Who would have thought breast feeding would be so painful! My poor nips feel like they've been cut I've been using the gel breast pads that everyone recommended and also this Weleda nipple cream which is working like a dream.

Does anyone else have some recommendations for sore boobs/nipples? Lx

Since I’ve had my baby, I can now laugh about some of the comments that people make to pregnant woman. Getting asked if you’re pregnant with twins is bad enough, but when you’re hormonal and not sleeping, the crazy does come out hearing such comments.

A few people have been asking what skin care I'm using for my baby. I am using the DIMPLES by Jane Anne skin care range which uses all natural and organic ingredients and is made in NZ. The nappy cream and baby lotion have been amazing so far and are super gentle on the skin.

I'm trying to avoid using any products that can cause rashes and irritation on the babies skin as some skincare...

The weekend calls for pancakes ????????

These are light, fluffy, easy to make and no doubt you will have all of the ingredients in your cupboard. I made these egg and dairy free but did not have GF flour in my cupboard and used white flour. Easy to sub out for alternative ingredients depending on your dietary requirements.
Here is the recipe (makes 8)

1 cup flour
1 tbsp coconut sugar...

Okay, I've made this call before, but seriously, these Ultra Boost by Adidas are hands down the comfiest pair of shoes I have ever worn. Super limited edition release of men's and women's through Stirling Sports, they may have a few pairs left. Jx
Look at that beautiful smile! In light of everything horrible that is happening around the world it has made me step back and really appreciate what I have. A roof over my head, clean water, clothes, access to food, medical care and living in a country that provides opportunities for everyone. In fact, it is likely that anyone reading this is in the same position. So this Christmas I’m done...

Sometimes we spend far too long worrying or being anxious about situations, things or people, that really don't matter. Often in times of stress or busyness, it's easy to overthink. You're only human! ✨ So have a little cry or moan, and then throw whatever is making you sad/angry back out into the universe and focus on what really matters (maybe have a wine at the same time). This 5 by 5 rule...

You just have to be careful you don't take too much or you will still be sleepy when...
