Aargh - where did winter suddenly come from! (It's a rainy Tuesday today!) It's only May right! For this blog feature, I thought i'd write a little bit about my family and I! Reasons being - my husband and I just celebrated 11 years since our first date (And just realized that next year we are celebrating our 10 year wedding anniversary... wow, we moved quick!!) And our little man turned 4!
I know sometimes it's hard being a mumma, and I actually don't often write posts about it... but our guy is such a cruise, I thought i'd share how my life is easy with a child!
+ I can multi-task like a boss! Half hour before we have to leave for school, I shower, fill bath while I dress, throw some cereal + fruit on a plate, place it in bathroom with the iPad - and he will stumble out of bed when he hears it.... Bath, Cartoons + Breakfast at the same time - winning!
+ I have just found that this works well for dinner time too.
+ He plays way to much video games and watches way to much iPad. But, he wants to be a YouTuber when he grows up (Thanks FGTEEV) - so I figure I am just guiding him towards his life ambition.
+ He goes to bed way too late (We've just implemented a 9pm "school night" bed time - before that, midnight was kinda the norm!) But he wakes up late, so we all get to have sleep ins.
+ He models my clothing for my kids range Little Mr Miss Tees - sometimes begrudgingly, but nothing that the promise of some candy doesn't fix!
+ We have found some aaa.maaazing places in the Swan Valley (Perth WA, right on my doorstep!) that have playgrounds for kids, and wine and cocktails for the adults! Again... winning!
+ So I have posted some pics below of the places that are great for catching up with girlfriends, and kids! Laughing Barrel + Mandoon Estate both have gated playgrounds (For those little runners), and Penny's Garden have children's play equipment they bring out, plus weekends a bouncy castle! (This may just be a summer thing)
+ In addition to that, if you are like myself and dread the thought of flying... don't forget to check out local resorts / hotels that have everything you would want in an overseas resort! My sister and I recently held a weekend "getaway" at the Swan Valley Oasis (Yes... an exhausting 10 minute drive!) to where they have a gorgeous hotel, pool, restaurants, parks, mini golf, super golf, a pub, and more! We had the best time, and spent the entire "last day" (Ok... the next day, still the last) by the pool - cocktails and lunch served poolside, and the kids had a ball. Totally going to make this a regular thing!
So you might have noticed a bit of changes to my site... kinda just wanted to make it more simple, more user friendly (And face it - easier for me to do! Since I can be pretty slack when it comes to blogging, I thought i'd make it more simple for me!) So now I just have this blog, a landing page for my films, and a page to shop my labels! (You can browse through the products, or directly purchase by clicking onto the buy now link, which will take you right to the City Stylist App Online Store product!)
If you saw the section for The Influencer's Closet - and you think you can be part of it, just head into it and register! This is a fun new initiative to get your designs on a tee, and make some dollar dollars from it! Well that about covers April / May! xx Lynnette
