WINTER is here. Or certainly it feels like it, doesn’t it?! The dark nights and the cold mornings. I love this time of year, but like all of us, I struggle to rise from my cosy warm bed when it’s time to get up and face the day. So I was a little thrilled when the thoughtful team at belVita sent me a special hamper to help get my days

  I LOVE a good crisp. In fact you could say I’m partial to them. Some like sweet stuff – chocolates, cake etc – but me? Well I’m all about the savoury. Tucking into a bag of crisps is a real treat for me. The crunch, the salt, the deliciousness of them! (I know you know what I mean). So I was pretty happy to hear that Ritz (the world’s

Cooking with Gousto

SOMETIMES the thought of cooking another meal makes me want to scream. You know how it is. It’s been a long day, you’ve had little time to yourself, you’re – to be quite frank – knackered and by the time your little one has settled for the night, it’s almost 8 o’clock and you’re ready to collapse.

LIFE: Stuff I’ve fallen in love with recently. Discoveries and the like.

I WASN’T sure whether to put this post under my secrets or life category. After a little deliberation though, I opted for life in the end. (Because it’s what life is all about isn’t it?! Discovering stuff?) But anyway…I’m going off the point here. As it’s always good to show some appreciation, here’s a quick round up of little discoveries that I’ve loved or enjoyed recently. Or in other words,

FRIDAY FIVE: 5 things women need to STOP doing to their bodies

A FEW weeks into the New Year and I don’t know about you, but if I see another weight loss piece in the media or hear from another friend, about her new fad diet, I am going to scream. I’m all for self improvement but this obsession with bodies and diets, which is particularly evident at this time of year, is quite frankly driving me nuts. Why? Because most of
