About me

 Mum to a Monster


Hi, My name is Alyssa and I live in the North West with my husband D and son J and daughter C.  I am a Hairdresser by trade and you can find my hair related posts on the ‘Hair and Beauty’ section on the blog.

Adapting to life as a mum has been a difficult process for me even though it is all I have ever wanted.  Unfortunately, I have suffered from postnatal depression since having J.

When J was 4 months old we realised he was allergic to dairy.  At 10 months old we found out he could not tolerate Soya.  The list of foods we had to avoid was Dairy, Soya, Coconut, Banana and Egg.  Luckily at two J seemed to have outgrown all his allergies thankfully.

J was born March 2013 (5)

C was born November 2016 (1)

I am always happy to hear from brands about products, events and projects relevant to my family and I.
