Banana Chat - meet Jade Rayment

by Banana Crumble | Jan 16, 2019

I’m Jade and I’m a mum of four young sprogs. My youngest child – Piper, has a condition called Septo Optic Dysplasia and is legally blind. Prior to having Piper I volunteered with the Ambulance service as a Community First Responder in my spare time and now I’m a full time carer to her. I’ve faced many of the challenges that motherhood throws at you  and I’m still learning something new every day. I’m a full time worrier, I turn to google too much and I research everything! I started a blog very shortly after Piper was diagnosed, it began as a diary but now it’s open for all to read.

Asides from that, I’m a total product junkie, I love the idea of transforming yourself  and I spend far too much time watching the CosmoQueens glam routines.
