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…

What Ava really thought about her half birthday photoshoot

January 9, 2018

On Saturday Ava turned 6 months, yes a half year! And like “good parents” we knew we had to mark the occasion with a memorable half birthday photoshoot. It’s a little tradition that in the past have always involved food seeing as 6 months was the time we introduced solids to Eliana and Lia. Ava has however happily been enjoying food for a month but we like the tradition and thought a watermelon cake would be clever. I had it…

Pregnancy Bucket list for Mama.

November 6, 2017

Pregnancy. What a special time.  A time to cherish, enjoy, remember… Yes, we’ve all heard it over-and-over again and although it’s true, this is not always easily done. Work, having other little ones, feeling less than “glowing”… all of these things can make it a little difficult to stop and enjoy these 9 months of growing another human. Now, post baby number 3, I’m looking back at all our pregnancies and I’ve come up with a little “pregnancy bucket list”…

Turning 3 and it’s all about me!

October 2, 2017

3 It’s always been a favourite of mine… 13 Feb 2003 – the day I met Mr. Perfect, October 3rd – our wedding anniversary, also the amount of little ladies we currently have and 3, the age of our middle little. Isn’t 3 just the cutest? We’re past the hard work of those 1st few years and everyone survived the “terrible twos”… no more bottles, diapers, no trying to decipher the wants and needs of a 3 foot dictator. Yes, 3…

The birth of Ava Loïs

September 6, 2017

Today our Ava is two months old. I celebrate by sharing her birth story. It took me a while to post because finding words to describe the emotions and experience of that day is impossible, but I’ll try my best. So here goes… Being my 3rd Caesarean section you’d think I’d be calm, knowing what to expect and ready for the day. This however was not the case. I felt more nervous and anxious than ever before. The knowledge of…

Spring has sprung: A photoshoot inspired by new beginnings!

With spring in the air one can’t help but do some self-pruning and internal “housekeeping”.

Yes, we have 3 girls! 3 amazingly bubbly, diversely different, future woman of the world. Currently we are in the midst of newborn life, toddler emotions and preschool concert prep. Our home is a…

#TwinningPlusOne: Schnooky Pie

August 17, 2017

We have always been passionate about supporting local, shopping small (in the hope the brand will grow BIG) and being proudly South African but now that we have 3 little ladies to dress between the ages of 6 weeks and 5 years it is a bit more challenging… Key factors making things hard: Limited choice – There’s an abundance of baby clothes available online and in stores but as the girls turn 3 our options seem to decline rapidly. Affordability…
