A BIG Sparkly HELLO and thanks for stopping by!
If you are interested in working with our family, we are always open to hearing your ideas. You can contact me anytime via email at: Hayley@sparklesandstretchmarks.com
Who Are We?
Sparkles & Stretchmarks is an award winning UK Lifestyle & Family blog written by me - Hayley, a busy mum of 3 little boys.
For over four years now I have been sharing my family's journey as we've grown from couple to family of five, as well as writing about topics such as pregnancy, parenting and travel. I have built up a large, loyal and engaged following of readers not only through my blog, but through my various social media platforms too - these days it can be difficult to determine a bloggers influence simply by looking at their follower numbers alone as, let's face it, followers can easily be bought! So we're proud to be able to demonstrate the trust that our followers has in us with visible engagement across our social media platforms.
Sparkles & Stretchmarks was a blog that began as a pregnancy diary, but it has grown to become my full time career. My blog continues to go from strength to strength, gaining followers and views at a steady pace.

We are regularly featured in the press, and as a passionate writer I am also available to contribute my work for publication - having previously been asked to write for some of the UKs top publications such as Essentials Magazine, the Good To Know website, and regularly contributing articles to the Huffington Post.
