  • Fridays are for flowers & for happy dances because ya know, school hols are almost over! Don't get me wrong, I love having my boys at home but being so out of routine definitely spikes the anxiety & I'll be honest - my two fight like little savages 🙈😂

  • Trying to get out of my social media rut 🙈 when things are hard, as much as writing and posting helps me to articulate my feelings and discover my next steps.. it can take me a really long time to get my thoughts into words. When things are hard, I just don’t have any energy to put into writing. My ‘maximiser’ Gallup Strength puts too much pressure on me to create perfect content every time - not perfect for anyone else, but perfect and real for me. .
I know for sure I am not the only one who struggles with their content, so for anyone else there who’s in a rut.. take a deep breath and make the post.

Do you love kissing your baby?  Does wearing lippy stop you from doing it, or does it just stop you wearing lippy?

Of course you love kissing your baby...who doesn’t right!  It’s one of the many joys of being a mum, kissing that cute little person you’ve fallen in love with. 
So what about wearing lipstick, do you wear it AND kiss your baby?  I’m guessing most of you will say no. Usually wearing lipstick and kissing your baby are mutually exclusive. But you know, sometimes you just want to put a bit of lippy on when you’re a mum.  That bit of lippy helps you feel a little bit normal, and a little bit pretty, especially if you’re having a drab mum day. I know all about that. 
So allow me to introduce you to LIPSENSE.  LipSense Liquid Lip Colour is an amazing departure from conventional lipsticks and lip colors found on the market today.  It is the patented premium product for SeneGence, and is brand new in NZ. 
When I discovered LipSense, it was a total game changer for me. Not only could I now kiss my baby while wearing some lipstick, but I could eat and drink and not worry about it smudging or kissing off.  Plus there are so many gorgeous colours, I can wear a different colour every day of the month. 
Not only that, but I can also share LipSense with you, so you can not only kiss your baby too, but you can look great doing it!

If you want to try LipSense, message me or comment below for more information. Let me help you find your new favourite lipstick today!!! Trust me, you’ll love it too 💋

P.S.  I’m wearing Caramel Apple by LipSense in this video.

  • Postpartum hairloss has got me GOOD!! •
•
I wasn’t going to post this picture because I cannot believe how terrible my hair looks, it’s thin, frizzy and all different lengths and that person is totally different to who I used to be. •
•
I was the woman who always made sure my hair was tidy, freshly cut, freshly coloured. I have avoided having it cut since Mila was 2 months old. I am actually too embarrassed for a hairdresser to look at it.
•
But I’m not my hair and no way am I going to let this insecurity completely take over my life. If I do I will miss out on pictures like this... pictures of me holding Mila. I have actually been avoiding pictures of me holding for a good few months just because of my damn hair. •
•
My hair will grow back (one day) but in the time it’s growing so is Mila and that’s what I need to focus on. •

  • Testimonial Tuesday:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

When you're up all night as well it can certainly be a welcome relief to be able to sleep again! But, good sleep also makes us feel better, and I LOVE that this Mum also saw wake-time moods improve in her son. How much easier to parent when everyone is happy and healthy. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
"When I contacted you Kim, I was at my wit’s end. Even more than I let on I think. My 4 month old boy was waking all night long, every hour or so. It didn’t matter what we tried. I didn’t know who to believe or if what I was researching was right. I was so overwhelmed by then. I loved how you gave us a clear plan to follow and were there every step of the way to support us as we implemented it. I was shocked to find that we saw results IMMEDIATELY. Like on the second day. James started sleeping longer stretches overnight, and has continued to do so. We can now count on at least a 6 hour stretch every night, if not longer. Then he easily goes back down to sleep after a feed. He is no longer dependent on us to fall asleep. But the BEST part is the change I’ve seen in him during the time that he is AWAKE. He used to be a fussy baby. I would spend hours every day bouncing him, holding a dummy in his mouth, trying to calm him down and/or get him to go to sleep. Now, when he is awake he is so content. There’s NO FUSSING. His time awake is quality time, which has made us all so much happier. Kim is truly great at what she does. I am so happy that I went to her for help!”⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
