You know who I mean. She is who you think you need to be, the epitome of perfect in your eyes and everything about her makes you want to throw up…. the relentless questioning of yourself, am I doing a good job when she seems to have it all together and I’m not even close? Why are her kids sitting nicely in the supermarket trolley and mine is currently trying to escape? How is she
Have you ever had one of those moments where it seems like everything going on around you is aimed directly at you? Like it’s the universe trying to tell you a message? I had a moment like that this week. And it was almost a bit scary. I was co-facilitating a learning session, discussing topics such as stress, resiliency and wellbeing. During one of the discussions, one of the participants shared a recent story with
This is a real #mumlife post… When you’re a working Mumma, there is one thing that pops up on your phone that is sure to fill your heart with dread… your child’s school/preschool/daycare/kindy (wherever they are when they are not with you) calling you! That is never good. Now if you’re a seasoned Mumma like me who has a daredevil child, this starts becoming a semi regular gig so when Tatum’s preschool number popped up
Have you ever listened to a song and realised it is speaking to your heart like no other has? This happened to me this morning. As I listened to the song, “Road less travelled” by Lauren Alaina (yes, I love country music). I listened long and hard to the words coming through my headphones. “You won’t make yourself a name if you follow the rules” was what first caught my attention. I never set out
Before you become a parent you have all the time in the world. You don’t see it, however, until you become a parent. All of a sudden your “free time” seems to diminish without you even realising it until one day you wake up and realise just how much you need a break. A break from your everyday reality. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love being a Mumma, and I absolutely unequivocally love our
“Behind every successful woman is a tribe of other successful women who have her back” A few weeks ago, in one of my posts, I mentioned that I would be introducing some new contributors to this website. Today, I want to introduce you to one of these fantastic ladies, Erin Hill. I have known Erin for nearly 7 years now. She’s a fantastic Mum & Wife who has been through a lot and always manages
There sure is a lot of negativity online. Often in the form of people voicing their opinions. Some people (trolls) just like to stir trouble. And some, it seems, just like to complain because they love the drama. Lately, I’ve noticed a lot of people posting about their frustrations at the amount of negativity online and it brought me to question what’s really the cause of it. Is there really that many people out there

For the final blog post of 2017, it’s only fitting that I write a tacky “year in review” post. And what a year it has been! On New Years Eve 2016, I was out celebrating the night with my boyfriend & his friend. During the evening, my BF brought up a tradition I’d not heard of before. He picks a word each year that’s his word for the year ahead. That word defines your goals,
Christmas is one of my favourite times of year! Yes… I am one of those annoying Christmas enthusiasts who loves to spread Christmas cheer and goodwill to others. I love the decorations, the giving, the silly Christmas songs… EVERYTHING about Christmas! However, Christmas hasn’t always been a great time for me. I’ve had a few  Christmases that have been ‘pretty awful’, to say the least. I’ve been thinking about what to post and share with
