Welcome to One Mum & A Little Lady – the home for mums (and dads, or anyone!) who are passionate about parenting, natural living and creating a more balanced family life they love.
Do You Dream of a Simpler, Happier & Healthier Family Life?
Life today is full of overwhelm & demands for our attention. This can make it hard to keep your family, work and health in balance.
One Mum & A Little Lady is all about inspiring and supporting you in finding more balance though:
- doable natural living lifestyle changes, including healthy (mostly!) recipes, DIY tutorials & healthy living tips
- simple (but powerful) parenting tips, which offer a more peaceful & natural approach to parenting

My Journey: From Overwhelm To Oh Yeah!
My name is Sarah and I became a mum to a wonderful & headstrong Little Lady at 40.
To that point I’d had a successful career in media (and consumed way too much beer & cheese & onion crisps and worried far too much about what I was wearing!).
Then one day something game changing happened at work and I walked out.
I didn’t know at the time that the decision would change my life for the better in so many ways.
As soon as I got off the 9 to 5 treadmill and took stock of my life, I realised how out of alignment my life had been. Not only had I been living in a constant state of overwhelm, I’d been fitting my daughter in around my life (not my life around my daughter), plus I’d lost sight of the things that really mattered. Sound familiar?
So I decided to change everything.
I ditched the 9 to 5, stopped defining myself by a ‘career’ I didn’t even like anymore and set the intention to work from home doing something I was passionate about.
Not only would this give me the flexibility to be the mum I actually wanted to be (not the overwhelmed one who at times resembled Cruella) it would give me more freedom, balance and fulfilment (things I wanted but where severely lacking).
I also started making lifestyle changes towards a healthier home, including making my own real food recipes and DIY natural care & beauty products.
Fast forward nearly two years and I’m earning a living online doing something I love, life is way healthier and much more in balance and I’ve got the space to be the parent I wanted to be (mostly anyway; Cruella De Ville still makes the odd appearance, but usually gets squashed back down again by my Little Lady, who is much wiser & smarter than I am!).
One Mum and a Little Lady Was Born
What I noticed on my journey, was that I wasn’t alone in wanting a more balanced life – I was actually just one of a huge, growing wave of parents who seemed increasingly fed up with the modern pressures on their work/family/life balance, who too were seeking to create a more conscious, healthy and balanced family life.
If this strikes a chord and you’re looking for simple, but effective parenting tips, healthy food and natural living ideas and legitimate work from home opportunities, but don’t have a tonne of time on your hands, you’re in exactly the right place.
Because One Mum & A Little Lady was created for you.
Whilst I don’t have all the answers, I really hope you’ll join me in the possibility of creating a healthier, more balanced family life you love, so we can see where it leads…
