Taking the Leap with Hotter Shoes – Bournemouth’s 10th Anniversary Celebrations

Despite my awful experience with indoor skydiving back in February, I do actually enjoy the adrenaline rush that comes with pushing your comfort levels just a little.  So, when the lovely Kara at Chelsea Mamma asked if I would like to take part in the Hotter Shoes event celebrating their Bournemouth store’s 10th anniversary by launching myself down the pier zip, I jumped at the chance (no pun intended).  I’ve...

Mummy Mondays – Easter Fun with Holibob Bear 

Cameron and Carly are both at the stage where they are totally obsessed with their cuddly toys.

Beauty – My Top Tips for Saving at Boots

Yes, there’s an underlying theme to the blog at the moment – ways to save money, and it’s because I’ve never been as short on money as I am currently.

Mummy Mondays – Benjamin’s 6 Month Update 

How has half a year gone by since I was induced and Benjamin came into the world just a few hours later?

Food & Fitness Friday – Creating Easter Treats with the Kids 

Chocolate nests take me right back to my childhood easters in an instant.

Beauty – Products I’ll Always Repurchase 

As you may have noticed, I love buying new beauty products from time to time. Whilst I’m still not yet down to my goal weight, beauty products are my go to treat and I love to try new things and find new favourites. However, there are some products I will always repurchase, no matter how many pretty new alternatives there are out there.  Garnier Micellar Water  I was a convert...
