I know, I know… where have we been?! I don’t mind telling you right round the houses a couple of times and back again. Firstly, I have to say a huge thank you to all you amazingly wonderful instagrammers that use our #Lionessmama community hashtag, even during our absence. Did you know, we now have over 17,000 link ups which is just incredible. For those who don’t know what we’re about, we are a fast growing Instagram community that is all about the perfectly imperfect. Yes perfectly airbrushed and edited photos are wonderful and we are delighted to see them BUT we also love those that have come straight off your ever faithful camera phone showing a moment you adore that you managed to capture… even if it is a little blurry round the edges. For those who haven’t noticed, I feature a #Lionessmama image on my Instagram stories each and every day tagging the wonderful instagrammers picture in the process but it is over here in our round-up that I have been a little slack for which I apologise – Jade of The Parenting Jungle (my co-host) has an excuse as a few weeks ago she welcomed her beautiful baby Norah into the world. So, enough with the rabbiting on, here is my #LionessMama round-up for March…
When looking for what posts to choose, I never look for anything specific. I go through and look at them all and it is literally ones that jump out at me or make me go aww or feel like they are soup for the soul – I know really technical aren’t I?! So, let’s take a look at March’s featured images…
This gorgeous little prima ballerina in the making comesfrom EssexKate over on Instagram. No prizes for guessing why I chose this picture. It’s how I imagine my inner child to look most of the time if I’m honest.
I couldn’t let a March round-up pass us by without featuring something from the Beast from the East aka all that snow! It is also nice to see one of our LionDada’s featured too as of course they are always welcome. This shot comes from DevonMamaOnlineover on Instagram and is one of several beautiful shots.
This picture literally say out loud “Yes mama!” and also go searching for where I can get Alyssa one of these t-shirts. It’s so important we raise strong, feisty independent women to help continue shaping our world and that is exactly what Kelly from Bringing Up Georgia is doing – I also love love her Instagram feed… #justsayin
So many of my friends and also so many members of the blogging community are currently pregnant or having babies and I have to say I am loving all the baby spam though it’s doing nothing for my ovaries I’m telling you. Love this picture from Treasure Every Momentwho’s second little one is growing up so fast. What a very SPRING photo.
This photograph really made me laugh as it reminds me so much of what my sister and I were like together as children. We had such a love hate relationship though no one but our mother really knew that. I think we just liked winding each other up. This sticking tongues out shot comes from Little Ladies Big World over on Instagram which was a new account for me to enjoy!
So when it hasn’t been raining this month it has been pouring, interspersed with a random minute of sunshine here and there. This picture from Super Busy Mum completely sums up March for me but I also really love the yellow raincoat in fact I may have a little bit of anorak envy here! Plus I’d quite like that brolly too!
Continuing on with the baby spam, although she is not really a baby I just couldn’t resist this little sleeping cutie pie?1 How adorable is she? This picture comes from Living with Liland is just utterly beautiful. I always think sleeping children just look so angelic and peaceful – probably because they aren’t like that during the day!
Finally, finishing off my March round-up with some outdoor adventuring. We spend so much of our time outdoors and having fun that I had to choose a shot that showed just that and this one from It’s A Gingerbread Life just sings of fun and good times outdoors and exploring.
I thought I’d end this round-up as I have all my others and that is with a photograph from my co-host’s feed, the lovely The Parenting Jungle. Obviously she has been a little quieter so I thought I’d share the main reason for that, so here is the beautiful Norah.
