If you were to ask my husband to describe me, he would probably start with ‘bloody mental’. I am a bit scatty, I get all flustered sometimes when I am trying to hold a conversation and let my thoughts run away with themselves. I am also ridiculously emotional since having my daughter and find myself… Read More Why I’m Learning to Meditate.
Where has the summer gone?! A few weeks ago we were cavorting about in dresses and sunglasses which lasted until the weekend just gone and now it’s back to wellies and raincoats. Luckily we did manage to enjoy the sunshine while it was here with a few National Trust visits, but this week has mostly… Read More Rain, rain, go away… #LittleLoves
I have spoken before about how leather seems to by synonymous with quality and durability. It is almost a right of passage to head off to get your first pair of leather shoes as a kid, you wouldn’t be seen dead in anything other than leather shoes at an interview (bit ironic that something died so you… Read More Let’s talk about vegan leather.
I spend a hell of a lot of time searching for information on what is going on in the ‘vegan’ community, things like which restaurants are finally adding vegan options to their menus or which supermarket has started stocking my favourite dairy free milks. I thought it might be useful to do a little monthly ’round… Read More Vegan News Round Up – June 2017
I wasn’t sure how to approach this post. I considered making the title ‘How can you be more ‘green’?’ but then I worried people wouldn’t click on it because it seemed too preachy. It’s hard to find a balance between sharing knowledge that you think is interesting and important and becoming the guy everyone scrolls… Read More A quick and easy way to become more sustainable today.
I woke up this morning to the news to see that Manchester had been victim to a suspected terror attack. I spent this weekend in Manchester at a blogging conference so I feel a bit ‘closer’ to this tragedy than I might normally. I cannot believe that someone has targeted a concert primarily attended by children.… Read More How do we talk to our children about terrorism?
I have spoken before about my how fussy my toddler is. Mealtimes are a nightmare. I love food, my husband and I are complete foodies and a beige freezer diet makes me so sad but sometimes that is all she will eat. After Gino D’Acampo’s comments about ‘stupid parents’ being to blame for fussy eating… Read More Toddler Fussy Eating: Am I a ‘stupid parent’?
This is the second instalment of #LittleLoves. We’ve had a pretty relaxed week to be honest, I have a uni assignment due soon which I haven’t spent nearly enough time on and Joe’s hours have been all topsy turvy with him doing days instead of nights which has thrown my evening routine out somewhat. I… Read More A Weekly Round Up #LittleLoves – A Lazy one.
I have been doing a lot of research lately in to minimalism. By research obviously, I mean watching YouTube videos (Jessica Avey and Pick Up Limes are my current favourites) and it has really inspired me into minimising my life. We have recently moved into a new house and we made a conscious effort to not… Read More Minimising my life.
Next weekend I will be attending my first blogging conference, Blog On MSI in Manchester. I cannot wait. Firstly, to attend all of the sessions that tickle my fancy and secondly because it is a weekend away. I can chat, drink and be merry and not have to ask someone if they need the toilet… Read More The Blog On Ice-breaker
