As the end of the year draws near I am secretly getting excited about getting back in shape in the new year, I have a wardrobe full of pre-baby clothes I can’t wait to wear again. As you can probably imagine delivering a 4.6kg baby was no easy task, recovery has been slow and unfortunately I am yet to get the doctor’s tick of approval to start exercising again. It has been almost three months since Ted was born and thankfully I am feeling a bit stronger every day so I am slowly picking up the pace with the help of Maze Activewear:

Designed for new, pregnant and breastfeeding mothers of all shapes and sizes Maze Activewear offers stylish, high quality activewear that is both practical and flattering. I am a bit disappointed that I only discovered this awesome label after Ted was born as I am loving this supportive yet comfy sports gear!

Most expecting mums will know that it is important to stay active during pregnancy, but at the same time your changing body and that rapidly growing bump can leave you feeling a bit out of balance and unsure. Don’t worry mama, Maze Activewear will help you feel confident and supported in all the right places with their fabulous over-the-belly Maternity Tights (RRP $79.95-$89.95, size XS – L).

Featuring a breathable and seam-free tummy panel that grows with you as your baby belly grows, stability power mesh that will make you strong and steady and hi-tech performance fabric these tights are your ultimate exercise buddy. They are available in both full length and a shorter 3/4 length and come in a range of neutral colours to compliment all your favourite workout gear.

Once baby has arrived most mamas will find their new body will take some getting used to, after 6 babies my body most certainly isn’t bouncing back the way celebrities seem to do! The Maze Activewear High Waisted 3/4 Tights (RRP $49.95, size XS-L) do a fantastic job keeping all those wobbly bits in place while the Active Core Stability technology provides much needed support for this poor mummy tummy which has had quite the beating. Added bonus: A handy zip pocket at the back to keep your gym pass or keys safe and mesh panels on the lower leg for extra air flow.

Whether I am at home or out and about and whether I am relaxing or working out, our big boy counts on easy nursing access. With the Nursing Sports Bra (RRP $59, size XS-L) you can get fit and feed at the same time, easy drop-down cups allow for convenient breastfeeding (and a nursing pad if desired) while the powerful nylon/spandex/cotton blend will keep you comfortable and supported through your entire training session. The ergonomic racer back design distributes the weight evenly and stops me from getting a sore back and shoulders.

Hip Tip: When you buy the Maternity Tights and Nursing Sports Bra together you get a welcome 15% bundle discount. For an even bigger saving why not join the Maze Activewear mailing list to enjoy an additional 10% discount on your first order, simply enter your email address at the bottom of the home page to receive your discount code in your inbox.

Want to get started on your workout as soon as possible? Make sure you refer to the handy Maze Activewear Size Chart to select the size that is right for you. For extra peace of mind a hassle-free returns and exchange policy is in place.

Breeze into Summer with Eeni Meeni Miini Moh

 Style  Comments Off on Breeze into Summer with Eeni Meeni Miini Moh

Eeni Meeni logo

It may not have been a very wet winter here in South Australia, but it sure has been a cold one! I am very much hanging out for some nice Spring weather to peek around the corner and warm us up a little. After months of layer upon layer of winter clothing (and truckloads of wet washing on drying racks) I am getting super excited at the sight of these breezy summer looks by Australian designer label Eeni Meeni Miini Moh:

It looks like our little ladies are in for a real treat this Summer season, look at those pretty sorbet, coral and aqua blue shades, combined with timeless grey, white and silver. Skirts, shorts, dresses, singlets, tops… Eeni Meeni Miini Moh has your girl’s whole wardrobe covered.

At nearly two Hattie has been promoted from the Enfant collection and can have her pick from the entire Eeni range which means choosing has become even harder. In saying that I can never resist a good stripe and this Pique Dress looks (RRP $59.95, size 12m-5) perfect for adventurous tots. It’s comfortable enough for running, climbing, dancing and even naps, just add some sweet sandals and she’s Summer ready.

Secretly I dread the day our nearly 9-year old twins grow out of the e3-M range (up to 12 years old) and are forced into young adult fashion, but thankfully I have a few more years up my sleeve. They love being active and playing outside, so I think the Racer Top (RRP $39.95, size 2-12) matched with the comfy Classic 5 Short (RRP $64.95, size 2-12) are a perfect pick. Olivia would love the bright Sunset colour and it’s a great look for both play and going out.

Yellow has been Juliet’s number one colour from when she was a cheeky toddler and it still is her first choice now. As today happens to be her 7th birthday I must show you this sunny Frill Dress (RRP $69.95, size 2-12) in cheery Sunkist yellow. How can you not dream of splashing in the pool, yummy ice creams and lazy Summer nights when you see this cute frock? I just love the casual tie-back shoulders, keeping it fun front and back.

I am super chuffed to see my personal fave colour indigo pop up in the new girls collection too, you can never go wrong with a classy blue! The delightful frill sleeves and stunning keyhole back of this gorgeous ‘La Vie Est Belle’ Dress (RRP $89.95, size 12m-5) make it a real winner for birthdays, special celebrations and even Christmas. It’s definitely going on my short-list for miss Sybbie’s 5th birthday in February.

