#SISTERHOODINDAWORKPLACE😬 Shout me if you’ve ever have or had worked for a female boss, line manager, supervisor, or had a co worker, or colleague who for some reason or the other is, backstaby, unreasonable, vindictive or downright rude especially to you. ---- She clocks you when you are about to leave the office at your contracted hours 5pm (as you have that commute to your child’s nursery or after school club) She is unaware that you arrived in the office a whole hour before the cleaners. And won’t sign off your working from home Fridays application, or stitches you up at your team meetings, pitch meetings. We wanna know? Why?... Well, I’ve asked our community about the things that stress or overwhelm them, and we’ve listened to you. (We always try to get back to everyone, promise) And this was one of the themes that stood out. ---- We are all about keeping things light, bringing you more joy as we seriously don’t want to stress you out, life can be hard as it is right?

#MONDAYMIDAFTERNOONTREAT I don’t have a Monday motivational quote for you, as I know us mums are already motivated. Our kids are either asleep (they’d better be a new born) nursery, after school club, university or have moved out. ---- And it’s that time in the day, when we can grab a breather from whatever it is that we are doing, whether we’re working at home, in the office, or coffee shop, wherever! ---- And I’m going to provide you with that breather. A moment to chill. Breathe in and then out and ogle this newbie. ---- We call it the Olivia Rose backpack, 🎒it’s made from luxurious calf leather and in limited edition quantities and we have another 8/25 left. Yes only EIGHT and when their gone their gone.😍💋😘💕 ---- Our mission is to encourage mama’s everywhere to take time out for themselves, enjoy and start their own solo stories.

#BIGSCHOOL Yep these were the first words from my little one this morning. ---- New beginnings, new friends, new building, teachers and new shoes. ---- Change is hard for most of us but I thought my little one had this in the bag. I thought the above quote was one of his jokes 😂😂 Nah it wasn't 😬 as he proceeded to shy away from the teachers, not wanting to greet them and hiding behind my legs asking where his old friends were. Then telling them that he just wanted to chill 😬 ---- To be honest I think his words just want to stay at home and relax resonate with about 99% of the population. It's also just happens to be one of my fav past times... so maybe that's where it comes from😊 ---- At NB we are all about relaxing, not stressing out. And we do this by slowing down and appreciating the beauty of the world around us despite what's others may think of us. Sometimes that means we may need to go with the flow embracing change. Something I intend to show my little one... ---- We share with our audience a cocktail of light hearted banter, stories and soulful musings, plus fun and useful tips to help us manage and enjoy our work life challenges. We also throw the odd gift out here and there... ....oh and we design leather backpacks 🎒 that speak to ambitious women, go getters who want their all, but need to slow down.

We call these adventures. ---- She's large and in charge with bright accents of contrast colour, and made in limited edition lines. This means you'll be one of the very few to rock these. ---- Our mission is to get you to become handsfree.

#ELTONJOHN I love this song, has so much meaning esp on a Monday morning or a terrible weekend, or victory over thing you've conquered ✅ ---- I spent the weekend recovering from another anaphylactoid attack... and although I've not conquered this illness I'm literally still standing, well I'm out of hospital and on the road to recovery.🤒💕😊I would post a picture but not all sharing is caring (do you know what I mean? 😬) ---- This is a picture of my yoga hang out... hot yoga studio and literally after a session I'm jumping for joy up those stairs singing 🎤 that song! ---- I'm still standing 🎼 🎶 yeah yeah yeah!
