunate few (usually those young mamas in their 20’s), this just happens but if you’re like me, you’ll need to put in some effort to feel…

Weaning Sense : Making food FUN for everyone!

January 31, 2018

Deciding to start solids isn’t easy. With so many contradictory opinions regarding exclusive breastfeeding and allergy prevention, taking this 1st step towards the food isle can be daunting. About a month ago we took that step… After a lot of back and forth but we finally decided to start! With our older girls we went more “traditional”. Breastfeeding exclusively for 6 months but Ava was ready and eager to eat at 5 months. With the help of the Weaning Sense…

First Aid Kit essentials by Survival CPR

January 23, 2018

At the end of last year I had the pleasure of attending a CPR and First Aid course by Survival CPR. It was incredible and I was blown away by how much I learnt in one Saturday (and not even a full day; 9am to 3pm). For the 1st time ever, I am now confident (and certified) to give CPR to a baby, child or adult in need and I also know how to treat minor wounds and trauma and…

DIY Pink Party 1st Birthday Celebration

January 11, 2018

Back in 2013 we celebrated Eliana’s 1st birthday. It was our first time planning and hosting a kids party. I’m not sure who was more excited; Mr. Perfect or myself… Eliana honestly couldn’t care less but, we were 1st time parents that survived the 1st year! It NEEDED to be celebrated. We went for the ultimate cliché; a girly PINK PARTY! (It was the year of pink and clichés are there for a reason, right?) I planned every last detail…
