Happy Ella After followers would know that my recent Superhero love is bordering on obsession. I have loved every second of finding super cool Super Hero themed decor for Hudson’s room. We are almost there, and just waiting on a few little touches to finish it off. I’m afraid however, that I won’t be able … Continue reading »

Friday Find: Love to Dream Swaddles

Sleep time with babies is hard. Some babies settle easily, whilst others require their parents to jump through a million hoops just to get them to shut their eyes. Swaddling is one of those techniques that seems to really help babies feel safe, comfortable and settled for sleep. Research says that swaddling helps babies sleep … Continue reading »

Friday Find: Boon Grass Drying Rack

Friday Find: Boon Grass Drying Rack

This week’s Friday Find is short, but very sweet (I’m juggling typing this with breast feeding and an active two year old!). A friend of mine had this a few years ago on her kitchen bench, and it is only now, that I am with second child that I truly appreciate her genius! The Boon … Continue reading »

Coming home

Coming home

This weekend we moved back into our house after a six month renovation. We had originally attempted to complete the renovation before Hudson was born, but as you know, he had other plans. We had decided to renovate our two bedroom home to accommodate a third bedroom and some larger living space. My husband Daniel, … Continue reading »

Hard Yakka

Hard Yakka

Whinge alert – this post is my way of venting and having a bit of a whinge. Apologies in advance. The last week has been really tough. The first few weeks of having a new born is really hard for any family, and we are now dealing with escalating colic / reflux / intolerance. Hudson’s … Continue reading »

New finds for Ella’s new oasis

New finds for Ella’s new oasis

Last week I was super obsessed with super heroes. I blame it on the fact that Hudson’s Dad has gone a little ‘batty’ (excuse the pun) about having a boy. I shared some of my favourite finds from local businesses and talented Mums who have created gorgeous decor with a super hero twist. This week, … Continue reading »

Super Hero Super Picks!

Super Hero Super Picks!

If you haven’t been following my Instagram feed lately, then you wouldn’t know that I have been swept up in Super Hero Mania. Given the fact that I’ve just given birth to a son, his Dad has understandably gone a little crazy with the whole ‘Marvel’ and ‘DC’ superhero / comic craze, and I have … Continue reading »

Coping with Colic

Coping with Colic

Firstly, apologies if there are any spelling mistakes, grammatical errors, or general mistakes in this post. I’m also typing with one hand, as I hold my little one in my arms. I’m running on empty at the moment, or at the very least, the fumes from the first sip of a cup of tea in … Continue reading »

Friday Finds: Pristine Prams

Friday Finds: Pristine Prams

Before Hudson arrived, I decided to bite the bullet and invest in a double pram. I had tried to resist the urge as long as possible, but as my due date loomed closer, I realised that following the birth of our second child, I would need to ensure that I could ‘confine’ our fist whilst … Continue reading »

Hudson heads home!

Hudson heads home!

It is with great love, joy and heartfelt gratitude that today we bring our Hudson home. Born four weeks early, as you know this meant that our little man had to stay a little longer in hospital to fatten up, develop some good habits and generally be a little stronger to be a bouncing baby … Continue reading »
