#shoplocal : Our Fashion favourites for A/W 2018

June 5, 2018
KIds winter Fashion

Supporting local and buying proudly South African is a choice we made a few years ago, around the time our eldest Eliana was born. Little by little we made changes, buying more consciously and building a home (and especially a closet) filled with items made by our fellow countrymen. Step one was shopping small, have a look at “The Ultimate list of proudly South African Clothing Brands for Kids” in a post from a few weeks ago. Step two has…

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…

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…

xoxo baby bath time cuteness!

January 22, 2018

One of the cutest gift we got when Ava was born was something practical too… A hooded towel. I know, I know, it’s something so ordinary and something everyone has but the Hip Hop Hooray bunny towel from XOXO Baby really is something special. Firstly, the size. Bigger than most hooded towels you’re sure to cuddle baby well into the toddler years wrapped up in their xoxo baby towel. The quality is also fantastic! Made with thick, highly absorbent 100% cotton towelling…
