My top 5 must haves for new mummas Feat. Organic Mums & Bubs.

I have been lucky enough to write a blog for one of my favourite Australian organic maternity and baby shops – Organic Mums and Bubs. The store is filled with absolutely divine 100% certified organic, eco friendly and ethical products which are suitable for pregnant and nursing mummas and their new bundle of joys.

Expecting a new baby can be lots of fun. Preparing and buying things for yourself and your little ones arrival is all part of the excitement of this new journey. There are so many great products to choose from on the market but at times can be quite overwhelming when deciding what you and bub require. Organic Mums and Bubs is one of my favourite online stores that caters for a wide range of all your mumma and bubba requirements, which is why I am putting together a blog post sharing with you the 5 products I love most from this amazing company.

I know we get super excited about spoiling Bub, but my first few must haves are just for mumma.

Comfortable Nursing Lounge Wear

The first few days depending on how you birth you could be in hospital. Followed by spending a lot of time at home getting to know your newborn. During this time just wanted to live in comfortable clothing. Little Winter Rose is now five weeks old and I still like to be comfortable to lounge around at home. If you choose to breastfeed to you will want comfortable clothes that you can nurse your newborn in. I really think that wearing comfy, soft clothing helped me to feel relaxed and comfortable in my own home and when heading to the shops.

I wear my Grace Bamboo Maternity Top and Essential Bamboo Maternity Pants together all the time around the house. The clothes are so comfy I even sleep in them and I can do my post natal yoga practice in this outfit too. Because it doesn’t look to pj like I can also wear out to the shops too and still feel good. The material of both the top and the pants feels great on my skin too, made from a mixture of organic cotton, bamboo viscose and a little spandex for stretch. I highly recommend this duo and packing it in your hospital bag if you are planning to have a overnight stay in hospital.

So comfy around the waistline and I love that the pants have a string to pull in as your postpartum stomach goes down.

Reusable Bamboo Nursing Pads and Wipes

Not only are the Milk Maid Mumma Nursing Pads kinder to the environment, I found they are so much more kinder to my breasts too than the disposable ones. They are made from bamboo and feel luxe against the nipples especially when my little Winter Rose is cluster feeding and my nipples feel grazed. The sit well in the bra and don’t scrunch up like the disposable ones do as the day goes on. I love seeing all the pretty prints on my washing line too. All nursing pad bundles come with a wet bag too, to keep the breast pads safe in the washing machine. Great for storing them in your nappy bag too.

The Milk Maid Mumma Reusable Wipes are also a great alternative to your everyday baby wipes we carry in our nappy bags. I have also found these wipe cloths great as a burping cloth alternative too. The wipes also come with a cute wet bag to store the wipes in.

Both of these Milk Maid Mumma products are kind to your wallet and are really reasonably priced, making them a perfect baby shower gift for any expecting mumma.

100% Organic Cotton/Bamboo clothing for your Newborn

Of course baby clothing is part of my list for new mummas as it’s so fun buying outfits for your new bundle of joy. I personally find it more fun than buying for myself these days. When your newborn arrives into the world their skin can be very sensitive. It’s great to purchase some clothing that is gentle and kind to their babies skin.

Organic Mums and Bubs provides a wide range of adorable organic baby clothes that are suitable for your newborn no matter what the occasion. Weather you just want to dress your bundle of joy up for visitors, a special occasion or just for them to relax at home in this boutique has you covered. Some of my personal favourites from the site is the Bubbazimbi range and My Lilly Ann hand painted clothing.

 

A comfort toy or blanket for your baby

It is up to you as a parent if you choose to use this method. I believe that giving my babies a comfort toy or blanket has really helped them to settle them to sleep no matter where they are put down to rest. A little tip though is to have a few comforters on the go. I always have one in the cot, one in the pram and one in the car. That way if one is misplaced there is always back up available.

I love Natures Purest – Striped Knitted Bunny Soft Toy and Natures Purest – Striped Knitted Baby Blanket.

