Start Here

Hi! Welcome to Caffeine and Fairydust. I am so glad you decided to drop by…


Caffeine and Fairydust is a lifestyle and parenting blog that was created in 2014 as a way to document my journey through this shit storm called parenting. I started it as a way to connect with other like-minded moms, and to feel a little less alone. I did not fit into the perfect parent category and I could never master the monochrome flat lay baby photo’s… so I started my own tribe – and here you are. If it’s your first time here, I get that all of the information can be a little overwhelming, so I’ve created this page, with some of my best articles, to get you started. Grab a cup of tea or coffee, or a glass of wine (or wine in a coffee cup)…


1. If we are going to take this to the next level, you should probably get to know us first….

So that’s the four of us, luckily my husband has since shaved his beard (can I get a whoop whoop?). You can get to know us by clicking on the below links…

I try to answer every email and comment we receive so if there’s something you want to tell us, good, bad or ugly – Let me know! I will answer your questions to the best of my ability – just be patient as there’s only one of me and I am outnumbered by children.
