My name is Jade, I’m a 28-year-old mum of two wonderful girls (Kairi and Naminé who are 3 and 5). We live in Ely with my husband Ryan and our Miniature Poodle Coco.
You can find more about our family over on the About Me page.
About the Blog
In 2014 I was planning our first family holiday abroad. My brain whizzed round with hundreds of questions. What was the law on breastfeeding in France? Would my girls be too young to ride anything in Disneyland? Could I get hold of nappies easy if I ran out? I took to Google but had no luck, the questions I really needed answering (like ‘What can my child ride at Disney?’) just didn’t have any answers out there yet.
Fortunately, our trip was amazing, we loved every second and came home excited to book more. However part of me felt sad that the countdown to our trip, the time that’s supposed to be exciting and fun, had been shadowed by this big black cloud of questions. It was then I knew I wanted to change this, I needed to share the information I know knew to stop other people from feeling this way.
So in early 2015 Mummies Waiting changed direction. I started writing new posts and filming vlogs with a passion to share my experiences and help others. What had started as blog to document my children’s lives had become a quest to help other parents enjoy every second of their own adventure.
Blog launched in 2011.
Own domain purchased December 2014.
Our readers are mums aged 18-34. They are looking for real-life reviews, information and ways to make their holiday and lives stress-free. Our readers depend on us to share our honest opinions on the products we review and places we visit. They enjoy learning new experiences through products reviews, personal stories and vlogs.
Meet Lucy (She’s our ideal reader)
Lucy Winters is 28 years old and Married to Tim. They live in Cornwall along with the 2 children Alex aged 6 and Marie aged 4. Lucy works part-time as a manager in retail and when she is not working she is spending time with her children and researching their next trip away, including what products to use.
Lucy loves to get away and will regularly have days out to a local zoo or city and snap lots of pictures to upload to Instagram. Her friends would tell you she will usually be found spending most of her time on Facebook, in parenting and Disney groups or ‘Whatsapp’ing them about the new products for the kids or travel that she has found. She doesn’t read books or magazines, but she does love to watch YouTube or relax with a hot chocolate and the Big Bang Theory in the evening while scrolling through facebook if her kids go to sleep early enough.
Mummies Waiting provides Lucy with advice and knowledge to make her trip one her family will remember forever and talk about again year after year.
This is a what I feel Lucy and her family look like.
Thinking about a Vlog or Story?
I love to do vlogs and stories to really show products off. A picture may say 1000 words, but a video can say so much more.
Here is our More 2 Explore – Adventure Belt day in the life. I wanted to show our followers exactly how helpful the belt can be with both children and how easy it is to use.
(Please note the video will be in portrait as it was shot straight to Instastories, Youtube videos or vlogs can be shot in landscape).

‘I saw a blog on spotted in Ely written by Jade and so then I went on to look at the Mummies Waiting web page. I took a brave step and then contacted Jade to see if she would be interested in attending my Mini Professors classes with her two young girls and write a blog on the classes. I hadn’t met Jade before but I was just starting my small business so thought it was worth an ask. Email communication flowed really well and the date was arranged for Jade and her girls Kairi and Naminé to attend my class. We met in person just before the class and it was a lovely encounter. Jade was very approachable and friendly and the girls quickly warmed to me. I had nothing to worry about Jade is lovely and her blogs are true to herself. She writes as she sees it and gives her open opinion of her experiences capturing both views from herself as an individual and also as mummy. I could see this in the blog she wrote about Mini Professors and can easily see it in other blogs she has written as well. I would definitely recommend Jade and Mummies Waiting!’ – Regina, Mini Professors
‘It was really nice working with Jade. The communication was easy. I also loved how she blogged our product. It was very informative in a way not to deceive the readers but rather give her honest opinion about it. Plus the photos were also great. It was a pleasure working with Jade.’ – Rachele, CozyPhones
