People often ask me how I manage my Mum-life and freelance business. I have been told that I come across on social media as though I have my act together! Like I have said on my blog before I am a very organised person and I thrive on routine, lists and working hard. It comes rather naturally to me (sorry don’t hate me!). I dislike…

I’m a really busy Mum of (almost) 5-year-old twins. The majority of my week revolves around them. My typical weekly tasks involve the preschool run, running errands, shopping, meeting clients, the preschool pick-up, making dinner, bath & bed. As well as housework and ALL the other jobs that go along with being a Mum! Because I am getting them ready in the morning I don’t…

I caught up with a blogging friend the other day at a blogging & small business event and she mentioned to me that she didn’t get how I fitted all my commitments into my week!

I’d been to Ibiza with the girls (my first ever holiday abroad) been on a hen party to Portugal, as well as to Spain once or twice – and…

Harry & Lottie – my baby twins – have grown up in what feels like an absolute flash. One minute we were bringing them home from hospital, guiding, nurturing them both through newborn nights, teething, growth spurts, weaning, toddling and preschool…and now they are skipping off to reception class in a couple of months. All. The. Emotions. And the AMOUNT of people saying to me…

One of my favourite clothing brands for our whole family is Joules. The quality and style of their clothing is superb – and I am never disappointed when an item arrives through the post. Plus they always seem to last SO many washes and for years! My favourite pieces that I regularly buy myself from Joules are blazers and dresses. As a family we love…

Over the last few years (since becoming a Mum) I’ve not been one to obsess or spend lots of money on hair, make-up and beauty products. I always fancy trying new products out, but never really know where to start. I don’t always feel all that confident trying new brands either (over the years I have predominately stuck to the brands I like and know).…
