AUTUMN DAYS WITH RIO

September 17, 2018

I’m not saying I’m happy that summer has come to an end, however there’s big part of me that is super excited about it being autumn; a new season, that exciting feeling of newness all around, and most importantly, more cozy times with my favourite little chap. Summer was so hot for the both of us (not so fun when you’re stuck in a steaming city with no breeze), so I think it’s fair to say that the slightly cooler autumn season is going to be just perfect. Be it snuggled up at home, or crisp strolls around our neighbourhood…

INTERIOR LIVING

NEW WALL ART

Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve always had a thing for interiors. I used to re-arrange and re-style my bedroom near enough every week for years and years; I just loved playing around with objects, layouts and spaces (and still do to this day). My main thing was that I would so easily get bored with a certain look, so I would keep changing things around. Slightly annoying for my parents I guess, but at least it kept me entertained for hours! And although I’m much more confident and decisive when it comes to interiors now; that need for constant change and newness within my home is still there… Continue Reading

Time is limited for us all, but I personally didn’t quite understand quite how precious time was, after I become a mama… This is definitely the case when it comes to any kind of self-care or pampering (the latter of which is massive rarity nowadays). Small things like having time to shower in peace, doing your make-up without the little one raiding and pulling everything out of the drawer (I have definitely been known to leave the house with only eyeliner on one eye), having a face or hair mask. Of course, there is more time during the weekend when Daddy day care kicks in, but during the week things are a lot trickier, so it’s even more important than ever finding those must-have beauty products which really work…. Here are my 6 absolute beauty must-haves.  Continue Reading

LIVING MOTHERHOOD

A TYPICAL DAY IN MY LIFE (NOW THAT I’M A MUM)

August 14, 2018

I think this might be my most requested post (ever), so it’s about time I shared it with you guys! Albeit, a day in my life right now, is quite radically different from a few years ago… A lot changes when you get a baby. I mean, EVERYTHING changes. Where even the smallest, simplest and dullest task, like going to the post office, needs to be planned and prepared for. Sound crazy? Fellow mum’s: if you know, you know! Anyways, I have tried my best to stick to structure and some kind of routine in my days, a long with some work here and there (and running errands and popping to the gym, when time allows it). But as you can see, on a day-today basis, it all pretty much revolves around Rio’s schedule (which I obviously wouldn’t change for the world), and although no day is ever the same, from Monday to Friday, it pretty much looks like the below. So here goes – a typical day in my new life as a mama!
