I’m Alice, a former teacher, now retrained as housewife and mother.
My favourite things in life, after my little family of course, are great food, great wine and great company, closely followed by vintage clothing and statement shoes. I’m a strong believer in keeping your own identify when becoming a parent and combining being a wife and mother with being my most fabulous self is something I strive to achieve on a daily basis.
This blog shares the eclectic mix of wonders my journey through life brings me. By day I can normally be found exploring Essex with my two little ladies, playing games, baking cakes and generally trying to keep my children alive. By night however I become a wannabe Carrie Bradshaw, sadly without the expensive shoes, but that is something I am working on.
I dream of being a successful freelance writer and I dream of having a book (or two) published. I am a hard-working, driven person so one day, god willing, I will achieve my dream.
Alongside my blog I am on the Essex Mums Review Panel and I am a member of both Britmums and the NetMums Parent Bloggers Network. I enjoy guest posting for sites such as This Little Lady Went To London and Britmums and I write for Inspired Essex Magazine and RM Magazine.
