April 9, 2018
JustaMamma Kim Rose Little Rose Collection

I couldn’t believe that Kim contacted me. I am a huge fan and have been…

March 26, 2018
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.

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…

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!

Olly Polly Read

November 13, 2017

Our homes are filled with Tv’s, iPads and computers, yet no medium can stir the imagination like a good book. Books take us to new places, introduce us to friends we would never have met and teaches us far more than that which is just written… A child’s love for reading and their ability to read all starts with the opening of “that 1st book”. Olly Polly Kids knows this and with their incredible love for all things local, they just…
