{ KIDS } DIY MESSY PLAY & LOCAL MELBOURNE CLASSES

{ KIDS } DIY MESSY PLAY & LOCAL MELBOURNE CLASSES > I’d love to say I’m back at it – getting down and dirty that is… But sadly not. Bending down just to shave my legs is a full 30min exercise right now. SO, I set-up some pregnant-friendly messy play yesterday and we totes GOT […]

{ OUR BABY SHOWER } STYLING & ALL THE SWEET STUFF

{ OUR BABY SHOWER } STYLING & ALL THE SWEET STUFF > “A RAINBOW BABY is the understanding that the beauty of a rainbow does not negate the ravages of the storm. When a rainbow appears, it doesn’t mean the storm never happened or that the family is still not dealing with the aftermath. What […]

PACKING YOUR HOSPITAL BAG (ROUND TWO!)

SISJ KIDS – PACKING YOUR HOSPITAL BAG (ROUND TWO!) > So, I’ve had close to a ba-jillion requests for a revised ‘what to pack post’ – you ask, I DELIVER. Not really, I just think I’m maybe 17% more qualified to share my advice this time, considering I’ve done it all before. This is what worked/didn’t […]

STYLING THE BUMP: MATERNITY & NON-MATERNITY FASHION

STYLING THE BUMP: MATERNITY & NON-MATERNITY FASHION > This is my third pregnancy, so I’d like to think of myself as a seasoned professional in the styling the bump department! All three times I have worn a combination of maternity and non-maternity clothes, and for all three trimesters. You do not need to spend a […]

{ THE MIND F*%$ } PREGNANCY AFTER LOSS

{ THE MIND F*%$ } PREGNANCY AFTER LOSS > I struggle daily with feeling such pure happiness and such dark, heart-wrenching grief simultaneously. It’s an absolute MIND F*%$, to put it simply. It’s exhausting, it’s confusing and it gets harder and easier all at once. I am now 23.5 weeks in and in a GREAT […]

{ HAMILTON ISLAND } FAMILY TRAVEL WITHIN AUSTRALIA

{ HAMILTON ISLAND } FAMILY TRAVEL WITHIN AUSTRALIA > I had all these grand plans to post about our trip to Hamilton Island over the Christmas and new year period, but then life got in the way – like six months worth of life and growing a baby, SOZ! I am also in the midst of […]

WE’RE {FINALLY} PREGNANT WITH OUR RAINBOW BABY!

WE’RE {FINALLY} PREGNANT WITH OUR RAINBOW BABY! Due October 2018 SOMEWHERE OVER THE RAINBOW, SKIES ARE BLUE, AND THE DREAMS THAT YOU DARE TO DREAM REALLY DO COME TRUE… It’s been 488 days since we lost Charlotte Rose. In that time: I’ve watched them take away my baby girl to be cremated, I’ve cried a […]

MIA GRACE TURNS THREE

MIA GRACE TURNS THREE > “The most precious jewels you’ll ever have around your neck are the arms of your children” – Cardinal Mermillod. Well… I SURVIVED hosting MG’s third birthday party at home and no one filed for divorce – phew! Maaaaaate, it’s taken my body three days to recover! I’m too old for […]

A THOUGHT FOR THOSE ON BEREAVED MOTHER’S DAY

A THOUGHT FOR THOSE ON INTERNATIONAL BEREAVED MOTHER’S DAY > Sunday 6th May 2018 “WE DO NOT RETURN TO WHO WE ONCE WERE AFTER THE LOSS OF A CHILD, WE BEGIN A SECOND LIFE”… There’s definitely been many, many times over the last fifteen months where I’ve described my ‘current self’ as a shadow of […]

DIY BIRTHDAY PARTY GOODIE BAGS

#MUMLIFE – DIY BIRTHDAY PARTY GOODIE BAGS > My name is Sarah Jane and I am a crafter. That legit sounds weird and suspicious, but it’s the truth. I’m like a hardcore gamer, but with pretty pink paint, glitter and anything sparkly. I can’t be stopped, and it seems my little MG has inherited this same […]
