Happy Valentines Day!

I’ve written a love letter, it was an interesting one to create. It’s also one of the most moving and personal pieces I may ever share.

I’m sending big thank you to the girls over at Mama Tribe for letting me put this out on your blog.

Hey you,

This is going to be a tough one but long overdue. Do you remember her? Did you find her? Let me ask you this… was she the same? After all the time has passed and words have rested on deaf ears was it all worth it? Can I be honest, you always talk about honesty.

You can find the full letter here.

As always happy reading.

Mothers Meeting is one of the most well known motherhood collectives in the UK. After the devastation caused by the Grenfell Tower fire, Mothers Meeting decided to hold a fundraiser. But in true MM style it was even more special; it was done in 3 days with countless contributions from women from all walks of life. After attending I was asked to share my thoughts of the day, which I was more than happy to do. A full write up of the event can be found here.

As always happy reading x

Here’s something you don’t find often. It’s me, talking about cosmetics, skincare and hair with Mallory, the talented beauty writer and mom (Shes a New Yorker!) behind What Mother Does.  She talks to women who are also mums about their beauty routines among other things. I’m so low maintenance I don’t actually know how this woman managed to get such a good interview. But, what I did share was how and why I keep the system I have for my hair and what is my go to skin care product. THE ONLY ONE I HAVE. So be sure to have a read and check out the amazing pictures. All taken by the brilliant Rachel over at September Pictures, who is also a fellow mum and she can work with her daughter in a baby carrier #GOALS. Talk about a girl gang, between the 3 of us and the 3 babies it was a really fun time. Anyway enough waffling from me you can find the full interview here.

As always happy reading x

What Mother Does

Luckily for me I straddle between two areas as a student mum. I’m not a stay at home mum but I don’t exactly work. Most people don’t really understand what being a student mum is like or how the “work/life” balance happens. How we have dealt with changes as a family and what the future plans are, were all the things The Resilient Mum (like most people) wanted to know. I also spoke about the ups and downs of being a student mama. It’s very honest and candid but I hope you enjoy.

The girls over at Make Motherhood Diverse were bold enough to share a piece of work I can only describe as the best I’ve written.

What if the elephant in the room could talk?

Elephants is a piece about tokenism and covert prejudice. The concept was created when I noticed a trend of constantly being an other or ticking a box. While it’s clearly an uncomfortable topic, what was more uncomfortable was the idea of daring to open up this conversation. My experiences are personal but not uncommon so this was a main point I wanted to make. This piece was written to speak to the privileged whether that be via race, gender, age etc. Written to have a challenging yet also refreshing effect Elephants speaks about the topics we all avoid. It was also written to highlight the idea that the statistics we read about and pity, could sometimes be unsuspectingly already sitting at our table. The new age movement of being woke, should not always be aimed at the obvious suspects because passive microaggressions can cause just as much disturbance.
