The Sunday Edit: FOMO

The past week I have really noticed my FOMO (fear of missing out for anyone as clueless as I usually am) has peaked. My friends, some with children, most without, out and about in town, in Ibiza, dancing on tables or prancing around at festivals without a care in the world. When you’re at home on Saturday night yet again its so easy to feel you’re missing out. Don’t get me wrong I am happy with my choices, knowing my baby is tucked up sleeping soundly as I tuck into another boxset with my Netflix husband is one of the best feelings in the world. Especially when accompanied with a giant pizza and a plenty of good wine. Sometimes I just need to remind myself of just how lucky I am, and that I chose to be right here right now. And when I choose not to be those tables are just a babysitters call away from being danced on. But it’s not always simple, being able to enjoy the moment. Whether that moment is prancing around at a festival, skinny dipping in Ibiza, or in my pjs sat on the sofa finishing off the last of the Malteasers treat size bag (whoops). So this weeks Sunday inspo post is about the here and now. Living for the moment, whatever that moment is. And making the most of it. You don’t get it back. You can’t relive it. So make it worth living.

The Sunday Edit: ‘Just Do It’

Growing up part of the ‘Just Do It’ generation hasn’t been a bad thing, its driven us to get what we want, to work, to have fun, to love, to party, to go for it. But rarely to just do nothing.

Anyone that follows me on Instagram may have seen I recently posted some daily affirmation cards I have received from the The Yes Mum and today’s card read ‘You don’t have to do it all’. Rather timely as I fell through the door having stayed away with friends this weekend. A three hour drive with a two year demanding this that and everything. Bags needing unpacking, house a mess from rushing off early Saturday morning, washing stacked up, a strange smell lingering from last weeks mouldy blooms, a blog post to write, new curtains to hang (black-out and praying they work for Vivienne and those 5am wake-ups)… I just wanted to leave the ‘adulting’ behind and crash on the sofa.

The Sunday Edit: Style Inspo

After missing last week’s Sunday inspo edit (sorry) I wanted to make this weeks a double dosage of gorgeous style inspo. So having trawled Pinterest and stalked the most stylish ladies on Instagram here goes… I hope it helps inspire you for the week ahead.

Make the most of what you have. Enjoy what you have. Cherish what you have. And work hard for what you’re soon to have.

Be the best version of you, be happy, healthy, have fun (and shake ya bum)…

The Sunday Edit: Your Decision

Another weekend gone in a flash… a slightly blurred flash after yesterdays girly lunch continued into the evening and involved far too much tequila and at least one too many espresso martinis. So with a dull head I write my Sunday post and I am looking forward to a fresh week ahead.

I wanted to touch on ‘approval’ and the way it affects the way we live our lives. The way fear of being criticised or judged by friends, family and even strangers holds us back.

The Sunday Edit: Taking A Risk

When was the last time you did something new? Something you have never done before and scared you? If you’re a new mum probably every day but for most of us, not very often at all. It’s so easy to fall into a routine… the same thing day after day, week after week. The same food, clothes, hair style, outings, activities, music, TV shows. There’s certainly nothing wrong with routine, it’s what you know and like, and it’s very comforting, but this week I am challenging myself to do something new everyday. Some simple changes, but atleast one thing that makes me nervous… because the feeling you get when you realise you can do it is even better than the feeling of a good routine. The adrenaline rush of taking a risk… big or small. Whether its walking into that new playgroup not knowing anyone, finally saying hi to that other mum whose shoes you always admire, signing up for that charity run, trying a spin class (it was fab last week, so glad I went), giving that presentation at work, or just experimenting with a bright red lip!
