"Moms Don’t Need Fun Job Perks. They Need Child Care." - writes Kara Alaimo in Bloomberg news. Her piece discusses sizeable workplaces, particularly in the tech industry, offering employees every perk imaginable: on-site indoor rock climbing walls, a gym & fitness classes, free meals, on-site doctor and dentist appointments, massages, haircuts, free booze and even the ability to bring your dog into the office. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What's missing? On-site childcare. If there is a budget for the above, why is the one service that would genuinely help working parents (not just mums), omitted? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Does your company offer employee perks and if so, do they favour working parents? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Note: we'll add the article link in our stories so you can swipe up, and have included a link in our bio. . . . . #circlein #workingmum #workingdads #thejuggle #parentalleave #flexibleworking #workingmother #careermama #thejuggleisreal #careeradvice #maternityleave #returntowork #mamas #workingmama #perksofthejob #realstories #resources #mumlife #newmama #mamaconfidence #onsitechildcare #motherhoodunite #workplaceperks #modernmama #motherhood #modernmum #modernparenting #aussieparents #parentingblogger #impregnant

Today was my last day on maternity leave, as I’ve decided to go back to work a month early. This comes as no surprise to those who know me well, and most are probably surprised that I stayed off work this long! 😂#ilovetowork It’s been a long 11 months off work and although I can’t wait to be back next week, I’m soaking up every last second with my little. 👶 It’s going to be weird to have to put on real pants and brush my hair though. #gymclothesalways #backtowork #soready #careermama

Last Friday I had the pleasure of celebrating some amazing moms for a wine tasting, dinner and discussion. It was such a beautiful evening filled with inspiring words and supportive conversations. 💕 We shared our experiences with balancing being moms and wives with dreams and aspirations. 💕 I was so grateful to announce the launch of my new brand #momwifebosslife amongst such a dedicated group of moms with with shared experiences. 💕 Thank you to @blackgirlsdinetoo for hosting the wine tasting and catering the entire event. Your presence made the night so amazingly special. Thank you. 💕MomWifeBossLife * * * * #aboutaweekago #momwifebosslife #mymomwifebosslife #momlife #selfcare #survivingmotherhood #busymama #workingmoms #workingmama #careermama #newmoms #balance #marriedwithkids #loveandmarriage #selflove #unitedinmotherhood #mothersday #chrisandchloesmom #momlifeisthebestlife #wifelife #mommyblogger #blackmomsblog #instamoms #mompreneur #blackgirlmagic #winemoms #dinnerandconversation #gratitude

As a mom, I know I mess up, I fall short on doing things with and for my kids and I will not always make the right choices for them. I worry that I am not home enough or that missing a bedtime will scar them for life🤦‍♀️. 🔹️ But (there is always a but), I also know my heart is always in the right place. I want them to never question that they are loved by their parents and the Lord. I want them to never doubt their self worth and never put their worth in the opinions or actions of others. I pray they have more happy memories than difficult ones. I hope that when times get hard and bad things happen that they learn how to persevere, how to learn from those lessons, and then how to move on. And I pray that their Dad and I can teach them those life tools to survive this crazy world. 🔹️ When my daughter asks me to 'do yoga' with her, I know she has been watching me. I know she knows Mommy likes it. I am learning how to take care of myself and by my daughter watching, she is learning those life skills as well. 🔹️ So mommas remember that we all want the best for our babies. We all feel like we fall short, but our kids just need our love. Our unconditional, understanding love. Everything else is a bonus. If no one has told you today, you are doing an amazing job!

This is my real life look after finishing up the plank series of my Pilates workout. 💛 These workouts are not easy. Somedays I have no desire to press play. Somedays my muscles burn so badly I have to drop down or take a break. 💛 But guess what? I am doing more than sitting on my couch or staying in bed. Who cares if I have to take a quick break? Who cares if I have to modify? 💛 I am stronger this morning since I showed up for my workout than I would be if I had elected to stay in bed. 💛 So GET Up. Press PLAY. Move your body. And make yourself STRONG. You will never regret a workout you finished.

