Who else is a sufferer?
Mine is huge. It has been something I've had to face as early as I can remember as a little girl and it is very much me who suffers and thankfully not Lulu 🙏
I can remember having a terrible time letting go of my mum, not just as a little girl but even as a teenager. I always worried about anything and everything. Im not sure if I grew out of it, but the feelings disappeared for quite a while until Lulu was born.
Now my anxieties are separating from Lulu, my baby, my beautiful little girl who is growing up so quickly before my eyes! She is so independent and confident... so much like her daddy, but yet so tuned in to me and omg so full of love and understanding and such a compassionate little girl💗
Because of her recent car strike, in a way it has helped me to face my fears of leaving her a little bit. It's crazy how terrifying the feelings of driving away from her are, but little steps are big steps and in my heart I know of course she will be ok 👣
I really believe she is a gift to us, our little miracle and life is full of so many lessons. This one is my lesson. To be the best mummy I can be for her, the mummy she deserves and we will both be ok without eachother for an hour or two 💗

Tomorrow is the day, I’m for sure a little bit nervous but more than anything I’m really eager to chat with all of you coming to the @vancitywomensexpo and the three ladies on the panel about SELF WORTH!! Say it with me!! How important is your time in buisness to you? What are your priorities and number ones? How do you remind yourself that you need self love to? How do you let go of missing out on things and always feeling like you haveeee to say yes?
Just a teaser I guess. This has become so important to me and it should for you all as well. Your worth more than you think.
I heard a quote the other day “ Just because it’s easy to do, doesn’t mean it’s not valuable! “ Everything you do is value! Photo | @kailawrenphotography
Recently I hit a huge wall of total burnout. Burnout is beyond tired: it's at the point of total depletion where you have no patience left, no gas in the tank and everything just feels like sandpaper rubbing on your soul. 🌻 You get to the point where the idea of "self-care" feels like another item on the to-do list, and no matter how much rest you get or how many breaks you take, it never quite fills the well. 🌻Honestly, this picture is my one little triumph: I put on some clothes on a day where all I wanted to do was wear pajamas and wallow in bed. I picked something with a quirky happyish pattern because it gave me just a bit of a lift. I sometimes wish I could have a super-curated all neutrals minimalist style, but let's get real: I like prints A LOT and I get a lot of primal joy from them. So today I'm grateful to the designers and art makers who make prints, because sometimes they really do make you happier for a moment on a super crappy day!🌻 #mentalhealthawareness#ootd#ootdfashion#ootdstyle#ootdmagazine#outfitoftheday#wiw#wiwt#whatiworetoday#fashionblog#fashionblogger#styleblog#styleblogger#fashionover40#momstyle#momfashion#mommystyle#annagloverxhm
Question: Kids save their worst tantrums for their mom?! Yes or no?! 🤔
.... There are days like today, when I absolutely feel that way! ....
My mini had a serious case of mood swing and she ofcouse, like always, takes it on her mama! 🙄
I always used to wonder why?!
I sometimes used to feel guilty and wonder if it’s something that I should worry about!
But now, I just smile through it all!!😊
Well, I read somewhere, that “we moms, are their garbage disposal of unpleasant feelings and emotions”!! 😂
“We are their safe place! So just take it as a sign that they love you more & stop going bonkers about it! Let it pass and smile though!” #momlife#girlmom#momtogs

Denim and pink with my little one! 💕
We went to the mall to find shoes for Riley. Maybe some good walking shoes will motivate her to start walking 😂. This top is so soft and it’s on sale right now, making it under $20. Comes in other colors too! www.allthatsheloves.com/shop-instagram

Did you know that we are know for our hand picked jewelry pieces?
Any time I am buying for the shop I think.... would I buy that? When you look through the Daniels and Co jewelry collection, the more eccentric the pieces are those are probably my top favs.
Fall is officially here. Time to get all the cozy blankets and pillows out!
On the first day of Fall, I was actually impressed that Mother Nature cooperated and took the temperature down a bit! I love when the weather cools down and my little family can get cozy under blankets for movie night! I just don’t like sharing my snacks 🤣

So I recently learned the hard way that when you feed your two year old tacos for the first time, you probably shouldn’t let him eat as much as his heart desires (which is a lot). My husband and daughter left on a special father/daughter mini-vacay on Thursday, so it’s just been the boys and me here. I gave them tacos on Thursday night, and then spent 12am-3am that night taking care of my toddler who kept throwing it all up 😩😰😷 It was about as horrible as you would imagine, and neither of us got much sleep that night. Thankfully my little guy was back to normal the next day, but we were both sooo tired. I had dinner plans made with my sister and my friend that I did not want to cancel, so I put some concealer under my eyes (lol) and headed out. This is a photo of a mom who reeeaaalllly needed that night out. My exhaustion melted away and I just enjoyed the adult company and conversation. Sometimes you forget how therapeutic time with your girls can be and you let too much time pass between visits. So in addition to my lesson about tacos (take heed), I also learned that your girlfriends can make everything better. ❤️
My heels are @sam_edelman from @nordstromrack and were a bit of a splurge, but if there’s one thing I’ve learned to splurge on sometimes, it’s pumps (one word: blisters). Swipe 👈🏻 to get a better look at these beauties 😍
