9 top tips about Motherhood from Stylist Tori Ambler

Tori Ambler Fashion Stylist in Auckland new Zealand We're new friends, but something in the air tells me we'll be pals for life. This go-getting incredibly creative and talented lady Tori Ambler is the stylist behind our latest couple of shoots... oh and the Mum of 2 super cute twin toddlers! How she manages to juggle her passion for creative work in styling, motherhood, drop offs, pick ups, trips overseas for her husbands work oh, and always finding time to reply to my messages? It's beyond me. As we recently launched our range of pendants centered around this idea of Motherhood, and females strength, endless love and determination, there was no other human better to ask her hot tips on how it all works... Because she's got me stumped! 

1) 3 of the best tips you were given before becoming a Mum:
I actually got given some AMAZING advice just before I had the boys:

1. Breastfeeding isn’t always this easy, breezy thing it’s made out to be. It can be really hard, or for some impossible.

I was so grateful I’d been told that, as I had such a tough time breastfeeding

2. Set a time by which you’ll be showered and dressed EVERYDAY. My midwife told me this one and it was a game changer. She said so many mamas don’t make that time for themselves, sit in pajamas all day, and start to feel low.

3. Get a group chat of your fellow Mum mates, or other mums with similar aged babes. Me and 5 girlfriends started one when we were all pregnant and it was a life saver (still is). Any worries, frustrations (soooo many), laughs, questions, etc, throw it out there.

Three things I love most about being a mum:
1. They keep me fit! Now they’re 3, our days consist of bike rides, skateboards, walks, parks, wrestling, etc Every. Single. Day. Stuff I would never have done, ever. (No, you don't like to wrestle on the daily?!)

2. Their smell. Creepy? Maybe. When they’re asleep I smell their little necks 💔

3. Them. They’re amazing. Some days are horrific (toddlers can be HORRIBLE), but then they tell me ‘mister sun is here and it’s a beautiful day mama’, or they cuddle on the couch while picking their noses and it’s the best thing ever

3 places I can’t wait to take the boys:
1. Japan. It’s top of my list!!! They love the chaos of cities, so I assume they’ll be in heaven in Tokyo

2. Bali (again). Now they’re older I can’t wait to take them back

3. A white Christmas, undecided where. I’ve never had one either!

Deliciously crunchy, mostly healthy and a moreish treat, these nuts make for great gifts as well as to have on hand around Christmas time when lots of friends and family pop in to visit. You can add more of each spice and less of others depending on your personal preference, but be sure to whip the egg whites to perfection!

Organic Dyed Market Tote Bags by Luna & Rose sustainable and maintainable PrintI sit across from Rosie on the daily and her constant flow of ideas and inspiration continues to blow my mind. Never a dull moment, nor dull design, Rosie is always coming up with new initiatives or design ideas centred around sustainability. It’s obvious that her passion to run Luna & Rose in a ‘Sustainable & maintainable’ fashion runs deep and the constant desire to learn, create and act is her true passion.