I’ve made a lot of ‘mistakes’ in my almost 33 years of life. Who hasn’t? The word mistakes has a negative connotation. Sometimes ‘mistakes’ can turn out to be a blessing. - - I did a degree in fashion promotion. I was drawn to it because I’m creative and love to craft stories and bring out the best in people. - - But fashion didn’t fit in with my new life discoveries, and it didn’t fulfill the heart work that I realized I was called by God to do. That heart work is helping people be the best they can be and get the most out of life using work as a vehicle. - - I made the transition from learning how to write articles, coordinate stylists and models, and put together magazine content to the professional, training, and coaching industry in 2009. - - You too can change the color of your life, add more, or takeaway. Don’t buy into a career change myth. - - Anything is possible! ❤️🙏🏾

I have a lot going on right now... and the busyness of life hasn’t exactly been filling my cup. For my entire adult life, I have felt that my worth was somehow related to my title, my salary, my level of responsibility at work, my contributions. I worked hard and pushed myself to do more, to be better, to work harder than my peers. I learned a lot. I tried many different things. I thought climbing the preverbal ladder was going to bring me new and better opportunities therefore building the life I wanted. But it wasn’t the life I NEEDED. Mother’s Day was special for me. I realized I was taking for granted the amazing opportunity God has given me to be a mother. We struggled through pregnancy losses and it took years of courage and strength to continue trying after each loss. And I was taking it for granted. I’m lucky. I have a husband who works hard to provide for our family. I have a job that provides me the ultimate flexibility to be able to cut back my hours and spend more time with my girls. I have a blossoming business that is growing as quickly as I can invest my passion into it. And I’m lucky enough to have women surrounding me who are older and wiser than I am who remind me that time isn’t something you can ever get back. So, I am refocusing and starting to put more weight into my self-worth as a mother - the most difficult, thankless, rewarding, and blessed job in this life. Finding this balance and accepting the change has been difficult. But as I tell my girls... it’s time to be brave, be strong, brush it off and move on! #truthinmotherhood #motherhoodunplugged #motherhoodrising #careermama #workingmomlife #workingmomguilt #momguilt #beingmommy #momlifeisthebestlife

Instead of trying to obtain true 50-50 balance, understand that sometimes one role has to get 60% sometimes while the other gets 40% and that’s ok. When I realized this was true, I learned how to better prioritize my work- life tasks and my mommy-life tasks and that’s where the true balance lies. Mom. Wife. Boss.

@lendmethedressnz || Every Mama deserves to feel beautiful, especially when pregnant. But we all know just how difficult it is to find something that a) fits us and b) won't cost an arm and a leg only to be worn once. Every time we've had special events on, or family photos.. I've never been happy with what I've worn! Everything I did like was from overseas or cost way too much for me to justify paying. I searched other dress hire sites and became frustrated that there was nothing catering to pregnant women. This is where my idea to collect beautiful dresses and hire them out came from. I've added in girls dresses for ages 0-9 as well, because as Mothers we also spend way too much on our little girls outfits for birthdays/photos/ special events. We all know they're also only going to wear that dress once 🤣🙈 This dress hire service is specifically catered towards pregnant women/ breastfeeding mamas and young girls. I'm so excited to share this with you all and am working hard to get everything up and running. Thankyou for all the support already! Watch this space ✨

At Circle In we talk a lot about our different journeys through the early stages of parenthood. Holding a volunteer position on parental leave is not usually one of these, but our contributor this week, Nancy Panter, encourages us all to think differently about volunteering.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Nancy, who is the Vice-Chair of her local hospital, says volunteering, even with a tiny infant, was one of the best decisions she made.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ‘It provided me with some intellectual stimulation and it energised me,’ Nancy tells us. ‘I was doing something good and using my brain.’⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Read more > Link in bio.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . #circlein #workingmum #workingdads #thejuggle #parentalleave #flexibleworking #workingmother #careermama #thejuggleisreal #careeradvice #maternityleave #returntowork #careermother #workingmama #volunteering #realstories #resources #mumlife #newmama #mamaconfidence #mumlife #motherhoodunite #mama #modernmama #motherhood #modernmum #modernparenting #aussieparents #parentingblogger #impregnant

