My Week in Pics – Move Every Day

One of my favourite things about no longer being pregnant is being able to move my body properly every day. And that’s exactly what I did this week! Monday On Monday I carted the little dude to Balmoral for a stroll and a swim then on to Mosman for a session with my radical personal […]

Welcome-Back

Miss Me?

It’s a new year and a new me. Welcome back! Towards the end of last year, I was diagnosed with Post Natal Depression. It turns out that having a baby brings up aaaaaaaaall the old shit that you haven’t dealt with. So that sucked. Since then I’ve been on a bit of a soul-searching journey […]
