More Than Toast is a lifestyle blog, founded in 2009 by Digital Consultant, Writer, Single Mother and one-time swimwear model Alice Judge-Talbot (that’s me).
My old life was a busy one; I worked for global magazine and youth media company VICE as their Digital Manager, lived in Central London and could always be found 3 martinis down at Shoreditch House. 6 years, one marriage break-up and a lot of soul-searching later and you will usually find me pottering at home with a cup of tea. And by tea I mean wine.
I became a single mum 6 years ago and these experiences are something I like writing about here. You’ll also catch me musing about love, food, home and anything else that catches my attention that week.
I started blogging about motherhood as soon as I found out I was pregnant in November 2009: I’ve recorded each of my pregnancies – first with Elfie, then with Hux – as well as my struggle with post-natal depression in 2012. I’ve also written about my experiences with a child who has had medical issues – my daughter was born with a chronic and lifelong genetic condition called CAH, secondary to 3 beta hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase deficiency.
You might say I’m an oversharer: I prefer open book.
This blog is here to record the highlights of my little family’s life so I will have lots of wonderful memories to look back on when I can’t remember much (which is now, if I’m honest. Damn that sleep deprivation).
I work for myself as a blogger, writer, entrepreneur and for Elfie and Hux as their Mum. You may have seen me talking motherhood in publications such as The Telegraph, where I have a column, Mother & Baby, Women’s Fitness, Gurgle and The Sun. I’ve also been interviewed by Jane Garvey on BBC Radio 4’s Women’s Hour which was a huge honour and have been a panelist on The Alan Titchmarsh Show which was somewhat less so.
I’m always interested in hearing from brands who might need my particular brand of online publishing expertise, whether thats for consulting, speaking or advertising. Please email me on firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss.
