We've had lots of questions from you about how we got our babies into a routine. It's simple - we were just so effing tired that we saw no other option 😂 [#ThisIsMothership #parenting #sleepdeprivation #newmums]

The Duchess of Cambridge has given birth to a baby boy! 💙👶🏼

✨✨We are SO excited to announce we are hosting an evening with @ChanelOfficial on May 1st at their Spitalfields Boutique - and YOU are invited ✨We know. Chanel 😍 We've been working on the details for this event since before Christmas and it's going to be AMAZING. Mega make-up artist @kaymontano will be giving a masterclass teaching us all how to get JLo-esque healthy glowing skin, we’ll be giving our tips on how to feel and look less tired, and we've both created our very own capsule make-up collections so that you can buy either the ‘Sam Edit’ or the ‘Gemma Edit’ on the night ❤ Spaces are limited, tickets are FREE and everyone leaves with an AMAZING @chanel.beauty toiletry bag packed with products. To book just email ThisIsMothership@chanel.co.uk ✨ See instastories for more info! GO, GO, GO!

P.S We tried to take a fancy selfie with just us in the fancy loos at Chanel but both babies had a simultaneous meltdown and FOMO so we had to have them in it 😂[#ThisIsMothership #Chanel #ChanelMakeup #CreateYourself]

Here's four fun facts about us 💫 📱We met on @instagram. Yep. It's like internet dating for mums. We'll tell you the full story another day... 🏥 We gave birth to our firsts in the same hospital, in the same room, on the same bed, after being in the same birthing pool, in the same way #freaky. (Umm but luckily not at the same time 🙈 as we didn't meet for another eight months. 👯) And our seconds were two weeks apart but both seven days late 🙄 🎓We went to the same university, at the same time, know loads of the same people yet we never met. ☀ We stayed at the same resort, on the same island in the Maldives - 15 months apart. Gemma honeymooned where Sam got engaged. 🎈Our dads birthdays were both this week (Sam's dad turned 60 on Tuesday and Gemma's dad turned 62 on Thursday) so today we’re both going out to celebrate 🎂 With our dads. Not each other 😂 Have a fun Saturday, whatever you’re doing and let’s all pray we get to lie in tomorrow until at least7am (ha!) [#ThisIsMothership #ThisIsUs #InstaMum]

With the royal baby due imminently (anyone else want to go hang out at the Lindo Wing?!) we’ve been wondering, how do you like to dress yours? Traditionally like George and Charlotte, or with a more modern twist? 👸🏻🤴🏼 We’ve compiled our edit of the top Royal baby fashion trends, from crisp collars to modern motifs. Each item on there can be delivered using @CollectPlus which is basically the dream #mumhack. Packages get delivered to your local shop and most are open very early until very late, so you can pop over and collect it whenever’s convenient. No more waiting in for a delivery slot, or even worse, no more delivery men ringing the doorbell and waking up your sleeping babe 💪🏻Click the link in bio and have a shop 😊[#ThisIsMothership #ad #royalbaby #Chanel #converse]

Dive into La Mer // A beautiful place to start the day - an intimate & inspiring natter with the @thisismothership duo hosted at the gorgeous @lameruk popup space in Soho Square. It was so lovely to meet these authentic, stylish & lovely mums who talked about the importance of self-care, me-time, focussing on one venture at a time & beauty hacks. It was also an opportunity to try out some La Mer products. The Renewal Mask is on my wish-list! Full blogpost coming soon to bow-street.com. Swipe for more pics ☀️🤰🏽👄💄🕶

Throw back to Jackson's 8th Birthday....he absolutely loved the Minecraft themed party I designed and put together for him. This is my tribe, my family and the reason I work so hard on my own businesses... I'm passionate about making every day a celebration and even more so on their birthdays. The memories are awesome... 😍
#throwbackthursday #throwback

