I’m Grateful To Blogging Because

Life before blogging seems like a distant memory now. Sharing my life on the internet and building up my little community has become such a fundamental part of my life that I can’t really imagine how it would be not to have my blog. I’m grateful to blogging for so many reasons and I would always encourage anyone thinking about starting a blog to just do it. Second to starting my family, I would say it is the most positive thing I have ever done and the thing that has made the most incredible difference to my life. I’ve written a list of reasons why I am SO grateful to blogging mainly just to express some gratitude for the path my life has taken, and also to hopefully encourage anyone else thinking about it to take the plunge and start blogging.

How To Make Being A ‘Work From Home Mum’ Work For You

It still seems alien to me to refer to myself as a ‘work from home mum’. This must mainly be due to the fact that primarily I see myself as a ‘stay at home mum’ and also that I genuinely love my job so much that it often doesn’t seem like work. But still the fact remains, I am self employed, I earn money, I work from home. Being able to stay at home to raise my children whilst earning my own income on the side is a dream come true for me, but that doesn’t mean that it is always plain sailing. It’s not the ‘easy life’ people could assume that it is. Over the past six months or so of being officially self employed I have certainly learnt the juggling act and gradually over time I’ve found a rhythm and a routine that works for me and my family. My priority is always Darcie (and Ernie when he arrives) so as much as I can I try to do the bulk of my work while she is asleep or entertained by other people. I stayed at home to look after her not to become a blogger and that is always at the forefront of my mind. (more…)

Brunch at Lakaz Maman

Last Sunday I was lucky enough to be invited to try out the new Breakfast menu at Lakaz Maman in Southampton. Myself and a few other local bloggers all piled into this beautiful ‘home from home’ style restaurant and had a lovely morning tasting the new menu and enjoying the atmosphere. Lakaz Maman is a restaurant opened by Master Chef winner Shelina Permalloo who wanted to create a relaxed restaurant focusing on delicious Mauritian food and a homely atmosphere. I can definitively say she has achieved both of these things and I look forward to returning to Lakaz Maman soon.

Life Goals

coffee-cup-stack-break.jpgI think it’s a common trait of our generation that we just LOVE setting goals. Whether that be small daily goals or big, ambitious life goals, it is a word that features frequently in our conversations. I try to set myself little daily or weekly goals which give me a good sense of accomplishment when I can tick them off my to do list and I also have a list of bigger goals that are always in the back of my mind. Things that I would really like to look back and think ‘Yes, I’m glad I did that!’ I’ve never actually made a physical list of these bigger goals and so I want to write them down now. This list has grown and changed throughout my life so far and I’m sure that it will continue to do so. But for now, in no particular order, these are my life goals.

Quitting Blogmas

pexels-photo-699372.jpegThe savvy amongst you may have noticed that my heart has not been in Blogmas lately. I’ve found myself with nothing to post and having to rack my brain for ideas just to quickly get something up that day. And so for this reason, I have decided to call it a day on Blogmas. I’ve always been a quitter, I write that with pride not shame as I firmly believe that if your heart isn’t in something or it isn’t making you happy, then it is time to walk away, to quit. I don’t want my blog to become a chore and just something to tick off my to do list. I want to keep it my hobby, my passion and so I won’t be forcing myself to write content just to fill the days and tick ‘Blogmas’ off my to do list. (more…)

Christmas Tag 2017.png
I was tagged by the lovely Rachael at From Rachael Claire to take part in her 2017 Christmas tag.

She was the perfect person to create this tag and I’ve really enjoyed taking part. At the end of the post I’m going to tag some other bloggers to take part and it would be amazing for you to go over and take a look at their blogs too. So let’s jump straight in!
