#JUSTLIKEUSKIDS

In January this year (on the very day Jess was to give birth to her daughter) in a Mommalikeyou feature, I introduced you to Jess Roberts. A Momma to Luke and Holly, she has spearheaded a phenomenal campaign to celebrate Down Syndrome Awareness Month this October and prove that Luke, just like any other kid born with…

Help! My Baby has Colic!

Colic. The five-letter word that makes every new mother or father tremble. My first born, Oli, had it and those first three months were tortuous for all of us to say the least. Coupled with adjusting to a baby for the first time, raging hormones, and a lack of sleep, colic thrown into the mix…

The perfect Peppa Pig party!

Monday came with the honour of styling a Peppa Pig party for one of the sweetest little three year olds I know! My family has been to Bella’s last two parties, and I know the lengths her Mom goes to, to throw the most special day for her baby girl, so I knew it had to…

A Mommy’s Birthday Gift Guide (aka mine)

I’ll be 33 (eek, I can’t quite believe it) on the 9th of September. I do gift guides for everyone else, and for just about every occasion, so I figured why not do one for my own birthday this year?! I hope this round up might be helpful for a friend/boyfriend/husband out there wanting to…

optiphi® Facial Cleanser: The good, the bad and, nope, there’s no ugly!

Truthfully, there really isn’t ‘an ugly’. I’ve been testing the optiphi® Facial Cleanser (part of their Active range) for well over a month now and I’m completely sold on this product. Better than the phenomenal results I’ve gotten, this brand is Proudly South African! “Born from the knowledge applied in the fields of producing burn…
