SPONSORED POST: iZettle prove dreams really can come true

  AS a proud freelance writer /PR  and blogger, I always do my best to try and support other small businesses. Why? Well firstly I do it out of solidarity with my fellow self employed comrades and secondly, well, because in my opinion and from personal experience, you just get a much better service from smaller businesses. There’s no doubt about it. We care more. We go the extra mile.

WIN a set of 10 gorgeous baby bibs from Funky Giraffe

AH bibs, what would we do without them? I mean, mums (and dads) can you imagine?! There’s no doubt about it, being a baby or a toddler is a messy ol’ game but thankfully these days, life is a little earlier for us parents thanks to the amazing choice of bibs that is now available. When you’re a little one, you’re practically bibbed up most of the day which is

35 ‘rules’ for women to live by (created by me)

  TOMORROW is my birthday. There will be cards, presents (here’s hoping!), perhaps even some delicious cake. I’ve already partied with my dearest friends to celebrate and I’m looking forward to dragging out the celebrations for as long as I can with Elsie, Jamie (the husband) and family and friends this weekend. (Well you’ve just got to!) And I will be 35. Blimey. I don’t know why (perhaps because this

I’M pretty miffed today. In fact make that very. Why? Well because I’m getting sick to the back teeth of receiving emails from brands who are offering me the ‘opportunity of a lifetime’ to ‘work’ for them and spend my time and use my talents and experience on promoting them. For FREE. Yes FREE. Who works for free? Do you? Does your partner? Would you like your children to have

A little red dress and a corker of a statement necklace

ON Saturday night I painted the city red. (Kinda.) As part of early birthday celebrations (my big day is on Friday) I did a night of glamour in Leeds with some of my dearest pals. And I did it in a rather lovely red dress. I take absolutely no credit for finding this amazing dress from Matalan of all places! Nope, it was all the work of a dear Twitter

Ideas for Elsie’s big bedroom (and for other toddlers)

I’M not quite sure how it’s happened already but it has. Elsie has grown up and so it’s time to move my not-so wee cherub out of her nursery and give her a ‘proper’ bedroom. You know with lots of room to play, where she can let loose and throw her toys about. Currently Elsie is in a teeny tiny room. Which is fine and has been perfectly lovely (if

Tell YOUR story with a bespoke bracelet

LIKE most of us, I absolutely adore jewellery. But in particular, I love jewellery that tells a story, that shares who we are and what we are all about. Don’t get me wrong I love a good piece of costume jewellery as much as anyone else, but it’s the little trinkets that once belonged to my Gran, the pieces of jewellery that my husband has bought for me over the

How to get ready quickly in the morning (and look amazing for the rest of the day)

  OK super mums, today’s post is especially for you. Yep YOU! You there, who struggles to find 5 minutes in the morning for yourself,  as you battle sleep exhaustion and a hungry, cranky baby. You there, who has to battle getting the kids ready before you can even attempt to put on your battle face. You there, who would love to look and feel like a million dollars for