Well hello. How amazing was the weather today?! We spent the morning hanging out with some of you (and your babes 😍) at the @lameruk pop up. It was the dream collab: colouring books, kids snacks and coffee - as well as iconic moisturiser by the tap load ✨They even had a changing mat on stand by (which was used!) The morning was all about how we make work work for us and our families, and how we manage to take a little time for ourselves and we hope you found it useful. The incredible pop up is open until Saturday, it’s free to visit, you’ll get moisturiser matched and a weeks worth of La Mer to take away ❤️ and there’s ☕️free coffee☕️ Oh yeah, and it will give you serious interiors envy. There’s also a park right outside so you can bribe your kids with a visit there after 👶🏻 💪🏻 link in our bio for more info or check out our stories 😘 [#ThisIsMothership #LoveLaMer #LaMerAmbassador #spon #WorkingMum]

I've mentioned it before but I'm way more of a minimalist than a 'lets bring everything plus the kitchen sink' kinda gal when I go away. The thought of having a million suitcases and 'stuff' for holiday fills me with anxiety so before holidays I write lists of the absolute essentials and try not to bring any extras 😀 Worse case scenario, I can buy things when I'm out there. So this @Cybex_Global car seat is basically like all my Christmasses have come at once. IT RECLINES!! TO FULLY FLAT! I mean, why didn't someone invent this sooner?! Perfect for those days when you end up being out much longer than usual, and then panic about the baby being in the car seat too long✌🏻 So all we needed to bring for Ace for this trip was the buggy and car seat, plus a clever little foldable crib that fit inside my suitcase 💪🏻💪🏻(thanks for all your crib tips on Stories) I even Amazon primed nappies to the place we are staying 😂 Do you bring it all or risk being stuck without something when you travel?? [#ThisisMothership #cybex #ad #travellingwithkids]

Just a mere 88 years between the oldest and the youngest people in this picture 💜 (Although a mutual love of polka dots)

It's been a different type of holiday to the usual - we've spent the majority of it hanging out in a retirement home with some lovely ladies and gentlemen whose average age is 93. They all repeat everything they say and ask our names 100 times a day 😂 But it's unreal to see how much all their faces light up when they see my babies walk (or in Ace's case, be carried) through the door.
The weather has been HORRIFIC. We've had a 2 day ice storm which sounds as dramatic as it is, and I only brought my @Chanelofficial trainers, which turns out, aren't ice storm appropriate 😂 We are flying home tomorrow, and both kids only just adjusted to the time difference yesterday 🙄 So wish me luck for my flight, that is if we manage to make it out of here 🤦🏻‍♀But the most important thing is, seeing my Grandmas face everytime we walked through the door and having pics like these of the main ladies in my life (minus one sister who is sunning it up in South Africa instead) that I will treasure forever 💛💛💛 P.S All tips for jet lag welcome - we've got a @LaMerUK breakfast party on Thursday AM with a bunch of you lovely mums and I need to be on my A-game ✌ [#Thisismothership #toronto #Family #generations]

Alfie is 12 weeks today and he is sleeping through 🎉🎉 However don’t hate me just yet because Leo is not 😫 Over the last two weeks his sleeping has gone off the scale horrific. He screams if anyone tries to put him to bed but me, won’t let me leave the room while he falls asleep or he goes hysterical and has started waking up multiple times throughout the night. Lastnight he woke at 9.30pm and he didn’t calm down and go back to sleep until 11.15pm Then he was up again at 3am 😳and I was so tired that I got into bed with him 🙈 I know this is probably some sort of delayed reaction to Alfie (who he loves) and him wanting some time with me alone - but I’d rather it wasn’t 3am 🙄 According to Google it also seems to be phase they go through as they turn three. The thing is, I NEED my evenings to do everything I can’t get done in the day with a newborn attached to me. And I want to nip it in the bud before it becomes a thing. Bribery isn’t working. Being calm and understanding isn’t working. Any suggestions on how to stop him waking? I’m finding it really hard to balance being both compassionate and strict 😴😴😴😴[#ThisIsMothership #Tired #Sleep #Toddler]

Hahahahahaha. Just us?! 🙈🤷🏻‍♀️ [#ThisIsMothership #InstaQuote #Parenting #QOTD]

