A Boho Tea Party

For Nylah’s first birthday I decided to hold a Bohemian / Vintage / Garden Tea Party. I’m unsure what exactly it is about 1st birthday parties, but I always feel some (unwarranted) pressure to hold a nice one. I guess your baby’s first lap around the sun is significant, a milestone for the both of you. Which undoubtedly

Raising the Free – Part 1: Follow Your Heart

You will often see me referring to my son Kruize as a ‘free spriit’. This isn’t because its cute, or ‘on trend’ but he truly is the epitomy of the words. His soul is gentle, but wild. He is emotional, extremely intelligent, very literal, has a strong connection with nature, bugs and animals, he is

Vanilla Coco Latte Scrub

One of my fave products for my body is a coffee scrub. There’s something about them that leaves you feeling so fresh and revitalised (apart from the accidental coffee snorting during application). So I decided I would try and whip up my own delicious little combo to gift to Kruizey’s daycare teachers as end of

Jess – Bonnie and Harlo

I became an instant admirer of Jess’ label Bonnie and Harlo when I *excitedly* found out we were expecting a little girl. Not long after, I made my first (of soon to be many) purchases of these sweet bows. We quickly became friends & chatted back and forth about life, motherhood and business. I’m so

A TASTE OF THE ISLAND LIFE It’s kind of hard to believe that even after having a Husband & two children who are Cook Islander, we had yet to make the trip there. Thankfully, Ava’s brother decided to get married on Rarotonga, which made for the perfect excuse for us to take the plunge (lame
