Social Media is full of an incredible amount of inspiration, jaw-dropping imagery, and incredible content. It guides you on the BEST places to shop, the right people to follow, and changes at a blink of an eye. Social media has its finger on the pulse faster than any other medium today, and we get to be ‘in the know’ through an ever-growing grapevine of women who lead this change in our information flow.
Personally, I am more of a Facebook gal. I am all about reading articles on my laptop rather than my I Phone. I am a proud Xennial Mum – not millennial and not old enough to be Gen X. But here I am with my brand shiny new brand on Instagram often feeling totally clueless.
Millions and millions of Millennial, Xennial and Gen XY Mums are hitting up Instagram for fashion inspo, parenting advice and hearing stories of women who let everything out through the Gram. These women and mums blog their everyday life, the good, the bad, the ugly, the crazy and keep us “regular folk” assured that we are not alone! #thestruggleisreal
Beautiful and perfectly curated images are what Instagram is all about. It grabs your attention one filter or boomerang at a time. I still haven’t done a boomerang or even tried to do a Live Vid. Am I too private a person? Probably – especially in the age of over-sharing and instant celebrity through viral videos and the ability to create hype in the most insane and crazy ways. Just watch a bit of Tik Tok to see what creates virality in today’s virtual social world.
When you take a deep dive in and read some of these incredible women’s stories, you quickly see that it’s not always the perfect life. Real women with real-life problems sharing – sharing from the very depths of their hearts the struggles they go through. Whether they are a single mamma like me, or perhaps going through the insanity of trying to have a baby against all odds, globe-trotting the world with a large and super young family in tow, these mummy bloggers are making a HUGE global splash creating content that we would otherwise not have access to. The every day mamma sharing and relating to all the other everyday mammas.
Authenticity is KING (or QUEEN) – making yourself relatable, honest, sharing those funny – crazy moments in our motherhood journey, their tips, tricks, styles, and the everyday life and struggle.
We have done a little deep dive ourselves into the Mum Blogosphere, and come up with a list of our favourite Mum Bloggers on Instagram that are TOTALLY worth following! Check these mamas out!
Zoe at @thesubtlemummy
The Subtle Mummy is anything but, she tells it like it is with #nofilter (ok she uses a few).
Zoe is a mother of two, a beautiful girl and boy and she adores sharing topics about the taboo subjects that come with motherhood. Zoe does not take life too seriously because she believes that life is as fun as you make it, and if that means pranking her husband on a daily basis, she takes that opportunity! Her hubby pranks honestly leave me in tears of laughter.
Zoe is fun, honest and a real jokester, delivering so much entertainment through her stories and everyday life, but she is also kind-hearted, down to earth and shows the hardships life can sometimes bring.
We love working with Zoe and her eyelash for days Ambrosia who rocks our jewellery so fabulously!

These are just a handful of our favourite Australian mummy bloggers on Instagram that we love following for inspiration, motivation, humour and relating to fellow business mums out there!
Being able to connect with other mums, going through the same motions of motherhood, is what inspired the launch of My Littler Silver. Running a business, juggling life as a single Mum, and building something that is completely my own is a tough gig, but the end game is something truly beautiful – and that’s being an inspirational mother and businesswoman for my kids, and continually creating an ethos and brand I am very proud of. Yes, there are daily hurdles and yes, it’s a jungle, but it’s my journey and it’s my story to tell. I am still not ready to boomerang (or know how), nor do I even know how to use ITV or Tik Tok (or Instagram filters for that matter), but I will get there, and know there are many mum bloggers out there that do it way better than me, whilst entertaining me and millions of other Mums in the process.
Sending Love & Hugs xx
