We Started Weaning | Raising Evelyn

No one tells you ‘Today is the day to start weaning!’ No one says ‘Hey it is going to be a long hard slog!’ or “The is going to be super easy!’ No body says anything like that and just like that *BAM* you regret even starting! We started weaning Evelyn when she was 5 months. She was more than ready and everything was going straight in her mouth. It started well. We started with dinner because that was what was working for our lifestyle and she would have  ...

Sooo… I Got Married

On 6th August 2018 I became a Mrs. I married my best friend. I had been planning the wedding (and by that I mean with the occasional no from Phil) for around 5 months.

Surrounded by just our nearest and dearest we said ‘I do’ in a small ceremony on a gorgeously hot summers day and It couldn’t have been more perfect. If  ...

I’m pretty sure everyone saw THAT VIDEO of the poor turtle getting a straw removed from its nose. That’s when I decided to make the change. Since then I have refused any  ...

The Fake Freckle Craze | Beauty Gone Crazy

Not once did it ever cross my find that at some point people would be sticking them on. I used to dread the summer months when the sun would bring them out even more. and then the other day …. this happened. A PR email landed in my inbox with the offer to trial a product that would tan me  ...

Evelyn is 6 months old | Raising Evelyn

Evelyn is 6 months old, like whhhaaaa??? 6 months has gone ridiculously quick. I cannot understand how it has been 6 months since I screamed at the midwife this baby was coming today! I think I have had a mostly stable 6 months. I’ve had 1 melt down, 3 times I cried after looking in the mirror and approximately 182 days of IDGAF what I am wearing. I thought with all the emotions and hormone in- balances there would be daily tears but I am doing ok. I remember very clearly my first  ...

My Baby Birth Story | His and Hers Perspective

I have been debating whether to write about my birth story, whether to share all the details or whether to keep it just for us. I think if it had gone any differently then perhaps this post wouldn’t have happened. I wanted to write my perspective on what I think happened when I wasn’t too drugged up to help other first time mum’s understand what it can be like. Every birth is unique and everyone experiences things differently. I also wanted Phil to write his version of  ...
