Parenting isn't as hard as I thought it would be

Growing up I gained quite a lot of 'experience' in looking after little ones, so I knew the basics of looking after babies, toddlers and children, thankfully helping me feel more prepared for becoming a Mother myself. Whenever we discussed having children with our friends or when we announced we were expecting, a lot of people would warn us about how hard parenting is, how your life changes forever and you'll forever be fighting against disobedient children and longing for your pre-baby days. For us, the opposite has been true - parenting isn't as hard as I thought it would be.

Konfidence Baby Swimwear Review + Giveaway

Earlier this year I shared the exciting news that Willow had been selected as an Ambassador for Konfidence UK as one of their Swimologists. It's been such an exciting role for us because it finally spurred us on to get Willow swimming, something which she absolutely adores and has hugely aided her confidence in the water. Back in  March, I shared a feature about Willow's Splash Babies Loughborough swimming classes, but today I wanted to share our favourite Konfidence baby swimwear with you all because we couldn't be bigger fans! Keep reading, as there's also a cheeky little giveaway, too!

Teapigs Pick n' Mix Sample Pack Review

We all know I love tea, but I'm also pretty picky about the tea I drink. I'm not the biggest fan of fruit or white teas, preferring a hearty cup of black tea (with milk and one sugar, please). Every now and then I get tempted to 'broaden my horizons' and so I decided to try out the Teapigs Pick N' Mix Sample Pack, to try a few different teas, in the hopes that I'd find one or two that I liked enough to purchase a full-size pack of.

Birchbox UK July 2017 Review

Last month I was absolutely thrilled with the June Birchbox UK, loving the variety of brands and products and super excited to see one of my favourite brands, Bobbi Brown, featuring in the box. When the July box came through my door I instantly fell in love with the box design - super bright, fun summer vibes, it made me want to jet off to Miami! The box is gorgeous, but what about the contents, do they live up to the fantastic products featured inside the June box?

The Bedside Reading List July 2017

Ever since I was a little girl, I've been a happily self-confessed bookworm. In fact, few things make me as happy as buying a new book and finding myself lost in a whole new world. I'm pretty open to the genres I read, everything from chick-lit to science fiction and true crime, biographies and anything which covers a current favourite interest.

Since becoming a Mother, I've found I have less and less time to devote to reading, but that's something I've changed since the beginning of this year and I'm steadily picking up my reading pace again, getting through books quicker and finding a few new favourites along the way.

Common Misconceptions about Blogging

1,924 days, that's how long I have been writing Tattooed Tealady, a blog I started out on April 3rd 2012, nothing serious, just somewhere for me to share my love for beauty products and share a few rambles. Who knew that over 5 years later, I would still be here, writing more than just beauty reviews, candidly sharing my life with the world to read. In that time I have seen the good, the bad and the downright wonderful that comes with blogging, and I've also realised that the majority of people still don't really understand it.
