Whichever category you may fit into, this post can still come in handy! We all have friends & eventually some of those friends will have babies! So even if you don’t need any of it yourself – I…

Travelling Earthside

January 1, 2017

Firstly.. Whenever I read the words ‘birth story’ (yes, mine is in disguise) I immediately associate it with gruesome photos & too much information about someone’s bits. Don’t get me wrong, there are a lot of great stories that are very interesting to read, many very uplifting & can definitely help take the element of surprise away from what you can expect in labour. Before having Sophie, I would never EVER read these stories. So when I become pregnant, I eventually realised…

Her Hospital Bag

July 11, 2016

Not long now…. Till we meet our gorgeous girl! So this week has been all about ensuring our bags are packed & ready to go, getting the house & car sorted for her to arrive at any given moment & learning the art of patience when faced with an allen key, an instruction manual that has been written in 500 different languages and a piece of furniture or playtime toy to be assembled… Fun! I honestly believe a few of…

A Tiny Lady is Coming

June 11, 2016

A beautiful baby shower….. Overwhelmed – blessed – loved – JOY… These are the words I would use to describe the emotions I experienced throughout the day of as we celebrated the soon arrival of our little lady. I had, close to, every woman in my life whom I love & adore in the one room, chatting about life, swapping stories of our journeys & discussing our little bundle of joy that the day was all about – all the while drinking…

Maternity Shoot

A Few Favourites

May 2, 2016

Just a few of my favourite things…. As girls, we can be pretty darn picky when it comes to what we like – and I am no different! There are a few everyday items that I have struggled to find a brand or version I like – but fret no more! I have found them! (until I find the next version… am I right?) Whether it’s the right dress for the right occasion, the perfect pair of shoes to match your extensively planned outfit or a…

The Journey – Part 2

April 23, 2016

First Trimester Well hello morning sickness… WHY… is… it… called… that!!! For me it lasted all day everyday, from the minute I woke up till the minute I fell asleep & I won’t even try to sugar coat it….. it was awful. (don’t get me wrong – I know it could have been far worse) We found out we were pregnant with our first bubby when I was 5 weeks along (see my previous blog post for the full story!)…
