    Did Pregnancy Help With My Periods?

    If you have read my posts before, then you’ll know I gave birth last October. I know I probably sound like a broken record but this relates to my post, I promise. Pregnancy was fun, one of the best things about being pregnant was not having periods. Of course there were other things I loved about being pregnant and things I hated but I am just going to focus on periods for today. I hate periods, I mean who doesn’t though? They are not fun at all, require spending money on products and most likely comfort food. Then there is the discomfort, the pain and the emotions. Basically it’s 12…

    Learning to love my body

    This post is going to be personal and something that means a lot to me so thank you for reading. When I was 15/16 I absolutely hated my body, I always found something wrong with it. I had friends who were skinnier than me and I would always look at myself and make that comparison. I would see photos of us all and hate them because I looked different to my friends and I was not the size I wanted to be.Don’t get me wrong, looking back now I realise I wasn’t a bad size but I compared myself to others which made me feel awful about myself. Around this…

    Birth story

    It’s that one that everyone loves hearing all about. Before giving birth I had read and listened to so many different birth stories and they were all incredible but no two the same. I loved reading into different experiences as it helped me understand the vast range of different things that could happen throughout labour and birth. But nothing could prepare me for my own experience of giving birth. I’d like to share my own experience today and hopefully give a little more insight into the beauty of child birth. This is going to be a long post so please grab a cuppa and get comfy! Sunday the 28th October,…

    Pumpkin Perfect

    The last time I managed to get time to carve pumpkins was 3 years ago so I was pushing the idea of actually getting some pumpkins and a carving kit with my husband this year. I have talked about where I got these two pumpkins from for £3 in my Halloween decorations post and I would like to mention now that I got the carving kit from Poundland for only 50p! So overall it was a cheap buy to have some messy fun. We had my husbands little sister over to get in on the fun and oh boy fun was definitely one word to describe it. If you’ve ever…

    Behind the Blogger: My Town and What it Means to Me ~ Part 1

    I recently wrote a post on the places I’ve lived throughout the years and it got me thinking about the experiences of others in the places they’ve lived. So, of course, I tweeted asking if any bloggers would like to work with me on a collaboration post and I was SO shocked by the response! I was expecting maybe one person but when I saw the amount of people responding it filled me with joy. I thought this was only going to be one post but I’ve decided to turn it into a mini series instead. I wanted to find out more about my fellow bloggers regarding where they’re located…

    Behind the Blogger: Relocation

    I spent my life growing up in Stafford in the West Midlands, UK. Throughout school and sixth form I was happy enough living in this town as I didn’t really know much different. I spent some Sundays travelling around Wales with my dad and holidays in Cornwall in the summer holidays. Then in my last year of sixth form we were told to apply for University because that was the next step in life. I spent hours looking at Universities not even knowing what I wanted to do but I managed to figure out what I wanted to study and narrow it down to three Universities: Chester, Worcester and Newport.…

    The beginning of my life at University

    As it is now the beginning of September it is coming up to 5 years since I started University and it’s been over 2 years since I finished. That’s such a crazy thought, right? This time 5 years ago I was feeling all kinds of emotions from excitement to the dreaded nerves. In a weeks’ time I would be embarking on a new adventure, living independently, meeting new people and learning new things. I thought now would be a great time to share my experience of my first day of the first year at University considering it’s time for all you newbies to start! Before I start I would like…

    BBC Good Food: Spinach and Tofu Cannelloni Review

    I’m currently 29 weeks pregnant and becoming more conscious about what I eat and the nutrients provided in the food I eat. With my vegetarian diet it can be difficult to get enough of what I need for myself and the baby, in particular when it comes to iron. I googled around for vegetarian recipes that were rich in iron and stumbled across one particular one that I found appealing on BBC good food, spinach and tofu cannelloni. haven’t had tofu since I was in university and had a pretty bad experience with it (I didn’t know how to cook at university so you can see my downfall there). That…
