Australia is beautiful. I am so blessed to call this country home. The fresh air, the bright colors, the warmth, it was definitely something that we weren’t used to back home in Melbourne, in our dark, black cold bubble. We were too early for check-in to the hotel so we decided to explore the town and get some lunch. Port Douglas isn’t that big. There is one main street that has all the shops, bars and restaurants. We scouted the main street and I decided to eat at a place where the most people were at. The Court House Hotel. Since I wasn’t pregnant anymore, I ordered the kilo bucket of prawns. Fuck it, why not. I’m on holidays and if I want to eat a kilo of prawns, I will. I was hoping that I didn’t have to pull their heads off as I cringe and gag at the process. I hate removing prawn poo. Who has the time? Ugh, but when I saw the bucket of fresh locally caught prawns, I thought surely it will be all worth it. It was😍🍤🌴☀️💫 . . . #babyloss #nicu #neonatal #neonataldeath #infantloss #neonatalloss #babydeath #mummyblogger #babylossawareness #babylosssupport #queensland #angelbaby #stillamum #bereavedmother #stillamummy #infantlossawareness #rememberingmason #portdouglas #nicuawareness #lifeafterloss #angelmama #baby #babylossblogger #miscarriage #stillborn #pregnancy #stillbirth #pregnant #babylossblog #childloss
Does anyone else have a slight obsession with twinning their kids? (I’ve been known to give myself a matching outfit too...) they just look so cute all coordinated don’t they!

