My New Addiction – Podcasts!

My New Addiction – Podcasts!

Today is International Podcast Day. They’ve been around for a while but they’ve really took off this year. Celebrities, bloggers, sports people and many others are recording podcasts. Parenting, Birth, Mental Health, Comedy, Fashion…no topics are off limits for Podcasts! If I’m honest, there’re not something I was overly interested in. They didn’t appeal to me. Then I found out that Giovanna Fletcher had one based on her book Happy Baby Happy Mum. I loved the book and thought I’ve…

Hannah Brooke Photography – This is Motherhood

I’m proud to have collaborated with family photographer Hannah Brooke for her series This Is Motherhood… “Becka and I have been connected on Instagram for a while, and this was one of those “Yay, we met IRL” (in real life!) moments! Turns out we had more in common than we realised – similar outlook on life, son’s the same age, both of have strong minded girls as our second child and even friends in common. Such a small world! An…

I wanted to be a Stay At Home Mum then I hated it

I wanted to be a Stay At Home Mum then I hated it

So, according to my calendar in my awesome Blogger’s Bible, it’s Working Parents Day today. A bit of a weird one right? I’m not going to get into why there isn’t a non-working parents day or whatever. However I did think the day was a good chance to discuss why I hated being a Stay At Home Mum (SAHM) and chose to be a Working Parent.

Sewing Month Featuring Sew Sian

Sewing Month Featuring Sew Sian

Did you know that September is Sewing Month? No, neither did I until I got my Blogger’s Bible from Stationery Geek and it was in the calendar! I thought it was a perfect opportunity to write a post about one of my favourite small businesses, Sew Sian. They create stunning personalised clothing for all ages and occasions. Brand Rep Becka’s Bubble was accepted as a brand rep for Sew Sian in October 2018. I was over the moon when Sian…

Reel Cinema Wakefield is REEL good!

Reel Cinema Wakefield is REEL good!

Ric and I are polar opposites in so many ways. However one thing we have in common is we love a trip to the cinema! Watching films together has always been our way to spend some time together. Some day it’s anti-social but we love it. Now Lucas is getting older he is taking after us which is great! Unfortunately the cinema prices have gone up A LOT since Ric and I first began dating. This fact alone is making…

One Year Of Becka’s Bubble

One Year Of Becka’s Bubble

On the 1st of September 2018, Becka’s Bubble – parenting and lifestyle blog- hit the World Wide Web. Ex teacher, mummy blogger and, at the time, Stay At Home Mum. It was the next chapter of my blogging adventure. I began with this post which explains why I decided to start again. It was definitely a nerve wrecking time. I wasn’t sure if I should have just revamped by old blog rather than starting again.

Body Positivity and Me

Body Positivity and Me

As I sit here, on the floor with my laptop on my knee, I’m snacking on some WW Mixed Fruit Gums. The internal battle in my head to get those out of the cupboard and not the bar of chocolate was strong. This internal battle happens most days. Sometimes it wins and I get the chocolate, then the bowl of cereal, then the bread and butter etc. Some days the willpower is strong enough to push those thoughts away and…

Coral Island, Blackpool | AD

Coral Island, Blackpool | AD

When you think of the great British seaside, what do you think of? Murky waters? Sandcastles on the beach? Fish and Chips? Hostile seagulls as big as small dogs? Well yeah, if I’m being honest, all of the above but top of the list is definitely the ARCADES! Camel/Donkey Derby, Dance Machine, 2p machines, bingo! Good, old fashion fun so we were really excited to be VIP’s at Coral Island, the largest arcade in Blackpool for our anniversary weekend!

Five Things I Learnt From The First Year of being a School Mum.

Five Things I Learnt From The First Year of being a School Mum.

Schools Out For Summer! Today is the last day of the the school year 2018/19. Lucas’ first ever year at school and also my first as a school mum. Another milestone passed and so many more years of schooling ahead of him. It seems like moments since I wrote this post about his first day at school. I was full of anticipation and worry of how he would get on. I read that post back and feel proud that he…
