Well I finally made it. We are officially settled in the UK, and now that I have five minutes to myself, I thought I would start off with June Instagram RoundUp.
My cat arrived safely, the girl’s are loving their school, hubby has work all sorted, I have an awesome car, and house, and my step-daughter moved in with us!
It’s been all systems go! I’ve had to take a little break from regular blog posting because … there are only so many hours in the day!
But, in an attempt to ease myself back in, here are my Top 5 pictures from June 2018:
Adulting is hard!!
I received this awesome gift from a very special friend – Laetitia, who blogs over at Poppet Patch. It was a farewell gift, and the perfect gift too because I was stressing about weight allowance etc. wine is always the perfect gift for me, FYI!
I got the best surprise farewell gift in the post today – two bottles of wine via @netflorist sent by one of my best blogging buddies – Laetitia from @poppetpatch. One bottle from her and another on behalf of the#sabloggerscafe group. . Thank you everyone. You all inspire me every day! . And I love how my friends know exactly the perfect gifts to send me!! 🤣 . #farewell #goinggoinggone #bloggerstyle #parenting #wineformommy
I Believe In Fairy Tales
This awesome tee was designed by another amazing friend of mine, Charlene from High Heels & Fairy Tales. I am the original Jeans, trainers and t-shirts mom so this suited me perfectly!
“I believe in Fairy Tales” – courtesy of my blogging bestie @high_heels_and_fairy_tales and the @thatgirlsstore !! Slowly coming back to life after our hectic journey to the UK from SA! Missing Africa and feeling slightly overwhelmed here but … baby steps! . . . #momblogger #expatlife #girlmom #momtees #takingafricawithme
Presents For My Princess
My youngest turned 5 Years Old the week before we left South Africa. I was stressing about what I could get her because it needed to be stuff I could take with us. Fortunately she is really into pretty little girly things and this was all the precious things I got for my precious princess.
When you’re immigrating next week but it’s your daughter’s 5th birthday tomorrow, you have to buy teeny tiny gifts and pray she forgets about the doll house!!! 🙈 Bows and unicorn band from @lovisajewellery Most of the other stuff from @clairesstores and @clicks_sa ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ #birthdaygirl #unicornsarereal #girlmom
Wine Time with one of my besties! Maris from Mom Just Saying and I tried to make the most of our last few weeks living in the same complex as each other. It wasn’t just wine time, coffee time, breakfast time, and even just whine time! Miss you my friend. 😢
New Hair For A New Me
I decided to sort my hair out before leaving for the UK. It was time. And I LOVE this colour. What do you think? I just wish I could curl it like this myself!
I love my new hair!!! I haven’t had my hair coloured in about 18 months after a disastrous yellow highlights incident! With our new beginnings coming up I thought it was time for a shake up and so I got my hair done! When I picked the girls up from school the youngest spotted it immediately and started asking when can she have her’s done. The eldest needed some prompting and finally said, “Oh ya, it looks much better!” Thanks luv! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ #gotmyhairdid #thingsmykidssay #momlife #samomblogger #sabloggerscafe
