“Happiness is… embracing the glorious mess” — Anonymous

By now you’re probably aware that life is a little different as a mum. For starters, there are a lot less hours in the day. Secondly, the hours you do have are spent in the constant company of one or more little creatures that can’t eat, sleep, drink or WIPE THEIR OWN BOTTOMS without you.

But not only has life changed through an abundance of new chores added to your list.

Things that used to be Super Important Must-Dos suddenly become less so.

A few weeks into the mothering game and you might find your leather pants are no longer on high rotation. Your grey roots start to look less like tourists and more permanent residents. Hell, even showering becomes a ‘nice to have’.

And while the first bit of being a mum is a shocking change, before long you start to emerge from the glorious mess — older, wiser, more interested in showering, and maybe even doing your hair again.

Trouble is, life is irreversibly different. And whatever your wardrobe and hairstyle before kids, it’s likely to have changed a bit after. Where to start? With Happiness of course.

Forget all the stuff you did to fit in. Forget the trendy clothes you wore, the finicky hairstyles you had. Now’s the time to take your hair happiness into your own hands. The Schwarzkopf Hair Happiness Test is an easy-as quiz designed to help you narrow down the personality and products that define your happiest hair.

In honour of happy hair, I’ve started compiling a definitive list of things that make me happy now as a mum of two. Because, let’s face it, it’s never not all roses and sunshine around there. So it’s worth celebrating the good stuff. Here goes!

Hands up if you’re after comfortable, stylish, durable shoes for your kids this summer? 🙋🏻 Can you see both my hands waving above my head? 😂

Little feet grow so fast, and tiny shoes get so worn out, that buying new sandals every season is a must. Enter Bobux Shoes — a New Zealand-based, international brand that specialises in podiatrist-approved shoes for babies and toddlers.

Since their launch in 1991, Bobux has led the way in developing shoes that love kids’ feet. Their current styles are the result of years of research into how children move as they grow from newborn to running and jumping little maniacs. Oh, and did I mention the shoes look great too? 👌

This season Bobux invited me to showcase my favourite styles from their summer range. I hope you love them as much as I do! 💖
