About Me

Hi! I’m Steph, thanks for visiting my blog and here is just a bit about me…

I am an almost 30 year old geek who is in love with her books and shoes, living in the north-west of England with my wonderful nerdy husband, our son and our two lunatic beagles.

I am a plus size woman and I am focussed on body positivity, not trying to tell people what they do is wrong or right or even going on faddy diets to get “healthy”. However, my goal is to start to like and enjoy my body more, it’s the only body I will ever have and we have done great things together and hope to do many more – so why not try and get along? Oh, also, we want to wear awesome clothes and pretty shoes so we might talk about that a bit.

My husband and I were trying to start our family for over a year (there is literally no way to write that sentence without sounding twee or naughty). It was a difficult journey, with its ups and downs and I hope that by sharing our experiences I can process things better personally – also if it sort of helps one more person out there then why bloody not? I am now also a new mum – although I suppose that since I now have a toddler I’m not quite so new! You can be damned sure that I need to process the fact that I am now a mum. Which is not only the massive head-mash that is realising you are basically the owner of a small human, but also trying to raise said small human to be a decent member of society not a mass murderer…

In short, this blog is somewhere for me to review the books I read, talk about the things I’ve seen, visited, done, felt and thought and anything else that might cross my mind…

So if you need something to read during the ad breaks this is the place to be!

Sort of…