Organic Skincare for Mother and Baby

As a mum I really want the best for my babies. I am amazed that so many baby skin care products are filled with nasty harmful chemicals and an ingredients list that goes on forever with words I cannot even say. I am a registered nurse and when studying anatomy and physiology I learnt that the skin is the largest organ in the body. It absorbs want we put on it so quickly into our bodies. Our new babies skin is so precious so especially in the little ones early days I think its important to be aware of what I use on their skin. So I keep my babies and my own skin products to a minimal or organic.

I love Aromababy Barrier Nappy Rash Cream Balm I have used this since Cruz was a newborn its such a great product. It also doubles as a great lip balm haha.

#showtherealyou Caroline Fenton AKA @avidivababy

It has been lovely having a little break from blogging but my gosh I have missed it. I truly enjoy writing, even though I have never been great at it. My teachers always said that I write exactly how I talk haha. True, but that's the beauty of blogging, you write in the style you want too, it's your blog.

One of the segments on my blog that I truly love sharing with you all is my #showtherealyou segment where I get to feature some amazing people and interview them about themselves. I learn so much from these inspiring people.

So this week I am kicking back off the #showtherealyou feature with the gorgeous Caroline Fenton. Caroline is a cappuccino loving women (as am I), that is a wife to her hubby Tony, a mumma to a handsome little boy Alfie, a wifey and a business owner to the most adorable mums and bubs online store @avidivababy.

So put your feet up with your hot drink of choice and take 10minutes to sit down and read about this gorgeous women…

CAROLINE FENTON…

Favourite hot drink? 

Definitely coffee. A good hot frothy cappuccino, the more choc powder sprinkles the better.

Can you tell me who the REAL Caroline Fenton is? 

The REAL me!? Well that’s a question!! I am a Brit, living in Perth with my hubby, our little boy Alfie (now 2.5yo!) and our cat, Tony. We’ve been in Aus for 9 years… after living in Brisbane and Port Hedland, we’ve finally settled (well, maybe!) in Perth. My background is in Psychology and Marketing but I have also been an English Teacher, a Project Manager, an Exec Assistant, and now a mummy! Being a SAHM, I wanted to start up something that was for me, and that is how Avidiva came about.

 

I love a good café, and a breaky out and ending the day on the sofa with Lindt and Netflix. I love the outdoors, exploring and travelling – all things I don’t do enough of these days! I love cooking but go through phases as to how much I do, and also how well we eat!! If I’m on my own, I’m mostly found attached to my laptop… otherwise, you’ll find me picnicking in the park with my boy!

 

Tell me about a day in the life of Caroline?

For the last few months, this looks like… being woken up by Alfie at some crazy hour (I try not to accept anything before 6am from him!!). We then have a few tantrums over cold feet (but not wanting socks on!) and which bowl is acceptable to eat weetbix from, and which one of 20 spoons will be ok to use! We usually put some tunes on, have a cup of tea, and then get ready for the day. If it’s a daycare day, then I pack up our bags (me with my laptop!) and get out the door asap… drop the little tinker off, then head to yoga. Sometimes a coffee with a friend, or a biz catch up, then back home or chill out in a café to work, email, blog, post social media content, source suppliers, update the site, run ads…you name it! A trip to the post office before daycare pick up, then home for the usual dinner, bath, bed routine before collapsing on the sofa!

 

What drove you to create your business @avidivababy?

My little boy was born early at 30 weeks (my membranes ruptured at 22 weeks), so between that and his NICU stay, we spent almost 6 months living at the hospital. A crazy and scary time. Pretty emotional and super tiring! My start to mum life was not the best. As we gradually got used to each other, the anxiety, and the sleepless nights, I decided I wanted to do something for myself that wasn’t ‘being mum’ and also something that could reach out and connect with other mamas. I have created an ever evolving collection of beautiful (I think!) and all natural products for bubs, and am working on creating our community through The Mum Collective too I wanted to raise a bit of awareness and an easy way to shop natural alternatives, being so important for vulnerable little ones. Not with a big agenda, or any huge eco conscience… just a place for mums to source stylish, natural products and for friends to gift too.

Winter Rose with her Finn & Emma Rattle Lovie KELLAN ELEPHANT comfort toy (pictured above).

Winter Rose with some of the natural balms Avidiva have to offer to help your little one sleep and be calm you and relax (pictured below).

We love using Kiss Ready Baby Natural Relax Balm and Badger Balm ORGANIC BABY BALM.

