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…

Crazy For You Tour Manchester – A must see!

If you follow me on instagram, you may know I’ve been a bit quiet lately due to a cold, sickness bug and exhaustion being pregnant with a toddler that doesn’t sleep! (Oh the joys!). So it’s been a rough couple of weeks. But the total highlight of this last fortnight and luckily, something I was well enough for, was going along to the Manchester Opera House to see the Crazy For You Tour Manchester….Continue reading
