Just a Mamma Thomas and Friends_7112

A few weeks ago our entire family got treated to a special premiere screening of the new Thomas the train film. Thomas and Friends. Big World! Big Adventures! The entire family was excited. I however had my doubts feeling hesitant about going to the movies with a 6, 4 and 1 year old… (Let’s just say the previous experience was less than desirable). Our girls are busy, rough and tumble kind of gals. We keep screen time to a minimum…

Establishing a Good Skincare Routine with Oolala Collection

September 26, 2018
Just a Mamma Clean Beauty

Over the past 33 years I haven’t been kind to my skin. Sure, I apply sunblock when needed and I wash and moisturise my face every evening. I even enjoy the occasional mask and serum but I take my good skin for granted, only giving it some much needed attention while pregnant. Mr.Perfect and the girls however, must use every lotion, cream and soap I buy ensuring they are taken care of. I know it’s a “mom thing” – nurturing…

Just a Mamma Barbie book series

By now I’m sure you’ve noticed… We are Barbie fans. Being a #girlmom it’s impossible not to love a brand that invests and cares so much about empowering woman and inspiring little girls to become all they’ve ever imagined. Mr. Perfect and I agree, we want to teach our girls that they can be anything they want to be and do anything they want to do. They can and should – Dream BIG! So, when we were asked to review the brand…

Just a Mamma Barney Board Books

Establishing a love for reading and books is something we value as parents. So much so that we started reading stories to our girls even before they were born. Bedtime stories is a nightly must and you’ll always find books all over our home. We want to expose our girls to a variety of stories and books that evolve and change as they grow and become skilled in reading. Books that awaken their curiosity, provide joy, teach them and take…

Our current favourite Disney Junior shows

September 12, 2018
Disney Junior

There’s no denying it. We are massive Disney fans. Whether it’s princess parties or imaginative play. The girls can’t get enough, and if I’m totally honest, neither can we. What’s not to love about a brand that has been around longer than most of us? I remember growing up with Disney. In fact, after my parent’s divorce I had one particular Minnie Mouse dress that I always wore. Nothing fancy – It had a red and white polka dot skirt…

For me, part of being a mom is making sure our family follows a healthy diet and one thing I always keep an eye out for is delicious, on the go kids snacks for our girls. Treats that are tasty, healthy and easy to eat. Life gets busy in a family of 5 and you never know when those hunger pains might creep up. It’s best to always have something to nibble on, at hand. Kiddylicious is one of our new…

Just a Mamma 5 best toys for a 1 year old

Our little Ava is one and for her 1st birthday we celebrated with a beautiful party (more coming soon) and her own room. A cozy space all to herself wasn’t the only gift she got. Ava received a few wonderful presents and I taught it would be handy to share them with you seeing as I always get moms, aunts and friends asking; “What are the best toys to buy a 1 year old?” 1.

Finally! The day has arrived to reveal Ava’s little girl room! It took months of planning, sourcing, emailing and carefully selecting all the items fit for our baby lady’s little girl room. For some reason it has been my most challenging room make-over to date. Now that it’s complete, I’m so pleased with how everything came together. Best of all, Ava LOVES her room too! We find her basking in the sun, playing with her toys and simply enjoying her…
