The Journey Begins…

Firstly, thanks for joining me!

‘It’s a funny old thing, this life’ – me, almost every day


Wow, my very first blog post on my very own blog!

Today marks the day that I’ve finally taken the time to sit back and do something I’ve wanted to do for a long time.  Having always loved reading, then as I’ve gotten older writing too, when I first stumbled across the newfound world of blogging, all those many moons ago, I knew it was something I wanted to have a dabble at.

This first post is just a little about what you can expect from me over the coming weeks, months… years?!  I really hope you’ll find the content interesting and definitely welcome you getting in touch if there’s anything you want to see more of, or even less of.

So, as mentioned in my ‘about me’ section, I’m just your average 30 year old.  I recently married my partner of almost 10 years and it was such an awesome day that I wish I could repeat again and again – I can’t, so I’ll just reminisce!  I’m a mum of one pre-teen and expecting baby number 2 this summer.  I LOVE motherhood and I’ll be telling tales of my own experiences so far, plus how I’m feeling about baby number 2’s impending arrival.  We’re a fairly frugal family and I aim to share some of my budget buys with you as I go.

I’m a curvy girl, and have experienced the struggles that go along with this, who has always shied away from the limelight, or in fact any activity that required me to be the ‘centre of attention’… that was until I found burlesque.  I’ve always had a passion for music and dancing but having body confidence issues meant it was never something I pursued.  I found my burlesque class in 2016 and I haven’t looked back.  Although I’m currently on ‘maternity leave’ as my body won’t do as it did pre-pregnancy, it’s something I’m mega looking forward to getting back into once bubs is here and I get to watch my fantastic burly family in their upcoming shows until then.

So, that’s me in a nutshell… look out for my next post or follow me on my homepage to get my latest posts delivered straight to your email inbox.
