As the year comes to an end I can’t help but to reflect on all the good, bad and ugly features of the year. The year has been bitter sweet. There are a lot of mind sets and bad habits I want to leave behind. I want to love more freely, forgive quickly and live each day like it’s my last.


The highlight of 2017 is the birth of my son. I didn’t think we were going to have another baby so soon but he has been the loveliest addition to our little family. He is so calm and laid back. He also has a side to him that is straight to the point with no time for nonsense. My daughter is also a no none sense type of person but she is very feisty. She’s like those delicious skittles but the tropical flavoured ones. Some of the flavours are a little tangy and that’s how my princess is. I love how both of my children have assertive leader qualities imbedded in them. I know they will be incredible grownups one day.

2017 has shown me no matter how much I love creating art and design I love being a mum more. My little darlings drive me up the wall and sometimes I wish I could run off to a remote island to sleep, eat and use the toilet by myself but after a couple of hours I always want to see their faces. Yes, I am that parent that posts hundreds of pictures of my children shamelessly. I will be continuing this habit into 2018 and many more years to come. Of course, I am going into 2018 with my giant list of goals and things I aspire to do, but for now my heart is full. So, to all you beautiful people reading this happy new year. I hope 2018 is everything you dream of and more.