Today is International day of Families. And, as Australia goes to the polls this weekend, we’re looking at the policies that affect working families...first up is parental leave. And unfortunately, the improvements are only marginal.. @liberalaus has committed to offering parental leave so that it can be accessed more flexibly. ⠀ ⠀ While @Australianlabour has said it will pay superannuation on the 18 weeks of government paid parental leave.⠀ Neither comes close to what we really need....26 weeks at the replacement wage, plus superannuation, with at least 4 of those weeks dedicated to partners/dads on a use it or lose it basis. ⠀ ⠀ What would you like to see from our parental leave policies?⠀ ⠀ #parentalleave #impregnant #workingmums #workingdads #worklifebalance #workingmama #genderequal #careermama #parernityleave #maternityleave #australiavotes #gracepapers #returntowork #parentsatwork #backatwork #flexiblework #sydneymums #brisbanemums #perthmums #melbournemums #adelaidemums #aussiedads #canberramums #audsiedads #fatherhood #motherhoodunplugged #dadsatwork #parentingblog #workingfamilies

"I don't have the time.... I don't have the money... I am just too busy.... . These are the 'classic three ' that have stolen more dreams from people than anything. The truth is-- people do what they want, buy what they want, and are as busy as they want to be, for what they are interested in. . Protect yourself and DO IT ANYWAY! Opportunity waits for No One!" . If you are ready to invest in yourself, feel better about yourself, and be surrounded by a supporting group going through the same thing, I am here for you. There is no time like the present.

Life completely changed for me when I became a mother. It caused me to rethink my career, my priorities, the values I held versus what I was actually modeling through my actions to my children. One limiting belief that really held me back after having children was thinking that I had to stay in a job where I felt unchallenged and complacent, in exchange for flexibility as a working parent. As women we commiserate over this “truth” in Facebook groups, on Moms Night Outs, and in frustrated text threads with our girlfriends. We crowdsource our limiting beliefs and tell each other they’re true. Misery loves company, but it also perpetuates these lies and doesn’t solve the problem. I also believed I was being “Mommy Tracked,” but that an income plateau was the cost for having a job that allowed me to be home by dinner. I walked right into that prison cell myself— I stopped aggressively negotiating for promotions and raises, thinking: “I’d rather have a relationship with my child than more money.” Now, as a coach, I see all the ways my mindset was hurting me. Keeping me stuck in unfulfilling work, reducing my lifetime earnings, showing up as a burnt out, unhappy Mom in the few hours I had at the end of the day. There are systemic problems for sure, but what I’ve realized through coaching dozens of women is that we don’t even need the system to hold us down. We internalize all of these limiting beliefs and then hold ourselves back. We don’t even need the system to do it anymore. If we are going to change the workplace, if we are going to shatter glass ceilings, if we are going to break through the gender gap, the work starts with breaking the chains INSIDE OF US.

💫Dimensional Blonde💫 I added some deeper blonde pieces to this platinum blonde babe’s hair. Adding low lights doesn’t mean you have to go dark! You can go a level or two deeper to give your hair a more lived in look, and to create more depth with your hair color. It creates a more natural pattern, and breaks up your line of demarcation as your hair grows out.

