Just how do I edit my instagram photos?

What filters do I use? How do I make the white stand out? How do I remove certain tones? These are a few of the questions I get asked pretty regularly, so I thought I’d fill you in on just how I edit my photos for instagram. I use my iPhone for the majority of my photos and every now…

Hey baby, why you gotta be so sad?

A few weeks ago, I read something online that really got to me. It was on one of those Facebook mum forums that we’re all a part of. I usually just have a quick skim of these groups and continue my online shopping habit or go back to the pretty Instagram world. But in this instance, I couldn’t. I had…

five things I love about you

The days, the weeks and then the years seem to go by so quickly. I’m forever in this weird spot where I cannot wait for Eva to keep growing and changing and learning new things, but then I’m constantly thinking back, remembering all these little moments and quickly I feel this longing and sadness that she’ll never be that tiny…

My top seven birth tips

When people asked me about my birth plan and I told them I’d booked into a birth centre, the most common response was “oh what’s the difference between that and the labour ward?”.

Everywhere I look I see babies. Babies or pregnant women, and it makes me want to just sit at home and have a good old snot-dripping-out-of-my nose cry. This is how I felt this time last year.

Motherhood and Me

I had my little babe just on five months ago. Five whole months of doing this “being a mum” thing. Overall, I think I’m doing okay so far. Some days I’m rocking it, other days I’m a mess. Eva is still living and breathing, she’s putting on weight, she’s sleeping (occasionally) and learning new things, so I guess I’m ticking…

Body After Baby

So I’ve just had a baby. Well actually, I can’t say JUST anymore. More like four months ago. Okay pretty much five if I’m being totally honest with you. I’ve got wobbly bits that used to be firm, my linea nigra hasn’t gone away, and my booty is three times the size it used to be, watch out Kimmy K,…

The birth of Eva James

Wednesday 6 January 2016, the day our little love Eva James was born and changed our lives forever. At 41 + 3, my patience on playing the waiting game had totally run out. The calmness of “oh she’ll come when she’s ready” had gone and I was all “get this baby the hell out of me now”. It felt like…
