This week’s list of things we love is inspired by motherhood in all its forms. Whether you’re a mum yourself, celebrating your own mother or even a mama friend, we wish you a very happy Mother’s Day...
All power to the single parents out there who are doing an amazing job of being both mum and dad. If you’re in need of a bit of solidarity, give the ‘Alright For A Mum’ podcast a listen. Two strong single mamas tackle subjects from dating to co-parenting and it’s just brilliant.
A fascinating read on the somewhat controversial question of whether or not to become a mother. One favourite observation the author makes suggests that we should direct our essence of mothering and nurturing qualities back towards our own mothers (who nurtured us), which I found very inspiring.
It’s hard to believe that stylist Hannah MacLeod and her mum don’t like being in front of the camera. A beautiful ode to mother and daughter style, their brilliant Instagram feed @grahamst.fashion provides ‘age inconsequential’ style inspiration (whether you’re in your 30s, 60s or beyond).
I’m expecting, so I’ll be doing a bit of indulging on Mother’s Day by browsing our ‘non-maternity, maternity’ edit. I love that it’s full of pieces I’ll be able to wear beyond the nine months and there’s something that will work for every trimester.
One book that I always give to recently-turned-mama friends is ‘French Children Don’t Throw Food’. It’s fun to read (an American in Paris narrator), it challenges parenting norms in this country, but most importantly: it’s the primary reason that my daughter has slept through the night since the age of 4 months.
