The MerryBeans

I like to overshare things about my life so setting up my own blog seemed the next logical step.

03.05.18 – #MaternalMentalHealthAwarenessWeek my story

As this week marks maternal mental health awareness week, I thought I’d share my own story. For those of you who know me or have read my previous posts, you’ll know my beans were born at 26 weeks – exactly... Continue Reading →

01.05.18 – Being true to myself

I'm quickly learning more and more that I'm a total people pleaser. I'll order a pizza to share even though I don't really like pizza, I'll not tell a person how I'm feeling in case it's not what they want... Continue Reading →

18.04.18 – Doing our best

20.02.18 – We could all do with a little bit of Gemma Collins in us

So I am watching trashy TV, like total shit…celebs go dating (it's addictive!). Gemma Collins off of The Only Way Is Essex is on it and wowzers, the girl has got attitude. At first, I was like “fuck me this... Continue Reading →
