What I wish I knew about miscarriage, before we had one

How to support your wife when you have a Miscarriage

The 20th of August will always be a day we remember. Not in celebration but rather in memory of what could have been… It’s the day we remember the loss of our 2nd baby. It was an early loss, a miscarriage in the first trimester. Not that this matters, it was still a loss. You can read about my experience HERE. It has taken us years to openly share our miscarriage and today, 6 years later, Mr. Perfect wanted to…

Hello Terrific 2’s: Celebrating Ava’s 2nd birthday

Jul 8, 2019

And just like that we are celebrating our little Ava’s 2nd birthday! It feels like only yesterday that I was writing a letter to our 1 year old and celebrating Frida Kahlo style with a Mexican fiesta. Now you are running, talking our ear on fire and carving out your own unique spot in the world. Yes, at two you are a fierce little lady and it’s easy to mistake this time as “terrible”, BUT if we look closely we…

Weaning our toddler

Jun 20, 2019

There is so much information, tips and advice on breastfeeding, especially regarding milk supply, establishing a routine, facing challenges and more. Kicking-off your breastfeeding journey can be difficult but so can deciding to stop. It took me weeks to feel okay about weaning our toddler. I had to look past the mom-guilt and “expert voices” telling me it will happen when Ava is ready. Ava, ready to stop nursing? Not this girl! She could have gone for at least another…

Mom Sharing – Treasuring Motherhood

May 27, 2019

I have loved featuring all the different moms this month. From “Slaying Social Media” to “Taking care of themselves” (and their families) and also treasuring motherhood. I have learnt a lot and feel inspired. Not because I want to be a better mom but rather because while getting to know all these incredible women I have come to realise WE ARE ALL ALREADY the best mamas for our little ones – we just need to realise it too. Maybe today’s…

How to increase your breastmilk supply with Mrs. Milk lactation bars

How to increase you breastmilk

No two breastfeeding journeys are the same but as a mom it’s always a top priority figuring out how to increase your breastmilk supply. Taking care of yourself while nursing and nourishing your body is important but not always possible. The newborn days can be particularly challenging and prolonged breastfeeding can cause a lot of strain on your body too. I remember feeling particularly drained around Ava’s first birthday. At 18 months I was ready to stop breastfeeding. Between 3…

Moms sharing – Self care for moms

May 14, 2019

Self care for moms is an important topic, one I’ve also given some tips on. (Click on this link for our post on 10 EASY SELF-CARE TIPS FOR MOMS). As moms we give so much of ourselves, without any hesitation BUT we tend to forget; we need to “fill our cups” too, because you can’t pour from an empty vessel. Last week we celebrated 4 mamas SLAYING SOCIAL MEDIA. Today it’s the queens of self care. Somehow through the hustle and…

What I wish I knew before becoming a mother (3 times over)

May 12, 2019

Becoming a mother is life changing, redefining, challenging, overwhelming, exciting, tiring, the biggest blessing any woman can imagine… every single time. Our girls may share a gene pool but they were all born with their own needs, personality and preferences. Becoming a mother, 3 times over has meant redefining motherhood, 3 times over. Yes, our values and parenting goals are the same for all our kids but my approach to mothering them isn’t. Eliana is driven, independent and self-critical by…

Moms sharing – Slaying social media

May 6, 2019
top social media tips for bloggers

Celebrating other woman during the month of May has become an annual tradition on the blog. It’s also one of my favourite things to do. This year we aren’t just celebrating incredible moms but also asking them to pay it forward in a series “Moms sharing” . Each woman share what they have learnt, giving fellow mompreneurs important help and advice. We are kicking the series off with 4 mamas slaying social media. They openly talk about the challenges and…

Best gifts for mom this Mother’s Day!

Apr 26, 2019

{*This post is not sponsored but may contain affiliate links.} Letting mom sleep-in, bringing her a cup of tea in bed with a fist full of handpicked flowers or surprising her with a handmade card… Those are the best gifts for mom and memories she’ll treasure well into her ageing years. Mother’s Day isn’t about the gifts or blowing the budget on something extravagant BUT, sometimes it is nice being spoiled with a special package because lets be honest… The…

Infant car seat review

We love to travel and hitting the road with our kids, adventuring somewhere new is one of our favourite things to do. That being said, traveling isn’t just fun and memory making. Safety is a key factor to consider. Especially when driving.  So, when Chelino Baby asked if we would review the new Chelino Transformer Car Seat I jumped at the opportunity, eager to find out how it measures up in terms of comfort, style and most importantly keeping our…
