Meghan Markle- I salute you

You may have noticed I’ve been really quiet over the last couple of months and it’s because we have news. I’ve been totally man down because of this little bean… Yep, morning (all day) sickness and exhaustion have been kicking my ass and it’s been all I can do to just get through a day and fall asleep with Alice at her bedtime. Which has meant no squeezing in time for blogging 🙁 Just before my scan Meghan and Harry announced their news and during the time I’ve been stuffing my face, growing out of my jeans, sleeping more than…

Finding balance

Life has been crazy the last few weeks to say the least which has meant the blog has been left a little quiet- sorry! Mummy and Alice time Firstly, Alice came home from holiday with her Dad and I wanted to soak up every minute with her before she started pre-school. I took the week off work and we went to the cinema, played, shopped for school and finished the week off with a trip to Cadbury World. Highly recommended by the way, even if Alice was most excited about playing in the park at the end! For an almost…

I have Dermaspa to thank for single handedly saving my eyebrows after they just about survived the over-plucking madness of the early noughties so when I was asked to try out the new Soprano Platinum ICE laser hair removal I knew I would be in good hands.

August Birchbox Review

Birchbox worked closely with no less than 10 amazing Etsy designers this month to offer a selection of different box designs. I got this little stunner from The Lovely Drawer who design and make customisable prints and wedding stationery. Dr. Botanicals Pomegranate Superfood Regenerating Sleeping Mask Inside was the usual 5 items, including two full size items! The first was this Dr. Botanicals Pomegranate Superfood Regenerating Sleeping Mask. I’ve never heard of Dr. Botanicals before but loved this before I even opened it…

My time as a single mum- Sharing time

I know I usually write about issues I faced during the two years I was parenting solo in this column, but this post is about a challenge I will continue to face as a result of my break up- splitting Alice’s time with her Dad. Last week I dropped Alice off at the airport for her annual trip to America with him, he has family there so inevitably this will be a yearly thing and I have to do my best to manage with all those miles between us. Family trips to America would have always been on the cards…