This week I'll be sharing some party game ideas.... What party games were your favourite when you were younger?
Today's is: The Chocolate Game
Suitable for ages 5 and up, this game causes an enormous amount of excitement! Children sit around a board with an unwrapped large bar of chocolate. They then take turns rolling a dice until someone rolls 6. As soon as a child rolls 6 then have to put on a hat, scarf, gloves that you’ve set out, and begin cutting and eating the chocolate using a knife and fork. The other children continue rolling the dice, and the moment another child rolls 6 the previous ‘eater’ must stop, and it’s the new child’s turn to dress up and continue. This game is hilarious!

Hahahahahaha. Just us?! 🙈🤷🏻‍♀️ [#ThisIsMothership #InstaQuote #Parenting #QOTD]

We made it! Just about 🙈And we did what all jet-lagged parents who are desperate for peace and quiet on day 1 of a holiday do: Go to Dollarama and spend $20 on 20 new toys 👍🏻🤦🏻‍♀✌🏻💃🏼🤩 The flight wasn't that much fun, we took off at 5pm and neither kid slept until 10pm 🙈 We used both kids' change of clothes within the first hour (💩🤦🏻‍♀) and Breegs and I managed to get a good ole' 45 minute nap during the 8 hour flight 👍🏻But we are here to celebrate my Grandma turning 90 years old and seeing her with Ace and Belle is magic 💕 It's all about making memories and I'll always remember my trip to Canada being about spending my Grandma's 90th with her, and after next week I won't even remember the grim flight 💕 [#ThisIsMothership #memories #toronto]

Oh hi. How would you like to get your glow back? ✨💫Yep, we thought so. Join us, Alfie and Ace (babies welcome of course!) to discuss all things mumhood and moisturiser. We're hosting a morning at the @LaMer Pop-up in London on Thursday 19th April to share how we make it work running a business with FOUR small children 💪🏻 We’ll also be showing you that making time for yourself by adding a few little luxuries into your day will make all the difference (it's not all £££ we promise). And you’ll get the opportunity to find out which one of their 5 legendary moisturisers suits you best and take away a weeks worth tailored to your skin 💃🏻To book email Talks@cremedelamer.co.uk specifying which slot you'd prefer (10am or 11am) with THIS IS MOTHERSHIP in the subject. Oh yeah, and it's FREE! Free Creme de la Mer ✌🏻 Don't say we don't spoil you! [ #ThisIsMothership #LaMerAmbassador #ad #LoveLaMer]

Hands up if you've noticed more lines and wrinkles since becoming a mum. We absolutely have. We've been looking back at pictures of us when we first started @thisismothership and we looked so young and fresh WAH! Now, we are all about the positivity and we know that we've earned every one of those lines - be it by laughing with the toddlers or 3am cuddles with the babes which we’re nothing but proud of - but we'd like to look a little less tired 🙏🏻 So we’ve been working with @No7UK on something new and extremely exciting, but incredibly top secret (for now)… Keep following our stories and all will be revealed soon. [#No7Ready #ThisIsMothership #tired #ad #serum] 📸 by @sophieyershonphotography

Although you see our faces in these small squares very often, and we give you a glimpse into our lives, we don't tend to get too deep as there seems to be a level of oversharing that neither of us feel comfortable with. But today, I wanted to over share in the hope that it will help one of you 💙

The other man in Belle's life (apart from her lover Leo) is her cousin Theo. He is my older sisters son and they are as thick as thieves 💕 But there was a time when my sister Louisa (@theo_and_I) didn't think she would ever have kids. She's suffered from depression most of her life - so severe that she thought she wouldn't be able to cope if she became a mum, and at one stage we almost lost her. But then she got help that actually helped her. Click the link in our bio to read her story. I'm oversharing today because I now realise just how powerful social media is and if this story helps one of you not to feel so alone then that is totally brilliant.
I promise the superficial fashion, beauty and moany mum chat will resume shortly ✌ [#ThisIsMothership #MentalMutha #starttheconversation #mentalhealth]
