Hello! I’m Aranda, a new mum over 40 and self-care blogger living in the North East of England. As mum to Cyrus, now aged four, I have a full-time PR job and a hectic social life. I am also accused of burning the candle at both ends by my Persian husband, H.
Saffron and Cyrus was born as a way of indulging my passion for creativity in my rare hours of me-time. It’s somewhere I can write about the multicultural aspects of our family life.
I love writing about family adventures, kids stuff, food, pregnancy, parenting, health and wellbeing. All of this has come together to create my own little lifestyle destination. I hope our family blog will be somewhere you can visit for tips, tricks and inspiration.
Let’s get social!
Why is the blog called Saffron and Cyrus?
Saffron and Cyrus is a cheeky nod to my son, Cyrus and the Persian spice saffron, which are both at the heart of my work. I love drinking saffron tea!
When did you start your blog?
I started the blog in 2016 on maternity leave with the notion to empower women 40-plus as I found very little positive support in Cyberspace when I was pregnant at 40. I could have done with knowing there were others out there the same age, sharing similar experiences. From there, the rest is history.
Do you have a full-time job?
Yes, I do. I like to keep things super real. At this time, I’m not able to strictly blog – hopefully one day! Until then I just make it work. I’ve written a blog post on my work and how I balance life if you want to find out more.
