The other day, after a long day of parenting, I set up my video camera and recorded myself as I emptied out my pockets and revealed to the world what junk was in them. I found a piece of broken tambourine, loose change and a hair band.

Watching my Snapchat feed, the green monster inside me began to make an appearance as I saw, what seemed like, EVERYONE at a much coveted event. I tapped through short clips of customised cupcakes, gorgeous selfies and perfect poses. Damn it, why wasn't I invited? Everyone looks like they are having SO much fun. All those smiles prove it right?

Edda's patterns are a canvas - at times literally - for her fun and figurative broad-brush stroke designs which are digitally printed onto textiles. The result is graphic, bold and a whole lot of fun.

When the cameras turned to me... she pulled out my boob to get some milk. I have been overwhelmed with the reaction to our appearance, receiving lots of positive messages from other families who are pleased to see breastfeeding normalised. Nobody in the TV studio blinked an eyelid either. Of course I had a negative tweet from one lone man, but that was it!

I Am A Step-Child And I Refuse To Deny It

Fact: I am a step child. Another fact: More than once in my life I have been told not to refer to myself in this way. Why is there an aversion to using this phrase? What is the problem with acknowledging I am a step child with step relatives? It is, after all, merely a statement of fact.

I'm a normal teenager, but I do go to star-studded events. On Friday night, I attended a wonderful evening with the world-renowned punk/rock fashion designer, Vivienne Westwood, with my mum Gillian McKeith and my sister Skylar. This evening left quite an impression on me.

Do Women Make Better Parents Than Men?

John L. Adams | Posted 07.10.2016 | UK Parents
John L. Adams

In answer to the question, no women do not better parents than men. There are, of course, bad dads in the world and there are also bad mothers. I just don't think society gives men the opportunities to prove what great parents they can be. This is simply because the overwhelming responsibility for raising children almost always falls on women and this starts at birth.

The one vivid memory I have of that interview was John looking me right in the eye and telling me that the best thing you can do is learn from others, whether it be friend or opposition. It was something that had helped him to succeed and something I've tried to implement in many aspects of my life since.

Surprising Things I Miss From My Twin Pregnancy

It's all down to looking after other people instead of looking after myself... and that brings me back to the subject of pregnancy. When your whole entire job is to look after yourself so you can nurture that little life (in my case lives) growing inside of you.

Separation Anxiety

I have always been someone who was career driven, with clear work ethic and never shied away from hard work. It's was instilled in me growing up. I remember my dad telling me of when I was a baby, he had 2 jobs so at 5pm he'd finish work come home, eat, get a bus into Central London and then work into the early hours.

Sometimes in life, shit happens. Relationships change, jobs come and go and kids grow up. That's just life, right? Ups and downs with no guarantee of what may be next. So what happens when the 'bad days' become something more serious?

I always wonder what I will be when I grow up. I know at 33 that is a strange thing to wonder but I really don't feel like a grown up at all, so it is something that I do think about. Of course, top of the list is a Princess (if you didn't guess by the name of my blog) but I don't think Prince Harry is going to be looking for a chubby bride anytime soon!

Bags don't necessarily demand a live show or presentation, I guess, and a presenting a film is a chance to carefully control the branding of the erm, brand. Already stocked at Net-a-porter, Harrods, Selfridges amongst others, I bet they'll sell bags of bags!

I've learned a lot about who I am, especially in the last year or so and I wanted to just be upfront about certain situations and lessons life has taught me. I am my own worst enemy and although I'm pretty confident, I struggle with acceptance and shame (I hate feeling exposed). Hindsight is a wonderful thing and upon reflection over the last few months, here are my 10 Important Life Lessons.

Now. What to talk about? There's a lot going on up there in the messy closet of my mind. Should I be bitter? Should I be kind? Should I talk about war, love, life, and people? I want to express myself in the most inappropriate and offensive way, because now, I can.
