  • At the end of this week, my baby will be 8 months old.
______
If you would have told me before I got pregnant that I would be breastfeeding her until 8 months, let alone one year, I would have said you were crazy.
______
If you would have told me that at 8 months, I wouldn’t even be close to letting go of breastfeeding my baby, I would have said you were having the biggest laugh.
______
If you had told me that breastfeeding would be one of the hardest and most rewarding things. One of the best experiences in my life. That I wouldn’t find parting with it an easy thought.... I would have told you that it’s just feeding a baby through a boob 🤷🏼‍♀️ what’s the big deal?
______
Moments like these with her make me feel whole. My heart can’t handle how quickly these last, nearly 8, months have come and gone. I cherish them. She’s my favourite part of life. She’s my new normal. She is everything.
______
Even though we only feed from the boob twice a day now (maybe 3 or 4 if I’m off!), it’s still the best part of my day.

  • Self Care isn't just for Sunday....... We all need to take time to look after ourselves 
It's important to recognise when you need to take a bit of me time and know what works for you 
So this evening I knew I needed to get myself up to bed, diffuser on, White Lavender Mint scent and just unwind 
Night all 💗

Who has a chokka-block half term?? We have a lot planned, and I know I will be trying to find the balance between having an awesome time with the kiddies and trying to get as much work done as possible!!! Who’s got ideas/ tips  for work life balance / multi tasking? •

Just Looking back at a suite I created for the lovely Emma and her beautiful venue surrounded by the countryside at @littleoakcornwall ❤️

Bakery fans are going to love this one. Rich vanilla pods hints of coconut and white chocolate make for a mouth watering melt...don't eat it!

Excited to share the latest addition to my #etsy shop: Bake off soy wax melt https://etsy.me/3bN8eWs

  • How was the first day of half term for you? Have you taken time off or are you still 
J U G G L I N G?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
A lot of women start their freelance/self employed journey because they're trying to balance their home/work life. I know I did. Flexible work is out there but it can be difficult to find. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What would you do if you could branch out on your own?

  • Just about 29 weeks. Hello third trimester!! HOW am I here so quickly? So wild how different this pregnancy is in every way; mentally, physically, all the ways. I’m making so many lists in my head, starting to organize moving the office, what ‘Mat leave’ will look like, how much should I take on, how will Ella adjust to the big change...So. Many. Things. Excited but super, super nervous 🙃

  • Really struggling this half term with working and not being able to be off with T - even on my half day off today she ended up being shuttled round various shops for essentials, then watching a film in front of the tv as I wasn’t well. It’s hard to see everyone’s lovely half term fun activity or trips out pics and not feel like a skint failure who is always ‘too busy’. She’s grown up so much this year and I only have her half the week - and I’m working the rest of the half term days this time.

Recently she’s made several comments about me working full time compared with her schoolfriend’s mummies. The truth is I can’t afford to pay the mortgage living round here if I don’t work the hours I do, but you can’t say that to a six year old. I wish I’d made cleverer financial decisions earlier in life but the fact is I have to try and fix things now...I just hope she doesn’t grow up to remember me always being too busy. 
Picture is from the craft kit that kept her busy this morning while I worked... I love it 🐠💖 #reallife #workingmum #adulting #sadness #notexactlypictureperfect #invisibleillness

  • Last week's rainy day #CorporateStyle, wearing a blazer over this Kmart teal floral midi dress to make it a little more formal for the office. Thought the extra layer would be a good choice with the rain too, although it wasn't too cold! Big fluffy dog in the way as she doesn't like rain and wanted lots of pats while I took pics 😂

Bag is my classic Rebecca Minkoff Regan satchel. Still kicking myself for missing a red one on eBay that sold for under $50!!! 😥 ----------- ----------- ------------ ----------- ------------ -------------- Screenshot this pic to shop the product details from the @liketoknow.it app, or click here: http://liketk.it/2Krub #liketkit #LTKitbag #LTKworkwear #bagoftheday #RebeccaMinkoff #everydaystyle #realmumstyle  #wearedonthestreet #casualcomfycorporate #kmartStyle #kmartaddict #dressOfTheDay

  • This is not insta vs reality...this is just reality! And what you can’t see behind me and Summer is another 50 dishes waiting to be washed or loaded into the dishwasher!

Today the house is a mess. It’s not anyone’s fault and it doesn’t reeeally matter but it just goes to show how hard it can be to stay on top of “basic” tasks as parents but especially when your kids are poorly.

