Get out, get active this December!

December 17, 2017

  Both my husband and I (Kit) love adventure. We’ve both travelled to over 27 countries and we were THAT couple that woke at 6am every morning whilst on honeymoon in Bali in 2012, to go for a run {even in the rain one morning}. We love the outdoors, the sea, mountains, you name it..…

Review: Chevonne from Owl Photography

December 14, 2017

  In early November, we had the privilege of doing a Flourishing Fit Moms photoshoot in my parents’ garden, with the talented and lovely Chevonne Engels from Owl Photography.

The economical laid-back 2nd time mum

November 30, 2017

  38+ weeks of pregnancy couldn’t have come quickly enough for me (Robs), first and foremost because I literally suck at being pregnant. While on the outside it may appear that Ive got my glow on and that Im keeping active and everything is hunky dory, but this couldn’t be less true. As previously mentioned…

Se, tell us about you, your family and what excites you in life. My husband and I met after we had both lived, travelled, worked and experienced a fair amount of what life has to offer us so we both knew immediately that ‘this was it’! (I’m not sure it was love at FIRST sight…

We’re no fitness models

November 24, 2017

At our first photoshoot, our photographer suggested that we take off our tops in order to see our bumps (and bodies) better.
