Lucy spending some quality time with Grandma Great.
#threeaboutme My heart is so full after the response to my Insta stories yesterday! It was such a spur of the moment thought but I’m so happy to have so many people get involved or to offer a kind word about how important the message is. I love seeing your DMs with your pics & empowering words about yourself and I especially love that some of you have been brave enough to post them on your story/feed 💗 Ironically though I just I realised I hadn’t done my own 😆🤦🏼‍♀️ So here it goes! This shot was taken in Brooklyn by my fiancé (on the same trip we got engaged, swooon)... 1. I love that my hair looks effortlessly tousled even though it took me ages to do and then got blown everywhere when we got off the subway (rude!) 2. I love that I didn’t even have to ask Dan to take this, he just did and although I often cringe at random photos he takes (generally because they’re unflattering, like when I’m asleep with my mouth open, thanks mate) but i love this ❤️ 3. I’m doing one of the things I love the most...Eating! A drunken cookie from @thebedfordnyc at that 🤤🤤 So if you missed my stories, here is the jist....Find a photo of yourself (just you) and list 3 reasons why you love it. Your makeup is on point, your butt looks good, it was a great memory, whatever, just something that shares three things you love about this moment and yourself. Tag @mummyrepublic and use the hashtag #threeaboutme I don’t care if you even just DM me or a girlfriend or keep it to yourself but try and take the time to do it 👊🏻 Give yourself a little pep, a little confidence boost and stop being so damn harsh when it comes to self reflection. We’re always criticising ourselves and we need a break from it! So let’s try replacing the judgment with appreciation & see how amazing that can feel instead 🌻
It’s been raining nonstop around here, so when I say these three brought all of the magic with them I’m not even kidding! ✨
Sometimes taking the road less travelled can be scary. The uncertainty and lack of control can turn some stomachs upside down. There are people who like where they are and would rather keep it that way. Then there are those who thrive on adventure, who seek the unknown, who yearn for new discoveries. Taking that giant leap can be very rewarding, especially when you know you have faith that it will work out in the end. It's 2019. Which will you choose to be? #barefootem #faithplusfitness #intentional #giantleap #faith #2019 #newyear #journey #inspiration #life #motivation #inbeautyandchaos #pursuitofhappy #onlygoodvibes #seekthesimplicity #selfgrowth #growthmindset
This picture brings a smile to my face EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. and I hope it does the same for you too ♥️
I think this red hair don’t care phase is so me. Where has this color been my whole life? . . Still thinking about going back to blonde though. So many choices 🤔. I think I will forever be a blonde at heart. . #boymom #boymom #bestofmom #momlifestyle #honestmotherhood #joyfulmamas #inbeautyandchaos #momsunite #justmomlife #momlife #mom #momma #mommy #redhair #redhairdontcare #selfie #selfiesaturday #instagood #instaselfie #love #loveyourself #hats #momfashion #redhairstyle #red #redhairlove #loveit #cute #outside #winter
Well that happened fast...I knew I would probably have to get my gallbladder out after baby came, but I wasn’t expecting a call from the doc saying, “how’s tomorrow?” But I’m so relieved. A week after giving birth my attacks started again (which I’ve had for two years now) and I’ve been so scared to eat much of anything. And the added stress of it all has taken a toll on my milk production. As if, newborn life wasn’t hard enough!? ⠀⠀ So, prayers appreciated as I go in tomorrow, and as my hubby said tonight, “hopefully start getting back to the old me.”🙏🏻 . . . . . . . . . . #momblogger #momlifestyle #ohheymamas #slowmotherhood #honestmotherhood #ohheymama #our_everyday_moments #bedeeplyrooted #motherhoodrising #unitedinmotherhood #joyfulmamas #inbeautyandchaos #letthembelittle
These two 🤦‍♀️ at it again 😆
And just like that summer holidays are well and completely over 😭 We’re back into the daily grind today with work and daycare 🤓 And YES I remembered my @keepcup today (yeah the one I purchased 6 months earlier 😉) I’m all about trying to be a little greener this year, purchased some bee wax wraps in Byron I super excited to test out has anyone used these before?? AND REMEMBER to BYO bags to the grocery store.. yep I still keep forgetting to bring them along 🤦🏼‍♀️ Tell me I’m not the only one 🤞🏼
Safe in mommy’s arms forever and always.

