6 money saving tips that I live by – What we changed to save more money.

I know it may seem a bit farfetched that I’m writing on a blog on how to save money. After all we did just move back to my parents (short term) after living out of home for 2 years. But, this wasn’t because we were struggling with money. I mean, money was tight but we worked with it. The reason we moved home was so we could speed up our saving process. So we could buy a house sooner and start popping out these babies! My partner is an apprentice and I’m a...
The shittest parts about being a teen mum.

The shittest parts about being a teen mum.

Okay, so maybe I should have named this blog the shittest parts about being a young mum. Because I’m sure it isn’t just teen mums who go through this. I know I still do and I’m no longer a ‘teen mum’. I often get asked if I miss my life before my daughter, which is a big fat NO. I know people find this hard to believe. Why would I rather change shitty nappies, go to parks instead of clubs and wake up early on weekends? When I could be out dancing, drinking...

Why i started blogging.

Why i started blogging.

Why did I start blogging? And why so late? Most mama bloggers start from pregnancy, or when their child was a new born. There were many reasons on why I didn’t start earlier, but really, they were all just excuses. I’m someone who is terrified of failing, so usually I won’t start something so that I can’t fail it! I know that sounds ridiculous, but since giving birth to Alayna I have always wanted to do better and be better for her. So I knew it was time to...
