Mommy and Son! on Amo’s first day at school, how adorbs!

It has to be said, without favour, of all the moms I know, this one quite takes the cup.

Naledi has like this insane mom instinct, I don’t know how but she has this knowledge of parenting and she’s so good at it. I think its partly because she’s such a kindred spirit, although she will never ever admit that she’s a big softy.

I know that I could stand to take a few notes from her, she and her son Amo are so close. That’s one thing I struggle with. My son and I, we have our moments of closeness but its not always the case. And I think part of the reason I started this category on the blog is to learn from other young moms, see what I’m doing right and what I can change.

Anyway, before I go and make this about me, here’s our first feature. My best friend Naledi on parenting and things, in her own words.

Q: If you could describe yourself in three words…?
A: Sarcastic, bookworm, maverick
Q: What is a must have when it comes to your beauty routine

A: SPF 50 moisturiser and a good serum

Q: Describe your style in one sentence.
A: An incorporation of classic trends
Q: Who is your style icon and why?

A: Zoe Saldana because of the clean classic looks she puts together. Rihanna because she follows her fashion instincts

Q: Best and worst buy

A: Best: white shift dress Twist
Worst: black jeans from a thrift shop in town

Q: How old is your son?
A: 6.

Q: What things do you guys together that are special, like your mommy and me time
A: Everytime is mommy and me time. We avid movie goers, we dress up and go to dinner together and we have random deep convos before bedtime.

Q: Best memory as a mom

A: His birth

Q: Worst memory as a mom
A: getting him to trust himself, still working on that
Q: What advise would you give to other young moms?
A: Spend time with your kid, how they turn out is entirely your fault

Q: What is your immediate goal for the next 12 months for your son
A: To keep on our current path and to move him to the school I want
Q: Where do you go shopping for him, for clothes. And where do you shop for you. And why?
A: For him, mostly Edgars and Woolworths. It’s just convenient

Q: What’s your approach when it comes to dressing yourself and your child?
A: For me, everywhere. Mostly Woolworths because they have classic, classy timeless pieces (I love Twist and Country Road)
If I’m impressed by how he looks, then he looks good. I am my only judge, he’s not bothered
I dress by mood, I love a classic look that will look good today and next year, therefore my trend following is limited. For instance I looove skinny jeans, that look will last. Jumpsuits however will soon vanish
When I’m lazy, I go for dresses. Easy, versatile and shows off my legs
My make-up consists of concealer, mascara, shimmer stick, brow liner and gloss. That’s about it. When I go big, I add a top lash line with a flick
