FOUR MONTHS OF LOVING YOU THEA JAMES 🌼
Finding new ways to reuse things & avoid kmart for storage solutions (& the rest of the things I 'need'). Whilst in the shower, I realized we had no soap on hand as it was in the cupboard 🙄 now there is soap at the ready without having to get out of the shower & get water everywhere. The old candle jar did just the trick (swipe) 🌿 ______________________________ #reuse #soap #bathroomdecor #bathroom #palmolive #Kmart #johnfreida #genius #creative #savingmoney #upcycle #kmartnz #bathroomplants #fakeplantsneverdie #fakeplants #swipe #kiwimama #nzmama #bathroomideas #clever

IT’S OFFICIAL Congratulations to Harry and Megan their baby news! - I love hearing about new babies! I think because it reminds me so much of that special time when you first find out you are expecting your own little bundle of joy.💕 - It’s such a special time - even with the morning sickness 🤢 What advice would you give to a brand new mama to be?
I have been asked a few times when I will put Mila in her cot in her own room at night. After the conversations I have every intention to give it a go but I never do. • I have been thinking about it long and hard and truth is I’m not ready. I love going to bed at night with Hubby next to me on one side, Roger cuddled into him and Mila sleeping in her bassinet on my other side. I feel my heart is content because I know my family is close and safe. • I know that the day she can pull herself up is her way of telling me she is ready and I need to accept that. • This mama doesn’t want to let go quite yet and I don’t think there is anything wrong with that. I also don’t think there is anything wrong if you choose to put you baby in their own room earlier than I have. • You be you - as long as you and your family are healthy and safe. ❤️
Progress is slow but happening but happened even slower over school holidays as there wasn’t the normal things to do. We are day 2 off term 4 and the moving countdown is on the countdown Christmas will be on. How fast has this year gone.
NO BAKE SLICE A bit of a classic, switched up with less sugar and no dairy. I use the @nairnsoatcakesnz but you could swap them for any gf/df biscuit. RECIPE 1 x 200g box Nairns chocolate oatcakes (the ginger biscuits are nice in this as well!) 50g coconut 1/4 cup coconut sugar 1/4 cup cocoa 3 tbsp almond milk 75g coconut oil or dairy free butter alternative 1 cup walnuts (or almonds) chopped Crush the biscuits is a bag or pulse in a blender so they are coarse but not fine and add to a bowl with the coconut and walnuts. Melt the coconut oil (or dairy free butter), stir through the coconut sugar and milk. Add this to the biscuits, coconut and walnuts. Stir to combine. Pour into a lined rectangular cake tin and place in the fridge to set. Yum! . . . . #dairyfree #baking #foodiegram #kiwimamalife #kiwimama #nzmum #foodie #instagood #foodofinstagram #yummy #sharefood #foodshare #foodlovers #amazingfood #foodblogger #foodstyle #foodtime #ig_food #delicious
Invitation to play! 🍌🐻 Teddy bears picnic! Well Peter rabbit and friends picnic. Emelia-Michelle and Lucan have been playing picnics. And he keeps leaving her plates of food set up. So tomorrow mornings invitation to play - is the teddy bears picnic! With story time, cameras for photography and an assortment of yummy imaginative treats! And maybe while I get her ready for daycare, I'll play her the teddy bear picnic song too 😍 . #kiwimama #teachermum #teddybearpicnic #invitationtoplay

I never imagined I'd have a girl. Not sure why, really.... just couldn't picture it. So when Matt said "it's a girl!" when Imogen was born, I replied, "Really?" My midwife was so convinced I was having another boy that she kept referring to Immy as 'he' and we had to remind her! But this little girl is so kooky and full of character already, I love it! She's so clever and hilarious - she must get that from me - and I love watching her become a little person.

LUNCH BOX must-have! Made with real organic fruits and zero-added sugar. Our Fruit & Oat Bar will keep your kids go-go-going! #backtoschool #healthysnacksnz
OVERNIGHT OATS I eat oats EVERY morning which my husband thinks is crazy but I love them! There are endless ways you can prepare oats but this is one of my favourites. Place 1 cup of oats and 1 tsp chia seeds with 1 1/2 cups of almond milk or coconut yoghurt (I like a combination). You can add maple syrup, honey or cinnamon if you like a bit of sweetness. Cover and leave in the fridge over night. In the morning top with fruit, more yoghurt and nuts. . . . . #oats #porridge #dairyfree #vegan #veganrecipes #veganfoodspot #foodiegram #breakfast #breakfastideas #foodie #foodieofinstagram #instafood #yummy #cleaneatingrecipe #yummyfood #foodlovers #kiwimamalife #nzmum #kiwimama
He’s gone to sleep at bedtime without getting out of bed and crying at his door for three nights in a row now 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 We’ve also had 3 weeks of sleeping through the night 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻 After at least 18 months of nightly wake ups and constant bedtime dramas (not to mention being pregnant and having child number two during that time) this is a MASSIVE deal 🕺🏾🍾🎉 #whoopwhoop #longmayitlast #sleepglorioussleep #lifewithatoddler

