Operation Daycare

If you follow us on Instagram or Facebook you might have seen these lovely photos we posted on Friday.

Aren't we amazing and have it so

Weren’t we having a FABULOUS day! Delicious bubbly to celebrate being picked as finalists in the 2014 Bupa Blog Awards at a lovely place in the city and no children! We had uninterrupted conversations and for a short moment I remembered how easy things once were.

This however, was my highlight reel. To get to this point, bubbles in hand and adult conversation under way, took a fair bit of effort. Getting my little human to daycare went something along these lines, enjoy: Read more

Wake up call

This post is a once off and I am sharing this story with you because there is a slight chance it might help someone else.

I’m 33 and healthy. I think everyone who knows me would vouch that I am fit AND healthy actually. Fairly sleep deprived but we’re getting on top of that. I exercise most days, I like being active and I see a personal trainer once a week. I am heavily into nutrition and eat a healthy, balanced diet.

I also have a strong family history of early-onset heart disease. My father had a mild heart attack when he was 42 and by the time he was 49 had triple by-pass surgery. His father died at 54 on what was his seventh heart attack I believe the story goes. Heart disease is prevalent in his brothers as well. Read more

Big Bloggy News: We are finalists in the Bupa blog awards!

Big News - Image Credit Robyna MayWe have some BIG news. A little while ago, we entered the Bupa blog awards. We know we are infants in blog land, as new, keen and ever-learning as our babies but we believe in what we are saying.  And so we entered.
We believe it’s important to reflect on our identities and how they change through life.  We believe it’s important to truly value motherhood. We believe that every single one of us has passions, talent and purpose that deserve to be recognised and put to good use. And it turns out, other people believe in us and the things we stand for too.

Ta-Da!!! We are a finalist in the Bupa parents to be and babies category.

Owning it does not mean you’re a wanker

I still remember the first time I did it. 

My heart was beating loudly in my chest, my cheeks were flushed and burning. I double checked the spelling in #everydaystyle & @stylingyou and hit SHARE. I had just posted a photo of the outfit I was wearing on Instagram. For the rest of the day, all I could think was, “Does everyone think that I’m a wanker?”
