Hello and welcome to My Little Brushneen Blog!
I’m Kayleigh, Mummy to Freya, aka little monkey, fiancée to Luke, beauty therapist and blogger. Luke and I met at college and have been inseparable for a little over 10 years, engaged for 4 and will finally be getting married June of next year (2018). We welcomed our beautiful daughter into the world in May 2015 and so our adventures in parenthood began bringing with it many challenges, countless rewards, tears, smiles and introducing us to a love like no other.
As a family living in the beautiful Cotswolds we love any opportunity to get out and about and enjoy the great outdoors, we love days out together exploring both new and favourite places but would say we equally enjoy those cosy, lazy family days at home every now and then, family time is the best time.
I have many interests including beauty, fashion, photography and writing. As a child I always enjoyed writing stories and English language and literature was my favourite subject throughout my education.
I have considered blogging for many years but have never really had the confidence to publish until recently. My little Brushneen Blog is a place for me document some of our family life, lifestyle and interests and a place for me to open up about living with an anxiety disorder. I was diagnosed with G.A.D (Generalised Anxiety Disorder) in my teens and have found writing/journaling very therapeutic especially during the tougher times, it seemed writing it down on paper was a sort of release, getting it out of my system. I tried to hide my condition for a long time before seeking help for fear of being judged and raising mental health awareness is something I feel passionate about. If sharing my experiences helps in even just a teeny tiny way then its most definitely worth it.
If you would like to find out a little more about us please have a browse through my posts and it would mean so much if you stick around and follow our adventures.
Thank you for stopping by!
