Mama Knows Best! The Best Advice We Ever Got From Our Own Mums

Remember rolling your eyes when your mama dished out the advice? Well, turns out most of those pearls of wisdom were definitely words to live by (ok and some were just hilarious..). We chatted to some of our mama friends about the things they remember their own mums telling them. Because mama always knows best, right?!

Kaya

Don’t compare yourself with other mums or your kids with other kids. Yours will crawl, walk, ditch the diapers when they’re ready – have you ever seen a child wearing nappies at school? Also, don’t eat or chew gum in the street – it’ll make you look cheap!

Bridie 

When I was moving to Dubai in my early twenties, my mum told me to, ‘say yes to every invite, party and opportunity and see which path it will lead you down’  I followed her advice and it hasn’t let me down yet!

Georgia 

Don’t go on motorbikes or skinny dip in the sea at night. Other than that, it’s up to you to make up your own mind what you do.

Sherine 

“Don’t smoke while walking, it looks trashy” — which I may not have always followed … but I think she was right.

Polly 

Just put a bit of slap (make up) on – you’ll feel much better.

Izzy 

Always give a firm handshake, not like wet lettuce.

Hannah

Always buy decent moisturizer and foundation – don’t skimp on these and everything else can be cheap. Oh and also when doing your make up – pick one to make a statement and go with eyes or lips, never both.

Victoria 

As a working mother you will feel guilty and it is a tough balance but know that you are doing an amazing job and that there is no perfect scenario.

Clare 

Get help in the house and make time for yourself at least once a month and The rest will fall into place.

LaLa

Buy nice or buy twice…..my husband doesn’t like it quite so much but I totally agree.

Anouk 

Invite the same number of kids to a party as the age they’re turning!!
