So, I love mum blogs… Obviously. That’s why I’ve started a blog myself. It’s therapeutic to write them and also to read them. There are literally hundreds of thousands out there. My Insta feed is more mum blogs than celebs at this stage but these are still my fave five ‘mummy bloggers’. I say ‘mummy bloggers’ in bunny ears (f*** is bunny ears even a thing, I was shit at English) because I’m unsure if I like the term, but we’ll save that for another day. All five of these kick-ass women are so different but each of them has a real, raw and honest take on motherhood. Plus, they’re all bloody hilarious and have a knack at making you feel like it’s OK not to be perfect… You know you’re following good people when you can 100% relate to them and feel like you’d be walking down the street and you’d feel so comfortable to approach them, you’d be all like “hey girlfriend, how’s the kids, how’s the hubby’ before remembering they have no idea who the F you are… anyway haha, if you’re in the search for a cool mum to follow and want to have a stalk I’ll list their social media below. Defs give them a follow, trust me, you won’t regret it.
Sophie Cachia – The Young Mummy
Sophie is an Australian VIC blogger and is probably the most well-known blogger I’m writing about. She is wife to AFL player Jaryd Cachia and together they have two beautiful children, Bobby and Florence AKA Flossy. Sophie is seriously hilarious. Following Sophie pretty much started my love for all this. She’s was so honest about pregnancy and she’s so honest about parenthood that you can’t help but feel like you know her. The thing about Sophie is she will show the glitz and glam of her lifestyle, and all of the beautiful events she goes to but then the very next day she’ll show herself with no makeup on, hair in a classic mum bun with Bobby literally sitting on her lap while she’s taking a shit. I LOVE HER!!! She always speaks up for what she believes in, recently speaking out against online Bullying (seriously, preach sister, nothing grinds my gears more than a keyboard warrior). You can tell she would do anything for the people she loves and you honestly can’t help but want to keep up with the Cachias. Give her a follow if you haven’t already, Sophie and the family also have epic dance battles, seriously, they have moves, what more could you want.
Mel Watts – The Modern Mumma
Mel is an Australian NSW blogger that I came across soon after I started my ‘mummy blogger’ obsession. Coming from a blended family myself, Mel is Blended family goals. She had her first son before her marriage to husband Nolan and I love how open and honest she is about her sons relationship with both of his dads. I also have an amazing step-dad who treats me the exact same as he does his own daughter, and is my father in every sense of the word so seeing the Watts clan and their relationships gave me instant admiration for Mel and her family. Together Mel and Nolan have two daughters, Ivie and Indie plus they have a baby on the way, with Mel being due pretty soon. So excited!!! Mel is also bloody hilarious and keeps it real about the struggles of parenthood, relationships and her journey through anxiety. Also, the sass level of her two daughters is the cutest thing you’ll see all day.
Jules Coffey – newmumstheword
Julia AKA Jules is an Australian NSW ‘Insta-mum’ her Instagram is just as good as a blog. I recently read an article that Jules wrote for House of White where she said she uses Instagram as a diary, which is true, her daily photos along with her story-like captions give us a detailed portrayal of her life as a mum. Jules is wife to husband Adam and together they have a super cute daughter Emmison and an adorable French bulldog named Willow, seriously, I want Hudson to have a little canine bestie after seeing Emmi and Willow together. Jules detailed instagram posts about motherhood honestly get me through my days. She keeps it real with the best and the worst moments of being a mum, she’ll show Emmi being the cutest thing ever, but she will also show the tantrums and the tears, which immediately makes her more relatable. She’s funny and she honestly seems like the loveliest person on the planet… Jules is also studying to become a Doula (a trained support person, who helps to empower women before, during and after their birth experience). Because I’m looking to go back to study myself I admire her balance of family and study and I honestly look forward to seeing her posts and seeing how she’s going for the day.
Jess Bovey – newmumclub
Jess is a NZ blogger that I found online after searching for ‘hospital bag essentials’ when I was almost due with Hudson (if you’re about to pop, check it out, it’s a really good list) she has a great online following but she also runs an online support group to about 12,000 mums which in itself is amazing. Jess is engaged to Reuben and together they have a son Baxter and new baby Lily… seriously, she’s one busy lady. Jess is also hilarious (I know I’m like a broken record but hey, they’re all funny). Jess’ decision to return to work when Baxter was a bit younger and her truthful telling of the struggles she had while giving up being a stay at home mum and returning to work made her easy to relate to and an inspiration for working mums everywhere.
Rebecca Keil – rockyandruby
Rebecca is a NZ blogger and is someone I randomly stumbled upon when I was scrolling mindlessly through Instagram. But I honestly love her, she’s the best. Rebecca is wife to husband Jared and together they have a son Rocky and a daughter Ruby. Rebecca is definitely the mum I want to go around and have yarns with. Seriously. I want to be her best friend. My only issue is that I’m defs not cool enough to be her friend and my yarns are shit haha. Her hilarious tales about motherhood and life in general has me in fits on the daily but at the same time she uses her platform to speak about important topics such as rape culture within the NZ community, she’s got the best of both worlds (bet you’ve got the Hannah Montana theme song in your head now, right?)… anyway… she’s one of my absolute favs. Like for real, I ain’t ever skipping her Instagram stories. Check her out.
These women are honestly all amazing and they inspire me to be a better person, mum and writer. Go check them out for yourselves and if you have any suggestions for mum blogs for me to check out, let me know.
Thanks for reading ✌️ xx
