five faves

flat out mum’s five faves!


Olivia, aka Flat Out Mum, kicks off our new series “five faves” whereby fabulous ladies take us on a virtual tour of their favourite local places. Both a great way to promote local businesses (which I love) and find new places to have coffee and shop up a storm!

Olivia is indeed a Flat Out Mum. She is a mum to four boys, including identical twins, and partner to Shane Crawford, so we can safely assume life is always crazy for this gorgeous lady. She also has her own blog and online shop which is chock full of handy mum life items. I first came across Olivia when scrolling through insta and saw a pic of her sporting the most ah-mazing pair of flamingo Soludos. It was girl crush at first insta sighting given her love of flats and coffee!! Aside from our mutual love of these two things, I love that Olivia makes a big deal of the fact we are more than mums, something I personally have struggled to see at times and see other new mums go through as well. Becoming a mum and being a mum is a massive part of who we are but it is NOT all we are. Flat Out Mum is a celebration of this and a place where we can celebrate both the mum’ness and the other’ness of ourselves. I could not think of a better lady to kick of this series…

so I asked and Olivia very generously agreed to share with us her five fave places! Thanks you lovely! xx

When I am not at home with the kids, I can be found at one of these places!

Thanks so much Olivia for sharing your fave places! And ladies, if you’re in the market for a new coffee cup, look no further…for the month of Feb (or while stocks last) Flat Out Mum coffee smartcups come with free beans or pods!!! I’m getting the yellow…and a Flat Out Mum coffee candle 😉
