January 9, 2019

Postpartum hair loss seems to be one of those things that most mothers suffer from, but no one really talks about, like the way your boobs feel when your milk comes in, or the fact that postpartum bleeding goes on for-e-ver. I’ve passed the masses-of-hair-clogging-up-the-plughole stage and am firmly in the ridiculous-sticky-out-regrowth stage of postpartum hair loss, so I asked my lovely hairdresser Lucy to…

Boxing Day Traditions

December 26, 2018

Merry Christmas! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas Day yesterday. I don’t know about you, but I’m still feeling full from that enormous Christmas dinner yesterday.
