Four Days In Venice

I've been with my man for almost 5 and a half years and we had never been on a couples holiday until a just over a week ago...terrible, right? :P So we decided to spontaneously book a 4 day break to Venice whilst Cass is at the age that everyone wants to babysit him and it was just what the doctor ordered. The views, the food, the people, everything was beautiful. It was like being in a movie. So here's a little travel diary of what we got up to on our romantic mini-getaway!

Binge Worthy Netflix Shows

I've been dipping in and out of blogging for the past few months, struggling to find the time and motivation to write and despite stating in my last post that I was coming back full time, I've been unable to commit to posting 2-3 times a week due to having a rough couple of weeks with my asthma... During all my down time, I replaced blogging with Netflix and Chill (the literal type of chill, not the naughty 👀) and have binge watched some amazing shows that I want to share with you guys if you're anything like me and love to snuggle up with a hot chocolate and turn your mind off for a while. 

I've tried to pick shows from different genres so there should be something to appeal to everyone, let me know what your thoughts are on these or if you have any other recommendations!

Losing Yourself To Motherhood & How To Find Your Way Back Again

I say it all the time and I'll say it again; being a mother is the most incredible experience I've ever had and I wouldn't change it for the world...but it doesn't come without it's struggles. Not the obvious struggles that you are pre-warned about like sleep deprivation and yada yada yada, but struggles of the mental kind that people aren't always comfortable talking about in fear that it'll make them look like a bad parent. In my comeback post after taking a two month hiatus, I'm going to talk about the brutal and raw truth in how I have undeniably lost myself in motherhood and what I plan to do about it to find myself again.

5 Things I Hate About Love Island

If you live in the UK, you will have undoubtedly heard of the 'reality' dating show Love Island. Love it or hate it, it's become one of, if not the, biggest show on television during the Summer. Now I'd love to preach how proud I am for not getting sucked into the worm hole that wastes an hour of my evening every damn day other than Saturday, but lets be real, I'm addicted as much as the next person and am absent from all responsibilities from 9pm. 😂🏝

With that being said, there are SO many things about the show that annoy me. Most of the time it's good entertainment and means no real harm, but at times it comes across as quite a damaging experience for the young people that go in and put their love lives on show for the whole nation. So I wanted to write the top 5 things that I hate about the show. If you're a die hard fan, don't take this personally and get all eggy that I'm slating it because these are just my opinions and are no way aimed at rinsing people that genuinely love the show. 👍

Postnatal Depression: One Year Later

A few weeks after Cassius was born I wrote a post about how I was feeling concerning baby blues and postnatal depression (click here to read) and now that it's been over a week since his 1st birthday, I wanted to do an update on how my first year as a mummy has been and how I'm dealing with the incredible life change. 

As I stated in the post I linked above, I was acutely aware of the possibility that I would eventually suffer from PND and was doing my best to stay positive and enjoy my time as a new mum without pressuring myself. I was insanely anxious about giving birth, becoming a mother and how I was going to have to grow up and put this little human before anything else in my life, even myself. I'd also had a weird mix up with my midwives about 3/4 of the way through my pregnancy which completely threw me off as I'd opened up to my first one and was completely comfortable with her, only to be told I would possibly now have a different one at my birth and she did nothing but make me feel inadequate and too young to be having a baby the entire time that I interacted with her which obviously was just great for my confidence...
