We all know that there is a lot of hearsay about sex after childbirth; that you can wave goodbye to your sex life and forever more expect your partner to be too tired or your children to run in mid coitus. Sex is an important part of a relationship and with some helpful hints and tips hopefully it will not be as much of a cobwebbed entity and more of an exciting and flouring one.
We have all been there, Hands up who HASN’T suffered at the hands of sleep deprivation? Im sure there aren’t many! Learning how to cope with sleep deprivation can be another matter entirely. It is not easy to parent muddled and in a tired haze but we all do it nearly every day none the less; but what if I told you that with a bit of motivation you could push through and make your day a little easier and less like you are one of the walking dead?
After the amazing Utterly Feral’s instalment of #bloggybrides last week you should now have pretty much all you need to know to organise your big day… But as the fateful event of the ‘hen do’ looms and you think, what on earth shall I do? Well lets just say I had a pretty good idea of my perfect shindig on the smaller scale budget we had set for everyone (we had been invited to some pretty expensive hens and stags and decided that we didn’t want to put people in that awkward situation where they cannot afford it or get the time off work etc…) We agreed we would just do something relatively local… and for 24 hours. I had my heart set on a night out and then a spa afternoon the next day and started organising things when I was put to a sudden halt by one of my head bridesmaids; “WE will organise this for you…” Amazing. SO without further ado I invite you to be part of my gorgeous weekend… my ‘hen do’ adventures.
This is the firm reason I started blogging in the first place and the purpose of my blog if you will; affirming in all Mommas that you don’t have to let parenting take over your life. You are your own fabulous person and you and your child and everyone around you will be amazed to watch you flourish and rock this parenting shindig while letting yourself shine through. Don’t let the label ‘Mom’ or ‘Dad’ take over ‘YOU’.
*waves* So this is my first submission for the #bloggybrides massive. I was super excited when the amazing Clara over at Utterly Feral organised this clan after a joint thought process between four of us one night on Twitter. Naturally she launched the series, which will take place every Sunday and each one of us will post once per month, check out her amazingly gorgeous post ‘Bloggy Brides: Clara finds her engagement ring!’ and the Bloggy Bride debut here. I am psyched to write about all things Wedding as mine looms just two months away and today I wanted to share with you all how to get inventive and create your dream wedding on a budget by getting crafty.
So as you who follow me know I only started blogging about three months ago. I was totally unaware of what I was getting into, I just knew a few things; I love writing, I would love to be able to write for a living and I am passionate about Mamas not losing who they are. When I started blogging and plucked up the courage to send my first post in to the depths of the world wide web I was completely unaware of the community I had entered. As I began learning about linkies, Twitter chats, networks and conferences etc I was utterly blown away by the support and encouragement I was given every day. So this post is to say thank you to The Blogosphere.
I was so excited that November was here, as it meant that I could get my Rockin’ Mamas Gift Guide live for you lovely peeps to peruse, that I missed out on reflecting on one of my favourite Holiday seasons of all. I have always held a certain penchant for Halloween as I do love a good dress up session (no… Im not talking Ann Summers style!) Since I was a kid I have always loved fancy dress and one of my best friends was half Canadian so held the BEST Halloween parties!
