Mar 29, 2018
JustaMamma Easter 20181994

Easter. A time to stop, be grateful and thank our Lord for the love He has shown us. That’s what Easter means to us. It’s also a time to spend with family. Since I can remember we’ve always celebrated with a special Easter breakfast or brunch. It’s one of my fondest childhood memories and a tradition we have continued with the girls. This year we surprised them all a little earlier than usual with a break of dawn backyard breakfast…

DIY Pink Party 1st Birthday Celebration

Jan 11, 2018
JAM Eliana turns 1 us

Back in 2013 we celebrated Eliana’s 1st birthday. It was our first time planning and hosting a kids party. I’m not sure who was more excited; Mr. Perfect or myself… Eliana honestly couldn’t care less but, we were 1st time parents that survived the 1st year! It NEEDED to be celebrated. We went for the ultimate cliché; a girly PINK PARTY! (It was the year of pink and clichés are there for a reason, right?) I planned every last detail…

Just a Mamma DIY 6 month photoshoot

On Saturday Ava turned 6 months, yes a half year! And like “good parents” we knew we had to mark the occasion with a memorable half birthday photoshoot. It’s a little tradition that in the past have always involved food seeing as 6 months was the time we introduced solids to Eliana and Lia. Ava has however happily been enjoying food for a month but we like the tradition and thought a watermelon cake would be clever. I had it…

Last week we shared Lia’s Got Milk themed 1st birthday party. This week it’s all about turning 2! Lia is definitely a girly girl, she loves dress-up and tea parties but also enjoys nature, exploring the garden and picking flowers. This got us thinking… let’s put together a Tea for Two, garden style. It would be a quaint backyard garden tea party with all her little friends and being a tea-lover myself, I’ll admit, this party got me really excited!…

A Room To Share: Hygge Master Bedroom and Baby Nook.

JAM room reveal cover

When it came to preparing for baby number 3, Mr. Perfect and I decided to minimise and prioritise. Being realistic about the 1st few months of “newborn life”. I knew I would be in a haze of baby cuddles, diapers, burping and breastfeeding while Alec would be taking on more responsibility with our other 2 girls. Having another pretty nursery wasn’t important to us… We needed a sanctuary of our own where we could destress and power-up for each day’s…

Maternity shoots are usually all about the belly, the mommy and the love between the couple that helped create this new little human. When you are blessed to experience a 2nd, 3rd or even 4th pregnancy, siblings add to the joy and while expecting our second little girl back in 2014 we knew we wanted to include big sis, Eliana in a family maternity photoshoot. Being only 2 at the time and naturally camera shy, posing wasn’t really her thing…

Easter, the most important holiday and the perfect time to host an intimate DIY backyard Easter Garden Party. “There is a garden in every childhood, an enchanted place where colours are brighter, the air softer and the morning more fragrant than ever again.” – Elizabeth Lawrence Our garden isn’t just a pretty setting but also the perfect way to introduce subtle elements from Jesus’s Crucifixion (not an easy holiday to explain to little ones). It was after all in the…
