You Should Give Mum a Day Off
There is nothing like being a mum. It is the BEST. I was one of those women who swore I wouldn't let motherhood define me; but yet, here I am, first and foremost: a mum.
Lifehacks for New Parents
I just became a mum! Well... 6 months ago, so I feel like I know a few things about being a new parent. The bags under my eyes and leaking boobs could tell you a few things too.I love being a mum, it is by far the best thing I've ever done in my life... it is also the hardest thing I've ever done. Parenting is all trial and error coupled with googling everything your baby does to make sure its normal/work out how to stop it.
Perfectly Useful Gifts For New Mums...
Having just had my first child six months ago, I have recently experienced the influx of generosity that surrounds a new addition to the world. It seems that everyone we know and everyone our parents know wanted to treat us and our baby boy. Whilst every last gift was so thoughtful and so lovely, there were some that stood out more than others. There are also some that I would have gifted my friends, had I had a baby before them...
In the past few years, my obsession with health and wellness has increased tenfold. I trained to teach yoga five years ago and started living an entirely vegan lifestyle. I began to look into the things I put on my skin and in my body, from medicine to body lotion. I wanted to be as natural as possible for both my own health and that of the planet. When I fell pregnant with my little boy, my interest in a more eco-friendly lifestyle increased (much to the dismay of my partner, who goes along with it, but would probably rather I wasn't so hellbent on saving the world one cloth nappy and vegan dinner at a time).
10 Things That Will Change as Soon as You Have Kids....
From the moment I had my son, my life changed. I know it sounds cliche, I used to hear people say it and roll my eyes. But it really, really does change everything. Whether you want it to or not, there are certain changes that are pretty much out of your control unless you are some sort of superhero/have the funds to hire an army to do everything for you; which, let's face it, in this day and age, people rarely do. That is especially true if you happen to live in central London like myself and my partner.
"The Bells": One of the Best, but Also One of the Worst Episodes...
If you haven't watched Game of Thrones season 8 episode 5 just yet, don't read this piece because I am about to ruin and spoil every last inch of it for you! You have been warned.
Best Headphones for DJing
The art of DJing is often overlooked. Before I started, I honestly thought it was as easy as pressing play on a CDJ and watching the crowd go wild... anyone could do it, right? I didn’t realise the complexity of accurately beat matching, especially in a club setting. The time and effort it takes to build a standout set, meticulously select the tracks, and then read the crowd's response to said tracks and find interesting and exciting ways of mixing the setlist to keep the audiences attention—everything that goes into performing and writing a GOOD DJ set is pretty hard work.
11 Things About Labour and Birth That No One Talks About
Two weeks ago, I gave birth to my first son Roman. He arrived at 6AM on January 8, four days early, on the date I wanted. I asked my belly and he listened. He shares his birthday with Bowie, Elvis, and Stephen Hawking, and I have never been so overwhelmed with love and emotion in my life. Everyone tells you, "You don’t know love till you have kids."
