Why right now is an excellent time to start surfing.

‘tis the season where not only are the Sunday Soldiers team gearing up for Christmas (Us west siders are showing our East Coast team our magnificent south west over chrissy/new years, hopefully there will be a few tasty summer waves on the menu), we’re gearing up for showing our next season. That means lots of fashion trade shows, meetings, phone calls, Skype calls, road trips and plane trips, all to chat to our lovely stockists and potential stockists about why they should buy our new threads emblazoned with what is often a reflection of Elise or I.

Sunday Soldiers Christmas Guide!

Sunday Soldiers Christmas Guide!

Not sponsored - just cool shit that we think your kids will love! 
Argghh i LOVE Christmas but buying presents can be so stressful! We're really big on 'buy once, buy good' in this household. We try to invest in quality pieces that will last the kids for years. Each to their own, but I believe this really reduces the impact on our planet and the amount of toys we have just laying around not being used. That said, we also have 4 x boys and there's only so many items you can get...

Welcome to Milkbar '63

It's heeeere! 

Launch time is the MOST exciting event on the Sunday Soldiers calendar. We design our items around 18 months beforehand, so it's a LONG time to keep it to ourselves.

Organising freight, finding a forklift to unload it all, counting the stock, getting stockist orders out first, prepping all our images, uploading products to the website. The list goes on - and that's...

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.

Yep, I said it. I love spending time with the kids. But I want to do things like read books, choreograph dances to Britney Spears (am yet to have a child cooperative with this one), play basketball at the park or...
