This made me laugh this morning! Can you relate?! ✋
If you’re an expecting or new mama you should be able to get a breastpump for free through your insurance! Unfortunately, insurance companies don’t always make it easy which is is why I love partnering with @aeroflow_breastpumps and sharing their amazing FREE service that takes care of all of the paperwork and hassle of dealing with your insurance. Simply go to aeroflowbreastpumps.com/birthhour and they will take care of everything!

I've really been into delicate whites lately. They just feel so serene and calming, which is just what I need :) Thank you guys so so much for all the sweet words and encouragement on my last post. It means more to me than you know. I'm doing a lot better lately and really enjoying painting again! There will always be things in life that are out of our control, and all we can do is our best, right? Hope you're all having a great week so far! xo
I set up my company 10 years ago at 23 from my dining room table in South Kensington, I had no formal qualifications in this field and only one project under my belt working for a developer. There are so many things I learnt: from experience, learning from talented people I worked with and mistakes I made along the way. There is no doubt in my mind I was always meant to be a designer, I truly love my job and feel excited by every project we take on, there is nothing more satisfying than creating your clients dream home. I often wished along the way that I had a mentor or someone in the industry I could ask for answers on how to deal with certain tricky situations... I know that many of you feel the same- judging by the huge amount of DMs I receive every day asking for career/ design advice... I don’t have time to answer each DM individually so I thought I would open up this discussion where you can comment below with your questions and I will try to answer as many as possible. Bear with me as I’m still on holiday in California... it’s night time here -there is an 8 hour time difference (plus I have a toddler and no nanny here and also business emails and enquiries to tend to with my team back in the UK) but I will do my best to offer honest advice. At this point I probably need to apologise in advance to my husband who is unlikely to get any attention in the next 24 hours 😉 if you can read through all the comments to see if I have already answered the same question you had I’d be grateful so I only have to answer each question once! 😉
I see you Monday, and I raise you coffee. • Does anyone else have a habit of feeling guilty when they’re focusing on self-care?
I’m hoping to be more intentional (and guilt-free) with my free-time this week. Whether it’s dedicated to rest, family, projects, New Zealand planning, or work, my goal is to plan it out ahead of time.
What’s your best tip for living an intentional life?

2018 is the year of self-love, self-care, and self-worth. Every ounce of love and energy I put in someone else, I’m putting in myself.
Duck face 🦆 or moose face? 🤔 Fact: moose live near our house and we find moose 💩 regularly around our yard 😳 we’ve named one moose Morty 💁♀️ anyway, my workout is done ✅ 10 flights of stairs, followed by @beachbody Hip Hop Abs Cardio version with wrist weights, then some DR healing exercises and about 100 crunches 💪 another morning IEP meeting 👩🏫 and full day of teaching. Thank God it’s almost Friday, amirite?! By the way, I am pretty sure most of my students would think #amirite is a real word 😆 #whynot#fitmom#narcolepticmom#teachermom#workingmom

Tired eyes this morning. We can’t wait to have our lazy mornings and snuggles! no rushing to work in the morning, no alarm clocks! Just mom and Atlas spending as much time together as we want 🖤 I’m so grateful to my business for giving me the chance to make an income while I stay home with Atlas. God is so good for putting this opportunity in front of me. How many mamas wish they didn’t have to rush off to work in the morning? #opportunity#momlife#workingmom#stayathomeadventure#morningmotivation#AtlasHayes#boymom#love

Another day of having fun at the nursery. What a great feeling you get when you see that your child is developing his personality more and he is able to share playing with his peers! Socializing is one of the important things in a toddler’s life where they learn that the world is not only about them and they start thinking about others through sharing toys, turns, laughs etc... Yes it does take time for them to understand exactly what is friendship or taking care of others but it does help a lot in building this concept.. So happy to see you adjusting again baby Adam ❤️ #childcare#nursery#dubaibaby#workingmom#social#life#friends#happymom#love#nannylife#babyadam_diaries
When you’re busier than a one-armed paper hanger... crockpot meals to the rescue. 🍽 Search “crockpot” on MightyMrs.com to get my favorites. 😋 Pardon some of the old photos, they taste better than they look. 🙈 My photography has come a ways since then so I probably should update those at some point. 🤔Anyone have some free time I can borrow? 🤷♀️ #busymom
In meinem Praktikum ist fast Halbzeit und ich muss sagen, dass klappt alles besser als erwartet. Ich bin gut wieder in die Arbeit reingekommen und fühle mich auch sicher in dem was ich tue. Moritz findet es nicht schlimm, dass ich morgens als erste das Haus verlasse und ihn nicht in die Kita bringe, ich glaube er genießt die Morgende mit Papa oder Oma und Opa. Momentan habe ich den Luxus, dass ich ihn abholen kann, das finden wir beide schön. Das wird mir fehlen wenn die 6 Wochen Schule anstehen, aber ich glaube wir schaffen das und 6 Wochen sind ja eine absehbare Zeit.
Heute habe ich vor dem Abholen noch win paar Minuten für mich und habe es mir mit Kaffee, Kuchen und meinem Buch gemütlich gemacht.
I’ve really been enjoying moving through @emilyley ’s “A Simplified Life.” 💘
One of the tools I’ve implemented is to do laundry daily instead of one big laundry day. I hate laundry. No—I loathe it. 🤬BUT, doing it daily has made it much more manageable and is turning into a habit in the AM for me to just throw a load in before I workout. 👍🏼 Little things like that really do help me feel like my hair isn’t on fire. 🔥 Anyone else do this?
