I have a cousin who was born three days after me, so we grew up as twin sisters and this I consider such a gift.

"We grew up with our grandparents spending half of the year in the mountains and when I think I back I always smile," Margherita Cardelli reminisces about her childhood in Italy. She'd make pasta with her great grandmother, ride horses, ski in the mountains – to say it was idyllic is an understatement.

Let's get straight to the facts. Parents (particularly of babies) are obsessed with sleep.

How much they're receiving (or not). How to optimise their children's sleep environments. How do dress them correctly for the season. How to make sure every second of shut-eye counts. Need we go on? Now in this environment when we're all forced to stay at home … Let's just say that obsession has been stepped up a notch. Which is why ergoPouch – always our go-to for all things child sleep-related – has become even more of a staple in the homes of The Grace Tales team.

We're officially at the half way point. And this has been one of the first winters where I haven't wished it away.

Maybe because we've had no choice but to get nice and cosy because of COVID-19 or because I've made my home more of a retreat, but I'm enjoying these colder months far more than years past.

Before we visited Helena Vestergaard in her home on Sydney's Northern Beaches for this photo shoot, I had done my research. I knew that the young mother-of-two would be laid back, incredibly cool and of course, impossibly beautiful. But there was a whole lot that took me by surprise...

For one, many mothers who show off the free-spirited beachside persona that Helena embodies so naturally will say that they'd like to have a "house full of children." Helena, however, tells me in a no-nonsense tone that, "We are absolutely done with two. Three would be total chaos."

Nicole Trunfio is something of a motherhood muse. The supermodel made history with that iconic Elle cover, pictured breastfeeding her infant son Zion. It was a historic moment in magazine publishing, as candid and beautiful as it was talked-about.

Currently, she's cocooned at her Austin ranch with husband, musician Gary Clarke Jr, son Zion, daughter Gia, and their newest addition baby Ella, just seven weeks old. And cocooned is the word. Not only is Nicole lapping up time in isolation thanks to the coronavirus outbreak – she's also dressed without fail in her new maternity-and-beyond label, Bumpsuit. A curation of technically designed, high performance 'jumpsuits' that stretch and rebound with a mother's changing body, Bumpsuit is designed to take the capsule wardrobe to new heights.

The Grace Tales is a global lifestyle platform for mothers searching for style, substance, and solidarity. Driven by creating content, community and connection, we celebrate the paradox of modern motherhood; the struggle and the beauty, the joy and the relentlessness.

There isn't much that's more luxurious than a superfine merino wrap. Whether draped over shoulders to dress up an outfit, or tucked into a carry-on for the ultimate travel companion, it's an invaluable piece in any complete wardrobe...

Margie Moroney – the founder of HOLOS – knows this better than most. Having spent 25 years working with the very best fine-wool processors in Italy, Margie has created a collection that will not only prove to be one of the hardest working pieces in your wardrobe, but also one of the most luxurious.

Megan Gale, Rebecca Judd, Whitney Port, Millie Macintosh, Rachel Zoe, Ruby Rose, Zoe Foster Blake, Anna Heinrich, Elyse Knowles, Rachael Finch and Natalie Bassingthwaighte – no, it's not the guest list for a VIP red carpet event...

They're the women Lana Wilkinson counts among her clientele, and some of them are even her shoe namesakes. The Elyse is a streamlined, simple mid-height while the Bec boasts a stiletto heel with a fluorescent ankle strap. Given Lana's label only launched last year in 2019, the glittering clientele is even more impressive…