 

What advice would you give to other people out there wanting to start a new business? 

To go for it! It is so rewarding. You learn so much. It’s great fun wearing all the different hats. It is also by no means easy, it’s not a money fixer and it’s not without hard work. If you are able to, or have the opportunity to, then it really is a great experience! Find something that makes your heart happy and give it the best shot you can…

 

What is your favourite quote or mantra? 

Ooooh… maybe ‘don’t let anyone dull your sparkle’. It can be applied to everything and a lovely reminder to just be who we are, exactly as we are!

 

How often do you find the time to move your body? 

I used to be a BIG fitness fan. I would run almost every morning, and teach Les Mills classes at the local gym. I would run half marathons, and triathlons, swim in my lunch break… loved it all!! After pregnancy complications and not such great health, I cut back completely and forced myself to take it easy. Plenty of walks for me! Nowadays I am a little bit obsessed with yoga (something I never had the time for pre bub!). We get out on walks and bike rides as a family, but no crazy gym classes for me!

 

Favourite activewear?

Just leggings and a tee – simple here!

 

Something you practice daily? 

Eating chocolate, tee hee! I try to get to yoga as much as I can.

 

What does self love mean to you? 

Just listening to your body. Not pushing yourself or beating yourself up. Not trying to be all things, or something you are not. Taking time to enjoy the little things.

Thank you so much for taking the time to share with us all a little more about yourself and your family Caroline.

Ava Lola Organics – The Pregnancy Box. 

I recently received a wonderful gift box from Ava Lola Orgnaics. To my surprise it wasn’t filled with gifts for the new baby, but gifts for me? I felt oh so special and I thought to myself it is just what a tired pregnant mumma needs – some mumma metime and pampering. 

A box filled with pampering goodies for a pregnant mumma.

Inside this box of goodies was some great organic skin care products that were safe to use during pregnancy.

 It is filled some brands and products I had heard of, however some new ones that I have now became a huge fan of. It’s was great to trial all the new brands, but I loved that you received the actual size samples of the products #winning. 


I think it is such a great gift idea for any expecting mumma for her baby shower or a congratulations president, as the bubba seems to be the one that gets spoilt. You could simply just #treatyourself too haha. You totally deserve the luxe relaxing time fir yourself, especially because you are the one growing the bubba and that can take its toll on your mind and body. 

Inside The Pregnancy Box is 

Mama Body Tea Pregnancy OR Morning Wellness Tea 28 serves 

Harvest Bliss Mama & Baby Milk Bath 100g

Tiny Tonics Stretch Mark Oil 125ml

Harvest Bliss Peppermint Foot Soak 30g


Harvest Bliss Milk Bath for Mumma and Baby and Peppermint Foot Soak
Mama Body Tea Pregnancy Tea and Tiny Tonics Stretch Mark Oil

Below are some images of me using the products as I genuinely love trailing everything I am sent. I did use some of the products with Cruzie included in the relax/metime as sometimes it’s just how it is. While he played with his toys in the bath I would be relaxing my sore legs and bump. I loved  sitting back relaxing and just enjoyed watching him learn new things. Multitasking right? 

Enjoying a Milk Bath with Cruzie Poozie.

Massaging the bump 🤰

Enjoying the foot soak. It’s pure bliss 🙏🏼💕
Sipping on pregnancy tea and having a read.
 

I highly recommend The Pregnancy Box to other expecting mummas, as I used every single one of the products provided in the box, I made sure of it. Haha. Can I get another? 🙋🏼

Thank you again for taking the time to read my review on such a gorgeous  gift box. I look forward to purchasing these for my expecting mumma friends, as they all deserve a bit of pampering.


You can purchase the The Pregnancy Box or other beautiful gift boxes, for either yourself or an expecting mumma online at www.avalolaorganics.com.au.

#aliceloves Eco Tan feat. Bloembee Blooms

Thank you to everyone that read, commented and loved, last weeks #aliceloves mini Instagram & blog segment featuring Krew Active Cleo Express Feeder and a Posy of Bloembee Blooms. Your support means the world to me.

This week I am excited to be reviewing the Eco Tan’s Pink Himalayan Salt Scrub and Winter Skin Self Tanning Lotion

Firstly a little about Eco Tan...

