Transitioning into Autumn/Winter with Superbalist.com

*Sponsored When I think of autumn/winter seasons I usually think about over-sized knitwear and flowy dresses with tights and a cool hat to keep the ears warm. However I’m all about a really stylish boots or sneakers to pull an outfit together. I’ve partnered up with Superbalist.com to show you my picks of boots and sneakers that I would love to invest in this year. I’m definitely a mom on the go and I prefer footwear that is

How to stop self doubt

How to stop self doubt

I’m normally the first one to say that self-doubt has at some point or another crippled me into believing that I’m not good enough for anything good or successful or anyone that would love me. Crippled by the thought of never succeeding or finding love. Crippled by the thought of being alone. Crippled by feeling like my looks and body shape is not the best. But all that negative vibes are gone and I’ve come

How to survive maternity leave without going broke

It’s been 5 months since my baby was born, and about two months since returning back to the land of the working class. I received my first salary in February since my maternity leave ended and it was so nice to have a salary again after four months of none.

My thoughts on Co-Sleeping

My thoughts on Co-Sleeping

When I first became pregnant with the twins, I was adamant from the get go that the girls would be sleeping in their cots, in our room, but never with us in the bed. I read a lot about sleep training and what experiences other moms were going through with their kids who also by the way said that there was no way their kids were going to sleep in the bed with them either.

Dealing with my fussy baby

Dealing with my fussy baby

When I had the girls I found that daily life was quite easy because they were calm and chilled out kids to begin with. Tazkia was a little fussy but always the same time during the day and always for a short period of time. I just thought it was colic but I didn’t know enough about it and before I realised it the “colic” was over. So when Yameen was born, I thought that
