Food & Fitness Friday – How I’ve Lost my Baby Weight Alongside Breastfeeding 

This week has been national breastfeeding week so I thought it only fitting to incorporate feeding Benjamin into the post. Eight months into breastfeeding and we are still going strong. I’m really proud of both of us to have made it this far, and I have high hopes we will make it to my goal of a year, and perhaps even beyond.  There were many reasons behind my choice to...

Beauty – Why I’m Not Ruling out Botox – My Visit to the Launch of sk:n Bournemouth 

I like to think I take pride in my appearance. Although, as I’ve mentioned previously, my wardrobe since becoming a mum consists mainly of jeans and a variety of striped tops, I make sure my hair is brushed before I leave the house and I apply basic makeup daily.  I’m not ashamed to admit that I’ve considered having surgery before. I have always had fairly small boobs and I had...

Our Santorini Wedding – 9 Weeks to Go! 

I was hoping to write this update and be in a more positive place than my last post on the subject but unfortunately I am still not getting the answers we want from the wedding coordinator in Santorini.  As somebody who works in the wedding industry myself, I’m pretty fed up and in disbelief that they would want a bride and groom to feel so negative so close to their...

My Alternative Bullet Journal – How I’m Planning to Get Organised 

I’ve always loved notebooks. I tend to stockpile them, buying pretty ones and stashing them away, forgetting all about them without ever using them.  When I first heard about bullet journals around a year ago I loved the concept. I bought myself a cheaper version and had a go at making it look like the ones I saw all over Pinterest. I didn’t quite succeed, and worse still, I didn’t...

Mummy Mondays – Love-Sticker Wall Decal Review 

Cameron’s been through quite a lot over the past few months. He’s welcomed a baby brother, moved house and school, and had to get used to yet another shift in our family dynamic as Benjamin takes most of my attention.  When we moved house, Cameron was really excited to have his own bedroom as he had been sharing with his sister. He loves having so much space all to himself...

Food & Fitness Friday – Celebrating with Happy Hour at Taco Bell 

The past couple of weeks have been a bit of a rollercoaster ride for Ed. He’s finished his open university degree, a degree he had been completing alongside a full time job for the past six years. He’s also applied for and been offered a training position as a teacher, the change of career he has been working towards with his degree, and one which will be a real positive...

Addicted to Social Media? Why I’m Going Tech-Free One Day a Week 

Hi, I’m Emma and I’m addicted to my phone. Yes, it may sound funny, but I’m serious.  I’m sat up in the small hours of the morning, feeding Benjamin, and coming to the worrying realisation that the reason I feel like time is always going by so fast is this addictive little gadget in my hands.  I am almost constantly attached to my phone. Even when it runs out of...

Wedding Wednesday – Behind the Bride – Hannah 

This week I spoke with Hannah from The Amphletts about her beautiful big day!  First of all, congratulations on your marriage! When was the big day?  Thank you, we were married on Saturday 4 May 2013. Tell me a bit about yourself and your partner. When and where did you first meet?  We met via an online dating site in early 2006 and after a few weeks, we met for...

Benjamin at 8 Months 

The months are still flying by. I feel like an awful mum as I actually totally missed Benjamin turning 8 months on Sunday. In my defence, we had an absolutely amazing weekend and I spent Sunday being the ‘hostess with the mostess’ at our family barbecue.  Better late than never, I did a little photo shoot in the garden with Benjamin’s milestone cards. He finally started sitting up unaided properly...
