This summer, there are going to be more 5K and 10K walks across some of our best UK cities to raise awareness for Crohn's and Colitis UK, and break the silence around these invisible illnesses. I would love it if some of the people who read my blog could go along to a walk near you and show your support - either by walking, volunteering or simply cheering others on.

Brighton Summer Vegan Festival - The Best Place to Get Me Some Vegan | Guest Post

AD | If you thought vegan festivals were just for vegans and veggies - think again. Everyone is enjoying vegan these days from Will.I.AM and Jennifer Lopez to Benedict Cumberbatch and Brad Pitt. Vegan week from Great British Bake Off showed us just how much fun you can have with vegan food and now the supermarkets appear to be competing with each other as to who can bring out the best new vegan goodies. Vegans now have their own cool menus in most mainstream restaurants, pubs and cafes. So if you’re currently tucking into your quarter pounder but starting to realise that there’s now something way more exciting out there and it’s vegan-shaped, hop along to Brighton Summer Vegan Festival on Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th June…

Living Room Tour & Spring Home Decor | 2019

 I adore Springtime. Summer is just around the corner and everything just seems brighter and more positive. One of my most favourite things to do when it's Springtime is changing the decor around in our home to go with the season, I swap out all of the winter-themed flowers out of our vases and put in bright pinks, yellows and lilacs, and since I haven't actually done a tour of our new home, other than snip bits on my instagram stories, I thought it would be nice to share with you our living room and our decor for Springtime.

Sometimes, trying to get non-suffers to understand about having Crohns Disease or Ulcerative Colitis can be really hard work and, I know from my personal experience, sometimes you wish that you could just hand them a booklet to read but all of the booklets are full of either really detailed embarrassing toilet habits that you don't want them to know or all of the medical terms that you don't really understand yourself nevermind someone who you're trying to make understand your condition and/or life now so that their questions are answered already for you and they don't assume the worst.

"You're now in your hands a great secret - it has been passed down through the ages, highly coveted, hidden, lost, stolen, and bought for vast sums of money. This centuries-old Secret has been understood by some of the most prominent people in history: Plato, Galileo, Beethoven, Edison, Carnegie, Einstein- along with other inventors, theologians, scientists, and great thinkers. Now The Secret is being revealed to the world."

Life and Body Confidence in the New Year

Thinking about our bodies in the New Year is something that most of us do, and instead of talking about diets or how to get into shape I wanted to share my body confidence and positivity thoughts instead. I was recently contacted by Emily from "True and Co" to explain that their goal is to inspire women like myself to influence the readers of my blog to love themselves more, have body confidence and to change your negative thinking about yourselves into positive ones instead.

Body confidence is something that we all struggle with at some point in our lives - I know I have. I've spoken about how I lost my self-love when I heartbreakingly went through my first miscarriage of my daughter Katie-Mae at 17 weeks pregnant, and how it has taken me a long time to love myself and my body again.

When it comes to a New Year we can be so hard on ourselves and our bodies and think that we must start eating right, we must get into shape, we must do this and we must do that all to change how we look about ourselves because for some silly reason we have it programmed into us that if we change how we look or who we are we will start to feel better and love ourselves - a lot of the time this is not true. Instead of sharing my best diet tips or writing about how I want to change in the New Year, I want to share my top tips on loving yourself and your body again.
