Hypermesis Gravidarum & I


Hyperemesis Gravidarum has literally taken over my life. it has made me feel things I never thought I could feel. it has consumed all my energy, and taken more from me than I will ever be able to explain. When I was pregnant with Emily, I had serious morning sickness, at the time I thought it was horrendous, I was sick from the moment I found out I was pregnant and was still being sick during labour. Little did I know, it can get worse. A lot worse. I have literally been unable to do anything, I lost my independence, I haven't been able to cook, oh and the mum guilt, it is the absolute worst. I have become so dependent on medication and Sam that I feel useless.

Matalan are running another campaign this year to help raise funds for Alder Hey Children’s Hospital – and we are so excited to be involved! A few weeks back there was a massive pyjama party for the children at Alder Hey and we were very kindly sent some lovely bits for us to join in, by hosting our own mini party at home. I couldn’t wait to spend some quality time with my little family while hosting our party.

Children's Christmas Gift Guide

Christmas is fast approaching, and if your anything like me I bet you’re not even ready for it! I still have a massive amount of wrapping to do, and there is still lots of things to get on my ‘to buy list’. So if you are looking for the perfect gift for your child then look no further – I have put together a little gift guide which I hope will give you some inspiration.

Emily loves to watch Little Baby Bum on YouTube. It is the #1 education channel on YouTube. They recently brought out the brands first ever musical plush range. The musical toys make the perfect gift for young fans of Little Baby Bum. They bring them unlimited enjoyment of their favourite nursery rhymes in a cute, cuddly toy! There are six various characters to choose from, Emily went for Cow and Tinkle the star. Each electronic plus plays four nursery rhymes. These impressive new toys are suitable for children aged 6 months to 4 years old.


A personalised hairbrush is a beautiful little gift for all the little and not so little people in your life. Emily is at that age now where she loves to brush her own hair, so this beautiful personalised hairbrush is right down her street. It is a keepsake that can be treasured for years with a name that will never rub off. You can simply pick which type of bristles you would like, type in the name you would like to personalise the brush with a choose from one of the beautiful designs. I went for the roses design and Emily adores it.
