Bloggers Bluff #12 – Motherhood: The Real Deal

Bloggers Bluff is my guest post game for bloggers and this week we’re featuring Motherhood: The Real Deal.

The Rules: Our blogger of the week will tell us three unusual stories about themselves. Two will be true. One will be completely made up! 


I’ve been joining Talya’s linky, #CoolMumClub, for ages (afterall, who doesn’t want to pretend they’re one of the cool mums?!) so I’m really excited to feature her on Bloggers Bluff. And be warned – this week’s edition is a little rude :-O

Last Week’s Reveal

But before we get to Talya, I can now reveal that From Tum To Mum‘s Bloggers Bluff from last week was:

Bloggers Bluff C: Getting starstruck with England Rugby player, Lawrence Dallaglio

This Week

Anyway, as I was saying, this week, I am joined by Talya who blogs over at Motherhood: The Real Deal.

Bloggers Bluff Motherhood: The Real Deal


Talya never shies away from telling you how it is (with her own brand of frank humour!). If you’re after a blog that gives you the honest truth about parenting, then this is the place to be. Plus, she has the best collection of ‘gifs‘ to illustrate her points!

How long have you been blogging, Talya?

Two years in January – woop woop!

What’s the best thing about blogging?

The fact that you can have an idea and get it down instantly, tell the truth in the way you want to, and reach so many people in doing that. And the fact you can put in words what so many others are thinking or feeling but don’t know how to communicate.

Describe your blog in 3 sentences or less.

Raw. Truthful. Often hilarious.

What’s your best piece of blogging advice?

Don’t be afraid to say exactly what you want to – for we are the real, unfiltered voices people need to hear.

I’d love to have more bloggers take part so if you fancy being featured on Bloggers Bluff, just drop me an email.

Now let’s get down to business! Here are Talya’s three Bloggers Bluff submissions:

Bloggers Bluff A

After working at one of the world’s Gran Prix’s, I got to rub shoulders with a lot of the F1 gliterrati.

After hours and hours of playing the part and with my face frozen from all the fake smiling, I finally got to knock off at 2am. Bleary-eyed, I knocked down as much fizz as I could in the space of two hours at one of the show-biz after parties, after which, I came scarily face to face with Richard Branson.

Through my fizz goggles, rather than swooning at his feet….the one thing I couldn’t get out of my head, as the women hung off his arms, was how much he looked just like Billy Goat Gruff.

Bloggers Bluff B

I once had the pleasure of hanging out with Russell Brand (and his hair do) where we proceeded to have a conversation about whether or not I was able to “squirt” – and if you don’t know what this means…it’s something that involves your vagina…and whether I was in fact squirting at that moment in time.

He invited me back to his hotel room, an invitation after much deliberation I politely declined.

Bloggers Bluff C

I once had to do a publicity photo shoot in a supermarket, in my former life in Asia in which I proclaimed how proud I was to shop at the “local” supermarkets as opposed to the poshy woshy expat supermarkets.

They thought that it would really speak local if I stood over by the fish counter…um…in my flip flops…so as I stood there professing my love of all things local, with my flashy sign about how local I was…stinky fish juice was being swept over onto my feet by the fishmongers who were enthusiastically clearing the floor….from where they were standing….on to my feet. Ewwwwwww….lovely!

So my wonderful readers, which is the bluff??

    Oh gosh all three are written so well that’s it’s hard to decide. I’m going to go with A though.

    This Bloggers Bluff thing is a fantastic idea by the way. What a great idea to get to know a fun, exciting or funny fact about our fellow bloggers. Genius.
