New Mummy Body | My First Postpartum Fashion Haul & Try – On

New Mummy Body | My First Postpartum Fashion Haul & Try – On

Since giving birth, I’ve lost count of the number of messages that I’ve received, or people who have commented on my so-called postpartum ‘snap back’.

I’ve grown to dislike this term, because for so many women, the body that they are left with after birth, is one that takes a tremendous amount of effort to embrace and fall in love with. Therefore, the term ‘snap back’ can too often feel like an unachieveable goal or benchmark.

To top that off, the body that many show when embracing this term (especially on social media), is one that is fully clothed, and does not show the rawness that often hides beneath; such as the discoloration, stretched skin, stretch marks, c-section scars etc.

In my case, the birth of our baby girl left me with all of the above (except the c-section scar – watch my birth video here), and whilst the woman who I see in the mirror has changed physically, she is a woman I am more proud of and believe deserves to be celebrated.

So rather than have daily meltdowns over the fact that my stomach is a million shades darker than my entire body, and wrinkled beyond my years, I’ve chosen to drench myself in confidence, and make the sexiest glass of lemonade out of some sour ass lemons!

‘Self-confidence is the best outfit, rock it and own it’

In celebration of my new mummy body and what it has taught me about loving and embracing change, I recently treated myself to my first postpartum clothing haul.

Here are the new additions to my wardrobe, let me know what you think!

Hiding my natural hair – My battle with hair loss/excessive shedding

Hiding my natural hair – My battle with hair loss/excessive shedding

No doubt one of the most difficult things I’ve had to share during my blogging journey, but it had to be done.

I recently experienced my first major setback since starting my healthy hair journey seven years ago. I promised myself that once I had figured out what had caused me to lose handfuls of hair during wash day, I would share a video on my channel to help those who may be going through something similar.

Below are three videos sharing… View Post

Five tried & tested time management tips for maximised productivity

Five tried & tested time management tips for maximised productivity

In my last post, I gave you the scoop on one of my most effective time management tools. I was pleasantly surprised by how many people downloaded the free template, and think it’s fair to say that time management is something many of us are struggling with!

Today I want to take things a step further, and share on four additional tools and techniques, that have helped me to master my time, and boss up on my productivity game.

Let’s get straight to it.

My time management schedule & how I get the most out of each day [+ Free Template]

By now I’m sure you know how important goal setting is to me. At the end of every year I take time out to write my goals, and most important of all, I create a practical action plan that will help me to achieve them.

For Example
Goal – Get Prince2 Certification
Action plan – Save £500 in January + February, and then enroll on 5 day Prince2 course in March

Whilst setting my goals and having an action plan definitely has its benefits, I often find that these tasks alone are not enough when it comes to achieving longer term goals, or goals that have proved difficult to achieve in the past.

Let me explain.
