When you see your ex and laugh out loud


Recently I had the displeasure of seeing a picture of a guy I sort of used to date. He thought he was a god when we were dating, and from the way he looked in this pic, he still did! Feeling himself so hard, he left no room for anyone else to feel him- if you know what I mean!

To vlog or not to vlog



Writing is something I have always done. Be it at school, age 11, writing my poem about winning the lottery (which was later published in a book- super proud moment), or writing articles for numerous magazines and websites over the years.

Almeria, Spain 2015

In my son’s first year, we took him to Paris, Spain, Brussels and Dubai. People often ask me what it was like travelling with a new baby. Was it stressful? Hard work? Tiring? Was there lots to carry? The answer to all of these questions is, Yes! However, there are ways to reduce the stress and headache of doing it. Here are 10 things every parent should consider before traveling with a baby.

With so much conflicting information available on the net about the best products, treatments and regimes for healthy afro hair, you would be forgiven for being just a teeny bit confused. 'Do this, but don't do that, buy this, but avoid that'... It's exhausting! If a product is promising thicker, fuller, longer and healthier natural hair, guess what? We are buying it!

10 Signs you are done with clubbing


I used to LOVE raving and I literally mean LOVE it! You would find me in the club 4 nights a week, getting turnt up, rocking a short ass mini skirt and the most ridiculously high heels. Me and my girls were usually the 1st to arrive (free entry before 11pm and all that) and the last to leave.

How do you find the best childcare?

Finding the right childcare can be so daunting. You are about to trust complete strangers to look after you precious baby, so these strangers need to be the best strangers possible. So, how exactly do you find the best childcare available? I viewed 8 nurseries for my son and 1 childminder and ended up sending him to a childminder in the end. Why did I choose the childminder? Because the only nursery I was entirely happy with had no spaces and I felt a connection with the child minder within minutes of talking to her. Whether you decide on a nursery or a childminder, here is my list of things to consider when you are searching.
