Mama Crush: Amy Osmanhodzic

TMJ Loves

by Deanna

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 …

INTERVIEW WITH SARAH FROM SQUIRREL HOUSE

Oh I love me some cute wooden beaded necklaces, bracelets and anklets with tassels. I also love seeing those adorable photos of mama and babes (always with a cup of tea) laying in bed with matching tie-dye socks! It’s one of my IG bucket list photos to get with Isla; (though I have to be honest I’ve always wondered how do mamas take that photo and how do they not spill the tea?)

Self care what?

Life

by Emmy

Everything in the room was styled to perfection. Hanging foliage from the ceiling. Candles and flowers on the low table; which was surrounded by the softest sheep-skin mats and crisp white walls (I’m a sucker for white walls). It was literally like I had walked into a pinterest board. I was in love.

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.

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 Chelsea Vance partyofthree TMJ Loves The Merge Journal

by Emmy

I have been crushing on Chelsea and her beautiful boy Hudson for some time now. When I say crushing, I mean I ALWAYS have to go and stalk (ahem check) her Instagram profile. Her feed is magical.  Actually it is amazing balls!  Crisp, clear photos, filled with her handsome boy just chilling, whilst in the background there are mountains, lakes and snow. Huge snow capped mountains. Her feed makes me long for outdoor adventures and reminds me of my love to be exploring in nature. Basically I want to move to Alaska and dress my two babes up head to toe in knitted bonnets and booties. If you aren’t following @partyforthree do yourselves a favour; it will make you long for winter, hot chocolates, oh and that white magical snow.
