Mom’s link to UIF 


Almost all too often I see Mom’s complaining on social media about UIF agency’s not playing their part or how disastrous the process of claiming UIF benefits  on your own while on maternity leave can be.I’ve just received my final UIF payment from the department of labour and I’m not even back at work yet! This is all due to the fantastic service I received from Mom’s Link to UIF.
The last thing you want to worry about while you on maternity leave is cash flow. We all want to spend as much at home with baby but in most cases we also need to make sure that we have enough to make ends meet. In my case I was able to stay home for four months, receiving a portion of my salary and the balance was claimed from the UIF. Thanks to Mom’s Link to UIF I received that balance each month and according to schedule.

Happy 4 months Aidan

 My little man is 4 months old today and what a journey it’s been thus far. We’ve had many ups and downs since he’s birth. From early sibling rivalry to RSV,  but today I am just happy that he is a happy and healthy baby! Alyssa has also overcome her feelings of anxiety towards her brother and now shows him so much affection. She calls him Aidy Baby 🙂

What I’ve been Pinning 

I’m sure there are many of you out there who may be slightly obsessed with Pinterest, just like I am!

It’s like my go to place before planning any party, before any hair makeover or for any decor inspiration just to name a few.

I’ve created a few boards lately for inspiration – one of which was for my recent hair makeover which really played a big outcome in my final decision of what to do! This was the pin which I showed the stylist at Style Bar before she got started and I think it was a great choice if I do say so myself. Point is – you have to go in with a plan 🙂

I’ve also created a board for some back to work outfit inspiration, called ” back to the grindstone”. With only 3 weeks left before I’m back in office and after spending 4 months in sweats and pj’s – LOTS of inspiration is needed.


I haven’t done a DIY project in a while but when we had our home renovated and when we restored an old dresser last year – Pinterest was definitely the source for inspiration.
