Advent Day 10 – Coffee & Cake At Kooks

BM Rock small

Today is the day we celebrate together at our Festive and Fab gathering. Come and join us for an exclusive £5 hot drink and cake offer at Kooks, North Laine.

Our readership has grown tremendously in 2015 and to thank everyone, we’ve organised a little get together to put faces to names   of our regular commenters and supporters. We have a brilliant speaker, Mary Meadows, the Badass Happy Life Coach – who has put together some words of wisdom to inspire balance and calm during the remaining weeks approaching Christmas.

Our aspiration for was to connect mums in the city who wanted time away from being ‘mum’ to read and share experiences which aren’t always relating to children. Parenting merely becomes another layer of our identity, it doesn’t replace it. So we focus on what the woman behind the mother is concerned with or indulges in! And that’s the way we will stay.

What’s more, we think Brighton mums are unique. We have never met a more creative, skilful and accomplished set of ladies in one community. Our little enclave by the sea brims with potential.
