Hello and welcome to My Bellyful! My name is Leah and I’m a writer, blogger, book lover (though I barely get time to read past the first chapter these days!) and art enthusiast from the UK.


Firstly, let me start by saying thank-you so much for taking the time to visit my blog. I originally created My Bellyful (originally known as Bellyful of Art) in Autumn 2014 as a platform for my art-inspired writings, but, feeling limited by my chosen niche and somewhat uninspired, in January 2018 I decided to evolve the blog into something more life-orientated.

With that in mind, there are still a few things that you won’t find on this site:

  • fashion advice (if you could see what I’m wearing now you’d understand why!)
  • make-up tips (ditto)
  • interior design inspiration (if you know how to create an Instagramable house, please let me know!)
  • mouth-watering recipes (though I am currently writing ‘An Ode to Cake’!)

What you can expect, however, are heartfelt (yet rambling) observations on all manner of life-related subjects (from a short precis on why I love train travel, to the perils of being an introvert) alongside short stories, poems and the usual book, art and film reviews.

I love writing and without My Bellyful much of what I write would remain unread on my computer so if you have any thoughts about any of the content you find here (or if you would like to write a guest post), please do get in touch – mybellyfulonline@gmail.com. I also enjoy discovering new blogs and meeting new writers so feel free to post a link to your blog in the comments section below or ping me an email at the address above if you’d like to connect.

I hope you enjoy reading My Bellyful. Thanks again for visiting and I hope to see you again soon!

  2. Hi Leah! I am just taking some time to say a big thanks to all those kind people who have followed my blog since starting last November. I really appreciate that you took the time when I was just starting out to show an interest in me and this inspired me to persist with my writing and photography. Having a chance to engage with talented bloggers has helped me develop my own skills and I am very grateful. I hope you are still enjoying blogging and look forward to keeping connected. Very best wishes and thanks! TJ


    1. Hi TJ, that’s such a kind message. Your blog really is wonderful and I’m so pleased that my comments have encouraged you to keep up the great work! I’m looking forward to reading (and seeing) more from your blog in the future. All the best, Leah
