Welcome to the second week of my Meet a Devon Blogger series. I will post a new Devon blogger interview every Wednesday so don’t forget to subscribe to my tribe if you want to keep up with the series (sign up button in the sidebar).
This week I’m interviewing Hayley from the blog Sparkles & Stretchmarks.
Firstly tell us a bit about yourself and your blog?
Hello! My name is Hayley, I’m a 30-something Mum of 3 boys aged 3 and under. My blog began as a place to document my pregnancy and has since become my full time job and my biggest passion – I write about everything from life as a mum and travelling as a family to more hard hitting issues such as my ongoing mental health struggles.
Why did you decide to start a blog and how long has it be running?
I decided to start it when I was having my first child as I didn’t really have anyone to talk to who was pregnant too, and I thought it seemed like a place to just offload any worries and frustrations I was having. It’s been running for four years now.
How long have you lived in Devon?
I moved to Devon 10 years ago from Liverpool, I’ve lived in Exeter and Newton Abbot but we’re now settled in Paignton where we’ve been for the past 2 years.
Name 3 of your favourite places for a day out in Devon?
Totnes – for shopping, Babbacombe Model Village for a family day, or Exmouth Beach during the summer.
Name 3 of your favourite places to eat?
Harrys in Exeter has always been a firm favourite, but I also love Ephesus Turkish & Greek restaurant in Torquay and Ocean Drive, also in Torquay.
What do you love about living in Devon?
I love being so close to the sea, the huge array of beautiful beaches we have to choose from, the many family focused attractions on offer and of course…the weather!
And anything you dislike?
I can’t say I’m a fan of the traffic during the summer, but it’s a small price to pay!
