I am so thrilled to have my first interview here with the wonderful Mamalina.
In a nutshell – she is brilliant. I could just leave it there but let me jot down some more why.
She is a gorgeous mum to cuties, toddler Jack and baby Sonny. Blogging / Vlogging about motherhood and her amazing travels around the world with her troops. Her slow pace to life and relax approach is what I love reading about daily on her Instragam. She is not only one of the bloggers I follow who inspired me to start this blog but also introduced the #saynotostuff pledge which now I am taking part in. A year of decluttering and not getting anything (apart from food) for yourself. It is exciting and after 3 months in not as terrible as I first thought. Enjoy my interview with her …
What are the 5 things you do first thing in the morning?
Pull open the curtains, grab milk for Sonny, turn BBC radio 1 on, do a sun salutation and get a big glass of water
What are the 5 edibles you wouldn’t be able to live without?
Chocolate, cashew nuts, apples, avocados and fresh bread
What are the 5 values you want to raise your kids with?
Kindness is by far the most important value I want to instill in them. Apart from that, open-mindedness, a sense of adventure, a great sense of humor and the knowledge that money does not buy you happiness
5 pieces of parental advice you have given and would give to your friends and family?
Follow your gut – you know more than you think you do. Forget milestones – your baby won’t be crawling when they’re 15 years old. Ditch any strict routines – life’s too short and your baby probably isn’t tired. Get a good coffee maker. Say yes to adventure
5 words you say most often / every day to your kid/s?
“Do you need the toilet?”
What are the 5 hardest things you said no to since staring your #saynotostuff pledge?
