Hi, I’m Natalie…
I first started this blog, Mum in Brum, to keep my brain from going to mush during my first maternity leave – I naively thought that I might be short of things to do (ha!) and wanted to keep my brain active whilst talking gaga to my awesome baby girl.
Three years and another baby later, being a mum and writing this blog have both become more fulfilling than I ever expected. Being a mum is by far the best job I’ve ever had, and this venture turned into an award-winning parenting blog that I now make an income from. I’m not really sure when it happened, but somewhere along the way I got a little obsessed.
Aside from the blog I’m also a freelance PR consultant. I’ve worked within PR agencies for 10 years so know a thing or two about working with brands – and of course I’m a ‘PR friendly’ blogger!
I live in the West Midlands with my hubby, our toddler girl Taylor, baby boy Harry and cocker spaniel, Max – who still believes he is our first child.
Apart from recording my journey (and challenges!) as a mum, I also blog about our lives as a modern family, our travel adventures and my passion for interiors. We are currently renovating our home which we moved into into during summer 2017, so will be focusing heavily on this project over the next twelve months. I also share some of my experiences and tips for freelancing and those who want to make a living working from home.
Other than that, I’m a fan of the outdoors, all things Hygge and cooking…or perhaps it’s more the eating.
I hope you enjoy Mum in Brum and if you’d like to get in touch please do drop me a line at email@example.com You can read more info about collaboration opportunities here.
Thanks for visiting!
