// Get glam in 3 steps
With Natalie @peaceblissandbeauty
Forget an elaborate 15 step makeup routine. Mama ain’t got time for that. To look fresh, Nat swears by these 3 products -
Apply a thin layer of the tinted moisturizer with your fingers. A good one will conceal redness or purple tones.
Nat prefers a liquid concealer rather than a cream based one. A little goes a long way & it’s easier to blend in. Use it under the eyes [bye-bye panda eyes].
Dab a bit on the lips to gloss ‘em up. Then a smidge on the cheeks. Blend in with a brush along your cheekbone.

With Louise @moretomum | moretomum.com.au
Want more sleep? Yeah, we can’t really promise that. But Louise has a super practical tip about how to get emotional rest.
Louise asks - have you ever spent time with someone & walked away feeling completely refreshed? Some people make us feel better just by being in their presence. Think about this - who do you trust? Who do feel really comfortable with? These relationships give us emotional rest.
During this pandemic, we can’t physically be around these wonderful peeps. But, we can go old skool and call them. Or new skool and FaceTime or Zoom with them. The tech doesn’t matter, it’s just about making time to lock in a virtual date with someone who’ll lift you up.
Who can you connect with?

// Turbocharge your energy with a smoothie
With Melissa @melfinlay_nutritionist | melissafinlaynutritionist.com
Smoothie obsessed? They’re super easy to make, taste great & can turbocharge your energy levels.
Mel’s top tips are to throw in ingredients that are a great source of fibre, fat & protein.
Kale & Spinach // Fibre & B-vitamins
Avocado & Hemp Seeds // Fat & protein
WHY? B’coz these ingredients will help to balance out hormones & keep you full longer. And more importantly give you the energy boost you need to get to the end of the loooong days.

With Lisa @badmumsclub | badmumsclub.com
After Lisa became a second time Mum, her mental health took a big hit. And she’s here now to give you the pep talk, all Mums need.
You don’t have to suck it up! Motherhood is hard but there’s no trophies for the Mum that does everything by herself.
You should not have to do this alone.
You are worthy of support & you deserve it. Sleep deprivation can wreak havoc on your mental health. If you’re feeling depleted or overwhelmed, please speak up & reach out.
WATCH Lisa to be inspired to get support.
