Mama Crush: Ina Odak

by Emmy 

Whenever I have a take-away coffee in my hand and cute lil boots on I think of Ina from @sneakersandsoul. I mean she makes getting a takeaway coffee seem like the coolest thang ever! Carefree, empowering and inspiring would be how I describe Ina. I love the way she is a total boss of her life, oozes grace, sass & effortless style, but at the same time is so freaking down-to-earth I kind of just want to run away with her! Major #mumcrush over here.

Mama Crush: Jo Lorenz

There are a few daily necessities in my life… drinking coffee & checking in with  @jo_lorenz‘s Instagram feed. I mean talk about priorities! Oh-so-stunning mama Jo, sure knows how to make a swoon worthy IG feed.  She is the digital content creator queen, she oozes style & she is fabulously hilarious! For all things fashion, family, lifestyle and travel be sure to check out her website. Full disclosure if you are not already following Jo, I suggest making a cup of tea/coffee or having a wine, and then putting a few hours aside so you can scroll (ahem stalk) her STUNNING feed and website! (You can thank me later).

Ok. We’re just going to put this out there. All four of us mamas have had a HUGE crush on the beautiful Amy, for what feels like forever. And when she jumped onto our screens with that birth video, well, we soon amped up our ‘crush’ to full on ‘love affair’. Amy is mama to three divine little beings, and a hypnobirthing teacher and birth doula, founding Earthbound Babies. She has recently moved her family from Perth over to the Byron Bay hinterland, and we couldn’t be happier. Now living that little bit closer, we hope to meet in person one day soon, so we can goo and gaa over her beautiful children, and her gorgeous smile. Did we mention her husband plays guitar and can sing? Yes, you can officially start crushing now too. Read on to find out more about this amazing mama …

Mama Crush: Bethany Marsh

by Deanna

I have had a huge mama crush on Bethany for quite some time now. I think I started following her on Instagram when I was pregnant with my second. She is a beautiful, boho hearted mama to Willow and Jagger, and one of my favourite things about her is how truly honest she is, but sweet-natured too. You may know her on Instagram as blossomandboheme, but I know her as that awesome Brisbane mama, who has a really cool wardrobe and two incredibly cute little babes.

7 Ways to Re-use Your Mama Maya Wrap

by Emmy

Us TMJ Mamas are having a major crush on founder Robyn and her beautiful Mama Maya Wraps. Not only is the design minimalistic and stylish; these wraps are also organic, fair-trade AND for every single wrap purchased, Mama Maya works with Birthing Kit Foundation Australia; providing a safe birth for a mother in a developing country.

My youngest babe is currently out of ‘swaddles’ for sleeping, but I love that there are so many different uses and ways to continue to use my Mama Maya wrap. Here are some of my favourite uses:

Her Instagram feed is divine, she is divine, and her two little girls are divine. Amanda invites us all into her beautiful world via her bright, and perfectly framed pics. From matching outfits to the sweetest pics of both of her girls in their highchairs, and adorable ‘family of four’ pics with her hubs, we all have a huge Mama Crush on Amanda. She is the sweetest, kindest, soul, and I couldn’t wait to read her answers to our fave 20 questions:

Mama Crush: Julie Mishakov

by Deanna

Today’s mama crush is the ever beautiful Julie (based in America), who is mama to gorgeous babe Nina, and wifey to a very talented ‘baby balancing on one hand pic’ husband. Her Instagram feed is an almost magical place where grocery aisles come alive (and look pretty!) with divine shots of her little Nina helping her choose items; and where library shelves are celebrated. She makes it feel like you’re there right beside her gorgeous little family, living everyday life with them. Whether it’s picnics in the parks, walks in nature, napping on the couch, or playroom tea parties,  life in the Mishakov family looks sweet and inviting. Especially that divine baby swing in their living room! We asked Julie our fave mama crush questions, and delved into her charming world …

Mama Crush: Peta Stinson

by Emmy

This week’s mama crush is a huge inspiration to me. Peta Stinson is a mama of three and owner of Sapling Child; a clothing label for babes that specialises in 100% organic cotton. I think one of the things I love most about Peta is her passion for creating a clothing line for babes, which is not just organic, but is also made fair trade. Not only are Sapling Child fabrics 100% organic, they also use organic water based dyes in all of their collections. The new season’s Flight Collection also has some important design changes, such as double stitching – meaning more durability, allowing you to pass on your Sapling Child clothes from one generation to the next. I love me some sustainable & eco-conscious fashion, which is also designed to last a lifetime.

Sapling Child also has a GIVING BACK program were they work with an Orphanage in India. This year they will also be focusing on maternal and neo-natal health. Everyday I feel so incredibly blessed to have access to life’s essentials like health care for myself and my babes. I often bombarded with lots of sadness with what is happening around the world, but when I think about Peta and the positive way she is running her business, I am truly inspired. I loved getting to know the beautiful Peta Stinson and love her even more now knowing that we share the same favourite summer beverage!

Mama Crush: Christy from Little Maggie Moo

I’m totally mama crushing on Christy (Personal IG @myminimoo); graphic designer + maker over @littlemaggiemoo. Her daily adventures with her daughter Maggie aka Mini Moo inspire me to get outside; get moving, start exploring & drink a milkshake along the way! I adore the beautiful mother / daughter relationship between Christy & Maggie. She’s a rocking single mama who makes me strive to live in the moment & always count my blessings. Oh & Christy also has the best style – she dresses her Mini Moo like a total rockstar; think tutus & gumboots.
