Little pink café- Bristol’s Hanham Suburb

If you have a pink obsessed small person (or big person) in your life, or you’re just after a decent breakfast that doesn’t cost the earth, The Little Pink Café is now firmly on my favourites list.

Aesthetically pleasing in all pink and white, it’s atmosphere is that of a traditional bustling coffee shop. Set in the heart of Hanham high street this place is for everyone, not just the members of pink lovers anonymous.

Pink lattes and decent coffee

Enjoy funky pink drinks, traditional teas and coffees, English breakfasts and American style pancakes in cute and kitsch surroundings. The choice is vast here at The Little Pink Cafe. An independently run business by a group of friendly females, this is an ideal place for those mothers’ meetings and Saturday morning breakfasts with the kids. it’s also a lovely place to host an event such as a baby shower, when we attended this morning there was a group hosting a 40th birthday breakfast, and I just love that idea!

Whatever your occasion, or even if there isn’t one, give these guys a visit.

Brett Salako Photography ~ Review

On 3rd April we hired Brett to take some photographs at our daughter’s sixth birthday party. During my time blogging I’ve met some great photographers and all of them offer a different and individual vision. We hadn’t used Brett before. We’d never hired a professional to photograph a kid’s party before either. It’s safe to say though, we were more than a little thrilled with the final pics.

Those of you that have been reading my blogs for a while will know, I don’t often review products or services. But I felt it important to write a full review of Brett’s services and tell you why I think you should hire him for your next event.

  • Brett arrived early, managing to capture some fantastic, intimate, family photos before the carnage of 30 six year olds ensued.
  • Brett’s presence was non invasive. You can imagine lots of kids don’t want to be lined up for a hundred photographs when they could be partying, and Brett made sure that wasn’t necessary, whilst still managing to capture some perfect shots.
  • He has a very arty flair when it comes to captures, and he managed to make the otherwise plain background of the hall fit perfectly into each photograph.
  • He listened to what we asked for and delivered.
  • His efficacy of getting the finished edit to us was stellar.

Brett is Wiltshire based but also covers surrounding areas, he is available for family shoots, weddings, landscapes and a variety of other photography services.

Brett’s instagram showcases his versatility.

What I really liked about having Brett at our daughter’s party, was his patience. When you’re surrounded by children moving at speeds, for hours, it can be hard to capture the perfect shot, but that wasn’t an issue for Brett. He was dedicated to the cause and managed to capture our daughter, and us as a family, beautifully.

So why would you hire Salako Photography for your event? Well, if you’re after a patient, punctual and interested photographer, who listens to your ideas and is speedy with his edits. I can’t see any reason why you wouldn’t want to hire Brett. His prices are competitive, he really cares about your vision and will work with you to achieve it whilst adding his own artistic flair. We now have a whole album of our daughter’s special day that we’ll be able to cherish forever. Her first birthday as a big sister, and her first surrounded by friends post covid-19.

I highly recommend Brett, he’s not just a great photographer, but a genuine and friendly guy, too!

Blossom Bra review ~ The comfort craze.

You might of read my previous post on my huge boob struggle. Trust me when I emphasise the word struggle and tell you that it’s real!

Fear not though my dear D-K cup friends, I bring you good news. Actually it’s fucking fantastic if I’m honest, the girls at Royce Lingerie have gone and brought out a comfort bra in big booby sizes, and wait for it….. it’s not ugly! That’s right, this cute little comfort bra called The Blossom has it all, (or not because there’s no underwire) and I’m so here for it.

I’m forever moaning about pain caused by non supportive bras, shoulders, back aches, underwire boob imprints and because I live with Fibromyalgia I also get something called allodynia where your skin reacts to non painful stimuli as if it is indeed painful, sometimes it can feel like I’m being scorched with a blow torch and this is particularly noticeable in the areas that my bra touches. Not to mention around menstruation when they’re so fucking sensitive it can feel like the lacey number I chose to look cute in, is giving me boob thrush.

Underwires are the devil when it comes to comfort but how do you get that cute cleavage thing going on without one? How do you get a lift without separation?

Well…. you buy a blossom bra that’s how. Check this little beauty out

Complete with central drawstring to get the perfect amount of voluptuous décolletage on show. It’s the perfect combo of sports bra and crop top with maximum support without losing style.

Honestly it’s so comfortable I am considering never taking it off. I’m wearing my sister size of 36H and it fits my usual 34HH perfectly.

I was lucky enough to be gifted this bra but truthfully I’ll be buying it in the other colours too because it really is too good to be true. This particular design also comes in a nursing equivalent.

As if there’s more good news, it’s only £36!!! Whilst this might seem a lot for ladies able to shop in Primark for underwear, for us chesty girls this is a steal. I’ve paid £65 for a bra before and it was ugly as ass.

Go on, treat yourself and your Bristols to a little bit of luxury and a lot of comfort, you won’t regret it. The girls at Royce are more than happy to talk you through sizing queries and they offer super speedy delivery too. You can find them on Instagram here @Roycelingerie
