Well, here it is, welcome to my blog! I’d been thinking about doing this for a long time but something always held me back. I can’t even pinpoint what that ‘something’ is, but I decided to grab the bull by the horns and just go for it.

To be honest, I’ve always thought, who on earth would want to read anything that I wrote? My life isn’t anything extraordinary, I don’t do anything that exciting, I’m no Instagram guru, so who would be interested? But here you are..!

So, a little about me; I’m Talila, a thirtysomething, first time mum to my lovely boy Carter who was born in May 2018. We live in the Midlands with my partner and our friendly snack-obsessed French Bulldog, Hercules.

Before I joined the world of Parenthood, I worked full time on projects at a large UK company, a role which I thoroughly enjoyed. I enjoyed carefree travelling, shopping, eating & drinking out and was a bit of a gym bunny! I’ve also always been the creative type, who always needs to have a project on the go.

My world has now changed slightly: I work part-time in the same role and want to continue to make the most of my time at work as well as my time spent at home with my family and friends.

So what is this blog about, anyway?

I’d love to use this blog as a way to help me stay motivated and focused on my goals. I’m aiming to inspire you to have a more positive mindset, set achievable goals for yourself and create the life you want. We all have dreams for the future, and I’ve spent a lot of time over the last few years dreaming about where I’d like to be. I realised that without actually committing myself properly, then I’m very unlikely to get there!

Hopefully, I can share a bit of my knowledge and experience with you, and learn a lot of new things along the way!
