Life in a Break Down came about when I stopped wanting to blog about the bad sides of my illness and how bad things are in my life, because really they aren’t. It might feel like it sometimes, but I’m alive and kicking and from time to time having a great time, so yes if you’re wondering if it’s a play on words you would be correct.
Life in a Break Down has progressed since its early days but in essence it’s still as it was, I’m here a blogging because I want to be, because I love it and because it helps me. Sometimes I go off on the odd rants, talk about things I don’t really find ‘great’ but that’s down to the fact sometimes these things just need to be said.
Over the past 5 years I have been lucky enough to meet some amazing people and work with some fantastic brands and feel really blessed to be able to call a number of them friends now. I look forward to seeing what each day brings, who I will meet and what never adventure it might bring to me.
Since Life in a Break Down started in 2010 I have branched out in a number of ways back in 2013 I set set up a Facebook group for UK Bloggers. A place for bloggers from all genres to come together share posts, ask for help and generally just have a natter. Over the time it has been running it has gone through a number of changes we now have a website, twitter account and most recently we added an Instagram account to UK Bloggers family, all dedicated to helping UK bloggers and brands come together.
The start of 2016 saw the opening of the Life in a Break Down shop, which is starting with a small amount of acrylic jewellery. However, I do hope it will grow and be home to a wide range of products.
So who’s behind this mayhem I’m sure you are wondering.. well some of you may already know me for those who don’t here I am.
My name is Sarah, I am 30 years old and live in the Midlands of England, with my amazing partner Ash and our crazy dog, who is often seen on my blog Sally. Along side our two lovely guinea pigs Dobby and Sock.
I personally suffer from Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Hyper mobility Syndrome, Keratoconus and a number of mental health issues.
The guy with no real face – Ash, following a rather crazy review on this suit, Morphman came to be and Ash’s addiction to Morph Suits started. Since then he has shown up in different guises to bring that touch of “style” to game.
Sally came to me as a rescue dog, in fact she was rather thrust upon me and while she loved me from the start I was rather more wary, but she soon won me over and is my doggy soul mate and shadow. She’s seen me through some of the toughest times in my life and has saved my life on multiple occasions. She is a complete mixed breed, is around 15 years old and has been in my life for almost 10 years.
Dobby and Sock the ‘newest’ additions to the household this terrible twosome came from the rescue centre at Pets at Home. So far Sock (brown and while) is the dominate piggy, while Dobby is the more confident with humans and leader of the pack when it comes to ‘food time’ it is all his!
Gone but never forgotten.
Robbie was in the rescue space at the local Pet at Home for weeks, and we often stood and talked to him while we went to pick up supplies, after we moved Artie into Artie mansion we were left with his original cage looking a little lost and empty and just the right size for a Robo so it was soon disinfected and Robbie came to be with us – he was the ‘should be on Jackass’ hamster as he used to head dive off of his platform or spin off his flying saucer.

Artie was the only hamster in the pet shop one day, the guy came over when he saw me and my Mum looking and talked about how he was a cutie but slightly deformed, from that second I knew he had to be mine and soon he was, Artie was the interior designer of the flat with Artie mansion often getting a daily make over.
