are you a sneakerhead?

Autumn is here, winter is coming… And that means a wardrobe update! This year it’s all about the sneaker for us. We still love our boots, but to be practical, as mamas who still want to look stylish, it’s sneakers all the way.

Last year Liza switched between a very old pair of pink Adidas trainers and an apple green pair of Reeboks, but this winter it’s time for an update. Emily’s just bought a pair of Supergas (see below) and she can’t believe it took her so long. They have barely left her feet since. She wears them with everything from jeans to office-style LBDs – basically her wardrobe has been revolutionised, in fact her entire ‘look’ on a day-to-day basis. Liza is still on the hunt!

What’s your favourite pair and how do you wear them?

autumn is my favourite

Don’t you just love this time of year? The insistent South Easter suddenly dissipates. Leaves turn into beautiful shades of red and orange. Evenings are still and calm, perfect for lightweight coats and pumps. Daytime is just the right temperature and not too hot for your favourite denims. Sunsets and sunrises seem to be more spectacular. Oats with cinnamon and honey is the ideal breakfast. And toasted hot cross buns with butter, of course. Autumn is definitely my favourite season, what’s yours?

autumn mornings

Even though I’m not the greatest of morning persons, I do love the mornings and the possibilities that a new day holds. Robbie usually wakes up at around 6am (sometimes as early as 5), and that’s when our day begins. He gets his bottle on the couch and I make my coffee so I can sit with him while he drinks and just enjoy a few minutes of peace and quiet and the beautiful sun streaming in through the windows before the mad rush begins. Then it’s getting Bailey ready for school (eat, dress, brush teeth!), feeding Chuck, making school lunch, feeding Robbie his porridge, waving goodbye to Bailey… and suddenly it’s quiet again.

Robbie will then mission around the house for another half hour or so before his morning nap. Often he’ll ransack Bailey’s room – much easier to do when she’s not around – or he’ll toss sand out the pot plants (naughty), pull the toys off his shelves in his room, chase his ‘ball-y’, play with the wheels on his skateboard, head outside to the garden. And every few minutes he’ll come over to give me kisses and cuddles. Such a sweet boy this one.
