Essential Oils that saved my bacon travelling with a toddler

Last week we spent around 12 days traveling to Sydney then New Zealand… this might not sound like much but it’s more than enough with a pint sized 2.5 year old. Trying to pack and choose which oils to take was a tough decision & you might remember a late night switcheroo following a ‘sore tummy’ the night before we left. Next time I … Read More Essential Oils that saved my bacon travelling with a toddler

Trust yourself, trust in the universe and do what feels right for YOU (breastfeeding, sleeping and mama joys)…

I was sitting in my sons rocking chair nursing him to sleep earlier and thought to myself ‘god I can’t believe I was told NOT to do this’. I have loved every single moment that I have been able to feed my son, and especially the feeding him to sleep.  It really gives me the shits that new mums (in fact all mums) can’t … Read More Trust yourself, trust in the universe and do what feels right for YOU (breastfeeding, sleeping and mama joys)…

My top tips for staying sane as a busy mama…

A quick google search of the phrase ‘busy’ and one feels overwhelmed… alas you stumble across definitions such as ‘having a great deal to do’ which personally I don’t feel really cuts the mustard.

Before I became a mum I used to work long hours, give my clients and staff 200% and often came crashing down. I ate at my desk, took work home & practised little self care. Once I fell pregnant, and even just before, I was a little better at looking after me but still gave too much of myself to my work (don’t ask … Read More Passion, purpose and procrastination…

My journey into motherhood and how it changed me…

So my journey into motherhood (or rather that really uplifting title of home duties you see on those bloody forms) began just 7 months and 6 days ago (is that allllllll?)… to me it feels like a FREAKIN LIFETIME, especially because I am certain this is just one of the many things I was put on this planet to do (sorry husbo if you … Read More My journey into motherhood and how it changed me…

To blog or not to blog…

So the decision to write a ‘blog’ brought up tonnes of mean girl thoughts …. you know that little inner critic that often leaves you feeling deflated and so far from the present it isn’t funny? Some of the things she told me were… who would read it? would anyone even WANT to read it? do you have anything of value to say? your not in … Read More To blog or not to blog…
