In this exclusive interview, we catch up with Louise to find out more....
Q: What inspired you to write this now?There are a few reasons behind my decision to write this book now.
I feel I’ve finally reached a place of happiness and safety and have been able to look my life full in the face, lay bare my childhood and really think about what motherhood and indeed womanhood means to me.
I had a difficult and traumatic childhood, and there have been times where I’ve struggled to cope as an adult because of it.
Q: How do you juggle motherhood with managing your personal brand and working?
Q: You’ve openly expressed your concerns around your daughter using electronic devices, what are your tips for other parents?
Q: What’s your favourite fuss-free meal to rustle up for Darcy?
Q: Where do you stand on making mealtimes fun?
It's no secret that I'm not a great cook but I do like to have fun in the kitchen. The girls know I try my best and are used to my foodie fails. We laugh at them and if all else fails, there's food delivery haha!
Q: What advice do you have for other mummy bloggers out there?
The most important thing for any blogger or influencer is just to be authentic. Don’t try to emulate anyone else or sugarcoat what you’re writing about – people will see right through it and ultimately, it means you’re in it for the wrong reasons. Work out what you are passionate about and what you love sharing and then build content around that. Remember why you started and have fun!
