This is a difficult video to watch. It’s is about female genital mutilation, and is from the We Are Equals campaign.  It aims to make a horrific topic something we can better understand, via the medium of decorated cupcakes.     The cupcakes aren’t necessary, and you may feel they are a gimmick.  But what’s [...]

Any Other Photo {IWD2014}

The insanely fabulous Steff sent Anna and I this not long after our International Women’s Day 2014 extravaganza. We were blown away – not only by her tech skills (types the woman how is defeated by her laptop on a daily basis) but by the thoughtfulness  of the gesture. We both now have this as [...]

Why I shan’t be posting a #nomakeupselfie

Today’s post from Cecily is very relevant – this past week has seen the #nomakeupselfie explode on all forms of social media.

Amanda’s ‘I am tearing my hair out!’ Fee’s ‘buyer’s guilt’. Caroline google-stalking her recipient…. #bookswap anxiety has well and truly hit, folks. (I’m only enjoying you all flapping on twitter a *tiny* bit, promise. Actually, who am I kidding. I’ve given myself a ridiculous mountain to climb with my person – it’s going to take [...]

The first six weeks of motherhood: a survival guide

I use the term “survival guide” loosely.  It’s not like I’ve been surviving a winter in Syria.  But lots of people have asked me for any hints and tips I have on coping with the first six weeks with a baby.  This is what helped me, and what I learned. Disclaimer – This is about [...]

This is a video that shows as much about the person watching it as it does about those on camera. 20 strangers were asked to kiss for the first time.  The result is awkward, glorious and heartwarming, all at the same time. It shows that all human need to break the ice is physical contact [...]

Today’s author is displaying a kind of bravery that I don’t think I, or many people I know, could. The post you are about to read is full of a sweet and secret hope, of worry and wondering and joy. Sadly, so sadly, the author miscarried a week or so after sending this to us. [...]
