This old love – I got to share advice, real ‘out of the mouth’ advice from couples who were celebrating their 50 & 60 year wedding anniversary, and those who were turning 100. I had asked them all the same question, ‘what was your secret to love and ageing’.
Stop accepting shit behaviour – A tough one to write and an even tougher one to share but it talks about how you should never be accepting less than desirable behaviour from anyone, especially your partner in a relationship. Maybe today this is the day you see in Black & White just exactly how you’re being treated, and realise it needs to stop.
Change – it’s not always for the best – This one is strictly for relationship advice. My mum brought me up to believe that you can never change anyone (i.e your bf) but more importantly, you shouldn’t ever want to change anyone. There is not one thing I would change about Mr M, his quirks are just what make him that more adorable. Remember that you have your life’s destiny and they have theirs. Important to read if you feel that your relationship would be great “if he’d just change that one little thing”…
Dear 16 year old me – This one was inspired from an incredibly powerful skin cancer advert I had seen (and shared on the blog) where patients of skin cancer shared advice they’d give their 16 year old selves if they could turn back time. I loved the idea – so here is my own letter to my 16 year old self about the advice I’d love to have been told.
Getting over your ex – This is SO hard to do and incredibly painful to work through. This article I shared some healthy ways to truly start healing your heart and soul and make that final decision to cut him and the pain from your life – to look forward, and never look back.
How to make your relationship last – After Mr M & I shared our 5 year anniversary and are more in love than ever I was inspired to share some of our own advice when it comes to keeping your relationship alive. A personal post that meant a lot to share. P.s Mr M had his own advice which is intertwined in the post so its from us both!
It’s ok – Short title but long article with a lot of heart. It discusses how It’s ok, it’s really ok that you might not be exactly where you wanted to be at your age, or you might not have set the right goals. Let it go, love yourself and remember it’s never to late.

The 5 love languages …
A few years ago I was given a book by a dear friend as he knew I had started a dating website and thought it might have been of use to me. I had never heard of it before but as soon as he explained it to me – I was intrigued. It was called ‘The 5 love languages’ by Gary Chapman. In the book it explains that everybody has their own unique love language that falls in to 5 ‘languages’ which are – Words of affirmation, Quality Time, Receiving gifts, Acts of Service and Physical Touch.
