Planning a blogging event in London

I’m fairly new to the world of blogging ‘properly’. Although I’ve actually had blogs on and off for the last 12 years, this is the first time I’ve got involved in the community, social media and concerned myself with things like SEO! However, I have big hopes and dreams. After meeting amazing bloggers and companies at the press launch of This Morning Live, Rochester Sweeps Festival, This Morning Live and The Baby Show, I’m really looking forward to going to Blog On in September. However, I would love to host my OWN blogging event somewhere down the line! Here are some of my thoughts on how I might approach it. View Post

The Baby Show, Birmingham NEC

If you’ve been following my social media, you’ll know that we spent a couple of days in Birmingham at the weekend.

Mumpreneur business – Weddings in Central Park

I’ve recently started blogging about weddings. It’s almost my 2nd wedding anniversary and I really do miss the excitement of wedding planning! As such, this is my way of reliving it.

I’ve seen it on TV in movies such as When Harry Met SallyElf and Home Alone 2. It’s beautiful and if I’d gone to the US to get married, it definitely would have been my choice over Las Vegas.

Let’s hand it over to Claire… View Post

Trichotillomania – my husband’s story

My husband suffers from trichotillomania. It is a little known mental health condition, which consists of the impulsive pulling of hair, which can be from anywhere on the body. This can result in bald patches and feelings of guilt and embarrassment. I’ve interviewed my husband on his experience of trichotillomania, in an effort to help raise awareness. I have only read stories of women having it online, so I’m hoping that it may help some people to read about a man with the condition. View Post
