Highlight on Snackaby, the most helpful reusable snack bags

My husband, is a bit of “control packer”, well that is actually an understatement. And, let’s get this straight – I Am Not Complaining in the slightest.

This all came to light when I met him 13 years ago, here in New York City. It was my first time leaving him to go back to Australia for a while, and he insisted on packing my suitcase for me. I did think it was a little weird at the time, but after he had finished packing I was really quite amazed. My husband knows how to pack a suitcase! Since then, I have literally never been allowed to pack my suitcase (or our Son’s) when we go on trips. My husband packs us all up meticulously, which as you can imagine is a lot stress on me so I am very much okay with it, especially as I am one of those packers that just throws everything in a suitcase and hopes for the best!

Let’s talk Facial Masques & Keeping it Greentastic with Balanced Guru

Facial masques have been used for thousands of years as part of beauty regiments by people the world over looking to better or maintain the health and appearance of one’s skin. Thankfully I have been hip to this since I was a little girl, using them mostly as part of a 2 step process, after steaming my face to open my pores. There really is no comparison when using a facial cleanser in the shower, to the super-clean rejuvenating feeling achieved after using a masque.

Mamarazzi® “Mayim’s Vegan Table” Book Launch

I was thrilled when Willy B Mum recently gave me the opportunity to attend The Moms Mamarazzi® book launch for Mayim Bialik’s cookbook Mayim’s Vegan Table. I should start by admitting that I do not watch The Big Bang Theory, and was not allowed to watch television back when Blossom was on.  But I have been a fan of Mayim’s ever since I picked up Beyond the Sling, her insightful book on attachment parenting, and when you add that to her veganism and her PhD in neuroscience, I didn’t need to be a fan of her acting to be totally starstruck when I met her.

Willy B Mum Body Butter

Something strange and enlightening happened to me when I became pregnant with my now 3-year-old Son; I became obsessed with only using products on/in my body which were toxin free. This included the FACE STOCKHOLM bright orange nail polish, (which doesn’t contain DBP, Toluene or Formaldehyde), that I am wearing in the photo below, to everything in between; skin moisturizer, shampoo, conditioner, toothpaste, deodorant even the food I ate. Geez, I even stopped drinking coffee!

Paxley Sunglasses, especially for our Little Ones

My Mum told me that growing up as a child in Australia I did not wear sunglasses, explaining that it was unheard of back then and as far as she knew they were not even available in children’s sizing. That is not the case these days, with Californian-based Paxley providing colorful, affordable and stylish options for the little Apples of Our Eyes!

Willy B Mum Loves the Aussie inspired aden + anais®

When I was pregnant with my now 3-year-old Son, like most first-time Moms, I had no idea what to expect, how I was going to cope, what to do or how being a parent was forever going to change my life. You know, you prepare as much as you can reading books and talking to other people; but you just do not get it entirely, until you have a bundle of joy cradled in your arms looking up at you like you are the Bees Knees.