We’ve barely left the house since Jasmine came down with an awful tummy bug on Friday and my life has pretty much consisted of wiping bottoms, washing hands, cleaning toilets, disinfecting surfaces, fetching drinks, giving cuddles, washing hands, breastfeeding and then saying no more breastfeeding, holding back hair, changing nappies, washing hands, sipping some tea, giving calpol and trying to be an indoors only entertainer because storm Dennis is fairly brutal and Summer isn’t heavy enough to withstand the winds!! Today we managed some sunshine and fresh air this morning which was so needed and this afternoon I had work and then took an hour to myself and @bearded.vegan.dad took the reigns. That hour was so very needed I can’t even tell you. Just to get out the house and breathe and not have a child on me or needing me was so incredibly refreshing. Time went by at light speed but I came back so rejuvenated that I even made an obstacle course for the girls in the living room, had renewed energy and patience and bed time was then right around the corner 😜

I was only able to do this because both our work patterns are flexible. I was only able to do this because I recognised the need to in myself. I was only able to do this because I communicated my needs and was listened to.

For so many Mamas, this wouldn’t be possible. For as much as our society is changing, for so many, the balance is still tipped in favour of Mama to be the main caregiver and put everything on hold when plans change and sickness strikes. It’s the load we carry, right?

Anyway, tomorrow is another new day and I’m hoping business can resume as normal!

This modern life....how does yours look today?

  • So ist es manchmal leider. Hab ich glatt mein Smartphone in Wien im WC liegen lassen... .
Ist morgen irgendjemand von euch grad zufällig auf dem Weg von Wien nach Oberösterreich, Bezirk Vöcklabruck? Der mir mein Handy mitnehmen könnte? .
Achja und ich bin gerade nicht telefonisch erreichbar, auch nicht auf whatsapp.

  • Unfortunately today I didn’t get to spend the first day of the Holliday’s with my children due to work which I always feel guilty  about but they’ve had a fab day with their grandparents.

My Monday’s are all about Finance, Training and Team coaching a stark contrast to each other, but equally vital to our business, passing on knowledge is key to survival, it’s such a privilege to them grow through their journey.

So my children have been passing their knowledge to me, they said I mustn’t throw my cotton wool pads away so we have  purchased these fab Reusable ones and a glass bottle for my cleanser.
Another plus they now tell me off if a light gets left on!

  • Thought I’d do a wee motivation progress chart! 
I have 16.5lb to my new target.... which works out at 1.5lb a week. Sounds easy peasy... however- I have a holiday and a hen weekend during this 12 weeks! I’m not going to put too much pressure on myself... just going to focus on getting a loss and going in the right direction! But if you know me... you’ll know that’s nonsense and I’ll put huge pressure on because I LOVE A CHALLENGE 😂

We’ll see what happens! One day at a time! .

  • Packing lots of orders that include Play Mats this week & we can see why.....
They’re super versatile, you can use them not only for tummy time, changing nappies, kick & play time but also fold up well enough to take them on the go with you. 
Have you ever seen anything sweeter then little Sophie Violet testing out her ‘Poppy’ Play Mat!

  • Most people have slight differences in the way their feet work such as what part of their foot strikes the ground first. Here are common running styles and the shoes that match that style.⠀
⠀
Pronation⠀
This style is when the runner wears the central part of the ball of the foot and a small portion of the outside of the shoe. Usually these types of runners exhibit mild to moderate pronation with medium to low arch.⠀
⠀
These types of runners need a stability shoe to stabilise the inward natural roll of the foot by reinforcing the arch in the midsole of the shoe.⠀
⠀
Overpronation⠀
Overpronation is when you are prone to wear the medial side or inside edge of your footwear. Usually these types of runners strike the ground and then roll inwards excessively.⠀
⠀
They are typically someone who has a flat foot or a very low arch. These types of runners need a motion control shoe. These shoes offer stiffer heels and a straight last to counter the over pronation.⠀
⠀
Supination⠀
This is also known as under pronation it is when you are prone to wear the outside of the footwear. Usually these types of runners strike the ground with the outside of their heel first and instead of rolling inward, they stay on the outside of their entire foot through the entire step.⠀
⠀
This type of running style usually exhibits a medium to high arch and needs a neutral shoe as they can guide the lateral (outside) pressure inwards by supporting your arch with cushioning.⠀
⠀
We suggest you get advice from your podiatrist to ensure you are selecting the right shoe fit for your biomechanics.⠀

  • In fact, being "busy" can often feel like working your butt off and still feel like you're never doing enough.

Stop and look at your list of to-do's today. Run each task through a filter and ask yourself, "Is this actually essential?" Does it need to be done today? Does it even need to be done by you?
​
​It's hard to let go of our busy badge in a society that honours and rewards the hustle and grind. But it doesn't have to be that way.

We can do less and still achieve our goals. ​Because doing less and dropping busy from our vocab has nothing to do with letting go of ambitions or striving for success.

It's about devoting more time and focus to what really matters to you. ​Leave us a note in the comments.

