Story of Mum "Mama Self-Care" Carnival

DIY Mamas' Retreat Kit - Mama Self Care CarnivalWe're celebrating the launch of our DIY Mamas' Retreat Kits with a blogging carnival from 12 to 31 March reminding mamas to make time to look after ourselves...

We kicked off all the fun at our #somum Make Date on twitter (find out what we got up to here!). From 13 to 31 March, we're sharing links to some fabulous posts about self-care for mums from bloggers all over the world.

Because we all need reminding. That making time for YOU is vital, mama.

To nurture your children, you first have to nurture yourself.

Don't put off self-care, jump in and get your kit now.
