Everything I’m learning about being a parent

Hi! I’m Dani

Author of Dreaming in Satin and mom to 3 little girls. My academic and professional background are in Child Psychology, a field I truly began to understand after stepping into my role as a mom. Dreaming in Satin is a visual diary of my days in Motherhood living simply, creatively and more connected to what matters. This blog offers useful tips and insightful discussions about parenthood. I also share my favourite self- care practices and style inspiration. 

Welcome! I am so happy you are here!
