As we welcome 2015, I thought it would be a good time to look back on my favourite and most popular posts of 2014. I have had mega happy posts, and I’ve also had awfully depressive posts (literally). I’ve started heading the way of food blogging and the recipes seem to be going down well – I hope to post even more this year though. I’ve also been lucky enough to receive some great items to review – just one of the perks!


One of my favourite reviews of this year was the Snoozle maternity slide sheet – I only wish I had known about it from the beginning of my pregnancy as it helped me have a much more comfortable night’s sleep! I still used it for weeks after giving birth too.

I loved writing my pregnancy diaries again. To see each week how much I was growing and how baby was growing, and to be able to look back on that in the future. (I must remember to print both of them to put in the boy’s memory boxes).

My home birth story is right there at the top with my favourite posts of the year. As much as J’s birth was magical with him being my first baby, my home birth was the perfect experience and I hope it will go some way to helping others make a decision. This was also one of the most popular!

After a tough start with J bonding with N, this post about the heart melting moments between them was another favourite of mine. Although they have their troubles now, they do still have these precious moments which are moments to treasure forever.

Our VIP visit to Stockeld Park was one of my favourite blogging moments of the year. We had such a fantastic day out with J not wanting to leave and me meeting a fellow admirable blogger, and I’m so grateful that I am able to partake in these opportunities.

This salted caramel & chocolate tart is one of my favourite recipes of the year (and one of the most popular), mainly because it led to me receiving a most coveted Great Bloggers Bake Off badge! I never got around to participating in the final, but there’s always this year…


This Cantaloop bump support belt was one of my most popular reviews. I hope it’s helped somebody to relieve their pregnancy pain!

My post about our decision to have no more babies (for the foreseeable future anyway) was one of my most popular general posts. As the months go on, as much as I love both of my babies to pieces, I am so glad we made this decision!

Another general post that was quite popular is this one about strange goings on around the anniversary of my mother-in-law’s passing. J still says to this day that she is here.

This no bake lemon cheesecake was another one of my most popular recipes, and it was also one of my favourites to make, and eat of course!

My post about my fall back into depression was one of my most popular mental health posts. I’m not afraid to talk about my mental health, I have no shame in it. If it even helps only one person to talk about it, then it is worth it.

  1. For many, depression is a constant struggle. I know it is for me! And you're right – there is no shame in it!
