{Girl Crush Tuesday} The Young Mummy

We have some pretty hard girl crushes. These are the types of ladies that stamp their style on the world. They are the type of people that will always be remembered and little girls grow up wanting to be. They are women of substance. Women that make the world a better place. Happy Girl Crush Tuesday everybody.line4Today we salute the honest, beautiful and creative Sophie Cachia – also known as The Young Mummy.

The main reason we love Sophie is because of her wonderfully brutal honesty. She is an excellent writer who shares the brilliance (and trials) of the everyday.

Sophie describes her writing as ‘boobs, pubes & all’ and she tries to keep it as real as possible. She shares her experiences as a mum, a wife and a young woman.

The thing that drew me to Sophie in the first place was her incredible honesty when she talks about her struggles with mental illness and in particular post-natal depression following the birth of her delightful son Bobby. I think the more people who give a voice to those who struggle, the easier it will be for people to seek help. I know she certainly helped me.

Sophie has transformed into a passionate crusader for many charities and given a voice to those who need it most.

One of the bravest things that Sophie has done was to share the birthing experience of her daughter Florence with the world. She shared contractions, the waiting, the pain with everyone and reminded each one of us just how powerful the female body can be.

Sophie is simply delightful and lights up my social media feed every day. We salute you Sophie for showing all little girls that a little honesty and a little bit of braveness can go a long way. Life may not be entirely perfect but it is certainly what you make of it.
