Name: Mara Ferreira

Who’s in your family?
My husband Matthew and Augustine, 5 months.

Can you tell us a bit about your background and profession?
I graduated college planning on going to law school but it wasn’t until I was working full-time in a firm that I realized I had other passions that I wanted to pursue. At the same time I started M Loves M as a creative outlet, documenting my relationship with my then boyfriend/now husband Matthew. Got a job as a buyer and stylist for an online store and then went on to do marketing for a shoe brand.

Where do you live?
I live in a beach town in Los Angeles!

What is the best advice or tip you have received as a pregnant or new mother?
The best advice is not to take anyone’s advice! There’s so many people out there that will tell you what worked best for them, but the truth is, every baby (and situation!) is different. You have to trust yourself and do what you think is best for your family.

Did you have any cravings during pregnancy?
Chocolate chip cookies!! I could eat them morning, day and night!

What was your most essential garment during pregnancy?
A comfortable dress that would grow with my belly! Since I was pregnant during the summertime, I needed to be comfortable!

What was the most obvious change in your life since you became pregnant or had children?
The most obvious change has been that my time is no longer my own. I can’t just get up and go. I have to think about Augustine first.

What do you feel is the greatest challenge in being someone’s parent?
The pressure! There’s so much responsibility to raise this child in the best possible way so that they can learn, succeed and thrive.

What’s highest on your wish list right now?
A full night of sleep!!

What’s the most comical situation you have found yourself in as a pregnant or new mother?
Getting peed on, pooped on, and spit up on! Sometimes it all happens before noon!

 

What are your top 5 favorites picks from Boob’s spring/summer collection 2017?

1. Top peplum
It’s a classic style that can be worn again and again!

2. Wrap dress
Another classic and feminine style. I love how flattering it is!

3. Dress Simone
I love the bright and happy stripes!

4. Playsuit
A style that can be dressed up or down!

5. Dress Audrey cap sleeve
Love the simple yet easy silhouette!

Name: Åsa Norin

Who’s in your family?
My husband, Fredrik and son Otis, who’s almost 3 years old, and the baby in my belly that will be born in February.

Can you tell us a bit about your background and profession?
I love mid-century vintage, DJ for fun, and work as pattern designer at Boob.

Where do you live?
In an apartment in Stockholm.

What is the best advice or tip you have received as a pregnant or new mother?
Don’t make so many plans that you fill up all your time. Spend a day in bed with your baby and sleep! There is nothing better than to just relax and know that you do not have a lot of things you must do.

Do you have any cravings during pregnancy?
During my first pregnancy it was ketchup and mustard. I always stopped at the same kiosk on the way home from work and bought a hot dog with this combo on top. This time it's apple juice! Ice cold. I can drink limitless amounts… until I get heartburn.

What was your most essential garment during pregnancy?
A pencil skirt! It goes with everything, and sits nicely over a pregnant belly.

What was the most obvious change in your life since you became pregnant or had children?
Of course, time changes when you have children! You can accomplish so much when you don’t have children. But the greatest change is the love that I feel for, and get, from my son. It’s overwhelming, and makes me feel like the happiest person in the world.

What do you feel is the greatest challenge in being someone’s parent?
Getting together all of the practical things, like a little outing with the baby carriage, which looks like a moving van. Another challenge is to be a moderately relaxed parent, and not turn into a mother hen. Heh-heh.

What item is highest on your wish list right now?
I have a pile of books I want to read, and I long for the day when I can dig into them.

What’s the most comical situation you have found yourself in as a pregnant or new mother?
This thing called a breastfeeding brain really exists, and it really knocks out all of your senses! I remember during my first pregnancy with Otis how everyone always reacted so strangely to my responses during conversations and I could not always altogether grasp what we were talking about. It was very confusing. But now I find it entertaining to read e-mails and text messages from friends from that period. Thank you for putting up with me! 

 

What are your top 5 favorites picks from Boob’s spring/summer collection 2017?

1. Dress Tilda
The ultimate summer dress; I plan to live in it. I love the pockets!

2. Simone sleeveless top
A stylish classic that goes with a skirt or jeans. A must-have.

3. Once-on-never-off skirt
So comfortable and stylish. It’s my “ace” in the closet now during pregnancy and it’s definitely going to be there afterwards too.

4. Fast Food singlet 2-in-1
The perfect tank with a built-in bra. It’s the best undergarment because it holds everything in place.

5. Playsuit
I’m looking forward to the summer and hanging out in the sandbox in this with a pair of sandals.
