Emma Cossey  Freelancer. Mum of a toddler. Also @thefreelancelifestyle. My personal account, mainly mum life, food and my vague attempts at proper adulting.


Chocoholics is my parents' business, and they have Chocoholics all across the UK doing chocolate parties and selling through catalogues. Most of the work is done between Sep-Dec and in the six weeks before Easter, so it's a great term time job. Plus the upcoming Winter range is absolutely stunning, so it'll be an easy sell 😁(Oh and it's not multi level marketing, purely selling chocolate)

The new play areas outside at @jakes_playworld went down a storm with Oscar today, especially the construction area. Made me feel less guilty about escaping the soft play after only 40 minutes (because soft play is actual hell) #toddlerlife #toddleractivities #berkshire #bracknell #softplay

I've finally launched my @thefreelancelifestyle group coaching programme!
Savvy Solutions For The Self-Employed is a programme where we'll tackle a different area of your self-employed life each month, and I'll give you the tools, processes and support you need to save you time, stress and money! We'll cover topics like goal setting, social media automation, content creation, finance processes, sales, marketing and pitching/networking. You'll also get a 30 minute 1-2-1 coaching session, access to the private Facebook group, a monthly group video chat to catch up, and much, much more.
The really good news is that, until the 1st of June, subscribers can get it for just £10 a month!

@lauraagarwilson is right - parenting is so much easier when you can plonk them outside with water! (Oh, and this is my @play.hooray 4pm activity, although we've been doing it nearly all afternoon) #toddlerlife #spiritedchild #toddleractivities #blogbumpclub

@the_positive_planner are running a crowdfunder which ends tomorrow, for their positive planner for new mums (and dads, they can be just as affected) to help them with their mental health. As someone who had PND and deals with anxiety, journaling was and still is a huge help, and the exercises in this planner are brilliant for helping with mind monkeys. If you donate £20 (as I did yesterday), you'll not only help these lovely ladies launch, but you'll also get a copy of the planner yourself! Check out their bio for details of how you can donate.

Spa day

So in love with this @boochewuk teething necklace ordered through the brilliant @applesandpips. Oscar's on his last molars so we don't really need it, but I love the chunky texture and colours, plus if he tugs the necklace (as he often does), it just pops at the clasp rather than breaking the chain. #necklace #jewellery #teethingnecklace #mummylife #mumstyle #toddler #blogbumpclub

I've really struggled to find a suitable toddler class for Oscar. He's a #spirited little dude, so anything that involves sitting in a circle, singing songs or quietly waiting are a big no no. He wants to run and jump and climb, constantly. Today, we went to #tumbletots and (aside from a couple of tantrums), we had such a good time. With the bonus of him falling asleep on the way home, half way through eating a snack bar.

Absolutely loving this book. As a Questioner, I can often talk myself out of things, so the 5 second rule can really help . #fourtendencies #betterthanbefore #5secondrule #productivity #freelance #audiobook #iamreading #bookstagram #personaldevelopment #selfdevelopment #business
