THAT MONDAY FEELING It dawned on me today how much I LOVE Mondays - although I actually deeply love everyday. Today so far my day has primarily revolved around ME and self care. Last week I didn't make it to the gym so today I prioritised me. I did my morning rituals, took mysef off to the gym (turned out I was the only one in class, clearly Monday morning training isn't for everyone 😂). Then I spent time in the sauna and ice baths. And THEN my work day began. As women, entrepreneurs, mothers & single mothers we all too often prioritise EVERYONE and EVERYTHING else before ourselves. In the short term this might play out ok, it might even feel 'good' for a while, but overtime it can wear thin. Before becoming a mumma I was reasonably ok at prioritising me, but all too often would fall into the trap of people pleasing (an all too common female trait) or simply trying to achieve EVERYTHING on my 'to do' list before I allowed myself ME time. Fast forward to being a single mumma to a nearly 5 month old and despite the huge pangs of guilt (mumma guilts are REAL) I am more capable now of prioritising me than ever before. You see, as the dictum goes 'put on your own oxygen mask first, before you help others' there's a reason they say that.. if you're flailing around unable to breathe, you're gonna be bugger all use to anyone. So now, when my sweet little girl sleeps for no more than an hour at a time during the night for 5 weeks, when she bites down hard as she pulls away on my nipples with those 2 adorable (but fierce) little teeth, when she is screaming in my ear.. I have the space, the clarity, the groundedness and love to breathe deeply and to truly know 'and this too shall pass'

Looking for the weekend like 👀 #weekendvibes #allthefeels #allthefun

Shout of to my sister @kaylynodonnell for letting me in on this blend! This #HerosAtHeart blend from Coffee Bean donates a portion of their proceeds to local charities servicing first responders and their families. This hits home for me, as last year my grandfather passed away. He was a veteran, former firefighter, and the first Hispanic station captain in Anaheim. Two of my uncles currently serve honorably for LAFD. This brews for the hero’s out there 👍🏼☕️ Thank you @thecoffeebean for giving back to those who give so much for us all.

B K N D ✨ . It’s hard to believe we will ever wear sweatshirts again, the weather has been hot for so long! But of course we will, and we have the last few sweatshirts in the sale ready for when you do, including the grey and white BKND sweatshirt Chloe is wearing on the left 😊 ____________ Here’s to another day of sunshine and being outdoors, and getting cars fixed that you accidentally reversed into a pole. Oh sorry, that’s just us with the car then 😐😂 . #bknd #smithwebb . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #allthefeels #mentalhealthcharity #mentalhealthaware #mentalhealthsupport #slogansweatshirt #smithwebb #bekindalways #bekindtoyourself #bekindtooneanother #bknd #mindcharity #smithwebb #friendship #itsokaynottobeokay #activewearfashion #womensactivewear #denimshorts #ootduk #summersweatshirt

Mama caught this #capture while I was having my morning #poonami 🙈She is doing something called #eliminationcommunication which means she watches and learns our cues for wees and poo 💩 and then whips our nappies off so we do it au natural. She makes different noises when we do it so eventually she will make the noise and we will do it on demand. They would have done similar in the old days before they brought in disposable nappies. You know these nappies work out expensive and go into landfill for thousands of years. Much better, she feels, that we start by doing it on a mat and then over a potty / toilet. It seems to be working quite well 👍🏻we wake her early morning and often give cues throughout the day because we don’t want to do it in our nappy, no baby wants to wee or poo 💩 themselves and then sit in it 😝 so maybe we are saving around 10 nappies or so a day currently 🧐 #happymonday ❤️🙌🏻

Oh I’ll never get over you until I start something new to get me high like you do . . #feels #nails #neon #blues #makeup #color #lashes #hoops #hood #allthefeels #lips #cheeks #face #hair #edgeslaid #edgesslayed