I so remember my feelings January 1st when I put this sweater on. I was going to spend the morning with my bestie while Logan kept the kiddos. I was a new mom again, my clothes were tight, and I was discouraged. That is the day I decided to get serious about my health and fitness journey. ❤ Fast forward 11.5 months later, my clothes fit better, I was stronger, physically and mentally, I was down 30lbs, and I believed in myself more. 💜 Mamas (both human and fur), it is okay to say enough is enough and take care of yourself. 💚 You are not being selfish if you workout 30 minutes a day and fuel your body with clean, nutritious food. 💛 It is scary and hard to start this journey. I had the same thoughts in my mind. What if I fail? What if I don't have the time with 2 babies and a full time job? But then I asked the right questions; what if I just stayed as I was, unhappy with my body, weak, and putting crap food into my mouth? Both options are hard, but you need to choose your hard. 💪 If you are ready to get started on your pwn own journey but don't know where to start, drop me your favorite emoji 😍and I can share with you my journey and help you get started.

Santino is smiling ear to ear (and squinting like mama) because he got the game ball today at baseball! He was given the game ball because he got his first BIG hit. . . Guess where I was when this happened? I was in our car with my screaming 18 month old. 🤦🏻‍♀️ . . We literally just walked to the car because it was the last inning and he didn’t hit the whole game until I walked to the car with the baby. . . I am so proud of him and he said “You are right, I just needed to keep trying and try my best.” — when did he get so wise? GO RAYS!

Two years ago, I used to smoke 8-10 cigarettes EVERYDAY at work. Yep. We moved into beautiful new offices with a fully equipped gym.. and I used to say “why the hell would I want to work out THERE.” and instead I’d stand outside the window smoking. 🤷🏼‍♀️🤦🏼‍♀️ . Flash forward, not only do I no longer smoke (thanks to Silas for finally kicking that) I am a busy mama who has to make the most of her schedule. I now use my lunch breaks to have my virtual trainer kick my ass for 30 minutes. What a difference! I realize not everyone works in an office with a gym, but take a look at what you’re doing in the hours you’re at work and see where you can make changes. Do you take smoke breaks? Do you sit at desk for 8+ hours? Do you eat fast food for lunch? Simple changes (I know quitting smoking is HARD) but even getting up and going for a walk or preparing a lunch can mean the world of difference to your health and longevity. Think about it and see what you can do on Monday! You might even see your efforts start to affect your coworkers positively too 🤗🥰

I want to remind you that everyone has a start. A point where you finally had a enough-- enough of being overweight, enough of being sick & tried, enough of not having enough money at the end of the month, enough of being passed up for promotions, enough for being surrounded by toxic people, enough of being treated poorly.... The breaking point.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And then you start your transformation, little by little. Day by day. Hour by hour.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But don't forget the start. That powerful motivator that finally got you moving.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Shout out to @kyrawilliamsfitness for the amazing coaching, training, and motivation she has provided me.

A week ago we were heading to the hospital to have our baby boy... . Today at 1 week postpartum I’m feeling really good but obviously taking it slow after having major surgery. I have to chuckle because, you guys... I haven’t worn regular clothes for a week, Matt bought me a cart that I wheel around the house, I have alarms in my phone to take pain relievers and I can’t even drive myself anywhere yet. What the heck happened?! 😂😂😂 . I’m still in awe of the human body and what it can do to create and sustain another life. I thank God for the ability to do so and even though I’m physically not able to do much right NOW, I’m thankful for the healing process being underway. It will take some time but I know that by taking care of myself the right way I will feel totally myself again. . I’m kind of liking the cart, though... I might keep using that. 🤔 . SHOUT OUT to all of you out there who are working on loving your body because it is HARD sometimes and I’m proud of you!! 💗👊🏼

In my devotional I am reading, there was a sentence that just screamed at me. 🔅 "You're not a pond. You're a river. Everything that God pours into you is for you to pour into somebody else." 🔅 Think about it, pond water sits and becomes stagnant, but rivers have streams and other sources of water that are continuing to feed it, to add life to it, to continue to feed it so to speak. 🔅 Our minds and souls should not be a stagnant pond. We should constantly be pouring new information into it, adding new life, purpose, and reason. Then we need to take that purpose and reason and share it with others. Turning completely inward defeats the purpose and turns you into that pond. Sharing with others helps your river to continue flowing to keep it alive. 🔅 What do you do to keep yourself from being stagnant? I have a devotional I read, some journals, and then try to read or listen to a personal developement book or podcasts.

