The 'Made In Chelsea' star - who has daughter Sienna with her husband Hugo Taylor - admits she's finding it hard to balance being a mother to her little girl as well as updating her followers on Instagram.

She said: "Recently I have been struggling to juggle both motherhood and the time I spend online. I am often conscious that social media can be seen as a platform that allows the unrealistic depiction of people's lives to be shared; however, I am proud of the community it has allowed me to create, and the opportunities it has brought me. Used in the right way, it is an incredibly powerful tool. It was my intention to have a space that allowed me to communicate authentically with like minded women, and I feel so lucky to have a platform that I can share my journey on, as I navigate through life and motherhood. Being able to support other women, is a great privilege, and without social media, I would not be able to do this."

And the 31-year-old reality star is trying to dedicate some time to being off her phone to get the "right balance".

Writing a lengthy post on Instagram, she added: "
I don’t want Sienna to grow up with me always on my phone, being online is my job, so it’s hard to differentiate life and work sometimes. I know that I have to make a conscious decision to put down my phone and create those boundaries, as I can’t just log off a computer, shut my office door, forget about work and put my mummy hat on. I’m sure you mummy’s out there feel the same, with nearly all of us working from home, it can be hard to leave work behind especially when you’ve had a tough day. It’s about finding the right balance between the two, we’re not robots, we are only human, we can only try our best. I’m trying to have a day at the weekend without my phone, as well as engrossing myself into more books before bed, instead of being on my phone, and getting stuck in that well known 'scroll hole.'"
