Sorry guys, I know that I keep banging on about how much I just love being a blogger and how working as a freelance social media manager is THE BEST thing that happened to me career-wise, blah blah blah…but for me it really is the perfect job. I get to work at something that I love and enjoy, however, I can prioritise being a Mum…

I wrote a post last week about why I’m getting back into the art of blogging again; i.e. why my blog is still important to me and how I think ‘the blog’ still has a role to play in todays modern way of taking in information. It was actually really nice to get so much great feedback on the post – and, more importantly –…

“Did you ever stop?” I hear you say. Well no, not really. In the 3.5 years that I have now been blogging I’ve never really taken a long break at all. I think I have still blogged nearly every week. However, over the last 6 months or so my blog content has become much shorter, less ‘chatty’ and predominantly sponsored – and the reason that…

When I started this blog 3.5 years ago blogging wasn’t really a ‘big thing’. People certainly weren’t aiming for it as a career choice, nor were many making much money out of it. Mine wasn’t very polished at all and was simply the trials & tribulations of raising 1-and-a-half-year-old boy & girl twins. Totally focused on parenting matters because that was my entire life at…

Something rather big is happening in my life in just a matter of a few weeks time. Something pretty nerve-wracking, daunting, emotional…and yet extremely exciting too. In the first week of September 2017 my beautiful twins Harry & Lottie will be starting school – full-time – heading into reception class for their first primary school year. Part of me wants to hide under my duvet…

When I started my blog over 3 years ago it was mostly bloggers who read other blogs. Within parenting blogging there were only really a few super-popular bloggers at that time whose blog posts went viral or who won all the awards! No-one had really started getting book deals or TV adverts or having super-star status on Instagram. In fact, Instagram wasn’t really even a…

Harry & Lottie – my baby twins – have grown up in what feels like an absolute flash. One minute we were bringing them home from hospital, guiding, nurturing them both through newborn nights, teething, growth spurts, weaning, toddling and preschool…and now they are skipping off to reception class in a couple of months. All. The. Emotions. And the AMOUNT of people saying to me…

My friend and I were texting each other the other day about Emma Hill’s Instagram Stories. She is stylish, friendly, warm and absolutely hilarious on camera – and we are both transfixed with everything she says. And she’s not the only one that I’m currently hooked on watching. I love catching up with my favourites at the end of a busy day and seeing a little…
