Why Does Clarks Always Come Under Fire?

This may be a risky post as I know there are some avid Clarks bashers out there but I feel that as an ex-employee–yes, that’s right, 8 years at Clarks with 6 as a manager– I need to stand up for them because even though I left back in 2012 I still feel very strongly about the service that this store has to offer.

Every year, usually around this time, the same stories come out in the media whether it is via a blog post, a tweet or an extensive, angry Facebook post poor Clarks Continue reading “Why Does Clarks Always Come Under Fire?”

Breastfeeding- why all the controversy?

Breastfeeding- Why All The Controversy?

This week is World Breastfeeding Week and even though I have seen plenty of amazing articles from bloggers who have shared their stories, offered advice and support and, as always, have shown this stage of Motherhood in its true light I have still been left infuriated by the usual debates, arguments and ignorance that have cropped up all over social media. The worst for me has to be the fact that at the start of the week I kept seeing an article asking if we should be calling it world feeding week?  Continue reading “Breastfeeding- Why All The Controversy?”

Dressing For a New You

I have been slowly drowning in baby paraphernalia, baby feeding, caring, nappy changes, weaning, teething, baby sick and feeling exhausted. It’s probably easily done in the first year but I am 2 1/2 years on and my days have been spent wearing the same jeans several times a week, grabbing the first top I see in my wardrobe and not noticing how worn out most of my clothes actually look.

Review: Tropic Skincare

I have had a bad relationship with my skin since I was about 10 years old. It began with a few blackheads appearing on my nose and led to greasy skin, large pores and huge, red, painful spots. Cue years of teen angst, feeling self-conscious Continue reading “Review: Tropic Skincare”

Only You Know Your Baby Best

When you become pregnant you may buy a few books and try and read up on what will happen; you may naively think that a baby is simply ‘textbook'(yep I am sure many of us have been there!) The baby then comes along and as you are trying to find your feet, cope with the sleepless nights and learn what your new little person needs, you will also be dealing with all those other bits of ‘advice’ being fired at you.

Bunny Violence?!

So, channel five air one of the best-animated films – def my fave as a kid – and today it is headline news as parents have actually complained that it was too violent to be shown at Easter. How dare they show poor little bunnies getting hurt and killed; Easter is all about the Easter Bunny don’t you know? Not at all about a man being executed by being nailed to a cross!!

My main question is Continue reading “Bunny Violence?!”
