Hello! I’m Christy and I’m a Welsh Mum of One from Cardiff, living in Wales. This is my family above. I’m married to an American (it’s not as horrifying as it sounds, I promise!) and we have a son together who was born in April 2017. We got married in 2008 and have been trying for kids ever since. With PCOS, Endometriosis, and an Autoimmune condition, our son is our miracle baby and we are so lucky to have him.
Here you’ll find posts about travel, parenting, events, children’s fashion, toys, ideas for keeping busy, hints and tips and basically share my thoughts and knowledge. I heavily promote women’s health and mental health awareness.
If you’re a brand or company looking to work with me, I’ve outlined some ways below in which we might be a good fit. If you’re looking for the nitty gritty stats, please email me for my media kit containing numbers and I’m sure we can have some fun working together.
I’ve worked with animals my whole life and we have a dog and two cats at home. I have spent the last decade working with captive bred reptiles – specialising in snakes in particular. Yeah, I’m a little weird! My husband also works with reptiles, and we have an intense connection to nature and wildlife. Life just isn’t complete for me without a warm furry body next to me when I sleep (or two, or three) and the chirp of the rainforest in the background. We even have a colony of treefrogs in an enclosure in our bedroom. Positively tropical! I’m interested in opportunities that involve my pets, and I run a guest interview series called Purrfect Pets. If you have pets and are a blogger or just a family that wants to share their experiences, drop me an email.
We have traveled extensively and have lots of travel plans for the future – this time with a baby in tow! Our next big family holidays will be Edinburgh and the Scottish Highlands for 10 days in July 2018 with a 15 month old, and we are planning on a family cruise (destination undecided!) with a toddler in either late 2018 or early 2019. We take lots of weekend breaks between then, and may travel to the USA to visit family on short notice, the perks of having lots of family abroad. I’m available to review family-friendly attractions and travel destinations as well as short breaks suitable for adults only. With flexible working hours, we’re interested in almost all travel opportunities.
You’ll find lots of local guides and events, restaurants and attraction reviews for Cardiff and South Wales here too and if you’d like to work with me to promote an event, attraction or restaurant, I’m open to trying almost anything out! My family has no special dietary requirements or allergies.
I am a little bit obsessed with new technology and like to incorporate it in my life wherever I can. I’m a big gamer and I have over 100 game reviews published on various platforms. I love anything that makes life a little more high tech and fun – whether it’s smart technology to save money, practical items that save time, or things that just add entertainment and relieve stress. I believe in a healthy balance for children between a technology-driven world and getting back to the wild and spending time outdoors. I am available to review tech products or write about new innovations that will enhance family living.
I’ve been a huge reader my whole life. I have over 150 fiction book reviews written on Amazon & Goodreads in conjuction with NetGalley, which partners publishers and readers. I don’t have as much free time as I used to, so my reading has changed a bit. These days I’m devouring parenting books, whilst exploring the new world of children’s fiction with my son. He may only be young right now, but we read him a story every night and I think starting them young is incredibly important. I’m available to review children’s fiction that is suitable for the 0 – 5 years age range (physical books) and parenting books (these are fine on Kindle). I’m not currently reviewing fiction, sorry!

Many of my reviews are also full price products that I bought and wanted to share information about. As someone who always reads reviews before purchasing, I think it’s important to write them to so that the information is there for others and I take the opportunity to enthusiastically share things I’ve bought that have worked well for my family.
