My aim is to be humouristic and inspirational.

I want to leave moms with the feeling good about themselves and knowing they have my support.

What is your inspiration in life, style, work, hobbies?

I’m very blessed to be be able to do what I love that’s probably my biggest inspiration.

When it comes to style it really depends on my mood or responsibilities of the day. I love dressing up but love casual days with my boys.

I have turned my hobbies into working businesses and its great to have my passion become my income.

When you are not blogging, what do you do?

Being a mom of three boys I’m probably trying to go to the bathroom alone, making extra lunch, picking up half eaten fruit, preparing baby bottles, juggling my schedule or saying silent prayers.

What do you splurge on?

Shoes! I cannot get enough. I love online shopping. The excitement of not knowing exactly when it will arrive and getting this gift at my front door that I didn’t pay cash for, although I paid it feels like I didn’t as cash didn’t leave my wallet. I’m not sure how I feel so excited about it but I do.
