It’s still pretty warm outside, so we won’t bombard you with everything autumn and winter just yet, mama. We still managed to curate a list of awesome things we want, for us and the kiddos. It’s all here in this month’s What Sassy Mama Wants!
Oaks of Acorn’s Double Layer Dress
Who says summer is the only season to enjoy the beach? Oaks of Acorn has taken inspiration with a winter beach theme across items for their Fall/Winter ’15 collection for kids. We love this Double Layer Dress in Pink jacquard, which is great to be worn over a turtleneck and some leggings as the weather cools. Get ready to stroll the shores of Shek O with your little one dressed to the nines!

MASE’s Amelia cross-body clutch
Party season is coming up, so why not dress up that LBD with the Amelia bag from MASE? This casual and colourful clutch will brighten up the jewel and berry tones of fashionable winter wear. It’s big enough for all the essentials for a night out, or even dinner with the hubby and kids (yep, even for that wrinkled packet of wet wipes you’ll need to mop up an inevitable spill or two). Sling it over your shoulder or across your body so you can be hands-free and comfortable toting bubba around the streets of the 852.
Available at www.maseartworld.com for $1,200
It’s not long after lunch you feel the little one tugging on your sleeve going “I’m huuuuuungryyyy”. Time to organise something edible and healthy, again. Or you could just grab one of these handy snack pouches from Little Freddie, which is 100% natural baby food. Suitable for kiddos aged four months to 3 years, Little Freddie has three ranges with different flavours: fruits and veggies, grains, and meat and fish. Ingredients are organic and have no additives, no sugar, no GMO and no BPA in their packaging. These are great to tide your cheeky cherub over until dinner.
Cath Kidston Squirrels Kids Cross Body Bag
We adore the products from Cath Kidston – cute, vintage-looking bags, wallets, accessories and more. Little girls will love the cheeky new novelty print featuring Squirrels (and Sausage Dogs!). The Kids Cross Body Bag will match any dress, and is small enough to fit small, soft toys in to take to grandma’s house. Cute!

Coconut Matter WILD Virgin Coconut Oil
We’ve touted the benefits of coconuts time and again, yet we’re still going loco for coco at Sassy Mama HQ! Coconut Matter’s WILD virgin coconut oil is great as an energy booster in your morning coffee, juice or smoothie. Or you could use it in your hair, as a body moisturiser… the uses are endless! Made using the award-winning Direct Micro Expelling process, its delicate aroma will transport you to the white beaches and blue waters of the Solomon Islands…
A jar of Coconut Matter’s WILD virgin coconut oil is $210, available online here.
Burt’s Bees Sheer Body Lotion
As the weather cools (and while we’re still sitting in air-conditioned rooms!), our skin is drying out and flaking right off! Turn the ‘ewwww’ of greasy body lotions and butters into ‘ahhh’ with Burt’s Bees fast-absorbing Sheer Body Lotion. It’s lightweight on your skin, great for this in-between weather we’re experiencing right now. In three scents – Clementine & Calla Lilly, Violet & Mango and Cucumber & Aloe – banish itchy, dry skin by massaging a liberal amount of this all over your body.
