A Little Life Update

•Features gifted items• I feel like I haven’t sat down and written a post about my life in ages. Obviously my whole blog is based around my life, being a lifestyle blog, but I tend to focus on different areas of it like review visits of local restaurants, toys that the children have been playing with and beauty products which I have used. I thought today it might be nice...

A Straighter, Brighter Smile with Instasmile

•Features Gifted Item• I have been self-conscious about my smile for as long as I can remember. As a child, I was backwards and forwards constantly from the dentist. I had numerous fillings and an overcrowded mouth, which meant I had to have an operation under general anaesthetic to remove several of my teeth. After this, I then had a brace, which made my teeth straighter, but also made me...

Going on Holiday as a Multi-Generational Family

Paid Post  My family has always been close knit. We love nothing more than a big celebration, where we have the chance to get together and catch up. I see my mum almost every day, and my nan at least once a week. It may not come as a surprise, therefore, that we have all been on holiday together, taking my own children along with us too. Having grown up...

Celebrating my 30th in Disneyland Paris

Last week I turned 30 and, to celebrate, myself and Ciara went on a bit of a whirlwind trip to Disneyland Paris, where we stayed at the gorgeous Newport Bay Club and spent a wonderful two days in the parks before heading back home again. It was totally magical, and just what I needed to see off my twenties. I’ve been to Disneyland several times before, as a child myself...

Work on Your Pelvic Floor with Vivi from Aneros Femme

Features gifted item  One of the things I try and do with my little corner of the internet is approach somewhat ‘taboo’ topics to reassure others that they are normal. I have spoken about both adult toys and my pelvic floor in the past and this post actually combines the two. I was recently contacted by Aneros Femme, an American company who have created a product which works to encourage...

Increasing Productivity with the Effici Planner

Working from home around a two year old, I sometimes struggle to motivate myself and actually get work done on time. I have so many creative ideas and it can be difficult to put them into action. I had been searching for awhile for something to help me be more organised when the lovely people behind Effici got in touch and offered to send across their productivity planner for me...

Fighting My Fears – Speaking in Public

Last Monday, I did something I was terrified to do. I put on my very own talk about monetising your blog and I spoke in public to a room full of people. On the day I was really nervous and my anxiety was through the roof, but I pushed myself out of my comfort zone, drew upon all the skills I have learnt in my CBT sessions, and I did...

Planning a Trip to Disneyland for a 30th Birthday

Ok, so as you probably know, I am turning 30 in just a couple of months at the beginning of May. I had been torn when it came to making a decision on how to celebrate this milestone birthday, as I had so many things I would like to do, but it simply wasn’t feasible to do some of them (Santorini, for example, was not only out of budget, but...

My Experience of the Mirena Coil – Two Years On

I have previously written about my experience of having the Mirena coil, both shortly after having it fitted, and a second post a year on to reflect on how I felt about it after everything settled down. I decided to write a further update as I now feel that my periods have returned to normal following the use of the norethisterone tablet to delay my period over our wedding in...
