Last Friday I threw threw caution to the wind, ditched the laundry, headed up the M2 Coastbound from HQ in North West Kent and joined a load of like minded Mums for a morning of coffee, catch ups and Clemmie Hooper in Whitstable. Thanks to sponsors PG Tips, Mums The Word who launched Mamas Meet Ups in Tunbridge Wells have extended their reach to a far corner of Kent and now Mums in the Coastal region of the county can get involved in some Mamas Meet Ups too. more “Mums The Word Mamas Meet Up with Clemmie Hooper @modaughters Whitstable”

5 simple ways to grow your blog

I have been blogging now for almost three years, and despite the ebb and flow of the energy and time I’ve been able to apply to it, mostly due to the depletion of energy caused by two little humans, it’s taken form and from a tiny seed, I guess a moderate sized sapling has grown.  more “5 simple ways to grow your blog”

Back in my days in the corporate environment, plugging away at a desk for hours at a time, all it took was a slight grumble of neck ache or an iffy twinge in your wrist and you’d have health and safety over for a DSE assessment before you could say Repetitive Strain Injury. more “Is blogging damaging your posture?

Influenced

I sometimes wonder how social media has shaped the person I am – the clothes I wear, the places I go and the opinions I form. As access to other people’s lives has never been easier, there is no doubt that thanks to social media, I have been lured into a certain trend or product, or even lifestyle choice that I’d have otherwise been oblivious to. more “Influenced”

Life on Instagram; An epic lie or the beautiful truth?

I spend a fair bit of time of time on instagram. I can’t deny it.
