My daughter turns four soon. How crazy is that? How am I the mother of an almost four year old?? She is at that age now where she knows what she wants too… a billion expensive presents, an epic party involving everyone she has ever met and everything else in between. Kids have absolutely no… Read More My Gosh June is Expensive
Isn’t it ironic. A few weeks ago I smugly sat here, merrily writing up a post about how I have all these plans for the Easter break and all the amazing things we were going to do. Week One I absolutely smashed it. I was super mum. We were out every single day, having a… Read More The Easter Holidays Broke Me.
As I mentioned in an earlier post, we were lucky enough to be offered the opportunity to try out the facilities at Jump In for free over the Easter Break, in return for our honest review. I tried my best to fill up the Easter holidays with fun activities so I didn’t go insane due… Read More Jump In – Shrewsbury Review

It feels kind of wrong to say ‘mum style’. It should just be ‘style’ right? Because being a mum doesn’t define me…yada yada yada. Except it kinda does. I base my daily outfit decisions on my plans for that day and obviously as a mum, my plans are determined by my life with my family.… Read More Finding my ‘Mum Style’.
Overall, I’m pretty crap with technology. When my husband first came at me rambling on about a Google home, I was pretty unenthusiastic if I’m honest. I had heard of the Alexa and yeah its cool when you see it on the advert but did we really need one? I mean, Ok so it can… Read More Making our Home a Little Smarter: Google Home, Nest, Phillips Hue, Chromecast…
I wake up, I make coffee and I lie down on the sofa for five minutes (25 minutes if I’m being totally honest here). Surely first thing in the morning I should be bouncing off the walls, ready to tackle the day? Granted, my 3 year old still wakes up once or twice during the… Read More Why am I tired all the time?
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Veganism is having a BIG moment in 2018. It is going seriously mainstream and it is about bloody time! One of the biggest things for me so far this year is the discovery of vegan ready meals. We love to cook, don’t get me wrong. My… Read More The Rise of the Vegan Ready Meal
