Food & Fitness Friday – The 10 Minute Workout DVD that I Swear By

I’ve been really trying to make more of an effort with my fitness over the past couple of weeks, having fallen into very bad habits since Christmas. Although I don’t feel like I need or want to lose a huge amount of weight, I would like to tone up, feel healthier and more confident, especially for our honeymoon in a few weeks time. I’ve been using some of my old...

Beauty – Improving my Sleep with the Feather & Down Range

I make no secret of the fact that I don’t get enough sleep. As a busy mum of three, I am almost always on the go, and even when I stop and lie down at night, my mind struggles to switch off. I have always been a bit of a worrier, and I was diagnosed with anxiety last year. I find it very hard to relax, and falling asleep has...

Wedding Wednesday – Santorini – The Dream Wedding Destination

Destination2, who specialise in luxury travel, are asking where would be the perfect destination for your wedding or honeymoon abroad, a campaign I can definitely get on board with having recently got married in Santorini. I always dreamt of getting married abroad. I’ve suffered from Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) in the past, and the promise of guaranteed sun and blue skies on our wedding day was incredibly alluring. When looking...

Mummy Mondays – The Great Oreo Cookie Quest

If there’s one thing my kids love, it’s Oreos (closely followed by Minecraft, but that’s a whole other post). So, when Britmums got in touch about The Great Oreo Cookie Quest, asking whether I would like to be involved in the campaign, I knew it would put a smile on their faces! The Great Oreo Cookie Quest is an interactive, fun way to win some fantastic prizes, including a totally...

5 Things I Would Tell My Younger Self

Hindsight is a wonderful thing isn’t it? You can look back on past mistakes and wish you had done differently, or you can realise that actually, everything both good and bad happens for a reason and move on from the past. Don’t get me wrong, I get that it’s sometimes easier said than done to do this, but through my CBT sessions, I have realised how damaging it can be...

Beauty – Relaxing & Unwinding with the Detox & Calm Beauty Box from allbeauty

I am going to let you in on a secret. I’m a blogger, who writes about beauty, and I have never tried a beauty box before. With so many to choose from these days, I think I have become a bit overwhelmed about which one to go for. When allbeauty emailed me offering to send over their new limited edition box, of course I said yes. It was about time...

Mummy Mondays – Cameron and Carly Join the Mini Bakers Club

I love baking with the children. I used to bake a lot when I was younger and then gradually I stopped finding the time for it, so I was very excited when the team behind the Mini Bakers Club got in touch and offered to send Cameron and Carly their very own personalised box in the post. The Mini Bakers Club is craft & baking subscription box for children, providing...

Mummy Mondays – Make Your Own Farm Set

Last week, when the now infamous ‘Beast from the East’ set in, Bournemouth got snow for the first time in five years. Carly, having been only a few weeks old the last time we had snow, was very excited to get out and make a snowman, until she realised just how cold it was out there! The children ended up having two days off school, and the cabin fever started...

Experiencing The Real Greek with Bournemouth Bloggers

Having got married recently in Santorini, you might be under the impression that Ed and I are big fans of Greek food. In actual fact, our time on the island getting married was the first, and only time, I’ve sampled any Greek cuisine. I’m what you would probably refer to as a bit of a fussy eater generally. I’m not as bad as my Mum, who really doesn’t like dishes...
