Liam’s first birthday party ! I’m a bit late posting this but wanted to share- we had such a wonderful time celebrating with friends and family. We had a raspberry theme as they’re Liam’s fave thing to eat and look at this unbelievable cake made by @gaylecatherine87 - get the girl on @britishbakeoff! . I spent a lot of time over the last few days remembering the first hours spent with Liam. Where I was hardly able to move, had to ask a nurse to show me how to change his nappy, didn’t really know how to hold this tiny delicate precious little creature. It really does go by so quickly!! . . . #oneyearold #birthday #party #mums #greatbritishbakeoff #raspberries

1 today 🎉 19.05.19 HBD my sweet boy x
Rachel H-W
This time last year... . . I can’t get my head around the fact that a year ago, my wonderful little boy was gearing up to face the world! Russ took this pic of me in labour, which took 30+ hours and was eventful to say the least. There’s so much emphasis on the birth but really that’s the easy bit compared to the job of parenting! I can now say I’ve not had a properly good night’s sleep since Liam was born. I’m brimming with sentiment and emotion, already nostalgic for the excitement of having our newborn 😢💗 . . . #labour #birth #royalfreehospital

Here’s a mini poem I wrote on a ‘hike’ (it was a walk) in Los Angeles a couple of years ago... the freedom days pre-baby. I have no idea how I used to fill all that time other than wandering, writing poems and hunting down gf/df treats. Anyway, on this walk I found myself alone on the trail, looking over the valley in the fierce midday sun and felt the beginnings of Johnny Panic. I felt like prey, and had to steady myself by tapping into The Good. . . . #hike #wanderlust #Losangeles #safety #prayer #poetry #poem

16.05.2019... One year ago today was this one’s due date! He ended up arriving three days later. Last year when the evening of the 16th drew to a close, it was a bit of an anticlimax- it felt as though he’d not showed up for his own party. But now he’s here, beaming, busy, wilful and wild, I can’t remember life before him 💗 . . . #busybee #nearlyone #son #mumsofinsta

I know I know, you’ve seen the ‘girl walking in nature from the back’ shot a bazillion times before. I swear this wasn’t posed, if that helps. We went for a woodland wander among the bluebells today and nowhere makes me happier or feel more at ease than being in a forest. . . . Yesterday’s page in the 365 Tao book was about meditation and it struck a chord- I don’t know the rules about copyright so I’ll paraphrase- it said that just sitting still is a meditation. All the complex fancy apparatus that may come to mind, or things like the lotus position (ouch), setting up a ‘sacred space’ complete with Buddha statue and incense etc, may not be achievable. If you’re anything like me, you may feel that unless you can do minimum half an hour then you’ve failed at it. Actually, even two minutes is enough. It doesn’t have to be some grand event where you transcend the earthly plane, astrally project or even manage to ‘clear your mind’ (impossible!). It’s just about relaxing, calming, coming back to yourself and should be an extremely pleasant experience. Ps there’s loads of apps (a lot of them free) that help guide you in meditation, like @headspace, @calm, @themindfulnessapp and so on. Do something kind for yourself and take a few mins to return to your natural state x . . . #meditation #forest #bluebells #astralprojection #justkidding

A few more snaps from the other day... one magic moment where Liam looks content in my arms, the next where my affections are unwanted and lastly him resorting to violence. . . I joke, but this was actually one of the hardest lessons of motherhood - I thought it would be a non-stop love-fest, where my baby would love nothing more than endless cuddles- the reality is I have a very busy little boy who’s constantly on the go and keen to roam free. I struggled for a while, wondering if our bond wasn’t strong enough, if I was doing something wrong, if he just didn’t like me- etc. I’ll put a lot of this thinking down to being crazed with tiredness. It gets so much more rewarding the older he gets, and the laughs, smiles and our little ‘chats’ now are the light of my life. . . . #thisisparenthood #mumandson #parenting #mumsofinsta

