Sugar and Spice Baby Store | Girl in the Pjs
A friend gave me an adorable onesie and nappy cover for Zelda when she was born. It turns out that the clothes came from a cute baby clothes store at the Todd Mall Markets. Sugar & Spice stock baby and children's wear, decor and accessories newborn to size 5. They have so many adorable things, you can't help but purchase something each time you walk past. 

Today I have asked Sophia, the woman behind Sugar & Spice to give us a few insights into herself and the business.

The idea for Sugar & Spice came from..... 
Sugar & Spice came to be because of my two girls and the fact that Alice  has been without a baby/kids shop for about 3yrs.  I thought about this concept for good while and then once Lola (my youngest) was born, I just decided to go ahead and do it.

The most challenging part of running your own business is.....
Not having anyone to guide you or tell you that you are doing the right thing, you just have to take everything as it comes and trust your instinct and be open to learning on the spot.

Time management secret is being lucky enough to have a lot of family around to help with the girls.

Your style essentials are....

No Sleep | Girl in the Pjs
My cute, gorgeous baby has decided to all but drop her day naps. Refusing to sleep more than half an hour at a time. She used to sleep for at least 2-4 hours each morning. I knew that it would come to an end sometime, I just didn't think it would be so soon. And I thought it would just be a cutting back, not giving up all together! Needless to say this blog has been a little neglected. There will be a big post this week, so please keep checking in.

Zelda's Nursery Tour

Zelda's Nursery Tour | Girl in the Pjs

Zelda's nursery came together the weekend before I went into labour. That nesting instinct is something else, hey? For some reason I just wanted it all done that weekend. I think because the following weekend Nick had a trip away planned and the weekend after that was just getting too close to the due date. Little did we know that Zelda had another due date planned!

We had kept Lulu's cot but in the intervening years it had gone a little moody in the shed, so we opted for a new cot from our local Target store for Zelda. A plant and a few pieces of art that we already owned, including a painting of her sister's went onto her shelf. A hand-me-down collection of shoes plus a new pint rabbit pair from the Small Store, a new cactus and tear out poster plus a mobile from Kmart and the room was pretty much done. This room doubles as a guest room so it includes a pallet bed with a caravan mattress for guests but I also imagine it as a reading space.

Link Love | Girl in the Pjs
It's the weekend again, yay!! I have been feeling much better this week and luckily as I spent the majority of the week in meetings as part of my work (I'm still on maternity leave but there are some things that I still need to do), which included a field trip to the Alcoota Fossil Site with the main Palaeontologist, who was incredibly knowledgeable about the site. It was a fascinating trip.

Catching my eye on the internets this week:

Interesting read about how Facebook targets you with ads

This list of 15 documentaries you need to watch includes two docos on female photographers that I'm going to have to watch

Speaking of films, 10 book to film adaptations coming soon

A few sensible thoughts on the whole minimalism craze
