I think Instagram might just be my new favourite social media platform. I used to be hooked on Twitter, chatting with people from all across the world, reading news and opinions, and laughing at videos of animals, but with the various political happenings of the past couple of years I soon noticed the tone had changed and suddenly it seemed to be the go-to online community for every Tom, Dick and Harry to spout their toxic attitudes. Instagram, albeit definitely suffering from a few faults of its own, seems to be a much happier environment and so it’s where I find myself most often when I’m scrolling endlessly and mindlessly.
So, with the end of the year upon us and my annual reflection upon what has passed in the last 12 months as well as what I hope for the year to come, I also like to make use of a website called Top Nine which allows you to see which were your most liked photos of the year on Instagram. I’ve done this every year for the past few years and sometimes it can be quite a surprise to see which pics have got the most attention!
Today I want to tell you all about a brilliant dog-focussed brand that you need to know about if you’re looking to buy something for a special canine in your life – The Hungry Hounds Bakery.
Might as well start this post with a cliché – HOW is it December already?! Honestly, it feels like 5 minutes ago that I sat down on my sofa, wearing my Christmas onesie, to watch a film whilst the turkey roasted away in the oven, and now here we are, 3 weeks away from doing it all over again. Life is whizzing by!

Yep that’s right, I’ve finally taken the plunge after months of mulling it over, so fill a cup with your favourite bevvie and join me once a month for a good ol’ chinwag as we put the world to rights.
I was very kindly gifted this dress. The opinions – and epiphany – remain 100% honest and my own.
I look different now. The person I see in the mirror, looking back at me with curious eyes, isn’t the same person I’ve seen for the majority of my life. It’s still her inside, but to the eye she’s changed. She’s bigger, with a curve to her stomach, dimples in her arms, lines on her thighs, and a wobble where before she was smooth and sculpted. I look different now.