Yesterday we went to another beautiful farm. I’m delighted to announce that I can now add peacock wrangler and hula master to my CV (!) It was too hot for tights and they clung thickly and stickily to my legs #thestruggleisreal but we had a wonderful time nonetheless. . My top is @hm, skirt is @urbanoutfitters and sunglasses are @lespecs. And boots are half cropped out but were #gifted by @blowfishmalibu 💗 . . #farm #tights #peacock #hula #family

This is one of my all time favourite books (and possessions!). It’s come with me wherever I’ve travelled. I love having a succinct and beautifully expressed spiritual take on different aspects of life to see me through each day of the year. I really recommend it! . . . #taoism #spiritualguidance #book

My sweet little boy bursts my heart with love and happiness! His laugh! 🥰 I think he’s going through a leap cos he’s learning all sorts of new tricks, which is fab but also means he’s up at 4am (not fab). . This @chicco_international baby walker is one of the best pieces of equipment going- it allows him to cruise around and be active while also staying safe! Hope everyone’s weekend makes them as happy as Liam is here :) x . . . #chicco #babywalker #happy #laughter #cute #babyboy #love #mumsofinsta #motherandson

The early days! Last summer was a scorcher. Liam was a couple of months old, relaxing with his Social Baby mobile and I didn’t know which way was up. I spent hours on the sofa, whether feeding him or taking the opportunity to rest- always with the trusty BWT water filter to hand as I was constantly so thirsty! I remember thinking that it would never get easier - but slowly things changed, Liam started feeding less and sleeping more. Now there’s all the fun of a very inquisitive and energetic little boy who’s into absolutely everything! . . . #tbt #earlydays #mumsofinsta #twomonthsold #stayhydrated #thisisparenthood

Helicopter parent. . I’m trying to find the balance between allowing my boy to explore the world and test his strength while preventing him from shoving chokable items into his mouth or throwing himself headfirst off the sofa. . He’s rapidly evolving from a baby into a toddler, which I can’t quite get my head around. I don’t think there’s enough caffeine/sugar in the world to find the energy to keep up! . . . #baby #toddler #shadow #firststeps #exhausted #mumandson #mumsofinsta

I really love living out of London. It’s fun to dip in and visit the city but having more space, clean air and a little garden is fantastic! Turns out all the cliches are true. I really enjoy doing the weeding, possibly over enthusiastically and accidentally pulling up the odd plant, but find it to be very therapeutic and quite a handy metaphor for mental wellbeing! . . . #bankholiday #garden #countryside #happy

The last time I saw Beau, I was single and had dreams of moving to San Francisco and being a poet. I’m not sure how well that would have worked out. Now, just over two years later, I have a wonderful husband, a beautiful son and a life beyond my wildest dreams. I wonder what the next two years have in store!? . . . #friendship #happy #weekend

BEES! 🐝 . . Bees are great- they pollinate a substantial amount of our plants and crops, so we depend on them being around. These days, they’re in short supply and overall need a bit of TLC. I heard that if you see a one who looks dead/dying, it may just be in need of some sugar. This guy was on his back on my windowsill, legs in the air, and I thought - not a problem, I got this. So I procured some sugar water, flipped him over carefully and led him to it. I felt pretty smug when I watched him suck some up and begin to get some of his old sass back. That is, until I did a bit of Google research, and was sickened to read that bees must only be given white sugar as brown sugar (what I’d given him) can cause bee dysentery. Great. I’d felt like David Attenborough, but my ego swiftly deflated when I realised this poor guy would likely come to a miserable undignified end. I wanted to share this so no one else makes the same mistake! . . . #bees #savethebees #sugar #sugarwater #demerera #disaster

