Doing Makeup On My Three Year Old

There’s no hiding from the fact my Hubby is extremely outnumbered. He’s even begun to pick pink or girly things from shops over a more masculine version. Like pink shower gel instead of a green or blue for example. I love that I have daughters. I have visions of shopping, spa days and afternoon teas when they are older. I …

This month I have decided to join in with the Blog Every Day in November (BEDN) blogging challenge. It’s meant to be fun and I only decided to do a few days ago so I’ve …

Getting Your Feet Ready For Summer & A Competition

Although it seems like the warm weather is a distant memory now, it’s always nice to treat your feet to some TLC and I was recently sent some lovely foot care goodies from Scholl and from justmylook to kick start the summery feeling. I actually frequently spend many evenings removing dead skin from Hubby’s feet for him manually with a …

“It has been two years since I last had my hair cut”

It has been two years since I last had my hair cut. Where we bleach it at home my hair is completely out of condition. I have split ends a plenty and I’m just so unhappy. It’s long, I like the length funny enough, but it’s nowhere near kept and tidy. My hair actually makes me feel quite self conscious and …

Body Confidence of a Mum of 3

I was interviewed today for a magazine. The main aim was to talk about what it’s like to be a young mum. I felt very nervous and anxious before the phone call and it was even worse whilst talking as I unearthed the past again. But during that call I was asked questions about what it’s like to be a …

Childs Farm Bubble Bath and Hair Detangler Spray Review

I have to admit that bath times are certainly not my favourite time of the week, and when I say week I mean it. I couldn’t hack being a mum that baths daily. There just aren’t enough hands on my body and hours in the day. However, I’m pleased to announce that P2 has warmed up to water and is …

I want to be a woman not just a mum!

Last year my hubby bought me a subscription to the Cosmopolitan magazine. I was given a choice as to what I wanted but I chose this one because I wanted something separate from the topic of parenting. I’ve never been into fashion, makeup or girly things. I’ve always worn whatever the heck was in my wardrobe which has either been …

“I look healthier and more awake than I did a year ago”

Somebody told me today that I look healthier and more awake than I did a year ago after posting this photo on my Instagram this morning.  Little did that person know that I’m hiding a badger stripe at my roots, bags under my eyes and a pretty fed up mood. It was a comment that certainly picked me up …

Pink Lining Changing Bag Review & Video

I am not a woman who owns tens of handbags, in fact I only have one and that one is a very smaller bag that happens to be a shade of brown and doesn’t match any of my outfits. It barely fits my purse in. I’ve never really needed to have a handbag, it’s very rare that I’m without my …

Schwarzkopf Color Mask Review

My hair and my image in general was getting me down after having P3. I’m sure you’re all aware that I decided to have a hair colour change. Quite a drastic one really, brunette to blonde!! I have to admit that I was hoping for a more “white” blonde than it is but becoming a blonde has really lifted my …

My Healthy Habit with Juice Plus – Start Day

Today I’ve started my healthy eating diet with Juice Plus. It means a lot more to me than just losing weight. It’s about my health. For a very long time I’ve been eating around ten or more biscuits each day and the meals I eat have been easy-to-cook options like pizza or ready meals. It’s become a habit and if …

Damart Cable Sweater & Boots Review

The cold and wet weather has truly arrived. It’s goodbye with thin fabrics and flipflops, and a warm hello to knitwear and boots. Damart sent me their Coussin D’Air Double Width Boots and a Cable Sweater to review. Since my Nan passed away I’ve been wearing a cardigan of hers, which happens to also be from Damart. The French company was established in 1953. …

“I’m uber excited about a new lifestyle and a new me”

If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter you’ll know that I’ve decided to change my appearance. Since giving birth to P3 I’ve felt quite low about the way my body is. I discussed this with hubby and he jokingly said I should dye my hair blonde as a change. This idea played on my mind. I’ve been blonde before, …
