Having been unhappy with my eyebrows for a few years, after a waxing incident in a salon damaged one of them, I was delighted to come across the microblading technique, giving me hope that there was a way to save my eyebrows. I can't remember the last time I hadn't felt the need to use an eyebrow pencil, because without pencilled eyebrows, my confidence had been non-existent.

It is really important for parents to show a genuine interest in their child’s education and praise them for their academic achievements. The more supported a child feels at home, the better they will perform at school, and if your like me and on a home educating journey, then the same still applies!

Furthermore, ‘good communication skills’ are often listed as a desirable requirement for most careers. Whilst you may not be thinking about your child's career just yet, setting seeds in place now will be sure to help when the time does come.

Mine and Gareth's Five Year Anniversary

by Jada, January 26, 2020
A few weeks ago, on the 11th of January, me and Gareth 'celebrated' our five year anniversary of being a couple. Whilst we didn't get to celebrate the day as we had planned too (due to me being ill, yet again!) we did thankfully get to spend the day together, and reflect and reminisce on the past five years we have shared together.
