Being a grown up is hard, this is how I have found it…

FOMO is real! Lowdown: ECMeetup here!

If you follow any of the Eastern Cape bloggers your social media will be filled snippets from our experience. An event for bloggers and brands to learn, make connections and bridge the gap. The event this year was amaze-balls! I know how real the “fomo” can get, so a lowdown: EC Meet Up just for you is in order. Although each of these “meetups” has been awesome, they really do just get better! Personally, I attend with one goal in mind – get energized. Whenever I leave a meet-up I am completely refreshed and ready to be the best blogger I can be.

Is it okay to lie to your kids?

Not too long ago, I flipped out because my daughter kept something from me, something I felt I should know. (I wrote about it here.) I later thought about how I am constantly trying to teach my child “life lessons” by example, like learning how to love the skin you are in. Mostly I feel pretty strongly about it in most instances, but when confronted with whether I lie to my kids, I wasn’t as confident about the answer. Which brings me to my next question – is it okay to lie to your kids?

Reader’s Choice – Top 5 posts on In the Meantime!

I can barely believe it, but I have been blogging for over a year. My blog birthday passed in February completely unnoticed by anyone, including me! When I started out this was really a space for me to express my thoughts, struggles and challenges with life. Life as a working full time wife, mother and person, it has since grown to a place for like-minded mom to find safety in the words “me too”. I’m honest, and my readers as it turns out love those posts the most! So this is a little reminiscent recap on where I’ve come from and my top 5 posts thus far!

Mother’s Day with a difference!

I’m not sure what I was expecting from the Mother’s Day Connect experience exactly. I was excited and nervous. I wasn’t sure exactly what I was going to say, or how my journey of motherhood was going to add value to someone. That however is because all I was thinking about was me. This was about so much more than just me, it was a Mother’s Day with a difference.

Mother’s Day Connect – Will you make a difference?

You may have noticed that my recent theme has been a lot about pregnancy, and my own feelings about being a mother. It may be because some of us are so blessed (I’m talking about myself. I am blessed.) Blessed that although my period of pregnancy as a young girl entering motherhood was difficult, I was fully supported. Supported by friends and family, on the day I gave birth I was surrounded by loved ones. Not every mother is this blessed. With this in mind the awesome team at Embrace has started a wonderful campaign – Mother’s Day Connect.