For me, the hardest bit of going for a run is putting my trainers on. Not literally 🤦‍♀️- I mean, once they’re on, I’m committed to actually doing it rather than loitering and talking about it until I decide I’m too tired. . Currently I go for a speedy run/gentle jog (same thing) once or twice a week, and it helps me so much with mood, sleep and general well-being. And I always feel better after. Headphones essential. (Are you the same?) . My trainers are @nike , leggings are @sweatybetty, top is @hm and all important sports bra (especially post partum!) is @nikewomen. . . . #nike #sweatybetty #handm #run #jog #postpartum #fitness #health

Had such a beautiful wander among the bluebells with the boys. Here’s a sweet moment punctuated by some truly ear splitting screaming as a result of teething (I think). He’s 8 down, 12 to go. I wouldn’t say I’m wishing the time away- just quite looking forward to them all being through! (All I can hear is Louis Walsh going ‘good news- you’re all true’) . . I’m really into wearing yellow atm, and this @topshop jumper is the perfect blend of bright sunny colour but cosy enough for cooler days. The black skinny jeans are also Topshop, and apparently ‘only for the fashion brave’, which is me all bloody day. . . #teething #earsringing #bluebells #topshop #blonde #fashion #fashionblogger #blonde

Skincare! . . I feel very fortunate to have skin that doesn’t break out too often, but is definitely on the dry side- it needs a bit of tlc! As do my under-eyes as I think I’ve mentioned before- the raccoon look has become my default since having a baby. I’ve been using the #Emulsioncosmetics eye cream to tackle this, (which contains caffeine as well as green tea extracts to supercharge the skin!) and face cream, both very kindly #gifted, which is fab cos you can change the scent depending on what you fancy. . . To top it off, I’ve spritzed myself with their gorgeous Oud body mist (again, #gifted)- I feel refreshed, deliciously musky and ready for the week ahead! . . . #blendinstandout

🦷 Don’t skip your tooth brushing! It’s so important to keep up good habits to avoid problems later on, such as shelling out big time to the dentist to fix you up 😬 We use @colgate toothpaste on our @oralb brushes twice a day, and a baby friendly version for Liam. Do you guys have a preference? . . . #teeth #toothpaste #smile #family

Back to normal after a beautiful relaxing long weekend! We left Oxford this morning and visited @bicestervillage, bought nothing except some chocolate covered corncakes from @pretamangeruk. Not really feeling the whole ‘back to school’ thing tbh. . Wearing my @apc_paris coat here which I’m gonna need over the next few days 😩🌧 . . #oxford #bicestervillage #apc #tuesday

Oxford! . . We’ve spent the bank holiday in Oxford, which is obscenely picturesque at every turn. Went to the oldest coffee shop in Europe, peeked at the university campuses, saw dinosaur skeletons in the natural history museum, had a picnic and walked along the river, past the punters. We’re cream crackered, but what a beautiful place! . Wearing a @zara t-shirt, Marian + Maral dress, @pumawomen trainers. And Russ’s @apc_paris hoodie in the second pic 🙂 .

Happy Easter ! . . I love how many dairy free options there are these days! This @moo_free_chocolates Easter Egg is hitting the spot 👌🏻 When we were kids, all my chocolate would disappear within the hour but my brother @_pjhw_ would squirrel his away in his room, only for them to go stale six months down the line. I never understood it. Are you the type to eat everything on the day or to save it for later? . . #easter #eastersunday #dairyfree #easteregg #chocolate #purple #sugarhigh

Easter Saturday! . . I made a Simnel Cake (gf/df) using Doves Farm @freeefoods flour as a traditional Easter treat. It’s delicious. And definitely the easiest gluten free flour to bake with. And we went out to enjoy the beautiful weather and for me to worry constantly about the mix of the sun and my son. We kept him out of it, I managed to obtain some freckles and everyone went home happy. . . Btw my top is from @hm . . . #easter #simnelcake #sun #yellow #sun #saturday #family

