HOW TO TAKE A DECENT SELFIE

BEFORE I begin, I feel I need to point out that I am no expert at selfies nor do I think I take the best ones. There are far more qualified people than me (like your supermodels for example) who do it MUCH better however, as a few people have commented on my selfie portraits, I reckon by all accounts, I don’t do too bad a job. Or so Vicki

50 THINGS I KNOW ABOUT MOTHERHOOD

I CAN hardly believe it but it’s true, my beautiful girl will turn two years of age in just a few days time. Just where oh where did my baby go?! As I prepare for Elsie’s birthday celebrations (she’s only requested that I make her a Raa Raa cake people, help!) I’ve also been thinking about the parenting journey that I’ve been on over the past couple of years. When

A QUICK THANK YOU & AND SOME HELPFUL DOMESTIC ABUSE LINKS

OK, I’m a day late, but with a poorly toddler to look after, what can you do?!  Thank you to EVERYONE who commented on or shared my open letter to women in abusive relationships last week. It was a post that I’d wanted to write for a while and in all honesty, one that I was very fearful of posting. Hitting that publish button took me a few seconds and

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: Things I’ve learnt and loved this week

IT’S Friday! So it is of course time for another Friday Five! Is it me or are the weeks absolutely whizzing by at the moment?! Anyhow…for today’s post I am back with my second vlog! Yes folks, after the lovely reaction I received to my first ever vlog (if you missed it, you can catch me here talking about THE book that changed my life) I’ve been inspired to keep

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
