Contact / About Mess & Merlot

I’m a thirty-something Mummy to two little people (Spud, 8yrs and Flump, 6yrs) and wife to one big person, Himself. Not their real names you’ll be glad to hear.

We live in beautiful Bedfordshire, a ‘normal’ family, full of love, noise, commotion, bickering, cuddles, adventures and the day to day trials of Big People Vs  Little People.

As my blog name would suggest, there may be a little Merlot involved along the way (post bedtime kerfuffle), say 90% mess 10% Merlot.*

This blog is my little personal space to waffle freely and I hope you enjoy sharing it with me!

Mess and Merlot is a family blog that covers a range of subjects including parenting, health, blogging, body image, lifestyle, baking, family fun and more! I am an active member of the blogging community and have a loyal following on social media.

I am happy to work with brands for product, service or experience reviews relevant to the blog or our family life.

All posts that are review/sponsored posts  will be highlighted as such and always 100% honest.

 I am a SAHM mum of two, aged six and eight.

We live in Bedfordshire and regularly travel to London, Berkshire and Hertfordshire as a family.

If you would like to work with me please email me at

Media kit available on request.


I’d love to hear from you!
