Pre-Christmas Getaway Ideas*

As we will have a baby by Christmas(!) I am deffo feeling rather consumed by wanderlust. Sure, summer is great for holidays, but I love taking trips outside of the school holidays as things are quieter, cheaper and all-round better. I think if you only ever travel in the summer, you’re really missing out on seeing some beautiful places in the snow, or enjoying a bit of winter sun, and besides, the world is too big to limit when you visit! So, I headed over to Cickstay to check out some of their villas, apartments and holiday rentals to put together some dream destinations.  

Things I have learned since my mum passed away

My Mum passed away just over two months ago and honestly, it still doesn’t feel real. I keep going to call her, to tell her about the crazy stuff that’s happening, or to run funeral ideas past her. The most difficult thing was finding out we are having a baby boy and feeling an emptiness all day at not being able to call her. But throughout this pretty crappy time, I’ve learned some things, and that seems worth a blog post (gotta get that content right?)

Haute Dolci Luxury Desserts*

When it comes to luxury, I am not a fancy lady at all. I don’t wear designer clothes, and I’m happy enough in a budget hotel, however, one luxury area I can get on board with is desserts, so when I was invited to try out Haute Dolci and their range of deliciously decadent desserts, I didn’t hesitate in saying yes!


Rocking Maternity Wear with Boohoo*

When I imagined myself pregnant, I figured I would wear long flowy dresses, and paint-splattered dungarees every day and look like a life-giving Goddess. Really, I've been wearing dresses that are too small, and ride up because my bump is too big, thus showing my bum to the world. I've found it hard to find maternity clothes that aren't too 'mumsy', as I'm just not there yet. So when Boohoo asked if I wanted to check out their selection of maternity wear, I was so on board! 

The (Broken) Vagina Monologues: Part 5 - A Vaginal Video Game

Hello again friends! It’s been a while! My broken vagina and I have actually been busy growing a little human (I am aware that it’s my womb doing the growing, but it makes more sense poetically to say it’s my vag), and in a few months time (December to be exact) I will be pushing him out of it too! If I thought sex was painful, I feel like childbirth is going to be a whole other level… However, I realise I left you on a bit of a cliffhanger (or a clit-hanger as my pals at My Dad Wrote A Porno blog would say), and it’s time to catch up! 

CoolStuff.com - Does it live up to it's name?

When you call your company CoolStuff, you are setting your customers some pretty big expectations. Thankfully, Coolstuff.com meet and then exceed these expectations, as their website is full of… well.. cool stuff! They invited me to choose a few things from the website that I would like to try and usually with brands this process is pretty quick. A few hours later however, I had a pretty beefy list of things I wanted! I spent even longer narrowing this down to an acceptable list of things to ask for! 

Festivals & Technology

Like most of us, I love a good music festival. Spending time with friends in the sunshine (except it usually rains but still), with drinks, listening to amazing bands, dancing with strangers and generally having an amazing time.

Why I Overshare...

If you have spoken to me in real life, it will come as no surprise that I am a bit of an over sharer. My broken vagina updates come up as a regular topic at various blog events and if I take a particularly noteworthy poop, I’m more than happy to offer a detailed description. Hey - I have never pretended to be classy! 


Save Brooklyn Nine-Nine!

Earlier this week, when I was feeling a bit down and wanted something easy to watch to cheer myself up, I started re-watching Brooklyn Nine-Nine. I woke up this morning to the news that it is being cancelled and, predictably, your girl has some feels. After suffering with bloggers-block for a few weeks, it seems that this travesty is what I needed to get out of my slump. 

Hamilton - A Review

I’m not going to insult your intelligence and assume you haven’t heard of the biggest musical right now, but if you have been living under a large rock... under the sea... on another planet, then I’m talking about Hamilton.
