Not enough hours in the day with JORD wood watch

**[Gifted-Ad]: This beautiful watch was gifted to me by Jord. I feel very lucky and one of the amazing things about being a blogger, is getting to discover brands you’ve never heard of before. So, as always, I wouldn’t write about it if I didn’t genuinely love the brand and think you guys might like it too!**

If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll hear me talking a lot on my stories about time or lack thereof! As a working mum of two, I run my own businesses and therefore maternity leave this time round was non-existent. Instead, I was back to work with my 2-week old baby and he comes everywhere with me: to meetings, events and coffees. I wouldn’t have it any other way but I have never been so fixated on time as I am now, purely because, there just isn’t enough hours in the day!

A day in the life of me…

Being a “mumboss”, the juggle is real! I find I have to slip effortlessly from mum, to content creator, to CEO, to wife and back to mum again – sometimes all within the same hour!

An average week day for me looks like this:

Unisex Babywear – Matalan Baby

**[Gifted-Ad]: Matalan kindly gifted me some baby clothes, which I’ve decided to photograph and write about as I’ve shopped at Matalan for years, but didn’t realise they did such lovely baby clothes. So thought I’d share…**

When we had our daughter 3.5 years ago, we didn’t know whether we were having a boy or a girl and being the forward-thinking, progressive mother than I am, swore that I’d only dress my baby in unisex babywear either way. The whole pink/blue thing was old-fashioned to me. I myself, have never been a fan of pink clothes and I enjoyed picking out lots of grey, yellow and white unisex babywear.

Now obviously, when we had a girl, we were inundated with little dresses (often pink) and less gender-neutral baby attire. And of course we loved these just as much as the unisex items we’d chosen ourselves. I mean a little baby girl in a cute dress is just too much! However, of course our personal style comes through when we shop for our kids doesn’t it? I see myself as a feminine woman but not a “girly-girl” when it comes to my personal style – I love wearing dresses, but can mostly be found in jeans, jumpers and UGG boots/flats. So our daughter’s wardrobe probably reflected my own (and I love a bit of twinning!). There have been more than a few occasions where I purchased clothes for her thinking that our next baby would be able to wear them too, boy or girl.

Prosecco, Live Music and Banking – B Works, a Bank for Entrepreneurs

**[AD] I was sponsored to attend this event, but got sooooo much out of it and genuinely can’t wait to bank with B Works, so I hope this post is helpful for you guys too**

I often get invited to events as a blogger and some are better than others and in honesty, I’m so busy with work and family life now, that I really only go to ones that genuinely intrigue me or for brands/businesses I love. So I didn’t quite know what to make of my recent invite to B Works, a bank for entrepreneurs in Manchester…Continue reading
