January hasn't gone to plan so far. I didn't want the year to start this way. I had a really good year last year and I wanted to carry that momentum into this year and continue with the positivity but it hasn't played out like that. I feel like everyone has already settled into 2018.… Continue reading Is January really the best month for change?
Yes, I know, another post about goals for the next year. But, I like reading here kind of posts and if I put my goals on here for people to see then I'm sort of accountable for them. So please, let me off with this one. Please. I'm also aware I'm a couple of days… Continue reading 2018 goals
I'll be honest, I'm not sure where I am going with this post. It's a long ramble so maybe grab a cuppa or a cold Diet Coke or maybe some wine if you're feeling fancy. Maybe some biscuits because, you know, winter is not the one. What age is the best age to have a… Continue reading When is the right time to have a baby?
My little boy is one. One. 365 days old. (Well 366 days when you're reading this or 367 if this year was a leap year. Like who remembers stuff like that. Unless you have a birthday on 29th Feb). Anyway... it literally feels like yesterday I was in labour and now I have a little… Continue reading Happy Birthday!
Everyday I walk past a lot of people and every single one of them has something they are trying to hide. Whether they are ashamed of their legs or arms, covering them up even when it's warm or people pulling their tops down, conscious that their stomach is out or trying to hide their bum.… Continue reading Be kind to yourself
So I was phone free for 36 hours. This wasn't planned. I didn't just decide to be without a phone for some spiritual reason. Nope. My phone had a massive crack across the screen, which meant I couldn't unlock it. So rather than spending hours trying to find my old phone, I wanted to see… Continue reading What I learned from a day without my phone
When I was pregnant, I didn't have a clue how to raise a baby. I'd never even held a baby until a month before he was born. I decided to give myself a head start by reading so many books but there is only so much you can read about the dangers of co-sleeping and… Continue reading Two books that prepared me for parenting
So I was going to write a few sentences in an attempt to make you guess which palette I was talking about but then that would be pretty pointless because, you know, there is literally a photo of it above. I didn't want to just take a photo of my eye because it does that… Continue reading The £5 eyeshadow palette I’m obsessed with
A year ago, I became an English Language and Spanish graduate from Bangor University. Fun story by Stephanie Clayton, aged 23 and 3/4. No but seriously, I spent four years preparing for this day (not physically- although if you're wearing fake tan then preparing a few days before is key. Last minute tan+rain=disaster.) Anyway, let's… Continue reading The Graduate: One year on
Ok, so I'm fully aware that my last post was his 9 month update that I posted last week but life's hard when you're lazy/ have an active baby to look after. Since the last update, he has more confidence when he stands up and he has started to be able to stand unsupported for… Continue reading Spencer: 10 month update
