My hypnobirthing story

[The pain] was manageable then suddenly unbearable and I found myself asking why I thought it’d be a good idea to put myself through this again. Then, I held our son Brodie, and it all made sense. I felt the love that I felt when I met Taylor all over again. And I am now […]

You had a bad day. You are not a bad mumma.

Ever feel like a failure? Like you’re not equipped for this ‘mum’ thing? Like maybe the rest of the world has read some magical book with all the tricks on how to raise a child which you’ve obviously not read because you suck at this parenting thing while all the other mum’s seem to float […]

What’s in my hospital bag?

With less than eight weeks to go until our baby boy arrives, I figured now is a good a time as ever to get my hospital bag sorted. I’m actually a super organised person so I started packing a few weeks ago when I thought of things that I absolutely could not forget (putting these […]

Why things affect me so much more now that I’m a Mother

I remember the first time I cried tears of sadness after Taylor was born. She was 8 weeks old, snuggled up having a feed and dozing off. I was half asleep watching the news. Half the headlines went in one ear and out the other as I struggled to stay awake. But then came on […]

8 cheap beauty products I refuse to live without

KEYWORD: Cheap. Like I’m talking under $40 (AUD). I don’t know about you, but spending $100 on a 2ml eye serum to allegedly prevent wrinkles is not really my cup of tea. No one wants wrinkles, I get it… But is there really a need to spend so much freaking money on creams and serums we […]

The Letdown (it’s a goodie)

I scrolled past this series while scanning the Netflix app and added it to my ‘watch list’ for when Justin (fiance) wasn’t around. I knew he’d likely not find it as fun as I did (he’s weird like that – doesn’t enjoy Jane the Virgin either… scoff). Anyway, best decision ever because the main character […]
