If you have cute little bundles on your list of people to shop for this December I have got an awesome sale for you:

During the month of November La Mami is clearing the shelves at ridiculously cheap prices. All stock is reduced by up to 70% and every order receives FREE shipping Australia wide! Be quick though, offer is valid this month only and these bargains will sell out fast.

ColorStories Milky Way PeachOver the past months I have introduced you to quite a few of the brands you’ll find at La Mami and I didn’t want to keep the gorgeous ColorStories range from you. European label ColorStories has created a lovely collection of bed linen and blankets for babies and toddlers that is sure to compliment anu nursery beautifully. I myself am particularly taken by the wonderful Story About Courage Bedding (was $99, now $45), if only I had a baby boy to shop for!

ColorStories Story about Courage

ColorStories Story about Courage bed linen

The delightful illustrations on the ColorStories Story About Courage (boys) and Story about Love (girls) bed linen are designed by talented artist Agata Raczynska. These sweet images are meant to inspire children and their parents to create their very own bedtime stories so that bedtime becomes an exciting, fun, special time and beautiful memories are made. Such a welcome change from the mass produced licensed linen you see in big department stores.

ColorStories Knitted BlanketsThe ColorStories Knitted Blankets (were $99, now $45) make a classic, timeless gift that will be treasured for years to come. These soft cotton blankets are simple but that exactly what makes them so charming, a lovely heirloom gift with many uses. The classic knit allows for lots of movement and breathability, we use this blanket in the pram and car as it so easy to tuck in on the sides. There are six stylish colours to choose from to suit both boys and girls with gender neutral options available too.

Samiboo

This past month a few people have commented on the lovely raccoon blanket that you often see in my Facebook photos of baby Sybil, everyone seems to love it (so do we!) and wants to know where to buy it. Well, I am excited to share that this gorgeous minky blanket is part of the Samiboo blanket range at online boutique La Mami and wonderful owner and mum Joanna is kindly giving you the chance to win one too.

Samiboo Minky CarsMums all across Australia are quickly falling in love with Samiboo‘s fantastic range of baby wraps, bed linen, pillows and accessories. Made in Europe from quality fabrics, including bamboo, and featuring unique, colourful prints their designs are a great fit for modern families.

Samiboo Minky StrawberryThere are many Minky Blanket designs to choose from in both boy and girl styles, popular themes include cars, birds, cupcakes, planes, butterflies and more. All blankets are reversible with cute printed cotton on one side and super soft plush minky in a matching colour on the other side for your baby to snuggle into. You can even select different sizes and weights to suit the environment and season, I chose the extra weight to make a lovely, cushioned play rug for our little girl.

Samiboo Bamboo Cot Blanket

For summer time Samiboo also has a lighter bedding option in the shape of the handmade Bamboo Cot Blanket ($89) and the Bamboo Muslin Cot Blanket ($79). Bamboo is an environmentally friendly fabric that is soft and gentle on your baby’s skin, it is also naturally antibacterial and will help keep your little one cool on hot days. Thanks to the anti allergenic properties of bamboo it is a popular choice for eczema sufferers. While these two designs are called blanket they can easily be used as a wrap, sheet or even a sunshade too.

Samiboo Cot BlanketThe standard Bamboo Cot Blanket is silky smooth and measuring 110x110cm it is a great size for swaddling your baby. Our little Sybil is still being wrapped at bed time and I love how soft this cute owl print blanket is against her skin, especially important on warmer days when it is placed directly against her bare legs and arms. If you do live in a hot climate the lighter, more airy muslin version is probably the best pick for you.

9Fashion

When I think back one year ago I was around 20 weeks pregnant and admiring my fast growing baby bump. Of course I love having our baby here to cuddle and play with but I also miss that lovely bump, it is such a privilege to be able to carry a baby and I will treasure those memories forever. When I discovered European label 9fashion at La Mami I was a little sad I can’t wear these beautiful dresses, I think they look amazing:

9fashion Maternity Dresses

9fashion Maternity Dresses

The 9fashion maternity and nursing range is designed and made in Poland and now Australian mums can sport this stylish European look too. It used to be quite tricky for expecting mamas to find a flattering outfit for a special occasion but with 9fashion every pregnant woman can step out in the spotlight. The stunning maternity dresses are specifically designed to embrace those wonderful curves and make you feel confident and proud. You only have a few months to enjoy this amazing stage so ravel in it while you can!

9fashion Calandra Dress

9fashion Calandra Dress

My personal favourite would have to be the 9fashion Calandra Dress ($109, size S – XXL) in classic navy. The feminine lace cap sleeves and eye catching ribbon around the waist are sure to have heads turning wherever you go. A waist tie is a simple but very effective way to accentuate your bump and to add beautiful definition to bust and belly, I did this a lot in my last pregnancy and it looked lovely.

9fashion Maternity Tops

But 9fashion doesn’t just cater for pregnant ladies, some of the maternity styles are suitable for breastfeeding mamas too. With easy nursing access and plenty of room to hide those extra lumps and bumps 9fashion Maternity/Nursing Tops are a perfect choice for both expecting and nursing mothers. There are lots of different styles and colours to choose from with both long and short sleeve options.

BabyOno

Now that baby Sybil is 6 months old it is time to say goodbye to those (now baggy) maternity clothes that have been hogging my wardrobe. I may still have a few kilos to lose but they say slow and steady wins the race so I am trying to give it time. Because I am breastfeeding I have been wearing my maternity/nursing bras and singlets but without that beautiful baby belly they have become a little too roomy and that doesn’t do much for your confidence. I recently discovered a perfect solution at La Mami: the BabyOno Nursing Singlet.

BabyOno Nursing SingletI am sure you have all seen nursing singlets before but this clever piece of underwear really offers the best of both worlds. On the one hand this seamless Nursing Singlet ($79) by Polish brand BabyOno is comfortable, hypoallergenic, flexible and super soft and the simple drop cups allow for easy feeding access. On the other hand it offers great shapewear functionality, pulls everything together, supports your breasts and tummy muscles and keeps all those lumps and bumps tightly in place. Double win!

BabyOno Nursing Singlet WhiteI’ll be honest, when I took the BabyOno Nursing Singlet out of the box my first thought was that it was way too small. Thinking there was no way I would ever fit in that neat black top I put it aside, but later I decided to try my luck anyway and I was pleasantly surprised. Once I wrestled my way in I immediately fell in love with this singlet, it fits like a glove and smoothes everything out beautifully. I will definitely be buying the other colours too.

BabyOno Maternity Nursing BraThe current BabyOno range consists of a Maternity/Nursing Bra, Maternity Brief, Nursing Singlet and Post Natal Belly Band. Styles are available in three classic colours: black, neutral and white, for sizing please refer to individual products. BabyOno products are proudly made in Poland using high quality materials. You can find BabyOno and many other great European brands in store at Australian boutique La Mami.

During the month of September Hip little one readers can enjoy an exclusive 15% off storewide at La Mami, as well as FREE shipping Australia wide and FREE gift wrapping, it doesn’t get much better than that! Simply enter the code ‘HIPLITTLEONE’ at checkout, offer ends September 30, 2013.

Knitted BlanketIf you love what you see at La Mami, make sure you give the La Mami Facebook page the big thumbs up and you may just win a beautiful knitted blanket (valued at $99) for your little one. These classic knitted blankets are the perfect size for in the pram or car and as they are made from 100% cotton they are breathable and soft, ideal for the summer ahead. Be quick though, the competition is nearly over!
