When I entered the register office in Birmingham I did not expect to see the words ‘septicaemia’ written at the top of the ‘reason for death’ list. I didn’t click, even when he showed the signs and symptoms of septicaemia. My father had lung cancer, he had COPD, but he didn’t have septicaemia… did he? I felt my rage burn inside as…

*This is a collaborative post. Education can set us up for success in so many ways. Leaving school with good grades, attending college and then university means you can get into an entry level job and work your way up. It opens doors that would be otherwise closed without a degree. However for many of us, this set route isn’t the path we end up following. We might have struggled at school or been bullied…

*This post contains some graphic descriptions. I know people often shy away from period talk, and I kinda get it. People think periods are gross, or embarrassing, or just one of those things we all know happens each month but we never talk about it. For me, my periods are something I’m actually quite scared of, and I think it’s time to address this issue, whether it can be resolved or not.  Do You Have…

Everyone wants their family to have a solid and stable future. You might not have much say over what your kids do when they leave home, but you can make sure they have the skills and attitude to make it in the world.

Ready Player One has hit the cinemas and I can only imagine the turn-out it’s had. I managed to catch it a while ago, thanks to ShowFilmFirst, and I have to say, I absolutely loved it. I’d heard so many negative things being said about the blatant 80’s vibe, but I wouldn’t be without this kind of nostalgia in a movie, because it’s the best kind! Not only does this movie play homage to the…

  *Thank you to the companies that provided me with items for this list (all marked with *). All opinions are 100% honest and my own. Where is this year going? I am absolutely shocked at how fast it is flying by and can’t believe Easter is almost upon us. I wanted to write a little post about vegan Easter treats and gifts, from chocolate to crafts, because Easter isn’t all about the chocolate, right?! …

This month has seen a big peak in support and recognition of International Women’s Day, with men and women working together to celebrate the amazing women of our past, present and future. With this in mind, I thought I’d talk about a new trend that’s recently emerged for women focused on self-appreciation and self-loving.  The Self- Love Ring Yep, there’s a new…

*This is a sponsored post. All opinions and thoughts are my own. I first met Warren in 2007, over ten long years ago. We started dating soon afterwards, thanks to an exchange of numbers one drunken night in Cardiff’s Varsity. We often talk about at how dating was back then, how the dating scene has changed, and we always wonder if we’d have ever met in this day and age… All the advancements that have…

I have recently been doing a lot of work when it comes to Search Engine Optimisation (SEO), and I thought it was time to share a few things that I’ve learnt about good online content with you lovely lot… When…
