Also known as Joanne, I am a 28 year old wife and mother-of-three

From a young age, I had always wanted to be a part of the fashion industry but didn't know what route to take to get into it.

When I found myself pregnant at 19 I didn't see much of a future in any of my aspirations; but I was given a major break after being chosen as one of the first Garment Technical Apprentices at ASOS.com

Since then, I have worked for various brands such as Allsaints, WHISTLES, Topshop and Ted Baker

Before going on maternity leave the second time around, I knew that I wanted to be a stay at home mum, because after having my first son, I was so conscious about fitting the 'babymother' stereotype, I went back to college when he was only two months old.

Since then I'd always been in work, and although I shouldn't feel guilty, I've always felt that I missed out on seeing my firstborn grow up.

 

Now I'm a little older, I realise a woman should never be made to feel guilty for just raising her kids. If you decide to work then that's great but if you decide to stay home then that's great too. I'll go into more detail about this in the future but for now...

Here you have it, It took me a while to do this because in my mind I thought 'There are millions of bloggers out there; what will make me stand out? Until I realised it's not so much about being 'different' but just being you.

 

There's only one me and if I stay true to that my blog and everything that comes with it will be unique in it's own right

The blog will mainly feature fashion and lifestyle posts but my overall ambition is to encourage women to pursue their dreams, especially those who may feel or be discouraged after having children, that no matter what avenue it is - they are more than able to pursue and make their dreams a reality

I hope you enjoy opening the life of me...
