It felt only right to get back on my blogging mojo to write a breastfeeding list inspired by motherofalllists.com (insta is clemmie_telford, she's a babe and shares all the ups and downs of parenthood and is all about keeping it real people!) When I was pregnant my midwife asked me if I will be breastfeeding. … Continue reading My Breastfeeding List
As I'm writing this, I know I'm guilty for not taking enough time for myself to go out and meet friends and let my hair down. To be frank, the days can be long (and also the nights) and by the time it's the weekend I'm looking forward to my 8 am lie in. Bringing … Continue reading The importance of girl time when you’re a mum
Anyone else struggle finding a hearty snack that leaves you feeling satisfied and energised? I'm not an early morning person and waking up at 6 am (sometimes also at 3 am) to a crying baby often leaves me feeling drained and tired throughout the day. One thing that helps me put bounce in my step, … Continue reading No fuss energy balls
As Ivan is approaching his first birthday I thought I'd share some of his faves. First up are these Ella's Kitchen sachets which he first tried when he was 5 months and loved them ever since! There's such a huge range of flavours and meal types. His favourite lunch sachet is the Veggie Risotto (ok … Continue reading Ivan’s Favourites
Sleep? Full nights sleep? What is that again? Up until a few weeks ago I had a terrible sleep routine. I went to bed around 11/12 and starred at my phone until it started to burn my eyes and I would nod off. If my baby would wake up during the night I woke up … Continue reading My rules for a good nights sleep
Wow. Like Frank Ocean said, that's a pretty fast year flew by. 2017 has been truly epic, crazy, scary and blessed. I managed to push a baby out, keep him alive and now he's starting to learn to walk. A little human learning how to navigate and becoming a funny little peanut. He mostly likes … Continue reading My resolutions..
It's that time of the year again. This time Christmas has creeped up so quickly on me and not sure whether it's because I have a little one but one minute it was 4 weeks away then before you know it I'm in the supermarket on Christmas Eve (yes today) running around Tesco in search … Continue reading Overwhelmed at Christmas?
Boy oh boy. Another bloody post about social media. Good news this time. I've successfully withdrawn from Instagram. Yup. I have survived living my life without constantly scrolling through a load of crap for a whole a WEEK. Yay. Go me. I know it's a really silly achievement if you can even call it that … Continue reading Am I happier without Instagram?
Hey guys, Following from my last post I have decided to delete Instagram off my phone. After having a talk with my partner until 1 am about how social media affects me and most importantly makes me feel it started becoming clear to me. I punish myself everyday that I'm not thinner then curvier, that … Continue reading Starting a social media detox..
I check my phone everyday. All the time. I don't even realise when I'm reaching for it anymore it's like an automatic bloody manoeuvre. Instagram is the main culprit. I scroll and scroll endlessly gazing at blurred faces and edited bodies and see what my friends are up to. I've always compared myself to others … Continue reading Is social media depressing me?
