This is a question I’ve asked myself more times than I’d like to admit. It tends to be more of an appearance question for me. I like to think I’m bold and ‘out there’ but then I look at the me I’ve presented to the world over the last 15 years or so compared to the me I think I am…and there’s definitely a difference.
Something definitely changed when I had our first child. I think being sick for a long time and then having a whirlwind* (*me trying to be positive and not use the phrase traumatic) birth experience, changes you. It changed me. If you’ve never been particularly unwell and then it happens to you…and you come through it, I think these experiences can leave you permanently altered.
I know it changed me.
Going through a similar ‘down period’ during this pregnancy and coming through it (thank God) has changed me again. Being a silver lining kinda girl, I’m riding this wave of change and I plan to extract every ounce of purpose from the pain I experienced.
Earlier this year, the first physical manifestation of this change happened – I hacked off all my hair. A few months later, I dyed it a blonde-brown colour. Some of you may be thinking, ‘So what?,’ but this was big for me. I decided I have no plans of being an old lady on my death bed wishing I’d had the balls to do x,y,z to my hair at some point in my life.
If it’s not harming you or harming others the question, ‘Is this too much?’ shouldn’t even matter. The timing of this new attitude and this business launching are not unrelated. They are one and the same. This is a core attitude of Mummy’s Muse. Children don’t ask, ‘Is this too much?’ They just do it. They act first and don’t even ask for forgiveness afterwards. This isn’t about shock factor for the sake of it, it’s about living free.
I’m probably not going to get tattoos because I’ve never wanted them, but I think it more of us behaved like the uninhibited children in our lives we’d be happier. If you want to do it, do it and equally if you don’t want to, don’t.
I’ve always wanted to go platinum blonde. I see this happening in the near future.

The Coach Approach
It’s been two weeks since I’ve written. I’m still going through a phase where I’m struggling to find balance and spend my time in an optimal way – the quest for boundaries continues. However it’s fine, I’m here, I’m well and many positive things have happened. One of which is that I’ve found a Coach. …
Hooray. I have samples. It’s been quite the process to get these made. I was initially in talks with a manufacturer I was interested in working with. We’d actually got quite far down the line talking, but we couldn’t go any further as I felt the MOQs (minimum order quantities) were just too high. I’m …
Who’s Your Mama?
