Do you wash new clothes before wearing? I always wash new clothes and linen before use as there can be loose dye or chemicals from the manufacturing process that can cause horrible skin irritation. I don’t even want to think about what can be transferred by people trying things on in store too! Don’t forget about secondhand either. You may react to someone else’s laundry detergent and clothes can smell musty from storage.
He is a stage 5 clinger at the moment and screams bloody murder when he doesn’t get his way but my goodness he is cute 😍

BEING 'SELFISH' I've been trying hard these last few weeks to prioritise what I need before what others need, and what others need to be done Someone said to me recently "it's okay to be selfish during this stage of pregnancy" But am I being selfish? Spending time looking after myself, making sure I'm rested, calm and as comfortable as possible.. I don't see that as being selfish In fact, quite the opposite actually! There's a lot of research about how our stress levels during pregnancy affect the little humans growing in us, and how the environment we create during pregnancy can have lasting effects on that little human well into their lifetime So at the moment, when I'm focusing on taking care of myself.. in reality I'm actually taking care of him, and right now nothing matters more to me So don't feel bad for prioritising yourself, say no if you need to, binge watch a show to force yourself to rest, have a middle of the day nap, go get a massage, read a book.. because whatever makes you feel good at the moment is 100% helping your little one too ❤❤❤❤❤
Spring is my bloody fave🌸🌸 This wisteria or whatever it’s called is giving me life right now. And hay fever but you gotta take the good with the bad ✌️
Today 8 years ago we were in beautiful Bali celebrating us 🥰 8 years married to my best friend ❤️ This past 12 months has been the absolute best, finally bringing our beautiful boy into the world and bonding like never before. Happy anniversary Lukey! I love you always xx

Maternity leave 🤰🏼 Expectation VS reality 👉🏼 I’m so thankful that becoming a mum was not a rough journey. I’m thankful that although unexpected and unplanned, my first baby was conceived with ease. That all my babies have been conceived with ease. That all my babies are born happy, healthy and with hardly any issues. There are so many women who aren’t as lucky and it makes me feel terrible for complaining about the sickness and pain of this pregnancy... but, man 2.5 weeks can not go fast enough for me! I cannot wait to have my body back. To not throw up each day. To bend without all the moaning. To eat without the heartburn. To not have to make sure I have plenty of spew bags on hand should I leave the house. To not have to make another hospital trip unless there’s a dire need. Count down is on!!
WHAT ARE ESSENTIAL OILS? . Essential oils are naturally occurring volatile aromatic compounds found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers & other parts of plants. Volatile aromatic compounds are organic molecules that tend to change quickly from their solid or liquid state to a gas at room temperature. Essential oils give plants their distinctive smells, protect the plants & play a role in pollination. . When you first open a bottle of pure essential oil the aroma is potent & the properties of the volatile aromatic compounds move quickly through the air & directly interact with the olfactory sensors in the nose making them ideal for aromatherapy (& other applications ) to help maintain a healthy body & mind. . To date, over 3000 varieties of volatile aromatic compounds have been identified, the nature of an essential oil varies from plant to plant, within botanical families, from species to species & can also vary depending on the time of day, season, geographic location, year grown, weather, method & duration of distillation. The delicate ratio of aromatic constituents present in every essential oil determine both the unique aroma & its benefits. . Essential oils can be used as single oils or as a complex blend, for a wide range of physical & emotional applications, depending on user experience & desired benefit. DM me if you’re interested in getting essential oils into your home. .

// SAVOURING ALL THE MOMENTS // ⠀ ⠀ One of the perks of running my own biz at home, means I don’t have to rush off in the morning to get somewhere, and I can have quality time with my little bestie! ⠀ ⠀ Whilst we do have our own routine (and my babe goes to childcare 3 days a week so I can get all my work done ), we get to take our mornings slooow and have breakfast together (which includes lots of trucks as you can see partially in the photo 😜 ), plus some other fun Mummy-Son time before we start our day. ⠀ ⠀ I’m savouring these special one on one moments as in 3.5 months, it won’t just be the two of us at breakfast anymore. There will be a tiny newborn baby girl here! Hudson’s little sis! 👶🏽 ⠀ ⠀ Life sure will be different....but oh so wonderful. ⠀ ⠀ Whilst I am SO excited for her to be here and to give him a sibling, I’m soaking up these current moments more than ever as when she is here, it will be different. This precious one on one time we get won’t be the same anymore. ⠀ ⠀ We will have so many special moments all together when this little girl is here, but we will never have these particular moments again. ⠀ ⠀ I know I will still get one on one time in many ways, and Hudson will get to have so much more special one on one time with his Daddy, though it’ll be so new for us all. ⠀ ⠀ So, for now, I’ll gobble up all the many moments and be super grateful for the final few months I get where it’s just my baby bear and I! 🐻⠀ ⠀ Can any other Mumma’s relate? ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #mybaby #toddlermum #workfromhome #aussiemum #mummylifestyle #igmum #nutrimeticsaustralia #boymum #girlmum #mumsofadelaide #pregnantmum #januarybaby #directsales #networkmarketing #workfromhome
Recently I was chatting to a new mama I was working with about what it might look like to ask for support from loved ones in that first few weeks after taking baby home.⠀ ⠀ You know, that time when everyone wants to come over to meet baby. They can often come with somewhat empty offers of help like "can I do anything for you?", while they're really hoping for a cuddle with your cute bub.⠀ ⠀ And as a new mum it can be really hard to pipe up and ask for what you really need, like "actually, I could really use some help with getting through the dirty dishes that have piled up". ⠀ ⠀ I suggested this tip to the new mama I was working with and she thought it was brilliant, so I'm sharing it with you here too...⠀ ⠀ If asking a visitor outright to help with a specific chore or task seems way too daunting or out of your comfort zone, try having a running list of those chores that need doing on your fridge.⠀ ⠀ Then next time a visitor pops by and asks "Can I help you with anything?", you can say "Well, I've got a bit of a to-do list on the fridge that I haven't managed to get to yet. It'd be amazing if you could help with one of those jobs!"⠀ ⠀ What do you think of this tip? Tell me in the comments, would you feel more comfortable asking for help in this way? ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #postpartumsupport #postpartumjourney #fourthtrimester #thisispostpartum #mynameismama #ittakesavillage #firsttimemama #mumssupportingmums #hellobaby #newbornlovebubble #abouttopop #rawmotherhood #thesetinymoments #welcometotheworld #aussiemum #perthmums #perthnutritionist #familyhealthcoach #empoweringmotherhood #motherhoodunplugged #motherhoodrising

