Maternity active wear I love

It’s no secret that I’m pregnant, 22 weeks to be exact (at time of writing this post), and something I have struggled to find both with this pregnancy and my first, is good, cost effective maternity wear for both active and leisure purposes. So you can imagine my excitement when I found Fit Mama on […]

Drinking water, eating right and poohing

Some of the other struggles I’m currently having with our threenager is drinking enough water, eating a balanced diet and poohing.

Today marks the end of day 2 of my weighless journey. I decided, after chatting to a friend, that Weighless sounded like a good option to help me lose some of this weight. In my last post about my ah-ha moment, I spoke about (finally) understanding that, in order for things to change I had […]

The pegasus homeopathic series. Part 1

When Ian from Pegasus homeopathic said he’d like to collaborate and offered me a complimentary blue box I jumped at the opportunity to work with his product. I first learnt about the Pegasus homeopathic pillules when Tristan was about 6 months old. I was at a weekly moms group talk and Ian visited us and detailed […]


We spend our early adult years doing everything we can to avoid getting pregnant, then we get married and suddenly the thing you’ve been so desperate to avoid is now the thing you want more than anything. And you realize that falling pregnant isn’t (for some) as easy as you’d initially thought! I’ve written about […]


Vegetarianism by definition is the practice of abstaining from the consumption of meat (red meat, poultry, seafood and the flesh of any other animal), and may also include abstention from by-products of animal slaughter. Am I currently a vegetarian? No! But it is something that has been rolling around my head for some time now. […]