This time last year... . . Getting some sun at 8 months pregnant. I was quite stressed about getting everything sorted before the baby came although had no idea really what to expect. Today I’ve spent time in the park with my perfect little 11 month old (as of tomorrow!) and feel so happy and lucky. He’s a really nice guy. . . Now I need to update my summer wardrobe as all my stuff from last year is maternity wear... this is a @calvinklein bra and a @zara skirt all bunched up 😂 what’s everyone into for the new season? . . . #tbt #throwbackthursday #spring #sunshine #summerwardrobe #happy #grateful #maternity #pregnant #8monthspregnant #eightmonths #mumtobe #mumsofinstagram

Who else is loving the sunshine? ☀️ I love being outside, not cooped up and trying to find new exciting places to take Liam so he doesn’t get cabin fever! Watching him exploring the park is my new favourite thing 🥰 . . I thought I’d share my day to day makeup routine with you. Let’s be honest, if I’m not seeing anyone all day I don’t wear any, but today is a social one, so, here it is- drab to fab in under two minutes. Cos I’m all about a quick fix. 1. @miildmakeup brush and Mineral Blusher- to liven my otherwise corpse level paleness (both #gifted) 2. @bobbibrown Smokey Eye Mascara in black- so people don’t mistake me for Liam’s sister 3. @barrymcosmetics Eye Define Liquid Eyeliner in Cocoa- (see above) 4. @clinique Under Eye Concealer in 02- to eradicate the humungous dark circles from 11 months of sleep deprivation.

9pm . . I’m going to bed! My days start so early that the thought of a late night is no bueno. I’m too lazy to have lengthy beauty routines, but I’m all about taking makeup off before going to sleep and moisturising. I’m using Hydrapuff for both which I was kindly #gifted- so I only need a tiny bit of product, as it absorbs so well. It gets a gold ⭐️ for the environment too as it’s biodegradable and cruelty free, and all the packaging is recyclable. Night everyone!

Dark circles! . . I want to start sharing my day-to-day with you guys on here, as well as the highlights - so here’s me looking serious/ actually just very tired as Liam causes mayhem in the background. . When I was 14, a makeup artist used #Clinique under-eye concealer on me and I’ve used it every day since then. It’s my absolute go-to especially now given that I have permanent hollowed-out mum eyes unless I get this stuff on! I love it cos you don’t even have to bother with foundation, it just blends in to your skin, and lasts all day. Being very naive when it comes to makeup, I just smear it in using my finger. But hey, it works! What are some of your favourite concealers? It’d be hard for me to break up with this one, but I’m open to ideas 😊 . . . #clinique #makeup #glowup #undereye #makeuptutorial #beauty #darkcircles #permanantlytired #mumsofinstagram

Also I had a shopping day yesterday with Liam and got the top in @topshop. . Ps. I’m considering getting some Billie Eilish merch like a hoodie or something, I’m 28- would that be classed as tragic, mutton dressed as lamb, or is it legit to ship her and let the world know? . . . #vegan #glutenfree #cookies #paleo #delicious #topshop #billieeilish #fandom #stan

Monday morning! ☀️ . I’ll pretend that the forecast isn’t rain for this afternoon and the rest of the week 🤦‍♀️ It’s so nice to sit outside with a coffee and not need to be wearing a million layers... living in the countryside I’m finally realising my dream of wearing a frock and boots, pretending to be Sienna Miller or Kiera Knightley in ‘The Edge Of Love’. . I love these boots so much, they’re @BlowfishMalibu (bringing a bit of California glam to Northamptonshire!) They go with anything (I’ve been wearing them everyday since I they were very kindly #gifted to me last week) and are such a fab, affordable brand of footwear. Hope you’re all off to a flyer for the week ahead! Xxx . . . #blowfishshoes #blowfishmalibu #california #boots #theedgeoflove #countryliving #countrystyle #sunshine #monday

Anxiety. . . . I noticed that in a lot of the comments on my last post, people mentioned they suffer or have suffered with anxiety. Having been there myself a lot through my life, my heart goes out to everyone who’s experienced it, as it can be truly debilitating. One positive is that the more people talk about how they feel, the less alone we are, and the less alien these things are to others. I wrote a poem about it a while ago and decided to share it on my new blog, www.likedotty.com. Hope you can take something from it :) lots of love xxx .