James is HARD work at the moment. Favourite word is NO whilst screaming his head off 🙄 All food put before him is met with him picking it up, moving it to the side & saying "YUCK" 😳 #helpmetomcruise ______________________________ #toddler #toddlerlife #newborn #toddlertantrums #nztoddler #mummeme #true #factsonfacts #motherandson #motherhoodunited #motherhood #parenthood #repost #motherhoodrising #motherhoodinspired #kiwimama #nzmama
I’m crushing on kimonos at the moment and loving this one from @outershell.clothing.nz 😍 - I love how they can dress up an outfit and add a splash of colour! - Have you got one in the wardrobe yet?🙋‍♀️
Daylight saving means after dinner walks with the fam. Might have to head back to our favourite row of blossom trees and take a few more snaps for the memory bank. A Blossom tree backdrop is just way too stunning not to take advantage of... plus the dog gets walked 👌 I'm all about that working smarter not harder lifestyle.

After two days cooped up at home feeling sorry myself with this stupid horrid cold I gathered up the little energy I had and walked the kids to a playground. So happy I did. Instantly felt better. And of course, they had so much fun. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Some old-fashioned things like fresh air and sunshine are hard to beat” - Laura Ingalls-Wilder ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #mentalhealthtrifecta #moveyourbody #breathefreshair #soakupthatvitamind
While the boys destroy the living room (there's k'nex, bits of pirate ship and dead fish everywhere, over there, by the alien spaceship 🤣) I destroy my 'I can't' mind set 👌 I wish this #queenfire mindset came easily for me, but it's a work in progress and I'm ok with that - the journey is going to be fun 🖤 but I'm gunna leave this right here, for accountability, so I can look back regularly and see how far I've come. #beautifulbodies #tigerstripes #kiwimama #mamaofboys #bodypositivity #change #healthiswealth #allbodiesarebeautiful #femmefit #getfit #accountability #beautystartsinside #queenfire #positivemindset #mindset #selflove #aimntribe #bbg #beginnings #bbgcommunity #bbgmoms #kaylaitsines
....feeling super overwhelmed with everything at the moment.....Life seems to be getting busier, lonelier, tougher...Trying to be the best mom, wife, Christian, a better friend to myself and now most recently a good employee too. So I guess all I am trying to say is...its ok to not be ok all the time Mamas!!! You have a tough job, and the expectations seem to be endless. Give yourself a break, take some time off, read your fav book whilst the house falls to pieces, take a long bath or indulge with your fav choccie... because you cant successfully look after others and be the best you unless you learn to take care of yourself, and make sure your well being is a priority too.

Pies ... who doesn't love a good pie. Food envy I'd love to be making a yummy lamb mince pie right about now. Yes please for the recipe #vjcooks 🤗😍✔ #Repost @vj_cooks (@get_repost ) ・・・ ✨Moroccan Lamb Pies✨ Not very pretty 😁 but oh so tasty 😋. These lamb mince pies are flavoured with @pepperandme_ Mo’rocckin paste, garlic, lemon zest and currants. Such a yummy flavour combo with the mince from @homegrownfarmfresh and puff pastry from @countdown_nz 👌🏼. It would also be a great filling to make mini pies or even in filo pastry. 🥧 The yoghurt and mint dressing goes so well with them too 🌱 Send me a DM if you want the typed up recipe photo 👍🏼 - #whatsfordinnervj #vjcooks #mypepperandme #pepperandme #homegrownfarmfresh #kiwifood #dinneroninstagram #nzfoodie #nzmum #kiwimama #kiwimum #lambpies #nzlamb #beefandlamb

PERSONAL IDENTITY Motherhood is a new phase in life that causes a major shift in identity. I can also call it as a redefining moment. Before having Leon I was confident I would be able to continue my busy career while being a loving mother... These days, I have understood that it's better for my family if I'm not working full-time. Eventhough, I'm embracing this change and take it as an opportunity to grow, it's a bit hard to keep my personal identity. Stay-at-home Mothers your are awesome! Working Mums you are a bloody legends!!! I'm very excited to see where this path in "finding new me" will led me to #thinkingoutloud This photo was taken 5 months ago when Leon just turned 10 months. It seems like yesterday... #slowdowntimeplease
