Blog Love Image


This months Blog Love is dedicated to Hayley who blogs at Sparkles & Stretchmarks.

Firstly, if you haven’t heard of Hayley’s blog I would be really surprised.  There’s a reason she’s so high up in the Tots ranking.  She’s a very successful blogger, and her blog itself is simply beautiful to look at.

If I had to sum up Hayley’s blog, I would have to state simply that it’s from the heart. Whether Hayley is writing about her children, anxiety or blogging tips, so much of herself is poured into her posts.  Hayley always writes with honesty and despite never having met her, I really feel like I know her.  Her posts make me laugh, and they make me cry, and they make me think, why didn’t I think of that!  

There is so much variety on Hayley’s blog.  From practical, to heart felt, to funny.

Sparkles and Stretchmarks profile image for blog loveI think I first fell in love with Hayleys’ blog because I could relate to so much of her life. Like me, Hayley is a mum of boys, and she also has really low self confidence which she writes about so candidly.

I often want to reach through my screen to give Hayley a hug and tell her that I understand.  I get it.

Hayley’s blog is addictive.  I can’t just read one post.  So if it is at all possible that you haven’t visited Sparkles and Stretchmarks, head on over and let Hayley into our heart.  You won’t regret it.
