Trendy Hydration for the Mum on the go, go, go!
We love this Contigo Personalised drink bottle from Name My Stuff. Perfect for the pram cup holder, in a handbag and for those long, hot sessions pushing a swing at the park, you will be impressed by the quality and chuffed that it’s got your own name on it. It’s guaranteed to be leak proof, dishwasher-friendly, BPA free and at 750mls it’s the perfect size for taking out and about. Being a mum is thirsty work, this is a great value at only $22.95. Heck, the kids will want them too, check out the value packs and buy one for the whole family. Carrying a Mount Franklin bottle is so 2012! Eco-friendly, cost-effective and personalised is where it’s at this April!
We love a stylish, practical and comfortable sling at BH&T and the Hug-A-Bub Organic Pocket Wrap Carrier from Baby Carriers Australia is this month’s stand out. It looks amazing, you and your baby will love the bonding, it’s made of safe certified organic cotton and its machine washable. Multi award-winning, ensuring orthopedically correct positioning and supportive to bub from head to toe it let’s you be hands free to get on with your day. It even has its own self-pocket so you can pop in it your handbag. Seriously, stop us now as we could keep raving about this product. The hardest decision will be which colour to choose. Your mothers group will all want one too… must have.
Lust-have boots for winter?
Blue suede shoes!
Comfortable winter shoes need not be sneakers – these soft, suede boots from Hush Puppies will be your go-to wardrobe choice for cooler months. They are practical for the park, versatile from jeans to a dress with tights and cool enough to give you street cred with your childless friends. Subtle western detailing and a wood-stack heel mean these boots are made for walking and looking good. Even better they are treated for stain and water resistance so they will look as good at winter’s end as the day you buy them. Yelena by Hush Puppies is available at the Bstore for $149.
A pop of fun colour, with a gorgeous, on-trend nappy bag!
Forget lugging around that basic black bag of all your baby gear. Nappy bags are as much a fashion statement as you want them to be! We adore this red one from Lubelle, it’s a splurge at $239 but with genuine leather, functional meets stylish design, high-quality construction and that show-stopping colour we think it’s an investment piece you’ll love to carry for many years to come.
Being a Mum can be tiring work, so create a dreamy space that’s your very own to retire to each night is key! This fun, geo bed linen from Kmart is a steal from $22 and will make you fall in love with your bedroom all over again. Warm tones are perfect for winter and at a bargain price you can afford to update your linen as the season’s change. Every mum should enjoy a bedroom space that’s made for rest. Just don’t fall in love too much and forget how those babies are made… new sheets can have that effect on people!
Escape with a fab new release book…
One Summer in Venice is our favourite new release read this month. Written by Nicky Pellagrino, former editor of New Zealand Women’s Weekly, it’s the rich story of one women’s quest for happiness set against a trip to Venice. You’ll love the escapism of this gorgeous tale that will strike a chord with mothers, wives and employees who find themselves questioning what exactly will make them happy?