Tommie absolutely lived in his e3-M slouch shorts last summer (in fact, he loved them so much I had to buy a second pair) so I must grab them again for the upcoming season. They are super easy to wash and wear and stay beautiful even after many washes. I know it’s very convenient to play it safe for the boys with plain, neutral colours, but I really love these funky Maldives mint Slouch Shorts (RRP $54.95, size 2-12) mixed with the classic grey and indigo Polo T-shirt (RRP $49.95, size 2-12), cool combi!

Any day now we’ll finally know the gender of baby no.6, so I will have to leave the big newborn shop until then. Thankfully Eeni Meeni Miini Moh has little surprise bundles covered too with the La Petite + Pure newborn range perfect for baby showers and brand new arrivals. Featuring mainly grey and white tones these pieces are timeless and great for mixing and matching. How cute is the star studded La Petite Jumpsuit (RRP $54.95, size 0-3m) with it’s adorable detachable hood?

Eeni Meeni Miini Moh – Sizzling Summer Sale

 Sales & Savings, Style  Comments Off on Eeni Meeni Miini Moh – Sizzling Summer Sale
Feb 162017
 

Eeni Meeni logo

Now that our children are back at school I am finally catching up on long overdue jobs in and around the house. Over the school holidays the kids don’t always keep their wardrobes as tidy as I would like, so it was about time I went through their Summer gear, folded everything neatly and put away the clothes that no longer fit. As expected they have grown heaps over Summer and they could all do with a few more pieces to get them through the last of the warm weather…

Thankfully for our tight family budget the Final Summer Sale has just kicked off at our favourite store Eeni Meeni Miini Moh, and who doesn’t love the sound of half price shopping? You better run, as this awesome sale ends February 21, 2017.

Now I know that there are plenty of gorgeous sale styles to choose from, but if I may put forward a personal favourite it would have to be the gorgeous Ties Dress (was $64.95, now $32.48). Our darling Juliet has been wearing this sweet frock all summer and I am still madly in love with it, plus it washes extremely well.

Eeni Meeni Miini Moh Autumn/Winter 2017 is here!

 Style  Comments Off on Eeni Meeni Miini Moh Autumn/Winter 2017 is here!
Feb 052017
 

Eeni Meeni logo

I won’t lie, I have found this first back-to-school week rather stressful. As a result I *may* have indulged in a bit of online shopping therapy to get me through, please tell me I am not the only one? I love seeing the new Autumn/Winter styles slowly arriving into stores and I can’t wait to get started on the kids’ wardrobes for next season. Need some inspiration? The brand new Eeni Meeni Miini Moh collection has just been released and here are my favourites:

Now that she is a big kindy girl miss Sybil is working very hard at dressing herself in the morning, I think this stripey Boatneck Dress (RRP $64.95, size 12m – 5) would make a fabulous ‘easy’ kindy dress that is soft, comfortable and easy to put on and take off. Just add a pair of tights/leggings to make urgent toilet breaks a breeze too, there’s no time to wrestle with buttons or zips!

At almost 17 months old Harriet is no longer a baby, she’s running around everywhere and turning out to be quite the independent, cheeky toddler. Purple hues look amazing on her, so my pick for her would be the pretty Owl Frill Top in gorgeous Vervain Marle, matched up with the funky Indigo Marle Skegging (RRP $49.95, size 12m – 5). How cute is the ‘left’ and ‘right’ heart detail on the knees? So adorable.

I know that after a whole week in school uniform my girls are always looking forward to putting on something bright, comfortable and girly. Olivia would absolutely love the vibrant ‘lipstick’ hue of the Hoodie Dress (RRP $74.95, size 2-12) , but if your little lady prefers something a bit more subtle the dress is available in black marle too. I think it would make a great outfit for a relaxed winter weekend.

If you were to ask Juliet you can never go wrong with some bright pink and silver shine, take this sweet mix + match combi with the Relaxed Paris TopStriped Skegging (RRP $49.95, size 2-8) and as the star of the show the Silver Foil Gathered Skirt (RRP $69.95, size 2-12). The three styles look amazing together but can also easily be worn with other colours and garments that are already in your child’s wardrobe so you can create a range of different looks.

Last but not least our one and only boy who is growing so fast I can hardly keep up, can you believe he is already wearing the same shoe size as his mum? With the cooler season in mind I think the Gauge Knit Sweater (RRP $79.95, size 2-8) is a great mix of cool and classy. The Mist Marle is neutral yet adds a little touch of colour to an often dark and grey season. Team it up with the super relaxed Dude Pant (RRP $84.95, size 2 -12) and you’ve got yourself a winning combo that is sure to get the thumbs up from your favourite guy.

I may not have a little man to dress right now but that won’t stop me admiring all the stylish new Eeni Meeni boys gear. This season is far from boring with some great bright flashes mixed in with the timeless greys, blue and green tones. I love it when kids are allowed to be kids and can show a bit of spunk and personality through their wardrobe, you’re only young for a little while!

I love that you can adjust the shoulder straps to create the perfect fit, this also allows you to wear it for longer. Her twin brother thinks the Stripe Polo T-Shirt (RRP $49.95, now $34.95) is super comfy ands sneakily I am chuffed to get away with twins in matching colours.

With the season of parties and celebrations now in full swing girls are sure to get lots of wear out of this pretty Tulle Dress (RRP $89.95, now $59.95), it’s such a festive design and it’s available in three different colour ways.
