I’m Becky Connolly; North Yorkshire born and bred mum to my favourite little boy — Reuben — and married to long term partner, Sean. We live in a rural market town with our two house rabbits and now only guinea pig.
I have a Christian faith and go to a community active pentecostal church in our town (food bank, job club, kids clubs and baby groups.)
Health-wise, I’m interesting! If you’ve heard the term being a “spoonie”, that’s me. I have generalised anxiety disorder (GAD) and some chronic conditions: fibromyalgia, joint hypermobility disorder, temporomandibular disorder (TMD), hypothyroidism, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and Raynaud’s disease, which mean a varying degree of pain and fatigue on a daily basis.
I enjoy singing, cross-stitching, animals and wildlife, shopping and days out with the family at places like English Heritage properties, nature reserves and Beamish outdoor museum.
Honestly Becky is a personal motherhood lifestyle blog sharing my first hand experience and advice on parenting little ones, health (including chronic pain and mental health), fashion and lingerie.
Here I like to share my thoughts, hopes and fears on everything from being a mum to living with daily pain, alongside family oriented content and product reviews.
The blog began life as Becky’s Boudoir, which ran for a decade since conception in February 2011 (originally a Blogger ‘Blogspot’ blog before migrating to self hosted BeckysBoudoir.com Spring 2014) to February 2021. Becky’s Boudoir was predominantly a lingerie blog for the fuller busted figure, which gained recognition in the intimate apparel industry and lingerie community.

I just want you to know I came across your blog and it is so wonderful! First of all, let me say your posts are so informative and helpful to me and I can’t wait to read more. I have many similarities to you and I believe we are exactly (or right about) the same body size. Your reviews are perfect for me, and done so well. What an incredibly beautiful woman you are… so nice to come across this wealth of information!

Hi Becky, sadly I’ve heard you’ve discontinued lingerie reviews due to a combination of body changes post pregnancy (and a number of trolls?).
Could you possibly recommend an alternative blog that caters to lingerie for the larger figure?

Hi Sandra, I’m afraid I’m out of the loop at the moment so I’m unsure who’s around to recommend. But I wouldn’t say I’ve discontinued totally from lingerie reviews, I’m just having a hiatus while I find me again.
