The best things in life aren’t ‘things’. .
.
It’s what those ‘things’ give you. .
And, our new sofa gives us a space to sit as a family, talk about our days, laugh together, cuddle, watch tv and just relax. .
.
She is so much more than a sofa, she is our happy place 😍
.
.
Happy Sunday! 😘

H E L P .... I think I’ve got ‘Instagrammers-block’.... •

Do you ever lose sight on what to post? Feel you’re taking the same picture time and time again, just at a oh so slightly different angle?

“Maybe if I move this cushion 20 degrees i can pass this as a ‘new’ post”

So what do you do? Post ANOTHER bedroom picture 🤣

Happy Friday you beautiful lot!!

This little lady has achieved the milestone we’ve all been waiting for and is now walking 🙌🏻 - I couldn’t be prouder!. I’ve watched her get frustrated but continue to try. I’ve watched her fall but pick herself back up time and time again.
.
With patience and determination she’s found her freedom!
.
Way to go baby girl - every step you continue to take I’m right behind you! 😘

STOP ✋🏻

Does your home hug you when you get in after a long day? If your walls could speak would they remind you of the incredible memories you’ve made amongst them? Are there marks on your walls from where your children have played and grown up? Is it a place where you feel safe, warm and loved?

Remember ALL of the above when you feel the Instagram pressure to ‘keep up’. Your home is YOUR Home and when you’ve got all of the above who cares if you don’t have the latest TV set or the most up to date Dyson model.

I’ve seen so many people either leaving IG, taking time out or getting down about their homes and it saddens me. This is a community that should be uplifting, encouraging and boosting.

Let’s stick together! 😘

One shot of tiredness, a dash of lethargy, full fat in a takeaway cup!
.
Who knew your life could be summed up as a coffee order 🤣
.
We have been non-stop lately! It’s partly why I love summer, BUT boy do we need a ‘rest day’ and today is exactly that!
.
Happy Sunday, what’s everyone up to?

Literally have nothing else to add, except pass the wine 🍷🤣!! Hope everyone’s having a better Thursday... on the plus side - Friday tomorrow 💃🏼 wahoooooo!! .

• And in the middle of the chaos; there is you •
.
.
Something so simple, as picking stones on the beach, is often the most magical moments.
.
We work, we strive, we earn, we provide. We care, we love, we give, we give a bit more.
.
Us women of the world spin plates quicker than Josh’s head spun to Kaz (#loveisland) And sometimes we need moments like this to stop. Slow down. And remember what we’re doing it all for.
.
Press your pause button at some point this week. Take stock of where you’ve come, what you’ve achieved and give yourself an almighty pat on the back.

• Big Black Box •

.
How many of us are surrounded around a Big Black Box tonight? ⚽️ 🥅
.
Will a television ever be ‘insta-worthy’? God they’re ghastly aren’t they!
.
If it’s not our phones, it’s the television. How many of us honestly put technology away and enjoy ‘old school’ communication?
.
I am as guilty as charged! BUT being at my in-laws this weekend I have promised to only use my phone (after tonight 🤣) to capture photos.
.
If you find it hard to break away - think you’ll lose engagement or worry your following will drop. STOP - your personal life engagement will increase, your children will follow you and you will feel much happier.
.
Take 5 minutes away from technology this weekend. I promise we’ll all still be here. 😘

Her face says it all... she knows how to play and she hasn’t stopped all day.. I wasn’t mentally prepared for this ‘milestone’ 🤣

• You gotta wiggle and wind your body •
.
.
Ever feel as flat as a pancake. Like everything is an effort?
.
Have you put diesel in instead of petrol - I’m talking about ourselves! (All I seem to put in is wine and ice cream mind🤣🤦🏼‍♀️)
.
Being a mum, wife, sister, aunt, friend etc is exhaustinggggg and guess who is bottom of the pile for self-care? Yep, moi. Once you make sure everyone else is happy you’re too pooped to take care of yourself.
.
But this is your reminder to find 5 minutes this weekend to do just that. Give yourself a little MoT.
.
Read a chapter of that book you’ve been promising you’ll start. Go for a walk. Eat breakfast outside. Catch up with that trashy boxset.
.
Whatever you do - do you. 😘

I’ve always loved walking and being outdoors. It does things for the mind and body that I rarely find in anything else.
.
.
It’s most certainly not found at the bottom of a Haagen Dazs tub of ice cream... trust me, I’ve looked numerous times!!
.
.
If you’re a Fitbit user and fancy teaming up on the app to set goals, challenge and motivate each other - (as the cool kids would say) hit me up! Or I would say ‘slide into my DMs’ but I’m pretty sure that’s a euphemism for something I’m not looking for 🤷🏼‍♀️🤣.
.
.
I’ve really upped my daily step game lately and would love to ‘buddy’ up and get fit and motivated with some of you!

Let’s get connected!! Comment below or DM me. 🏃🏻‍♀️ 🏃‍♂️

Hi 👋🏻 my name is Liz, I’m 32 and I stockpile photos to post.
.
Here’s one I made earlier.. quite clearly by the time shown on the clock 🙊
.
I don’t know what’s happened since returning from holiday but I feel like a grenade has gone off and everything is just crazy busy!
.
Please tell me I’m not alone in drowning with life 🤣.
.
Hope everyone has had a wonderful Sunday! 🌸