First driving lesson ! . I was soooo nervous today to do my first driving lesson in about six years (since I catastrophically failed a test 🤦‍♀️). I advised all my loved ones to lock themselves in their houses and stay off the roads. It turns out that learning out of London is a lot easier, and me and the instructor returned unscathed! .

My sweet boy and his wonderful friend Lottie! . It’s so great watching Liam with other kids. He’s such a playful energetic little boy that it’s essential for him to be active as much as possible! I got him this Adidas tracksuit for his first Christmas present, it’s for 9-12 months and he just fits it now. I think he likes it judging by that happy face! . . . #adidas #adidasbaby #tracksuit #baby #blue #happy #mumsofinsta #friends #trampoline #playtime

Happy Mother’s Day! . This was taken a few hours after Liam was born 💗 Becoming a mother has been the making of me. It’s so true that nothing can prepare you for how entirely different your world is once you have a baby. . I’m learning that while cute pics are nice highlights, the majority of the job is grafting- endlessly wiping down the high chair, changing nappies, laundry, getting him to sleep, playing with him even when I’m close to tears with tiredness. It’s not showing him how annoyed I am to be woken for the fifth time in a night, cos while it’s exhausting af for me, he’s a little boy who needs his mum. And my God do I love him. . . . #mothersday #sunday #mumsofinsta #motherandson #love #newborn #baby #babyboy

    My sweet little boy bursts my heart with love and happiness! His laugh! 🥰 I think he’s going through a leap cos he’s learning all sorts of new tricks, which is fab but also means he’s up at 4am (not fab). . This @chicco_international baby walker is one of the best pieces of equipment going- it allows him to cruise around and be active while also staying safe! Hope everyone’s weekend makes them as happy as Liam is here :) x . . . #chicco #babywalker #happy #laughter #cute #babyboy #love #mumsofinsta #motherandson

    The early days! Last summer was a scorcher. Liam was a couple of months old, relaxing with his Social Baby mobile and I didn’t know which way was up. I spent hours on the sofa, whether feeding him or taking the opportunity to rest- always with the trusty BWT water filter to hand as I was constantly so thirsty! I remember thinking that it would never get easier - but slowly things changed, Liam started feeding less and sleeping more. Now there’s all the fun of a very inquisitive and energetic little boy who’s into absolutely everything! . . . #tbt #earlydays #mumsofinsta #twomonthsold #stayhydrated #thisisparenthood

    Helicopter parent. . I’m trying to find the balance between allowing my boy to explore the world and test his strength while preventing him from shoving chokable items into his mouth or throwing himself headfirst off the sofa. . He’s rapidly evolving from a baby into a toddler, which I can’t quite get my head around. I don’t think there’s enough caffeine/sugar in the world to find the energy to keep up! . . . #baby #toddler #shadow #firststeps #exhausted #mumandson #mumsofinsta

    I really love living out of London. It’s fun to dip in and visit the city but having more space, clean air and a little garden is fantastic! Turns out all the cliches are true. I really enjoy doing the weeding, possibly over enthusiastically and accidentally pulling up the odd plant, but find it to be very therapeutic and quite a handy metaphor for mental wellbeing! . . . #bankholiday #garden #countryside #happy

    The last time I saw Beau, I was single and had dreams of moving to San Francisco and being a poet. I’m not sure how well that would have worked out. Now, just over two years later, I have a wonderful husband, a beautiful son and a life beyond my wildest dreams. I wonder what the next two years have in store!? . . . #friendship #happy #weekend

