We’re All For Mum

We get that while mums love their kids (so much!), we have other passions as well. Fitting them in is the trouble!  So we share cool ways to simplify all aspects of life, so we can make time for the things we love.

From parenting and pregnancy support, style and beauty advice, home organising, kids’ activities and DIY tips, recipes and meal plans, relationship secrets… and a sprinkling of celeb goss (because, let’s face it, even highly-organised mums need a break sometimes!).

Be Mumtastic! A supportive community whenever and wherever you need it.

So, just like most of the mums we know – we’re the full package.

Our writers are all other mums who’ve been there and who aren’t afraid to tell it how it really is. We help you every step of the way – through the grittiness of pregnancy to the overwhelming nature of life with a newborn to helping you raise happy, independent kids. And because it really does take a village, we’ll show you how to build stronger relationships with your partner, friends, family and community.

Then we add a layer of smart hacks and real-life advice that help you keep on top of family and work life to really make the most of your time, and, yes, even sneak in a little you time. We’ll also show you what you can do with all the time you’ll save – from cool family activities you’ll be itching to try to DIY and craft projects that make life that little bit better.

Basically, we do everything we can to help you enjoy the crazy, whirlwind, emotional-overload that is mum life.

Bronwyn Mandile, Managing Editor

Bronwyn Mandile is the Managing Editor of Mumtastic (she loves her job!). Writing as Maxabella, Bron has been a well-known parenting writer for over six years. Prior to launching herself into full-time writing and editing, Bron freelanced while she worked in marketing on some of Australia’s most well-known brands. 

When she’s not making Mumtastic a gorgeous place for Aussie women to hang out, she’s blogging over at Maxabella Loves about her three kids, decidedly hot husband and her desire to live a slow life. That has never happened, not once. Photo: Luisa Brimble
