Meet the fab duo Mandy Fry and Summer Rapp, owners and designers of Amuse Society: these ladies are the definition of industry veterans! 

BB: Best thing about motherhood? 

MF & SR: Motherhood is loving and caring for someone in the most extreme way possible! It’s witnessing life with virgin eyes again and really living and enjoying all the love around you. We are both career driven women who spend so much time trying to balance it all…work and family…we always say it has to be quality over quantity…in everything we do:) Our sons and daughters are best friends but they are extreme opposites….it’s important to treat them each as their own person. Motherhood is setting examples and guiding them, but not doing it for them:) Letting them make their own quality decisions is so important….It’s how we got to be where are:) So, thank you Mom (and dad:)

BB: Fav Mom Tip?

MF & SR: You gotta just roll with it! Sometimes, most of the time actually, things will not go as planned and you just have to laugh it off and go with it! Like, if you forget a diaper or a change of clothes and you find yourself needing one or the other, you just make do! Also, stopping to enjoy the moments, without interruption, are so important! Put the cell phone down, stop instagramming, no texting, etc. Relish in the moment, life is good!!! 

BB: Current Obsessions?

MF & SR: Both of our little girls LOVE Tori Praver’s  swim suits and Lolli. Jagger and Brixton live in their Amuse tee shirts!!!! After that we shop our local boutiques, Zara, Crew Cuts, or our favorite vintage stores for clothes for our little ones!!! We really only use Sun Bum as our sunscreen! Both of our kids are obsessed with green smoothies every morning! Us too but we also love a glass of good champagne! As for destinations…..Mandy is off to her annual Tavarua trip and Summer is heading to Cabo next month!! Kids love the warm weather trips the best!

Meet Mai Dalle Cort, the fashionista and bombshell behind Aila Blue. 

BB: Best thing about motherhood? 

MC: The best thing about motherhood is that my sense of purpose has changed and this has created a newfound passion and drive in me to succeed. That and waking up every morning to the sweetest little face.

BB: Fav Mom Tip?

MC: The best mom tip I can offer is to always listen to your heart. As mothers we always worry about our parenting skills and the choices we make. And everyone around us has very strong opinions about how we should feed, nurse, sleep, our babies. But I've learned the only thing that matters is if it feels good to me. My 16 month old sometimes stays up until 10 pm, he eats french fries and chocolate, and gasp, we co-sleep. But we are a very very happy little family!

BB: Current Obsessions?

MC: Midnight in Paris one piece swimsuit, Valley eyewear sunglasses, letting Fox run nude in the yard, Mangosteens and Australian Vogue

Valley Sunnies (they're large enough to cover any evidence of a sleepless night and stylish enough to make any outfit look amazing!)
My trusty new iPhone (for work on the GO!)
Willow's coconut water (her obsession is my obsession! Whatever makes her happy, right?!!) 
Coco's new Rainbow Gardens Baby Wrap from our current collection- this print is so beautiful, colourful and distinctive plus I use the wrap as a pram cover, picnic blanket and even a cape when we are needing to get creative with little miss Willow!!
