Valentine’s Day Gift Guide

Even though this is one of the most contentious days of the year, where the romantics fight it out with those that believe it’s a commercial stunt, for the most part, everyone likes receiving a little something something on Valentine’s Day. So for those of you who want pick up something special for your significant other here are some ideas (I hope my husband finally checks the blog this week, hint hint).

Turning 30


Yep, it’s happening, I’m turning 30 this month, and you know what? I’m actually ok with it. Well obviously I have to be ok with it because there’s nothing I can do to change my age, but when I say I’m ok with it, what I actually mean is I’m embracing it with open arms.

You hear all of these stories of people approaching the big three O having breakdowns, not wanting to celebrate but wanting to drown their sorrows.

How I Got Here

Ok, so I’m very very new to the blogging world, I literally only read a blog for the first time earlier this year. After reading a number of great blogs, I decided to give it a crack because I love the idea of sharing my experiences with others. This is pretty much life according to me, Vita.

Earlier this year, my life changed forever following the birth of my first child. Before he was born I knew things would never be the same, or atleast I assumed that much, but I could never really know just how profoundly my life would change for the better. Having said that, this isn’t by any means just a mummy blog. I’m not going to lie, I’ll share stories about my motherhood journey so far, but that is only one part of what I want to share. Naturally since having my son, I feel like the way I view myself and my life has changed, but not to the extent that I thought it would. To be honest it just helped to put things in perspective, I stress about so many things that really don’t matter, so now I try to focus on the important things and not let unimportant things get to me.
