Hello, and welcome to Lilypod and Sweetpea.  I’m Jess, a completely outnumbered step muma and muma of boys. My husband Pete and I live in Hampshire, UK, with my stepson Rhys (4) and two sons Jasper (3) and baby Bear born August 2016.

I started this blog as a way to document my first pregnancy as I was terrible at keeping a normal diary but it has now blossomed into so much more than that. It is now not only a place to share my ups and downs of modern motherhood but a community of helpful advice and support.

I chat all things parenting, travel, life and style with a recent passion for minimalism, positivity and natural living so if you’re in need of a bit of Monday morning motivation but every day – I hope I can help!

I also have my own Youtube channel I’d love for you to subscribe to and I’m a Channel Mum vlogger – you can find me on their website here

Thanks for stopping by!