B I G N O N N A This is my nonna, the kids great grandmother or as Cristian has affectionately named her, Big Nonna! So lucky she is still here to spend some quality time with them. My Nonno, unfortunately, passed away just before I had Cristian. I, still to this day, am so saddened by the fact that he wasn’t here to meet his first great grandchild. However, I truly believe he is our guardian angel...always looking over Cristian and Sofia, keeping them safe. . . . . . . #bignonna #greatgrandmother #family #4generations #mummyblogger #mumlife #momlife #mummyblogger #mumsofimstagram #motherhood #mumbogger #momblogger #bloggersau #blogger #mother #children #mama #mumtags #momtags #littlelifeco #sleepconsultant #babysleep #lackofsleep #childsleep #mumsleep
Morning y’all 💖! When your smoothie (recipe 👇🏽) matches your sweater 😂! How cold is it today 😨?! So glad I’ve got my super snuggly @brakeburnsince11 gear to keep me cosy warm. If you want some of your own - or for a pretty awesome Christmas present, there’s still time to bag yourself a storewide 20% discount 🙌🏽, which is available until midnight on 3 January 2018. Just enter FITAB20 at the checkout - you can find the website on their page - so go take a look 👀. Now, back to that smoothie 💚 which starred in my stories last week 😂. Lots of you have been asking about my nuclear concoction 🤣. This is more power smoothie than your typical green smoothie and I use it to give me the energy ⚡️ I need whilst training. It’s super simple to make...and tastes a lot better than it looks 🤢! Just chuck some oats, protein powder, chia seeds or peanut butter, almond milk and spirulina powder into a blender, and that’s it! Have you got a favourite smoothie recipe?? Have an awesome day...and keep warm! 😊❤️😘 ------------------------------------ #feelFAB #momstyle #mumlife #mumstyle #diastasisrecti #instamum #lululemon #fitmama #fitmomsofig #momsofinstagram #mommyblogger #tiu #tiucheckin #bbg #bbgcommunity #bbgmoms #bbgmums #weightloss #fatloss #motherhood #mommytime #mommytummy #momproblems #mumpreneur #fitfam #mummyblogger #girlswholift #mumproblems #strongnotskinny #mummytummy
To be honest I didn’t really want to go away. What was the point? A change of scenery wasn’t going to do anything. Going away on a mini break wasn’t going to make me happy, forget about what’s happened or bring Mason back. If anything it will reinforce that cruel reality I am faced with. That we are only going away because of what’s happened to us. I wouldn’t be planning a mini get away if Mason was in my arms. I would be at home, not leaving the house, smothering him with love, kisses, hugs and pinches.Saunders needed a break and he was keen to go away for a bit so I agreed. If he needed and wanted this I would support him and come with. I found an awesome deal online to head to Port Douglas for 6 days. We had never been there before, heard really great things, it was hot, pretty and it was still in Australia, only a short flight away. Maybe it will be good? Maybe we will enjoy ourselves? Joy, I find that hard to believe. Regardless, bags packed, we headed up to far north Queensland.We left Melbourne and took a flight to Cairns which was an hours drive from Port Douglas. Hot. Stinking hot. Cairns was hit you in the face hot. We definitely weren’t used to that coming from cold Melbourne. Saunders organized a hire car. I waited for him at the Hertz counter. He was taking a really long time. I didn’t think we had to do much except for sign some forms and grab the car keys since we had done most of the work online. After about 45 minutes Saunders returns with a grin on his face. Instead of hiring a small shitty little zippy car, he upgraded to a sports hatch Mercedes. Of course he did. Boys and their toys….ugh.The drive from Cairns airport to Port Douglas was BEAUTIFUL. Driving down along the coast was spectacular. The warmth from the sun hitting our faces, the emerald-green water glistening. So much green, the palm trees, the long grass, the endless rows of sugar canes. It was so beautiful🌴☀️
I've had such a blessed day. Thankyou everyone for the congrats and well wishes and flowers (thanks hubby) . Life is so full of seasons and ups and downs, and Ben and I have had our fair share of storms in our marriage, our life and marriage is no way perfection by any means, but the genuine love and appreciation we have for eachother trumps anything. At the end of the day, agree to disagree, argue over petty things, whatever it is, I feel so blessed to raise a family with my man with God leading the way and living a blessed life. The way our daughter will grow up around a Godly marriage is such an important thing, especially these days. ✨
To all the amazing people I met this year.. from incredibly strong women and single mothers, to all those I have met on my most recent travels. You’ve all brought something richer to my life.. so thank you 🙏🏻
Bath time 💦 bath time is always such a funny time of the day for us. These two munchkins go in together but my son splashes the most and really annoys his sister so much 😂 but it’s all lovely memories that I get to keep. It reminds me a lot of when my little brother would bath with my sister and splash so much the whole bathroom floor would be soaked. What are your bath time memories? . . . #stayathomemum #stayathomemom #youngmum #mummybloggeruk #mummyblogger #brotherandsister #siblinglove #bathroom #bathtime #bathtimefun #siblings #brotherandsister #playtime #waterplay #splash #mum #motherhoodthroughinstagram #healthiermoms #motherslove #mum #mummy #mom #motherhood #stayathomemomlife #mumlife
S L E E P O V E R When having 3 of your nieces & your nephew sleepover means you have enough kids to play pass the parcel 🙊😂 I bravely suggested that they all have a sleepover after our family dinner last night, & I’m so glad I did as it went so well 😍 My nieces helped me make pancakes for breakfast, they all played so well together - building cubbies, drawing & playing outside, & I finally got to use the pass the parcel that I forgot to use at the kids birthday party in August 🤦🏻‍♀️ Our 3 had a blast with their cousins & it was extra special to see the twins playing & having a ball 💛 They’re all so lucky to have each other & we’re so lucky to have so many nieces & nephews 😍 I will sleep well tonight (🤞🏼) after a well-deserved (I think 😋) night out with my sisters 💕 . #7kidsunder10 #idontknowwhatiwasthinking #butimgladiwasthinkingit #greatsuccess #cousins
A little customer love ❤️ I love it when you guys use my onesies in your pregnancy announcements! Congrats @tristamaree on baby Little!! Can’t wait to see the bub in his/her onesie in May!
➕ADVENT CALENDARS➕ We’ve been doing reverse advent calendars at work this year and I have to say watching Samuel eat all his chocolate by day 2, and then them all squabble over their ‘shared’ calendar (meant to help them understand how much they get) then I’m kinda thinking next year we’ll do the reverse calendar at home too instead. They can do one between them and then they can decide who it can be given too. What are your feelings on advent...
The WORST moment ever...😤
Ok Mammas…the holidays are just round the corner. That is going to be my mantra for the next few days to help me get through things. We will soon be relaxing and enjoying the festivities with our near and dear ones. Bring on the holidays! #kensingtonmums #goodmorning
Safe to say Harper loved her birthday presents! This little moment when she climbed up into her chair and sat dolly down on her lap to read her a book was so adorable ... I just had to capture it on camera 😍 #mysweetgirl #ourharperrose
Yep, every single time. #mumsofcoffs #kmart
Planning a party? ✨ Here are 3 party planning tips! 1. Get pompoms!! Such a cute way to decorate for a party! I am a new found paper Pom Pom advocate. 🤣 2. Pick a colour theme! My theme was pink, white and gold! This was to match the cake (and because I'm having a little girl) but also because these colours go lovely together!! Then stick to the colour theme! 3. Do it your way, if you have a vision in your head, go with it! If you don't have a vision you can get some inspiration online! Pinterest is great for inspo! Xx😊💗✨

