Everything we’re coveting this summer!
Everyone (and everyone’s grandma…) is jetting off on a summer holiday this season, mama, so we’ve rounded up some awesome summer steals for you and the fam to enjoy on your break. Here’s our extended edition of What Sassy Mama Wants for the month!
Staying cool as a cucumber is hard work sometimes, and that’s where this super cute onesie and shorts set from Tiny Bitz comes in useful. Great for the beach or just chilling out at home for tummy time, this little blue number is a great casual outfit for your bub. The fewer clothes in summer, the better, amiright?
Available for $372 on www.tinybitz.com
Your online store for health and wellness, BerryTime has got looooads of products for you to choose from, and offers free shipping to the 852. We’ve tried the Nordic Birch Day Cream from Urtekram, which isn’t greasy, won’t slide off in the HK heat, and is reasonably priced… that’s a win in our books. Oh, and it’s organic too. Check out the online store for more organic and healthy food and beverage, skincare, personal care, and home essentials.
Available for $79 on www.berrytime.com
It’s the season to splash about in the pool with the minis, and we love the inflatables at Wahu Water Toys, available at Toys R Us. Chillax on the Chillax Chair (either single or double if you’ve got two munchkins), while floating around in the pool. There’s a mesh base and arm rests for ultimate comfort… enjoy!
Available for AU$99.99 (single) or AU$159.01 (double) from www.wahu.com.au
Grana’s been keeping us cool throughout the summer since 2014 with their gorgeous fabrics. The Silk V-Neck Slip Dress is a beautiful structured and easy-to-wear piece. You’ll feel cool running errands around town in the heat, and look amazing if you’re wearing it on that beach vacay.
Available for $613 from www.grana.com
New mamas know the struggle is real post-partum. Compression tights from 2XU are great to support abdominal muscle recovery and the breathable fabric means you can keep calm and stay cool. 2XU are known for their innovative technologies in their athletic apparel… bag a pair of these ASAP, mama!
Available for $1,210 from www.2xu.com.hk

Ah, long haul flights, the bane of our existence, especially when it comes to travelling with the brood! Keeping kids occupied as the hours tediously tick by is a pain in the backside. Enter Small Brown Box’s Air Travel kit, suitable for kids aged 4 and up. It’s packed with six activities, which means 3 or more hours of fun while on the plane. Everything is included, so your tinies can start creating straight out of the box.
Available for $149 from www.smallbrownboxhk.com
It’s the season for extended family and friends to visit Hong Kong, as well as the season when people leave the 852 for other pastures (boohoo!). Dee Gogh has handmade Hong Kong accessories that make wonderful souvenirs: from cufflinks, rings, bracelets, pendants and more, all using coins from the Fragrant Harbour, these make beautiful keepsakes.
Contact Dee Gogh via Facebook; however, we hear that their responses may be tad slow during the summer months.
It’s shaping up to be one hot summer indeed. If you’re prone to dry skin, mama, you might think that with all the humidity in the air, you can skip out on body lotion after a shower. Wrong. We’ve got good news: not all body lotions were made equal (and therefore not all of them are going to leave you feeling like a pot of grease). Kate Somerville’s Nourish Body Perfection is luxurious and absorbs quickly. Gotta stay moisturised, mama.
Available at Kate Somerville counters in Sogo (TST), Joyce Beauty at Lane Crawford in TST, Times Square and ifc, and Joyce Grooming at The Landmark in Central for $415; www.lanecrawford.com/kate-somerville
A beach holiday means the need for summery, brightly-coloured sandals, and we love these Jade Nais Sandals from the Bali collection at Callixto. They’ll add a pop of colour to any outfit and pair well with shorts on a junk or a maxi dress as you keep cool around town. You’ll definitely be in these babies all summer long!
Available for $426.65 from www.callixto.com
