I can remember writing a post like this back in 2017, when I just started my blog. Some years I make resolutions, sometimes I can’t be arsed. I think those years are ones where I can’t think of any realistic goals, and just want to make winning the lottery my number one resolution for the year. I should probably start playing the lottery first. Moving on. I have a good feeling about next year because we have lots to look forward to: taking our babies abroad, my 21st birthday, being a bridesmaid for one of my best friends… Just to name a few!
Okaaaay. This is a post I’ve wanted to write for the longest time as, you won’t be surprised to hear, we’ve had lots of comments made about our life choices. Life is a tough old thing, especially when you’re someone like myself who tends to plan every little thing in their head and throws a wobbly when something doesn’t go to plan.
I just bloody love talking about skincare. There’s something about jotting down (or even talking aloud) about ~those~ products that your skin loves.
Moving to Wiltshire certainly hasn’t stopped us from date night-ing in Bristol. Me and Cy have been together for just over 2 years now and we’ve had our fair share of date nights (most of which were in Bristol). Ranging from a romantic breakfast at The Ivy to a chilled afternoon at Allstars playing pool, Bristol has most couples covered. Date nights have become especially important since having Amelie as it’s a rare time where we get to spend quality time being Chlo and Cy and not mum and dad for a few hours!
If I’m going to be honest, isn’t it the most common misconception that having a baby makes your relationship stronger? Romance and parenthood certainly hasn’t come in the package that me and Cy were expecting.
During my mad search for mum accounts when I found out I was pregnant, I stumbled across the lovely Laura (laura_and_isaac) and I had a nosey on her gorgeous little boy, gorgeous home, gorgeous photography, gorgeous… everything! We’ve been in touch for as long as I can remember, and when she announced that she’s going to be starting off with newborn and children’s photography, of course I was set on her doing Amelie’s cake smash shoot.
Contraception. The good, the bad and the ugly. Except, the only good thing seems to be the fact that you can prevent unwanted pregnancy. I get quite a few questions about how I fell pregnant and what contraception I’m using now. So, what better way to answer than a rambley blog post?!
You may (or may not) have noticed that I’ve been a little quiet on here for a few weeks. March was a whirlwind of a month for me, and I really wanted to take a few steps back to take a breather so that April could see better days.
I don’t know about you, but winding down is an important part of my day (unless I want to remain a miserable cow). There’s no chance of me getting a good’s night sleep if I have a lot on my mind, and don’t feel relaxed. Or if Amelie is in the mood for a sleepover.
Finally!! After 8 months of friendship, we got round to meeting our online friends – Paige, Rob and Freddie. You no longer have to listen (or read) about how much I want to meet them. But, you do have to read about what is was like meeting them. Travelling back to Bristol from Norfolk consisted of a lot of ‘I wish we lived closer’ texts, and I really do wish we did!
