From the moment I first stumbled upon UASHMAMA I have been intrigued by this stylish designer label. Made with love in Tuscany, Italy, their stunning range of bags and homewares has fashionistas all over Australia talking.


If you didn’t know any better you’d think UASHMAMA products are made from beautiful, soft leather with a classy, luxurious look and feel. So what would you say if I told you that the UASHMAMA range is made from special washable paper?

UASHMAMAThis unique Italian paper looks like leather, washes like fabric and maintains its shape so it can be used over and over again. As a reusable product, made using a virgin fibre through cultivation and not deforestation, it is not only practical and durable but gentle on the environment too. Handbags and storage bags, wallets and purses, aprons and more in a range of trendy colours, there is a perfect UASHMAMA product for everyone.

To find out more about UASHMAMA, to locate a stockist near you or to order online visit www.uashmama.com.au, shipping is free Australia wide.

Every Saturday the kids and I have a FaceTime chat with my parents in The Netherlands; we catch up on what we’ve done that week, places we’ve been, funny things that happened, school achievements and more. Both my mum and I love scoring a bargain so most weeks we’re also proudly showing off our latest buys in front of the iPad. If you enjoy picking up a gorgeous product at a fantastic price too you may want to drop in at The Little Haven this weekend:

For a limited time only save up to 40% on selected products in the fabulous The Little Haven Summer Sale. Prices as marked and stock is limited so be quick!

Skip Hop MonkeySo what are some of my favourites steals in the sale? This funky monkey Skip Hop Zoo Backpack (was $39.95, now $22.95) would make a lovely gift for a little traveller. From daycare to kindy and from a day at the park to a sleepover at Nanna’s, this cute backpack keeps all your goods neatly together and with a design this sweet I bet there will be no grumping about who needs to carry the bag.

Little Bird Gift CaseIf you’re shopping for a new arrival you can be sure to get big brownie points for this adorable Little Bird Gift Case (was $32.95, now $22.95). This lovely gift consists of a white/red spotted grow suit and two pairs of matching socks, packed neatly together in a reusable carry case. Afterwards the spotty suitcase is the perfect storage space for little nicnacs, hair accessories and jewellery, my girls would love it!

b.box Nappy WalletAs a frequent user of the b.box Nappy Wallet (was $34.95, now $22.95) I can not speak highly enough of this convenient product. Nappy changes on the go are so much easier when you have everything you need within reach and this handy box does just that. It’s big enough for a few nappies and wipes and it even stores a matching wipe-clean change mat inside. The wipes can be accessed from the outside, how clever!

After the huge success of the original Calypso satchel in the classic moonbeam and black colour ways the gr8x team decided to add a pop of colour to this top selling baby bag this season. Brighten up your grey and rainy winter with the brand new Calypso Satchel in beautiful turquoise:

Calypso Raffle

‘Calypso Satchel’ by gr8x

The spacious Calypso Satchel (RRP $139.95) is a gorgeous baby bag with a convenient double zip around top flap, allowing you to easily see inside and find what you are looking for. No more endless feeling around in the dark hoping to dig up the item you need, we don’t have time for that! Two zipped front pockets will you keep your car keys, phone or lipgloss safe and within hand’s reach.

Made from soft PU leather and with an adjustable shoulder strap the Calypso is comfortable to wear, even when it’s filled with lots of baby supplies. On the inside you’ll find a soft, padded change mat for hygienic nappy changes on the go and an insulated bottle holder to keep your baby’s drinks at the right temperature when out and about. I love the handy wipe-clean lining, after all life with a baby is full of sticky messes, grubby fingers and unexpected spills.

This stylish new Calypso bag is due to arrive on our shores any day and we are giving one away, enter our giveaway below for your chance to win.

It’s colourful, fun, interesting, educational and super cool, the award-winning Yookidoo toy range has arrived in store at Urban Baby and it’s going to sell like hot cakes. Check out what we’re so excited about:


Yookidoo is all about discovery, providing babies and toddlers with innovative toys that engage their growing little minds in many different ways. Colours, shapes, textures, sounds, movement, lights, these delightful toys are sure to keep kids entertained for hours.

Yookidoo Pull Along Whistling DuckThis friendly Pull Along Whistling Duck (RRP $59.95, ages 1-3 years) teaches young children about cause and effect. When you pull him along he will sing and whistle with delight, but when you halt he will stop. If you leave him for a while he will whistle and call you back to play, babies will love this! The colourful bead coaster is removable for another great way of play for little hands.

Flow 'n' Fill SpoutThe Flow ‘n’ Fill Spout (RRP $34.95, ages 9m – 3 years) is one of my favourite Yookidoo designs. Kids just love flowing water but letting the bath tap run non-stop is a costly business and I’d rather avoid a painful accident with a hot tap. This clever battery operated bath toy pumps water from the bath tub so you are not using any more water than normal and the temperature is always right. It comes with three little tumblers so kids can play around with different water effects.

Create an exciting play corner for your toddler in a flash with the Discovery Playhouse (RRP $139.95, ages 1-5 years). This portable play centre is filled with great activities, each of the walls (and even the inside) offers different things to explore, see, do and try. Learn about colours, numbers and shape, practise fine motor skills, peek in the mirror, roll the balls and much more. To save yourself precious floorspace the Discovery Playhouse can be folded away when not in use.

My Cute Baby

As a Dutch girl living in Australia I have realised that many Aussie mums LOVE European clothing. They love the funky designs, the high quality materials and their durability, what they don’t love is paying big bucks. If you are looking to pick up some awesome European designer pieces for next to nothing this is the sale for you:

My Cute Baby Yellow

Australian boutique My Cute Baby is closing down and they’re clearing the shelves with a huge Closing Down Sale. All European designer clothing has been drastically reduced with everything in store just $20 or less. At prices like this it’s going to go fast!

Fill up your shopping basket today and stock up on fantastic brands like Albababy, Smafolk, Lily Balou and save big. As if the prices are not low enough already Australia wide shipping is capped at a super tiny $5.95 per order, that’s cheaper than parking in the city.
