Overly honest, hopelessly clumsy mum of two boys (Harrison & Ruairidh) with a slight obsession with gin, shoes and beauty products who happens to be a bit of a hair/style chameleon. You won’t find her doing flatlays and super coordinated photos but her posts will always be relatable and real.

Mid 30s mum of two girls (Azalea & Sophia) who went from gaining a degree in Politics and Parliamentary Studies and setting her sights on becoming a top MP to finding a love for teaching after a life or death situation in the Boxing Day Tsunami changed her outlook on life.  She is often found in the kitchen crafting, baking or sneaking chocolates whilst the girls aren’t looking (arent we all?) or ranting about the state of the world to anyone who will listen and sympathise!
