Hello, Hiya, Howdy (do people still say howdy?) My name is Cara and I started this blog at the end of 2014. It began as my creative outlet when I was struggling with giving up my career in retail management to become a mother.

I started out blogging about parenting and over the years it has evolved into a blog that covers interiors, lifestyle and fashion but always always has being a mother at its heart.

I have recently been nominated for the UKBlog awards 2018 which I am thrilled about.

I live just outside of Cheltenham with my husband Simon and two sons Harbor (6) and Sonny (4) where we are renovating our little cottage.

I have had the opportunity to work with some amazing brands such as Laura Ashley, Joules, Matalan, Sophie Allport and Homesense to name a few. If you wish to collaborate feel free to get in touch through the ‘contact me’ page.

Thank you for stopping by, I love to hear your thoughts so feel free to comment.

    I am writing to ask if you’d be interested in selling banner ads (or ads in other form if you have other ideas) on withinthesewallsblog.com.

    I would like to advertise my website: https://altruisto.com which is a landing page for a browser extension I’ve created so that its users can collect money for effective, research-backed charities while shopping online (with no extra costs for them). For every $4.85 raised for Against Malaria Foundation two people are protected from malaria (via bed nets) and for every $1.19 raised for Schistosomiasis Control Initiative one child gets cured from parasites. It works with over 1000 shops including eBay, Aliexpress, Etsy, Microsoft.

    You can see an example of our ad on slatestarcodex.com

    What do you think?
