Foodie Friday – Focus on Prezzo 

As a mum I’m always on the lookout for a restaurant that will accommodate my slightly wayward children when we go for a family meal. The children are typical kids who get bored fairly easily and are also fussy with what they eat. Recently we went to Prezzo for a meal with my dad and found it worked well for us so we returned during our recent night away in...

My Week off Work in Pictures 

So back in February I quit my full time, incredibly stressful, job and in April I started a much more manageable part time role, which has meant being able to spend a lot more time with my children. With the start of the school holidays approaching, I decided to book a week off on annual leave to spend some quality time with the children. Luckily it came at the tail...

Beauty Review – Environ Skin Scan and Mini Facial – Hi-Therapies 

If you are a regular reader of the blog you may have seen my recent review of the Jane Irendale makeup range, when I was given a makeover at the local Hi-Therapies beauty salon. I was asked if I would like to come back in for the Environ skin care appointment and of course I took them up on their offer as my skin during pregnancy has been feeling pretty...

Wedding Wednesday – My Wedding Planning Tools 

Planning a wedding can be a little overwhelming. Where to start? How to ensure you don’t forget anything? To make the planning process as fun and stress free as possible, these are my ‘must have’ tools for planning a wedding.  Excel  I am the first to admit that I’m useless with a spreadsheet. But I also know how good they are for budgeting and planning. So I asked Ed very...

Pregnancy Diary – 28 Weeks 

Today was the first of my growth scans, scheduled between 28 and 36 weeks to check the baby isn’t going to be small like Cameron apparently was (6’9- hardly tiny). Yes, I am a little bitter about this as I really don’t see why they are concerned when Cameron was hardly tiny, and Carly came in between at around 8 pounds… Anyway, the next growth scan is booked in for...

Monday Musings – Two Become Three 

I’m posting this a little later than usual, mainly because I’m half way through my week off work and have spent the day at Peppa Pig World with the kids and I’m knackered and having braxton hicks contractions whilst trying to relax with Friends on the sofa after a delicious pasta bake for dinner #sorrynotsorry It’s been so lovely spending quality time with the children during my time off but...

Foodie Friday – Treat Night Pizza 

I’ve mentioned before, during this pregnancy I am by no means sticking to a healthy eating plan, but I generally do tend to eat relatively healthy dinners (it’s just I follow them with ice cream, sweets, chocolate and crisps).  For the past week I’ve been craving pizza and I finally got some today when I went food shopping. After swimming this evening, Ed, Cameron and I sat down to some...

Wedding Wednesday – Tips for Keeping Cool during Your Destination Wedding 

Planning a wedding abroad? One of the first things that I thought about when deciding on Santorini for our wedding was the heat. In case you hadn’t noticed from my various social media updates and blog posts in the last couple of days, me and heat don’t mix very well. To be fair, it’s worse at the moment because I’m pregnant and I *touch wood* won’t be next September when Ed...

The Lazy Girl’s Guide to Pokemon Go

Ok, so unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past few days, you’ll know that popular kids TV show Pokemon recently launched as an interactive app and the world has gone a little crazy for it.  I’m not even ashamed to say that I downloaded the app to see what the fuss was all about as soon as it went live on the App Store, and within minutes...
