LIFE LESSONS FROM 2016

THE end of the year is upon us. And what a year it’s been. Globally, I think we can probably all agree that 2016 has been a bit of a bleak-fest. Trump, Brexit and Aleppo as well as scores of celebrity deaths have left many of us reeling. But tomorrow summons a new dawn. A new year to get our excited mitts on and I for one cannot wait. 2016

HAIR TODAY, GONE TOMORROW?

ONE of the biggest shocks I ever had after giving birth to my daughter Elsie was the day I realised my hair was falling out. I can’t remember exactly how long it was after Elsie’s arrival when this first happened but I seem to recall it being a good few months into new motherhood and that it lasted for quite a while too. There are many things people don’t tell

FIRST IMPRESSIONS: COSATTO WOW TRAVEL SYSTEM

I DIDN’T think it would be possible to fall in love with a pram. But such is motherhood. Always full of surprises! At 36 weeks pregnant, I am now weeks or perhaps even days away from welcoming our much wanted baby boy into the world, so am all kinds of busy sorting out final preparations for his arrival. And thankfully, one major job is already ticked off the list, as

REVIEW: DISNEY ON ICE FROZEN

BEFORE I became a mum, I was a little cynical about Disney shows and the like. I couldn’t see why families would save up for months to take their children to go to Disney World or to see a Disney On Ice show. But then last year I went myself for the first time with Elsie and well, what can I say but the magic got me too! I felt

SPONSORED POST: LIFE INSPIRATION FROM OKINAWA

AS we come to the end of the year, it’s inevitably that time for a little self reflection. I don’t know about you, but for me, once Christmas celebrations are out of the way, I like to use the final days of the year to sit back, reflect and think about the year that’s just gone by and what is possibly to come. For many people January is a bleak

35 WEEKS PREGNANCY UPDATE

WELL, it’s safe to say I haven’t got long left now… As I waddle around more and feel our boy moving inside, wiggling about as best he can in what tiny room he has left, I know that soon – all being well – he’s going to be here! This week I packed my hospital bag and got a little teary eyed whilst doing so (and not at the sheer

WHAT TO WEAR ON CHRISTMAS DAY

IN just six days time, the biggest day of the year is here. Oh, the excitement! The giddiness! The expectations! I love Christmas and one of the things I adore most about it, is that it gives us the perfect opportunity to dress as festive as we desire. Personally, I am someone who likes to twinkle almost as much as a finely decked Christmas tree (!) so for me on

EASY PEASY SAUSAGE PASTA WITH BARILLA

AS soon as Elsie gets home from school, she wants to eat. And eat lots! She’s always super hungry after a hard day in reception and so I try to be pretty organised with what I’m cooking for her tea that night. But it’s not easy is it?! Sometimes we don’t have stuff in the cupboards because it’s near our weekly food shop time. Other times she doesn’t fancy something
