AD - Let's talk body positivity!


Now I never thought I would be someone who would be writing a post about body positivity but ay, how times change.

 Before having Maci I was always quite self conscious, I would wear baggy tops because I didn't like how my tummy looked and this was before I had Maci so as you can imagine pregnancy shocked me slightly. I remember after I had Maci simply crying because of how my tummy looked, my stretch marks were bright red and I couldn't ever imagine myself feeling confident in anyway ever again. Time is a great healer... 

Fast forward to now and I couldn't feel happier in my own skin. Don't get me wrong, everyone has 'off' days, even me. My tummy isn't bright red with stretch marks anymore, they're still very much there but no longer 'angry' looking. I wear crop tops and don't panic about people looking at me... because let's face it, people have more important things to worry about in their own lives without being concerned at a bit of tummy being on show.

I have just accepted the fact that I grew a little human for nine months, went through a horrendous labour, birthed an 8lbs 11oz baby and now entertain a hyper toddler 24/7 so I am entitled to ice cream and treats and I am no longer concerned about any 'wobbly' bits that I have.

I have kindly been gifted some lovely items from Pour Moi and I have decided to include them in this post because the underwear set does amazing things for my confidence! If you are someone who struggles with self confidence and body positivity definitely do some underwear shopping,  I know it is probably the last thing you want to do but honestly, you'll see how incredible you look! I highly recommend Pour Moi, their packaging is beautiful and the quality of their underwear is impeccable.

Ad - Who knew a canvas could make you so happy?!


As most of you know last August myself and Maci moved into our house and we really didn't have a lot of things to fill it with really. Gradually I have been filling it with items I absolutely love, so when Photowall asked if I would like to work together and of course I jumped at it. I decided to get one of the images from my Mothers Day shoot on a large canvas to go above my sofa which is a space i've been wanting to fill for ages now.

The photo was part of my Mothers Day shoot with a few weeks back. I really couldn't be happier with how this canvas looks in my lounge, it really does just complete the room and it makes me smile every time I look at it. I was slightly worried that because it is a large canvas that the quality of the image may become distorted but it hasn't at all.

Mother's Day Photoshoot - Ad/Gifted


This post was suppose to go live a while ago now but if you follow me on my socials you will know that myself and Maci have been quite poorly and quite honestly blogging was the last thing on my mind. We are much better now so lets get back to it!

Mother's day is a big day, it is an important day for many women across the world and of course that comes with many strong emotions. Mothers day this year was my first one since becoming a single parent and despite the fact I am incredibly proud of what I have achieved in in the past year and how far I have come, I knew it was going to come with some strong heartfelt feelings because of this. 

I knew I wanted to remember Mother's Day 2020 with some beautiful photos and I requested for local photographers to contact me and the wonderful Heather Lerryn got in touch with me and I knew the outcome would be incredible. Heather was extremely helpful in planning the shoot, putting together mine and Maci's outfits and flexible when it came to the ever changing weather (Good old UK, huh)

The whole point of this post is that you should plan a shoot with a local photographer, you don't have to feel as so you're 'photogenic' or even enjoy having your photo taken but the memories you will capture last a lifetime and are truly magical. Im aware these shoots are fairly expensive but some photographers allow you to pay them off gradually before the shoot so it is always worth checking.

So with all that being said, I would like to share with you these beautiful images that Heather Lerryn Photography captured for Mother's Day 2020.

 I am so incredibly happy with these photos and I will certainly treasure them forever. The whole experience was very laid back and enjoyable. Massive thank you to for gifting me this shoot.

 I hope this has inspired you to either head out and take some photos yourself or contact a local photographer and plan a family shoot!

Until next time,
