I honestly thought that back in the day when I was a young, single, childless woman, that I was hard on myself. I would endlessly beat myself up over situations, actions and behaviours. Silly things like getting too drunk, burning the candles at both ends, eating way too much food, not being slim enough, not seeing enough of my friends. The kind of things that I give zero f’s about now, other than my friends of course.
As a nation, we are improving the awareness of mental health and digital media has thankfully played a positive part in this and we are able to spread the message more widely and independently. But for years, mental health has been covered up and has always been a taboo subject.
We get one life, right? Well, one on planet Earth. The one life we do get should be lived as best as we possibly can. Life can be hard – even more so for some. Life deals us a hand but it’s how we react to that hand is what shapes the future.
I’ve always been called an optimist. I’d like to think we could all live in a world of love and harmony because life really is too short to be negative, especially to one another. Which leads me onto motherhood! Motherhood is a personal journey, no two children are the same, no one method works for all. Motherhood is like the yellow brick road, it’s full of optimism, hope, wonder and enjoyment but on the way, you will meet people that will teach you lessons in life and there will be times you are challenged, you will question yourself and often you’ll have your own personal witch (or two) to feed your fears.
If you follow me on Instagram, you would see I do enjoy dressing the girls in the same or similar pieces. Personally, I find it easier to dress the girls the same because it avoids arguments in our case. They do have their own likes and dislikes, but when it comes to clothes they prefer to match.
They have a very diverse wardrobe and I do try make sure they have a variety of options and colours when it comes to their clothes. Even their dressing up wardrobe is diverse, ranging from storm trooper outfits to princess and pirate outfits.
As long as they feel good, I don’t care what they wear – it’s how they feel is what matters. But it just so happens, everything I dress them in, always looks super cute and super cool on them.

Without getting too mushy, part of me is super excited to say this and part of me if slightly sad. A short and sweet one from me over here today. Super excited because I am following my passion and sad because it’s an and of an era. I have just launched my new blog and I have a whole new love for blogging again. I would love for my existing readers to follow me over here for my new adventure.
Finally, spring is in the air which means, the end of dark mornings and early nights; more sun, more light and more happiness. It also means you can start peeling off the layers of clothing we have all been accustom to through the winter months. Granted, it’s not quite floaty dresses and strapless tops weather just yet, but it does mean a bit more thought can go into your wardrobe! Hoorah!
With that being said, I have been doing a spot of shopping over on Love The Sales website and have found some perfect Converse clothing in the sale. I love Vans but I am slowly becoming a Converse convert and I have popped together this little ensemble to share with you which can be mixed and matched with some amazing options over on Love The Sales.
There’s only so much one person can take. I had good feelings about today, I thought Wednesday 8th March is going to be a really good day. Turns out I was wrong. My day started with one of my twins screaming at me for no reason – my eyelids hadn’t even opened at this point. It’s spiralled into me having an anxiety attack and now I am in the middle of a black hole, questioning everything about my life right now. Followed by bad news and just feeling so exhausted. Sigh!
