We did it! Everything about @nashfashweek 2020 was different, but despite a tornado, a global pandemic, ongoing social injustices and many other obstacles, we were able to offer Fashion Talks, three Learning Labs, showcase and support nineteen local designers and feature Shop Nashville events and promotions over five days through digital programming and social media and you showed up. Over 724 people registered for our virtual Zoom events and we had 6,874 unique Instagram Viewers with 132,160 impressions last week. We were also able to donate over 1,000 masks to @masksnowtn and they will be distributed where they are needed the most in our community. Thank you for your support and continuing to grow with us. As fun as it all looked, it was a lot of work to pivot, but we will continue to shift with the times. We hope to see you back on the runway next year. There's nothing like celebrating together in person! Special thanks to the @mtsu Academic Marketing and Communications team for producing all four of our Zoom Learning Lab programs. You can view them all on our website. Everyone that signed-in to these events were eligible to win All Access Passes to Nashville Fashion Week 2021 valued at $800. Congratulations to our lucky winner @industriesbest ! We encourage you to continue to shop our designers and support our Shop Nashville partners and sponsors. They need us now more than ever. Also, please consider making a donation to the Nashville Fashion Forward Fund of The @communityfoundationmidtn . Every dollar will make a difference in our fashion community for years to come. This is #whynfw !


“Life is playfulness…We need to play so that we can rediscover the magic all around us.” ~ Flora Colao We had a great weekend celebrating birthdays and having playdates. It was refreshing to play outside with friends & family. #cutekids #vegasbabies #Lasvegaskids #kidsofIG #OneTiredMama


Day 6 of 75 hard. I got all my boxes checked. I didn’t want to but I did. Pushing myself to be the best me. I split my burger into two meals and worked on a class for work. Hoping to get a goodnight sleep because the little ones aren’t feeling good which makes me 10x more tired. On the monitor is my husband who fell asleep in our 2 year olds room while putting him to bed. 😂😍 #fitgirlsguide #gotitdone #healthyish #onetiredmama

I can attest, as a mom of three, there is nothing more true than this statement! #onetiredmama 🥱

• 6 W e e k s • This week I left Bella with my mum for a few hours whilst I took the older 2 school shopping, and it honestly felt so alien to be able to do this! I’ve never had a bottle fed baby so young. (There was usually a baby attached to my boob 24/7!😅 ) surprisingly though, we were both fine with the separation and she was apparently good as gold for meema! ☺️ • She’s been a bit of a sicky baby this week, I’m unsure if it’s the weather, wind or something else causing it, but I’m getting her weighed on Monday to make sure she’s doing alright. 🥰 she handled the heat quite well I think, our living room keeps nice and cool which is a life saver (for all of us!😬 I can’t handle the heat well lol! ) • I’m slowly starting to weedle out the newborn and up to 1 month clothes from her wardrobe 😢 she’s getting quite long...I’m not sure where she gets it from 😂 but it’s exciting because she has some lovely outfits to wear 😍 • But I think the best bit of this week has been how Rubeon is starting to interact with Bella. 💜 I hope they become as close as Lily and William are. 🥰 •

⁣ 𝗧𝗵𝗲 𝗕𝗿𝗲𝗮𝘀𝘁𝗳𝗲𝗲𝗱𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗝𝗼𝘂𝗿𝗻𝗲𝘆 ⁣ ⁣ I’ve been wanting to post this for the last few weeks. Being that it’s now Breastfeeding Week, it seems that today is the time to do so! ⁣ ⁣ Each mothers breastfeeding journey is unique and individual as their babies are. ⁣ ⁣ I’ve been fortunate to breastfeed all my babies, both until they were 2 and half years. For those that follow me, you will know that I’ve just had my 3rd baby, George. ⁣ ⁣ Each breastfeeding experience has been different. I wouldn’t say that it has come easy for us - each one had had its own struggles. It’s taken time, patience, very sore nipples and the all frustrations that come with breast feeding all day and night. 🤱⁣ ⁣ This time round, which should of been the easiest, has been the toughest. It’s been such a steep learning curve for the both of us.⁣ ⁣ We are 3 weeks into our breastfeeding journey and my being it’s my 3rd pregnancy, my boobs have changed shape, I’ve suffered with painful encouragement and huge sore nipples. ⁣ Which has all led to difficult latching (especially when you have a 3 year old bouncing on the sofa next to you! ) but we are continuing ahead and each day it’s getting just that little bit easier and easier. 🤞⁣ ⁣ I want this post to be a message of hope and reassurance to mums, that despite this being my third baby, I’ve experienced all the same struggles as I did with my 1st (and 2nd ). ⁣ My message to you is: if you want to peruse with feeing, please don’t give up or feel disheartened if you still haven’t “got it”. ⁣ ⁣ From my experince it takes commitment and persistence to breastfeed (one which is hugely underestimated ) but I also know from experince, that once you have survived and come through all the initial struggles, breastfeeding can be so worth it. ❤️⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣

