12. How to know if you are not drinking enough water

13. Wedding Photographer, Hannah Stanley is furious at the girl who ruins the perfect Wedding shot with her phone.

To the girl with the iPhone …

Not only did you ruin my shot, but you took this moment away from the groom, father of the bride, and the bride. What exactly do you plan on doing with that photo? Honestly. Are you going to print it out? Save it? Look at it every day? No. You’re not. But my bride would have printed this photo, looked at it often and reminisced over this moment as her dad walked her down the aisle on her wedding day. But instead, you wanted to take a photo with your phone, blocking my view, and taking a photo that you will not use.

Guests, please stop viewing weddings you attend through a screen but instead turn OFF your phone, and enjoy the ceremony. You are important to the bride and groom, you would not be attending the wedding otherwise. So please, let me do my job, and you just sit back, relax and enjoy this once in a lifetime moment.”

14. This post made me deeply sad.

15. This reader’s comment on Tips for mummy bloggers was so awwwwwwwn.

Lol… Oh Esther. This felt like a therapy session. Trust me, as a Mom of 3 kids under 5 years, I see “weeeeen”. What you said is spot on. People don’t even understand how I stress myself with the blog when I’m stressed with Mom duties but we have to work with what’s/ who’s in our lives. I niched down cos I noticed I was in a phase where I talked so much about family and yet finding my voice, so that’s what my blog’s about now; finding balance in life as a Millennial mom. I loved this post so much. It was a fun read.

And I checked out her blog, it is so cool.
