For Mother’s Day, we wanted to celebrate all of our amazing Aussie mums out there with a special giveaway!

We ran a competition on Facebook and to enter we wanted to know why your mum or a mum you know (could be yourself!) deserves to win this prize!

Our amazing prize is valued at over $200 and only features products curated by Australian Mums! This includes Sophie Guidolin’s book, Macros, Zoe Foster Blake’s Go-To beauty products, Kristina Karlsson’s Kikki K stationary, Carolyn Creswell’s Carmen’s and products from Sue Ismiel’s Nad’s.

Check the post here! 

It was a hard choice to make as there were so many deserving winners and heart-warming responses but our winner is…

Caroline Coady

“I’d actually like to win this for myself as my mum lives overseas, and I’m going to be spending Mother’s Day sleeping after a night shift, as my job as a midwife means we can never take it for granted that we’ll be able to spend these occasions with our own families ☺️”
(replied comment supported by Deborah Avery Hutchinson) “@Caroline Coady, I second Caroline’s entry, she looked after my baby after he was born (only 8 months ago) with so much love and consideration to me and to my baby boy! I can imagine Caroline would constantly be away from or sleeping through major events like Mother’s Day! So please consider her x”
