Gigantic Adventures with Bubblegummers children’s shoes

Nov 8, 2019
Kids shoe review

This post was sponsored by Bubblegummers - Bata shoes. Are you familiar with Bubblegummers children’s shoes? Until recently we didn’t know this label existed but then we were asked to be apart of the Bubblegummers Spring / Summer 2019 Gigantic Adventures campaign… Lia received some shoes and were told to go “adventure”! What could be better? Eliana got a pair to try as well. Our first impressions of the shoes and the Spring / Summer collection? That signature Bubble Smell……

Just A Mamma Blog Clean Beauty Finds8011

We’ve been on the road to living a healthier, more mindful life for a while now and sharing the best clean beauty finds we come across has become a little passion of mine. It’s incredible when you realise the amount of unnecessary toxins “big-name” beauty brands use to “fill” their skincare products making us believe low-level exposure doesn’t matter, hoping we won’t take prolonged use into account. Apps like EWG (Environmental Working Group) and blogs like goop inform us about…

“TWO” cool for school 2nd birthday bash!

Sep 10, 2019
DIY 2nd Birthday Party ideas

We’ve celebrated more than one 2nd birthday, and coming up with original themes is a bit more challenging every time… This year for Ava’s party, we decided to go with something completely different. Hinting to the fact that she’s still at home, and such a “mama’s girl”. A “TWO cool for School” theme seemed perfect! I made a quick invite on CANVA.com (every mama’s best friend when it comes to designing your own stationary) and sent it to our nearest…

Just a Mamma Yummy Mummy Maternity Capsule challenge

23 Weeks into our 3rd pregnancy and I’m feeling great and excited for another “Style the Bump” post!
