I’m Bec , a 26 year old Mummy to a little boy Frankie who turned 3 in November and we’re from Essex. I work as an EA in the City Monday through Wednesday and as a PA to a cheeky demanding dictator with a passion for all things Thomas the Tank Engine, the Minions & with cheese on, Thursday through Sunday.

After finding time to stop digressing the reasons not to try my hand at blogging after wanting to do it for so long, I decided in April 2018 to take the plunge and start up a blog page and here it is ‘thetwentyishmum’!

My main focus is building up reviews of local places to visit and places that are child-friendly to eat in Essex! The rest of my blogs are  sharings of my journey in becoming a Mummy.


I’m one of those Mums that WANTS to make time for Pilates on a Sunday morning, eat acai bowls and remember to drink green tea every day – in reality I’m one of those Mums that tries the 5:2 diet most weeks, hides her muffin top and eats a family size bag of kettle crisps in the evenings just because. I love Captain Morgans Spiced Rum, diffusers, Dwayne Johnson, TK Maxx, dungarees on babies, going out for dinner, Giovanna Fletcher, reading Paige Toon books, holidays, Soap & Glory, H&M everything, prosecco brunches, any kinds of bargain with money off or in a sale and reading (dropping) books in the bath.

This year marks my third year of entering the ballot for the London Marathon, which I got into! Here’s to Dementia Revolution 2019 and a heck of a lot of running! I avidly support and fundraise for Dementia UK and Alzheimer’s Society and sadly lost my Nan to the awful disease earlier this year.

I have been lucky enough to have some of my blog posts and reviews published by EssexMums, I am a Netmums Chairmum and I am also a Favourite Blogger of MyBump2Baby.
