Me pretending like this didn’t hurt the hammies 😬 These @acta.wear high waisted shorts were actually so good to train in!!! It’s getting rather warm in the studio now so these were a nice alternative to leggings and bonus covering of the burny places on my back 💁🏼‍♀️👏🏻💓 Use my code: JULIA15 to get 15% off! #actawearambassador #actawear #splits #aerialsilks #nzfitness #nzfitmum #nzmum

The power of play. Today she spent over 30 minutes putting a ball into and out of a basket. Problem solving, logic and spatial awareness as well as coordination, gross and fine motor skills and balance all had a work out. But most of all, she had so much fun doing it. Otb today is the glorious #kiwikitsch, a collab between @fudgeypantsnz and @fionaclarkeart 💕. #play #thepowerofplay #letthembelittle #mcn #mcnz #modernclothnappies #clothnappy #clothnappynz #clothnappylove #choosetoreuse #makeclothmainstream #makelaundrynotlandfill #clothnappies #fudgeypants #fudgeyfans #zerowasteliving #reusablenappies #clothdiaper #clothdiaperlove #clothdiapering #mumlife #aucklandmum #nzmum #nzbaby #aucklandbaby

☝🏻How I used to feel every time Zoey (my toddler) got sick and work had to come to a standstill for the day — I anticipated total chaos. But, the reality is much less dramatic. The world goes on. Life doesn’t end. People understand. Don’t get me wrong, I still live in fear of sick days like any working parent — but I’m learning to take them in my stride and hold my head high. I’m a working parent — and this is my life sometimes. I used to worry that it would make me seem unprofessional, or like I’m not committed to my work, but that’s not my truth so now I try to let that worry go. Over 18 months or so of blending work and motherhood, I’ve also found a few techniques that keep clients happy. 1️⃣ Stretchy deadlines. I calculate the time I think I could deliver something — then I double it. Better to surprise a client early than to constantly push out the deadline. 2️⃣ Communication and honesty. I make it clear to clients that I’m a mum, so from time to time this happens — especially when booking meetings. If they’re not OK with that possibility, I totally understand — and can refer them to other writers who work more traditional hours. 3️⃣ Keeping it simple. I used to overexplain and offer all the gory details of Zoey’s latest bug (oops!) Now, I only tell clients what they need to know: that something has come up and I need to reschedule/that I’m away from my computer and will come back to them on X date, etc. I also turn on my out of office. I’m sure there are other genius ways of getting through kiddo sick days — do you have any wisdom? As Zoey will be off daycare again tomorrow, I’d love your tips!

Ellie, I was reminded the other day that I am currently your bestest friend. And I thought to myself how I should try to remember this on those really, really hard days. . . I am the one who you feel most comfortable with and that is why you choose me to unload all your troubles and frustrations to. I feel privileged (and sometimes very overwhelmed, let's be honest) that you feel safe enough to be at your most vulnerable state with me. . . And as the tides rise and fall and the dynamic of our relationship changes over the years, I hope that you can always come to me no matter how big or small your problems are. You can always count on me. . . I love you so, so much Elle Belle. What an honour it is to be your person ♡

💁 Throw back to last weekend when this Lil Mumma felt fancy AF 🌟 It's been a hard minute since I last got all dressed up & heels on 👠 . . Before baby I wore heels everywhere!! (Yep short girl problems 😜) These days the heels I use to wear on the daily aren't the greatest for chasing a very active walking talking 10month old . . ...but then again, I use to be able to run up Queen St & dance all night in snake skin stilettos (oh sweet baby Jesus I miss those heels!) so really I guess anything's possible 🤷‍♀️😂 Anywho, im'ma pat myself on the back for still being able to scrub up alright 👏💯 . . #tbt #birthdaycelebration #goodfeels #vibing #makeuponpoint #milf #getitgirl #mumsofinstagram #selflove #aucklandnz #nzmums #nzmum #kiwikids #mumsofauckland #aucklandmum #nzmummybloggersclub #kiwimummyblogger #nzmummyblogger #kiwimumlife #kiwimum #darlingproject #kiwimumfollow #solomumbychoice #nzmbc #mumswithcameras #mentalhealthmatters #solomums #parenthood #nzlife #empoweringmumsmovement