How stunning is this floral romper 😍 I have collected a few very special pieces for baby girl so far but I'm yet to start shopping for the actual day to day onesies etc!!! Whoops 😂 I should probably get on that soon, not much more than a few months left before she's here!
🦖 My little ROCK is a GEM🦖 —————————————————————— So the good news is my little sidekick, rockstar, force of nature is loving pre-school! I am so happy for her. She is such a sociable creature and she still speaks about how much she misses her best friend she left back in England one year ago (it breaks my heart somedays)! But now, she’ll finally be able to find new friends she can play with! . . The less good news is that I still feel pretty 🤢 and now have a cold coming too! There are some freaky double-strike virus 🦠 here in California! Apparently half the school has come down to it but so far I’m it’s only victim in the family😷 so I’m trying to stay in quarantine-ish! . . This photo was taken last week at the Roynon museum for earth sciences and palaeontology, which if you ever come to San Diego,I thoroughly recommend you visit. We had the most brilliant time with Mr Roynon who told us all about rocks and minerals and fossils. He has an absolutely amazing collection! The kids had a blast!! . . #mylittlerock #stopgrowingsofast #mybiggirl #shessobignow #wherearemybabies #missingmygirl

THE GIFT OF IMPERFECTION // Gonna get real for a second here and talk about something that is a struggle for me, and maybe some of you? Perfectionism. For as long as I can remember whenever I am doing something I always feel like it’s ‘never good enough’. Just today I was making a cake as a trial run for Canyon’s birthday. Whyyyyyy, am I right? Well, I am not #cakebycountney and not a baker at all! So the whole time I was critiquing myself on every step of the process because it was uncomfortable and a challenge. About midway through I reminded myself that this was my first time making a fancy cake, and to allow myself to not get it ‘perfect’ the first time. Man was this hard!!! I looked at the finished product and felt like it sucked, didn’t look like the beautiful picture, and felt defeated. Then a little voice in my head reminded me that this cake was enough, I was enough, and that it was ‘ok’ to have some imperfections because that was how I was going to learn and grow. More often than not, I think we beat ourselves up over things that don’t really matter in the long run — like I did today with my trail run cake 🤦‍♀️. Not to minimize it, but in reality Canyon doesn’t care if his cake looks picture perfect on his birthday cause he’s turning one ?!?!. What he will remember is being surrounded by everyone who loves him, and that love will lift him up his whole life though. Soo this is a reminder to me, and maybe some of you to give yourself some room for imperfection because it’s really what we get to experience in this life and it’s a gift of process, learning, and growth. Embrace it, love it and yourself through it. Get it GURLLLLLL! . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #photooftheday #candid #canonmarkiii #familyphotography #shotoncanon #photobugcommunity #mastinlabs #communityovercompetition #littlestoriesofmylife #thatsdarling #honestmotherhood #thehappynow #liveauthentic #yycblogger #nothingisordinary #uniteinmotherhood #magicofchildhood #workingmom #babiesofinstagram #childhoodunplugged #instainspiration #momlife #busymom #babylove #documentingmotherhood #inbeautyandchaos
SNACK RECIPE! ⠀ I vote these the perfect kid + mama snack. Gelatin fruit gummies (for lack of a better/shorter name 😂). Fruit-centered but packing a punch of protein. Soft, easy to chew for toddlers, transportable (within reason) and not terribly messy unless they get super hot and melt. 🤷🏻‍♀️⠀ ⠀ Skin, organs, and connective tissues are usually not ingredients you see in most cookbooks these days. But they were ingredients many of our ancestors used, and are still widely used in many cultures. When animal bones and tendons are simmered to make broths, gelatin, vitamins and minerals are released. This gelatin provides the collagen that our bodies need for healthy nails, skin, hair and joints. Because collagen is the main protein found in our connective tissues, we should not skimp on consuming it.⠀ ⠀ Recipe is in my original #antiinflammatory cookbook, but here’s a tweaked version for ya:⠀ ⠀ 1 cup berries/fruit (I used thawed frozen mango and blueberries this time)⠀ Dash of maple or honey if you need it⠀ 1/2 cup lemon juice⠀ 1/4 cup filtered water ⠀ 3 tablespoons @vitalproteins gelatin (not collagen peptides...that won’t gel!)⠀ ⠀ Blend everything but the gelatin together and then warm in a small sauce pan over medium heat. Add gelatin and whisk in quickly. Pour into silicone candy molds (seen in photo...got them on Amazon) or a parchment lined Pyrex or brownie pan and you can cut them into small bars once they solidify. Pop them in the fridge and wait til they gel up! 😋 ⠀ ⠀ ⠀
I’ll be posting mine (& Sahir’s) #10yearchallenge tomorrow and it’s making me so nostalgic! (& cringe a bit!) I hope that it gives all of people who are in their awkward stages hope that it really does it better 😂 Comment with a 👍🏽 emoji if you agree!
This is the coolest piece of tech for kids. @mygatorwatch is a UK company that’s bringing independence to little ones with wearable tech (mobile phone) which is purposely not a smart watch. She’s receiving her first phone call from Dad and she’s sooo thrilled. This watch has a built in GPS tracker, and allows little ones to call predetermined contacts and an SOS button should they find themselves in a tricky situation. I really love the fact that she won’t get bogged down in Apps and games when wearing it, and will simply use it as a tool. My Gator Watch is making its way to Canada and Madeleine is lucky enough to be one of the first adopters. Ok, one more thing, the founder is a Mum based in London who had a dream to give kids more independence whilst ensuring the tech functioned to support their creativity. . . . . . . . . .
The tenderness that always shows up, in the biggest and smallest of ways--that's what keeps taking my breath clean away. #theheartfulphotogs