So we’ve cruised right on through to Thursday in the blink of an eye. I feel I’m nailing it on all fronts as our two biggest small people made it to school yesterday. They may be missing certain vital pieces of kit {and yes I did get the memo, starred it in my inbox and promptly forgot} but as my daughter pointed out ~ they always have spares Mummy. I should point out that I did also forget to bring any cutlery with which to eat my lunch. Admittedly am still feeling vaguely holiday~ish as Mr T took a rare day off yesterday to spend with the smallest two. Result ~ boys museum day out and I came home to spag bol and wine. Wondering if I can book myself on another training course... could get used to this being waited on thing 😂 Thursday hugs lovely folk and for those of you juggling small people plus life ~ you got this🖤 ~ ~ ~ #stylesisterhood @_mummy_moi_ @pleatedcotton #myfeelgoodfashion @thestylecoop ~ ~ ~ #thehappynow #ig_motherhood #agameofportraits #theeverygirl #careermama #motherhoodlens #ootd #persuepretty #prettyinpink #girlnextdoor #clickinmoms #momlife #mummydiaries #schoolrunmum #whowhatwear #metoday #currentlywearing #mydaytoday #workinggirl #ombrehair #balayage #workwear #streetstyleluxe

☀️ . . . Value add, happiness. Manifestation, thoughts, visualizations of your life circumstances are REAL. This is not only a selfie, this is a woman, who’s truly, living her dream. A home, that I don’t spend 💯 cleaning, because we’re spending more time laughing and outside. Children, whom, my god, are soo beautiful and healthy. A job, that contributes to stability and ability to provide, not only needs, but wants also. A smile, Confidence, that is real. And a new Good Morning, An energy, that’s comfortable, that adds light. So much light. . . #successful #successisfoundinhappinessnotmaterials #ifyouhavethemthatsabonus #manifestation #lawofattraction #mamabear #careermama #thankfulwoman #gratefulwoman #behappy

Keratin Treatment before and after! *Side Note* This is my clients second appt with me in a week. I touched up her base and her highlights in her first appt, then had her come back a week later to do her keratin treatment. I always recommend to space out hair color and keratin treatment appointments separately. WHAT IS IT? A formaldehyde-free and thioglycolate-free temporary smoothing treatment that smoothes, straightens and strengthens hair, drastically reducing frizz, curl and wave for up to 12 weeks. This is for all hair types! WHO IS IT FOR? Any client who has challenges with frizz, out of control curl, a need to reduce drying/styling time by 50%, or a desire for more manageable hair in general. WHAT DOES IT DO? This Keratin Smoothing System was formulated to safely smooth, straighten and strengthen hair, drastically reducing frizz and curl. Some chemical relaxing services can cause hair to become dry and damaged, but this Keratin Smoothing System actually improves condition and enhances shine as it smoothes.

Love this advice... follow your heart and let the fear of regret be greater than the fear of the unknown. So, leave the job, try something new, go on that date, start your side hustle... Repost @jamie_gonzalez

This is me. Working Mama Bear. I work FULL time and sometimes weekends as a Digital Marketer. This is me laughing at my desk because I’m speaking to my co-workers who crack me up all day, everyday, and who I love like family. Is it sometimes hard to balance having a career and being a mother? For sure it is! Do I let it stop me from taking care of myself? Nope. Does it stop me from pursuing my passions? Nope! Am I still able to coach and bring in additional income for my family? Yep! My side gig holds me accountable 💯 to my commitment to myself. It means my fitness and a huge part of my nutrition is FREE every month. It also covers things like groceries, gas, gifts for my son, date nights.. etc. without having to dip into my salary at all. I took the time I spent scrolling the internet or watching TV in the evenings and turned it into something productive. Simple. You can do it too. Trust me you have the time. Accepting applications to my team now.

