How are we 16 days in to January already..... being on school holiday makes you lose track of pretty much everything. So in saying that I had to start to looking at my year ahead! Here are some of the words that I will focus on in 2019 to help me elevate my business to the next level and help me grow as a person spiritually, physically and mentally they are Breathe - Manifest - Meditate - Elevate - Focus - Purpose - Grow and Create! Also I have chosen Balance as my oil of choice as it is a grounding blend that creates a sense of calm and well being!
What are your words for 2019? And have you chosen an oil to help you get through 2019?
Write yours below. ❤️❤️❤️❤️
Looking happy, if a bit shell shocked by being thrown in the deep end of the @bluechilligroup#stocklandstartups accelerator program. .
Really looking forward to working with all the great people involved and my group of 12 peers. Parachuute = Building better connected communities!

I’m so incredibly blessed to have a sister, but not just your average “sister” the best friend, inseparable type of sister👯
Bec Gear and I have always been close, even the years of hair pulling and scratching🤣, even while we lived on opposite sides of the world, we would and still do speak multiple times per day 😬. I am INCREDIBLY blessed to have two beautiful children and when I realised I couldn’t have anymore part of me was a little sad that Tilly wouldn’t get to experience the bond that only sisters know 🛍🎀💕. However when little Miss Ava came into our lives 2 years ago these two forged a bond that’s grown to be bloody special 👧🏻👧🏻. While Ava & Tilly are ready to rumble with their brothers (and are both tough as nails) there’s something so special about having a girl sidekick.
The years of sharing clothes, secrets and travel adventures are allll ahead of them. 💕💕💕
So this seemed like the perfect #10yearchallenge and #transformationtuesday even if it is hard to see.
A lot of great things have happened in 10 years.
I have so many great memories that I have created with the ones I love but when I look back 10 years there are hardly any pictures of me enjoying those times because I was constantly hiding and making sure I was in the background.
Who else can relate? * Holding the baby in front front of me to cover up 🙋♀️
* Hiding behind the kids or the birthday cake at birthdays 🙋♀️
* Dreading going to the pool with the kids 🙋♀️
* Too tired to run around with the kids 🙋♀️ Let me tell you I had every excuse in the book for why I was tired and overweight but couldn’t find the time to make my health a priority.
I had young kids (one that didn’t and still doesn’t sleep through the night), I work full time, hubby works and isn’t always around before and after work, I have asthma so get out of breath easily.......the list went on and on.
When I finally got down to it and took a good hard look I realized that it didn’t take me 30, 60 or 90 days to gain all that weight and get into the shape I was in so it certainly wasn’t going to be a quick fix.
I didn’t have all the answers and I tried all kinds of different ways to get healthy, some worked well for me and some not so much. I would stop and start but I would always lose the motivation even after I saw results. Because let’s face it, I was not naturally athletic and well working out is hard! And well for someone like me that eats when they are happy, when they are sad, to celebrate, to reward.....the nutrition part was the HARDEST!! Then I found the online accountability and the huge range of easily accessible workouts at my fingertips so that someone like me who gets easily bored doing the same thing can ditch the excuses! My tribe keeps me accountable because hey how can I show up for them if I don’t show up for myself? 🤷♀️ I by no means have this thing all figured out and it’s going to be a constant journey for me but I will continue to show up and support my tribe and I know they are here to do the same for me 💕

A throwback to some Christmas wrapping I did last month. I easily wrapped over 200 gifts for clients!

