#HotLikeAMother : Aberdeen’s Interiors & Architecture Queen Lindsey Hesketh
#HotLikeAMother is the new blog series created by Confidently Kylie that looks to break the barriers and expectations of Motherhood. Too often we hear that when you become a mother you must conform and sacrifice who you are and become the perfect picture of a frumpy, homemaking woman of the 50’s. But I call Bull Shit. Society’s expectations often brings mothers down. Making them feel like they are no longer relevant. At Confidently Kylie, we are here to bring mothers up and inspire mums to embrace their inner fire.
In this series I will be interviewing and getting to know some of the UK’s most kick ass mums. From inspiring boss babes, to stylish fashionistas, to just damn right inspirational mothers. All in the quest to encourage mums to go for their passions and be Hot Like A Mother…….

I spoke to Lindsey to talk about how she juggles motherhood and her passions. As well as get some expert tips on being a Boss Mum.
How do you juggle the demands of motherhood together with running two businesses?
Do you have any daily habits or rituals that make your days more productive and manageable?
Both of your business are focussed on home & design. Why do you love interior design? Do you have a go to theme or style?
What are your to go places to buy home accessories? Any recommendations?
Mothers tend to always think about others while neglecting themselves. What do you do for your own self care?
How do you stay confident and happy in your own skin when juggling so much?
What is your go to modern mum outfit?
“A denim shirt, black jeans and converse. With a coloured lipstick. Sometimes I like a printed converse like a leopard print or something. I am not big on accessories. I tend to buy staple pieces such as earrings and stay with that”
Last but not least, what advice would you give to mums who would like to go after their dreams but are too scared?
“My advice would be to just be true to yourself. Go at your own pace and keep believing in yourself.”
