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!
Eyebrows, we have come a loooong way. I have hunted down a few old (and dreadful) photos over a period of 5 years and put them together to share with you my ‘eyebrow journey’. Looking back at these photos, I am so so embarrassed that I once left the house with brows that looked so bad! Apparently eyebrows are a lot more important than I had originally thought.
It all started with the wall above Amelie’s changing unit starting to look a little bare, and so I scrolled through Pinterest for some inspiration. Here, I found tons of ‘shelfies’ which inspired me to create my own, and decorate the ever so naked wall above the changing unit.
Every year I set myself the same (unrealistic) goals – get fit, drink more water, and get better at saving. They’ve always been so generic, and not so specific. For 2018, I want to set myself a few specific goals that I think will make a happier, healthier me!
Cue the super soppy post as I ramble on about this eventful year. I started this year off by dragging myself around the Cotswolds with what I thought was the world’s worst hangover. Wrong. It wasn’t until May 11th 2017 that I had an ‘oh shit!’ moment and realised that morning sickness justified my