Lately I’ve been obsessed with 100% natural skincare products. I feel like those are the only ones that REALLY work for me! It’s that time of year my skin gets really dry 😣 I’ve applied it a couple of times throughout the night and my skin already feels so much smoother 😍 so glad I found this at @wegmans 🤗 • • • • • #skincareroutine #skincaretips #africansheabutter #whatsyourskincareroutine #kuzanaturals #kuzasoftness #supportsmallyoutubers #smallyoutubersupport #smallyoutubercommunity #smallyoutuber #youtubemom #youtubingmama #youtubing #youtubelove #inbeautyandchaos #momswithcameras #ohheymama #supportsmallshops #momentsofmine #inspiremyinstagram #momlifeisthebestlife #wegmans #wegmansisthebest #newyorkvlogger #newyorkmoms #newyorkmom
Are you worthy of trust?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Have you kept your word to those you love and care for?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Because you're loving and wonderful the answer is probably yes! No question!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Now have you kept your word to yourself?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It's easy to give our best selves to anyone else, but to ourselves we can let that slip to the back end because after all, other people need you.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But what if for just tomorrow you keep your word to yourself?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What if for just one day you do the things you promise you'll do for yourself?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What would that even look. like?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Is it the norm? Or would it be a breath of fresh air?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If it's something new or an area needing improvement then my best tip would be to pick just three things to get done tomorrow.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It can be anything from eating a healthy breakfast. To making it to your workout. Finishing a project. Or putting the dishes away.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It doesn't matter what your three things are as long as they are benefiting your life and moving you forward in your day.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Mine will be go to the gym, read two pages from my daughter's curriculum, and making dinner.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #trustyourself #keepyourword #motherhoodunplugged #everygirl #growth #momprenuerlife #momprenuer #stopdropandmom #inbeautyandchaos #motherhood #momlife #nestingly #therealinstamoms #toddlers #momoflittles #momboss #girlboss #crunchymama #workingmom #entrepreneur #entrepreneurlife #daysarelongyearsareshort ##vibrantliving #biancaenyart #darlinglittleday

Alana is my spirit animal. She is who I want to be when I grow up. She has challenges (Celiac's Disease), but she is joyful. She is one who really sees life through rose colored glasses. . And she can eat gluten free oatmeal cookie dough by the spoonful.😂 . Also trying to decide if I should carry the super cute long cardigan that she is wearing in my boutique. My girls LOVE them. They wear them with jeans, leggings, swim suits, pajamas, church dresses... You name it. . Do you have thoughts on the subject? Should I carry them?

Read the Bible, friend. 💜 The whole thing, not just bits and pieces. You don’t have to read it all in one day. But, please don’t just read the “high points.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It’s not just a list of rules and laws. It’s not a bunch of prosperity hype. It’s more than just a historical document. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It’s a story of the love of a Father for His children. It’s a story of a God who is just and also compassionate, gracious and loving. It’s the greatest story ever told of a Lover pursuing his Beloved. 💗 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But, if you don’t read the whole, entire thing, you miss the full story. If you miss the full story, the bits and pieces don’t make sense. 😩 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The hope makes no sense without the pain, the peace makes no sense without the struggle, faith makes no sense without something to believe in. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God." - Matthew‬ ‭4:4‬ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ pc: @unsplash
Beautiful mama.. ❣️I may or may not have had a little emotional break down today because I was having consistent contractions last night, then we when I woke up this morning-nothing 😩I know I still have 6 days til my due date but I was hoping just this once a baby of mine might decide to come early. But hey, at least it gives me a few more days to finish up all the projects my extreme nesting (OCD) feels are ”necessary” 😜
It was supposed to be just Hash and I for once, but no Kooper could not let that happen. 😂 #photobomb
