A pamper party, with bubbly? Um, YES PLEASE!
When an opportunity like this presents itself, you grab it and the bubbly with both hands! I gathered a bunch of delicious treats, invited over some of my fave #girlbosses and we got started on the incredibly difficult job of being pampered…
New Zealand is a smaaaaall place – 2 degrees separation and all that.
Sometimes life takes you places you never even knew existed. You meet incredible people on that journey, and then wonder how you ever survived without them before!
3 years ago, (holy hell has it been THAT long??) during my time as a stay-at-home/work-from-home mum (running Little Black Fox and Mum Made) I literally fell into the BEST Mumtrepreneur network group, thanks to some wonderful business partners I befriended through Mum Made. From there, I’ve met some AMAZING and inspiring women in business, a lot of whom I now call friends. We love to support local, so many of these ladies are still a big part of our daily lives (and our latest business venture)…
Basically what happened is, back in June, I entered this selfie in competition over at Katrina Williams Feather Touch Brow Design for the title of worst eyebrows…or in my case, NO eyebrows! (That’s Tammy with perfect eyebrows next to me, and Maria lurking in the background also with perfect eyebrows!).
Like so many mums, spending time and money on yourself never seems to rank highly as a proirity, so I jumped at the opportunity but there were so many people entering to win the microblading sessions with Katrina that I kind of wrote it off… Until one night, my Facebook notifications went crazy with people congratulating me for being one of the lucky winners!
Have you ever heard the saying “no man is an island”?
I never really understood it until just recently.
For as long as I can remember, I was so determined to do everything myself and I couldn’t/wouldn’t/didn’t ask for help. It was lots of hard work and I still felt like I wasn’t moving forward, felt like something was “off” – like I wasn’t where I ‘should’ be. It’s a weird feeling that’s hard to describe…stagnant, a bit ground-hog-day (am I showing my age?!) and sometimes a bit lonely. Have you ever been there?
Who are the Foxes? This is a long-overdue introduction!
I’m Jenni, stay-at-home-mum to 2, and wifey to Mr Fox.
We live on the beautiful North Shore of Auckland, New Zealand.
These are my ramblings on life, and the things I love.
Is the grass really greener?
I’ve been on both sides of the fence, and all I have to say is: everything comes with a price.
