Pouting In Heels

Award-winning UK Parenting & Lifestyle Blog

Posts by KatieP


UNTIL you become a parent, you just don’t get it. You can’t get it. Parenting seems like the easiest, most natural thing in the world when you haven’t got a child. You see a kid throwing a tantrum in the supermarket and know exactly what the mum should be doing. You roll your eyes when you see a food splattered toddler in your local cafe (doesn’t that dad know he

BEAUTY may be more than skin deep but let’s face it we all look and feel better when our skin is looking its best. Besides the dreadful spotty teenage years, I’ve always been pretty happy with my skin. It’s generally been fine and has served me well. But motherhood and sleep deprivation have definitely taken their toll recently and as the years on my clock start to increase, I thought

Yorkshire delights and quality time

I TOOK some time off last week. Away from work and the blog (although I still managed to squeeze a few posts in) and what do you know?! It was rather bloomin’ lovely. Elsie, the husband and I had a family day out on Friday to go and see ‘some animals’. Although Elsie kept referring to it as the ‘farm’ it was a little more exciting than that (sorry sheep,

Two women who have lived, two women who are larger than life, two women in their sixties who are still as beautiful now as they were many years ago. Both women are

IT’S finally happening… In a few days Elsie will be all settled into her ‘big girl’ bedroom whilst I mourn the loss of her nursery and how quickly she seems to be growing up. (I know, it’s pathetic right but you just know there will be tears!) Elsie’s nursery was the first room we did up in our new house because – crazy people that we are – we moved

ChattyFeet: socks worth ‘chatting’ about

SPONSORED POST I HAVE a confession to make. I’m not really a fan of socks. I’ve always seen them as a boring necessity and never quite understood my husband’s love and devotion for the little foot warmers. (It’s definitely a man thing isn’t it?!) However, since becoming a mum, socks are something I’ve had to become a little giddier about. Because you know I’ve got an example to set. If

TOMORROW is Valentine’s Day. ( I know, I know, I’m sorry but just bear with me…) Anyway in the spirit of sharing some love on the ol’ blog and celebrating the silliest / most romantic / cringeworthy (you choose) day of the year, I’ve decided to break away from romantic love or talk of nookie and instead focus on motherhood. You see, on Tuesday morning, I was invited to speak
