I can’t think of any better representation of beauty, chic and stylish than Mrs Ellis. Meet mama to Lenny and stylist Sarah Tankel Ellis.

what is the best advice you have been given on parenting? Everything is a phase! It really is true, I am wowed by the constant changes of my tiny little man!
How do you great balance between work and motherhood? Organisation is key… I have set days and times to do everything otherwise I would be a complete mess! And also a very supportive family who help me out so much.
what is your favourite meal to cook for the family? Sadly cooking isn’t my strongest skill but there’s nothing I love more than having my family over for a traditional friday night dinner. Chicken soup, roast chicken the lot!
what three items do you always have in your bag when out with your kids? Water wipes, lots of nappies & his favourite robot toy!
How would you describe your parenting style? Hands on & routined is what’s worked best for us. I love our daily schedule which is full of lots of play time & also sleep time!

what have you found to be the hardest part of your motherhood journey? For me it was the anxiety which I felt after giving birth, I literally had no clue what I was doing & after a difficult labour & an emergency caesarian I felt like a total mess but it’s amazing how your motherly instincts take over and you muddle through those early stages. Each day you learn so much & it gets that little bit easier.

what is the best part of motherhood? Everything! I’ve found it so hard but so rewarding at the same time, I love watching his daily developments and his personality taking shape. I never knew you I could love a little thing so much but Lenny has completed me & being a Mummy is the best thing in the world.
