Everything a mama wants this month
We’re at the end of summer, but there’s still a whole load of stuff that we still want! From swimmers for our kids to beat the heat, and cool cotton clothes for everyone as well as some delicious bites to indulge in, it’s all here in this edition of What Sassy Mama Wants!
Food, glorious food… if you’ve yet to pop by 3/3rds in Central, mama, hop to it! It’s a great café to bring the kids to – they’ll love the paper thin Three Cheese Pizza with Parma Ham, while mama can enjoy the any of the salads on offer. But their signature dish is the Three Cheese Toastie – comfort food at its finest!
3/3rds is at Shop 1, Manning House, 38-48 Queen’s Road Central (Alternative Entrance: Stanley Street), 2562 8805, www.three-3rds.com
Need a cool gift for a friend? Or just want some personalised gear for your infant? Founded in 2011 by a mama and papa team who loves to create custom gift items for babies, Suite Works is your one-stop shop for baby and children’s apparel and accessories. Personalise a bib from the top up – you can select the colour, the text and font style – and choose a design for the bottom half and order online. We love the animal and safari-themed one. Note that your customised bib will take up to two weeks to make.
Beat the heat and put your petit princess in this pin-striped dress from Naomi Wear. Pair it with a tee or a light sweater for cooler weather, and she’ll be the belle of the ball.

Check out Sassy Mama Kat’s two adorable monkeys, Aiden and Everly in matching sibling lounge wear on our Insta feed. (cue the collective “awwws…!”)
