It was watching Netflix Documentaries on the topic of animal cruelty and environmental issues surrounding veganism that finally convinced my husband and I to take that leap into living a life free from meat and dairy. I was interested to find out if simply watching the same documentaries that we had, would have the same… Read More Netflix Documentaries on Veganism: How convincing are they?
I have such a love/hate relationship with cooking. Sometimes, I could spend all day in there making something amazing and other times I want to eat a potato waffle sandwich. I am a bit of a maverick and pretty terrible at following recipes without meddling, I chuck all sorts in thinking it will improve it… Read More Vegan Recipe Boxes: A Mindful Chef Review
Cheese might be the thing I miss the most you know. Bacon is a close second, but cheese is just in all of my favourite meals and it is the thing I have found the hardest to give up. It is also the thing I have had the least luck finding a tasty substitute for…until… Read More Trying Vegan Cheese

Typical right. We were so excited to take Isabelle to see it, she is a massive… Read More A Disney on Ice Review, Kind of.
We decided (I decided, my husband disagreed with me setting up yet another direct debit) to get National Trust Family Passes last month. My friend has recently got them with her family and I thought it might motivate me to get out and about a bit more if we had passes and ideas for places… Read More Getting National Trust Family Passes
Last week, Isabelle and I drove to Warwick Castle and stayed over in one of the Knights Village lodges. First off let me just say, WOW. It was so much more than I expected. The drive there was traumatic, purely because I am a pretty terrible driver who usually avoid motorways and not only did… Read More The Knights Village at Warwick Castle
So as I am always one to follow a trend (my copper and marble house will attest to that) I saw a review on Facebook for Friction Free Shaving and obviously signed up immediately. The review was by what I can only imagine to be a beauty blogger, she was gorgeous and heavily made up,… Read More Friction Free Shaving: A Review by a normal mum who doesn’t shave her legs as often as she should.
