Welcome to June's edition of the "A Day in the Life of a Mum" blog series. This month I got to interview the beautiful and talented Pinar from www.beautybakingbella.com.
Pinar is a full-time mum who spends her days running around after her children and blogging when she can. She loves to cook, bake and create new recipes for her blog. After having her second child, she discovered the gym and hasn't looked back since. Pinar attends the gym a few times a week, including a Pilates class ,which helps to keep her stress levels down especially after a busy day!
Pinar used to be a skincare consultant and makeup artist, so she is a massive beauty junkie with more beauty products than she knows what to do with. Her other hobbies include swimming, reading and meditation.
It's safe to say that Pinars day is bound to be a hectic one. Let's see what she had to say...
How old are your children?
My daughter is five and my son is two.
Describe their births in three words.
In three words between the two, my daughters birth was long and tiring, and my sons was quick.
What is usually the first thing you do when you wake up?
Wake my daughter to get ready for school.
In a small paragraph, tell me how your average day with your children goes to plan.
Cuddles in bed with the kids
Make and eat breakfast
Shoes and coats on
Walk to school
Back home and put a load of washing on
Depending on what day of the week it is, either food shopping, toddler sensory, play date, visit family members, day at home doing housework or play time with son (reading, blocks, colouring etc.)
Lunch then more play time
School pick up
Back home and get dinner on
Have some TV and play time followed by tidy up time
Bath time/bedtime routine - bath, pjs on and story time
Tuck each child into bed - kisses and cuddle
Off to sleep they go - and relax!

Where’s your favourite place to buy baby clothes?
What is your most treasured item from when your children were newborns?
Their teddy bears.

A huge thank you to Pinar for taking part in this month's blog!
If you’re a mummy blogger and would like to be a part of the “Day in the life of a Mum” monthly blog series, please get in touch.
My idea for this blog series is for it to bring lots of parents together, through tips and advice on the mad world that is parenthood. As well as gain an insight into the hectic lives of other mummies and daddies. You’ll soon learn that you’re not alone on this crazy rollercoaster ride!
