A customer sent in this picture this week of the gorgeous Mila modelling her haul from a recent giveaway. Love, love, love being tagged or sent pictures - I always love telling my daughter who I’m sewing for while I’m making clothes, it’s what makes it extra special ❤️ After all, this is a one-woman show - no mass produced items here!
We are so excited to announce the third piece to MOMM event 2! An introduction to meditation 🧘♂️ Nikola Magerkorth @nirmalawellbeing is an advocate for ‘healing the whole’. As a corporate escape, Nik holds a Bachelor of Arts from The University of Otago and has recently finished her Bachelor of Naturopathy and Herbal Medicine with Wellpark Collage of Natural Therapies. With a Diploma of Yoga from the Himalayan Yoga Institute, she has over nine years of personal yoga practice and five years of teaching experience. RYT200 trained, she is a passionate yoga teacher and fuses her natural leadership qualities alongside her knowledge, passion, experience and LOVE of yoga and mindfulness to create highly specialised and individualised classes. Her aim is to make yoga intentional and accessible for all. Nik believes wellbeing begins with the power of self-love. In a world that tells us not to love our self, nurturing and grounding practices offer us a way to reconnect with ourselves and others.
Nik will be leading a small meditation and will talk a little about the history and the evidence based benefits. We can’t wait to learn from her 🧡
This is Rachel. Living with #PCOS meant that Rachel struggled with losing weight in her midsection. She tried crossfit, keto, paleo and yoga. Even with increasing her activity, she couldn't get that extra fluff around her tummy to shift.
She took medication to help balance her hormones and nothing worked...she decided to try just one more time.
She took our liquid waist trainer with clinical strength CLA, this stuff literally stops fat cells from forming 😲 now available in a summery yummylicious coconut lime flavour 🍋 + plus our all natural thermogenic pills.
Drop the word ME in the comments for more info. I've got $10 discounts for new customers...oh and did I mention the 100% empty bottle money back guarantee?!
Some bloody people arrrggghh! If you saw my stories today, you would’ve seen my rant about a phone convo I had today which left me pretty grumpy (but not as grumpy as the person on the other end of the line!).
Anyway, I’ve decided that when people react with intolerance it’s their issue, not mine.
So with that in mind, I think it’s chewed up enough of my energy today and so with this post I release it into the universe and I’m letting go! (Cue Frozen theme song 🎶).
Gotta stay positive, right??
Winter solstice garlic planting 🖤
Audrey Hepburn once said that to plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow. I couldn't agree more. Garlic is not a crop for those seeking instant gratification. It's a long, beautiful cycle taking a full trip around the sun. .
Garlic tells a story. These cloves in my bowl are descendents from the garlic I planted when pregnant with Stella 6 years ago. The second year, Stella was an 8 month old baby sitting happily on the dirt handing me cloves from a jar. Every year since the kids have been involved. .
How long will the story continue I wonder? Will I be able to pass bulbs on to my kids when they're grown to plant in their own gardens? Garlic that has been going for 20+ years and started before they were born? Time will tell, but for now I'll continue to enjoy the process and adding to the story. .
From harvest to planting (6 months) I'm saving the biggest cloves every time I cook in the kitchen. I keep an open jar on top of the fridge and love seeing it slowly fill up. The closer to the top, the nearer to winter solstice. We spend the weeks leading up to planting prepping the soil. Weeding, mulching, and digging in manure from our chickens. .
We sow each clove and talk to them like they're our babies. Patting the soil lovingly. Grow strong, grow well little ones, we look forward to meeting you when you break through the soil on your own. But take your time, we're not in any hurry 🖤

This week (being super organised) I’ve sent out Harpers first birthday party invites 😭😭😭How are we nearly there already?! She needs to slow down - the last couple of months have seen 6 teeth, crawling, clapping, waving, mostly sleeping through the night, eating anything I put in front of her (and whatever she finds on the floor 🤨) and half a dozen words. Then today she goes and pulls herself up to standing for the first time by holding onto the baby safety gate in Coopers room. Later on she used a plastic storage box to stand up and then proceeded to climb on it and sit up on top all #proudaspunch and #lookatme 😆 I happily celebrate each of these milestones with her and then 2 minutes later I cry because it’s the last time and it’s going so quick 😢 #emotionalwreck#mybabygirl#longdaysshortyears#babymilestones#firstbirthday#babymum#mumoftwo#nzmum#motherhood#kiwimamalife#mumlife#kiwimum#sahm#stayathomemum

