How to Balance Work Life and Family

Let us divert from melting wax and all (lol) This topic is very dear to my heart, so I thought to share it here today. Before I got married, I told myself when I start having children; I would love to be involved in their daily growth and development though I planned to work but then at my convenience.

Worklife:- My typical day at work required me to have and manage my business social media accounts (Instagram and Facebook) and building them to market my products; I handled the procurement of all materials and also production processes and delivery to customers; I was a one-woman supply chain. Family:- Besides my husband and myself,...

My Scented Story

Here I am staring at my laptop screen and wondering what I want my first blog post to be before the end of 2019, and then it hit me like a Thunderbolt; why not tell the story of how I got here. Being a mother of four, two step-children and two biological children; trying to balance work and family is the most chaotic job but the most gratifying if you could find a balance to it;  married for 4 years, I had to resign my day job - still not sure if quitting was the right thing at the time. We started shuttling countries trying to decide where to build a life, given my current family was based in the United Kingdom but had my 1st child in the United States and had a support system...
