To My Mum on Mother’s Day

Dear Mum,

You’re not really one for big emotional outbursts so I hope that me writing this and showing it to the world won’t make you uncomfortable.
We don’t do these soppy moments often and so I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you and to celebrate you as my mum. Because as you, and everyone who reads my blog will know, I am an emotional person and I like to have these outbursts from time to time. Continue reading “To My Mum on Mother’s Day”

‘You Can’t Go Wrong’ Mother’s Day Gift Guide

Mother’s Day seems to have sprung out of nowhere this year! I blame the snow for that as usually it feels much more spring like by this point in the year. Mother’s Day means all sort of things to different people. For some it is about celebrating their own Motherhood, for others it’s for their Mum and for some it is simply a day of celebrating the significant women in their life. Whatever Mother’s Day means to you, I’ve put together a gift guide that will hopefully include something for everyone’s tastes. I feel like most of these items are things you really can’t go wrong with, hence the name of the post! My own Mum is actually notoriously hard to buy for, and if I got her anything from this list, it almost certainly would go wrong. But if you have a Mum who is easy to buy for then this is the list for you!

So, We Co Sleep Now?

Ahhh sleep. I honestly feel I could dedicate this whole blog to the subject of sleep and never run out of things to talk about. Don’t worry, I won’t do that, but you get my point! To put it nicely, we’ve been on a bit of a… journey with Darcie’s sleep recently. If you follow me on Instagram, you will have seen my daily rants on the subject over the last month or so, but up until this point I have kept it off the blog. I had this idea that I would just wait until all our problems were solved and then write a long post about it all. But the weeks keep going by, and the problems aren’t going, just changing. So I thought I would do a little update now, mainly because I just need to pen my thoughts to paper (obviously not literally, this is the 21st century duh!). Continue reading “So, We Co Sleep Now?”

Dear Darcie, You Make Me Better

Today is International Women’s Day and I’ve been loving it. All day today I have seen inspiring messages from both men and women about women who inspire them, motivate them and educate them. I love that we have a day all about celebrating women and so I wanted to write a post of my own, to mark this day. Last year I wrote International Women’s Day// The Things I Want to Teach My Daughter and so this year I wanted to look at it from the other side. This is a letter to Darcie, my darling daughter. This is a thank you for all of the things that you have taught me and shown me so far in your little lifetime. Continue reading “Dear Darcie, You Make Me Better”

Treat Yourself With Boohoo Maternity this Mother’s Day

I’m sure I’m not the only person who tends to lose their way a bit when it comes to maternity fashion. (If it is just me, then somebody please tell me the secret!). My maternity wardrobe basically consists of a couple of pairs of maternity jeans and lots of stretchy tops. Which is fine for the most part, but every so often I find myself so totally bored by my maternity wardrobe and completely uninspired as to what to wear. I’m conscious of my changing body and while I try hard to celebrate my bump and embrace the changes, sometimes that’s a lot easier said than done. I know that clothes play a big part in my self confidence. If I feel happy and confident in what I’m wearing, it really shows. So that’s why I’m trying harder this pregnancy to find some maternity clothes that actually make me feel really good, and ‘like myself’. I lost myself last time I was pregnant, the clothes I was wearing weren’t anything I would normally wear, and I felt so conscious of that at the time.
