In both cases we always have our back up SMOOOTHIEEEE to either fill her up when she won’t eat so I know she’s getting in all the nutrients she needs or to help try to fill her up when she’s non-stop eating ALL – DAY – LONG .Read More
For a lot of new mums, ‘me time’ is very limited. We tend to get caught up in our daily lives with not enough emphasis placed on our well being.

I'm not going to lie - I am a big old pram snob. I have a slight addiction and my eyes are always on the hunt when I'm out and and about for the best prams and I'm forever pointing them out to my husband who just rolls his eyes at me. My child count is 1 and my pram count is 5. If I could I'd have a lot more but I think my husband may divorce me if he comes home to one more pram.

I struggle with anxiety when it comes to many things. Most of these are triggered by things that make me either feel out of control, when I feel overwhelmed or things that surround my own personal body image.

So, over the years I have learnt many ways to cope and overcome anxiety surrounding travel. Just because you see me traveling a lot it doesn't mean it's not anxiety provoking for me but learning to deal and overcome this is growth and isn't that the aim with our mental health to grow and change to become stronger?Read More

Throughout your life as a woman, before you have even had children of your own we hear about the pregnancy myths. How you get a pregnancy glow, if you have heartburn your baby will surely be hairy. If you carry high it’s a girl or low it’s a boy. Well no matter what, it is something that we as women are so excited about. Falling pregnant and becoming a mother is a rush. We wait those 40 long weeks that seem to drag and drag. Some women breeze through and look as remarkable as they always did. But a large amount of us women crave the perfect pregnancy only to feel miserable throughout it. It really is a challenging experience for a woman, and is actually quite a difficult journey. Clearly growing a human life is no walk in the park, but the emotional affects it has on us during this time is a force too intense to put into mere words. Postnatal depression is something that we all are aware of. We just know that it exists, whether or not we have discovered it first hand or through the experiences of others.Read More

Keeping up with fashion trends can be as hard as trying to keep a child tame after a eating an entire bag of jellybeans, yep, that HARD! But this month I thought we could back off “whats new” and focus on “what you've already got” as far as fashion is concerned.
I know being stylish isn't always fun, trust me, I get around in my gym gear (even though I only go once a week) for most of the week, and honestly wash my hair maybe twice a week if I get a minute to do so.Read More
