• AN HONEST UPDATE

    If you have watched my ‘how I felt after having a baby’ video, you’ll know that just after Lawson was born, I struggled for quite a few weeks with motherhood, bonding and generally just adjusting to the change. Well, nearly 7 months in, I’m kinda finding myself back there again. I did not see this

  • 10 WAYS I AM #ROCKINGMOTHERHOOD

    I was tagged by the lovely Dhillondeeds to take the #rockingmotherhood challenge – and if I’m honest, the tag couldn’t have come at a worse time! The last two weeks with Lawson have been a real challenge, I’ve just been trying to get through the days with what has felt like a massive lack of

  • BABY FIRST FOOD IDEAS

    We first noticed about 2 months ago that Lawson was polishing off his bottles like an absolute truck, and every time we increased his feed by an ounce, he’d polish that off too and want more… Thus, we have started weaning! I was super excited to start weaning Lawson and watching him try new tastes

  • LESSONS OF A FIRST TIME MUM #3

    In a couple of weeks time, I will be the proud owner of a 5-month-old baby. Seeing as the last ‘Lessons in Motherhood’ post was when Lawson was eight weeks old (where has my baby gone?!!), I thought I should update you on some more lessons I’ve been learning as a new mother. 1. You

  • LOST IN MOTHERHOOD

    Today’s post is quite a personal one, but one that I’d like to air out and get into the open. I mean, what else is blogging for, really? When I was pregnant, I remember reading a plethora of articles about motherhood, and repeatedly came across some version of this phrase: “You will find yourself again.”

  • MUMMY DATES PROJECT 2017

    The lovely Louise Pentland off of Sprinkle of Glitter (blog) and Sprinkle of Glitter (YouTube) has blown my mind with her new project for 2017, which encourages mamas everywhere to basically spend more quality, present time with their kids, and blog about it. So naturally, I’mma be ALL. OVER. THIS. Any excuse to get out

  • POST BABY BODY TALK

    Ugh. I really don’t want to write this post. Weight-loss/health based blog posts tend to be a bit controversial right now because everyone has their own opinions (and rightly so) about ways of maintaining their health that works for their bodies. So this post is really just me sharing my thoughts about my post-baby body,

  • FIVE TIPS FOR SURVIVING ILLNESS WITH A BABY

    I write as I feel inspired. This week, I had wonderful intentions of writing a ‘Lessons I Learned During 2016’ blog post after reading Robin Sharma’s extensive list of 26 (he must have had a great year). But to tell you the truth, other than ‘you’ve got a higher pain threshold than you thought’ and

  • LESSONS OF A FIRST TIME MUM #2

    The day Lawson had his first vaccinations is the day I realised how much becoming a mother has ruined my ability to hold my s*** together. It’s a funny story… Twenty-four hours prior to his immunisations, I naturally spent a significant portion of time Googling. ‘How do I look after a baby with a fever?’
