FRIDAY FIVE: Five good reasons you should definitely give freelancing a whirl

THIS morning I realised that I have now been freelancing for four whole years. Four whole years of blood, sweat and freelancing tears! I can hardly believe it! I jest of course about the tears. In all honesty, it’s been rather incredible. I have spoken much about my love of freelancing before (see here and here) and today I can’t help but talk about it again, with it being my

A letter to women in abusive relationships – from a survivor, me

EVERY week in the UK two women are killed by a current or former male partner. Yesterday, I also discovered that around 30 women a DAY attempt suicide as a result of domestic violence. Chills your blood doesn’t it? As a woman who survived an abusive relationship in my late teens, I consider myself one of the lucky ones. But for the ones who aren’t so lucky at the moment,

STYLE: Swimwear that won’t break the bank (but will make you feel like a million dollars)

*Sponsored post WITH holiday season fast approaching, one of the things you may be looking to purchase in the forthcoming weeks, is new swimwear. Now, I don’t know about you, but as I much as I love pretty things and fabulous fashion, I’ll be damned if I’m going to spend a fortune on a bikini or a swimsuit that I’ll probably only wear a couple of times on holiday if

FRIDAY FIVE: What I learned from BritMums Live

I CAN’T help but find it ironic, that after attending my first blogging conference last weekend, I have been utterly rubbish at blogging this week. (This world works in funny ol’ ways doesn’t it?!) Anyhow, for those of you who may have missed all the excitement, last weekend saw me attend BritMums Live for the first time, kindly sponsored by the wonderful Yellow Mellon. (If you haven’t already, do check

FRIDAY FIVE: Twitter accounts you need to follow

I’M posting this super quickly before I jump into a taxi and head off to catch my train to London for BritMums Live! To say I’m excited is a bit of an understatement (I’m so looking forward to meeting new people and catching up with old blogging friends!) and rest assured I will definitely be filling you in on all the juicy gossip when I return. Anyway, with this in

Lessons from Elsie: When life knocks you down, you gotta get right back up again

IT feels almost ridiculous to be typing that my beautiful little girl will soon be turning two. But yet two she will indeed turn in just over a months’ time. Watching her develop into the spirited, inquisitive, clever, funny and all round wonderful girl that she is, has been and continues to be just a joy. Exhausting and difficult at times yes (toddlerdom is tricky!) but she really is just

LIFE: Looking forward to BritMums Live!

WITH the last few weeks whizzing by in a New York minute, I can hardly believe that in mere days I will be attending my first blogging conference and meeting up with some lovely blogging pals at Brit Mums Live. As the UK’s largest blogging conference, it’s safe to say that I’ve wanted to attend for a couple of years now and so, when a very kind freelancing client of
