I’ve broken the rules!

By Minimalist
They all say if you haven’t worn it in the last 3-6 months, it’s got to go. Get rid of it. That’s proper wardrobe decluttering. Proper minimalism. Until this moment, I haven’t worn this outfit in 25 years.  SHOCK HORROR! I’m 49. It’s pretty easy math. But, I love it. I absolutely love it. Still. It reminds me of awesome fun times in my 20’s. Clubs. Parties. Dancing. Fabulous friends. Plus, it's Wheels & Dollbaby,…

Have I failed?

By Minimalist, Self Love
Six weeks ago I got kicked by a horse. Hard. I was unsure if I’d seriously damaged my leg - especially my reconstructed knee. A few weeks later, after taking it especially carefully, I had a big fall off one too.  The pain has been immense. And pain has a funny way of clouding our minds, our energy. Of course, I did what most of us do and kept gently moving forward. My family needed…

Meet our new baby!

By Hiddy and Co Horses, Self Love
I realise it’s easier to say ‘trust the timing of life’ than it is to actually 'do’ ... when life’s happening around us and especially when shits flying all over the place! Am I right? Or am I right? Last week, I shared with you that I suddenly lost my beloved 🐴 Monte a year ago and that this is something I haven’t been ready or able to share publicly, until now. I guess because,…

Menopause. It’s a profound transition.

By Busy Mums Slow Down™ Steps To Success
The discussion surrounding menopause often arises in the late 40s and early 50s for most women, but I firmly believe that awareness should begin much much earlier, in our 30s or even before that. As women, we carry numerous responsibilities and face countless challenges throughout our lives. From pursuing careers to navigating the joys and complexities of motherhood, we often find ourselves stretched thin, juggling multiple roles and priorities. However, amongst the hustle and bustle…

This simple shift could change everything.

By Busy Mums Slow Down™ Steps To Success
Hey there beautiful. Today, I want to share a little snippet from my life that often comes up – a moment that profoundly teaches me every single time, about the power of choice and the freedom we have to shape our lives. It’s been really hot where I live and often, the idea of saddling up and working 3 of my horses sometimes seems like a daunting task. One that I could easily put off.…

I am not enough.

By Busy Mums Slow Down™ Steps To Success
Hey there busy lady! I know that each day, you're often exhausted but feel lazy when you rest. In fact, when you rest, you think you should be doing something more productive, don’t you?

I also know that oftentimes…

Why do we do it? It’s concerning.

By Busy Mums Slow Down™ Steps To Success
Welcome to my little kitchen in my little house that I absolutely adore! You know, it wasn’t that long ago when I thought that the idea of being a homeowner again was ever going to be possible for me. I had no money. No job. I was so run down and unhealthy. Basic survival was my focus. For all of that though, I am so grateful, because I have learned so much and personally developed…

Is it time to look at gift giving in a different way?

By Busy Mums Slow Down™ Kickstart Guide
Maybe it’s time to look at gift giving in a different way and create some Christmas traditions that really matter. Before you start calling me the Grinch and thinking I’m all “bah-humbug!” I have to tell you, I LOVE Christmas! But increasingly it’s becoming a time of excess and overwhelm. And there’s a lot of pressure.  Pressure to find the right gifts.  The biggest. The newest model. The most expensive. The old keeping up with…
