MY HOME IMPROVEMENT TIPS (& YOUR CHANCE TO WIN £3,000!)

  I’VE never been one to make life easy. Which is why when I was heavily pregnant with Elsie, I – together with my husband – decided it would be a really good idea to buy a house that needed tons of work doing on it. A project home. Something we could both get our teeth into.

PRETTY, COLOURFUL THINGS FOR THE HOME

NOTHING delights me more, I don’t think, than the fact that my three year old daughter adores books just as much as I do. As a total and utter bookworm, it was something that I had hoped would happen. The very fact that it has, makes me want to punch in the air and mum dance across the kitchen.

HOW TO BE ‘THE MOST BEAUTIFUL GIRL IN THE WORLD’

  OK, so this post is a little ode to Prince who passed away yesterday. But it’s also something I’ve been meaning to write about for ages. Beauty. Being beautiful. What is it? Who has it? And what the devil is it all about? Could YOU be the most ‘beautiful girl in the world’?