    BEES! 🐝 . . Bees are great- they pollinate a substantial amount of our plants and crops, so we depend on them being around. These days, they’re in short supply and overall need a bit of TLC. I heard that if you see a one who looks dead/dying, it may just be in need of some sugar. This guy was on his back on my windowsill, legs in the air, and I thought - not a problem, I got this. So I procured some sugar water, flipped him over carefully and led him to it. I felt pretty smug when I watched him suck some up and begin to get some of his old sass back. That is, until I did a bit of Google research, and was sickened to read that bees must only be given white sugar as brown sugar (what I’d given him) can cause bee dysentery. Great. I’d felt like David Attenborough, but my ego swiftly deflated when I realised this poor guy would likely come to a miserable undignified end. I wanted to share this so no one else makes the same mistake! . . . #bees #savethebees #sugar #sugarwater #demerera #disaster

    For me, the hardest bit of going for a run is putting my trainers on. Not literally 🤦‍♀️- I mean, once they’re on, I’m committed to actually doing it rather than loitering and talking about it until I decide I’m too tired. . Currently I go for a speedy run/gentle jog (same thing) once or twice a week, and it helps me so much with mood, sleep and general well-being. And I always feel better after. Headphones essential. (Are you the same?) . My trainers are @nike , leggings are @sweatybetty, top is @hm and all important sports bra (especially post partum!) is @nikewomen. . . . #nike #sweatybetty #handm #run #jog #postpartum #fitness #health

    Had such a beautiful wander among the bluebells with the boys. Here’s a sweet moment punctuated by some truly ear splitting screaming as a result of teething (I think). He’s 8 down, 12 to go. I wouldn’t say I’m wishing the time away- just quite looking forward to them all being through! (All I can hear is Louis Walsh going ‘good news- you’re all true’) . . I’m really into wearing yellow atm, and this @topshop jumper is the perfect blend of bright sunny colour but cosy enough for cooler days. The black skinny jeans are also Topshop, and apparently ‘only for the fashion brave’, which is me all bloody day. . . #teething #earsringing #bluebells #topshop #blonde #fashion #fashionblogger #blonde

    Skincare! . . I feel very fortunate to have skin that doesn’t break out too often, but is definitely on the dry side- it needs a bit of tlc! As do my under-eyes as I think I’ve mentioned before- the raccoon look has become my default since having a baby. I’ve been using the #Emulsioncosmetics eye cream to tackle this, (which contains caffeine as well as green tea extracts to supercharge the skin!) and face cream, both very kindly #gifted, which is fab cos you can change the scent depending on what you fancy. . . To top it off, I’ve spritzed myself with their gorgeous Oud body mist (again, #gifted)- I feel refreshed, deliciously musky and ready for the week ahead! . . . #blendinstandout

    🦷 Don’t skip your tooth brushing! It’s so important to keep up good habits to avoid problems later on, such as shelling out big time to the dentist to fix you up 😬 We use @colgate toothpaste on our @oralb brushes twice a day, and a baby friendly version for Liam. Do you guys have a preference? . . . #teeth #toothpaste #smile #family

    Back to normal after a beautiful relaxing long weekend! We left Oxford this morning and visited @bicestervillage, bought nothing except some chocolate covered corncakes from @pretamangeruk. Not really feeling the whole ‘back to school’ thing tbh. . Wearing my @apc_paris coat here which I’m gonna need over the next few days 😩🌧 . . #oxford #bicestervillage #apc #tuesday

    Oxford! . . We’ve spent the bank holiday in Oxford, which is obscenely picturesque at every turn. Went to the oldest coffee shop in Europe, peeked at the university campuses, saw dinosaur skeletons in the natural history museum, had a picnic and walked along the river, past the punters. We’re cream crackered, but what a beautiful place! . Wearing a @zara t-shirt, Marian + Maral dress, @pumawomen trainers. And Russ’s @apc_paris hoodie in the second pic 🙂 .

