Juggling being a Mum, Blogger and Business Owner – Can you have it all?

This isn’t something I’ve really written about before, yet being sat here, first week back at work, with my daughter enjoying an extra day in nursery (and me being wracked with guilt for the first two hours of the day) and a growing baby bump, I thought it seemed a fitting time to reflect. I’m a Mum, Blogger and Business Owner and I’m not quite sure when that all happened…

It’s been a gradual yet also sudden change in my life…I know that sounds strange doesn’t it? But it’s something I guess I’ve been making steps towards for years, perhaps without realising it, but then suddenly “bam”, it happens! I had my own limited company, a baby and this blog!Continue reading

Finding a New Confidence in My Body after Pregnancy

Ok so I don’t often go “deep” on here, but occasionally I have a bit of a personal revelation and I feel I should share it in case it resonates with even one other person out there in the world.

This one is about body confidence…or lack thereof…

I find it strange when people say that they think I’m confident. That they presume I’m strong and without insecurities. I take this as a compliment of course, but it’s far from the truth…in all walks of life really. But today I’m focusing on my body, my self-image, my self-confidence.

I’ll set the scene…Continue reading

My Tattoos – Why I got them, the pain and regrets

I now have 4 tattoos in total, my first one I naughtily got when I was 17 and is lovingly nicknamed my “tramp stamp” by my hubby (such a way with words!) and my forth one I got just 2 months ago at the age of 31! I actually got 2 tattoos at the same time and I love my new tattoos…

I’ve definitely got the “bug” and am thinking about another, but I’ve never jumped-into getting a tattoo, I’ve always waited until there’s something I can’t stop thinking about or something that really symbolises a time in my life. Although two have been pretty spontaneous, they are both small and represent a time, place and feeling that I wanted to lock in time…and I know I’ll never regret those. The other two took a lot more thought and designing and again, although my first tattoo isn’t something I’d necessarily choose now, I don’t regret it as I like the look of it and remember the reasons why I chose it (and I designed it myself, so know that no one else has the exact same thing on their body!). Continue reading
