Before you've even left the hospital, everyone starts offering their own supposed pearls of wisdom on what you should/should not/must not ever even contemplate doing when it comes to child-rearing. Be it your first or your fifth child, often, we just don't want to hear your thoughts unless we ask.

In the past couple of years I have been to Berlin twice for hen do's, Amsterdam once, and stayed in London a couple of times.

Throughout these journeys I have developed my own travel style. I know what I like and what I don't. I know the best ways to get what I want out of a trip.

When a girl experiences their partner even looking at another female, it can be a great punch to the gut.

I don't promote any method of feeding. My job is to provide nutritional information for dog owners. However, I do prefer home-prepared diets, raw or cooked.