Ladies, let's have a chat. Time to be real AF. Every time I've logged into social media over the last few days I've seen at least two posts relating to body confidence. I know that swimming season is upon us and loving your body isn't easy but if I can help someone be more ok with themselves after reading this post then I'm happy ✌ Having children changes your body. You get curves in places that weren't there before and lines to show what your body has been through. My body has been through all of these changes too. I've gone up two dress sizes, my boobs are an actual representation of deflated boobs and my hips are mini mountains. But I'm OK with that. I feel more authentic than ever before. What helps me feel confident in my skin is knowing that there is not another single person in this world who's body is remotely close to mine. So no one has the right to make me feel anything less than fabulous about it. Not to mention the fact its grown two incredible little humans in it. So don't be too hard on yourself. Wear those togs with pride. Don't worry about what other people think of your body and as some one once told me "what other people think of you is none of your business" and I'm happy that way. P.S its totally the year of the Dad Bod so let's embrace the Mum Bod too!! #morethanmakeupx #selflove #bodyconfidence #curvy

Review of Mum and Baby Aerial at @flyingfantastic now on the site. Given that the only aerial work I’d done prior to this class involved tuning the TV, I have to say I found this pretty challenging.

Water Play 💦I am usually really scared to do any kind of messy play in the house because of mess but of late I have just thought oh well if they make a mess just clean it up! So the kids has water play and they loved it, water play which extended to bath time as they were soaked afterward lol What type of messy play do you love doing with your kids? . . . #messyplay #stayathomemum #stayathomemom #youngmum #mummybloggeruk #mummyblogger #toddler #busytoddler #toddler #brotherandsister #playtime #healthiermoms #mum #mummy #love #family #motherslove #qualitytime #waterplay #motherhoodthroughinstagram #motheroftwo #siblinglove
REVIEW 🔸 when you receive a review like this how can you not share it!! Seriously you NEED to try some amber . . About a week ago I lost Blake’s necklace. I knew it was somewhere in or under the couch, but that’s not a place I wish to venture. Anyway, she’s been yuck for the week! Seemingly teething and just so grumpy. It had gotten to the point that I seriously considered calling you today to see what you had available for emergency pick up! Ha! So while she was asleep I pulled apart the couch and found it! She’s had it back on for only about four hours and she’s already a different kid! Thank you so much! xo

Feeling emotional today 😥💙Sorry for being quiet on here the past couple of days, its been a very odd few days! 😳 Oaklee and I are absolutely fine but we had a phone call to say that there has been a cancellation and Oaklee can have his Op tomorrow morning at 7.45am 😥👨🏼‍⚕️👩🏼‍⚕️ for those who don’t know, it’s nothing serious, he has a hernia in his pelvis so they just need to put it right! 🤦🏼‍♀️ I noticed a lump by his bits around 6weeks old & doc referred us to the hospital, where he confirmed he needed the op 😥 can’t help but feel tearful because I made him? So why didn’t I make him right? I know how silly that sounds but he is perfect in every way apart from this sodding hernia!😞 having a sulky Susan morning with a few tears but need to slap myself & be strong for my boy 💙🐻 #myboy #newmummy #postpartum #postpartumfitness #firstbaby #babyboy #2monthpostpartum #mummyblogger #10weekspostpartum #newborn #weightloss #weightwatchers #weightlossjourney #weightwatchergirls #WW #WWsmartpoints #motivation #dedication #determination #fitness #gym #running #love #cleaneating #motivation #fitspo #fatloss #fitbit #foodblogger #motherhood

If nobody has told you this today, I'm telling you; You're beautiful, not like her, but you're beautiful like you. You're smart, you're special and you have a purpose. Please don't allow anyone to tell you anything otherwise. You are one of God's masterpieces. 🌸 #theresilientmum
M y little old man. Archie looks so much like Adam’s grandfather, Loui here. I never got to meet him, but everyone says it and he looks like the photos too. A beautiful man, I’ve heard.

This! It is so immensely relevant to child raising. Some days it seems like none of the ‘parenting’ is getting through. Tantrums and defiance are on loop. And then one day something clicks and all those little consistent seeds that were planted have taken root and are making a difference. Keep on keeping on, mama! 😘

Writing to Santa. Probably asking for an endless supply of @kiddyliciousuk cheesy straws (if you know you know) and more stacking cups. The girl is obsessed with stacking and putting things in cups. The cheapest toys always seem to be the absolute favourites! Anyone else find this? 🎄🎅🏻 #dearsanta #christmastime