Been a bit more quiet on the social media front, as we have been so busy with new products!! 😲
Loving hiking, and with Bethany getting bigger & bigger, I was re-evaluating everything we take hiking. We carry only enough sunscreen & kawakawa balm for the trip in a little plastic pottle that we just refill, which works great - but most of our weight was actually in the sleeping bags!!! Bethany is almost at the point where she needs her own sleeping bag - and each bag weighs 1kg! That's 3kg of sleeping bag weight!! So I thought there must be a better way. But there was nothing out there! Not if I wanted to buy local anyway. And much research, and experimentation has resulted in a result I'm pretty stoked with! At only 420 grams for -1 degree comfort, I'm super stoked to be adding these to the website soon! Plus the kids ones will start off at 250grams a sleeping bag 😲Keep your eyes out! 🤗

|| It’s a girl! || Congratulations to the PM and her husband on the birth of their baby girl today.
Such a special time for all new parents those first few days where you are inside the baby bubble - totally involved and besotted with this new little person in their lives.💕 And how cool is this photo?!
Greasy hair, messy kitchen, I Don’t Care!!!! Sometimes you just need to step back, life is full of responsibility, chores, stress and body woes sometimes you need to Fu*k the exercise, Fu*k the mess, Fu*k how you look and just have fun!!!!! Dance in your pyjamas, sing loudly and proudly, watch a bad tv show, have a glass of wine, mess around like you would if nothing else mattered. I’m not talking about turning into an irresponsible nutter I’m just saying it’s ok to laugh at yourself, it’s ok to have fun in ur kitchen on a Thursday 😂 it’s ok to not care all the time about everything. The best thing you can teach your kids is how to laugh at themselves and have fun......so do it!!!!🙌🤣 you are never too old and amazingly by igniting the FUN fire you often find a healthy, happy path far easier to create 🍾💕 yes I’m wearing men’s boxers, yes my slipper socks are sexy 🤔
Congratulations to the PM and her hubby on the birth of their beautiful baby girl.
All parents can relate to those overwhelming feelings when your baby is placed in your arms for the very first time.💕
I hope they get to experience and enjoy those special first days inside the baby bubble.
Who else loves this photo?❤️
Photo taken by my six year old, unknowingly by me - just found the photo ❤ ~My 4 year old and I doing 'inchworms' as part of my warm up.
I love that my kids get to see Mum exercising and training clients, they get to understand the amazing benefits of exercise, learn the names and technqiue, and are both always keen to join in or watch 😍
After some of the things I've read in the past 24hrs, and the things I'm sure I'll continue to read I just wanted to put a reminder out there that bullying is NEVER okay.
If you ever need to talk, find someone that will listen, and don't stop talking until you get help ❤
Update! I’ve popped them up on the site! Xo
If you haven’t seen today’s story - check it out ♥️😘
I've got some BARGAINS going up on the site tonight - I have the items in stock and ready to ship and I'm popping them up for 30% off!! 🙌
They are brand new season, a super nice thick stretch cotton and come with the breastfeeding scarf! Tops will be just $44.00 and Dresses just $63.00 (scarf/sling included!) 😍
WHY?? You might ask.. These have a different zipper to our usual. The zips close together anywhere you wish and open right across the chest. Our usual zips close either side. NB: This in no way affects access for feeding.👍 I personally love it because I close it to the side I want to feed from next & it helps me remember where I'm at! - But not sure if it will be everyone's cuppa! So, for a trial run we are offering a FAB price!! The sizing is very relaxed so if you want a more true fit I recommend sizing down I'm wearing the Small in the photos, I am normally a size Small in Milkbar. Room to accommodate bumps & free the mum-tum! 💕😂 I'll update THIS POST with the link when they're up on the site xx

My little water baby.
I had a water birth with this little babe and it was such a beautiful experience!! I wish I had a water birth with Charles too but my anxiety kicked in and I didn’t want my baby to drown (even thought I knew he wouldn’t drown) the thought of it just freaked me out! But second time around I let go of those fears & it was the best decision ever ❣️
