I’m keely! Welcome to thistrendymama.com. Born and raised in the UK I emigrated to Portugal in 2008 where I met and married a wonderful Portuguese Man. Recently I entered the world of motherhood giving birth to a beautiful baby boy and this is where my latest journey began of which I felt the need to share with others.
However not to be completely dull I also wanted to incorporate other aspects of my life and interests in the hope other mums out there can relate and share in my experiences along the way of what i can only describe as one wild ride. Gone are the nights of drinking to the small hours, the sky-high stiletto heels and freedoms of being spontaneous, Replaced with play dates, juggling multiple schedules and 4 outfit changes a day (that mainly me covered in food).
I’m a highly driven person who has a tendency to bite of more than I can chew, but who feels empowers with every challenge undertaken and hurled overcome. So as an operations director, mother of a boy under 1 with an ongoing house renovation and multiple side opportunities always ongoing, life is anything but dull, if not just a tad chaotic!
is a choice you make everyday to put someone else’s happiness and well-being ahead of your own, to teach the hard lessons, to do the right thing even when you’re not sure what the right thing is…
And to forgive yourself over and over again for doing everything wrong.
