The Modern Day Living had so much fun last weekend covering the Portsea Polo... Thank you to all that were involved in making our day great.
Keep an eye out for everything Portsea Polo in our next issue 💕 #TheModerndayLiving
Another one of Kates gorgeous gift boxes including our Montego necklace heading off today! Gosh she does an amazing job.. and takes all the stress away for gifting special occasions 💚
Ohhhhh we’re so ready for you SUN!
I’m spotty, almost transparent, and in desperate longing for hot beaming sunshine!!
We’re humans even designed to live in freezing conditions??? I don’t think I was.
One of my most exciting goals is to be in a position where I’m off travelling with these monkeys for the whole of the Summer and every half term.
I wanna drive through The States, feed Elephants in Thailand 🐘, sit on Diana’s bench at the Taj 🕌, Walk the wave in Arizona 🌵, shmooze in the sky gardens of Singapore 🌷, and build a sandcastle on every beach of Sicily 🏖.
Dream BIG, and don’t stop, don’t GIVE UP, until you’ve made that shit a reality!!

Today we visited @babyspamelbourne
and Adelaide had an absolute ball. Having a facility where your baby can float and then experience a gorgeous massage is fantastic. Our little one was all smiles in the tub, smelt beautiful (until she vomitted all over me) and has finally given in for a nap! Thank you so much @babyspaaustralia
for a great morning! Would definitely recommend this as a treat for bub ❤
TGIF! Weekend is finally here! This will be one of your favourite daily nursing dress. It’s super soft, comfortable and functional. Once you wear it, you’ll never want to take it off 🙊

SKYE: CUSTOMER SERVICE GURU
Our Skye, has just returned from Maternity leave and we are so thrilled to have her back plus to welcome a new baby to the team at Riff Raff. You may have seen us share her beautiful baby girl Goldie who is THE dream babe. Skye is the kind of lady who is actually *never* tired. You know those mythical creatures that seem to function on happiness alone. Not triple shot lattes like the rest of us? HA!!
As our customer service guru, she makes it her business to keep our customers happy and we kind of think she teleports joy and calmness through Facebook messenger? We've oodles of positive feedback from those of you who have dealt with her and its not hard to see why.
When Skye's not busy being all energetic with us, she hangs out with her equally energetic son Jaggar who is approaching 3. Jaggar is her constant reminder that mums really shouldn't swear as frequently as she does 🙈 Hilarious, attitude a plenty and an all round rocking lil dude, Jaggar is shaping up to be the big brother Goldie would dream of.
We get the feeling that Skye doesn't really understand the term down time as in between being a mum / wife / uni life and looking after you all, she still manages to catch her friends at a fabulous new bar in the inner north. We all wish we could be that cool mum like Skye x
Do you ever wonder what babies are thinking? Especially in those early days... they can’t think in words, so I wonder what’s going through their head?
For Frankie, no doubt it’s food. 🍇
Did you catch @prettychuffed
stylin our brand new ANIMAL PRINT BLUSH TOP yesterday? It’s the same great cut as our best selling drape tops, this time in a beautifully soft rayon. These sell out every time so be quick x #linkinbio #chasingcaseclothing
Oh yes! I want the swing in my room - imagine curling up with a book in there!!
Inspiration from @room2dream
Its snowing and we are feeling very excited about it! Although Lena thinks that means it’s Christmas again so that took some explaining! ☃️❄️🌨

Did you know? 🤔💡
Laughter r e a l l y is the best medicine😂😂 as doctors find it can be as healthy as exercise. 💪Just two minutes of laughter can do as much good for your body as a 20-minute jog around the park, doctors have claimed.👌
a n d as we like to follow doctor’s orders 👼, we casually froze our bums off at Central Park and watched and laughed at all the stupid joggers 🤣🤣🤣but why the heck is it so cold out there?!?😅❄️☃️
This is how the nursing panel works. You pull aside at the outer V neck to reveal a slit in the inner V neck. No zips. Made in Singapore from imported fabrics (Japan). Reasonably priced. Great color for all year round! .

Ah caffeine how I love thee!
I’ve crammed my schedule a little tight this week as:
A) my wee man turns 4 and has his party on Saturday (with a request of lemon flavoured birthday cake?) and all the things that go along with a party (cleaning/making food/re-cleaning just prior to when people arrive) and…
B) a website to launch and gear to upload!
I do function well with lots to do but I also I have a secret weapon…coffee…black, hot and large!

CONFESSIONS OF A....
I am one. I fill all of my spare time with productiveness and I get overcome with guilt when I do something that is not propelling me towards my goals.
Can you relate?
When you’re a mum and you work from home, juggling becomes an internal battle of balancing blocks of time.
It can be overwhelming if you’re ambitious and want to do EVERYTHING and build a frickin’ empire NOW!
But here’s the thing. You cannot pour from an empty glass. If you work yourself to the bone without looking after body and mind... your glass becomes broken, let alone empty.
I’ve taken some time out from working. Just two days to clear my headspace, recharge, and look after myself.
💥Calls with coaches and friends
...All that good therapeutic shit.
Instead of the “work and burn” approach I’ve been running with for the last three years... I’m going to just change one thing:
I’m adding a “Daily Indulgence Goal” to my business planner each day.
Every day I’m going to indulge myself in one thing that makes me feel amazing, and refreshed.
Whether that be a film, a hot candle lit bath, a takeaway, reading a trashy novel, shopping... whatever I feel like.
You’re worth more than the weekend and a few weeks holiday a year. I’m giving you the permission you’re looking for to spoil yourself every day.
Up for it?👇🏼what’s your #dailyindulgencegoal