Today is the day! You’ve Got This, Mama, Too is now available on Amazon. It is shipping prime and we are having our amazon best seller rally today! What does that mean?! We are climbing the charts! Every order today helps these authors book to rank well and get more exposure :) and for amazon USA, it happens to be on sale! 🎉 thank you for your support!

A warm welcome back to our newly promoted Associate Solicitor Nicola Meldrum from her maternity leave today. 👣🧸

Woke up to this rainbow on our road trip to Byron. And I found out that ‘Rainbows speak directly to our heart and soul, filling us with awe and energies of liquid love pouring all around us. Rainbows bring the promise that the troubles of today will surely come to pass, hold strong in your faith and vision and the rainbow will bring fresh beginnings, and new prosperity.’ 🙏

A lesson I am learning and living daily. When I have rough and demanding days, self doubt comes rollong in. I question why I chose to live life in such a demanding way. I question how I am supposed to be a good wife, a good mother, a good doctor, a good boss, and even a good person. ❤ Then I feel guilty and like I am slacking when people I love offer help and support in multiple ways. 💚 But guess what, this is all in my head. We weren't made to do everything alone. We were made to help one another, to lift one another up when needed. And it is okay to accept help. It takes a tribe to live life these days. 💜 Today, instead of focusing on everything I need to do or can't get done, I am CHOOSING to focus on how blessed I am to have my tribe. I will SURRENDER to the help and wonderful things that everyone around me brings to the table. And I will not feel unworthy to stand beside them and accept their help. I AM enough, today, and everyday.

2018 vs 2016 So much has changed from the girl on the left and the girl on the right. . Ella has grown into a little girl. Ben was added into the picture. . Girl on the left was running on way less sleep in 2018 ( up every few hours). . The girl on the left is 30lbs lighter and her clothes fit more loosely. . But the biggest transformation is her mental state. . She BELIEVES in herself. She INVESTS in herself She gives more GRACE to herself. She is learning to LOVE herself. . Physical changes are great, but it is the mindset that will sustain these changes for a lifetime.

Rolling over is an important developmental milestone for your baby. It is the starting point for balance skills, including sitting up and crawling. Here are 3 top tips from Baby Sensory expert founder Dr Lin Day… • Plenty of tummy time during supervised waking hours will strengthen your baby’s upper body muscles in preparation for rolling over. • Sing ‘Rock-a-bye-Baby’ and gently rock your baby before rolling them over. • Play ‘Peek-a-boo’ on one side of your baby to encourage him to roll towards you. Advice from @babysensory_australia_and_nz #babysensoryaustraliaandnz #tummytime #babysensorytoptips

12:24 A.M. . . My normal end time. A small photo, of a small part of my night... Late night Special K Cereal, tastes amazing. Children are bathed and snoring, animals are too. Tidy tomorrow’s items and place for easy access in the mornings.. I’ve done this every night following “normal” night time family activities- since the first day of school, and all I can think about, is how I only have a few weeks left.. before a whole new year.. one less year. .

If you want to get fit, you must give away one thing. Your excuses. . I have plenty of excuses my mind could have talked me into this week, but I didn't listen. I knew if I pushed through them I would feel better, I would be stronger, and I would be proud. . What is your favorite thing you like to tell youself as to why you can't exercise or eat right? I know my list that I still battle daily sometimes, but I would love to hear what is holding you back! . #noexcuses #selflove #selfcare #thisis30 #progressnotperfection #healthyhabits #strong #strongasamother #strongisbeautiful #strongispretty #girlswholift #liift4 #fuelyourbody #21dayfix #beachbodyondemand #beachbody #beachbodyondemand #curlyhair #curlsforthegirls #workhardplayharder #pushyourselfeveryday #careermama #workingmomlife