    Happy Easter ! . . I love how many dairy free options there are these days! This @moo_free_chocolates Easter Egg is hitting the spot 👌🏻 When we were kids, all my chocolate would disappear within the hour but my brother @_pjhw_ would squirrel his away in his room, only for them to go stale six months down the line. I never understood it. Are you the type to eat everything on the day or to save it for later? . . #easter #eastersunday #dairyfree #easteregg #chocolate #purple #sugarhigh

    Easter Saturday! . . I made a Simnel Cake (gf/df) using Doves Farm @freeefoods flour as a traditional Easter treat. It’s delicious. And definitely the easiest gluten free flour to bake with. And we went out to enjoy the beautiful weather and for me to worry constantly about the mix of the sun and my son. We kept him out of it, I managed to obtain some freckles and everyone went home happy. . . Btw my top is from @hm . . . #easter #simnelcake #sun #yellow #sun #saturday #family

    This time last year... . . Getting some sun at 8 months pregnant. I was quite stressed about getting everything sorted before the baby came although had no idea really what to expect. Today I’ve spent time in the park with my perfect little 11 month old (as of tomorrow!) and feel so happy and lucky. He’s a really nice guy. . . Now I need to update my summer wardrobe as all my stuff from last year is maternity wear... this is a @calvinklein bra and a @zara skirt all bunched up 😂 what’s everyone into for the new season? . . . #tbt #throwbackthursday #spring #sunshine #summerwardrobe #happy #grateful #maternity #pregnant #8monthspregnant #eightmonths #mumtobe #mumsofinstagram

    Who else is loving the sunshine? ☀️ I love being outside, not cooped up and trying to find new exciting places to take Liam so he doesn’t get cabin fever! Watching him exploring the park is my new favourite thing 🥰 . . I thought I’d share my day to day makeup routine with you. Let’s be honest, if I’m not seeing anyone all day I don’t wear any, but today is a social one, so, here it is- drab to fab in under two minutes. Cos I’m all about a quick fix. 1. @miildmakeup brush and Mineral Blusher- to liven my otherwise corpse level paleness (both #gifted) 2. @bobbibrown Smokey Eye Mascara in black- so people don’t mistake me for Liam’s sister 3. @barrymcosmetics Eye Define Liquid Eyeliner in Cocoa- (see above) 4. @clinique Under Eye Concealer in 02- to eradicate the humungous dark circles from 11 months of sleep deprivation.

    9pm . . I’m going to bed! My days start so early that the thought of a late night is no bueno. I’m too lazy to have lengthy beauty routines, but I’m all about taking makeup off before going to sleep and moisturising. I’m using Hydrapuff for both which I was kindly #gifted- so I only need a tiny bit of product, as it absorbs so well. It gets a gold ⭐️ for the environment too as it’s biodegradable and cruelty free, and all the packaging is recyclable. Night everyone!

    The park . . I love being outside and wandering in nature. I can get so trapped in my own head and the best remedy is getting out and being reminded that I’m not the centre of the universe.

    Me and my boy. . . Currently watching ‘People Just Do Nothing’ (excellent) with a hot (oat) milk cos I’m WILD after a nice day at one of Liam’s friend’s 1st birthday party. Russ did the graveyard shift this morning after a bad night and I got to sleep in 🙌🏻. Days like today I feel so lucky to have someone to parent with, and HUMUNGOUS respect for any parent doing it solo. . . . #grateful #peoplejustdonothing #dahlboy #comedy #parents #mumsofinstagram

    Self tape! . . Here’s me auditioning from home... which involves trying to find a moment of peace to learn lines, setting up the tripod and finding someone to take Liam out for half an hour... then focusing and becoming someone else for that time. It’s not easy (it’s easier than 99% of other jobs) but mama’s got #bills. . . . #acting #workingmum #mumsofinstagram #selftape #audition

