I have been obsessed with finding proudly South African loungewear for woman… Pyjama sets, robes and night slips that aren’t just comfy to wear but that’s also beautiful and stylish. As a work-from-home-mom I spend a lot of time going nowhere… Working in between nap times, meal prep, cleaning and play. It’s easy to forget about myself. I especially remember the early, newborn days of motherhood. Days when getting dressed was an achievement in itself. I cried a lot, laughed…

KIds winter Fashion Just a Mamma cover

Supporting local and buying proudly South African is a choice we made a few years ago, around the time our eldest Eliana was born.

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…

The other 20% goes for items we can’t…
