About life in the bubble


A parenting and lifestyle blog for mamas of young children, offering parenting SOS tips, inspiration and funny tales from the frontline of motherhood. I’m a big fan of kindness and this is a judgement-free zone

Hello! I’m Vicky, a mum of two gorgeous girls – aged nearly three and one. I live in the South East with my hubby. I love food, travel, a good walk, a decent movie and a compelling TV show to get hooked on. I’m a full-time working mummy, dividing my time between playing hide-and-seek with my little ones and chasing the news for the Daily Mirror where I work as a reporter.


I launched The Mummy Bubble because I wanted a hobby – something that was all for me – during my second maternity leave in 2017. I quickly became addicted to it!

I feel becoming a mummy makes you feel you’re living in a bubble. You might think you’re all on your own in the bubble at times, but actually there’s lots of other mamas who feel exactly the same way.

Blogging about my experiences has made me feel less alone – because for every embarrassing or stressful tale there’s dozens of other mummies who have been in the exact same boat – and helped me laugh in the face of those tough days.

What to expect at The Mummy Bubble

There are a lot of virtual high-fives here – I love being a mum, but it’s a tough gig! The lack of sleep, the crying, the tantrums, the potty training, the CBeebies on loop – it’s a wonder we stay sane.

So expect the truth about parenting – without any sugar-coating – a lot of kindness towards your fellow mama, fun and frolics, and lots of gushing about my two beautiful little monkeys.


I love to share my parenting SOS tips, highlight my favourite child and baby products, as well as big up fun and fabulous places to visit with the family.

You can expect regular updates on a wide variety of topics, but all with one key thing in mind – you. I’m all about making life easier for fellow mums, whether it be by sharing tips on things that have worked for me or telling you my silly observations about the whirlwind that is parenthood.

You can expect more on my YouTube channel where there’s loads more tips and ideas for surviving life as a mum.
