Postpartum is an interesting time. I’ve definitely has a different experience this time to what I did with my first. In some ways it’s been better and in many ways not so much. If pregnancy is like running a marathon then postpartum is like climbing a mountain, a physical and emotional mountain. Some days are blissful and you feel so protected in the newborn love bubble and other days you struggle to identify with the person you once were as the you now is so different to that of yesteryear. This week is perinatal anxiety and depression week so If you’re a new mum struggling go to www.panda.org for amazing support and resources. We all experience the motherhood journey differently but it’s important to know that different does not mean bad it’s just unique to you and your baby. I’d love to hear from any new mums about their experience in these early days ❤️ #postpartumdepression #postnataldepression #postpartum #perinatalmentalhealth

Today I spent the morning with my gorgeous bestie @champagnesilvousplait_ for a lovely high tea as we supported a cause very close to my heart. A fundraiser for @lltfoz @walkforprems my little Leo was born at just 34 weeks young! He needed a lot of help at the start of his life and its fundraisers like these that help our hospitals make sure they have the life saving equipment that our premature babies desperately need. You can make a donation @walkforprems every dollar counts to making a real difference for these little babies. ❤️

What a day yesterday was! I finally got my baby shower! It was just beautiful spending an afternoon with my closest friends. It was simple and so so perfect and just what I had imagined. I couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate the impending arrival of our little girl!! Thank you so much @bacchusbrisbane for accommodating our very large group and for putting on a lovely high tea for us! And of course a massive thank you to @champagnesilvousplait_ for helping put everything together and for taking all these amazing photos! You really are the perfect insta wifey x

They grow so fast... before you know it they are walking, talking and negotiating! My little Leo is so loving and kind and gives me a thousand kisses a day. He touches my growing bump and gives it a kiss and says “hi baby!” I love watching his personality grow!he is so smart and genuinely hilarious. but it’s bittersweet I will miss this stage so much when it passes. If I could hit the pause button I would and just leave him little and sweet. He will be the best big brother in a few months but geez mother’s guilt is so real I already feel bad about not having my time only for him. Ahhhh hormones 😂

Feeling just a little bit envious of @champagnesilvousplait_ and her gorgeous new hair! I’ve been dying to get my hair done, and been feeling super flat lately #thankspregnancy So next week Leo is gonna have a day with Nonna so I can have some me time and I’m gonna get my hair done! because I’m sick of looking like death walking. (And being the ugly friend 😂) Any suggestions of what I should do? Im great at recommending things for others but when it comes to me not so much! Until I figure it out though luckily I have a great selection of @topknotgirl_ head bands 😉

It’s a chilly one here in Brisbane today!! Queenslanders are so weak when it comes to the cold haha! I’m needing a big double shot today after a fun night out at @beyondthepalebar it’s was a very late one for this old pregnant girl! You know it’s late when they pack up every single chair around you! 😂🤦🏻‍♀️ the food, drinks and service was amazing though so we will definitely be back! Now it’s straight to the salon I go 😬 if you haven’t already make sure you check out @topknotgirl_ gorgeous range! This maroon wide knot is perfect for today to distract from my tired eyes! Happy Saturday x

Oh babymoon you were everything I needed and more! Time to rest, reflect and look forward. We still have quite the journey ahead of us but I’m ready for whatever it may bring. Although we missed our little Leo like crazy it was so nice to spend some quality time with my husband away from the all the craziness. So often we are just two people passing going through the motions of parenting and working that we forget we were a couple long before we were parents so it was nice to just be us for a little while. I got some much needed sleep, was pampered from head to toe #amazing ate wayyyyy to much food and drank lots of coffee...decaf but it was still delicious. Now it’s back to reality and to start getting organized for when this like babe decides to join us. Hopefully not too early like their brother ❤️

The husband and I are off on a bit of a baby moon today. 4 days of childfree relaxation 🙌🏻 I’m not sure we are prepared for all the silence 😂 I plan on sleeping a lot , drinking my coffee hot and spending some much needed time at the @thespaatsalt if you ever find yourself in Kingscliff, New South Wales you must check out @thespaatsalt it’s a heavenly experience that I’m very much looking forward too! Bumping along now... 22 weeks and still sick unfortunately 🙄 I know it will all be worth it in the end but why does the end have to take soooo long 🤔 I hope you all have an amazing Friday and have something wonderful planned for the weekend x

When I started hairdressing many moons ago I was so lucky to stumble across this girl gang... all of us are hairdressers though some don’t hairdresser anymore. We don’t catch up as often as we would like but when we do there are many many laughs. Our lives have changed a lot over the years but I’m so glad we still find time to stay connected. How lucky am I to have not just a job I love but one that has given me some amazing friendships. ❤️

What I wish I was having for dinner - My wonderful cousins held a surprise 50th for their Mum on Saturday night and this was the spectacular grazing table they put together for her! I hope one day my children can platter like this... I think I’ll feel like I’ve done my job right if they can 😂
