Earlier this week, the lovely Lisa from Mummascribbles tagged me in The (not big or fat quiz) of the year. Lisa has been one of my favourite bloggers and best blogging buddies for quite a while. She is truly lovely. But she is also a brilliant writer. She wrote this fabulous letter to her first born son recently and I am sure it is a post that resonates with all parents of more than one child. For the past two years,…

They were the very wise words of my wonderful Great Uncle David. In the past few days this phrase has been running through my mind. On Wednesday 9th November 2016, I woke up to a world that I didn't recognise.…

Role models, feminism and blogging

Follow my blog with Bloglovin  Zoella was one of the first blogs I read.   Zoe Suggs, the woman behind Zoella, came across as a sweet and lovely 24 year-old with an interest in fashion and beauty. I warmed to her personality, quirkiness and writing style. She covered topics that I found interesting. I enjoyed her sweet friendship with fellow blogger Louise at Sprinkle of Glitter. And I admired the honest way she wrote about her struggles with anxiety. Zoella…
