Things only a mother knows...
For many of us, mums are the reason why we are the person we are today. They’ve been there with us since day one (literally) and have taught us more life lessons than we can remember (also, literally). Like most holidays, Mother’s Day only comes around once every year so it is important to spoil our mothers when her special day comes. Although we may take our mums for granted at times, here are 20 reasons to remember why mums are simply the best.
Mum I love you but...
There's no-one in the world who can embarrass us quite like our Mother's. Yes, we love them to pieces, but OMG, our mum's can sure make us cringe, die of shame and hold our hands over our faces trying to hide (pretending we don't know her - never met her before in your life!)... Here's ten ways only a mum can embarrass you... I love you Mum but....
For The Love of Mum
Mum's are like an all-knowing wonder woman. They teach us some of the most important life lessons that we could ever learn, like what it really means to be strong, confident or in love. Since the day we were born, she’s mastered incredible superpowers, going days without sleep and multitasking as if she’s conquered time travel. Basically, Mums are simply amazing! Although she deserves to be treated like the Queen she is everyday, make sure to spoil her this Mother's Day by saying thank you, with a little help from our hand picked guide!

7 Life Lessons According To Your Cat
There’s just something special about cats. They’re crazy, independent, sassy, judgemental little beasts, and we love them! They own their domain and they’re not afraid to put us in our place if we get too bold. They’re also incredibly affectionate and full of life. Cats make us laugh, sometimes cry, but mostly, cats allow us to appreciate the small things in life. Our feline friends also provide us with means for entertainment. You only have to scroll the internet to see a plethora of ‘cats are jerks’ videos on YouTube or the ‘weird things my cat does’ threads on reddit, to see all the weird and wonderful things cats get up to. Although they can be a little crazy from time to time, there’s so much our cats can teach us about how to do life. Here is a list of attitudes we can adopt from our cats to live life to the fullest…
