Coming off My Antidepressants during Pregnancy 

So you may have noticed that I’ve missed a couple of posts lately (or you may not, it totally depends on how often you read my blog I guess). The main reason behind this is because a couple of weeks ago I came to a very important decision, actually by accident initially. That decision was to come off my antidepressants. A decision that should never be taken lightly, but one...

Blog Business Cards Review – Cheap Printing Dorset 

As maternity leave is coming up quite quickly now (my last day at work is 3 weeks on Tuesday, eek), I’ve been looking into how I plan to spend my time off.  Obviously the main thing I’ll be doing is caring for the baby, and Carly will be dropping her hours down at nursery so I’ll be spending more time with her as well.  In any spare time I do...

Beauty – Review – L’Oreal Clay Mask in Glow  

I will admit, the main reason I got this mask was the hype surrounding them when they came out. It seems that almost every beauty blogger I’ve come across has written about them but I figured why not add my thoughts into the mix.  I took a while to use this, mainly because I usually don’t take my makeup off until the bitter end – when in bed, just before...

Wedding Wednesday – Planning my Hen Weekend

I know, I know, you’re supposed to leave the hen party up to your bridesmaids… But they know how much of a control freak I am so they were well aware I would take over plans.  I knew straight away I wanted to stay somewhere all together with a hot tub, rather than being spread out amongst hotel rooms. The search is currently still on for the perfect venue, however,...

Monday Musings – Let’s Talk about Sex 

Something a little different for today’s Monday Musings post but keep reading…  As somebody who is fairly confident with my own sexuality, I know how important it is to be open and honest and not afraid to discuss sex with your partner, and also with your friends.  I lost my virginity fairly young (which scares me a bit now I’m a grown woman with children of my own). I don’t...

Parenting – Organix Goodies Crispy Bars Review 

When I was told about Organix’s new cereal bars for toddlers, I knew my little minions would love the chance to try them so happily arranged for some to be sent to us for them to review.  The company says the following about the new bars:   “For little explorers who like to try something new, Organix Goodies launches their new crispy bars. Packed full of juicy raisins and crispy puffs...

Foodie Friday – Our Weekly Food Shop 

Something a little different this week. As a family of 4 (almost 5), I do our big food shop once a week at Asda to try and keep costs down. We don’t buy meat from a supermarket, as Ed prefers to buy it direct from a butcher once a month and freeze it, which works out quite well.  This week was our first ‘back to school’ food shop since before...

Beauty – Stocking up on Makeup Essentials 

You may have noticed by now, I’m a big fan of No7 makeup, and Boots in general. It’s my go-to shop for all things beauty, helped along by its wonderful advantage card (even better now I’m expecting a baby and am part of the parenting club). The other day I was running out of foundation so I popped into the shop for a new bottle and ended up coming away...

Wedding Wednesday – Sit Down with a Supplier – Made for You by Lottie 

This week for the Sit Down with a Supplier series, I’m chatting to Charlotte, owner of Made for You by Lottie.  Hi Charlotte, can you please explain what your company does? I’ve been planning my own wedding (for October this year) and I made so many bits and bobs for it, my family & friends told their friends about what I’d been making and initially I was doing “odd jobs”...
