It’s already September, and in some parts of the country, kids have already started school – in fact, in Scotland, they even started mid-August. For parents too, the back-to-school feeling is back, even though you haven’t been back to school for a while! The sense of excitement and slight nervosity hits everyone, children, and parents together. The first ones because they are still discovering a new world – especially if this is their first time at the nursery or primary school – and the latter ones because they still remember how it felt. Keep your childhood memories at the back of your mind and get ready to be a super mama to nail this back to school season like no one else.
Get your Autumn style ready
Like with every back-to-school season, there’s a matching back-to-work fashion for women, which builds an elegant and professional-looking wardrobe. Except that it can be a little tricky for mothers to pick up on the latest fashion trends without breaking the bank. Raising children doesn’t come for free! But you could update your look to match the seasonal styles and colours with a handful of smart accessories instead. It’s a cost-effective way of keeping trendy with a tight budget. If you’re not happy with the idea of shopping your new fashion – especially if you need to get the kids ready for their new year at school. But you could get the autumnal look on your nails, a cost-effective way of keeping trendy. Have a look at Ms Mee collection of designs for inspiration. These are ideal for coffin nails, but they can give you a good idea of playful nail accessories to try out too.
You’ve got a busy time ahead
Let’s be honest: In September, you won’t have much time to yourself. In fact, the back-to-school lifestyle is about making sure that you can cope with the deadlines, appointments, and homework. Back-to-school time is synonymous with busy mums time , so make sure that you’re best equipped to handle it. If you spend a lot of time managing the household budget, you’ll find easier to work with a helpful app, Money Dashboard, to keep track of your expenses in one place – no more multiple passwords and logins to check your bank accounts, credit cards, and mortgage options!

Back to school, back to germs?
As a parent, you know how these things work: kids go to school, and within a few weeks they come back with a fever they’ve caught at school. So you should try to keep everyone healthy before the entire family is bed-ridden from a bug that your kid has brought back from school. Get the kids into good habits, washing their hands before meals is a good start, and so is the 2 minutes toothbrushing in the morning and before bed. Then, unfortunately, you should ditch the summer ice creams and switch the family diet to more greens, fibres, and healthy yoghurts so that the body is better equipped to fight off infections.
Get your family ready for the back-to-school season: From simple and cost-effective looks to healthy tips, you’ve got a lot to tackle this Autumn. But you can nail it and embrace this new adventure with your family safely.
