TRYING FOR A BABY AND BEING ‘IN THE RED’

I CAN remember the days when I actually used to looked forward to my period arriving. (Kind of.) Back in my youth and in my twenties, when babies were not even on the bottom of a future ‘to do’ list. When being a mum wasn’t even on the agenda and I didn’t even know if I ever wanted it to be. “Thank goodness for that!” I would often silently exclaim

WIN AN ITEM OF BABY CLOTHING FROM DARLO (AND HELP FEED A CHILD AT INDIA AT THE SAME TIME)

NOW that I’m a parent, I have found that I’m much more passionate about trying to make the world a better place. A little corny perhaps but I’m deadly serious. Becoming a mum, having a child, exposes you to the greatest love that I believe any human being can experience. However it also exposes you further to the failings and cruelty that go on in the world. You look at

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

SASS: Daring to go bare (faced)

IT’S not like me to say no to a challenge. So when my blogger friend Mama and More challenged me to take part in the ‘I AM BEAUTIFUL’ link up hosted by Vodka Infused Lemonade and publish an image of myself , bare faced and make up free,  for the whole wide world to see, I couldn’t really refuse. (Damn it!) In all honesty, between you and I, I’d much

LESSONS FROM ELSIE: The gift of undivided attention

SOME of you may have noticed that there wasn’t a post from me on Monday. I like to try and post at least three times a week on Pouting In Heels. It’s a do-able amount for me (usually) and hopefully enough content for you guys to keep things interesting. Posting three times a week is something I try and stick with when I can, but this week I couldn’t do

FRIDAY FIVE: What I’m thankful for…

TODAY’S post is inspired by one of my favourite blogs, the lovely Florence Finds. Yesterday, the founder of the blog Rebecca, published a wonderful little post about being thankful for what we have in our lives – you can read it here – and because I loved it so much, I decided to do my own version for today’s Friday Five. Sometimes, we all just need a reminder of how

Pout Of Approval: From Babies With Love

WHEN you become a mother, it changes everything. I can still remember being told that when I was pregnant and I have to say, now I am a mummy myself, it is absolutely true. For instance, whereas before hearing any news stories of children being mistreated or abused would make me feel sick and upset, now I’m a mum, they literally break my heart. I just cannot bear to think of
