The Work Trip

Ellyn Shepherd / Baby, Bloggity Blog / / 0 comments

I went to Sydney for work last week to pitch our new Winter collections to some existing clients. Sounds exciting? Well, it isn’t. Like, not really even a little bit. Travelling is a part of my job that I both love and yet intensely dislike all at the same time. And if you do it too for your job, you will know exactly what I mean. Yes it can be fun, but even short day trips are totally exhausting and hard work. And this trip was no exception. (more…)

What I Never Realised About Parenthood

Ellyn Shepherd / Bloggity Blog, Life / / 2 comments

Parenthood is one of those funny things. Super hilarious in fact. You think you know all there is to know about what it will be like when you become one, based on everything you have seen or heard over the span of your own life so far. Even though you kind of expect it to be “hard”, you have stuffed yourself full of so much confidence by the time you finally fall pregnant, that you strut completely into the role of a new parent like a smug parenty jerk. Pffft. More fool you. (more…)

How I Survived Going Back to Work

Ellyn Shepherd / Bloggity Blog, Mumma / / 0 comments

The time had come. I couldn’t avoid it any longer. I was going back to work. Sigh. Whyyyyyyyyyyyyy? I yelled, shaking my fist at the sky. Whyyyyyyyyyy must I go back? I mean, I just couldn’t understand why I couldn’t be surrounded by unlimited bucket loads of cash, and become a lady of leisure. It’s a totally reasonable request. (more…)

Mummy Needs A Day Off

Ellyn Shepherd / Bloggity Blog, Mumma / / 0 comments

I don’t know about you, but there are some days when I just want a freaking break. There may not be anything particularly wrong. I might even have been lucky enough to have gotten a full nights sleep the previous night. But some days I just want to stay in bed, pull the covers over my head and to not have to get up for anything or anyone. I just feel a desperate need to be lazy. (more…)

My Fitness Journey: Week 12 – The Woohoo Wedding Week!

Ellyn Shepherd / Bloggity Blog, Life / / 0 comments

Well. My fitness journey is over… Sort of. For the last twelve weeks I have been working hard (errrr, sometimes) and watching what I eat (with the exception of chocolate as you all know that I am absurdly addicted), in an effort to shed some kg’s and to start getting this baby body back into shape. The amazing wedding that represented my “I-better-bloody-well-be-a-skinny-mini-by-then” deadline has now come and gone. And the wedding was awesome. Yes, but did you reach your fitness goal, you ask? Well, keep reading and find out! (more…)

My Fitness Journey, Week 6- The Why Am I So Angry Week?

Ellyn Shepherd / Bloggity Blog, Life / / 0 comments

Well, its Week 6 of My Fitness Journey. Can you believe it? Half way through already?!! Woohoo! So, I started a new meal plan a week and a half ago as part of my 6 week Extreme Shredder program. Gawd, clean eating sounded so boring boring boring boring. But I got through the week without too much trouble. And as I mentioned in last weeks post, the recipes the program provided were actually pretty darn delicious!! Thank freaking goodness. Now my goal for THIS week was to reeeeeeally focus on doing it right and doing it without cheating. Like, at all. Not even a little cheating. PUT THAT SNICKERS DOWN GIRLFRIEND! (more…)

My Fitness Journey, Week Five-The Oh My God I’m Exhausted Week

Ellyn Shepherd / Bloggity Blog, Life / / 2 comments

Monday again, sigh. Week Five of my fitness journey has begun. Already. Get up lazy bones! Now that the baby is in bed, get up off that couch and get “Extreme Shredding” already!!! I had completed two days of Sally Matterson’s Extreme Shredder program by the time this new week rolled around and was feeling pretty good. And by pretty good I mean completely exhausted, but…well…good. And I thought that I was finally starting to see some results! Hip Hip Hooray! I mean, things still jiggle, but I am pretty sure they are jiggling just a little less than last week. Brilliant. Because I was starting to feel like Homer Simpson, whose belly fat doesn’t stop moving even when he is standing completely still. (more…)

The Fitness Journey, Week Three: Sore, so Sore.

Ellyn Shepherd / Bloggity Blog, Life / / 0 comments

So, we are now up to week three of my “Fitness Journey”. Weeks one and two sure left something to be desired, and yet I had laughingly high hopes for Week three. Now, I would reeealllllly like to say that I haven’t done anything downright stupid this last week at the gym, except that if I did so I would be completely lying. And those of you who actually know me would instantly know it for a downright lie because I ALWAYS seem to do something stupid at the gym. (more…)

The Fitness Journey, Week Two: The Christmas week.

Ellyn Shepherd / Bloggity Blog, Life / / 0 comments

Well, its safe to say that Week One of my “Fitness Journey” was a bit rubbish. Missed it? Read about it here! Ok, so Week One may have been rubbish, you say. But how did you go on Week Two? Well, to be honest with you, Week Two also started off pretty poorly, but I eventually found my groove so it ended with an absolute BANG! Woohoo! You Go Girlfriend (I creepily whisper to myself as I sit here, typing out my memories from the week that was)!! (more…)

Five Great Books For Babies That We Love

Ellyn Shepherd / Baby, Bloggity Blog, Mumma / / 2 comments

I love to read. I read as much as I can whenever I have the time, and love nothing more than losing myself in a really good book. I love being transported to a magical world where anything is possible, and stories that are so thrilling and mind boggling that my heart rate increases and I start to skim the pages, unable to move my eyes fast enough in my desperate rush to find out what happens next.
