3 Tips to get you and the kids from 3-8pm without losing it

Why do the hours between 3 pm and 8 pm always feel like such a mad scramble? No matter how organised you are, how well you’ve planned ahead or how content everyone has been throughout the day, that time slot somehow often feels like a ticking time bomb ready to explode in a whirlwind of […]

My backstory & business advice

Last month I attended the AusMumpreneur Conference and Awards night in Sydney, which was a blast! It was uplifting, inspiring and a great opportunity to pause and celebrate – my business, as well as other incredible Mums in business! Although I wasn’t a winner, it was an honour to be a finalist in the AusMumpreneur […]

The Identity Shift of Becoming a Mum

One of the most common things I hear from the beautiful mothers I work with is, “I feel like I’ve lost myself”, or “I don’t know who I am anymore”. While we venture into motherhood understanding that things will change, there’s no way we can possibly comprehend how much change we’ll experience. Everyone feels it […]

15 things motherhood has taught me

I think it’s inevitable at one stage or another, we ask ourselves, “How to be a good mum?” While it seems simple, with so much information about what a “good” mum looks like, the answer is not always straightforward.

Reasons I got hooked on Sex/Life (other than Brad & Billie)

Have you watched, or are you watching, the Sex/Life Netflix series? I recently started it, was instantly hooked and promptly polished off Season 1 and 2 over successive nights once the kids had gone to bed. Netflix is a new thing in our lives (we are late to the party!), and I’m generally not a […]

Why a retreat?

As you probably know if you’re reading this, I’m a Motherhood Coach, have an online business and predominantly work remotely. So why am I, seemingly all of a sudden, making a song and dance in the past few weeks about the live retreat I’m co-hosting 2-5 May 2023? There’s a few reasons. Firstly, because it’s […]

What is Self-Care?

What is Self-Care?

What is self-care?  I frequently get asked by mums,  How do I prioritise myself?   How do I fit it in?  And how do I do it without feeling guilty?  Self-care is not unfamiliar to any of us and quite often we can think of self-care as booking a massage or booking a weekend away or […]

My word for 2023

Have you come up with your word for 2023? Is this a ritual for you too, or a foreign concept? If you don’t know what I’m talking about, your ‘word’ for the year is a theme and intention that underpins everything about how you’re going to show up for that year (think, feel, act).  For […]
