I have so many feelings. And that’s okay.

I often find myself thinking about motherhood, and what it means to me. One disclaimer I want to make before writing anything else is: I love my daughters and they are the most important people in my life. I don’t have any regrets about having children, and they are my blessings – I truly believe…

My Favourite Trend of 2019

If you’re anything like me and find shopping a mission for modest clothes, then 2019 must have been a treat for you. I absolutely LOVED going into shops this year as I found a range – nay – a variety of things I could wear. I’m not one that wears tight, revealing clothes; so my…

I Remember

Last week I celebrated a big birthday. Turning 30. Wow. And phew. What a journey its been. I remember being a teenager and thinking, by the time I’m 30 – I will have it all figured out. I probably will be married, few kids, good job – maybe living abroad. Happy to report, I have…

Childs Farm and it’s Magic Moituriser

Like most first time mums-to-be, I did a lot of research while I was expecting. There were so many questions to be answered, and the crazy planner inside me had a field day with spreadsheets of comparing products and getting organised. A key thing for me was picking the right products to use on my…

Binging RN: Workin’ Moms

Maternity has been an eye-opener when it comes to shows that focus around motherhood – and I feel like this past year, the number of shows aimed at mums has increased. Lucky me. Workin’ Moms is a Netflix original based on a bunch of moms in Canada who are navigating life as new mothers and…

What I Though About the NCT Course

Taking prenatal classes is almost a given for the first pregnancy. Our midwife was onto us to register from week 20, whether it was the midwife-led ones or any other organisation. Hubby and I opted for the much popular NCT ones, which looks at your catchment and due date, and matches you with couples in…

Travel Beauty Essentials

Beauty has taken a huge shift in the past decade – I remember being at university about 10 years ago, the pre-instagram years and there wasn’t a focus on contouring, highlighting or lip lines as much as there is now. Whether it’s social media causing the shift or just women becoming more aware of the…

Banana Pancakes

This is one of my favourite recipes to make for my daughter as it’s easy, quick and super yummy. She is a very picky eater, and I have struggled with weaning a lot – and I continue to every day, 3 times a day. I’m yet to feel satisfied with the amount she eats, as…

Things We Love – July

I got this idea from Salem Bishop, over at Growing in the Shadow and couldn’t help but share my version of it with a little twist. I’ll be sharing things I love, along with things my little one is loving right now too! If anyone’s wondering, here are things I am loving this July. Fabletics Leggings I would…

Hospital Bag 101

It’s so hard to believe, but exactly 1 year ago today I packed my hospital bag as I was 36 weeks. That one step really put things into perspective as I often felt like it was an out-of-body experience and the pregnancy wasn’t really happening to me. I’m not sure if a lot of mums-to-be feel…
