This was my first ever published post back in 2016 and reading it back has made me quite emotional. In the past year I have made some life changing decisions to take back control of my life and start persuing a career in helping others achieve happiness like mine in their own lives. (More on...

Dear Relatable Queen, My boyfriend follows loads of Instagram model accounts, a majority of which post half naked pictures and likes them all. Even when were out and about he will stare and comment on other women right in front of me. I've told him how I feel yet he says to me stop being... Continue Reading →
Dear RQ, Do long-distance relationships work? Is there anything you would suggest to help make it work? Thanks J Dear J, Thanks for your question and happy to help! I have always been very pessimistic about long distance relationships and I think it is due to my 16-year-old self being left heartbroken by my boyfriend... Continue Reading →
Dear Relatable Queen, I have been with my boyfriend now for nearly 7 years. We have two beautiful children and own a house together, but he still hasn’t popped the question. We have spoken about it in the past so he knows I want to get married, however there have been no signs of it... Continue Reading →
I have never come across someone who actually wants to stay single forever so I can’t answer for certain, but I imagine there are a good few people in this world who choose to stay single their entire lives, and more power to them! I know a few people who are perfectly happy and content... Continue Reading →
Without much to go on, I would not want to give you direct answer to stay or go.

Whether it's in the evening after the kids have gone to bed, while they are at grannies, or simply having a nap, alone time is a rare but precious commodity. We all love our children but we all deserve….fuck that…NEEEEED some time to ourselves to be the best we can be for our kids. I used to feel guilty when I looked forward to my alone time but I have come to learn that it is best for everyone in my home that Mummy gets to watch GOT with a glass of wine.
The most stressed I ever felt as a mum was in the morning before a day at work. The first couple of back were a shit storm to be honest. Everything was a rush, I was late at least half the time and I was returning to house of horrors in the evening. So, I took a deep breath, read some blogs on being an organised mummy and decided to get my shit together. Below is a breakdown of my typical morning routine to get us all up and out the house on a working day.
The statistics show that in our current age, most women return to work after having a baby and regardless of whether it be after 3 months or 4 years it is inevitably met with apprehension, guilt, fear and stress! Unfortunately for us working mums, returning to work has become so ‘normal’, that the enormity of the whole process has slowly been lost on everyone and we are expected to simply ‘get on with it’ without any support or understanding.
It is also important to remember that what is ‘ordinary’ for us (warm bed, hot showers, plenty of food) is also a luxury for many and should never be dismissed.
Are you considering having your very own Friend with Benefits (FWB)? Planning on entering into a ‘no strings casual sex’ type arrangement with the fit PT from your gym? Before you do, take a minute to consider two things. Firstly, are you the type of person who can successfully navigate this potentially tricky relationship? Secondly, do you know what needs to be done to ensure it goes smoothly, without anyone getting hurt?
