I’m a Victim of Sexual Abuse but I Don’t Have a Voice 

Towards the end of 2017, a number of high profile men in the show business industry were in the media due to allegations of sexual assault and harassment over a number of years. These allegations led to sexual assault and abuse being talked about more openly, not just by those who had been affected by the high profile cases being splashed across newspapers and social media, but by everyday women...

Mummy Mondays – How I Balance Blogging with Motherhood

I’ve loved to write ever since I was a child. When I was at school I would make up my own magazines complete with features and even an agony aunt section. I wrote my first short story aged 14 and I have had dreams of being published ever since. Blogging has been amazing at giving me an outlet. Through my blog I’ve had the chance to collaborate with some amazing...

Valentines Gift Guide – For Him

It’s that time of year again, when people firmly place themselves in one of two camps. There’s the people, like myself, who love Valentine’s Day and all it stands for, and there are those people who don’t agree with it, which is fine, but if you’re one of those people you might want to look away from this post.. Valentine’s Day, for me, is the perfect opportunity to show that...

Beauty – StylPro Brush Cleaner Review

I remember seeing a post by Chloe at Lady Writes Blog a little while before Christmas where she featured the StylPro Brush Cleaner and I thought to myself ‘I have to have that’.

Wedding Wednesday – Tips on Planning Your Dream Honeymoon

You may have seen my post a couple of weeks ago when I mentioned we were finally booking our honeymoon, having got married back in September.

This has its own negatives, as I am terrified of flying long haul, but...

My Experience of the Mirena Coil – One Year On

It has now been a whole year since I had the Mirena coil fitted and I thought I would do a little follow up post on my experiences after a very rocky start with it last year. After this awful start, I was seriously considering having it removed, when things started to settle down a few months in and over the summer, I was finally able to relax. I was...

Mummy Mondays – Getting Back my Get up and Go with Giggle Knickers

As a mum of three, my pelvic floor isn’t exactly what it used to be. As much as I know how important the exercises are, more often than not I forget to do them and after putting my body through three pregnancies over the past eight years, it’s hardly surprising it’s not up to shape lately. Having spoken to other mums, I know I’m not the only one facing this...

Five Things to Do Right Now to Declutter 

I don’t know what it is about January, but the fresh start to the year seems to make me want to get rid of all the clutter and start anew. A couple of weeks ago I spoke about how to feel more productive this month, and one of the suggestions was to declutter. Decluttering your home is something which has grown in popularity over the past few years, with some...
