Places to Visit in Cardiff

Looking for the best things to do in Cardiff? There is nothing quite like local knowledge, so if you’re wondering what to see and do, there are so many places to visit in Cardiff you will be spoilt for choice.

It’s ok to be on a diet

Have you ever been fat-shamed or ridiculed for changing the way you eat?

After having some backlash telling me it is not a good idea to promote my weight loss, I felt compelled to reply.
