I Only Went and Won our Santorini Wedding! 

Erm so yeah, big news… Kind of gave it away a bit in the title, but can’t really blame me, it’s pretty flipping exciting news!     I am one of those people who never win anything, so when I entered a competition with Perfect Weddings Abroad around Christmas, I didn’t really think about it again until I was sent an email congratulating me on winning my wedding in Santorini.    ...

Product Review: Arbonne Seasource Detox Spa – Sea Mud Face & Body Mask 

I am not down with the kids on natural beauty, as I mentioned in a previous post. Arbonne is another company who specialise in natural beauty products and the only reason I know about them is because a friend is a consultant. I have used this face and body mask (admittingly just as a face mask as I can’t quite get myself to lather this onto my body) a couple...

Product Review: Neals Yard Lipgloss in Peach 

I will be totally honest here, although I know I should educate myself more in natural beauty products, I just don’t have the time or the passion to look into it.  Luckily I have my best friend Kirsty to do it for me. Having worked as a fitness instructor previously, Kirsty started up with Neals Yard over a year ago now and she’s brilliant at helping me understand the power...

Our Engagement Shoot

It was a little awkward at first, but Tim...

Family Day Out – Burley, The New Forest 

Yesterday Ed, the kids and I had a lazy lie-in Sunday morning before wrapping up warm and heading out to the New Forest. I always feel we are lucky to not only live right by the sea, but also within a short drive of the beautiful landscape of the forest. Our favourite part is Burley, as it’s not too far out for us, it’s nice and rural whilst still having...

Cheat Day 

When I had each of the kids, I (understandably) had some weight to lose. With Cameron I initially tried some crazy fad diets, most memorably the soup diet which, as a breastfeeding mummy, had me nearly passing out. Eventually I found what worked for me and it was healthy, smaller portion meals during the week, with a cheat/treat day at the weekend. This winning combination saw me lose my baby...
