Hi I’m Leyla
And I want to welcome you to a safe space to share the stories that make us who we are today, the experiences that have shaped us in the past and the tips we’ve learned that will make our lives easier in the future.
Three years ago I started writing a blog. Challenges such as IVF, creating a happy home for three children under three years old and caring for babies suffering from a gastric disease (reflux) gave me a determination to share the information that I learned with people going through the same life challenges as me one day while hopefully making new friends along the way.
I started this journey on Instagram. I was approached by many truly wonderful parents who asked my advice on everything from c-sections to sleep schedules and I felt an overwhelming sense of pride and togetherness that my bumpy journey into motherhood was helping create a smoother transition for others while picking up so many helpful tips along the way too. The feedback I received inspired the blog that reached over 20,000 people in its first year.
More about me (if you want to know)
I lived in the UK for most of my life (aside from travelling with my husband for 18 months, what feels like a lifetime ago!) and we emigrated to Australia in 2016. We have three beautiful little children that we brought into the world within three years of each other (you’ll realise I don’t do things by halves!) after trying to conceive naturally for years, by taking the route of IVF.
I love cooking and my mixed English – Persian heritage inspires a lot of the meals I make for my family and is the reason I put all of our family favourites together in one place in the form of my Persian Recipe ebook. I love to keep fit (when I have the time!) and I love learning more about healthy living. I am a self-proclaimed product junkie! If there’s anything new out there that promises to make me look slimmer and my hair look fuller, there’s no doubt it will find it’s way onto my Amazon wishlist and through my front door faster than our kids manage to empty our biscuit tin!
I am beyond blessed that you have taken the time to join us today to celebrate life and the challenges that it sometimes throws at us.
Thank you for being here.
