Whimsigirl x Nelissa Hilman In Her Shoes Mothers Day Campaign_1Describe a perfect Mother’s Day:
Long brunch with the whole family

One thing I wished I knew before becoming pregnant:
Load up on fibre and water. Unimaginable amount of fibre and water 😅

How has your style changed since becoming a mom?
These days I live in stretchy skirts and my husband’s shirts

Amirah’s wearing the La Dolce Vita (Leopard)

Describe your day-to-day routine: 
Morning chat with the bump – a round (or 5) of eency weency spider with my nieces – work – dinner with the family – more chats with the bump

What are the three mom essentials that you can’t live without?
– Lucas paw paw ointment
– black skirt
– linen shirt

Is there anything that you swear you’d never do as a mom that has gone out the window?
Chunky orthopaedic sandals

Things that get me through the day:
Coffee and looking forward to Thursday (because my weekend husband comes back on Thursdays 😊)

What’s your favourite thing to do with your child?
I love our morning and bedtime conversations the most…that’s pretty much the only thing we can do now haha

Whimsigirl x Nelissa Hilman In Her Shoes Mothers Day Campaign_3What is the one thing about your mom that you love most?
How she’s also a mom to my friends and cousins

How do you balance home and work life?
Still trying to figure this one out. My husband is away for work from Sunday to Thursday, and I work from Monday to Friday, so we try to squeeze as much quality time (with each other & with both our families) as we can in that one full day we have on Saturdays and those few hours in between errands. I’m blessed that he understands and supports what I do and it would be interesting to see how things pan out once the baby comes. Wish us luck!

What do you want your kids to remember about you?
That I will always be missing them. I actually cried when I realized that this baby is not going to be inside me anymore in a month’s time!

Did you have any traditions with your mom that you now share (or would like to share) with your child?
Porridge on Fridays! When my dad got his first paycheck, he sent some back to his parents. My late grandma used the money to make porridge so that everyone in their 20pax household could enjoy my dad’s first paycheck. My mom has been making porridge on Fridays for as long as I can remember.
