A Letter To Our Daughter – International Women’s Day 2018

Since it’s International Women’s Day and Year Of The Woman I thought it would be appropriate to post this short letter I wrote, dedicated to our little girl while she’s growing in my tummy.

To Buy Or Not To Buy – Baby ‘Essentials’ The Sleepy Head

Like most people these days, I’m a sucker for a YouTube trend. New makeup must haves, skin care routine necessities or the trendiest new fashion items. The only difference nowadays is that it’s ‘baby essentials’ and ‘must haves’. As someone with not much of an income, it’s very difficult to pick out the right things and save all the pennies I can before our little one gets here. The biggest […]

Pregnancy Update – Week 28

12 WEEKS LEFT! 3 months, and that’s only until her ‘estimated’ due date! I honestly never though I would be a mum and now I’m only 3 months away from a lifetime of holding my daughter. This week hasn’t been a rough one at all, seems as though everything has settled back to normal, pregnancy normal of course. After nipple drama last week I could definitely use a little bit […]

Pregnancy Update – Week 27 (‘TMI’ warning)

Nipples. Nipples. Nipples. It’s not the fact that I think they are going to drop off every time I leave the house in this frosty weather, or the constant pregnancy soreness that I was expecting. It’s the matter of my piercing! February 2017, I made the half thought out decision to have one of my nipples pierced. Stupidly, but rather typically for me at that time, I made the decision […]

Pregnancy Update – Week 26

I’ve seriously loved being pregnant, but my word it’s uncomfortable. I was definitely not prepared for the fact I would never feel comfort again. (Dramatic much?) If you are planning on having a baby then please, for the love of your bladder, get yourself a toilet to plumb in your bedroom. Maybe this is such a big issue for me because our toilet is downstairs in the absolute coldest part […]

Working With What You’ve Got – New Blog Tips

I’m pretty sure we’ve all dealt with feeling worried about not being good enough when it comes to blogging. Are our pictures going to look good enough? Will our posts be interesting enough? Am I going to have to spend buy the most extravagant things to make sure my blog is perfect enough? Questions, questions, questions. Let’s be honest though, like everything else in life it’s all relative. Things you’d […]

Pregnancy Update – Week 25

I like to think I’ve had a fairly easy and straight forward pregnancy. I didn’t get much sickness and very luckily, since I have a phobia of puking, never threw up once. I’ve not had any scares or usually much pain. The constant peeing has been a drag though, but when isn’t it? Peeing is such a boring task anyway. This week, however, has been the hardest for me so […]