Eco Tan was created in 2011 by the founder Sonya Driver. Sonya’s sister was diagnosed with skin cancer caused by the harmful Australian suns UV rays. They both wanted to still get a tan, but without the harm of the dangerous UV rays. They decided to get spray tans together instead of tanning in the sun, soon realising that the ingredients in most of the tans on the market were just as harmful to the skin and the body, as the skin is the bodies largest organ. So Sonya started  experimenting with natural and organic ingredients in her home on the Gold Coast. In 2011, Eco Tan made Australian history by becoming the first and only tanning manufacturer to be certified organic by the Organic Food Chain under the Australian government. How amazing is that?

 

Pink Himalayan Salt Scrub

As a pregnant mumma, I am super cautious about what products I put on my skin. I like to stick to all natural and organic ingredients where possible, causing as less harm to my baby as possible. Plus I want to look after myself too. I found out about this Pink Himalayan salt scrub about 3 months ago and have been using it ever since. I have shared my love for this product on my Instagram and social media platforms. I love it.

You apply a small amount of the scrub in your hands and work your way around your dry body rubbing it in a clockwise motion. Its smells of coconut, peppermint and lemongrass, argh its actually divine. I even use it as an exfoliator on my face. I like to spend a little more time on my bottom, thighs, elbows and knees. I leave it on for 5 minutes so my skin soaks up the moisture from the coconut oil. Then i just jump in the shower like normal and rinse it off. It leaves a light oil coat behind on your skin, leaving it feeling amazing! If I am going to tan with the Winter Skin I normally do this process the day before tanning.

Using the scrub on my bump!
Winter Skin Self Tanning Lotion

While I am pregnant I still have special events that I have to attend. I want to glow and feel my absolute best. So I have been using the Winter Skin gradual tan lotion, the night before an event. If I want to be darker I will just do two coats, one two nights before and the other the night before. I find one is enough for me as I don’t like it to dark. I highly recommend this beauty product, it truly moisturises your skin and leaves such a beautiful colour behind. I am obsessed, I know you will be to.

Wearing Eco Tan Winter Skin, one application.

I sometimes use this lotion when I am feeling a little drained, nothing like a bit of tan to make you feel good about yourself. I am so so please I have found an amazing product and can still hug my babes, knowing its not harmful to their skin either.

 

Both of these products I have reviewed, will now be staples in my beauty routine from now on. I love them both so much. I look forward to purchasing some more of Sonya’s Eco skincare products in the near future.

A special thank you to @bloembee for collaborating with me on this little #aliceloves project of mine. In this weeks Posy of blooms we had lisianhus, fresia, snapdragon and greenery,

Bloembee provides a posy of blooms, delivered to the Brisbane area from just $30.

#showtherealyou Rebecca Carr AKA @becbodymindsoul

So excited to introduce to you all Rebecca Carr. 

I first met Bec at White Bohemian when I was working in store. She used to come in store as a customer and one day we really got chatting about her passion and that is naturopathy, yoga and meditation. This naturally beautiful woman glowed health to me, and I was always so interested to know more about her lifestyle. 

When Bec decided to start her Instagram I was so pleased as she shares so many useful holistic health and wellbeing tips, her knowledge about yoga and meditation and some delicious nourishing recipes with her followers. 

I was so over the moon when she said yes to being apart of my #showtherealyou feature as I know you will love knowing more about this holistic goddess too. 

Sit down and put your feet up. Enjoy the interview with Rebecca Carr AKA @becbodymindspirit

Favorite hot drink?

My fave hot drink at the moment is a Turmeric late. I make my own just before I go to bed & I find it really soothing & nourishing. Turmeric contains a compound called curcumin, a substance with powerful anti-inflammatory & antioxidant properties. I love to think of my food & drinks as medicine & this is one that I like to include in my day.

Can you tell me who the real Bec is?

Hi my name is Bec, I live on the Southern end of the beautiful Gold Coast with my husband Colin and our three children Sienna -Rose (7), Xander (5) and Hunter(3). I am passionate about holistic health & healing, Yoga & meditation & living a positive lifestyle. I have always been interested in health since I was a teenager & that naturally lead me to study Naturopathy. I have been working as a Naturopath for most of my adult life & I love helping people improve their health & wellbeing.