Some people say I’m conceded, some say I need to put clothes on, some say I’m a show off. But if truth be told I don’t like my body. It takes a lot to post a picture of me in a sports bra and shorty shorts. I’m becoming more confident ab my body and being in my own skin. But please, before you judge somebody, just know you don’t know the whole story. Thank you @jenny .parcher for helping me, pushing me and not letting me give up. You are truly a blessing to have. Thanks lady friend for being my rock. #yeaimamomoffive #momlife #momlifeisthebestlife #livingmybestlife #underconstruction #workingonme #fitmoms #fitmomsofig #dontjudgeme #workingonabetterme #doingitforme #healthylife #confidence #momofboth #workingmoms #onetiredmama #tiredmom #iwontgiveup #iwanttoinspireothers #consistency #womensupportingwomen #spreadlove #thankyoubestfriend #installingmuscles #momstrong #strongnotskinny #thestruggleisreal #thursdaymotivation #mood #littleeyesarewatching

#attachmentparenting 🤣 This has been my truth the last 10 days or so. Usually quite a healthy eater, vaccination side effects and a cold left my girl screaming down the house in the middle of the night quite some days in a row. 😢 Breaks my heart when you can’t help make her feel better, only be there and ride the wave with our little people. Unfortunately the late nights or lack of sleep did not impact on the early wake up so coffee was certainly helping me get through 😂 Onwards and upwards from here as she’s feeling better and this round is done... let’s get back to more veggies and fruit... #onetiredmama

Some days you need to be still. Some days you need to lift, run and sweat out your aggression. Some days, you need both. Listen to your body. Listen to your spirit. Take the time to take care of you 🙏🏼❤️

Everything is so intense at the moment. I feel exhausted but have the need to keep busy, worn out but my mind doesn’t stop... my emotions are just a bag of contradictions at the moment 😅 I’m finding being involuntarily a stay at home mum, hard. I long for some alone time or time to do something to keep my mind active around something other than the kids but I also am so grateful for this time I have with the kids. I think the most exhausting thing of this year is my mind 😅 Moments like the one pictured bring my day to a peaceful end. I’ll forever appreciate that my children spent so much time together this year, their bond is beautiful 💛 . . . #children #emotions #onetiredmama #mamafeels #gratitude #babyfeet #siblings #siblingbond #brotherandsister

“Some days she has no idea how she’ll do it - But every single day it gets done” . . . This is my motherhood and I wouldn’t change it for the world ✨For all those thinking about getting pregnant, pregnant or have just become a new mom - don’t let the thought of “How am I going to do it” consume your mind. Motherhood is all about learning as you go and adapting when you need to. There is no handbook or right or wrong way to being a mom - as long as your kids are safe, you are doing a good job✨Each child is different and no mother fully knows what the heck she is doing. You have to find your own path and not be afraid to ask for help when you need it🥰 . . . Becoming a mother is the best decision I have ever made in my life. Was I afraid? 💯 Did I know what I was doing? 🤣 Are some days hard and overwhelming?😣 Are some days fun and easy? 🥰 Each day of motherhood is different! You have no idea what the next day has in store for you - you just go to bed at night and pray that everything will be okay 👌 . . . #motherhood #onetiredmama #beingamom #fearsofmotherhood #staystrong #momssupportingmoms #ittakesavillage #raisingchildren #becomingamom #mymamahood #learnasigo #norightorwrong #loveyourchildren #keepthemsafe #youredoinggreat #motherhoodadvice #mynameismama #mygreatestloves

Time to head up to bed after a busy day... after a complaint from one of the managers in the office that me working from home isn’t working, I’m trying my best to show that it is! I swear some people were just put on this earth to test you... there is one certain person that I work with that does just that and unfortunately he is one of the managers! Anyway tomorrow is a new day and I’m hoping to start my revision after working late tonight... as long as that certain person doesn’t complain again! . . . #productiveday #timetosleep #bedtime #mygarden #gardenlights #gardenlife #workingfromhome #tryingmybest #onetiredmama

