Accidental Hipster: someone who does all of that by accident.
Having children turned me into a hipster without me realising it. I stopped knowing what was happening with popular culture and carried on wearing the lace and velvet that has been in my wardrobe for over a decade.
I was once an accidental pretentious hipster when I asked about a CD in a record shop and uttered those criminally condescending words “you probably won’t have heard of them.” I wasn’t being pedantic, I just knew they wouldn’t have. I was right but my fiancé cringed just the same.
This blog shares my life, that of an accidental hipster mum and all the things that interest me. Expect to see quite few beauty posts and skincare (not because I’m mega glam, but because I’m trying very hard to recapture the beauty of youth). Since I have children and they take up a huge chunk of my waking hours, they feature a lot, but this isn’t a straight-up parenting blog. I guess mum lifestyle is probably the best description I can throw at this.
Take a look around
In case you’re interested, I’ve been published in a few papers, here are some examples:
I write a few articles each week for Grimsby Live/Grimsby Telegraph and this website seems to collate a handful of my other articles (I don’t know why, I didn’t set it up, but it’s pretty useful!)