If you can’t find your reason to try then I don’t know 🤷🏼♀️ what your reason would be! I took the risk and backed myself to launch my skincare range, my own label and all the details - right down to the type of bottle it would be put into. I’ve now backed myself again, to grow into the world of switching and ditching chemicals from the house. Believing in the research, the 27 years of solid knowledge from the founder. I am extremely passionate about both areas of this, I’m honestly doing it because this little guy makes me want to help others. I want to make him proud and show him that he can do anything if he puts his mind to it. Remember your reasons and your whys, on the hard days you’ll need to reset and regroup. You’ve got this mumma each and every day! Believe and never stop.

And just like that - September is over! Was able to get this weeks shop for $115 - happy with that considering I got a few specialty items that I wouldnt usually buy for the price ($3 per avo - ouch! ) I'm officially bumping up my budget from $120 a week to $130 a week now that we are a family of 4. I'll still always aim for less ; )

It seems I am at that stage where I have to bribe my two year old to get her to do what she is told. Today I had to tell her we would go and feed unicorns (horses ) carrots after the park if she wore her hat while playing after loosing her shit for 10 mins about being at the park 🙈 So what I want to know is what’s the most ridiculous bribe you have told your child to get them to do what they are told? #mumlife #motherhoodunplugged #honestmotherhood #motherhoodrising

So we decided to skip Billies afternoon nap today (one that she probably wouldn’t have had anyway 🙈 ) so we could go to the oval and burn some energy. What age did your babe start having one sleep? I don’t think she is ready yet as she can’t make it past 10am but she isn’t a fan of her afternoon one 🤷🏼♀️
The best way to start the week! A few hours in the sun at the beach this morning.. summer is definitely on its way and I am here for it☀️
Everything is perfect, right here and right now. The past is just a memory, so we have no need to dwell on any of the events that occurred. Tomorrow doesn’t exist yet, so we won’t need to worry about it until we are living it. In this very moment, be grateful for what you DO have, your ability to cuddle your child (whether it’s a pet or a human ), to kiss your spouse, to sleep in your warm bed, to feel nourished by the food in your fridge, to wear the clothes you selected and make you feel good, to shower in hot water, to immerse yourself in a good book, to have a meaningful conversation with your girlfriends.... whatever you’re doing in this very moment, this is your present. When my anxiety hits me like a train, I close my eyes and I think about all the things I have in that very moment, and give gratitude. I can only control the right now, not the past and certainly not the future. Just as I can only control my actions and not the actions of others. What are you grateful for today?
A little Colour pop for Friday 🦄💜 Years ago I would never wear much colour, believing black was the best choice for everything and oh it was more “slimming” *insert huge eye roll here! I was so conditioned and limiting my choices 🙄 oh how times have changed! Wearing an outfit or a colour that makes you feel incredible or completely yourself is pretty damn powerful. An outfit should FEEL good - in comfort and in how it makes you FEEL INSIDE too. I felt myself go back into a bit of a rut of wearing black and white all the time again. Don’t get me wrong I love an all black look or having those basics; it can be super elegant and classic but I was just being lazy and it was actually making me feel blahhhhh BUT I found this little lilac delight of a dress and I fell in love with it... it is stretchy, comfy and fun (a little like me lol ) and I may have also taken home the cornflour blue version too. It reminded me how good colour feels and what emotions colour can spark inside. Maybe you want to experiment with colour but not quite ready to part with your all black uniform? 🧥 Simply layer a coat or jacket in a bright hue on top of an all black outfit. 💄Try rocking a bright lippy or add a little colour to your makeup look. 👠Add a pair of shoes or bag in a statement colour - ones that can make you feel like you can take on the world. 🍭Even put a colour cami or top under a black blazer for a little POP! 🍂 Try tonal dressing by wearing different pieces together that fall within the same colour family. Use different textures, patterns and solid shades to make each piece work together. So today I CHALLENGE YOU to experiment this weekend, try not to wear any black clothing this week or if you do add some POPS of colour!! I’d love to see what you come up with! Tag me. 🦄🍭🌈
My baby bear 🧸 Wearing the amazing HC lashes! I have been obsessed with these magnetic lashes since I received these two weeks ago and it’s safe to say I have just been frolicking around my house wearing them. I would never go back to the toxic glue again and that’s coming from someone who has always had extensions. Magnetic lashes - Non toxic - Vegan - Reusable - Waterproof - Cost and Time effective I am wearing the Diamond lash and that’s great for everyday use, use my name BRITTANY for a cheeky discount and free shipping 🥰 #magneticlashes #collab #mumlife #stylishmum #motherhood_unfiltered