What can you do less of today, so you can spend more time on what you love? ​

  • This girl getting WAY out of her comfort zone the last couple of weeks and I’m so proud! 
How good is teaching your children growth ❤️ I really have been feeling grateful for the skills I’ve learned through my own journey and now being able to pass that on through words and actions. Be the example. Speaks way louder ✌🏼

  • Many women cringe when I invite them to do the following with their child. Take a look at this phrase:⠀
⠀
“Is there anything that we say to you or do that makes you feel uncared for by us?”⠀
⠀
The reason people cringe is because they’ve been taught that they need to be respected and in power over their child. I mean, that’s how we’ve seen this relationship dynamic growing up, isn’t it?⠀
⠀
You hear it all the time: ⠀
⠀
"Don't speak to me like that”⠀
⠀
“Who do you think you’re talking to?”⠀
⠀
“Iam your mum, you don’t speak to me like that”⠀
⠀
Personally, I cringe hearing those words. Talk about dictatorship. And I’ve done it myself. ⠀
⠀
So now I’m asking you to drop your weapons of power. They aren’t working. They never did. ⠀
⠀
And open the dialogue to being wrong. Asking your child about the times you got it wrong. When YOU were unloving. ⠀
⠀
Ironically, they’ll likely feel more heard and loved by this than the times you say, “I love you”. ⠀
⠀
Because when we say “I got it wrong” to someone, they feel our care from this. They feel how we aren’t trying to be powerful over them.⠀
⠀
The following is taken from my ebook, which is available in the link at the top of our page here:⠀
⠀
⠀
‘As with the above, this is an opportunity for clear communication. It ISN’T an opportunity for your child to air all the times he or she thinks you should have done their washing for them (if they are old enough to sort their own laundry and put it into the washing machine) nor is it a chance for them to ask for things that aren’t loving. It is simply an opportunity for them to learn that it is SAFE for them to voice how they are feeling and so for example if there IS something that you do or say that they really don’t like, and it really does make them feel disconnected to you... wouldn’t you want to know?’⠀

  • //: Check-in on your SAHM friends, they are not okay + this sh*t is AF! //
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
☝️ everyone thinks being a stay at home mom full time is easy.
— that we are lucky to be able to not have to work.
— that we are lazy. — that it’s not “real” work so we have nothing to complain about.
👉 but the truth is...it’s fucking lonely and overwhelming
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
✨You can’t do anything by yourself; go to the bathroom, enjoy a cup of coffee, read, hell you can’t even scrub the shit out of pants for the 3rd time in a day without someone crying or screaming at your leg.
You don’t get breaks unless they are sleeping; which even then you use that time to clean up
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
✨You struggle to come up with ways to entertain someone for literally 12 hours a day every day.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
✨You wear the same clothes that smell like sweat and tears for days at a time because it’s already stained and no use in ruining more clothes. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
✨You forget what it means or feels like to be an individual; because your entire existence now revolves around that child.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
✨You look at working moms and get jealous because you wish you could have an excuse to have an adult conversation without being interrupted.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
✨You lock yourself in the bathroom and scream into a towel while crying because you need a second to breathe; all while a child is banging on the door to get in...
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
☝️ let that sink in, most of us don’t even have the luxury to cry and be frustrated in peace..and when we do break down people question it; “like what do you have to cry about you get to sit home all day.”
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I was one of those people who judged SAHM’s. But I get it now. The people who said they’d be there to help have all but disappeared, and you’re left with this overwhelming sense of failure.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
✨My house isn’t clean, I’m not clean, the dishes aren’t done, I have screamed already today, I have cried, and I have felt so damn guilty that my child was here to witness it.
But I am alone....and I am lonely

  • On days like this its nice to be able to work from home! The idea of going out into that weather is far from appealing so I’m going to pop my work fleece on and get my coding on 👩🏼‍💻 These are the jeans I bought after Xmas in river island, and they’re a size 10 🙌🏻 this was a big milestone for me! Jeans are something I hate buying! Sizes vary so much, I could go into primark and not be able to get a leg into a size 12 let alone get the button or zipper up but I’ve always found river island pretty true to size so when I got into the 10 without having to try the 12 I was delighted! I like high waisted jeans but sometimes, with the mum pouch (c section mums will know what I mean!) I find they can sometimes emphasis the tummy, but the button fly works really well to disguise this I think. 
Wednesday again and only 2 days until Valentine’s Day! Do you love it or hate it? I have to say I’ve def been a valentines lover in the past but in recent years we’ve made it more about the kids, making sure the boys get little treats from me and karlie gets a rose and chocolates from her daddy, the same way my dad would have done for me and my sisters growing up. It’s a nice wee tradition that we carry on in our house in his memory. This year valentines has crept up on me and I didn’t even realise until yesterday it was this week 🙈 we will still keep our traditions but as long as I get a bit of chocolate I’ll be happy without any grand gestures 😂 xx
