So much to do, so little time 🤪🤪🤪 It’s amazing how one little human can impact your life so much! I struggle to get things done thanks to this curious little munchkin 🙈 She’s into everything!! I’ve been wearing this @aramintajames linen jumpsuit on repeat! Perfect for trying to keep up with Isabella! ❤️
Trying on outfits for a family get together on Monday 💃🏼 think I’ve found the one ... ? Makes a change from the loungewear, hey? I did have a pair of heels on but they were flung off across the room after them being on my feet for no longer then 0.5 seconds. OUCH ! I may just have to ditch them and go in my slippers 🤷🏼♀️
I think one of my favourite parts of having kids is watching them experience all of your own favourite things, one of my favourite things with Aaron and now with the kids is to grab a $1 slurpee, pile in the car and just go somewhere fun for the morning whether it be the beach, movie world or even just the park 😍
What’s your favourite thing to do with your kids??

How do I make money posting on Instagram?
Checkout my highlights under “what I do”. I can’t believe how easy it is making a second income around my children whilst on MAT leave!
My New Years resolution was to exercise every day for at least half an hour and to go to the gym at least 3 times per week. It was also to be less stressed and more mindful. Well I’ve been to the gym about 3 times THIS YEAR and today my to do list includes working 8:30am - 5:30pm, completing an assignment that is due Thursday, sorting something out for dinner, bedtime routine (at least I can tick morning routine off my list ✔️) and finding some time to “chill out” in between it all. Give me all the coffee.
I suck at resolutions.

I thought I was doing this for the mums, but after last weekends shoots, I've realised I'm doing it for the children too...
When I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2016, my first thought was to my sweet, sensitive daughter, Lena. Only 8 years old at the time. Whilst we were waiting to find out what stage the cancer was at, one of the thoughts that kept bothering me, was what memories would I leave her with if the cancer was advanced?
When she was a baby I started a notebook for her and added notes about her as she grew up. The funny things she said or did, names she had for things or people – things like that. Once I got an iPhone and selfies became a thing - I took lots of selfies of us, mostly saved on my phone and stored in the cloud. But these were all poor quality and tbh felt a bit soulless just posing into a camera lens. I’ve come to realise through photography, that candid images of mums with their children feel the most powerful to me. The emotions captured, showing the enormous love for the little person you created. This person who is totally dependent on you and your constant love for them. This feeling resonates with me and although the majority thankfully aren’t faced with a life threatening illness. Creating these memories for our little ones is another way we show our love for them. I really believe these family images form part of their heritage. Something to hand down to their children one day.

Getting ready to ride to the pool again today and finally captured the most annoying thing Zion has started to do! He keeps pulling the straps to my bathers off 😑
Also! When did everyone's kids start to swim on their own?? Wanting Zion to become more confident in the water but also being an overly protective mumma...

Throw back to this super fun day back in October 🐊
|| SENSORY PLAYTRAY || we love a good sensory playtray! Great for days when the weather isn't great and we are going stir crazy in the house.
For this one I used the green rice and lentils I had from a previous activity, an egg carton, some wooden shapes (these came from a clock puzzle from @kmartaus ), our fine motor set from @thecreativetoyshop and our mini scoop and bamboo tongs from @thrivingmindseducation.
If you saw my stories yesterday, Lorelei made this into a transferring activity - her absoloute favourite at the moment. Open ended activities like this are so great for children to fully explore and use their creativity - and so much learning happens in the process!
We are always looking for new sensory playtray ideas - tag me in yours, or let me know any good accounts to follow for ideas ⬇️⬇️⬇️

Not a bad Monday when my to do list includes working out, spending time with my hubby on his day off, tackling an inbox full of women who are ready to change their lives, checking in with my current boot campers who are straight up killing their goals, and giving myself a pedicure well being surrounded by furry and super adorable co-workers.
Case of the Mondays? Nah! We don't mess around with those around here. .
If you're not obsessed with Mondays, maybe now's the time to make a change. I just kicked off a new coach mentorship and virtual bootcamp both which I'd love to get you plugged into so you can look forward to Monday's too! All you got to do is shoot me a message. 📲

I love autumn 🧡
I particularly love the colours, the leaves, the smells (yes autumn has a smell) and the weather! Autumn is my favourite time of the year. I’m particularly excited this year because we are almost one season closer to wedding time! - wedding planning with a little babe is proving to have its challenges but organisation is definitely key; hoping all my sanity stays in tact! If you have any wedding organisation/planning tips feel free to share #autumn #weddingplanning #zanderskinner
“To escape criticism: do nothing, say nothing, be nothing.”
~ Elbert Hubbard
Of course, then you open yourself up to criticism for doing nothing! 🧐
So what if it’s about choosing what you get criticised for? 🤔
If you’re going to #risk criticism either way, why not do the thing you #love . The thing that feels right for you. And do it in a way that you’re happy with. 🤗
If you like striving for as good as you can, do that.
If you like just getting the job done, do that. .
That way, you have the #freedom to #learn . 🕊
If you’re caught doing things so others don’t criticise them, it’s like trying to learn someone else’s lesson for them. .
We all have lessons to learn.

When my friends without kids ask me to come to dinner and ‘just bring him/her it’ll be fine’ .....uhhh I’d rather not put all of us through that pain 😂
Mumming in the mornings is getting more and more difficult! Since starting daycare I literally can't pee without Hayden at my feet which makes getting ready for work and daycare very....interesting 🤣🤣. What a juggling act us mums have to perform on the daily!!! What do your mornings look like? Xx
