You’ll never find us without our phones mamas (such is the 21st century) and it’s no secret that we’re addicted to Instagram. After no small amount of time spent scrolling down our news feeds and trawling the tags, we’ve found some absolutely amazing mamas both in Dubai and a little further ashore. Check out who we’re girl crushing on and remember to follow and double tap mamas. Oh, and of course, follow us @sassymamadubai if you haven’t already to see what we’re getting up to in the City of Gold…we couldn’t resist the shameless promotion.
Talk about street style inspiration, mama! This beautiful Instamama hails from Kuwait and I want every single one of her outfits, whether she’s keeping with tradition with a gorgeous abaya or rocking out something straight out of the pages of Vogue. And of course, her kiddo’s adorable. Follow all of her adventures on The Hybrid.
Emily, the blogger behind Dubai Our Sandbox, is the ideal Sassy Mama – always on the go, juggling the kiddos and all while making it all look so damn easy. Whether she’s dashing off to Fairmont the Palm with the kiddos or checking out Nyla House’s Ripe Pop-Up market, she’s got her finger on our city’s pulse for certain.
Now, when we were talking about who our favourite Instagrammers of all time are, Eva Chen’s name inevitably popped up. This new mama hits the streets of every fashion capital hard as the editor-in-chief of Lucky Magazine with no small dosage of charm, chic and a following way up in the 328 thousands.

Aussie mama Georgia has an artistic eye and that translates into her gorgeous images: both on her personal Instagram and in the watercolour paintings she creates. Aside from her canvases (which you can snap up here), she’s also the lifestyle editor and a writer for The Grace Tales.
This Bali-based mama is constantly on the go with her clan in tow. Not only does Claire get to go off and see super cool things, her kids seem to be quite the characters as well – follow her for a case of wanderlust blues and time spent planning your next tropical holiday.

This yogi’s has an absolutely impeccable form and no shortage of super cool leggings, however she’s become one of our favourite insta-mamas because she turns her passion into an activity for her and her daughter. That said however, it is a little depressing knowing that a toddler’s got a better downward dog than you do.

Now if you’re constantly combing Pinterest for interior design inspiration, you’ll definitely want to be following Linda D’s Instagram. (She and her 7000+ Instagram followers definitely agree.) She’s always got crisp and quirky new designs that look straight out of a catalogue and I desperately want to be her next dinner guest just to get a glimpse of her house.
Okay, so I’ve got a bit of a girl crush on Louise. And who wouldn’t honestly, she’s editor-in-chief at Harper’s Bazaar Arabia, mama to two beautiful children, one of our Sassiest Mamas and owner of an absolutely killer closet. Whether she’s having a tender moment with the kiddos, killing it at crossfit or chilling out at fashion week, her feed’s never a dull moment.

While we’re not entirely sure what Mojeh does, we definitely want to be doing it. This fashionista mama is always fab from head to toe (and usually in designer – life goals!) and you’ll see her adorable selfies with her son cropping up all over the place. He’s quite the little sartorialist too.

Sofia Gouveia is the uber cool London blogger behind Mrs Sofia Gouveia, marketing extraordinaire and mother to gorgeous little 3 year old fashionista Suri. Sugar, spice and all things nice – from afternoon tea to marvellous toy trips to Harrods, Sofia’s insta posts of her life with Suri all have a characteristically beautiful pastel hue that captures the magic of motherhood.
We love travelling the world through these two mamas whose cabin-crew background has instilled a passion for exploring even with mini’s in tow. Whether they’re on an adventure in Dubai or somewhere further afield, we feel seriously inspired with every pic.
Louise, a super cool British mama, is an avid blogger (and occasional contributor to our own website – woohoo!) and her feed bursts at the seams with personality: whether she’s digging into a very Percy Jackson-esque stack of blue pancakes, nipping off to the beach for a bit of family time or exploring the golden city with her men in tow.
Malaysian mama Samantha Lee takes kids’ meals to the next level with her adorable plates which are sure to drive any child wild. Whether she’s whipping up a hammy Peppa Pig (somewhat adorably morbid), a nutella taxi or even a cheeky Psy platter, mealtime will never be boring again.

Now we’ve had our eye on Tuesdays Child for a little while, a super fashionable blog for mamas in the UAE run by the fab Heidi Raeside. Accordingly, her Instagram is nothing short of sartorial and her family stars in quite a few of her Dubai adventures amidst the fashion covers and Gap collaborations.
