Boob design to the rescue!
There's something so contradictory about the first weeks after giving birth. Of course there is that wonderful, magical feeling of bliss -- the birth, that beautiful, earthy smell, seeing and holding your baby for the first time, admiring every detail of him (her), spending your days on the couch, in bed, being so proud, feeling ...

Pregnancy Yoga with Nadia
I had never done yoga before... until I found myself at 32 weeks pregnant with a breech baby. A good friend (and fellow pregnant mama) recommended I try yoga, both for the physical benefit as well as to calm my mind and find a sense of peace with my pregnancy and baby.  I figured I ...

38 weeks pregnant and thankful for Koka Mama
I have gotten to the point in my pregnancy where the only thing I can comfortably wear are leggings. (I had a funny conversation with my 7-year-old the other day where he asked me why I always take him to school in my 'pyjamas'. I told him they weren't my pyjamas, they were 'leggings' and ...

Something old, something new...
The bed for baby is ready! Set up in our bedroom, waiting, waiting... The one very special thing about this little bed is the sheet that was embroidered by my late grandmother in the 1940s of last century, for the birth of my mother (her oldest daughter). It's 70 years old! I love that little ...

The pregnancy 'club'
Being in the final stages of pregnancy, walking around with a nice plump bump, I'm reminded of that wonderful, sweet secret of pregnancy: there is some sort of unspoken yet certainly acknowledged 'club' that pregnant women belong to. Other pregnant women will always acknowledge you, even if it's just in their eyes, and you feel ...

Bouncing boobs, and better bras
My fourth pregnancy, my poor boobs. The last 7 years, they've gone from a nice, average C cup to an enormous size F (no kidding), and after breastfeeding periods (having to endure engorgement and nipple cloves and the like) back to pitiful creations barely having the chance to recover from it all or hey, there ...

Tribe Bags - The Ultimate Breed of Baby Bags
When I had babies, I was always the least organised and ill-prepared mum. I'd meet my friends in a café and I was always the one asking for a spare nappy or stealing other mum's snacks for my own children (how it's possible to forget nappies, I'm not sure... but I did it often!). I'm pretty ...

Hi guys! Here Bethie and I are showing you how to prepare a super easy dish that your family will love -- a video we bring to you in cooperation with Abel & Cole, deliverer of fabulous food boxes filled to the brim with organic freshness! Here's the list of ingredients: a royal 1 tbsp of olive oil 1 butternut squash 1 red onion 2 red peppers 2 garlic cloves 4 vine tomatoes 150g quinoa sea salt & freshly ground pepper 300 ml vegetable stock 2 tbsp red wine vinegar 25g raisins 80g black olives And for the garnish: a handful of chervil feta (optional) Directions: Peel your butternut squash. Cut in half and scoop out the seeds. Chop the flesh into 1cm chunks. Peel and cut the onion into thick slices. Cut the pepper in half and scoop out the seeds and white pith. Chop into bitesized pieces. Peel and thinly slice the garlic. Roughly chop the tomatoes. Rinse the quinoa under cold water to remove any bitterness. Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a large heavy based pan. Tip in all the veg and quinoa. Pour in the veg stock and the red wine vinegar. Add the raisins and the olives. Season with salt and pepper. Pop on a lid and cook for 30-40 mins until the squash is soft and the sauce thick. Stir every now and then during cooking. Scatter over the chervil (or flat leaf parsley leaves) and serve in warm bowls. Top with crumbled feta if you like! A super colourful, super easy and super delicious dish for taste buds of all ages! Bon appétit!
