Who am I?
Hi! Welcome to Stuff Mums Like. I’m Maraya and I’m a mum of three who is juggling the teenage years right alongside the preschool years. As well as running Stuff Mums Like I also work as a publicist, usually in entertainment. I’m obsessed with TV and film and can’t get through the day without chocolate. I really love teen drama and I love a good crime show!
I also love to travel- the more the better. I have a long list of places to go so now we just need to come up with the cash!
We live a semi-chaotic life on the northern beaches of Sydney, I’m a bit of a domestic failure and I live by the housework motto of, “never do today what you can put off til tomorrow!” (or I just get the teenagers to do it!) But hey, there’s better things to do than housework right? I hate to cook but I love to bake- so apologies in advance if 90% of my recipes are sweet!
Stuff Mums Like is a whole medley of things because I get bored fast! We don’t fall into a niche and that’s how we like it! So here you’ll find a whole mix of things; recipes (with the occasional Thermomix recipe), product reviews, travel ideas, activities, parenting stories, giveaways and whatever else crosses my mind.
You may see we work with a lot of brands. Without these amazing brands, there wouldn’t be a blog so give them some love! We only work with brands we think you’ll love.
I definitely don’t do this all on my own! I couldn’t get all this done without the help of my amazing team.
Elana- Creative Design
Elana is our creative eye- a trained primary school teacher who moved into real estate photography and graphic design- she keeps us looking beautiful, acts as our photographer, video editor and designer. She also takes care of our styling and design reviews! She’s a mum of two and has more hobbies than anyone we know!
Sara- Real Mum Reviewer
Sara is a Northern Beaches based primary school teacher and a mother of one. She has a passion for travel and lived in London for several years. After her maternity leave, she returned to teaching full time, while her husband stays home with baby! She is one of our real mum product testers- we work her hard!
Lynsey- Blogger/ Real Mum Reviewer
Lynsey is a mum of three (soon to be four!) You can usual find her swapping her vacuum cleaner for six-inch heels, shopping online (while drinking wine!) and taking selfies.
Jessica- Real Mum Reviewer/ Social Media Manager
Jess is a mum of two boys and has recently relocated to rural South Australia, where she’s enjoying country life (and the fact that it takes so long to get anywhere that she can spend hours in the car on her own!). Jess road tests our baby products with the help of her 4-month-old!
Krystal is a mum of three who’s life resembles Lord of the Flies- just without the island. In between changing her hairstyle and managing her One Teaspoon addiction she loves to share her crazy life on the blog (usually while drinking wine!)
When she’s not blogging or running after her 4-year-old you can find Bridget crafting, with a glitter gun in one hand and a glass of wine in the other!
Mireia- Travel Blogger
Mireia Garriga is a mum of three girls. Originally from Spain, she lived in Canada, too, before relocating to Australia with her Australian husband. She worked as a Production Coordinator for the TV Film Industry in Barcelona for 7 years and now she is a freelance writer.
Ayesha- Food Blogger
Ayesha is a mum of two kids who loves exploring Sydney with her little ones. Pursuing a career in psychology she volunteers at a local victim support organisation and writes when she is not reading. In between school runs she does DIY up-cycling projects and grows bonsai trees.
Please note Stuff Mums Like is an Australian based blog
