With the school year winding down and holiday plans in the works, it’s time to do a little summer shopping, mamas! We’ve got our eye on a stylish bag new mamas can tote around, sublimely scented soaps and a great pair of kicks for treading the Hong Kong hills. Baby can get in on the action too with adorable baby bibs and matching onesies! Get out those credit cards, mamas… here’s What Sassy Mama Wants for May:
1. Bensimon Tennis Shoes
With all the walking in Hong Kong, it’s necessary to have comfortable walking shoes and we can’t think of a better choice than Bensimon! They’re super lightweight, yet provide great support and are durable (trust us, they last for years)! These classic French chic sneakers will be your new go-to for daily wear, so be sure to pick up a few different colours (our favourite is the light grey).
2. Ally Capellino Mary Changing Bag
This British waxed cotton changing bag from British designer Ally Capellino is practical and functional yet super stylish for the modern mama. It features plenty of pockets to store milk bottles, baby food and nappies and is lined with a nylon material which makes it easy to clean! The side pocket also holds a fold-out, padded changing mat so you’re fully prepared for any situation.
Find it: Available for $2,380 (30% discount from $3,400) at St. Francis Street, 9-11 St. Francis Street, Wanchai, Hong Kong; shop online at Ally Capellino here
3. Little Local Onesies
Baby onesies are all the rage, and we’re loving the fun, zodiac-themed prints on these outfits from Little Local. Made from 100% cotton, these onesies are soft and comfortable and allow baby to run free while still looking cute! They’re available in a range of colours and zodiac signs for baby girls and boys.
Find it: Available for $180 at Hong Kong stockists here
4. Nest Noir from Nest Designs
We love the summer Nest Noir series from Nest Designs, featuring these adorable baby bibs. Made from Nest’s signature bamboo blended material, these bib bandanas are available in a range of neutral colors and prints and feature adjustable snaps to create a snug fit for your baby.

5. So True Naturals Artisanal Castile Soap
So True Naturals‘ range of artisanal scented soaps come in a range of delicious scents that will leave your skin feeling primped and pampered. The soaps are made with the finest olive oils and enriched with pure essential oils for smooth, softly-scented skin. We love the spicy peppermint cinnamon scent!

We know you mamas love throwing on your UGGs whenever you need comfortable and cosy footwear, and now your little ones can too! UGG’s summer collection for kids is bright and colourful, with a range of sandals and booties inspired by pop art and featuring UGG’s signature sheepskin straps and soles.
