2016/2017 life lessons!

Hey Everyone,

So I’ve had a little break away from blogging with all the things that have been going on in my life! I’ve really wanted to get back into the swing of things but the unreal exhaustion of my first trimester kind of put a stop to that! I literally slept every time Evvie slept on my days off work.

So the most exciting thing that happened last year was Evvie’s arrival!

She has taught me how to love unconditionally, how to multitask, she taught me patience, I now also make a lot of ‘to do’ lists or I forget everything. Since her arrival I am just so happy and only worry about things that concern me.

Earlier last year I opened my salon, which was a huge milestone for me! I’d been working for myself for about 3 years before hand and always wanted to open my own salon! We are now open a whole year and I am just so delighted with how things are going.

At the end of last year we moved into our own house. We have been rebuilding this house with about two years and to be honest we were finding it hard to picture ourselves ever moving in! Buuut we are there now, we still have bits and bobs to do but we’re so happy to have a family home for Evvie!


Our next big news is that we are expecting number 2! I am due in September and we are so excited! When I was pregnant on Evvie I always said I want 2 kids together (and then I’m done) so all going to plan there will be 13 months between them!

I know I will be busy, I know there will be challenges having two small kids, there will be challenges with my business but if this last year has taught me anything, it’s if you work hard and stay positive, amazing things can be achieved!

I remeber thinking when I was younger that my career would take a hit if I had kids but in fact it’s the complete opposite, it spurs me on to work harder!! And being my own boss gives me the luxury of taking an extra day here and there to spend time with them!


We have a lot of exciting stuff planned for Hemera this year!! It will be hard work to achieve all of our goals but we have never shyed away from hard work!

Lessons learned:

Things happen when they’re supposed to.

Great things can happen when you work hard.

You need people in your life you love and trust.

Becoming a Mom is the most amazing achievement.

And …..

You can do anything you set your mind to!

Thanks for reading!!

Much love <3
