From breastfeeding live on national TV to public speaking gigs and reviewing fab places and products.

It has been an exciting first year of blogging at Mama Mei.

That’s not to mention my husband Chris who made it to the quarter-finals of this year’s BBC MasterChef TV cooking contest.

On my blog, I’ve covered issues close to my heart, such as mental health, breastfeeding, body confidence, eating disorders and growing up mixed race.

I’ve had my blogs featured in local and national press. As well as blogging for Huffington Post, Wow 24/7, Mumsnet and NetMums. And writing columns for Yorkshire Evening Post and The Star.

I’ve made my own documentaries for BBC Raw on “Mad Mums?” (Post-natal Depression/Psychosis) and “Save My Baby” (My award-winning film to say #ThankYouNHS who literally saved Arianna’s life).

It’s been a roller-coaster of a year. Starting out with our decision to try out home educating our daughters to our eldest Jasmine insisting she wanted to go to school.

And before we knew it she was trying on school uniform ready for a September start.

My now husband and I, also got hitched this year at our carnival themed wedding in Wakefield.

We then went on our mini moon to Amsterdam for a few days and, this Christmas we’re going honeymooning with the kids. We’ll be travelling around South East Asia… from Thailand, to Christmas in Malaysia with my family and, then finishing off in Vietnam.

My hubby Chris will be learning to cook authentic cuisine as we travel and, I’ll be blogging and vlogging about the best family-friendly places we find.

We are in need of a break as it has been a whirlwind of a year!

But before we go, I’m launching my blog’s 1st birthday party which will be taking place on Facebook (so from the comfort of your own home) with lots of giveaways and prizes to be won…