I'm not naturally gifted at cooking, so I generally follow recipes to the letter.⠀
Except when it comes to garlic. 😎😂⠀
One of the most effective ways to use your essential oils is to take them internally.
This is just a snippet of what you can mix up in a veggie cap!
I do have to say though, that not all essential oils can be taken internally and I can only speak on behalf of doTERRA's oils. Their oils have been quality tested to ensure that there is absolutely NOTHING in their bottles apart from what it says.
Plus some oils are a little pungent to the taste buds so this is a great way to bypass that process but still get the AWESOME benefits 😉
Becoming a mum is such an amazing gift but becoming a mum can also mean a loss of identity and not really knowing who you are anymore and what to expect for yourself. .
You go from doing everything for yourself to nothing for yourself and your sole focus goes to your child/children. You get an overwhelming feeling of guilt when you leave them. You are torn between going back to work and helping support your family and not wanting to miss any moment of them growing. This is the reality for alot of us mums. It is a tough gig but also the most rewarding. .
I know hands on how difficult these struggles can be and I have finally found a way that I have started to overcome some of them. I have now started to find who I am again. I have began to regain my own identity and have found a purpose in my life more then just looking after my small human. .
I now get to do things for me, I now get to travel and grow myself as a person, I now get help my family financially, I now get to be the best version of myself for my son. I am now working towards my dreams and the dream life I want for my family and that is all thanks to #mummasinbusiness. .
Without Mumma's in Business, I know I would not be where I am today and would not of had the courage to take control on my life and find myself again. I am surround by a community of other supportive and inspiring mums all with the vision of doing life on their terms and I am forever grateful. .
I truely have been blessed with a gift and I want to share it with all other mummas out there wanting more for themselves then just being a 'mum'. That want to start working on the life of their dreams and creating a life for their family that equals freedom in so many ways. .
I have opened up 2 spots to mentor some mummas who this resonates with, who are passionate about helping others and ready to be the happiest and best versions of themselves. .
❤ comment below for more information. Let us mummas do life together ✌😘
On December 30, JWA welcomed a new arrival. Adding to the excitement is the fact that he’s the first baby to be born under JWA’s new parental leave policy. ⠀
Based on research into best practice, it recognises the importance of parental support in the wider context of gender equity in architecture. It also draws on the pioneering work of @_parlour in investigating the different forms of ‘’accumulated disadvantage” that see 40 percent of female architectural graduates not being retained in the industry long-term. ⠀
Our new policy provides permanent employees, who have worked at JWA for two years, with 16 weeks of paid parental leave for the primary caregiver (in addition to the Government Paid Parental Leave Scheme). Secondary carers receive 2 weeks of paid parental leave. ⠀
Here’s to meaningful change in baby steps.
Anti aging results, speak for themselves 👏
Wrinkles and lines are refined around these target areas.
Nasal labial folds (from nose to mouth) and above the lip can become lax and very lined, areas like this we can deeply needle to stimulate collagen and soften the #lines#wrinkles and even the skins #pigmentation
Mimi was a few days old here. I remember that I felt so much pressure to do my hair and make up every day and act like I was absolutely fine and the happiest person in the world. I was far from fine, I was exhausted and my whole life just completely changed. I wondered if life would ever be normal again. I’m not sure if it goes back to normal or if it just becomes your normal, all I know is that the journey is hard work and can be the loneliest time. You can have the most supportive friends and family but you still somehow feel a bit alone. These negatives have the ability to completely change you and make you feel like you can’t cope. Becoming a mum somehow strips you of confidence, when in fact you should be ooozing with it! You’ve managed to grow a baby and then birth it and then look after it every minute of the day. You should feel like a super star... but you don’t, but you will again. Get up and do something for you. Be happy, motivated and successful and you will enjoy every single moment! #babyblues#motivation

I’ve felt so rough today 🤒 Really need to tackle bedtime with Jack too! We have got in the bad habit of having a back rub at bedtime, but now only with me!! Usually it does only take 10 minutes but I’ve never been good with letting him cry and I’m just too tired to try 💤 #losingbattle#tiredmama#kingjack
Island life.....I’m so desperate for the island not to be the immediate dumping ground as soon as we walk into the house, so I’m on a constant mission to keep it clutter-free (not always easy with a sink on the island, which is why we opted for two dishwashers....seems extravagant, but in my opinion so worth it!) I’ve also just realised that literally all my recent photos have been at night....only time we’re either not working or can actually keep the place looking vaguely tidy!!!
