BEFORE I HAD ELSIE…

IT’S Elsie’s 3rd birthday today! *beams* Watching your child grow older is a funny ol’ bittersweet thing. In some ways it feels like the past three years has gone by in a blink of an eye. In others, it feels like I’ve packed more into the past three years than I have in the last thirty! I really wanted to write something to celebrate Elsie’s birthday, and so when I

GIFT IDEAS FOR DEVOTED DADS

SOMETIMES when I see my husband with my little girl Elsie, I want to cry. Because as Dads go, let me tell you, he is something else. Kind, patient, loving, funny and totally and utterly devoted, I could not have wished or hoped for a better Dad for my daughter. His love for her is so evident and a total and utter joy to behold. In fact, as corny as

Why you should (mostly) ignore your critics

WHEN I said I was going to be a journalist one day,  I was told that I was foolish and that it was NEVER going to happen. But yet it did. When I signed up to a modelling agency at 18 but didn’t quite make the cut, I was told that particular ambition was probably over. Only for me to become a cover girl in my thirties. When I left my

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,

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

FRIDAY FIVE: Wise words to live by from one of the wisest women I’ve ever known

AS it’s International Women’s Day tomorrow, I wanted to do a special post to honour the occasion. Last year I wrote about how to be a better ‘sister‘ but this year, I was a little bit stuck for ideas. Finally, after wracking my brains over what to write, I had a brain wave. What better way to celebrate International Women’s Day than to celebrate one remarkable woman by sharing some of her very

FRIDAY FIVE: Five things I know about love…

OK, so you didn’t really expect me not to cover ‘love’ today did you? I mean really, how can I not?! Love is what makes the world go round and creates lots of beautiful babies after all. At 34 years of age, I am, by no stretch of the imagination, a love guru. No, no, no. But like most of us, I’ve loved, been loved and had my heart absolutely

LIFE: Ladies, when it comes to other women, do you empower or compete?

LAST night I was scrolling down my Instagram feed when I came across this phrase. I loved it immediately because of it’s simplicity and it’s brilliance. I mean, it’s just so true isn’t it? As a woman in her thirties, I like to think that when it comes to supporting, encouraging and inspiring my fellow sisters I’ve got things covered. Indeed, really I guess that this is what my blog
