Self-Care vs. Self-Care

There is a lot of talk about how we should be practising self-care. Super curated Instagram posts that show idyllic relaxation and this nearly unattainable zen that most women envy.

It’s an unhealthy expectation that we place upon ourselves to emulate the lives of Instagram influencers, that the average Jane can’t juggle between raising kids, having a career and just living her best life.


Sometimes self-care Sunday is a good book, a cup of tea and putting your kids in front of Frozen (for the millionth time), to regain control of your “self”.

There is no shame in not being able to create a lush lifestyle that took 3 hours to photograph, no one can REALLY live up to that anyway, right.

You do self-care the way you want to, boo boo.
