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.

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

TMJ Loves

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

by Emmy

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.

Mama Crush: Whitney from The Wife Life

by Emmy

I love being happy and I love bright colours. Happy bright colours are what made me fall in love with Whitney’s @thewifelife Instagram feed.  I adore Whitney’s positive outlook on life and her amazing eclectic styling. Her photography and writing is creative and inspirational.  Whitney’s two girls Luella and Emmy have the most divine bedrooms and are some of my favourite babes to stalk on IG.

Anne Hill Design The Merge Journal

by Deanna

I have had a major mama crush on Anne since I came across her Instagram feed just before we both announced we were having our second child. She makes me want to pack my winter woolies and escape to the mountains and the snow.  Her two children; Eli and Isabelle (who’s middle name is ‘Snow’ by the way – is that not the prettiest thing ever?) are adorable and can often be found in the arms of their parents, while the family hike through the hills and spend quality time together outside. Anne’s photos always bring a sense of calm to me. Read on to learn a little more about this beautiful being, and her love and connection with nature (that is, after you’ve jumped over to Instagram (@annehilldesign) to check her out and fall in love with her, just like I did …)

Paulina Eaborn (IG @mrs_paulie_) is the mama bear of three adorable boys; Tyson, Rixen and Leon. Her feed is filled with adorable photos of her boys, their beautiful hair and their gigantic smiles. Paulina inspired women to hit the pavements and run all around the world during her latest pregnancy with her #nevernotrunning philosophy; (I may have even started running again this year thanks to this beautiful mama, only 8 minutes but still it’s running). She was one of the first people I ever started following on Instagram way back in 2013 and I love her keeping it real, shit happens, move every day & always have a smile on your face attitude.  Paulina is also the owner of The Little Vikings & creator of the Pray4Trax necklace; which is now a well-known symbol of spreading awareness of Cystic Fibrosis. These babies sell like hot cakes and every restock I try to add to my growing collection. She is my original mama crush.

Jules is a new mum to a divine little girl named Emmison. She’s a no nonsense kinda mama. I fell in love with her because she is so open about motherhood and all that it entails. She shares her life on Instagram (@newmumstheword) from a very honest perspective, and isn’t afraid to show you a little baby puke. My mornings generally start with a giggle over her hilarious witty captions and funny faces. If you haven’t checked her out (and you’re currently parenting a small child), you probably should. You can thank me later. Here’s her answering, in her very honest way, our fave 20 questions:
