Louise

British mummy-vlogger and social media sensation, Louise Pentland, has written a new book all about her experiences with motherhood, and it’s out now! 

Louise started her blog, Sprinkle of Glitter, in 2009, and shortly afterwards created a YouTube channel of the same name. Nowadays Louise’s channels cover topics such as plus-size fashion, motherhood and family-life, garnering an audience of 2.3 million subscribers. You can also be sure to catch her on Instagram, regularly taking the cutest photos of her two adorable daughters, and all the adventures they get up to together. 

Her latest book, MumLife, is a real deep dive into the ups and downs Louise has had to face over the years — and let’s just say there’s been a few! From a traumatic birth with her first daughter, to single motherhood, to finding love again and having a second child, Louise's parenting journey has been full of surprises.

Discussing the realities most working mums face, plus the impact of maternal mental health, Louise is on a mission to make other mums feel less alone, and very much heard. She beautifully reveals her own imperfect but perfect route to motherhood, as well as the loss of her mum so early in her life, how it shaped her and the mother she became.

Reflective and uplifting, with her signature wit, MumLife will share Louise's ups and downs and the honest truth, from someone who's been there and experienced it all.

“Thought it’d be a cute little Mummy Memoir but it turned out to be so much deeper than I thought it would. I’m glad. There are happy, funny bits (the whole chapter on dating as a #singlemum lol) to balance it out but I’m glad the tough stuff is in there- that’s life isn’t it? Ups and down, happy and sad. That’s what makes us human,” Louise wrote on Instagram.

If you’re not a mum though, don’t worry — Louise has assured us that MumLife is for anyone who loves her online content, which she lovingly refers to as ‘MummyContent’. MumLife is published by Bonnier, and you can pick up a copy here.

They may have only just reunited after a brief break-up, but it sounds like a baby may be on the cards for Louise Thompson and Alik Alfus!

The Made In Chelsea stars went through a difficult patch after Louise was accused of cheating, but she tells OK! that it is all behind them now: “I had to make changes for Alik and prove that it’s not going to happen again. And it won’t. He has been very forgiving.”

So forgiving it would seem, that the couple have even talked about babies! Louise says that although she’s young, it is something that has been brought up: “We’ve been joking about having children, but I’m only 24.”

Alik meanwhile, doesn’t seem a million miles away from the baby idea either, adding: “I’m not ready to be married, but I do love that girl, so we’ll see where that goes.”

Wow – now that is one couple we were NOT expecting to hear this kind of serious talk from quite yet! We wonder if Spencer will eventually leave her alone now that she is in a committed relationship, but Louise certainly doesn’t seem to think so: “He’s still quite touchy-feely, I think he does have a bit of a weird obsession with me.”

Three Made In Chelsea stars have become tied up in a drugs scandal!

A snap of Louise Thompson,  Jamie Laing, and Alexandra ‘Binky’ Felstead,  posing during a night out in New York, was posted on Twitter.

But some fans noticed that on a table in front of them, was what looked like a rolled-up banknote and a line of white powder.

The snap was among several other images posted on Twitter on Friday as the reality TV stars enjoyed the Independence Day celebrations.

It has since been removed from Twitter, but not before hundreds of fans had pointed it out.

One user tweeted, “Regret this when they wake up, rolled note and a dusty table.”

Another added, “Nice rolled up money and line.”

Yesterday, lawyers acting for Louise’s brother Sam claimed that he had taken the picture and that it was his copyright. The lawyers then demanded that all copies of the picture be destroyed.

YIKES!

Last night, Louise said, “None of  us were aware of any drug-taking at the party, never mind being involved.”

A spokesman for Binky added, “Alexandra had absolutely nothing to do with drug-taking.”

We really hope not for their sakes!
