Who is Sunday Soldiers?

Who is Sunday Soldiers?

Hey locals, 

So we getting asked on the reg' about what Sunday Soldiers means.

Where did the name come from? Are you a religious brand? Is your name Sunday? Are you from a military background? 

I really didn't think too much of it when we first started the brand. When we first decided to start Sunday Soldiers, I had a list of 'Rules' for our brands name: 

  1. Must be two words 
  2. No kids names (What if we failed? What if we sold the business?) 
  3. Must be a name that we can use to create a community (We were...


School holiday fun for Mum's that hate craft

School holiday fun for Mum's that hate craft

Ermagheeerd, is it school holidays AGAIN? Already? 
Don't get me wrong. I love my kids. Obviously. But school holidays can be a challenging time. 

Pros? Not making school lunches. 
Cons? Becoming a 24/7 snack bitch to your little cherubs 

While I generally think of myself as a hands-on, patient, caring and imaginative mum, during school holidays I am faced with a big ass truth. I'm probably not.

Hey locals (and readers!) 
So, if you follow Sunday Soldiers, you might have heard the term 'Locals Only' before. Locals Only has featured on our clothing for a couple seasons now and it's planned to feature in collections into the future. It's so much of an integral part of Sunday Soldiers that we actually legally trademarked the term. 
But why? What does it even mean? 

We asked our Facebook group what the term meant to them. 
We had some of the following responses: 

"I love it, where we live it makes sense...


My Bucket List!

My Bucket List!

I'm forever saying 'That's going on the bucket list!' or 'Well, that's ticked off the bucket list!' and talking about this hypothetical bucket list that I have.

With all the losses that our family has sadly endured over the last couple years, it's really put a lot of things into perspective for me. I'm 28 years old, am I where I want to be in life? What DO I want from life? How am I going to get there? I spend a depressing about my time pondering my own fate and the fact that my 20's have just soared by. I'm...


When tragedy hits not once, but twice.

When tragedy hits not once, but twice.

Hey locals,

I'm writing this blog post through tears today. You know when you read about something so sad, it's like it hits you personally? You're so genuinely heartbroken for this person, it physically moves you.

I think as mother's, we relate to other mothers on a special level. That isn't to say that men or ladies without kids can't relate to mum's. I'm not saying that at all. It's just different. When you're a mum, you're a part of a village. When someone's child is hurting, there's a maternal instinct that takes over. When you see another mum suffering,...
