Little Chillies Mumalicious Inspiration

Let me introduce you to Caroline Shearer (aka Mumalicious): registered and practicing midwife, pre/post natal educator, qualified personal trainer, and inspiring angel! Yes, I’m sure I can see little wings poking out in her picture ;-)

……when heavily pregnant sitting at my OBgyn’s office, I looked at a Mumalicious pamphlet on numerous occasions. Suffering from pelvic instability, I didn’t really know how to safely exercise and thought I should contact Caroline. Unfortunately, I chose chocolate and the couch, the easy way out! It wasn’t until I was six months post baby, that it occurred to me I wasn’t loosing the baby blubber, but in fact was gaining more! Huh? I had gained 30 kilos from my pre-pregnancy weight, Ugh! I had hit my ‘fat threshold’. The woman I saw staring back at me in the mirror was not the woman I identified with! So I called Caroline and went on the mumalicious journey.

Check Caroline helped with individual tailored exercises that suited my post-natal body.

Check I received personal training in the comfort of my own home (and yard!).

Check Caroline helped out with my baby while I worked out.

Check She provided tips for managing my new baby: sleeping, settling, feeding, etc.

Check She provided great encouragement and support for me as both a woman and mother.

But it was so much more than this.....

Little Chillies was starting up at the time I was training with Caroline. She watched it grow from my little shoe concepts and ideas, to roping my mother in to making matching outfits, to finally an actual business! She provided so much inspiration and encouragement to take it a step further and that Little Chillies was something special.

In light of our unique relationship with Caroline and Mumalicious, Little Chillies are offering a free pair of Little Chillies Shoes if you mention this article to Caroline and sign up to her personal training sessions within the next 6 months (offer ends 1st March 2011).

Little Chillies wants every pregnant woman and new mum to experience this inspiring angel :-)

Tiny Sneaky Peaky at Winter 2011

Well we are excited to announce that as of Winter 2011, we are supplying to some lovely children's boutiques, mostly in Melbourne at this stage! We can't wait until next Feb/March to get our deliveries under way and let you know who is stocking Little Chillies from next year :-)

We have been road testing the 2011 Winter garments for a little while now, and thankfully Melbourne offers a long and cold Winter (well into spring ;-)). So my 'almost' 2 year old (Amelie) and myself headed off to Collingwood Children's Farm this morning, joining two of her friends, Noah and Annabelle. Sadly, she was more interested in the steady supply of crackers from my hand bag and playing with, or on, inanimate objects rather than with the animals. But at least I got a few good pictures of toddlers doing their thing.......

A run of pictures with Amelie testing our wool blend red poncho style jacket for next Winter 2011.....

Amelie and the goats...

Amelie eyeing off the kids, but is she actually more interested in the log!

Giddy-up! Noah and Amelie enjoying a pretend horse ride on a log.

Amelie and Noah playing in the grass.

Oops down we go! ...and cracked-it!

You will just have to wait until the end of Summer to see the rest........!