I am currently consulting from the Golden Door Health Club Main Beach. Where I work 2-3 days a week. I find this is a good balance for me with family life.

I am also a Yoga Teacher & enjoy teaching private lessons from home or the beach. Yoga keeps me calm, centered & grounded. Instead of reaching for a glass of wine to chill out I grab my mat & bliss out. Often with Hunter jumping all over me or trying his best at down ward dog.

I have also been fortunate to learn Qigong meditation and this has really helped me to cope with the pressures & busyness of being a mum, juggling daily life and work.

We live near the beach, & being outdoors is a big part of our lifestyle The beaches are amazing & you will often find me there. It might be for an early morning run & swim ( total bliss ) or on an afternoon walk with the children & the dog.

To keep a good balance with family, home life & work I try to keep the rest of our life pretty simple. We go to the beach, to the creek, we love going to Byron Bay to a great place called the farm, we have yearly passes to crystal castle & the wildlife sanctuary & we go for road trips to waterfalls & the hinterlands. Balance is super important in living a healthy, happy life. Something that I am working towards daily. When I realized that everything doesn’t have to be perfect…that its perfect just the way it is…I started to let go & enjoy my life more.

Tell me about a day in the life of Bec?

Ok, so again with trying to create a balanced life, my hubby Colin & I have alternate training mornings or ‘me time’ mornings & this works out great for us. On a training day I will wake up at 5.45am & go for a soft sand run along the beach for about 5 kms. I may have a dip in the ocean or sit for 10 minutes & meditate. So by this time I’m feeling super proud of myself for getting out of bed & really pumped for a great day. It really sets the energy of the day for me. I will then come home and be tackled by 3 little ones and then make breaky. At the moment I’m enjoying apple cidar vinegar in a glass of warm water followed by my Green Goddess Smoothie. This is loaded with green veges so my body is getting a lot of nutrients & nourishment to start the day.

If it’s a work day I will take the kids to school & kindy and then will go to work. I will always take a nutritious lunch to give me the energy to get through the day. I like to take left overs as its easy to make extra the night before. I also drink plenty of water and herbal tea throughout the day to ensure I stay well hydrated. After I have seen all my lovely clients its time to go and pick the kiddies up from school & kindy.

If it’s not a work day Hunter & I will hang out. This is our special time together while Sienna Rose & Xander are at school. We will keep it simple & go to the beach or park and take a picnic with nourishing healthy food.

I try to keep after school activities to a minimum as this keep the stress down. There is a lot to do with 3 kids as they all have their different needs & they all want my attention. Dinner, bath, bed this is such a busy time of the day for me. AHHH im feeling stressed just writing about it haha.

Then there is me time…Yay! I will practice Yoga, eat a light nutritious dinner, chat with my hubby, meditate ( Colin also did the Qigong course so we meditate together ), one of my biggest luxuries since having kids is to have a long hot shower in peace. I will often light a candle in the bathroom and have some nice organic products to use, this time is a real pamper time for me. Before I go to sleep I like to read, usually only a few pages. And then in comes Hunter…and there is three in the bed!

We will have a date night or date afternoon every couple of weeks where we will go to the beach without the kids and then go for an early dinner. This is our special time together to connect.

I have 1 day to myself each week & I use this time to do something that will nourish my mind, body & soul. I usually have an acupuncture appointment & then go to a Yoga class and finish with a nourishing lunch. I look forward do this day so much & I feel refreshed, recharged & ready for another great week.


What drove you to create your Instagram account?

I started my Instagram account the same time I started working at the Golden Door Health club. It was a way I could connect with like- minded people. My mission is to inspire, empower & motivate others towards optimum health & wellbeing.

You have a big following of amazing women,  what do you think attracts women to your social media platforms?

