'We have been dealing with Bloggers in this industry now for 7 years - Vicki is one of the few that has been consistent and reliable - obviously all our bloggers have young children and things get in the way, illness etc - this has never been the case for Vicki she has always come up with the goods when she says she will. Not only that Vicki has written some very interesting blogs over the years, touching on taboo subjects which make them a great read. Every time we put one of her blogs up we have a rush of traffic to the site, she also has commercial awareness and if there are subjects you want her to cover she will.  Her passions for her children, husband and life in general never ceases to amaze me. 
I would not hesitate to employ Vicki.'

Social Media Adviser

Jade Anna Hughes 'Home' Book Launch and Facebook Strategy Presentation.

I used Vicki's brilliant services for the launch of my second book. I have a hard time navigating how to really take advantage of social media, and needed help figuring out how to build my audience organically in order to ultimately sell more books.
'Vicki provided me with an amazing overview of what I needed to do, what areas I needed to focus on, who I needed to target, and so much more. Not only that, she also set up a book launch giveaway with some amazing influencers, and provided me with a day-by-day schedule on what to post, where and when. It helped me really nail down a proper marketing strategy for my business both short and long term. And on top of all that Vicki is just a delight to work with: friendly, super responsive, and really does some great research for you. 
I would recommend Vicki's services for both social media dunce and seasoned user, as well as anyone in between. She's brilliant!'

5 things I want you to know about being a NICU Mum, this #nicuawarenessmonth

5 things I want you to know about being a NICU Mum, this #nicuawarenessmonth

In less than four days’ time, my eldest child will celebrate his fourth birthday.
Birthdays are always emotional especially when looking back, I class his birth as one of the most traumatic times of my life.
I recently wrote about how four years it still haunts me.
I didn’t just become a new mum, I became a NICU (Neo Natal Intensive Care Unit) Mum.
It was a title I didn’t ask for and we were part of a club we didn’t ask to join.
I have now spent nearly 4 years writing about our story on this blog, and for other publications and websites.
I have tried to raise awareness of the issues that affected us, I have tried to bring about change but ultimately and I hope I am right in saying I have helped other NICU Mum and CHD (Congenital Heart Defect) parents.
I have tried to process some of the emotions surrounding our NICU experience and use them to do something positive.
I had so much I wanted to say this #nicuawareness…

The time Fajita night resulted in having a baby in a bath.

Do you all remember my ever so optimistic natural birth plan? You can read it here.
However, spoiler alert, it didn’t happen.
What did happen was something no one was expecting.
Wednesday the 5th July… a mundane sort of day spent cleaning the house and doing the weekly shop. With Greg going back to work the next day I was determined to make sure everything was ready for when this baby arrived! I was three days off my due date and still hadn’t had one single sign this baby was imminently coming. I had been receiving messages from quite a few people asking if baby was here yet. I was getting fed up as everything I had tried to induce labour failed miserably and every morning for the last two weeks I woke up disappointed I wasn’t in labour! I gave up, walking didn’t help, pineapple made me sick and I was beginning to tire of the raspberry leaf tea. This baby was staying put.
In the evening I put Elijah bed, and we began to settle down for the evening. Fajitas had been served and consumed an…

10 things I have learnt whilst having post-natal depression.

It’s ugly, the lowest I have ever felt. Never have I felt more of a burden to everyone that I have to rely on them to help me look after the children I created, that I chose to have.
1.You will feel like you’ve failed as a mother. There is no getting away from it. The guilt is all consuming. All day you play the comparison and blame game, if everyone else can cope why can’t you? There must be something wrong with me, I am a bad mother. Everyday, these thoughts play in your head. They take over and trap you, they trick you. 2.The stigma of having post-natal depression is real and very much alive today. The walk to the doctors will be heavy and loaded with anxiety that you will suddenly have your child taken off you, and you fear the judgement of others. You need help more than anything, but it is the last thing you feel like you can ask for. It is the hardest thing to ask for from anyone.
3.You are not just ‘depressed’, you are angry, resentful, guilty. You will shout, yell and soon beco…
