Friday Favourites: The One About Music

Friday Favourites:
The One About Music

The One About Music

I had a lot of self doubt this week which put me into a bit of a funk. I also had a dentist appointment, and the first part of my root canal treatment took place. I’m an anxious person as it is, and the Dentist truly freaks me out. However, it went well and I’m not scarred for life haha … Don’t forget, if you have a favourite blog, please share it with us below by clicking on the “ADD YOUR LINK” button.


1. Smoothies

I became a bit smoothie obsessed this week – I love having a smoothie for breakfast, and after being at the Dentist and having trouble eating, the smoothie was perfect!  I had a brilliant idea on Snapchat that someone should make pre-made smoothie packs, that can just be blended up – and you guys responded by telling me about the Real Smoothie Co. I ordered 4 smoothies and wasn’t disappointed – they were pretty good! I also heard a lot about these awesome smoothie packs from the Supermarket called “Serious Smoothies” – I will be trying this as well!

2. Music

You guys don’t know this but music often saves my life – and this week was no exception. As a girl growing up in the 90’s some of my favourite music is from back then … I sometimes have random dance parties on my Snapchat (happymumnz) and put together a compilation showing how much of an idiot I am …



4. Actual Adult Interaction

On Thursday I went for a play date with some other Mum’s I’d met through a New Zealand Business Page on Facebook. I LOVE doing shit like this because not only does it get me out of the house, but it gives me the opportunity to talk to actual adults. Even if we just talk about our kids the entire time! So grateful for the opportunity ????

5. The Baby Show

If you didn’t know, I worked at The Baby Show in Auckland today. I am helping my friend Tracey out, who runs August Boutique. The Baby Show is on ALL weekend, and I can tell you that there are some amazing bargains here. GENUINE bargains. I worked at The Baby Show last year and was skeptical that the stuff was actually a good deal – BUT IT IS. TRUST ME.

I also met so many of you today and I am so grateful for those who came up and said hi to me (and to those who just walked passed and didn’t say anything) … it means so much to me that you follow my crazy antics as a parent. I truly believe we are all in this parenting thing together, in one way or another, and your continued support means the world to me.

If you head to The Baby Show this weekend, be sure to come and see Tracey and I – we’re on the August Boutique stand in Hall 3.

You guys have been amazing this week, as per usual haha … you have such amazing words of encouragement for myself and for others and I am truly grateful. I am aware each of us is on our own journey, and has our own struggles, but am in awe of the fact you still have enough strength in you to be kind to an idiot like me. Thank you.
