Hello, I’m Natalie and welcome to This Sweet Life!
First and foremost I am a wife and stay at home Mother, who is now a blogger and writer. My son Ari is four, my daughter Chloe is two and I am currently pregnant with baby three. I met my gorgeous husband when I was 18 and together we have built a beautifully sweet life.
I created and designed this platform as my way of better serving my fellow Mamas. My dream is that it will be a place for you to come to, when you are searching for a sense of community, advice, recommendations or even just a simple recipe. My mission is to share the joys and craziness of Motherhood from a positive heart. This Sweet Life isn’t about my life, it’s about your life too, and creating a ‘sweet one.’ When you click onto my site I want you to feel greeted with a huge, warm hug.
So here is a bit of background information on me… Our family owns a residential construction company on the Sunshine Coast, Australia, which is where my love for interior styling and appreciation for beautiful spaces developed. I seem to have become an expert in turning a house into my dream home, as over the last few years we have moved a lot! With that said we are currently building our ‘forever home’ which is due to be completed in a couple of months. It will be a beautifully designed Palm Springs style home.
My family loves to travel the world and seeks adventure. Whether it is chasing the sun, sea or snow our happiest times are in new and exciting destinations as a family. Having been born in England I have been lucky enough to travel to over 35 countries and many of them more than once.
I am a huge lover fashion! I’ll be honest and tell you that somewhere between baby one and baby two I lost my mojo, but it’s back in full force and I am just loving having fun with fashion again! I believe the what we wear and how we feel had a huge influence on our confidence.
Earlier this year I wrote a book called Remember Mama. It’s a positivity poem written to spark joy in the lives of it’s reader, and has be beautifully illustrated. You can purchase my book under the Shop tab, and with every book sold a donation is made to PANDA to help support Mothers with PND.
As well as being designed to be a platform to serve you, my blog also serves as a personal journal for me! It’s a space for me to explore and discuss my love of motherhood, travel, fashion and interiors, and to write about my greatest passion – LIFE!
So go ahead and use this space as you please. Search for recipes, read through the experiences of myself and other mothers, look at our travel tips or browse fashion. If you love this space as much as I do, make sure you are following along on Instagram.