I think that the fact that I’m showing the real me in day to day life with my children is something that women can relate to. I am a positive person, I enjoy life, I am obsessed with feeling great so my hope is that I can inspire other women towards greater health & vitality. The meals that I post are simple, tasty & nutritious and easy to make. Healthy food doesn’t have to be boring. I love chocolate as do most women & I think it’s something we can all enjoy. If its raw & made with natural ingredients & love our body is getting a lot of health benefits. I buy all organic food and use only wholefood natural ingredients. It’s very important to me that my children are growing up eating super healthy food as they are growing little bodies & they need it the most. I like to teach them from an early age what is healthy food, about vitamins & why their body needs it. So it becomes part of the norm for them.


You are a mumma and you have your own business? How do you manage the balance between the two.

Finding the balance for me means being organized, prioritizing what is really important, letting go of all the stuff that isn’t, having quality time with myself, my husband and each of my kids.


What is your favourite quote or daily mantra?

I have lots but the one that resonates with me at the moment is

‘I am a warrior not a worrier’


How often do you find time to move your body?

I love to move my body every day. Even when the children where babies I would have all them 3 of them on the stroller going for a walk or run. Now it’s a luxury to

go on the beach by myself in the morning. If I don’t run I will do yoga at home or go to a class once or twice a week.

Something you practice daily for self love?

Is Yoga & meditation. It’s a self love practice for my body mind & soul. It may be a dynamic practice if I have the energy or a soothing yin practice if im tired. Ive learned over the years to listen to what my body needs, to nourish rather than push and that sometimes…less is more.


What is your favourite piece of active wear in your current wardrobe?

Are my dharma bums yoga pants. They are bright & colourful & make me feel happy. They are also lightweight & super comfy.

Go to healthy recipe?

I am just loving my Green Goddess smoothie for breaky at the moment ( recipe on my Insta page ). Its packed with vitamins, minerals, healthy fats, fibre. Its also hydrating, alkalizing and a wonderful gut healer.

You can find Bec’s recipe for the smoothie HERE

What advice would you give to other people out there wanting to start a blog/business?

Find your passion, follow your heart & be yourself! Your vibe will attract your tribe x

Runners or Heels?

Runners, heels are a lifetime ago haha! 

Thank you so much for reading.

Bib & Spoon – “the way baby food should be”

Just 10 days ago the amazing Clare & Danny (creators of Bib & Spoon), dropped off a package to my front door step. Inside the package was the delicious goodness of organic and chemical free, made with love, toddler food for Cruzie. Wow this couldn’t of came at a better time in our lives.

The toddler meals came stored in a conveniently packaged container, which you could stack and store in the freezer. The baby purées came in easy to store, resealable bags. Reading the ingredients on these meals I was blown away. It was all just good food for my little guy to eat. No additives and no chemicals. Tick tick.

Now you all know I love creating all my food for Cruz as I love to know what’s in it (except when his Aunties or grandparents look after him). So I was very pleased to know that these frozen meals were filled with the goodness I would personally give to my son. Plus life gets so crazy at times that I can honestly say, that grabbing something that is healthy for your child, straight from your freezer, can certainly come in handy st times and a win win for us parents too (especially when you are in a rush to get your little babe down for the night).

Clare and Danny are the Brisbane based, creators of Bib & Spoon.  They are the parents to beautiful twin girls, Olivia and Hannah. They were on the hunt for delicious, fresh produced meals for their babes and could not seem to find anywhere that sourced these type of meals. So they got an idea,  teamed up with a dietitian, who then helped to make their dream become a reality. They are now helping out busy mummy and daddy’s and feeding the mouths of lots of hungry baby and toddlers around Australia. Congratulations to you both for chasing your dreams and making it work. So inspiring!

After a busy rainy day, this meal was enjoyed by Cruzie as he loved all the bits in it. Mummy even got fed a few teaspoons!
Shell bolognese. A winner! (Even I licked the spoon).
Cruzie enjoying his little toddler meals.
Perfect to stack in the freezer. Just poor ingredients straight into the saucepan to heat.
A favourite purée of ours, we add it to our bolognese sauce for the whole family!

Even though the purées state 6 and 8 months, sneaking extra fruit and vegetables into our little picky, toddlers food, is a cheeky way to give them the extra goodness in their diet and bulk up their daily intake with the natural vitamins and minerals they require to grow!

Below is a little idea you can do with the pre made purées.

Zucchini & Pear Oats

Zucchini and Pear Oats 



Ingredients 

1cup almond milk
