Tips for Going Self Employed as a Blogger

I’ve been planning on writing this post for a few weeks and never get round to it because, ironically, I now have a fair few collaborative and sponsored posts that I feel I need to prioritise, meaning that some of my more off the cuff posts have been pushed to the back of the queue. See, although I have been blogging now for over seven years, it wasn’t until the...

Mummy Mondays – Ending our Breastfeeding Journey at 19 Months

I first planned to write this post on our return from Mexico back in April. Having been away from Benjamin for ten days, I figured that my body would have stopped producing milk, and that Benjamin would have stopped being interested in feeding from me by the time I returned.

How to Deal with Hair Loss

I’ve suffered with postpartum hair loss with all three of the kids, but after having Benjamin my hair loss has been more significant than in the past.

In a bid to avoid any...

What I’ve Been Reading this Month – April

It turns out that staying in an all-inclusive resort without kids is the perfect excuse to catch up on your reading. I definitely have a preferred genre at the moment, that being psychological thrillers, but I wanted something less heavy as well, and I couldn’t go...

5 Things I Have Planned to Celebrate My Birthday

I turn 29 in just under a month’s time on May 2nd. This birthday seems quite significant as it marks the last year of my twenties, and I am feeling a little apprehensive. For this reason, and the fact that I always love to spread my birthday out for as long as physically possible, I am celebrating across two weeks. There is another reason. Ed has a martial arts course...