    Dark circles! . . I want to start sharing my day-to-day with you guys on here, as well as the highlights - so here’s me looking serious/ actually just very tired as Liam causes mayhem in the background. . When I was 14, a makeup artist used #Clinique under-eye concealer on me and I’ve used it every day since then. It’s my absolute go-to especially now given that I have permanent hollowed-out mum eyes unless I get this stuff on! I love it cos you don’t even have to bother with foundation, it just blends in to your skin, and lasts all day. Being very naive when it comes to makeup, I just smear it in using my finger. But hey, it works! What are some of your favourite concealers? It’d be hard for me to break up with this one, but I’m open to ideas 😊 . . . #clinique #makeup #glowup #undereye #makeuptutorial #beauty #darkcircles #permanantlytired #mumsofinstagram

    Had some friends over for dinner this eve so I made these delicious cookies for dessert. Here’s the recipe: https://www.theironyou.com/2013/08/paleo-chocolate-chunk-cookies.html?m=1 . Also I had a shopping day yesterday with Liam and got the top in @topshop. . Ps. I’m considering getting some Billie Eilish merch like a hoodie or something, I’m 28- would that be classed as tragic, mutton dressed as lamb, or is it legit to ship her and let the world know? . . . #vegan #glutenfree #cookies #paleo #delicious #topshop #billieeilish #fandom #stan

    Monday morning! ☀️ . I’ll pretend that the forecast isn’t rain for this afternoon and the rest of the week 🤦‍♀️ It’s so nice to sit outside with a coffee and not need to be wearing a million layers... living in the countryside I’m finally realising my dream of wearing a frock and boots, pretending to be Sienna Miller or Kiera Knightley in ‘The Edge Of Love’. . I love these boots so much, they’re @BlowfishMalibu (bringing a bit of California glam to Northamptonshire!) They go with anything (I’ve been wearing them everyday since I they were very kindly #gifted to me last week) and are such a fab, affordable brand of footwear. Hope you’re all off to a flyer for the week ahead! Xxx . . . #blowfishshoes #blowfishmalibu #california #boots #theedgeoflove #countryliving #countrystyle #sunshine #monday

    Anxiety. . . . I noticed that in a lot of the comments on my last post, people mentioned they suffer or have suffered with anxiety. Having been there myself a lot through my life, my heart goes out to everyone who’s experienced it, as it can be truly debilitating. One positive is that the more people talk about how they feel, the less alone we are, and the less alien these things are to others. I wrote a poem about it a while ago and decided to share it on my new blog, www.likedotty.com. Hope you can take something from it :) lots of love xxx .

    First driving lesson ! . I was soooo nervous today to do my first driving lesson in about six years (since I catastrophically failed a test 🤦‍♀️). I advised all my loved ones to lock themselves in their houses and stay off the roads. It turns out that learning out of London is a lot easier, and me and the instructor returned unscathed! . Let me know your driving experiences!! And how long it takes to get good! . . . #driving #drivinglessons #Lplates

    My sweet boy and his wonderful friend Lottie! . It’s so great watching Liam with other kids. He’s such a playful energetic little boy that it’s essential for him to be active as much as possible! I got him this Adidas tracksuit for his first Christmas present, it’s for 9-12 months and he just fits it now. I think he likes it judging by that happy face! . . . #adidas #adidasbaby #tracksuit #baby #blue #happy #mumsofinsta #friends #trampoline #playtime

    Happy Mother’s Day! . This was taken a few hours after Liam was born 💗 Becoming a mother has been the making of me. It’s so true that nothing can prepare you for how entirely different your world is once you have a baby. . I’m learning that while cute pics are nice highlights, the majority of the job is grafting- endlessly wiping down the high chair, changing nappies, laundry, getting him to sleep, playing with him even when I’m close to tears with tiredness. It’s not showing him how annoyed I am to be woken for the fifth time in a night, cos while it’s exhausting af for me, he’s a little boy who needs his mum. And my God do I love him. . . . #mothersday #sunday #mumsofinsta #motherandson #love #newborn #baby #babyboy
