I learnt so much from the blogger conference Mom 2.0. The summit officially kicked off with a keynote conversation between actress and producer Julianna Margulies, well known for her leading roles in ER and The Good Wife, and Dove’s #realbeauty Ambassador Jess Weiner. Hearing two incredible and down-to-earth women speak helped to wash away my jet-lag. Here’s seven things I learnt from Julianna that morning… Continue reading
There are few things that GEM mean to me and my family. GEM is an abbreviation for gemstone. If I were to flick through the Sunita-cyclopedia I’m sure it says something that is strong, sparkly and precious. Sometimes I find myself saying to others “You’re a gem”. It means someone who is so supportive and just fabulous. I always feel grateful for everyone’s help and encouragement.
It’s very easy to not feel good enough for this or good enough for that. Self-doubt is a common feeling even for the most positive and confident people around us. I first came across Yvonne and her amazing work on Instagram. We started chatting through comments on each others’ InstaFeeds and through our lovely mutual connections on Instagram. You probably know that I’m a fan of bright colours and how important they are in my everyday life. Yvonne’s InstaPics always brighten up my day. Her comments are real, human but also glow with encouragement and positivity. Continue reading
Hello, hope your week is going OK. I recently came across Raising Women on Instagram. Initially I thought this was something about bringing up your daughters. The tag line on the profile explained that Raising Women is “A connected and supportive community helping women balance motherhood with becoming who they were meant to be”. I was intrigued.
A lot of what I love about Instagram is about how you can find support and inspiration from other Insta-communities and individuals you may not have the chance to meet in everyday life. These people aren’t celebrities or anything, they’re just people getting on with the ups and downs of life like us.
I first came across Mama Squad on Instagram. It’s a community set up by the lovely Donna. It’s all about celebrating mamas and supporting each other. Donna organised The Mama Squad Assemble so ladies could hang out, enjoy some me-treat time, learn about stuff and go home with a bit of inspiration. Even better as Mama Squad Assemble featured a talk by Grace Timothy of Mum Face. Grace has worked in the beauty journalism business for over 10 years including a role as Contributing Beauty Editor at Glamour. Yep, she really does know her stuff when it comes to looking good and more importantly feeling good.
Taking an afternoon off as mummy can feel like a big thing. When you have time to yourself, you feel like doing something worthwhile. Want to hear more about what we got up to? Here’s seven things I loved about the Mama Squad Assemble… Continue reading