Some days all there is to do is have sleepy cuddles. 💕

Exhausted all the time? Here are 4 things that might be draining your energy. . Start weaning off the coffee or ditch it all together. If you are exhausted all of the time and relying on coffee all day to keep you going, this is part of your lack of energy problem! The over consumption of caffeine is taxing your adrenals. Start cutting back slowly if the thought of going cold turkey makes you cringe. . Check your sleep quality. Are you actually getting quality, sound sleep? Use a sleep app or wear a watch that can track your sleep patterns to see if you're really getting quality sleep. If you know that you don't sleep well, you stay up late or you have little ones that wake you up - then start working towards improving your sleep. Take naps during the day if you're up with the kids at night, put your phone away two hours before bed, read a few pages of a book instead of watching a show before bed, etc. . Pay attention to the foods you eat and how they make you feel. Does a sandwich and potato chips for lunch make you want to take a nap afterwards? Is it hard to focus? You'd be surprised at what a few food tweaks can do for your energy levels. . Manage your stress levels and feelings of anxiety & overwhelm. All of the above can leave you feeling depleted of energy. Find ways to calm your mind and get through those stressful moments. Not sure how to do that? I have a free training just for you on Tuesday, August 11th! . You will learn ways to manage stress & overwhelm in your life to allow you to have more energy for the things that are truly important to you. You will leave this training with practical and simple tips that you can implement right away. The training is hosted in my free Facebook group: The Wellness Project. Link in bio to join and a replay will be available. . 👇🏻Comment below if you're joining us!

🥳 MONDAY AGAIN!! 🥳 F**k me I am tiiiiiired today. It’s the kind of tired that a good nights sleep won’t solve, I feel tired in my soul 😔 A nice mixture of having a lock-down baby, a 3 year old to look after, a busy business to run and trying to be a decent mother/house wife is draining 😕 But I’m gonna pull my running trainers on pound it out in hope it releases some sort of happy hormone ☺️ Then whilst Fynn is busying himself playing I’ll dive into work for a bit. Then when they are both napping I’ll do a bit more work. Then they’ll wake and want feeding, entertaining, bathing, bedding, sleep 💤 Another day gone *poof* Or maybe I’ll just have an easy day and whack some films on 🎥 ☔️😎👏🏼 #squiffyprint #onetiredmama

Because I haven’t posted this sweet beautiful girl in awhile. She is literally the sweetest girl, however when it comes to sleep she just lacks in that department & girl can scream!!! I’ve been trying to figure out how I can get this girl to sleep through the night. I’ve tried the books, sleep sacks, sound machines, etc. Going to retry the Ferber method again this week & hopefully I’ll have better luck this time around & be able to stay strong, wish me luck. 😆 Any other suggestions!? #mamaneedssleep #motherhood #momlife #girlmama #onetiredmama #mamaneedsanap

MOTHERHOOD heaps of sleepless nights = exhaustion #onetiredmama

May 2020

Haven’t been posting much here in ig lately since I’ve been so uninspired& stuck in the house like probably pretty much everybody else in the world except our always cheery neighbors the swedes #blessthem ✌🏽☀️ (&the ones genuinely loving this situation ofc minus the corona I feel happy for you, I’m just not one of them definitely🥰 ) Also I’ve noticed I don’t like the fact that someone tells me what to do& not to do although it’s for the best& absolutely necessary in this crazy situation😏 But we’ll hang here! And I guess all the parents with more than one small kiddo at home 24/7 can agree that this is not the best time for creative self-development or any other lovely project you had in mind. Heck, even folding laundry is challenging atm! And I thought this would be easy for me since I’m stay at home mummy with my youngest but no, I’m still tired as hell now and can’t wait that the daycare officially “opens” in couple of weeks😄 I know maaaaany of you agree with me🙈 so today we did a little excursion& oh boy that was fun!! Road tripping, lunching take away outside in neighboring gorgeous city, visiting stunning manor house& shopping local food goodies such as flour, honey, organic meat& some micro brewery beer for hubby🙌🏽 ofc following all the social distancing rules& we barely saw other people. I feel like a new person now🧡 #coronalife #onetiredmama #roadtrip

Nine months of knowing this sweet soul. She’s always on the move, pulling up to stand & four teeth already!! Where is the time going!? However, she still doesn’t like to sleep through the night yet & yes I’ve read those books!! 🤪 #motherhood #girlmama #momlife #ninemonths #onetiredmama
