This girl is nothing short of amazing! She knew I was exhausted and not feeling well tonight. So she did two loads of washing and the dishwasher, all without being asked to do a single thing. ❤ #biggestgirl#mumofmany#growingup#thoughtful

👣 Completely customised gift 👣 Introducing my first male product, the custom cuff links. These stainless steel 12 mm cuff links can be completely customised for the man in your life this Father’s Day. They can include sand from a special vacation, locks of hair from your children, his favourite colour, soil from the family farm and so much more. Used to secure dress shirts, your Father, Husband or Father in law, can hold onto these sentimental pieces of jewellery throughout his work day. Looking down on the piece will warm his heart and give him inspiration all day long when he is away from the ones he loves. The set photographed include red sand from my outback honeymoon. We visited the sand dunes at Windorah on our travels and spent so long adventuring up and around on them. It was a magical place with incredible views. Looking at these takes me back to this moment. I remember what I was wearing, the photos we took, the sun that set as we indulged in a scotch or two, and how my sandshoes filled with this gorgeous red sand. A memory I will cherish forever ❣ It gives me great pleasure to introduce these to you. If you would like to capture a memory for your loved one in a set of cuff links for Father’s Day, orders need to be in this week! So until Sunday, I am offering an introductory price of $68 including postage home for a set of custom cuff links. If you would like a pair for this Father’s Day, please send me a message ASAP to get the ball rolling.
👣 Being a mum 👣 I will never get sick of hearing mummy mummy, even when it’s on repeat for hours with tears streaming down my little man’s face. Being a mum is my greatest achievement in life. It is fulfilling, inspiring, motivating and has given me strength I never knew I had. But it is also challenging, exhausting and constantly testing every ounce of your being. People don’t talk about the hard stuff much, the hours that feel like days, the days that feel like weeks. I think if there was a mother out there that has never said a bad word about her life or her children, she would be kidding herself! I don’t sugar coat motherhood but I do look at all these moments as part of my journey. The good and the bad, the ugly and the pretty and the sour and the sweet. These moments make me who I am and help me to grow for my little family. I am so blessed to have my toddler and another baby in my belly. I never thought this would happen for me but it did and for a good reason. The love you feel for your children can not be described in words so I can only try to show them through my actions. They say actions speak louder than words and I believe the do. So today, even though my mum life is feeling a little tough, I am putting on a strong front, getting my jobs done for my family and being brave in getting the whopping cough injection to protect my unborn baby. What does being a mum feel like for you?
Letting go. . . . Rhys has headed of today on a residential cadet camp for a whole week. At 13 years old this is the longest he will of ever been away from home and it's a real challenge for us all. As a parent we control everything for as long as We can to keep our babies safe, we danger analyse every situation, we control everything we can control. So as he goes of onto army camp and I have no idea where he is, I've not checked out where he's going to sleep, i dont know what hes eating, I don't even know who is looking after him, I'm feeling rather nervous. I've signed consent forms for him to take part in activities that would have me biting my nails with nerves and worrying about every possible dangerous outcome and im finding it hard to let go of the overwhelming feeling of needing to be in control. 13 years old and not my baby anymore, who said they need to grow up this fast. #armycadets#annualcamp#growingup

👣 Sneak Peek 👣 With the start of #wbw2019 (World Breastfeeding Week) AND this weekend attending my first #thehandmadeexpomarket in Toowoomba, it’s time to celebrate. With this in mind, I’ve decided to release a brand new ring. A royal ring that is impressive and majestic. A statement piece that will turn your fleeting moments and milestones into something tangible, ready to be enjoyed time and time again. Are you interested in what’s coming?

*Long post warning... Today was more than just a fun filled day creating these magical memories... Today was so much more to me... The last time I was at Rainbow's end was about 4years ago a few months after Mia & Levi were born. I was at my heaviest I'd ever been & I took Micah for a friend's birthday.. I will never forget that day. He was so excited (just like these two today) his eye's all lit up in awe of the magic that surrounded him. The typical boy that he is had absolutely no fear & he wanted to do every ride remotely possible. We got round to the second or third turn on the bumper boat's and he was desperate for Me to jump on the ride with him (bumper boats were his favorite....) So I did, I got in a boat, the horn sounded & everyone began pulling out, at 140kgs there was absolutely no room to move so I stayed in the boat bay unable to move until the ride supervisor came & pushed me out... The queue was huge being the weekend and so many people waiting for there turn. I tried to manouver the boat as best I could but sat in a spin as there was simply no room to move the engine... Micah was having the time of his life, "Mum I got you all wet" he yelled over the noise of the outboard motor as he crashed into me repeatedly... It was the longest 3 or 4 minutes of my life... I will never forget the feeling of shame, shame that I had gotten to this point in my life, I was trying my best but it was this point where the horn sounded and everyone made their way back to the boat bays, jumped out and exited the ride.. This Mumma sat spiralling unable to move & the supervisor had to come & rescue me... Walking the longest 5meters of my life past the queue of People to ashamed to give anyway eyecontact.. Internally I just wanted to die I was so embarrassed but I shook it off as to Micah I was his Mum, all he had ever known and he loved everybit of me. But enough was enough & It was this day I vowed to put myself first & seek the help I needed to loose weight so I
