Stumbled upon a cute little park today and went rock hunting! The kids absolutely Loved it, and we managed to find some rocks too - this may be a new weekend fave!

Little Miss claimed a crown today at Anza and she is not letting it out of her sight. 👑 As soon as we got home, the sequin tutu was added too.👗 I managed to negotiate removal of them for bath time but not for bed time.💆♀️
I have been banished from her "castle room" and will have to figure out how to remove all princess attire in her sleep. 🤷♀️ #princessphaseinfulleffect #lovemyprincess #somuchpink
Birds and their beady eyes use to freak me out. To my daughter they are her friends (haha not that they have a choice 😂) the moment we got them she would carry them around like babies. Now I could of easily refused to get them and passed on my fear to her but instead I adapted and over came my fear (well with chickens 😉 I am not going near geese, swans or magpies 🙈) I look at money the same way my fears and past negative experiences with money I don't want to pass onto my kids I want to pass on the lessons I learned so they look at new things with fresh ideas and the tools to lay solid foundations in adult life.
As for the Geese, Swans and Magpies I know enough about them that I don't want to mess with them.
Unsure about Super, Insurance or investments? Don't live in the dark, you dont need to to knows the finer details but understand enough to know whats right for you and what is not 😘
Such a special few days - precious moments spent with new friends and old, and re-connecting with this gorgeous coastline that has captured my heart #Tutukaka
Some things can’t be outsourced, but we know the struggle is real.
Get ready for our next lauch - Club Flawsome ❤️
Every day you make me proud.
Last week, a grown man told me that he hand washes all of his rugby gear using fabric softener!!! That’s never going to happen in my house E V E R #aintnobodygottimeforthat
. Dave and I share laundry duty and though we’re not too fussy, we try to make sure Nixon’s easily irritated skin doesn’t flare from harsh detergents - easily managed by using the relaunched Cold Power Sensitive Pure Clean Laundry Liquid. It’s Dermatologist recommended and makes being kind to skin super easy and effective.

I'll be honest, I don't really like the school holidays much. I love my kids, love spending time with them and not having to set all those alarms but, holidays are tiresome. I work at home so trying to juggle the kids and still do the same amount of work is damn hard. So here I am, with a 5 min break just to update ig. Now it's back to work 😴😴😴
Real artists take the misery and sadness of life and translate it into art.
The smile that melts my heart 💙
The face of pure happiness. I adore the fact the kids can find joy in moments we as adults shrug off. An absolutely stunning winter day here in Rangiora with a cheeky fantail that kept flying around her.
This morning I had my second OB appointment and it was horrific. These babies will be my first born in hospital and I feel really uncomfortable and nervous about the whole situation. I have seen two different OB's and both times I've come away feeling really down about it. Each time they've spent the whole appt telling me everything that can go wrong and that I can't have the birth I want....it's beyond frustrating. Today I was told if I didn't do something that was their "protocol" my babies would die. No alternatives, no options, no compassion...just cold, harsh, words. I'm sure lots of women have amazing experiences in the hospital system but unfortunately that hasn't been our journey and I'm over it! I will be opting out of OB care from now on and just seeing my midwife so I can get my mind in a more positive place for our upcoming birth ❤️
When Marika was almost 6 months old, we learned that the cause of her eczema & uncomfortable squirmy sleeplessness was the result of a milk allergy. Considering I've had major issues with eczema myself , I felt pretty silly for not picking it up earlier 😣 but I never cared about myself enough to sacrifice cheese to fix my own problems 🤷♀️ bubs was obviously a game changer! That mum guilt tho! So just over a year into our dairy free journey & honestly, I don't think I will ever go back! Every time we slip up (usually by not reading ingredients properly!) we always pay for it! 🚫
This photo was taken in December with an itchy sugar hangover from her birthday & Christmas (don't get us started on the repercussions of refined sugar 😣 - another day!) when we found 1 of her fave treats from @goodboostco #wearetheitchyduo #milkallergy
I hired these crates out recently for a rustic baby shower. Love what they did with them.
This is it guys, the last couple of days before the August boxes close! 😁
Tomorrow I'll be announcing which two fiction books will be in the Adults box 💕
And we will be making a huge announcement soon about a new author we have on board the Look Book team 😍
